Why Samuel Padilla chose Albuquerque

This property was originally purchased because of the outstanding views and privacy that came along with the spacious acre. It has been passed down a generation and well loved by the family who still has ownership of this property.

What makes this house unique

This property was completely remodeled in 2013-1014. Everything was replaced including windows, doors, heating and cooling, electric, plumbing, flooring, fixtures, countertops, and all appliances. With this remodel the house has a modern southwestern style with grand entryway complete with floor to ceiling water feature commissioned from an award winning artist. Additionally this remodel opened up the space and allowed two extra bedrooms and one bath to be added into the previous spacious floor plan. The highest quality appliances and finishes were chosen for this house and no detail overlooked. This home comes complete with outdoor living and a built in Fire Master Grill, gas fireplace, and outdoor dinning table. The upstairs living area comes complete with a 70" TV and state of the art surround sound including exterior speakers in the outdoor living space. Large game room with beautiful barn style door includes two large flat screen TVs, seating area, a full bathroom, and luxurious Tempurpedic pull out queen sized mattress.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's gorgeous. You could easily put up cast here. The interior design looks like it's out of a magazine, and there's a HUGE master bedroom with an enormous walk in closet and a master bathroom with a jacuzzi. There's an outdoor grille, a built-in espresso machine in the kitchen wall, and it's against a mountain.

This house is gorgeous. My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights while we were in town for my wedding. We were blown away by the entire house when we arrived. It was very clean, everything is labeled (except for the light switches, which there are many!) and all of the furniture and finishes were very high end.

The location is fine, short drive to restaurants, shops and the tram to the top of the Sandias. Downtown was maybe a 15 min drive.

The manage of the property was very helpful and attentive.

I gave it 4 stars just because there were a few things that could have been better.

-The sound system was not working through out the home, mainly outside. We tried to figure it out, but it seemed as though the charger for the remote was broken. (Im sure this has since been repaired)

-As I said previously, everything was labeled throughout the home except the light switches. Would have been nice if they were, because there are a ton of them!

-The coffee/espresso machine was out for repairs (Again, Im sure it is back up and running)

Lastly, because the living room had those grand sliding doors, and the house gets the setting sun, the living room really heated up in the evening, and no matter how low you turned the thermostat it just never seemed to cool off.

Overall, this house was beyond what we were expecting. I wish we could have stayed longer! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone! It is a fantastic property.

Beautiful house, awesome view

  • 4 of 5

Home was wonderful with high end furnishings and appliances. View was awesome and very peaceful setting. The only thing keeping me from giving this rental a 5 star rating was the owners lack of responsiveness with some issues with wifi and ac in living area. Talked to him once about it and instead of sending someone to fix it he just gave us ways to work around it. Attempted to reach him multiple times after that first phone call with no returned calls or texts so just dealt with it. I feel like I should get some sort of refund as we spent the entire week without ac in main living area of home-- he offered $50 refund-- really --for doing without ac for a week on a $2900/wk rental. I feel this was unfair.

Gorgeous home! The BEST choice we could have made!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 13 adults coming from an out of state university for a conference that was being held in the city. We could not have found a nicer home to stay in. This home is breath taking, wonderfully decorated, with plenty of space, and very comfortable beds (matter of fact, I'd buy whatever mattress topper was on that king bed in a heartbeat if I knew what it was. I have never fallen asleep so easily). Even the adults who slept on the pull out couch said they were comfortable.

Sam was very kind and easy to contact if/when we had any questions. We also had the pleasure of meeting one of the women that cleans the house the day we arrived. She was lovely, too. All in all, we had a marvelous experience. (Personally, my best VRBO experience yet). We will be recommending groups from the university who travel to Albuquerque to stay here. It’s in a great location and hosts a beautiful view of the city.

Best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (10 adults & 2 small children) enjoyed the home, amenities and views! Everything we needed was there and then some. We held a dinner for over 50 people and not only was there plenty of room inside, there was additional space outside that, due to weather conditions we all stayed indoors.

The home owner was quick to respond to any questions and the use of the property was very easy. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Hands down we would choose this home again if ever in Albuquerque and recommend it to anyone with a large family. (It is not ideal for smaller children but we made it work.)

Thank you for the use of your home, Sam!
