About Brandon & Jennifer Robinson

My wife and I have lived in Albuquerque pretty much our whole lives. We truly love it here. We have owned rental property for nine years, and just recently decided to do a vacation rental. We love to stay in homes when we travel! We just recently purchased this home and remodeled almost everything in it. We both like to be active and love being apart of the community.

Brandon & Jennifer Robinson purchased this house in 2015

Why Brandon & Jennifer Robinson chose Albuquerque

There are three main reasons we bought this property. First, it is three minutes from our house. We have lived in this neighborhood for four years and we absolutely love it. It is on the edge of town, yet so close to everything. There is access to so much and we, personally, wouldn't want to live in any other part of the town. Secondly, we also wanted to be very close to our guests so if they need anything we are available. Thirdly, we love the house. We wanted to buy a home that we ourselves would live in. We love the layout of the home and the peacefulness of the neighborhood. We absolutely love the back patio and overall feel of the home. The kitchen has a great layout and the every square inch of space is used wisely. We love this home and our hope is that is provides our guests with joy, rest, peace, love, and relaxation.

What makes this house unique

This home has a cozy warm feel to it. It is light and bright, yet private. The back patio is large and has a variety of beautiful plants growing around it. The shade tree in the front brings some coolness to the hot desert we live in. The Balloon Fiesta Park is so close that when balloons launch you have a stellar view of them from the home itself. Many times we have watched the balloons from our own home and it is a magical experience. Our children and I have even driven around this area and watched balloons land, which is so fun to watch.

Great home for an extended family stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days with our grown children and one grandchild and it worked beautifully. The home served all our needs including thoughtful toys and play house for our 18 month old grandson and wonderful TV and coffee maker for the rest of us.

Great addition to any vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Blanca was a wonderful and beautifully decorated home with excellent amenities. The personalized note to my family and I was a sweet touch. The kids enjoyed playing with all the toys and the kitchen was stocked with so many unexpected things! It couldn't have felt more like home.

Beautiful home and excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I stayed overnight in this home while traveling to Phoenix to visit my brother. The house itself is beautiful, with large windows making the whole place feel light and airy. The rooms are good sized and the beds incredibly comfortable. The whole home is decorated beautifully. Also, this may seem like a small thing, but my mom and I both commented on it so I think others will find it helpful: the bathrooms were stocked with GOOD toilet paper, the kind you would have at home. Like I said, it's a small detail, but much appreciated.

The whole house was stocked well, with everything you would need. The patio was beautiful as well and fully fenced for those traveling with pets.

I can't praise the owners enough. Jen was amazing, the communication was fantastic, and there was even a personalized note waiting for us to welcome us to their home. There were also fresh baked cookies in the kitchen. And the home-made lotion in the bathroom is divine. They offer jars for sale as well (we bought out the entire stock at the house, so hopefully that wasn't a pain to replenish....it definitely was a life-saver in the dry Arizona air during our time there).

We only stayed the one night, but both of us had the same thought- that we wished we could have stayed longer! And this coming from two girls excited to get to Phoenix.

If we're ever in the area again, we would absolutely try to stay in this home again. The whole experience was fantastic and I can't thank the owners enough for providing such a wonderful resting place for us to stay. Travelling is tiring enough as it is, so having a comfortable and welcoming place to rest makes a huge difference.

Great spot, chic place

  • 5 of 5

Modern and uncluttered yet comfortable. We lacked nothing. Nice bedding and towels. Very very clean- even the fan blades and corners of the rooms were dust free. Highly recommended!

Nice place to hang your hat for the evening

  • 5 of 5

Brandon was welcoming as were the homemade chocolate chip cookies. The house was clean and well kept. 10-15 minute drive from airport. Beds were comfortable. We would stay again when in Albuquerque.
