About Keira Moore

We have lived in Corrales since 2000. We have put much money, time, and sweat into our home. We enjoy this small village and the accessibility to Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. We have owned our own business for 30 years and it is now time to wind down and share our home with people.

Keira Moore purchased this studio in 2000

Why Keira Moore chose New Mexico

We fell in love with the idea of living in a small community with land and a view.

What makes this studio unique

This property gives us the pleasure of a quiet country feel with a mall and the big city just blocks away. Peace and quiet with all the necessities nearby.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to take a personal retreat and found the "Love Shake." It was exactly what I needed. Cute and cozy with a private patio where I could sit and read and watch all kinds of critters (Quails with new babies, chipmunks, lizards, rabbits even a Roadrunner). Keira and Rick were great hosts, providing all the essentials as well as special consideration for what I needed. They have created an absolutely beautiful compound. The location is perfect, a real sense of seclusion but minutes away from anything a person could want from restaurants to any kind of store. Corrales is a charming village and this would be a wonderful location for anyone attending Balloon Fiesta.

Lovely Studio in Corrales

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to New Mexico, thanks in part to the darling casita known as the 'Love Shack'. It was the perfect size for a single traveler (as I was on this trip) but would also be fantastic for a couple to getaway as well. Comfy bed, beautiful decor, basic kitchen necessities (stove, fridge, microwave, etc.). It was a very warm inviting atmosphere from the time I arrived with the soft music and delightful scents that were welcoming my arrival. The beautiful property is in a nice area and nestled at the end of a road atop a hill in the charming town of Corrales. It's a quick ride into Albuquerque/Rio Rancho and there are also several unique shopping and food selections in the town of Corrales as well. I would definitely recommend the Love Shack to any single or couples traveling to the area. It could likely house a third person as well on the comfy futon, but space may be a little tight. Perfect for a romantic getaway; I hope to visit again very soon.

Too Good to be True? No Way!

  • 5 of 5

You know when you hear that something/someone/someplace is really fantastic and you think....."Does it sound too good to be true"? The Love Shack lives up to the hype. Keira and Rick have created a peaceful oasis with a spectacular mountain view. The casita is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and just the right size for a couple. There are so many extras: a heated mattress, a big screen TV with many channel choices, fast Wi-Fi, and a cozy covered porch with a gas heated fireplace.

I can truly say that the Love Shack is the finest property we've booked thru Home Away. Do not hesitate to give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent! Wonderful property, warm and friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Albuquerque for a wedding which was scheduled the same time as Balloon festival's (10/01 - 10/09) opening weekend; this made finding a room in Albuquerque "challenging". This was our first foray into the VRBO experience and will not be our last. We were pleasantly surprised at the peaceful, cozy and clean setting of the "Love Shack". This modernly appointed studio was comfortable and privet, we felt instantly at home, the property is accurately described in the owner’s description and pictures; there were no "surprises"

The owners, Keira and Rick are very accommodating and approachable; they gave good tips and suggestions to avoid the heavy Balloon festival traffic areas. We had no problems making our way from the property to down town Albuquerque in about 20 minutes.

We had three people (Mom, Dad and Son) in our group and were able to accommodate all of us comfortably (albeit - a little tight) with the use of an air mattress which we had brought with us. The provided WIFI gets 5 stars from the tech savvy son who speed tested it at 30+ megs! There are many dining and shopping options just minutes away in Corrales.

We would gladly stay here again next time we are in Albuquerque; THANK YOU for a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: Kevin, Thank you for the Internet test. We have been wondering about the speed out there. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and your family. Smart idea to bring the air mattress. We are glad you had a positive first experience with VRBO. Come again.

Peaceful, cozy retreat with spectacular mountain view

  • 5 of 5

This property and its eco-wise conservator-owners reflect the quiet beauty of the desert mountain. The size is just right for a single or couple for a brief stay and their hospitality is thoughtful, warm and genuine. Plus, free cookies! They had spot on recommendations for local venues and sight seeing. The remodeled guest studio is suitably equipped with amenities and is super comfy. I will always fondly remember my visit: the enchanting experience of this place and wonderful hosts. I'm so grateful that I booked here and hope to return often. Thanks!! Peace out and see you in Austin!
