Overview

About the property

Designed specifically for the discriminating traveler seeking a unique lodging alternative for their Albuquerque vacation. This quiet and tranquil setting has all the look and feel of country living yet within city limits and close to shopping and dining. Our numerous amenities and optional activities will give you a resort-like experience. Whether you seek a peaceful weekend retreat, an action-packed local adventure, or simply a relaxing stopping point during your travels we can accommodate you.

This top of the line luxury 40 foot travel trailer is located on a fenced and gated, well landscaped one acre compound in the most desirable section of Albuquerque. With three slide-outs and air conditioning there is plenty comfortable living space for two; and luxuriously furnished with dual leather recliners, message chair, fireplace, modern kitchen appliances, and five-star quality linens and towels.

It is stocked with everything you will need during your stay: A complete kitchen with top quality kitchenware plus your own shaded patio complete with gas grill, fire table, patio heater, misters, hammock, and a chiminea for a warm evening fire on our cool nights. Your private patio overlooks an organic herb and vegetable garden that you can pick through to complement your culinary creations; or check out what's growing in our greenhouse during the winter months.

You'll love the 360° views of our mountains and desert landscape from the crow's nest; the sunsets from this rooftop perch are legendary. By night you’ll have a spectacular view of the city lights or lean back in our gravity chairs for an unobstructed view of the Milky Way.

Relax at the end of your day in the hot tub and infrared sauna or enjoy a stroll around the neighborhood on our quiet rural streets. You will have exclusive use of the game room and fitness center. Choose between a treadmill, elliptical, rower, recumbent bike, weight machine, and dumbbells; or to unwind you have billiards, ping pong, air hockey, and foosball tables along with a Nintendo Wii.

If you prefer to play outside you'll find a volleyball/badminton net, cornhole, and tetherball on the property. Four tennis courts are less than a mile away (rackets provided), plus, a pair of comfort bikes are available to explore our local bike trails. You can also explore the wild and scenic Rio Grande River using our canoe and/or paddleboard.

About Jeff

My wife and I are long-time Albuquerque residents and know the area well. We truly love it here and will be your personal concierge during your stay. We will provide whatever recommendations you require to ensure your Albuquerque vacation exceeds your expectations. Our main priority is to make sure you have a perfect stay and an authentic local experience.

Why Jeff chose Albuquerque

This location offer a respite from the congestion found in other parts of the city. The large one acre lots and unobstructed views provide a peaceful rural setting that is difficult to find so close to town. You won't hear the constant buzz of passing cars in this area, just a bit of nature and plenty of peace and quiet. There is also very little light pollution in this part of the city so after the sun goes down you can enjoy a great view of the stars and city lights. This is also a great location to watch hot air balloons take flight in the early morning hours, or if you are looking for that perfect spot to take your morning run or bike ride and avoid the congestion found in other parts of the city.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

This is not your grandparent's RV. At 40 feet with three deep slide-outs, recreational vehicles don't get much larger or more luxurious. This 2016 Forest River Wildwood 400RETS is one of the most well appointed destination trailers on the market. The slide-outs coupled with extra large windows give it a spacious feeling that will make you forget you are in an RV. The furnishings include everything you would expect to see in a luxury villa. Plus, the large shaded patio is setup to be an outdoor extension of the kitchen and living space so you can enjoy our cool nights and warm sunny days in comfort.

Cozy, Relaxing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience…… we didn’t know what to expect renting an RV but what a surprise. The location at the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, the safe neighborhood, the accommodations and of course our gracious host Jeff made our stay an outstanding experience. After three and half hours of flight delays we finally arrived at Jeff’s place after 11:30 pm! Jeff greeted us and helped unload our bags and gave us a quick overview of the rental. We really didn’t get an appreciation of the place till the next day. Wow, the RV is clean, modern and cozy; it is set up with everything needed and more. We relaxed on the porch the next morning enjoying the arid weather, the birds in the garden and the sound of quiet………, urban noise nearly non-existent. The game room is awesome, flat screen, stereo, pool table, ping pong table, air hockey table, old school Millipede video game, sauna, his/her bicycles, exercise equipment, popcorn machine, Wii apparatus , card table, couch, bar stools and so much more! Jeff is the ultimate host, respects your privacy, and is there to help at a moment’s notice and just a great person to shoot the breeze with. We will see you again Jeff! Thanks for everything……….

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We were wondering what it'd be like to stay in a trailer... and it turned out to be great! Jeff and his wife truly did think of everything you could need during your stay and equipped the space with it all!

Jeff was the most gracious host, and he checked in throughout our stay to make sure we were settled and also that we had a full itinerary of things to do and see while in ABQ. We especially enjoyed the recommendation to visit Madrid, which, we thought, was better than Santa Fe!

We will be back and we'll recommend this place to friends and family heading that way. Our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to take advantage of all of the amenities Jeff's place had to offer!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this camper, the location and the amenities. Jeff gave us a thorough tour and run down of the camper and all of the other amenities available to us. He also gave us some great pointers on things to see and do when in Albuquerque. The camper was incredible. The living area was very large, with a great kitchen. By the way, the fridge was fully stocked with some local beer, airline size booze bottles, for a fee that goes to a local charity. All pots, pans, utensils, dinnerware, silverware, etc. were fully stocked. The kitchen had both a Keurig coffee maker with coffee pods, sweetener, cream, and a separate regular coffee brewer as well. The bathroom was very nice for a camping trailer. I'm 6' 1" tall, and had more room in the shower than most cruise ships. The mattress on the bed is obviously upgraded from a regular camping mattress, very comfortable.

The patio outside the camper has areas for sun worshipers and shade lovers. A chimnea all set for us to light, infrared grill, smoker, and a hammock were also right outside our door. Just beyond that was a garden with salad greens, and a wonderful herb garden.

The game room was great for an early morning workout, for mid-day games, and for a late night infrared sauna session. The bikes were all pumped up ready for us, and they worked great. The hottub was awesome as well, and felt great after long days hiking and/or biking.

Te view from the crow's nest was incredible. Watching the sunset on one side, and what the sun did to the mountains on the other was truly beautiful.

My wife and I loved our stay here. It was in a safe area, convenient to hiking and biking trails, and close to a number of restaurants. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Will book again!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Alb for an annual USSSA baseball tournament. I know what our thinking..you'd rather not stay in an RV in someone's back yard. Wrong!

Jeff's place is amazing! Clean, comfy loaded with anything you will need for your stay. We enjoyed the game room and gas fire pit out front. Take the stairs up to the Crow's nest for 360 views of ALB. I wish we would have came in earlier!

North Albuquerque Acres is a semi-rural suburban setting that offers easy access to the highways, grocery stores, restaurants, hiking & bike trails, and skiing.

An indoor ice skating rink, children's playground, tennis courts, and 15 miles of scenic bike paths are less than a mile away. Our state's most popular attraction - the Sandia Peak Tramway and Ski Area - is only 2 miles away.

Sandia Mountain is a hiker and mountain bike paradise; numerous trailheads are just a few miles away. It's a 10 minute drive to the NM Rail Runner where you can take a scenic train ride to Santa Fe.
