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 Northeast Heights

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 model 400RETS is one of the most well appointed destination trailers on the market. The three 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.

A gem in a sea of ABQ casitas

  • 5 of 5

So I wanted to surprise my husband on our 15 yr. anniversary. He knew we were going to Albuquerque, but that's all. I searched for weeks on home away, and I've booked casitas in Abq before, but I wanted something special and boy did I find it. Jeff has an amazing piece of heaven here. It is secluded, peaceful, romantic (without being gaudy) and rejuvenating.

Both hubby and I loved it! From our drive up the mountain and onto this beautiful property until we sadly had to leave. RV itself is immaculate. Super clean, roomy for the two of us and was fully stocked. The kitchen has everything necessary with a full size fridge, you have a range/oven if you cook (lol). The bathroom had a big shower with great water pressure, and the bedroom had plenty of storage plus a big comfy bed. The living room has a great TV, a fireplace, and I enjoyed the comfy chair with both back and foot massagers! Now the outside!!!! WOW! You have several cozy seating areas, a grill, different heating units, the hot tub, and crow's nest (watched a gorgeous sunset from here) and a great veggie/herb garden. By the way Jeff, I brought some green onions, chives, and mint home with me. Yum!

Not if this isn't enough, you also have a recreation room with so much to do in there. Hubby and I had "friendly" games of table tennis, pool, and darts. I also enjoyed the infrared sauna... so relaxing! Two bikes are available to use and we so want to go back during summer and try paddle boarding and kayaking in the river. This room also has a TV and lots of music/mp3. Hubby and I danced in there and also watched game 3 of the world series while shooting pool.

The location itself is great and Jeff has a book full of info on local attractions and train schedule to Santa Fe! You are close to everything but away from the noise. Went to our favorite restaurant Thai Vegan, it's delicious! We also had a great night of salsa dancing at The Cooperage, this is a steakhouse that has a designated area for dancing. They had a great live band Son Como Son playing, we had a blast!

Jeff, we can't thank you enough for sharing your wonderful home with us. We will definitely be back. So many extras, just not having to rent bikes is a big plus, and you have so much more. We hadn't played pool since we were dating, thanks for helping this 15 yr. couple remember the good 'ol days and recommit to 15+ more. You deserve 10 stars!!!!!

Very unique place! Everything was perfect. Was my husbands first time in New Mexico and first time staying in a RV. View from property was great and the RV was well equipped with everything you may need, (including scotch tape, which I needed) BUT it was not cluttered. The game/exercise room was a great bonus and wish we had more time to just enjoy the fire pit, sauna and views. Thank you!!

Awesome Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Jeff was very easy to work with and answered all our questions very promptly. They had all the local touring info and also had some suggestions of places to see and restaurants to enjoy. The rental was very clean and stocked with everything we would possibly need for our weeks stay. Loved the indoor fireplace on those chilly mornings! Our favorite spot was sitting outside in the evenings with the fire pit going and listening to all the noises of nature. The crow's nest was an amazing place to sit in the morning or evening to watch the hot air balloons and the sunset! Truly the 'Land of Enchantment'!

Until we meet again!

What a great value

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier about our recent stay at Jeff's place in Albuquerque. The trailer was huge and was regally appointed. You don't know that you're staying in a travel trailer. The patio is large and you won't believe the recreation room until you see it. They even had a garden that you were welcome to pick your own herbs and tomatoes. The location is great in the foothills overlooking Albuquerque and the Rio Grande valley. Jeff was always checking on us to make sure that we were happy. 6 stars.

Doesn't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at many vacation rentals, and this one is at the top of our list. Jeff, our host, is one of the most accomodating and nicest hosts we've had the pleasure of meeting. He totally respects ones privacy but is available at a moments notice for any concerns or issues you may have. The RV is very upscale and almost everything in it is top of the line. The bed was so comfortable, nice shower with hot water on demand. The place was meticulous! The outside was like a little paradise, with beautiful potted plants, water fountain, Kiva fireplace, and propane fire pit. There were so many amenities and features that there's just too many to name. Right next to the lot is a recreation building with a pool table, ping pong table, air hockey, exercise equipment, large screen TV, stereo, card table, basketball, infrared sauna,bicycles etc. etc. There's so much to keep one busy that you may never want to leave. However, we took the leisurely drive - 2 hrs one way to visit Lake Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch (home to Georgia O'Keefe). Well worth the drive. Also did a tour of 'Oldtown' and took the Sandia Tram at sunset which was less than 5 minutes away. Many good restaurants nearby and there's a nice grill to cook on at the site. The Sandia Casino was 10 minutes away and we were impressed, it even had bingo. Albertson's and Trader Joe's were close by. The highlight of our stay was going up to watch the sunset from the 'Crow's Nest' at the top of Jeff's home. The location is very peaceful and quiet, could hear some coyote's in the distance. So happy that Jeff allowed us to bring along our well behaved Pomeranian, or else we would've never discovered this 'hidden gem'.

Albuquerque's North Albuquerque Acres is a semi-rural suburban setting that offers a a sharp contrast to the closely spaced homes and congestion found in other neighborhoods. Our guests often comment how quite and peaceful the area is compared to other parts of the city. With its close proximity to the Tramway it is an ideal location from which to set off on day hikes in the Sandia's, bicycling along the foothills, and skiing. The area provides easy access to the highways, grocery stores, restaurants, and casinos (Sandia Resort & Casino is just 3 miles away). The Santa Fe is just over an hour away via a scenic train ride to right to plaza. An ice skating rink, tennis courts, and parks are within walking distance.
