This home is beautifully furnished and very comfy. There are many things that Robert and Nicole provide, from a well-stocked pantry and refrigerator to quality toiletries (soaps,lotions, even minor first aid items). One of the many highlights of this house is the lovely veranda, which our 12 year old found to be a great place to unwind the day with a book. La Vista is easily accessible to a great many kid-friendly places such as Old Town, the BioPark zoo and aquarium,Natural History museum, Explore! (children's museum), Petroglyphs Natl Monument and the Sandia Peak Tram. For those who like to do outside activities there is a trail less than a mile away where you can hike or run along the side of the Rio Grande. At this wonderful house there is an amazing kitchen and dining area from which one can see hot air balloons floating across the early morning sky while sipping on a warm cup of piñon coffee. This is truly a "distinctive dwelling" and this family of six looks forward to returning!
