This home, in a quiet, safe residential neighborhood of Albuquerque, has a fabulous location. Leave the neighborhood and you are near highway access, an excellent public library, restaurants, and stores, everything is at your fingertips. The house is spacious and furnishings in the house are adequate. Outdoor furnishings need replacing. The TV has cable, but due to being analog, dvr features do not work. The wifi in the house worked very well. We found a number of things we expected to be there were missing. A roll of toilet paper and paper towels, hand soap, mattress pad, blow dryer, grill utensils, steak knives, working can opener and peeler were purchases we made or improvised upon arrival. We reported problems with the cleanliness of the bed linens and carpeting. We detailed these items and the non-maintained condition of the front and backyards to the owner and she was very responsive to our email, and during the month for two other issues that arose. We rate this at 3-stars due to the amazing location, the immediate courteous responsiveness of the owner, and the reasonable rate for monthly stays.
We stayed in the house for a week and we did like the house but there were a couple things that they could fix....the toilet seat was about to break when we got there and did end up breaking the last couple days we were there, the shower curtain was pretty much almost falling off, there where several dead cockroaches dead on the ground through out the house, the beds were pretty uncomfortable, and the TV had to of been from 1980, But other then that the kitchen was a nice size and pretty nice with everything you need to cook at home. Backyard could use some work as well but there was a grill and chairs which was nice. Overall I would have to say it's a good place to stay and the price was great.

Owner's Response: I always try to keep the house repaired. I was unaware that these things needed repaired but as soon as I was notified, I had everything fixed. There are now new mattresses and a new large screen TV. The back yard is kept clean but will have sprinklers and new grass installed next spring. Several renters return every year as they know I do take care of the house and update when necessary.
My husband, mother in law, and I stayed here for 6 weeks. Not only was it a cozy home in a wonderful neighborhood with 3 parks within walking distance, it is close to the library, the Albq rose garden, the bus lines, and Abq uptown, a new shopping district. We had family over for Christmas dinner and they said this house was a wonderful find. We all agree on that!
The service by the owner was wonderful and very prompt, no matter what we needed. I certainly would recommend this home to others. It is great for the elderly and children. There is a grab bar at the side of the tub for those who need it. The back yard is fenced for visitors with children.
The sunrises from the dining room window were many times spectacular and the sunsets from the front door were often picture perfect. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and we felt at home the first day.

Great house, just as described. The best features were the backyard -- perfect for eating out -- and the comfy bed. Lovely decor and pet friendly! The quiet neighborhood and two close parks made this a great vacation stay. What a luxury to have WiFi as well...
A beautiful house for a great price.

Families with Young Children,
The house was perfect for us. It makes an ideal short term rental. The house is well equipped. The location is very convenient. It is a quiet neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. Everything was as described in the website. Library is within walking distance. Bike trails are 2 minutes away. Shopping is also close. Actually there are 3 parks within walking distance. The property was well maintained. Having WiFi in the house was very useful.
Venus has done a great job of insuring that our stay of 10 weeks was enjoyable. We had a problem with the washing machine one day, she had it repaired by the next day. We are very pleased with her service.
We would certainly recommend this property to others. We have already booked it for next year.
