Guestbook comments from the owner
We are new to Homeaway.com and this rental represented our first foray into this internet site. We worked hard at making the right choice among so many appealing offerings. We simply could not have done better than Sandia Mountain Condo! What you see is exactly what you get.........only better. This place is amazing. Absolutely spotlessly clean, fully furnished, environmentally friendly, beautifully decorated, bright, cheerful, and secure. The owners, Bill and Joseph, have taken a condo, lavished it the love and an eye to detail, and made it a home. The patio is a real joy and a relaxing place for a wake-up cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at sunset. Downstairs is compact, but oh so comfortable. As far as media is concerned Bill and Joseph have got you covered. (Be sure to listen to FM 95.5 for soothing music any time of the day or night.) The two bedrooms are upstairs at the top of a short set of stairs, complete with a well-secured metal railing which was greatly appreciated. The bedrooms, especially the master, is more than roomy and has a huge walk-in closet. Area rugs help make the pine flooring attractive. Lighting is no problem and the beds are more comfortable than the ones we use at home. The entire condo is as environmentally friendly as one could make it. Sandia Mountain Condo is relatively new, thus everything was in working order and well maintained. If you needed anything, the owners were only a phone call away. They have thoughtfully provided their guests with a three-ring binder full of maps, information, flyers, suggestions, and advice regarding shopping, touring, and restaurants (sample menus even!). Now, as to location, the condo could not be better situated. You are within a three block walk to Old Town and the many museums, a fabulous bakery is right out your font door and

in New Mexican food is only a half block away. Bike rentals, a splendid grocery store, 7-Eleven and more are all within walking distance. Back to the bakery. Their products, all made on site, are amazing, most especially the pizza. The green chile bread, multi-grain bread are fabulous. So are their sweets, especially the empanadas and the best biscochitos in the State of New Mexico. If you want to travel by car, the interstates are only blocks away with easy access. We are so glad we made this choice. You will too. Thank you, Bill & Joseph. Terry, Mt. Sterling, Kentucky

Owners Bill Davis or Joseph Hoffman purchased this condo in 2008

Our other vacation rental, located in a 100-year-old casita, provides an intimate, nostalgic feeling. We decided that we would also like to host guests nearby in a larger, more modern setting. Both properties are approximately 1/2 mile from Old Town.

No cleaning fee. We provide weekly cleaning and linen change for guests staying longer periods of time.

For bikers, walkers, joggers and birdwatchers, we are approx. 1.75 miles from Tingley Beach (fishing ponds), the Paseo del Bosque biking/walking/jogging trail and the Rio Grande itself. If you prefer, you can take the unpaved trail in the bosque (the cottonwood greenbelt) that parallels the river. Bicycle rental is just around the corner from Sandia Mountain Condo at Routes (routesrentals.com). They also offer tours.

Birdwatchers and nature lovers will not want to miss a drive south on I-25 to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, best visited in the colder months when thousands of Sandhill cranes, snow geese and other feathered friends overwinter.

For those a little less active, walk or drive the 1/2 mile to the Old Town area to visit the iconic San Felipe de Neri church, stroll and shop. Right there also are the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, the Museum of Natural History and Science with the Lodestar Astronomy Center, and the Explora Children's Discovery Museum. The botanic gardens and aquarium are located another 1/3 mile from Old Town. From here you can take the little train to the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo to spend a few delightful hours.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is 2.2 miles away (nhccnm.org). It has an excellent art museum with permanent and current exhibits. And if you're staying in our city for a longer period of time, try a Spanish course at Instituto Cervantes (www.albuquerque.cervantes.es).

www.indianpueblo.org will give further information about the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center ('Gateway to the 19 pueblos of New Mexico), located just 1.1 miles north of Sandia Mountain Condo.

In summary, you will not have a lack of things to do at centrally-located Sandia Mountain Condo! The owners, Bill and Joseph, can answer any questions you may have about getting the most out of your stay in Albuquerque.

Phenomenal

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I stayed in this condo. It was better than the description and the description was pretty darn good. It is located where it is easily accessible to area destinations. As other reviews have noted there is a friendly bakery right across the street.
The downstairs patio and the upstairs porch are beautiful.
The owners left detailed instructions for everything in the home and were available if we needed any assistance.
The condo was beautifully decorated. It made both my friend and I update and decorate our own places. The whole unit is put together very thoughtfully.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone going near the Albuquerque area.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week last year. (I don't remember the exact dates.) There was a record amount of rain during that time and we weren't able to go out as much as we liked. Thank goodness for such a wonderful condo. It had everything we needed to be comfortable. It was near everything: good pastry across the street, supermarket, gas station, other restaurants, and lots of museums. I travel quite a bit within the US and this is one of the nicest and homiest places I've ever stayed. The reviews last year made it seem too good to be true, but I took a chance and every word was the truth. It exceeded my expectations and I've felt guilty that I haven't written this review earlier. A couple of things not noted in the description last year was a private deck with seating and a nice, large enclosed patio and a large screen TV. Spacious. Clean. Well stocked with a variety of kitchen items. Enjoy!

All that was promised and more!!

We, a retired couple, spent five weeks in this chic, classy, convient and comfortable condo. It is amazingly well stocked with household amenities. The location is ideal, being a a short walk to the old town, museums and downtown. It is an easy drive to hiking paths along the Rio Grande, Petroglyphs and Sandia foothills. The landlords were very helpful in supplying info on hiking and other activities. They are very personable and accommodating. Any item we needed was delivered the next day. We had very high expectations based on the information in the listing. Our expectations were exceeded. We highly recommend this condo. Thanks again to Bill and Joseph.

The best!

This was the perfect alternative to the hotel scene. Beautiful furnishings literally invited us into "our home" for the week. 4 kiddos and myself, were very comfortable..With all the amenities at hand; nice beds, enjoyable kitchen supplies, and large private outdoor spaces, we loved our stay at this condo. It was conveniently located near Old Town, movie theatres, restaurants, Bio Park, and shopping. I really enjoyed the Christmas lights on the balcony...it made our New Year's Christmas celebration all that more special. Thank you so much for being such gracious hosts.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5
We were in Albuquerque for the Thanksgiving holiday and were fortunate to find this wonderful "home away from home". The owners have done an amazing job decorating and making this unit incredibly comfortable. There is a enclosed patio, state of the art kitchen, including washer/dryer and two very spacious bedrooms. (with great beds). Wireless internet, a great flat screen TV and plenty of readily available information on restaurants, day trips, etc., are provided. Within walking distance of Old Town, there is also easy access to restaurants, a grocery store and plenty of coffee shops all within walking distance. Parking is right outside your front door. We will definitely be return visitors whenever we are in Albuquerque to visit family.

One of the Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5
I travel with my job, and almost always find my housing throught VRBO. I just stayed in this condo for 5 weeks,and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The place was perfect. I can only think of one other place I ever stayed that was close to being as nice...and I do believe this place is #1. And I must add that I was in town through the Ballon Fiesta, and they owner's did not raise the rent
The condo is in a great area, close to Old Town and lot's of great restaraunts. The bakery across the street is indeed habit forming (great Pizza's). But if you want to cook at the condo it has everything you need. And a good grocery store just down the street.
The condo is decorated perfectly, from the stained concrete floor downstairs to the beautiful wood floors upstairs. Every room is showroom perfect. Joseph and Bill have set the bar real high. One thing for sure, if I ever come back to Albuquerque, my trip will be planned around the availability of this condo.
Thanks guys, I thoroughly enjoyed your place.
