About Beverly Abshere

We are health professionals (dentist/PA) who live in a larger, multi-level home in Sandia Heights North. It is like coming home to a 'Resort' every night.

We love this area so much, that we wanted to secure additional property our family could enjoy.

As military medical officers in Navy Reserve and Air National Guard, we have had privilege to serve and travel, and are OEF/OIF veterans. Phil also Vietnam veteran (B-52 and T-28 instructor pilot).

Beverly Abshere purchased this house in 2007

Why Beverly Abshere chose Albuquerque

When this very unique property came up for sale, we jumped on opportunity (literally day before Phil deployed for Afghanistan). We wanted a single level, smaller, and cozier home for our special needs sister who resides with us (if ever needed in the future). But with smaller properties, it is so rare to have these million dollar views! It is a corner property, surrounded by natural and mature landscaping on 3 sides. Purchased from original owners who maintained and updated property well. We have enjoyed customizing it with original and hand-made Southwest furniture and artwork.

What makes this house unique

Sandia Heights epitomizes all the benefits of living in New Mexico. High altitude, pure air, stargazing, city views & mountain views, and high desert natural landscaping (evergreens and cacti). Extraodinary views of Sandia Mountain and The Tram from the large picture window inside. And panoramic views outside from the cozy, but unobstructed courtyard, that extends into extensive 'open space' and park areas.

Kitchen is well stocked with every gadget/appliance for gourmet cooks, grill-masters, or group entertaining at Holidays (turkey roaster, crockpot, blender, toaster oven, food processor, teakettle). Drip, French press and Keuring coffee makers. Loose teamaker. Mixologists have everything they need to prepare and serve cocktails in appropriate glasses.

For those needing to 'take care of business' during their stay, there is corner workstation with writing desk and comfy/adjustable executive chair. High speed internet with either wireless or fixed connections; and printer/copier.

Fabulous Location in Sandia Heights!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been more wonderful. The house is lovely and perfectly located for great views of the Sandia Mountains out the enormous back windows and of the Rio Grande Valley and city of Albuquerque out the front windows. Walks through interesting neighborhoods as well as hikes to the mountain can be accessed right out the back and front doors. The house is very well equipped, and the kitchen has every pot, pan, and utensil you could possibly want. Bev and Phil are wonderful hosts and are most attentive to ensure a pleasant stay.

Just Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, comfortable, quiet, clean, fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The wonderful view of the mountains is completely unobstructed. We have two small dogs, so we built a temporary fence around the backyard area using metal stakes and green plastic netting. I worked great, but we kept a close eye on them at all times. We saw lots of wildlife in the back yard...deer, rabbits, and we especially enjoyed watching the quail that came each day to feed on the birdseed we put out. Also good for the little four-legged guests is the short and pleasant walk up to the local park...very nice and something we all looked forward to each day.

Philip and Beverly are wonderful, attentive owners. They really care about their property and the enjoyment of their guests. I would highly recommend a stay here. We will definitely be back!

Spring Break - Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, well-equipped, comfortable and convenient to so many sites in and around ABQ. The view of the mountains is spectacular. In addition to the wonderful accommodations, the owners went above and beyond to make our vacation truly special. They thought of everything! Our family has rented vacation homes in many locations over the years and have had good experiences. However, we never received the incredible treatment we received here. We could not have been more pleased!

March in Albuerque

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I escaped a brutal Minnesota winter by taking refuge in Albuerque for few weeks in March. We were fortunate to find a great house and location in the foothills of the Sandia Mtns - A quiet neighborhood with awesome views and easy access to a wide range of activities. Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful in pointing out interesting things to do in the area. I'd recommend the tramway to the top of Sandia peak for any visitors. Also, if you want to take a day trip to Sant Fe, try taking the train. The depot is a short car ride from the house with the Santa Fe depot located a short walk from the central plaza. Cost is $10 round trip. A day trip up to Taos is also well worth the effort. The Rio Grande river gorge is beautiful and 20 minutes north of Taos you'll find the Rio Grand National Monument where the Rio Grand and Red rivers meet. The views are spectacular. Hope to return next March for a longer stay.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this Sandia Heights home with our dog from late January through early March. Primarily, we were looking for a reprieve from our bitter, northeastern winter. Also, we know and love Albuquerque based upon numerous past visits to the area. Winters there are relatively mild. During our visit, daytime temperatures generally ranged from the 40s through the 60s; 50s are typical. The usually intense sun makes it seem far warmer.

I would simply reiterate the comments others have made. The owners have accurately characterized the attributes of the house, neighborhood and immediate area, not overstating anything. We found the house to be extremely comfortable and homey. My husband easily carried out his business remotely from a comfortable corner of the great room where there is a large desk and excellent Internet connection. The most enjoyable aspect of the house is its setting. The breathtaking mountain views were an endless source of enjoyment and inspiration. In this setting, it is hard to believe that a few minutes away, we found a wide array of stores and eateries. The nearby trails made it easy for us to take our daily walks and to bicycle whenever we wanted. The owners are generous and pro-active. They met us upon our arrival and spent a good deal of time reviewing the ins and outs of the house, especially since we planned a long stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet. Certainly, the owners have attended to every detail in an effort to make their guests' stay comfortable and pleasurable. We were sad to leave and already are looking back upon our stay fondly.

Beautiful Sandia Heights Home

  • 5 of 5


1. Beautiful, well kept, comfortable home with incredible views both front & back.

2. House was immaculately clean upon our arrival (and we are very picky).

3. House was extremely well stocked with essentials for the kitchen & bathrooms.

4. One floor makes it appropriate for seniors and children.

5. Access to some of the best hiking trails in the Sandia foothills right out the back door. Also a very nice, quiet, and safe neighborhood to walk around & enjoy. Great road biking available (on Tramway) as well.

6. Great location right off of Tramway - easy access to NE Heights as well as freeways.

7. Wonderful & responsive owner - easy to get a hold of, plenty of guidebooks available at the house, and even a welcoming package of locally sourced food & drink upon arrival.

8. Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended to all interested in staying in ABQ.


1. Sometimes hard to leave the house to do activities around town because of how comfortable the house is and because of the beautiful views. We could have hung out there all day & been satisfied.
