Albuquerque House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Romantic, rustic hideaway in a true 'oasis in the desert'. This casita is part of a property on the national historic register. Los Terrones Adobe Casitas is located on historic Guadalupe Trail in the Village of Los Ranchos. Authentic adobe construction with exposed vigas (beams) and brick floors throughout, huge picture windows on the east side which look onto acres of green lawn and mature landscaping where roadrunners and other birds love to linger. Perfect launch site for hot air balloons.

The larger bedroom has a queen-size memory foam bed, desk, nightstand. The second 'Blue Room ' bedroom has 2 twin bunk beds, a nightstand, and wardrobe. There is a rollaway bed for an extra guest, and a crib that can be set up for infants. The small kitchen is comfortable and completely equipped. The bathroom has a shower and authentic Talavera hand-painted sink. Authentic southwest decor and old world charm prevail throughout. Please be aware that our casita was built in the 1870s, and as a result, the doorframes are lower than those in modern constructions. On the west side of the property is a private, fenced yard with table, chairs, and a gas grill surrounded by trees and bordering Guadalupe Trail.

This casita is located on 6.5 acres of green meadows canopied by huge 100 year old cottonwood trees in a semi-rural environment called Los Terrones. Peaceful and quiet yet conveniently close to the freeway, this property provides easy access to all parts of Albuquerque and surrounding areas. Perfectly situated for balloonists, the Balloon Fiesta Park is only 5 minutes to the northeast. We are only 15 minutes from the airport, 1 mile to the Railrunner train stop, and 45 minutes by car to Santa Fe. Old Town Albuquerque and the Aquarium/ Bio park are just a short drive south down Rio Grande Blvd. Bike paths, a health food store and the “antique mile” along 4th Street are within walking distance, and it's a short drive to Casa Rondena Winery and large shopping malls across the Rio Grande.

Please call Jan, Tony, or Tim for more information and extra availability.

About The Owner

As an Air Force brat I grew up all over the world, but my heart always belonged in New Mexico where my grandparents lived. My wife is a native of New Mexico and we both enjoy traveling.

The Owner purchased this house in 1985

Why The Owner chose Albuquerque

This unique property belonged to my grandparents and I always enjoyed visiting it in my youth. It is a piece of paradise, a semi-rural setting hidden within a metropolitan area which makes it close to nature but also close to all the conveniences of the city.

What makes this house unique

We love the easy access to all parts of Albuquerque and New Mexico while enjoying the tranquil, green, natural environment and historic ambiance. The trip to Santa Fe, which we enjoy visiting often, is very short, whether by car or the Railrunner train.

Southwest trip with the girls

  • 5 of 5
This place was wonderful. We loved the true feeling of a real New Mexico Casita. We had everything we needed and the location was close for all of our day trips. We enjoyed being able to have morning coffee on the back patio. Quite and peaceful. Tim and Tony made us feel welcome. We are looking forward to staying there in the future. We were pleasantly surprised to find this area had a lot of history and was just off Route 66. We enjoyed breakfast at the El Camino Cafe that had a lot of Route 66 feeling and great food.

Great discovery!

  • 5 of 5
This casita is very comfortable and was perfect for our stay in Albuquerque! We come to Albuquerque often but had never discovered this part of the town before. We love it, and as several guests had stated before, it truly is like an oasis in the middle of the big city! The location is great and is close to lots of things to do in Albuquerque. The kitchen had everything we needed. The swamp cooler worked very well for cooling the master bedroom, kitchen and living room. The front bedroom was a little warm but fans were provided and worked fairly well. Tim was very helpful when we needed him but gave us space which was great! We would definitely stay here again when we are in Albuquerque for longer trips!

Charming Old Casita

  • 5 of 5
Excellent rate on this charming adobe casita with brick floors thruout. Very comfortable and well stocked. If we needed anything, the manager was most accommodating. Stayed there in past and will stay in future. Good location in north ABQ close to I-25 and Paseo del Norte, and fairgrounds for Balloon Fiesta. Be sure to go to close restaurant Casa de Benevides....lovely place to dine.

Great for a family with small children

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely 4-day stay in Albuquerque in June of 2013, and this little casita added to the charm of the stay. With two small children ages 3 & 6, we have learned that staying in a home is the way to travel. The casita is absolutely adorable and had real New Mexico flavor. It's small, but fine for our small family (it might be a bit cramped with older children). We were cool and comfortable, even in June, with the exception of the small bedroom that got pretty warm and stuffy. The fan helped, as did having the windows cracked. We had our girls take quick, cool showers before bed so that they could fall asleep, and the room cooled down nicely overnight.

We enjoyed making all of our meals there, so as not to worry about restless children in restaurants, and we found it nice to grill and eat outside. The backyard is tiny, but fine for two little girls to make fairy houses in! It feels rural, and there are several nearby properties with animals. My children enjoyed hearing the roosters crow in the morning and saying hello to the many cats on the property.

We were especially happy with the location. We weren't sure how convenient it would be to Albuquerque sight-seeing, but it took us no time at all to get to the BioPark and Old Town for the museums. In fact, had we not stayed in the North Valley we probably never would have driven on the lovely Rio Grande Blvd, a drive I enjoyed each day. I understand the property is also very convenient to the Balloon Fiesta and Hot Air Balloon Museum, although we didn't visit that area this trip.

We would definitely stay in this property again, and would recommend it to other families with 1 or 2 young children.

Two month stay

  • 4 of 5
This was a nice casita which was perfect for my two month stay in ABQ (I was on a work assignment). The casita had everything I needed (bed lines, towels, equipped kitchen, high speed wireless internet). Located close to the Rio Grande River there was great access to walks and trails in the neighborhood while still being only a 20 min quiet easy drive to the city center (or take the bus at a stop 1/4 mile from the house). The photos give an accurate picture of the casita and I have no hesitation in recommending it as an affordable, nice place to stay in Albuquerque.
