THANK YOU for visiting my listing #339304. I hope Casa De Siesta LLC fits your needs, and that we can soon meet in person!

Hello future guest(s), my name is Richard and I am a Native New Mexican. My heart's desire is to offer an affordable, safe, and clean rental. And that's what I have achieved! My Casita is 980sqt. of beautiful and comfortable living space created and staged perfectly for you my guests. I live in the front home, on the property, so I am available to assist you if needed, but always respecting your privacy!

Look no further you have found a wonderful place to stay when visiting Albuquerque or New Mexico...

I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 25 years and I am an award winning Chef and operated my own catering business for over 12 years. Along with managing the Vacation Home, I also have dealt in Antiques and Collectibles.

My hearts passion is seeing that my guest(s) feel like family and are comfortable in their new surroundings.

Being that I personally manage and live on the property, I am only steps away or a phone call away if you need anything. My family has lived in Albuquerque for many generations, and my ancestry is from Spain and France,

(of royal descent!), or so they say! (ha, ha).

As you will experience, Albuquerque and New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, is a very special place to visit and live. Our weather is almost perfect, most of the time, with the most beautiful sunsets and mountains. A great asset for you the visitor is that I am very familiar with the City & surrounding areas and am always eager to share ideas and historical information!

As you will experience for yourself, the reason why I live in the Historic Downtown District is because it is truly a WONDERFUL PLACE TO LIVE! I enjoy all the rich culture and the diversity of the residents, the homes each with their own personality, nothing like cookie-cutter homes, a beautiful kaleidoscope of Heritage and ethnic flavor. My home is centrally located to most everything. The two freeways I-25 and I-40 are just a few miles from my door step. The Albuquerque International Sunport Airport is a mere 5.5 miles/10 min. drive as well.

One big reason I love the Downtown Area is because of it's charm and beautiful architectural designs of the homes and buildings: a combination of Victorian and Southwestern styles. This area is much more settled then most other parts of Albuquerque, the trees are larger and most folige is settled and grows beautifully in the Spring and just shows off during the Summer days! On Weekends the Downtown area is very calm and quiet being that all the workers leave for the weekend. It becomes your own little quiet getaway away from the hustle and bustle of daily work. And I extend a personal invitation for you and your loved one(s) to experience first hand!

I choose to walk daily for excercise, and the Downtown Historic District is VERY WALK-FRIENDLY and close to many tourist attractions. A few blocks West of the Casa is a Lower Corner Market a neighborhood grocery store, a full-service and self-service Laundromat blocks away. A Pizza Hut is just across the main street of the Casa as well as Fusion Latin Restaurant a local favorite featured on HGTV.

A bank and Subway Restaurant about 2 blocks East just a short walk away. Old Town and Route 66 is a 3 min drive, or a 15 min. walk away! It only takes about 25 min. to get to the base of the Sandia Mountains where you will be blown away by the vast beauty of our clear skys and outstanding unobstructed views, and Santa fe is only a 45 min. ride. A beautiful and magical city our State Capital. Can take Turqoise trail and go through Madrid, and old mining town, where Wild Hogs the movie was filmed.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Richard, Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your lovely Casita. You thought of so many amenities to make our stay comfortable. Your kind hospitality and transportation made us feel welcome and cared for. We particularly appreciated your kind help with obtaining a USA cell phone, which was essential.

You're not going to beat this place...no motel/hotel could even come close. About the funkiest quarters I have ever been in. The price is right. Neat stuff all over the place...movies (I don't watch them, but the're there), books, brochures of every sort, menus of good local restaurants, extra clean, great bed, great patio for the evenings, any pot or pan if you like to cook, and then there's Richard the owner. Super nice guy, great conversationalist, just wants one to be comfortable...and we were. My wife even got a few pieces of estate jewelry at resonable prices. BTW, covered parking off the street behind a locked fence. Try it, you'll like it...and no, I am not related to Richard!

Great casita

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we had stayed at a VRBO. We loved the casita with its cozy décor and fantastic furnishings. It was clean and comfortable and the owner was so helpful, friendly and informative. He even took us around to places we probably would have not seen otherwise. We will stay there again on our next visit to Albuquerque. Thank you Richard for such a wonderful time!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came into town for a convention and loved being in our own quiet space away from the hustle and bustle you find in big hotels. This casita is well stocked, (Richard has thought of everything) clean, and very comfortable. The bed, linens, and towels were great quality and quite satisfactory. The lillacs in the courtyard are in bloom and smell wonderful...it was a great little getaway. And there's a great little grocery store just a block away. You can tell from the minute you walk in that Richard has put a lot of love and care into the property and you can feel it...it feels like a home. You aren't going to feel that in a hotel...Ever! We highly recommend it!

Best locaation in Albuqueque

  • 5 of 5
WE spent twelve delightful days at Richard's casita in Albuquerque. The fantastically equipped, welcoming casita made our stay beyond what we ever expected. Our host was prompt picking us up at the airport and most accommodating in meeting our every need. He took me to pickup our rental car and delivering us to the railroad station when our stay was over. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with him and learning about the city. The plethora of information about the area was very helpful in guiding our travels. The casita has every convenience one could desire as well as being spotlessly clean. The outside space is large and a special place to enjoy the sun. The area is safe and in walking distance to downtown and nearby attractions. Old Town with it's shops and restaurants is minutes away. We walked to the best bakery in the city. A supermarket is only three minutes walk from the casita and one of the best restaurants, Pasion Latin Fusion, is even closer. Anyone visiting Albuquerque would do well to stay in this property. We have stayed in VRBO properties all over the world and this is one of the best. Thank you Richard for your efforts and help to make our stay fabulous.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
Richard is an excellent host and his Casita is so welcoming. I was at a conference and it was the perfect get away from meetings and crowds. I love cooking and his kitchen was better equipped than my own. The location is perfect, easy access to everywhere in Albuquerque. Definitely would recommend for a vacation or a work trip. There's a great little market in walking distance too. The neighborhood is so quiet and very safe. I walked around alone at night and felt very comfortable. Richard has put a lot of effort into the style and design of his place, so if you like lots of art and design, you'll appreciate it.
