About Nicolle and Robert

We work hard ... But have no fear we play hard too!

Whenever time allows, we can be found cooking up a fabulous concoction in the kitchen (red wine in hand) & we often share with our guests too;) or we may be out & about walking the rio grande with our 4 (yes! Four), four legged family: tucker, rio, bella and bo ... On many occasions, we visit the plethora of dog friendly restaurant patio's and can often be found on our bikes headed to a new SW Adventure in The Land Of Enchantment.

We absolutely love, love, love living in the south west & hope to share all of it's wonder & beauty with you!

Robert & Nicolle

Nicolle and Robert purchased this house in 2009

Why Nicolle and Robert chose Albuquerque

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.

Others face the mountain, that smooth yet imposing spine of the Sandias which covers with snow in the winter. Some homes get both views. In another pleasant paradox of Placitas life, these comforting views are always the same, and yet they change constantly thanks to the sun's evolving angles and the seasonal rebirth of high desert flowers and shrubs.

With it's convenient proximity to both the Albuquerque-Rio Rancho metro area and Santa Fe, Placitas is recognized as a unique – and a uniquely situated – bedroom community for these areas.

Placitas bringsThe blessings of clean, fresh air, truly great neighbors, and the presence of the majestic Sandia mountains shielding you from the often intense bustle of Albuquerque. Placitas has created a peaceful setting and provided all the best elements.

While driving through Albuquerque into Placitas, One might marvel at the way their spirit will be transformed upon entering this serene and magical place.

Breath deeply and allow the tranquil beauty of the pinon and juniper studded hills melt away any tension.

It is Natural New Mexico, nothing artificial, contrived or out of place.

Yes, as far as we are concerned, Placitas has it all.

Enjoyed frequent outings to the Jemez Mountains, a spectacular 45-minute drive from Placitas. The dances and feast days at Jemez Pueblo are surreal. Jemez Hot Springs is a natural retreat for restoring body and mind.

What makes this house unique

I Know we have said it ... But The Views are OUTSTANDING and it so peaceful & serene!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. It was comfortable for our group of five. You thought of everything and the extra's were very much appreciated.



The location was perfect for day trips to Santa Fe,Albuquerque etc.



Very peaceful and relaxing surroundings and well appointed & decorated. The upscale style was great and we felt spoiled.



Nicolle is a great host and went the extra mile to ensure we knew where everything was & how it worked. She provided great tips on restaurants ... We recommend : The Range & The Merc (groceries & deli).



Again,top notch & Beautiful. We wish we could stay longer! we will definitely re-book the next time we come to New Mexico!!!



Thank You & Hook'em Horns

Could not have been better - truly unique

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? The location is perfect - equal distant from Santa Fe and Albuquerque, and close to the direct road that leads to Durango. A perfect spot to celebrate parents' 60th wedding anniversary. Went up to Santa Fe for the day, then over to Durango to ride the train, and down to Old Town for the shops. The house was FANTASTIC--a true "Southwest/New Mexico" house: adobe, arches, niches with many personal artistic touches, huge wooden beams, gigantic windows and incredible views. Lots of wildlife: doves, rabbits, etc. Couldn't ask for more! FABULOUS BBQ set-up on porch--mesquite or gas. Nicolle was VERY helpful--lots of recommendations for restaurants. She truly MEANS it when she says "call me for anything you need!" Very rare. She went out of her way to make this very special celebration for our parents even more special, with a welcoming gift. You really do feel like you're staying at a friend's house. The only thing we didn't get to do was use the fireplace (they had even laid a fire for us, ready to go--so thoughtful, but we just didn't get around to lighting it).

We would come back for another stay in a heartbeat, and would HIGHLY recommend this house for anyone who wants a truly New Mexico experience!

Fabulous Vacation Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were immaculate. Ready to cook, means not only dishes, but spices as well. The "not your usual welcome basket" was actually a lovely tray of local champagne, chips and specialty dips! The beds slept well, and the view was fabulous. We definitely would stay here again.

Had a fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my best friend all met in Albuquerque for fall break and arrived to an absolutely beautiful property. The house is amazing and very well taken care of. The walkthrough is such a great idea, because it allows you to familiarize yourself with the home and ask any questions. Thank you all, so much, for allowing us to stay. We will definitely be back.

Excellent Property! Great Homeowner!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the property and all the 'homey' ammenities Nicolle and Robert have put int he house. From the stocked kitchen to the little details like first aid kit and bathroom supplies. The house was in a very unique neighborhood close to the Balloon Rally and Sante Fe and Shopping and restaurants. Nicolle was very responsive to our questions and offered up things to do and places to eat. The pictures on the WebSite don't do the home justice. The only complaint we could have was the weak cell reception in the hills and the internet was a little slow, but then again we were on vacation. We would highly recommend this home and Nicolle & Robert.

This Home IS AMAZING! NICOLLE WAS EVEN MORE

  • 5 of 5

We can't tell you how very much we appreciate your time and effort in doing this. The reviews are what makes our business successful!!

Here are the kind words that you wrote in our book ... If you would like, just simply copy & paste them into the Review! :

Our stay at this Amazing home exceeded our expectations!

Everything from the decor, appliances,, to the amenities was PERFECT. We hope to come back in the future.

The house speaks for itself.

The most unexpected and appreciative part of our visit was Nicolle. She quickly resolved all issues prior to our arrival.

She made us feel Welcome, which being from Texas, made us feel at home.

Ask three Placitans what they like best about living in Placitas and you may get six different answers. One will say it is being so far from everything, another, being so close to everything — and both will be right.

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.
