I bought the property two years ago because I have always loved the area. I grew up in a small town south of Albuquerque and have always loved the Bosque areas up and down the Rio Grande. This particular property appealed to me because of the trees and grass field at the front. I'm an artist/architect and my studio is nearby if you should need anything.

We (my wife and I, our baby, and my wife's parents) spent Christmas week at the house in Corrales and absolutely loved it. The house is beautiful and well situated for hosting a family gathering. The common areas (kitchen, living room, and dining room) are in the middle, and the two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the home for maximum privacy and quiet. The kitchen is large and beautiful, the other details of the home are tasteful and quality. The fireplaces are a really nice touch -- we lit fires every day. The bathrooms are gorgeous (hopefully the owner will post photos). The only downsides to the house are (1) the beds aren't very comfortable; and (2) the kitchen still needs more stocking/equipping. The owner seems nice and conscientious, so I'm sure these will be addressed in due course.
Corrales as a location is excellent to explore both ABQ and areas to the north. Sandia Park Tramway is about 15-20 minutes away, as is Petroglyph National Monument. The airport and Old Town are about 25 minutes away. We took the train to Santa Fe, from the Sandia Pueblo rail station, which is just 10 minutes away. It was about a 1 hour drive to Jemez Springs. Corrales itself is a quiet place to stay and enjoy the views of the Sandia mountains. We had breakfast nearly every morning at Hannah & Nate's across the street. The brewery bistro had great burgers. There also are a number of local shops. If you need more serious shopping, there is a mall and major shopping area (including a Target and an Albertsons) just a couple of miles up the road.
I would heartily recommend this home to anybody who wants a quiet, comfortable place to explore the area. My five star rating is more of a 4.5 stars, due to the few issues described above. Once those are addressed, it will truly be a full 5 star place. We plan to return.
Located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, this charming home is in the heart of the village of Corrales. Nearby, within walking distance, you will find great places to shop and eat and all of New Mexico's scenic destinations are easily accessed from this location. You will have a short drive to museums, scenic old town, Sandia Mountain Tramway, historic cultural sites such as Quarai, Abo, Gran Quiverra. This home is great as a home base during your stay or an overnight transfer for the airport.
