HISTORIC OLD TOWN SUITE & PRIVATE PATIO-$79 TO $90

Albuquerque Studio Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2-4 People, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, private courtyard, private entrance

You'll rarely encounter anyone else on the property as you stay in this quiet circa mid 1800s suite (not a studio) behind thick terrone adobe walls. As an owner/partner in three other successful vacation rentals, this is my newest foray into the market. This suite with 300 square-foot private courtyard and private entrance is just across the street from Tiguex Park, and surrounded by The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, The New Mexico Museum of Natural History, and Explora Children's Museum. It's mere steps from the Old Town Plaza, where Albuquerque was founded in 1706. It boasts a scenic plaza with gazebo surrounded by adobe buildings and San Felipe de Neri church (you can hear the bells ringing for the morning call to worship). The property where you'll stay was started in the mid-1800s and constructed of thick 'terrone' adobe, making the walls about two-feet thick, making for a quiet retreat. High ceilings are of wooden beams from the historic sawmill (now defunct).

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Hello! Thank you for considering this lovely suite with private entrance and private courtyard. I'm a partner in three other successful vacation rentals here in Old Town. This one is my own personal rental. I've lived in New Mexico most of my life and have a background in hospitality, so I'm very well-versed about Albuquerque and the state. I dabble in many things.. I'm a Realtor, and I do home staging. With my boyfriend, I collaborate on art pieces...I do fused glass, welding, and copper enameling and he's a furniture-maker/woodworker. I'm a retired hot air balloon pilot, so I can make recommendations about balloon chasing, balloon rides and about the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

I fell in love with this house when I came to review it as a Realtor several years ago. It needed some work (actually, lots of work), but I saw the potential inside the thick terrone adobe walls, its beamed ceilings and location in the heart of Old Town across from the park and the museums. I love the fact that three museums are mere steps away as are a myriad of restaurants. I like not having to get into my car and drive to get to somewhere special.

The best bennies about staying at this property are the ambience...right across from awesome museums and a beautiful park....and the softness of the adobe walls and their sound-muffling character. It's very private with its own entrance and large courtyard so that travelers don't have to feel like they're going to encounter anyone else on the property. I also like that it feels like I'm on vacation and away from it all when I'm inside the suite. I can watch television, listen to music, lay back and read a book. I can simply go across the street to the park and have a picnic lunch or walk a few more steps and see an Imax movie at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History or go see the latest art exhibit at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History in just a 2-minute walk. Families with kids will love that thay can take a quick stroll to the other side of the park to Explora Childrens Museum. Just four minutes on foot and I can be at the plaza in Old Town where Albuquerque was founded in 1706. If I want a fine restaurant I can take a 7-minute walk to Season's off Mountain Road or to Crepe Michele in Old Town. I like that I don't have to leave my neighborhood to have so many fun things to do at my fingertips.

Adorable and Cozy Spot

We contacted Jana about staying here during part of our move from Ohio to California. She knew we would be transporting our furry friend and was very accommodating. Unfortunately, we got stuck in Arkansas for a few days due to a bad ice storm and a car accident. Jana was more than understanding and did everything she could to be of service. When we finally arrived in Albuquerque we were exhausted. The pictures don't do the place justice. The studio is gorgeous, the bed was very comfortable, very clean and cozy. We were able to park our u-Haul on the street with no problem. Since we came in the winter, we weren't able to enjoy the lovely patio, but are sure it's fantastic in the warmer months. We have already recommended this VRBO to a few others and will definitely stay there again if we find ourselves in Albuquerque!

Pretty much exactly as I expected

I have no complaints about this place at all. It was pretty much exactly like I expected.

It was completely turn-key. The owner emailed me the combination to the gate and front door.

The place is just like in the photos. It was clean, well-maintained. It is in a great location. It has nice art.

The place is small (as I had expected) - there is only one room. So you and your room-mate better be pretty good friends.

The location is excellent. You can walk to restaurants, and museums.

I thought it was a good deal for the price.

So - there. I felt very lucky finding this place. If you want two beds in a well maintained apartment - right in the center of ABQ - you can't go wrong.

Great location, esp. for kids

Nice comfy vacation spot. My wife and I stayed here with our two boys (5 & 7) and it's cozy but perfect if you're not planning on spending much time at "home." Small snafus with the Direct TV and wi-fi but the owners fixed them right away. Really close to Old Town, the Explora kids' learning museum, and the Natural History museum. Great directions/instructions and overall communication with owners. Made for a great weekend getaway!

My favorite thing about this suite is the location...so close to the plaza and to many of the things we came to Albuquerque for. It was just right for the two of us over the weekend.

My husband, baby, and dog and I had a very comfortable stay at this casita. We stayed 2 nights and were glad for the location: park across the street, proximity to museums, proximity to good restaurants. Jana was so accommodating and we were glad to get to know her. The casita was clean and well appointed. The courtyard was a nice place for us to relax at the end of the day sightseeing. Jana directed us to a great restaurant: Slate Street Cafe. The price point was great for this rental, and if we ever return to ABQ we will seek this spot out. Thanks!

Owner's Response: It was great having you here and meeting your sweet baby, Gibson! Slate Street Café is one of my favorites as well. Thanks!

Location, location, location! This boutique-style vacation suite decorated with original art by fine New Mexico artists is in the much-desired Old Town. When you stand in your private courtyard or look outside your door you'll see Tiguex Park with its acres of grass, shade trees, exercise equipment and a playground surrounded by the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, The New Mexico Museum of Natural History, and Explora Children's Museum. The property is mere steps from Old Town plaza where Albuquerque was founded in 1706. Old Town is the number one visitor attraction in the city with its shaded plaza surrounded by adobe buildings and San Felipe de Neri church. It features restaurants, galleries and shopping along with entertainment and events year-round. Downtown is only a couple of miles away with nightlife, galleries, a Century 14 Downtown movie theater, good dining and shopping along the old Route 66. Also along Route 66 and only minutes from Old Town is Nob Hill where you can find a myriad of restaurants, galleries, shopping and night clubs to your taste. This property is less than a mile from Interstate 40, which gives you quick access to all areas of the city such as Uptown, the west-side Petroglyph National Monument, the Sandia Peak Tramway (the world's longest jig-back tram), Sandia Peak Ski Area, and the east mountain area for hiking, site-seeing, and picknicking. Albuquerque boasts many city-owned golf courses with mild temperatures generally suited for year-round play. With the close proximity of I-40 it's easy to get to events such as the renowned Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. And if you're in town for the annual Christmas Eve luminaria display, you won't need to drive from this property since it's the heart of the event.

Notes:
NOTE: Homeaway.com has a limited number of categories for properties and the category that best fits this is 'studio'. It is, in fact, a private suite. There are kitchen amenities provided such as a mini refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. It has the same amenities as a fine hotel room, so there is no kitchen. With the number of fine restaurants only steps away, cooking is not necessary!
