Jim Summers - Albuquerque purchased this house in 2001

We started renting vacation homes over 14 years ago in Bodega Bay, CA and have been hooked ever since. The amount of money we saved by cooking at the rental home and spending fun time with our family and friends was so much better than sitting in a hotel room waiting for the others to get ready and sitting....again... at the restuarant. I love cooking together, playing games and having drinks in the hot tub afterwards. Try it and I believe you will too!

Our kitchens are stocked full of everything you need to cook a fantastic meal! When we decided to start renting out our former residence we knew exactly what was needed for a great vacation home as we had ten+ years experience by renting others. HOT TUB & POOL IS A MUST! What better way to wind down a long day of touristing than to relax in a private clean hot tub and cool off in the pool. Outdoor patio is required to have a social gathering vs watching TV. Enjoy your friends and family by cooking & playing together vs waiting for people to get ready in a hotel room and then go sit down again at a restaurant.

I would like take this opportunity to say what a nice home this was for my friends from around the country that visited Albuquerque in June 2008. It had all the items and beds that gentleman of our age enjoyed. We would go out and play golf at the various golf courses in the surrounding area and afterward go back to this home and enjoy the pool as well as the jacuzzi and relax. There is a food establishment within walking distance of the home and within two or three miles there are numerous food establishments as well as a large grocery story. If you are into gambling which we were, there are several nice casinos nearby. In the event you did not want to be around anyone at this home, there were other sitting areas that you could get away to and enjoy the nice environment inside and out. I being the cook really enjoyed the kitchen and the nice BBQ pit and how easy it was to get around the kitchen and house. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone and in the event to decide to get together again in Albuquerque, as we do somewhere every year, we will return to this home.

Owner's Response: Scott, thanks for sending in your comments on the Pool House. It was great to meet all of the guys and you taught me something about friendship. You and your buddies have been getting together every year for over 25 years and I truly admire that. I have a few friends I go see every year but not as a group. You guys are an inspiration to me. I hope your friends decide to come back to Albuquerque again as I will look forward to seeing all of you. "I'll keep the light on for you."

"Thanks Jim, the Pool House was awesome. We know it's a money maker for you but you can tell you put alot of heart into it. You make it a great place with the fire pit, grills, and all the care for the yard & flowers and details on things people need for their stay. Nobody else does this. Wish we could stay longer and know we will look you up again on our next stay. PS - if you see some snails with numbers on them it was for the races we had out back."
(I promise I did not pay them to write that! Jim)
"Albuquerque May 24-28 A wonderful week in a great house with so nice friends! (drawings of four happy faces and names + hearts) (then paragraph written in another language... says from Norway) Thanks for letting us stay at the house. We had a great time enjoying the sun & the wind! The pool was wonderful too. Mostly talking with our cherished friends from Norway & our beloved family. May 31, 2008"

"Hugh Heff loved the arrangement. Many bunnies galore. 8/12/08 - 8/18/08 (with nice drawing of Playboy bunny)
Jim, thanks for everything. We had such a blast! We had an 80"s party on Thursday night. So everyone was dressed like 80's and 80's music was rocked throughout the night. It was like a flashback to my childhood. It was awesome. My family LOVED the house so much. They really felt at home here. There was plenty of room for all of the bodies in this house."

Today I was updating the ABQ book in the home. The book is a compilation of things to do, were to buy the best groceries, tourist traps good & bad, the best restuarants (my personal opinion of course), events and so on. Inside the book is another book labeled "tell us about your visit" where guests can leave comments, draw, color, etc. Since very few Guests actually leave responses on this website I decided to include some of the quotes from this book. When you arrrive you will want to read all of them as some are quite funny and some of it I can't write here. I am not correcting or changing anything so it is reproduced just as written. Here we go:
"I enjoyed the scenery, Mike"
"I really like your home! We enjoyed our stay. Michael"
"Hottub very relaxing The house comfortable Don"
"The BBQ was reat! Tony" These are written with drawings of the hottub, pool with little stick people and the brick BBQ.
"all the comforts of home...nice touch! Feb 2008"
We enjoyed our stay. Guitar Hero"
It felt like home Texas Hold'em" drawings of guitar and card table.
"Below 0 degrees in Iowa, over 60" of snow Great trip! Feb. 25, 2008 very nice house Very good refrigeration" with drawing of Bud Light beer can.
This is abbreviated as it is very long - "April 6th, 2008 Group of 7 from Rochester Minnesota, Why does time fly when you are having fun! One word of advice, if you save your aluminium cans, you would have made another $375 in beer alone! Nice accomodations, we left no beer, TAH-Dah!!"
"May 1, 2008 group of 12 from Chicago, IL. I am finding the New Mexican decor of the house giving me the real feel New Mexico has to offer. Tim here - this house made the day. The pool was nice, hot tub was great and the drinkin games were on.( a full page about a dog and stilleto along with a drawing of the dog...?) Today was a Murfect day for a swim. We did some surfing, played some alligator, and played King of the Raft's. A group of friends came over to party and of course things got wild.There was Rich Belly Floppin In The Pool, a game of thumper, a game of quarters (it goes on for a while). I must say this house made this trip, it beats staying in a hotel. (a point about not being served alcohol at the restuarant which is the law here by the way...take your ID!) We are very happy with this house and everything that was provided. If we ever come back here we would definitely call Jim and request this awesome house with the best accomadations.

We were thrilled to find this rental for our family to stay at the week of my daughter's wedding. My 2 sons and their families came in and with 5 children ranging in ages of 8 - 1, we had more than enough room and they had the freedom of enjoying the outdoors with the fenced in yard, toys, pool and hot tub. We also had guests staying with us who brought their 5th wheel RV, and your accommodations for them was great! It was "home away from home" for us and allowed us to enjoy our time together as a family with the luxury of being in a home rather than at a motel. You have made it very comfortable and economical for a large group.

Thank you,
Susan & Julie
Owner's Response: Susan & Julie,
thank you so much for leaving your Guest comment! That was a HUGE RV and I am glad we trimmed the branches before they got here. We never get responses about the economical issue so I am glad you mentioned that. Ten years ago our family was vacationing in N CA and our one night restuarant bill for 6 was $330. That did not include the 2 small hotel rooms where we were packed in tight. The next year we took the same trip with some friends and booked a vacation house. The house was way less than three motels rooms and we spent $350 on groceries & liquor for a week! We enjoyed a hot tub, space, full cooking kitchen and a private home. The trip was one of the best we have ever had and we were sold on vacation homes. I believe this is why we have so many happy guests as we know what we want when we stay in a vacation home and we try to provide that plus much more. I believe once a group of people stays in a good vacation home once they will never want a hotel again. Best wishes and hope to see your family again someday.

What a great place to have a Wedding. The atmosphere is wonderful. The house accommodated all of us very well (9). It is such a beautiful piece of property that it works out great for a wedding. We had about 80 people at the wedding and didn't feel crowded at all. You have everything that you could possibly need at the house and the hot tub and swimming pool are absolutely a plus. The fron yard is a beautiful setting for the wedding. The house is very comfortable and felaxing. If you do another wedding or anything else where we may have a lot of people I would surely call on you again for the use of your house.

What a fun experience.
Owner's Response: Nancy, thanks for the enthusiastic response. We are very happy to hear the wedding went great. When you get a chance to send us the photos we will post them on the website. We wish your daughter and new son-in-law a long and happy marriage!
Thanks again and we will look forward to seeing you and your family at your next big event,
Jim & Kathy

Jim - It was wonderful to have the use of such a fantastic house for our family reunion. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a clean, well maintained home with everything and more that we would need. It was so nice to have our own "private" pool and hot tub. I'm positive that having the use of your home added to the success of our reunion. We will definitely rent from you again the next time we have a family gathering. Thank you. Connie
Owner's Response: Connie, thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad your family enjoyed the house and your time with each other. The success of a family reunion is measured by how much the family enjoyed each others company and we were happy to be a part of that. The best compliment we can get is to hear you will be back to stay again and we look forward to seeing you then! Jim & Kathy

What an experience! Your home is beautiful and very well maintained. I could not believe all of the items that were available for our use. Having all of the items that we would have at home was an extra benefit that was not expected, but an extra bonus. We had 10 people stay there at one time and it was extremely comfortable. Awesome place!
Owner's Response: Steve, we always like to hear that the home was more than expected. We know what we want in a vacation rental and make sure to do our best for you. Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you next time your in Albuquerque! Jim & Kathy

Comment Text: The house was great. We had all the comforts of home. This house location was easy to find. It is just off the main roads leading into the downtown area. Everything you need is within a short distance. If we get back to Albuquerque we will defiantly rent this place again. Jim and Kathy were very easy to work with.
