Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This home was fully set up and clean! Definite simple New Mexico feel! James made the process so easy over the phone and emailed instructions. Not too remote not too city the perfect combo! I would highly recommend this home to the traveler who wants that at home feel. Kitchen has all up to date appliances ceiling fans throughout the and on back patio the grill and patio furniture are a plus for those that want to take in the beautiful views of mountains and local wildlife that surround this home. Star gazing was amazing in the evenings when there was no cloud cover. This was our first time using VRBO and we were very happy with our choice and ease of rental process directly with homeowner. Thank you James for opening your beautiful home to our family.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! From location to amenities, it was fantastic. The views from the front porch in the morning were phenomenal. There was plenty of space for our family of four. My kids did not want to leave and have asked several times when we can come back! Since we have family in the area, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on our next visit.

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this house!! This is our 3rd time renting and it has everything we need. The kitchen, open layout and fenced-in backyard are great. And we enjoy the southwest look and decor of the house along with the night views of the city. Look no further if you want a great place to stay in ABQ/Rio Rancho...very highly recommended!

Excellent for long term stays

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here a month and commuted to Albuquerque every day. Nice drive on I25 and less traffic than the Rio rancho commute. Great supply of cooking utensils and we loved the fireplace.

The area offers diverse landscapes depending on which direction you look. Lush mountains border the east of the Rio Grande Valley. Walks and horseback rides along the Rio Granderiver offer countrylike setting. Sightseeing in the painted dessert views near the Indian Pueblos, and cliff dwelling from centuries ago in national parks are some of the few outdoor activities. Museums and art galleries are particular to this area, with a lot of southwestern art. You can ski in the morning and be just a short drive away from 65-70 degree weather. Fishing, hiking, biking and picnicking are available in parks all over the area. Albuquerque and Santa Fe offer a diversity of cultural activities.
