Guestbook comments from the owner

We’ve seen a lot of remodels and this is the most remarkable. The design, paint colors, furnishings, and decorating is amazing. The wonderful artwork compliments everything you’ve done.

It has been a pleasure staying here. This area is fun. We found some of the galleries in old Town and also in some of the interesting shops on Central.

One Week is not enough. I’m sure we’ll visit again when we can spend more time.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carolina is the perfect respite steps away from the action of Nob Hill. Walk to shopping and hot spots and return to a beautiful private patio area and relax. Casa Carolina was clean, had great light; great flow and the breakfast nook is like sitting in a old friend's kitchen. An added bonus is the off street parking in an "it" neighborhood.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad our home was perfect for you. I look forward to your return and hope the Rail Train will be complete by then. You will be able to walk a short block, hop on, and ride to many other wonderful places such as Old Town, Downtown, the Bio Park, Aquarium and Zoo plus more.

Fantastic location, beautiful home in Nob Hill

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Nob Hill home was the perfect spot to spend time

enjoying Albuquerque! Close to the airport, walking distance to many shops, restaurants and the food co-op. On a very quiet street, yet

close to the action. The home had everything we needed and was

beautiful. The lower level bedroom was like a beautiful

private suite! Loved it and will return!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed our home. Because the lower-level bedroom is where we stay when we are at Casa Carolina, we make it as wonderful as possible. That is why we have a large-screen TV and DirecTV with a DVR recorder both there (and in the living room) as well as great decor and comfy quilts. We look forward to your return!

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

Nice house, great location, very walkable to Central Ave although it is under construction. Low ceiling going to the master bedroom (which is in the basement). I am 5'10" and I had to duck walking down the stairs. Bigger bathroom upstairs - shower also not great for tall people. Water pressure in the house is very poor even with only 1 thing on at a time. If two things require water there is barely a stream. We had 8 people - 4 adults and 4 children (10, 9 , 7 and 6 yrs old) but there were only beds for 7 people since the inflatable air mattress provided was a single.

Owner's Response: Our #1 goal is to ensure that every guest has a wonderful experience in our home. I am sorry that you had trouble with the water pressure and the sleeping arrangements. If you stay with us again, and for all future guests, we provide contact numbers for 4 property managers. Please feel free to call any of us with issues or needs and we will deal with them right away. My team is very responsive and really cares about your stay. We would have been happy to contact a plumber right away (the water pressure was dealt immediatly upon seeing this review and is fixed). We have several airbeds (2 twins, 1 full, and 1 queen) and we would have been happy to drop another off. Casa Carolina is a nearly 100-year-old, gorgeous New Mexican Casa. My husband is 5” 11” and we have spent many wonderful years enjoying Casa Carolina and always stay in the downstairs bedroom. Though the majority of the stairs are a completely open stairwell, we have a Caution Low Clearance sign for those last couple of steps to the master where the clearance is lower than typical. Every guest is important to us and it is rare that guests are not completely satisfied with our home. If you would like to stay at Casa Carolina during a future visit to ABQ, we would be happy to give you a discount. Finally, the construction on Central is the building of a Rapid Transit System that will allow our renters to walk a block and hop on and ride to the fairgounds, Old Town, The BioPark and Aquarium, downtown and more. We are very excited about this for our future guests.

I cannot say enough about this property and Carol the owner. Beautiful home in a wonderful location (walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the university). Relaxing courtyard for grilling, having an evening beverage or your morning coffee. Carol was a pleasure to work with. I will absolutely stay here again (and again)!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at your warm and inviting Casa Caroline. The location was perfect for UNM and the Nob Hill area. Walked to a different restaurant every night. The back patio was great in the morning for coffee. It was a joy to stay here and I will we be staying here again when our daughter goes to school. It was just a pleasure to work with the owners and if I had an issue they were right there to help me. I would highly recommend staying here!!
