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.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO properties over the years and without a doubt this is one of the finest we've had the pleasure to use. The condition of the property, cleanliness, customer service, location and amenities are exactly as described and reflect what other reviewers have said. We spent so much time traveling around the New Mexico area we almost felt guilty for not spending more time in Carol's lovely home. We plan on visiting the area again and will most assuredly stay at Casa Carolina when we return..

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carolina was absolutely perfect for our sisters' getaway. Words that come to mind are welcoming and comfortable. It felt like home the moment we opened the door. Décor was beautiful. Kitchen had everything anybody could ever want or need. Beds were super comfortable! Loved the walled patio in the back - a wonderful place to relax in the evening, and have coffee in the morning. Carol even stopped by to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed. We all wished we could stay longer!

Perfect Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, spacious and had everything we needed. Your attention to detail made us feel right at home. We fell in love with the location being right off campus because we were in walking distance to lots of great restaurants and taprooms. It was also a short drive to Santa Fe which was very beautiful and had some great shopping. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Albuquerque area and we will be using again when we come back.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible. I don't know where to start! Everything was in the house that you would want/need if you were at your own home. It was incredibly clean, which is my #1 concern when traveling. Before our arrival, Carol sent an email with information about the house, the area, where to eat, etc. I also spoke with her before booking and she answered all my questions and guaranteed that I would love the house, which I did. We enjoyed walking a block to get take out pizza and bringing it back to enjoy on the patio. We had great weather and walked for frozen yogurt another night. The house was perfectly decorated and updated. I highly recommend this house and owner!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to leave a review to let the secret out, this house is great! The location could not be better, a quiet location yet only a block from restaurants and shopping. House was clean and fully stocked. We have already booked our next stay here later this year. Owner was super responsive and we couldn't have asked for more. You will enjoy your stay here no doubt!
