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.

Carol had the house ready for us right on time. The instructions were perfect. Everything was exactly as described, plenty of room for the 5 adults and 2 little ones. The house is located in a great section of Albuquerque near lots of dining and pubs. We have lots of relatives here and it was easy to travel to other parts of towm. As far as the amenities go, the kitchen is well equipped and the bed linens are new, lots of towels in the bathrooms, TV and internet were flawless. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks Carol!!

Perfect location

Just like home!

This home away from home has the best vibe. Just can't describe how comfortable we felt. Well appointed kitchen and overall accommodations are A+. Great location and in walking distance to many restaurants.

Great stay at Casa Margarita

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Margarita. The house and the adjoining Casita we utilized were both clean, convenient and well equipped. Everything was in good working order, which lent itself to a more comfortable stay, as we were in town for a family reunion. We were able to relax outdoors with the enclosed patio and had a nice cookout there as well. There was a highchair and a port-a- crib for my grandson. Our hosts left a book of suggestions for various activities and restaurants in the area which was most helpful too. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity presented itself!

Beautiful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Carol's place! It is very centrally located, easy access to the airport, restaurants, shops, other tourist attractions.... you name it, it is so close to everything. The place itself is nicely decorated with an abundance of New Mexico charm. It was also very clean and neatly kept. We recommend the place to anyone wanting to visit Albuquerque.

Comfy and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. Even though located in the bustling Nob Hill district, the house (and street, for that matter) was surprisingly quiet and peaceful. When I sprawled on the living room couch that first evening, after a very grueling days drive, I actually forgot I was not at home on my own sofa! The back patio, which we enjoyed every evening, was secluded and relaxing. The full-sized kitchen, used daily for meal prep, was roomy and efficient--well-stocked with a nice assortment of pots and pans. The light and bright house was spotless and beautifully remodeled, considering it is around 90 years old! We would definitely recommend this property, and also would stay again without hesitation.

I will address the stair issue that was brought up by the previous commenter: Could it use a gate or some other safety device to prevent you from teetering off the landing? Yes, but it didn't affect our enjoyment of the property! We also stayed in the downstairs master bedroom, and my 5'10" husband had no problem adjusting to the low clearance.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our home and neighborhood. We think a gate or something similar above the stairs is a great idea and could also serve as a baby gate. We are in the process of contacting contractors for quotes. We look forward to your return!
