Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was my and my family's first experience with HomeAway and it will definitely not be our last. The home was exactly as advertised. The convenience to Old Town is a real plus. You can walk over and shop or have a meal or just sit outside and have coffee. The museums are literally across the street. We also made good use of the grill on the patio.

A GREAT place to stay and REALLY close to Old Town

  • 5 of 5

This is a VERY nice 2 bedroom casita. All appliances are top notch. Three 2nd story balconies, and lots of fenced, secluded, and private yard room are all GREAT pluses. The parking is good too. That is just a short pull-in driveway, probably long enough for most any car. Walk out the front door, and nearly 1 block away is the Backstreet Grill, rated #18 of 1,371 Restaurants in Albuquerque with the Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor. We LOVED the street tacos and the tamales too. Of course there is LOADS to do in and around Old Town. Then there is Duran Central Pharmacy, at 1815 Central Avenue NW, just a few blocks away from the casita. Duran's is great for all sorts of souvenirs and they have a GREAT grill too :-) We plan to stay in this casita again.

Beautiful, comfortable & convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home was so close to old town and easy to get to other areas. There was everything we needed was in the kitchen. Extra care was given in decorating and the multiple patios great.

Venus handled a minor issue with a smoke detector battery personally & promptly.

Planning a return trip.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful house a short walk from Old Town. It was very clean and well decorated. The kitchen was stocked with everything that you could need. The master bedroom was quite comfortable and the en suite was a nice touch. The second bedroom only had a daybed that was not as comfortable. I recommend upgrading this room to have another full bed. It was an easy, short walk to the shops and restaurants in Old Town. Be warned that all of the restaurants close by 9pm.

The well appointed, clean and efficient living space of Southwestern Casita includes absolutely everything needed to make for a comfortable and convenient stay. The private courtyard provides added security and a great place to relax.

It is steps away from multiple small shops, fine dining, art studios, etc. Within 3 blocks, there are three museums (Albuquerque Museum, Explora, and Natural History Museum), 2 parks, a church built in 1706, and possibly one of the finest photo galleries in the Southwest, (APG). Don't forget to stop at the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting room. Yes, it is real, and worth the stop. Public Park, Post office, Hair Salons and great Restaurants (High Noon, Seasons, etc.) Minutes from downtown. Home of Int'l Balloon Fiesta, Casinos close by, Ruins, Jemez Mountains, Sandia Mountains, Hiking, Biking, 45 minutes from Santa Fe. Close to Rio Grande Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

Fun day trips include taking the tram to the top of Sandia Peak and hiking to Kiwanis cabin; taking the Turquoise Trail (Hwy 14) to Madrid, and Santa Fe; taking the Jamez Mountain Trail (Hwy 4) to Bandalier National Monument and the hot springs at Jemez Springs.
