Perfect Casita for Two
average rating of 4.9534883 based on 43 reviews

I could live in this casita full-time! It truly is a perfect little home.

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable and felt at home at Jill and Marty's casita. Had coffee in the morning and wine in the evening on the back patio. Excellent home base for exploring Albuquerque and the surrounding area. Jill and Marty are wonderful, friendly people and super hosts! We have stayed in many properties over the years and this is the best yet!

My daughter and I stayed in the casita during the first weekend of the ballooon fiesta. It was perfect!! The casita has everything we needed. Marty and Jill were wonderful hosts, always willing to answer questions and give us recommendations about where to eat and things to see. It’s not far off I25 so you can get anywhere in Albuquerque pretty quickly. Definitely recommend staying here.

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the casita adorable and ideally located for us, the owners, Jill and Marty, are the cat's pajamas. The casita is comfortable and adorable, fully furnished and decorated. There was water in the fridge and dispensers for soap, shampoo, and body wash in the shower. Lots of basics were provided, saving us the aggravation of having to remember to bring sugar. It was the end of the warm weather but my husband did manage to go swimming a couple of time and enjoyed it immensely. Best of all was the time we spent chatting with Jill and Marty. What a couple of sweethearts! They treat all their guests like they are friends, but of course give you as much privacy as you want.

Be aware that ABQ implies a need for security. We did lock the gate at night for safety's sake. But we liked living in a residential neighborhood at the end of a dead end street.

We hope to move to ABQ after this second visit, and we expect to visit with our new friends, Jill and Marty of the Perfect Casita for Two, once we get unpacked!

Move to Albuquerque

  • 5 of 5

Marty and Jill were very inviting. They greeted us often after day out. They offered advice on places to visit. They had the house set up with everything we could ask for. the Casita gave my mom and Auntie much joy to the New Mexican culture. The binders filled with information were helpful . We felt very special during our stay. I was relocating to the area and rented the place for my mom and Aunt but ended up staying. We felt like they were life long friends and not just strangers! We will miss you! Thanks for the wonderful stay.

Outstanding vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Casita. The place was charming and had lots of New Mexico Flavor with plenty of art on display. Our family truly enjoyed our stay and it was a perfect setting for kids with outstanding hospitality. Coming from out of town and not knowing the area, we received help in better understanding the things to do in the area. Our hosts never grew tired of helping us answer questions about Albuquerque and New Mexico. The place was very peaceful and mornings sitting out on the back porch were a wonderful part of the vacation. The kids loved having access to the swimming pool. Despite the place having a quiet, secluded feel, the central location was excellent for exploring places like Old Town. The kids loved visiting places such as Explora, the balloon museum and Tingley Beach. We plan on coming back!

Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful week we spent in the "Perfect" casita. Jill and Marty went out of their way to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. Jill even brought fresh flowers from her garden in a vase to decorate our table for dinner. We enjoyed ourselves and are thinking about our next visit in Eden.
