Discriminating canines are invited to accompany their humans to La Vista for a special doggie rate of $25 per night ( max $100 per Visit). We will do our best to ensure that you and your human have plenty to wag about!
As a good boy/girl, please make sure:
Your humans do not abandon you inside La Vista while they go off and have fun. We can recommend doggie-camp options or companion visits to prevent this all-too-common tragedy.
Your human has been trained to take you to a proper outdoor location to complete your regular business in the dignified manner to which you are accustomed. And, that your human does the cleanup job for which they were so well designed.
Your human does not cause you to howl, bark, whimper, whine, and potentially face an embarrassing charge.
Your human remains leashed to you when anywhere outside the gate of La Vista since you’re not allowed off leash and would never have gone unless coerced.
Your human pays for any damage s/he causes you to inflict, as usually happens at home.
La Vista welcomes you for an enjoyable bit of panting and wagging, and invites you to sniff for a special treat upon check-in. La Arf at La Vista!
We work hard ... But have no fear we play hard too!
Whenever time allows, we can be found cooking up a fabulous concoction in the kitchen (red wine in hand) & we often share with our guests too;) or we may be out & about walking the rio grande with our 4 (yes! Four), four legged family: Rio, Bella, Buck and Hank ... On many occasions, we visit the plethora of dog friendly restaurant patio's and can often be found on our bikes headed to a new SW Adventure in The Land Of Enchantment.
We absolutely love, love, love living in the south west & hope to share all of it's wonder & beauty with you!

There are a variety of things to do in Albuquerque. Whether we were visiting one of the 14 beautiful golf courses & spas, taking a hot-air balloon flight over the scenic Rio Grande Valley, hiking among dormant volcanoes, horseback riding along the river, strolling through Old Town & Nob Hill to visit the many eclectic shops, being drawn into the amazing Art Galleries or visiting one of the local wineries to taste the grape! We found that Albuquerque offers a real breath of fresh air with a fantastic climate & warm wonderful people.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2014
A couple of friends and I stayed here for a long weekend. It was amazing. As soon as we pulled up we were in awe. The neighborhood is cute. The house looks nice from the outside, but once you go inside, you see the real treasure. It is beautifully furnished and decorated. I kept reading excellent reviews, but I still wasn't prepared for how fabulous it was. They truly did think of everything. We drew straws for the master bedroom, which is definitely grand. I did not get the master, but I wasn't event hat upset, because all 3 bedrooms were great. Downstairs is the 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom, the laundry room, and a little sitting area. Upstairs is the master bedroom, a living room, the kitchen, 1 1/2 bathroom, a dining area, and an amazing balcony with a beautiful view. We were only there for a few days, but I really want to go back for a week so I can cook in that wonderful kitchen. Also, in the back yard is a fire pit, which, luckily it got chilly enough on our last night that we were able to take advantage of it. it was so nice and cozy. I just can't say enough about this place. I travel a lot, and this is the best place I have ever stayed. if I go back to ABQ, I will definitely be planning to stay here again!
We spent 10 days at LaVista visiting our daughter in ABQ in the beginning of September 2016. The home included everything imaginable that you could need for a comfortable stay. The views of the city were fantastic day and night!
Not a detail was left out. You could actually come to this location with only the clothes you needed. Everything you might need for cooking inside or out, bathing, washing or just relaxing inside or out was available. All sorts of brochures and books were available with information about the area and sights you might want to see.
Everything was clean and in beautiful condition. The décor and details of the home were very warm and inviting.The bathrooms were wonderful with any item you needed from extra toothbrushes to shampoo and body wash etc. etc. etc.... The bedrooms were beautiful with lovely bedding and very comfortable beds! There was plenty of closet space and each area of the home was very roomy.
The neighborhood was very quiet. I don't think we ever heard a noise from any direction. The backyard area was furnished very nicely and felt very private. The trees and lighting at night were beautiful.
Our stay was delightful! Everything was in working order and we had no problems. We had a couple of guests over one evening for dinner and Nicolle was very prompt in letting me know this would work out fine. Our guests were very impressed with the accommodations as well.
We would recommend this Vacation Home to anyone visiting the area.
The house is always clean and fully supplies with all your needs, it is decorated very nice. we have been three times and plan on coming back
An awesome house! We three couples just loved everything about this house. The large back patio had everything you would want & more!
We will definitely return here in the future. Decor is beautiful and Nicole & Robert have thought of everything possible to fit the needs of all. Service was great, property excellent maintained, close to everything you need; attractions, food, etc. Views are magnificent!
The perfect home away from home. Love, love, love it!
Stayed Sept. 30-Oct. 4th, 2016
We could not have imagined a nicer home away or more charming hosts. The house is very comfortable, the views amazing, and the hospitality of Robert and Nicolle first rate. The place is conveniently located, clean, and well appointed. Our sincere thanks to the owners!
This has to be the most beautiful home available to rent in ABQ and the the best owners to work with! This huge home has a spectacular view of the Sandias and is convenient to most everything. The neighbors are friendly (both the two and four legged ones) and the area seems very safe and clean and quiet. It is very nicely decorated and has all the “sundries” you could possibly need from dog toys to paper towel to lotion and rubber ducks. It was spotless and we really appreciated all the local brochures and travel guides. Beds are super comfortable and there are plenty of pillows to choose from. The layout is great for families and friends traveling together so everyone has their own space (LR, DR, KIT, Master and ½ bath up / 2 bedrooms, full bath and den down). Every morning but one we were treated to hot air ballons floating right past the house – 12 on one day alone! Hummingbirds show up daily; would be great to have a feeder or a trumpet vine. It is a quick jaunt to Olde Town (a must visit) and less than an hour to Santa Fe. Nicolle and Robert are the best hosts; on the ball with eveything, providing suggestions if you need them and getting things taken care of at the speed of sound! We can’t think of a single thing to complain about (well, except that the house isn’t for sale J ). We thoroughly enjoyed or visit and can’t wait to come back again!
An "over the top" welcome to a beautiful home! Champagne chilling and snacks when we arrived so we could actually stop, relax, and begin our vacation with a toast. Nicolle and Robert surely have traveled a lot, and from their experiences, they stocked the house with every imaginable amenity one could ever want. Their home truly felt like "our home" for the week, and we nestled right in. I personally soaked in the views of the Sandia Mountains and city; waking early each morning to enjoy coffee on the balcony while viewing the sun rising along with spectacular hot air balloons...unwinding each evening with a glass of wine mesmerized by the twinkling city lights. A true highlight of the vacation!
The neighborhood is quiet, seemingly safe, and many sites are within minutes with easy access to highways and major thoroughfares.
Beds are layered for comfort and whole house A/C is definitely a plus as we faced 95-100 degree days. The kitchen cabinets are filled with beautiful glassware and dishes and everyday necessities for food prep needs.
I could easily go on and on, but you can sense that this house, and the warm welcoming and attention to detail that Nicolle and Robert extend, is unexpected and exceptional!
You will not be disappointed! Jan
Historic Albuquerque, New Mexico is a combination of the very old and the highly contemporary, the frontier town and the cosmopolitan city. It is a city with a rich history famous for its multiculturalism reflected in its public art, museums and architecture. The Albuquerque experience is not man-made or contrived. Our petroglyphs, vistas, sunsets, food, historic attractions and lifestyle exist with and without tourism. The Albuquerque experience is wrapped up in four wonderful seasons.
There are a variety of things to do in Albuquerque. Whether you're visiting one of our 14 beautiful golf courses, taking a hot-air balloon flight over the scenic Rio Grande Valley, mountain biking in the Sandia Mountains, hiking among dormant volcanoes, horseback riding along the river or strolling through Old Town or visiting a local winery, you'll find Albuquerque offers a real breath of fresh air. Don't miss the stunning views of the city from Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, as it slowly climbs the 10,378-foot peak of the mountains that form Albuquerque's eastern border.
Prefer high heels to hiking boots? There are lots of indoor Albuquerque tourism opportunities as well. Albuquerque, the largest city in New Mexico, is packed with activities, cultural attractions and distinctive sightseeing opportunities. Start your Albuquerque experience with a visit to the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center or one of our 19 museums and immerse yourself in art, culture, cuisine and cultural performances. There is so much to do, you may need to add an extra day to your visit!
