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!

Nicolle and Robert purchased this House in 2006
Why Nicolle and Robert chose La Luz
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 truly rich history!! The petroglyphs, vistas, sunsets, food, art, historic attractions and lifestyle captured our hearts. The Albuquerque experience is wrapped up in four distinct & truly wonderful seasons ... all of which are stunning. 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. Albuquerque, the largest city in New Mexico, is packed with activities, cultural attractions and distinctive sightseeing opportunities & plenty of people watching too ;). There was so much to do ... we stayed! It is Our Primary Goal to make sure you Feel at Home & Have an Amazing Vacation Experience ... not just a trip!!

Beautiful way to spend a week in Albuquerque
We can hardly believe how perfect this place was for us.
We have stayed in quite a few HomeAway properties but this one was easily among the nicest and best equipped. We felt like we were staying in the home of a friend or relative who wanted to make sure we felt welcome and comfortable beyond our dreams. The kitchen, bathrooms, and every spot in the house were so well equipped that we hardly had to bring or buy many essentials.
Plus, the view of Albuquerque and the mountains beyond it were fantastic. And we got to see hot-air balloons passing by in the morning. Great views to start and end each day.
Though there are just the two of us, we appreciate the convenience of multiple bathrooms and the option of another bedroom (when snoring intrudes). Each space was beautifully decorated and thoughtfully supplied.
We were just minutes from most of the things we wanted to see on this trip: Old Town, petroglyphs, shopping, botanic garden, and the Acoma pueblo. Be sure to try M'Tucci's pizza in addition to all the great New Mexican restaurants.
If you want to see Albuquerque, this is the place to make your headquarters. You'll love the town and you'll love the place you are staying. Your hosts will be incredibly eager to make you welcome.
You two were such Amazing Guests!! We are just blown away by your wonderful review & we sure hope that you get to return someday!!
Nicolle & Robert
The property exceeded my expectations. It was really like being at home, comfy and cozy with excellent views of the city. The owners really put extra effort into making you feel at home. Loved it and would love to return someday.
Can’t imagine a better place to stay in Albuquerque
I think my sister (who went to college in Albuquerque and has since moved away) said it best when she walked through the door and exclaimed “my dream New Mexico house!”. This place has it all - porch with amazing views, cozy common spaces, a dining room where our extended family gathered for a memorable dinner one night - the kitchen was as well-equipped as mine at home so very easy to pull off a meal. The place was beautifully decorated with amazing attention to detail. Beds were super comfy. I am convinced there is no better place to stay in Albuquerque for an authentic New Mexico experience. Highly, higjly recommended.
In a word, ENCHANTING!
This is a wonderful property. Great views of the mountains and of the city (from afar). This home has everything you need, beautifully decorated, lots of room, plenty of places to sit and visit with family/friends and FABULOUS VIEWS! La Vista is located close to many fabulous restaurants, grocery stores and Petroglyph National Park. Thank you for providing such a lovely home for our vacation.
Kevin and Carla
AMAZING home and INCREDIBLE hosts.
I rented this incredible house for 5 days/4 nights and can't wait to be back in New Mexico to stay again with Nicole and Robert. From the minute I walked into the house I knew this was a great choice. Every detail to make me feel welcomed was there. This house is decorated beautifully, it's comfortable, safe and has wonderful amenities. The bedrooms are VERY comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and there are stores located super close for ALL your needs.
Make sure to light a fire in the backyard and wake up early in the morning to see the hot air balloons rising in the morning sky with your cup of JOE.
Wonderful home equipped with everything you might need!
This was the perfect house for us to stay in during spring break with our dog. Nicolle was wonderful from the time we booked our reservation to when we left. She provided us with tons of local food recommendations (including dog friendly locations) and helped us pick a company to use for a hot air balloon ride. The kitchen is so well stocked with any kitchen gadget/pan needed. It was an added bonus that we were able to use the fire place while we were there. The yard was fenced in and was perfect for our dog. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this property whether you need a dog friendly home or not!
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!
