Not Entirely as Expected

  • 2 of 5

When I booked the property the description did not reveal that this is a double wide in a mobile home community. By personal preference I would not have booked had I known this. I wanted a traditional subdivision for walking and this was outside my comfort zone. The photos show a patio area and the description talks about an area friendly for dogs. I was surprised to find that the patio is actually the front yard adjacent to a busy street and is not the same area enclosed to keep in pets or children. The dog run is on the side, rocks only, and not visible from the patio. The woven blinds in the living area and the master bath area do not provide privacy at night. With lights on inside, someone outside can see right in. The 40+ year old home itself had a stale, old odor that no amount of room spray would cover for long. There were some cobwebs on the ceiling light fixtures and dust in the multiple artificial plants in the interior. The views of the trailer park are depressing. There are old tires, trash cans, clothes lines, rocks, other trailers and multiple types of patched together fencing. I'm still puzzled as to why the high "holiday" rate was warranted on this property. Another thing not revealed in the listing is that there is a service fee tacked on at the time billing is presented. In my case it was around $82 adding to the feeling of being ripped off on this deal. Some attention is needed to ambiance since it was a turnoff to see a can of Bed Bug and Flea spray and a grease receptacle on a storage shelf outside the laundry room. The refrigerator door was full of opened jars and condiments which most people would not want to use. There were some expired canned goods in the pantry. On the plus side, there are 2 nice TVs with DirectTV, good internet, a good master mattress and ample towels provided. This property may be fine for people seeking a lower budget place for their own reasons but I feel it was oversold on the listing and not a property I would want to stay in again.

Owner's Response: Deb, thank you for your honest "opinion" of your stay. I'm sorry this home wasn't what you expected. It is not the Taj Ma Hal or the price would be much higher. However, we have multiple 5 star reviews from recent past guests who have enjoyed their stay very much.

Great location for Balloon Fiesta

  • 3 of 5

The property was very convenient to the Balloon Fiesta park, a full service grocery store and the Costco. It was spacious and worked very well for two couples traveling together. The kitchen was very well equipped and easy to cook in. There were two large flat screen TVs and Direct TV. However, we were very surprised to discover that the property was a double-wide trailer, albeit at the beginning of the neighborhood. The living room was not well lit, but opening the blinds revealed the views of the neighbors' trailers and gravel yards which were depressing.

Wonderful place!! Extremely comfortable and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Jenny was extremely accommodating and helped out with all the questions we had. There is a brand new King size temperpedic bed in the master bedroom, fast internet and two big screen TVs with DirecTV (one in the master). I highly recommend this place for your VRBO needs!

Comfortable, clean, and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This place worked out great for us! The living room was large and comfortable with lots of seating and supersized TV. Kitchen was fully equipped. Beds were very comfortable. Had a large dining room table, great for dinner and playing games. Outdoor seating area was enjoyable as well. Place was tastefully decorated and clean. Owners were very easy to work with and available when we needed them. Place worked very well for handicapped guests and our small dogs. I would definitely stay here again!

This home is at the heart of Rio Rancho. Only 3 blocks to restaurants, groceries and shopping. Walking trails, Senior Center, Convent, and many more things are just blocks away. Cottonwood Mall is just down the hill and Coralles, is a stone's throw away.
