About Douglas

Hello, my name is Doug. I really enjoy being the host. Silver Hill is a very unique property in that it has all the grandeur of a classy 1908 bungalow, high ceilings, wood floors, adorable yard, plus the very high end amenities. The best part is when the guests enter for the first time and go 'WOW!'. Everybody raves about their stay here.

Douglas purchased this house in 2011

Why Douglas chose Silver Hill

It is beautiful inside and out and it is close to everything.

What makes this house unique

The kitchen is a joy to cook and entertain from. The dining room opens up to a darling sun room that opens onto the back courtyard with grass and a large shade tree for great outdoor entertaining.

Feels like home.

(This review is written by a member of my family for which I had arranged this rental.)

We recently stayed at this home for 5 nights. It was a great place to stay, we felt like we were in our own home.

The house is large, especially considering we there were 7 of us staying in it. We never felt cramped and enjoyed a couple of meals with additional family joining us. The layout of the house is very open, but with the opportunity to have privacy in the 3 bedrooms if desired. It was very conducive to family interaction, but still allowed for individual time when that was necessary. The sleeping arrangements were adequate, even for our large family. We never felt like we were shoehorned into a tiny place.

One of the things that made the house feel so much like home was all of the amenities provided. Our favorite was the large living room and the back yard. Family game time in the living room with plenty of seating and a private yard perfect for a toddler to play and family to enjoy the out of doors together. It is shaded by large trees on all sides, providing just the right combination of sunshine and ability to escape the heat. A barbecue grill was available for our use and patio dining set. If you feel more inclined to cook and eat inside, you are supplied with equally accommodating resources. There is a surprisingly large stock of kitchen items and gadgets.

The location is perfect for just about any reason you might be in Albuquerque. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood that is well kept and inviting. The neighbors are friendly, and there didn’t appear to be a problem with crime. I don’t think you could pick a better spot in the city for someone who wants to see and do everything Albuquerque has available.

The experience was made even better due to the personality of the owner. Doug was a fantastic host. He was very pleasant and easy to work with, and quick to attend to any concerns that we had. He also stayed out of our way and gave us privacy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for noticing the work and thought we put into making our vacation rental a complete home for the traveler visiting The Land of Enchantment! Your review of the outdoor amenities showed me a side of the home that I wouldn't have thought of. Your review hit so many positive points about Silver Hill Bungalow that I will make it a Feature Review. It's fun to meet so many interesting people. Thank you for your review and stay. Doug (owner)

Very clean, nice place

  • 5 of 5

The house is very cute, very clean and a perfect place for a short stay. Everything you need (including a corkscrew) is available. The only issue was with the VRBO app itself. It made communication with the property manager less than efficient. The house itself was very comfortable and clean.

Owner's Response: Actually, the guest kept starting new communication threads. So I kept getting messages from someone who showed that they hadn't paid anything and I couldn't figure out who this person was. Guests I need to go to the reservation communicate directly from there. Then it is seamless.

This was a great location for us! The house is amazing. Douglas was very accommodating when we had to reschedule our trip. The house is very roomy and clean. New appliances in kitchen and neat high ceilings throughout house that don’t show in photos of property. Lots of fun nooks when you need a moment to yourself. Neighborhood was quiet. We didn’t have time to utilize outside space but looks really nice. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth time we have stayed at Doug's house on Silver in Albuquerque. My wife and I love the house: its design and layout, the amenities and features, the front and back yards, and just about everything else. The house's location, near the university, the airport, and two freeways is hard to improve on. The neighborhood is quiet, and we have always felt secure there. We hope to return again to this place and recommend it highly.

Sandia Peak in Albuquerque at 7,000 ft
Car: necessary

Nob Hill is truly one of the most desirable locations in Albuquerque. It has a lively night life and a very eclectic, diverse population.

Our home is located on a quiet street near a major hospital, airport and other public transportation including a commuter train to Santa Fe.

Walk to a wide variety of restaurants, shops and galleries.

Day trips from Albuquerque are my favorite. Santa Fe, Taos, White Sands, Carlsbad caverns, many Native American reservations, Pueblos and ruins, all within a one to three hour drive. We also have the worlds longest tram that takes you from the desert floor to the top of the Sandia Mountains where you get a fantastic view of the city and watch the sunset from a beautiful restaurant at the top.
