About Phyllis Harper-Rispoli
Rob Rispoli and Phyllis Harper-Rispoli are the proud owners of La Perla in Old Town. Having traveled a great deal ourselves, we know how important the little things can be and take delight in providing a "home away from home" for our visitors from around the U.S. and the world. Phyllis, with years of experience in career development, has assisted numerous men and women on how to improve their careers or find new passions. Her experience with people and her dedication to their needs can be seen in the care and consideration she provides to each person that stays at La Perla. Rob has spent decades provide real estate services to families throughout the U.S. He still maintain a mortgage lending company but more often than not you will find him in the courtyard working on the flowers and pond that make the courtyard a quiet peaceful place to 'hang out'. As only the third owners in a hundred years our obligation is to watch over and manage this beautiful historic property for others to enjoy...Rob and Phyllis

Why Phyllis Harper-Rispoli chose Old Town
We moved a great deal and while Tempe, Arizona was our base we lived in Palo Alto, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Durango, CO, Greenville, SC AND Albuquerque. As Tempe and the Phoenix area grew, we decided it was the right time to relocate to a smaller city and a less stressful lifestyle. One day, while on a business trip to Albuquerque, Rob noticed a for sale sign being pounded into the ground in front of a just-renovated Old Town property. He stopped, greeted the owner, went inside, called Phyllis and the rest as they say is history! We love our property and want you to feel as comfortable and relaxed as we do everyday when we greet the day. Come stay with us and enjoy the very best of our town in old town...!
What makes this Cottage unique
La Perla is located in the heart of Old Town. We are close to parks, museums and great shopping. We are a block from the beautiful plaza which has restaurants, art galleries, and authentic Native-American jewelry. We are on the main bus grid and you can be downtown with access to the 'Railrunner' to Santa Fe in eight minutes. We have great local dining and lots of music venues in the summer. We are one mile from the Bio-Park and so much more. Park your car and walk, enjoy the great views, the great weather, and tne wonderful atmosphere of old town! (We do, everyday)

Nice Accommodation Near Old Town
We enjoyed out stay in Albuquerque. The casita met all of our needs and was conveniently located near Old Town. The owners were lovely. Wish we could have stayed longer but our stay was unexpectedly cut short due to personal reasons.
Intimate Casita with all the amenities. I had a very short but pleasurable stay.
We were honored to host a "Senior Games" competitor and sad your injury had to leave early. The trout was delicious. And my apologies that VRBO wouldn't correct the error in what should have been a 5-star guest rating!
Great Old Town Getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Casita in Old Town. The arrival process was seamless, including directions from our previous location in Santa Fe. The hosts were very friendly and helpful while remaining completely respectful of our privacy and space. The Casita was clean, quiet and well stocked with all the comforts of home. Instructions on the use of appliances and electronic devices were clear and reliable. The location was perfect for all the outdoor activities and meals we had planned. We were able to enjoy the outdoor spaces in front and back of the Casita day and night. We are sure you will have the same pleasant experience we had when you choose this location for your Albuquerque trip.
Thank you for your favorable comments about your stay at La Perla, Celeste & Drew. It was a pleasure having you as guests, and a special thank you for leaving the guesthouse so spotless! Phyllis
Great location, awesome hosts.
My spouse and I had a wonderful long weekend stay here. Phyllis, Rob, and Aggie are amazing hosts. They were very accommodating and the location is phenomenal for exploring Albuquerque.
Cozy, comfortable and well appointed!
Jeff and I enjoyed our stay at La Perla near old town Albuquerque. The casita was perfect for us. And Phyllis & Rob were great hosts. We would enjoy staying here again in the future.
Outstanding Choice for a Stay in ABQ
Lovely casita near Old Town with wonderful hosts. The property is exactly as described: clean, comfortable, well apportioned, and close to everything in ABQ. Location is a 10 minute drive from the airport and just a few minutes from major highways. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'll need for fixing your own meals (should you decide to avoid the many delicious eateries in the area), excellent wifi is available, and Phyllis has provided a plethora of travel and sightseeing brochures to suit any tastes. I found the bed and pillows very comfortable, much better than most hotel beds I've encountered ( a big deal for me on vacation, especially after a long day of exploring). The neighborhood is safe and serene and within easy walking distance to Old Town. I very much enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate to book this property again.
I hope you’ll find your way back soon, Rich. Thank you for your lovely comments. Phyllis
