Albuquerque House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Nestled in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains this newly remodeled home is the perfect location for your stay in Albuquerque. Views of the mountain and city lights can be seen from both patios of the home. Located just off Tramway Blvd and Paseo Del Norte this home provides easy access to the many nearby sites. The 'World's Longest Tram' is basically in your backyard. Enjoy a spectacular ride to the top of the mountain where a day of skiing or hiking awaits you or just take a ride to enjoy a fine dining experience at High Finance Restaurant. If you are wanting a more casual dining experience, I recommend the Mexican restaurant at the base of the tram which offers a spectacular view from the patio. Enjoy a mango margarita while viewing a spectacular New Mexico sunset.

If you are feeling lucky only a few more minutes down the hill you will find Sandia Resort and Casino offers the largest gaming facility in the state. The resort features a top rated golf course, spa facilities, restaurants, live entertainment and dancing. Don't forget to check out the buffalo that you can see from the road on the way down.

If you are wanting to get some exercise mountain bikes are available upon request. The bike trail is only a minute away. Don't be surprised if you pass some quail or 'beep-beep' there goes a road runner.

Forgot some essentials? A new CVS pharmacy is two minutes away. Other close by shopping includes Alberston's, Trader Joes, Barnes and Nobles, Target, and Kohls.

Once your day is complete you can relax in contemporary southwestern flair. Our home provides a spacious living area with hardwood floors and high ceilings that feature famous New Mexico artist's work.

A 50'' flat screen LCD in both the master bedroom and living room with Direct TV. Wireless internet for your laptop is available also.

The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances with a top quality kitchenware to prepare meals that can be enjoyed at the bar or at the gorgeous dining room table that can seat up to 6 people.

This home is the perfect retreat for two couples because each bedroom has it own bathroom and private patio area.

About Christine Hoffee

Welcome to my casa! Originally from Louisiana, I came to the 'Land of Enchantment' on a tennis scholarship from the University of New Mexico. After graduation I decided to make Albuquerque my home. It is simply a wonderful place to live. In fact, I live right next door to my vacation home. So if there are any issues or help I can provide I am happy to help immediately. It is like having your own concierge at your disposal. Because I tennis allowed me to travel much of my life, I feel I have a good understanding what a traveler requires. I always preferred housing over hotels. The unique aspect of this house is that everything is brand new in it. From the flooring to the light fixtures, toilets, sinks, showers, furnishings, dinnerware, EVERYTHING! It is meticulously clean yet extremely comfortable with all modern amenities in an excellent location. I look forward to your stay!

Christine Hoffee purchased this house in 2007

Why Christine Hoffee chose Albuquerque

I chose to purchase a vacation rental in Sandia Heights because of the location. The area is an upscale neighborhood in the Sandia foothills. There are very few homes in this area that are available to rent. It is extremely tranquil and the views are spectacular. The location is perfect because it is only 20 minutes to the Albuquerque airport and downtown and only 45 minutes to Santa Fe. Living next door makes it easy to manage and allows me to provide the upmost attention to any needs that need to be met. Because the home has been COMPLETELY remodeled allows me to just focus on the needs of each guest, sort of like a personal concierge service. Having lived here for over 20 years I am very familiar with the city and what it has to offer.

Great Property with a Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here over the Christmas holidays with our son and daughter-in-law while visiting our youngest son who lives in Albuquerque. Excellent property in a quiet neighborhood in the Sandia foothills. It was our first time renting a VRBO, but Christine made it a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend this or any of Christine's other properties. Until next time.

This was the perfect place to stay while my son played in a golf tournament at Sandia. Super quiet and comfortable neighborhood, excellent furnishings and the owners were a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to visiting again.

Excellent Sandia Heights Home

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Sandia Heights home...Great location in beautiful safe neighborhood right off of Tramway so very easy freeway access. Close 10 min walk to hiking trails that take you up into the foothills. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and well stocked kitchen with everything in working order. Good layout of living room sectional couch. Extremely large dining table (with removable center leaf) made it easy for us to host Christmas for our extended family. Nice even radiant heat throughout. Places to relax outside both front & back. Fenced in yard made it easy for us to bring our dogs. Owner very responsive & easy to work with. Will definitely book again.

I highly recommend this property. The pictures don't do it justice. It was better than expected. It was clean and highly functional. Really enjoyed riding the bikes in the neighborhood. Chris was quick to respond to any questions I had and easy to work with.

Best location in Albuquerque, super close to Tramway and beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Property was very comfortable and clean. We planned on cooking here to avoid expensive restaurants and the kitchen did not disappoint, very well prepared for cooking inside and out (propane grill). Several grocery stores within a few miles. We went for walks every evening and the neighborhood CAN NOT BE BEAT! The only thing in front of the mountain view when walking in the neighborhood is a very few lovely adobe homes. There are walking/biking paths. This location is IMO the best in Albuquerque. There are 2 beds and 2 baths. Owner was nearby and very responsive to our needs, was never obtrusive. Owner put together a property information sheet that explained all the needed details such as heating/AC and Wifi. I would definitely recommend this property (unless you plan to use it the same time we're coming back because we want it)!
