About the property

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location for what we wanted to do.

  • 5 of 5

We found everything to be what we expected and what was told to us by the owners. The location is great; we made day trips to Sante Fe and Taos with frequent visits to Albuquerque and 'Olde Town'. This was our first visit to New Mexico and we thoroughly enjoyed it because of the way we could relax from our excursions. If anyone is looking for a comfortable way to get around this home makes for a wonderful way to start a day!

Perfect Southwest Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Christine was so helpful and accommodating for my husband who is disabled. She installed grab bars in the shower and provided a shower chair.

Home is lovely and has everything one might need.

Location was perfect for exploring Albuquerque, Santa Fe and wilderness areas as well...not to mention great restaurants!

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.

Terrific Property

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.
