Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Bill, a retired kindergarten special education teacher originally from Oklahoma (and other parts) has lived in Albuquerque since the early 1970s. Joseph, now retired from physical therapy, has been a resident since 1987 and was born and raised in west central Wisconsin near the Mississippi. Our combined knowledge of Albuquerque and New Mexico enables us to answer many questions a visitor to the area might have. We also enjoy giving our opinion about living in Albuquerque and areas of the city for those contemplating a move. We are now devoting more time to our two properties, getting more exercise, and doing some road trips. We enjoy Mexico and have a trip to Jalisco planned for 2015. We keep talking about a train trip from Paris to Prague but that appears to be a couple of years away.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
Our other vacation rental, located in a 100-year-old casita, provides an intimate, nostalgic feeling. We decided that we would also like to host guests nearby in a larger, more modern setting. Both properties are approximately 1/2 mile from Old Town.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
No cleaning fee. We provide weekly cleaning and linen change for guests staying longer periods of time. For bikers, walkers, joggers and birdwatchers, we are approx. 1.75 miles from Tingley Beach (fishing ponds), the Paseo del Bosque biking/walking/jogging trail and the Rio Grande itself. If you prefer, you can take the unpaved trail in the bosque (the cottonwood greenbelt) that parallels the river. Check out bicycle rental at Routes (routesrentals.com) in Old Town. They also offer tours. Birdwatchers and nature lovers will not want to miss a drive south on I-25 to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, best visited in the colder months when thousands of Sandhill cranes, snow geese and other feathered friends overwinter. For those a little less active, walk or drive the 1/2 mile to the Old Town area to visit the iconic San Felipe de Neri church, stroll and shop. Right there also are the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, the Museum of Natural History and Science with the Lodestar Astronomy Center, and the Explora Children's Discovery Museum. The botanic gardens and aquarium are located another 1/3 mile from Old Town. From here you can take the little train to the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo to spend a few delightful hours. The National Hispanic Cultural Center is 2.2 miles away (nhccnm.org). It has an excellent art museum with permanent and current exhibits. And if you're staying in our city for a longer period of time, try a Spanish course at Instituto Cervantes (www.albuquerque.cervantes.es). www.indianpueblo.org will give further information about the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center ('Gateway to the 19 pueblos of New Mexico), located just 1.1 miles north of Sandia Mountain Condo. In summary, you will not have a lack of things to do at centrally-located Sandia Mountain Condo! The owners, Bill and Joseph, can answer any questions you may have about getting the most out of your stay in Albuquerque.
