                            My wife and I have stayed in various casitas/cabins throughout northern New Mexico and Colorado. This is by far the best one we've stayed!! Very quiet neighborhood, next to a New Mexico icon, the Range Café, it has been restored to perfection to please the guest and still feel the charm of northern New Mexico with its proximity to Albuquerque. The closed yard was perfect for our dogs. We will definitely stay there again when we visit the ABQ area!

                            This is a great place to stay! The cozy bungalow has been completely renovated and has everything needed for a relaxing vacation. Although the Range Cafe (same owner as the bungalow!) is across the street, the kitchen is fully equipped for meal preparation for two or more! But also go to the Range for a breakfast or dinner and you won't be disappointed! We love having a king sized bed, the two terraces and the comfortable living room. Since we spend a good bit of our time hiking, we love the location, closer than Albuquerque to the Sandia and Jemez mountains. The owners were very available to answer questions or help with anything to make our stay more pleasant. We'll be back soon!

                            My cousins and I had the most relaxing and wonderful stay in Casa De Pancho during Balloon Fiesta. Such a lovely property, tastefully decorated and a super plus is that the famous Range restaurant is right across the street! We enjoyed several wonderful meals at The Range during our stay in Bernalillo. The four of us were very comfortable. We enjoyed the walk in shower, modern kitchen appliances, washer and dryer, kiva fire place etc.The kitchen was also well stocked with everything needed for making a few of our own meals too. We had plenty of everything we could possibly need including soaps, shampoos and firewood. A great location also. Getting to the Balloon Fiesta was quick and very easy, plus Santa Fe is just minutes away.I highly recommend Casa De Pancho and must say that Matt is a very kind and helpful host. We want to return very soon !

                            Description and photos of the Bernalillo Casita were accurate. Owner/Partners (Matt & Lou) were accessible and helpful...........though we had no "special requests" during our 7 night stay. We noticed and appreciated many "little amenities" present for our use inside the Casita that we have rarely seen in other rentals. For us, proximity of the Casita to THE RANGE CAFE accross the street was a VERY BIG PLUS; and we found the food, libations and live music excellent in every respect. Nearby proximity to excellent golf (Twin Warriors, Santa Ana, Cochiti & Sandia) and the Santa Ana and Sandia Resort Casinos met our expectations as well. The only caveat for us, because we were accompanied by our small dog, was that the nearest "patch of pet friendly green grass" was the Rotary Park located 4 blocks from the Casita; and "Cali" (our dog) was tormented throughout our stay by some type of small "brown burr" which invariably attached itself to multiple places in her non-shedding fur each time we allowed her feet to touch the ground both inside the brick-paved fenced area in front of the Casita or even in the graveled parking area adjacent to the Casita. If you aren't accompanied by your "furry friend" when you come to Casa de Pancho, you will likely be VERY HAPPY with these thoughtful and security conscious accommodations as we were.

                            Home itself looks very old … because it is. It was originally built in 1865. But inside it is very convenient and has been updated with lots of nice features. Most of the doors are very low, however, so watch your head! • Remodeled, updated bathroom with walk-in, glassed shower • Modern gas stove and dishwasher • Modern top and bottom washer and dryer that works great • Big screen TV. Lots of local stations plus more (ESPN, weather channel) even though not all of the cable stations. • Convenient work space and desk near front for using a computer; good internet connection • Comfortable deck and outdoor seating area in back near grill with a hammock. Gas grill works great. We used it a number of times. • Kiva fireplace is available with plenty of firewood but we never needed to use it. Unit stayed very comfortable. We didn’t have many requests at all of the owner, Matt, but he was very responsive when we did have a question or needed something. He owns the Range Café right across the street from the unit. This unit was very comfortable for us during our stay and the price is extremely reasonable. We definitely recommend it

                            Unit allows dogs. We found a nice dog park - North Domingo Baca dog park . • 10 miles south on I-25. Exit at Alameda (#233). • Just east (mountain side) of I-25 between Alameda and Paseo del Norte Albuquerque Sunport airport • Unit is about 20 miles north of the airport, all on I-25 • Traffic getting to airport on I-25 was pretty good for us, even early on a Monday morning • There are two Railrunner commuter train stops in Bernalillo – one less than a half mile away and the other about a mile and half o If your flight doesn’t leave until after 9:30AM or so, you can take the train to the airport instead of driving. Costs only $3 each way and there is a free shuttle from the train station in Albuquerque to the airport. Unit is about 20 miles from downtown Albuquerque and Old Town. Bernalillo is quite old and not modern, or high income by any means. But it is a quiet and safe area and very conveniently located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. It has quick, easy access to I-25. Small grocery and hardware stores are very nearby – just across the street. US550 is a mile and half north. Lots of fast food places. Then if you go west on 550 and turn south on US528 (Pat D’Arco Hwy), there are more fast food places, Home Depot, Albertson’s etc. • We preferred the Smith’s grocery store near the Domingo Baca Dog park. It seems less expensive and has a lot of selection. We combined our grocery shopping with trips to the dog park. More information about the house itself is included in a following review.

                            My husband and I stayed at the casita for a month and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The casita was charming and cozy; the bed was especially comfortable. The kitchen appliances were first rate. Since I love to cook, this was a real plus! The location was ideal for us as we used the train nearby to travel to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Matt was most accommodating responding quickly to any request. We entertained guests and enjoyed the kiva fireplace. All in all, it was a most delightful stay which we look forward to repeating.

                            We loved our stay here in this comfortable and convenient casita. Everything we needed was included and we found it easy to care for and relaxing. The owners were always responsive to any questions or needs and made us feel at home right away. They even decorated for Christmas! The art work was interesting and decor appropriate. It was a very enjoyable stay. Bernalillo is perfect for a month long stay because it is close to the freeway and you can get to anywhere in the area easily. The Range Cafe is right across the street and has excellent food and service.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing.

                            I was very disappointed in the place, beacuse it wasen't clean the floors were so dirty and the counter tops in the kitchen was awfull. I got there and was very tired but to my fright the next morning I relized the sheets had not been changed .The dust was so bad I had to do the cleaning. Its a very old area on a back alley of an old street. The floors are uneven to walk on. The owner is very nice about everything and took care of what I owed. Would I go back again not there.

                            Owner response: I expected this level of review from this person. I wish there was a way for us owners to review the people that stay with us. Suffice it to say, please regard this review with a grain of salt. In 4 years of guests staying with us we have not had one shred of a negative review on our casita. In this instance, no comments were made during a three week stay until the very end when payment was trying to be avoided. Had these issues been brought up at the beginning then every attempt would have been made to correct any problem. As it turned out, the accusations of a filthy place were highly exaggerated. There is a reason that we get numerous repeat guests at our casita. I stand by our amenities and the cleanliness of our accommodations. Thank you.

                            Just perfect! Very comfortable home. The home was well equipped --from soap and towels to coffee and cream in refrigerator. The pictures on the internet were very helpful. There was a book explaining many items in the home, however, Matt was on site to help me get familiar with things. This home is very convenient to many interesting sites and of course, a great restaurant "The Range" just across the street! Thank you for my perfect vacation!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Your hosts are Matt and Lou. We've traveled all over the world and know what makes a comfortable place to stay.

                          Why the Owner Chose Bernalillo:
                          We loved the house and knew it would make a great place for out of town guests to stay. It took over a year and a lot of work to restore the original charm of this comfortable house. We live and work in the area and think it has a lot to offer someone who wants the comfort of a nice hotel, but the charm of a house.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We love the quiet and comfort of the home and enjoy spending time there when it is available. Bernalillo is a town with a lot of history. We have lived in the area since 1986 and believe it is a great place to stay while discovering New Mexico.
