Albuquerque house description

I bought this house because I always wanted to live in this highly desired neighborhood! Casa Margarita is in a quiet, serene neighborhood. Yet, walk a few short blocks to RT. 66 restaurants, shops, galleries, coffee, groceries, salons, theatre, UNM, and more. Only 4 mi. to Old Town, 2.8 mi. to the Convention Center & Downtown, 4 mi to the Zoo/Biopark/Aquarium. Learn more about our neighborhood. Go to http://rt66central.com/

Casa Margarita is a luxurious, fully remodeled 1930's New Mexican Casa.
3 or 4 bedrooms including the optional gorgeous detached Casita, jetted tub
- refrigerated air conditioning
- large-screen HDTVs with DirecTV/DVR (record your favorite shows & games for viewing after a day of sightseeing)
- gourmet's kitchen well stocked with quality cookware and everything you need
- beautifully landscaped private patio with quality, full-sized gas BBQ grill
- wonderfully quiet and peaceful neighborhood
-Look for 'Mo' in the yard, our local roadrunner

3-bedroom main house includes a king, a queen, a trundle bed (two twins), and two bathrooms, one with luxurious jetted tub.

Detached Casita (optional add on @$49/nt) is spacious and beautiful with king bed and full bathroom.

4-night Minimum. But on occasion, we will consider shorter stays at last minute.
