Property description

The first thing that will catch your eye is the colorful front door and flower-filled window boxes. Inside the large open great room has an office area, living area, TV area, and kitchen area.
The bedroom is small but well organized. It has a new double bed that can sleep two, with a comfortable new foam-type mattress. New luxurious bedding and pillows will make you want to spend all day in bed--but you won't--because there's so much else to do!

The kitchen is fully equipped to cook for yourself or your family. There's a French door leading out to the back with a roomy, shady deck and a table with 4 chairs. Follow the new walk-way around and you'll find another seating area. Container plants and an inground garden abound.

Another great thing about this property is the location. It's right around the corner from the zoo, within walking of the Flying Star (a great restaurant and meeting place) and the Bosque Bakery. An easy hop over to Old Town and the botanical gardens and aquarium.

This address has a Walkscore of 83 and a Bikescore of 90. (Check out Walkscore.com).

A small dog is allowed but check with me first.

Check-in time is between 3 and 5 pm. There is a $50 late check-in fee for arrivals after 10 pm.

Check-out time is usually 9 am if I have someone coming in the same day.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I'm originally from Boston via LA. I landed in Albuquerque in 1998 and never left. I've been a teacher (I was in the Middle East all of the 80s), a writer, a house renovator, and a Realtor, now with two properties to offer for short term vacation or business rentals. I love Albuquerque and can help you find just what you are looking for to make your trip here special.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
I had just sold my last house--one that I had renovated and updated--and was looking for my next project. A friend had just put this cottage on the market, and when I drove up to the property, then walked inside, I just knew I had to have it. The next day I made an offer and closed on it within the month. In addition to this property I own another one and manage another. If the calendar is full here, check out the other two. Listing #s 589710 or 627820.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The first thing that struck me was how cute it was. I added window boxes, along with a neighboring cottage, and it became even cuter. The colorful front door, the wide plank reclaimed pine floors, and the bank of windows all around drew me to it. And the openness made this 600 sq ft home feel so much bigger. The private deck and backyard clinched the deal.
