Property description

This studio casita has just been completely remodeled and it's a combination of classy and cozy. There are new travertine and marble floors, a large walk-in shower with subway tile, and a small kitchenette with new cabinetry, a toaster oven, microwave, and fridge. (There's no stove, but I can provide a hot plate if required.) There's a comfortable queen size bed with new linens and towels; a flat screen TV with cable provided. Wifi and all utilities are included. A table and chairs is provided for meals (a cute retro style), as well as a desk and desk chair. All utensils and dishes are provided as well.

The casita/guest house is located on the property where I live and you will have access to the garden and all the outdoor furniture.

This is only 3 blocks away from my other listing (479374) and both are so close to the zoo, you can occasionally hear the lion, monkey and sea lions from both.

Parking is on the street, right in front of the main house. You would reach the casita through a private gate. The casita is fully enclosed and private.

The casita is close to the zoo, the botanical gardens, Flying Star, Old Town, Garcia's Kitchen, downtown, the hospitals, and Nob Hill. It's just a hop and a skip to I-25 and an hour away from Santa Fe.

A small dog is allowed. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I own or manage 3 VRBO properties. One is an adorable cottage (if I do say so myself) about 3 blocks away (479374), another is a gorgeous 3 bedroom house in the Nob Hill/Ridgecrest area and this newly classy and cozy renovated one. I'm a designer/renovator/Realtor. I moved to Albuquerque in 1998 from Florida and have come to love this city. I've lived in California, Boston, Florida and even overseas in the Middle East. But I think I'm staying put now in Albuquerque. I love the downtown/Old Town/ Nob Hill sections of Albuquerque and the 'one ways' (Coal and Lead) let you access all three very easily. I am happy to give you sightseeing suggestions and also how to find the nearest grocery store and my favorite restaurants.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
When I recently sold my big house (it also had a VRBO unit), I wanted to downside. I looked for a small house in a good location, on a nice lot with a guest house..and I was lucky to find this one. It's got everything I could want..and I believe everything a vacationer or corporate traveler could want too.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
I love the French doors that go into the casita and nice lawn and pretty flowers all around. There are two apricot trees almost ready for picking. I think we will have a lot of apricot jam this summer. Another thing I like about the casita is the pretty banco tiled in black travertine, so smooth to the touch. The casita also has a new 'minisplit'...an air conditioner/heat unit that you can easily operate with the remote control. The shower is really beautiful with a frameless glass door, clean and fresh subway tile, a large shower head and plenty of hot water. It's a place to be comfortable and cozy.
