A recent comment from an inquirer maybe sums it up best:
** 'The past week I have gone over the VRBO listings for Albuquerque and area repeatedly, and there is no doubt in my mind that your house has the best combination of features, location, and value of any other property. All this is supported by the many glowing comments from previous guests and the fact that yours is in such high demand. And I must add that the photos and presentation(staging) of your house is first rate.' **
Claw foot tub with shower. Heated tile floor. Automatic exhaust fan. (Tub is higher than standard tub, so people who are not steady on their feet may find it trickier than most tubs to step into.)...moreless

About the owner: As a native New Mexican, I love to share and promote Albuquerque and its surroundings. It is the unsung hero of the Southwest; a wonderfully diverse town with great weather, the amenities of a fairly large city, and yet in close proximity to abundant outdoor activities and wilderness areas. Free time finds me hiking and mountain biking in the Sandias, or exploring our many beautiful National Forests.
Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque: My parents had stayed at the Casa de Calderones on their yearly month-long visits to New Mexico. They loved the house! So when it came on the market, we jumped at the chance to own and manage this lovely, well maintained property. The previous owner lovingly renovated the home, doing most of the work himself. We feel lucky to inherit his efforts and devotion to this property.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The location of this property is nearly perfect; close to the river for walking and birdwatching, close to Old Town, the heart of the city, with museums and restaurants, and with easy access to the highway. Many important parts of the city are within 20 minutes, and yet it feels very private and quiet.
