  • WHAT A WONDERFUL, EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE!

    "The House of Peace and Love truly lives up to its name. Suzanne is a remarkable woman and make you feel absolutely welcome and cared for. The entire place evokes warm, southwestern hospitality - and spirituality, sophisticated yet so comfortable. Plus the surrounding locale is truly lovely as well, striking and magnificent. My only regret is not staying twice as long!"

    "This house was the PERFECT setting for our family to stay while our youngest son was getting married. It had the perfect kitchen for food preparation and comfortably accommodated our family of 14, ages 10-75. The hiking trails and tram provided great activities for everyone and the view overlooking the city was spectacular!"

Albuquerque Travel Tips

The Qualities of Albuquerque Vacation Rentals

Albuquerque is the largest city of New Mexico and reputed for its desert beauty along the Sandia Mountains. The Sandia Mountains and Rio Grande provide enough wildlife and water to make the desert an abundant living space. The city itself will be largely filled with Spanish structures, modern office buildings, and plenty of attractions. If you are looking for a warm, dry climate for your next vacation, Albuquerque vacation rentals are going to help you make that happen. The vacation rentals are affordable through VRBO. You not only receive great service from the owners of the homes but you will also find luxury during your stay. Albuquerque vacation houses are perfect for family reunions, friendly gatherings, or even a couple’s retreat.

Albuquerque Vacation Houses Allude to the Past

History, as they say, “tells us where we have been” and can certainly enlighten us as to where we are going. Albuquerque has a long history starting with the Native Americans and moving on through the Spanish settlers. Albuquerque as a city was first recorded in 1706 with a group of colonists from Spain. They set up their colony along the Rio Grande River which helped their animals and crops grow. Spanish homes in the traditional style were built, and this is the style you can still see on a vacation trip to Albuquerque lodging. Old Town is most prominent for having older homes dating back to the 19th century conflict between Spanish and American settlers. Many flat-roofed adobe buildings will greet you in old town as you begin to explore the area and its history.

Albuquerque Lodging Near the Shopping Malls

A vacation is never complete unless you are able to bring home souvenirs. Even if you are looking for a few items you forgot to pack, the shopping area of Albuquerque can help you find everything you need. This district is in the Coronado Center on Menaul Street or at the Cottonwood Mall on Coors Boulevard. One also has the Nob Hill District between Washington Street and Girard Boulevard. Nob Hill provides 130 different shops, galleries, and restaurants for you and your family to enjoy. There is also the open-air Uptown Mall for a day outside doing one of your favorite activities.

Albuquerque's Local Amusement for Travelers

Albuquerque as a large city will have more than enough to keep you busy for a week or two. One of your first stops if you love nature and wildlife should be the Aquarium and the Rio Grande Botanic Garden. Marine systems of the Gulf of Mexico are housed in the facility which means stingrays, jellyfish, eels, sharks, and other aquatic life will be there to view. They also have a Butterfly Pavilion with numerous species native to New Mexico. Along the same lines as the aquarium is the American International Rattlesnake Museum. If you have small children with you, this is a great place to learn about the 30 different species of rattlesnakes by seeing them live, as well as their skeletons. Explora is yet another museum of Albuquerque you will want to explore. They house 250 hands-on displays for children and adults alike.

The Weather and Directions for Albuquerque Vacation Rentals

Part of taking a holiday is knowing how to get to your Albuquerque vacation rentals and the surrounding sites. It is also knowing what time of year you should travel to this large city. Before you strike out for the day, you will want to plan what attractions you wish to see. It is better to have a car but there is a bus system to get you around town if need be. As to weather, Albuquerque is still in the desert which means summer can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want to visit at a cooler time of year, consider spring or fall when the plane tickets are more reasonable. Winter can be extremely busy in the city due to travelers seeking a warmer climate.
