  • Amazing Albuquerque experience!

    "We enjoyed our stay in Albuquerque while our daughter danced at a nearby dance studio! The location of Casa Sandia was perfect for us..close to the Sandia Tramway and casino, historic Old Town, rt. 66, shopping malls, and a rather short drive to Santa Fe. This home has a perfect layout and is so spacious! I just love the kitchen/dining/living area which extends out to the beautiful patio. The southwestern decor is seen throughout this lovely home from the tiled floors to the gorgeous vases and knick knacks. I loved waking up to the gorgeous view of the Sandia mountains out the master bedroom's sliding glass doors and enjoyed having drinks on the balconies in the evening! I'm already looking forward to next summer when I can hopefully have the pleasure of staying at the impeccable Casa Sandia again!"

  • Simply Wonderful!

    "My husband and I spent Christmas in the loft. Our son goes to school and works in Albuquerque. Although we only live about three and half hours away we thought it would be fun to spend it with him in the big city! We wanted to be able to cook and spend some quality time together. Linda has a first class kitchen and you don't need to bring a thing except your food and clothes! The accommodations were perfect for us. Very classy! The bed is very comfortable, we both sleep well. The guys had fun playing pool. Excellent restaurants to walk to. Lots of safe walking over in the old country club neighborhood. Christmas eve was beautiful in that neighborhood. We will stay again when we come to Albuquerque for 2 or more nights! Loved it. Linda and Frank are SO easy to work with and talk to. Thank you Linda and Frank for everything. This was not our first vrbo stay somewhere but it was one of the best! Karan L"

    "This older pueblo style home is long on charm and character while providing all the modern amenities. It is very tastefully decorated and has is very well equipped with everything from a popcorn popper to a crock pot. We especially enjoyed the private courtyard enclosed by an adobe fence, where we could look at the plants, gaze across the farm field behind the house and look at the incredible New Mexican sky. The owners, Bill and Janislee, live across the road. The struck an excellent balance of being attentive and helpful without being intrusive. We felt very comfortable in this house and it was like coming home after some sightseeing or taking a bike ride along the superb trail along the Rio Grande, which is visible from the house. This house is great for two people. It could get tight with older children or with visitors of more than a few days. We would count ourselves lucky to return to this house if we get back to Albuquerque."

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.
