  • Modern Gem in Nob Hill

    "I had the pleasure of staying in this gorgeous property for a full week, while in town for the yearly flamenco festival. The home is not justified in pictures, with each room having it's own private exit to the numerous patios in the front and back yards. There are many skylights and widows that allow sunlight to pour into this bright and colorful home. The retro kitchen and furnishings only add to the cozy yet modern ambiance of the house. I loved that the house was in walking distance to all the lively shops, bars and restaurants on Central in Nob Hill. My friend and I did not use our car from arrival to departure. The best part of our stay was Pamela, who was eager to answer any questions I had before booking. We ran into the tiny misfortune of being the firsts guests of the year to need to use the AC, only to discover it was not working. When it did not turn on as expected, Pamela immediately came out to repair the AC. She was so apologetic about the minor inconvenience that she graciously, and without asking, gave me a credit back for a portion of my stay. I cannot say enough about how amazing this property is and how wonderful Pamela's customer service was!! Stay here and you will not be disappointed!"

  • Spring Break - Family of 4

    "This house is beautiful, well-equipped, comfortable and convenient to so many sites in and around ABQ. The view of the mountains is spectacular. In addition to the wonderful accommodations, the owners went above and beyond to make our vacation truly special. They thought of everything! Our family has rented vacation homes in many locations over the years and have had good experiences. However, we never received the incredible treatment we received here. We could not have been more pleased!"

  • All of the comforts of home and so much more.

    "Our family of six vacationed in Albuquerque this summer to visit family. We really enjoyed the comfort and exquisite amenities this home features. The location of this home is ideal, easily accessible to grocery stores, coffee shops, bike/walking paths, Albuquerque attractions and especially picturesque views! The owners of this home were a pleasure to work with. They were very thoughtful and considerate as well as thorough in the information they provided about their home and the Albuquerque area. Some of our favorite things about this home were the lovely picture windows to observe day and night time views of Albuquerque, absolutely beautiful! My husband and I enjoyed watching storms roll over the Albuquerque skyline. We could not wait to get up and watch the presentation of colors displayed on the mountains, as the sun rose each morning, from one of the impressive patios or deck. In the evening, we enjoyed walking around the serene neighborhood and watching the exquisite sunsets. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the stunning swimming pool. During our stay, our two year old marveled at the fish pond and took great pleasure in feeding the fish with her grandpa. Several varieties of birds ate from the feeders, even a roadrunner stopped by to eat. We enjoyed cooking in the backyard and often ate our evening meals in the dining room as it too had fabulous views of the attractive backyard and mountains. After a visit to New Mexico, you will understand why they call it “The Land of Enchantment.” We would highly recommend this wonderful home to anyone planning a stay in Albuquerque. The property is clean, comfortable and very well maintained. The home had everything we needed and then some. I imagine this home is just as impressive in the winter time. We had a wonderful time in Albuquerque and our family couldn’t have been more pleased with our exceptional accommodations. Our kindest regards to the owners."

  • Old Town Charmer

    "We typically stay in Timeshare resorts, but as there are few in Albuquerque, we went with a Vacation Home. We are so glad we did! This restored adobe casita had all the conveniences of home but with the charm of Old New Mexico. The location was great: walk to Old Town Plaza (lots of great shops and eateries), across from a great park, near museums. We also enjoyed quick access to the freeway to get us across town or up to Santa Fe and Taos. We followed the Turquoise Trail and made it to the top of Sandia Peak, great views! The owner's use of antique doors and furniture combined with comfortable seating was greatly appreciated."

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.
