  • 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"

  • Exceptional Home

    "Casa de Paiz is an exceptional vacation rental. Located a short drive from Albuquerque, the home is nestled in the hills in scenic--and peaceful--surroundings that offer an amazing view of the night sky. The patio, gardens, and koi pond simply add to the serenity. There's plenty of area to walk and discover nature. The home itself is immaculate. Every detail has been considered--live plants in every room, a well-maintained kitchen, comfortable den, tourist brochures, a notebook with helpful information--and many other additions not often found in vacation rentals. The owner(s) was extremely accommodating and gracious. It is obvious that the owner(s) considers Casa de Paiz not just a vacation rental property but a home. The next time we visit the Albuquerque area we will arrange our schedule so that we can stay at Casa de Paiz. We highly recommend it."

  • Sister Trip

    "We stayed for a week. It was one of the most enjoyable vacations we have had and a lot of it was due to Horace. The house was wonderful, just what we were looking for. We also rented the car and it made everything so much easier. Horace made sure we knew good places to eat, places to go see and was always there if we had a problem. We didn't have to worry about getting back and forth to the airport. Horace made us feel welcome and made everything enjoyable. I would recommend this property and owner to anyone visiting Albuquerque. We would definitely rent it again if we would be out that way again. Thank you Horace for everything."

    "My family and I had a great experience at the casita. Our hosts were wonderful and very helpful. They are easy going and helpful and quite interesting. The casita itself was very well designed, clean and comfortable and had the most comfortable bed I ever slept in. I particularly liked the fact that the price the owners listed is the complete price....no hidden expenses or additional charges. I enjoyed the outdoor areas and feel this added that little extra that makes the casita stand out. The hosts set up a table outside so we could enjoy our meals al fresco or just chill with a cup of coffee or a cocktail. I would definitely stay at the casita again."

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.
