The House of Peace and Love is a 5,000 sq ft private estate at the base of the Sandia Mountains in the Beverly Hills of Albuquerque. This is the perfect place to relax, renew, rejuvenate, and create new memories. The house has five uniquely decorated private rooms and two large common areas with a flat screen TV & pool table. We rent individual rooms as a bed and coffee, but can rent the entire property for large groups. We comfortably sleep up to 25 people. Our guests have come together to celebrate the big O Birthdays (40,50,60, 70, 80.), family reunions, weddings, and gatherings for grieving the loss of a loved one. The kitchen is fully stocked, and all private rooms have small individual refrigerators and microwaves. Bedding and towels are provided.
The house has four lovely gardens with fountains, hammocks, hot tub, and mediation areas. There is outdoor dining and seating for 20, with an outdoor kitchen/BBQ area. In the spring, roses and sunflowers bloom with grape arbors and wild flowers. We are close to Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Wal-Mart and Smiths for shopping. There is laundry, off-street parking, and additional refrigerators for food storage. We also have children's toys, videos, and books available.
This is a great temporary housing situation if you are tired of staying in hotels with kitchenettes and like to cook and relax. Many film support crews as well as the cast have had long term stays. Traveling doctors, nurses, athletes in training, and business executives have all enjoyed their long term stays here.
You will have fun, feel comfortable, meet interesting people, and thoroughly enjoy your stay. It is guests' responsibility to read the terms and conditions prior to booking.

Not clean & huge disappointment
This was such a disaster we did not stay but rather moved to a hotel. We were told this property was located in "the Beverly Hills" of Albuquerque, but I would characterize this as run down and very dirty. We were scheduled to stay in the great red room, but in the room there were used tissues, a dirty bowl with a spoon, a used drinking glass, and dirty gardening shears upon our arrival. We were offered another space, but this space did not appear to have been cleaned in quite some time as evidenced by the giant cobwebs throughout. Also, the light was not working in that space. The owner was extremely disorganized around who would let us in the property. Since the person was not there, she attempted to direct us on a tour over the phone. The property clearly was not ready for us, but when I asked for a refund, the owner offered a voucher and then stopped corresponding. Extremely unprofessional, and extremely disappointing for our girls' weekend for three childhood friends. I would not recommend this property.
The property is located in the equivalent of the Beverly Hills of ABQ. It was cleaned by a professional cleaning company.prior to their arrival.There are not gieant cobwebs anywhere in the house I live in the house and conduct business there . We are in the high desert, this time of year we have dust storms and intense fall weather. The property is monitored to be prepared before guests arrive The client called complaining about arranging a trip for two childhood friends whom she did not want to be traveling with and appeared to have outgrown the relationships. She wanted her own room they wanted to be all together so they were offered group space to accommodate her . This space is less expensive than the private rooms. There are three and they could choose from. upon arrival. . I was out of town and arranged and paid to have another adult who helps me meet them at the property. They were suppose to call her and she would go an hour ealry dust, empty small trash , pick up water glasses bowls etc. spray with fabrieze , etc. to make sure that everything was ready . Instead they just showed up at the house and did not call. . There was a glass and a small waste basket with three or four tissues in it.which would have been dealt with if they had called as directed. When they came my book keeper was at the house and she didn't know what to do so she let them in. I was called and had my work interrupted. I told them that the helper was on her way. I attempted to guide them through the property , hot tub, gardens, water machine in the kitchen etc. while waiting for my helper to arrive. I offered the clients two private rooms for them to stay in since they were unhappy . This was offered to them at not cost. The helper arrived . They were loading their luggage. refused to engage with her. drove away. Allll of their concerns would have been met if they had followed our directions and contacted the person an hour prior to arrival I do not refund after check in. However ,I was happy to offer a voucher to use at a later date with out her friends so she might return and enjoy herself. My book keeper said that the she was very positive and nice and her friends were complaining and unhappy about everything. After I offered a voucher ,I did not hear from her again until her negative review.
Great place for large groups!
The house is very interesting, but more important for large groups, there is plenty of space. We had a great time at Suzanne's and recommend it!
The Burning House of Love!
Suzanne's friend and professional fire fighter emeritus entertained our pyromaniac son with all sorts of questions about fire, flame, heat... the house is labyrinthine but definitely bohemian and full of love. Felt trusted by the hostess like old friends - how can you beat that! Location to the ABQ side of Sandia Peak is very convenient! Definitely recommend this property!
Loved loved loved having you as guests. You really blessed my home! Please come again anytime.
Casa la Paz was the most interesting home we have ever stayed in. The art work the furniture the intimate spaces the hot tub the warm and gracious hostess made for a relaxing comfortable stay
A Perfect Retreat
Our five days were wonderful, a relaxing combination of sight seeing and conversations in the evening in the warm and comfortable living room. We would recommend this well furnished convenient residence to everyone seeking to really experience the "Land of Enchantment".
Friend Reunion with Paz y Amor
The Casa de Paz y Amor was the perfect home to host our large group for my 30th birthday celebration during the Balloon Festival. Dr. Lopez and her assistant Brittany were helpful months in advance to make sure we had the home to ourselves and that we would know how to take advantage of the area and the festival. Both had great restaurant recommendations and made us feel at home in ABQ. The home is only a 5 min drive from the festival shuttle and a few minutes (some of my friends even walked when needed) to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. Our favorite area was the beautifully and eclectically decorated outdoors where we grilled, all ate together, and were able to play games and catch up in the vibrant outdoor gathering spaces. The home has Dr. Lopez's personal creative art, memorabilia from all over the world and warm southwestern charm. From the pool table, to the hot tub to lounging in hammocks to a fully set kitchen with pots and pans to having a clean, comfortable bed for each guest---the home was just what we needed for a relaxing weekend getaway. Perfect balance between large group gathering spaces and private nooks for the introverts to recharge. Dr. Lopez's assistant, Alicia stayed with us the entire weekend taking care of trash and helping us navigate the home. She was great about giving us our private space and we enjoyed having her for our game night. I would be careful with small children with all the art (we did not have any with us) and beautiful decorations. Thank you, Dr. Lopez for a great weekend and for opening your home to us! We will be back.
Abby and her friends and family were wonderful guests. We were sooo happy to host them. Abby gave all the staff thank you cards at the end of their stay! Simply a delight. Please come back any time and we would love to have you.
