About Jeannie

I got the idea of a vacation rental when visiting San Diego, CA and staying at one. I was so pleased with the amenities, that I wanted to provide something similar in my hometown (which I love) in Albuquerque! Another influence (and most important) is my Grandfather, actually known as my Dad by most (since he raised me)- Ignacio Cordova,known as 'IGGY' by those he knows. He is a retired CMSgt. The Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force (CMSAF) is a unique non-commissioned rank in the United States Air Force. The holder of this rank and post represents the highest enlisted level of leadership in the Air Force, and as such, provides direction for the enlisted corps and represents their interests, as appropriate, to the American public, and to those in all levels of government. He also directed and lead his family. What I love about my Grandpa, is not only did he teach and discipline provided me with a 'home' not just a house. Most people that know him, recognize his saying 'Mi Casa Es Su Casa' (My house is your house). I hope that I can make my Vacation Rental feel like that for all my guests. Mi Casa Es su Casa....

Jeannie purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jeannie chose Vista Del Norte Alliance

I chose the ABQ Condo for many reasons. The location: it's close to freeway access, the International Balloon Fiesta, and centrally located to access most interests in Albuquerque with ease. Another Reason is that the condo is in a gated community: many of my guests like the idea of the security of a gated community. Also, there are two pools (opened seasonally) which is an amenity many families with children look for when vacationing.

Great choice in Albuquerque!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for Grandma & Grandpa, Mom & Dad, 4 y/o girl & 6 y/o boy. Plenty of room to spread out. We appreciated the many amenities furnished and it was well maintained. Property owner was so helpful and as a bonus, one morning we woke early to find right next to our condo, in full view - at least 25 balloons in various stages of inflating (actual Balloon Fest was at least one month away). Location was close (within 5-10 min) to everything we needed. The mountains are breathtaking. A great choice & hope it's available next visit.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

I am a travel nurse and stayed in this condo for 2 1/2 months. It was absolutely perfect. It is in a gated community with beautiful views of the mountains and close to everything Albuquerque has to offer. The condo is fully furnished and includes anything and everything that you might need for a short or long stay. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. I had a question for the owner concerning the garage door and she responded immediately and addressed the issue. She was always available and easy to reach though everything was so perfect I really did not need to have much contact. I recommend this property to anyone looking to have a comfortable stay in Albuquerque. Thanks again for everything.

A Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family all met in Albuquerque for a wedding and had a great time at Jeannie's condo. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean, and lovely. Our adult children and a few grands were all able to make meals in the extremely well-stocked kitchen. We were really impressed with the quality and attractiveness of the pots and pans, dishes, and appliances. We enjoyed the tour books and magazines, wifi, and the full television programming. Jeannie thought of everything including leaving a lovely note offering her assistance, if needed. We will definitely be back to this home away from home.

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying in this property and we look forward to many more stays. Every aspect of the condo is excellent. From location, cleanliness, utility, and every other aspect of accommodation. The owner could not be more pleasant and accommoddating of the personal issues we had to deal with during our stay. If a recommendation is ever needed, let me know.

New Mexico Balloon Fiesta

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at your home in Albuquerque, NM Oct. 3rd - 10th of 2015. The stay exceeded our expectations! We went for the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. It was very conveniently located to the grounds and the view from the balcony was breathtaking! We felt safe in the gated community. Your home was clean and kept up. We highly recommend it! Thank you! ~Jane and Randy, Jan and Doug from WI

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the Albuquerque Condo..So happy you enjoyed your stay and the beautiful Balloon Fiesta... Yes, the city has designated the field just south of the condo as an official landing field. Many balloons migrate to this area to land... Glad you were able to experience it!

Very Nice Condo In Good Area

My family stayed at this condo while house hunting in ABQ. It was pretty clean and very comfortable and served our needs well. The owner was helpful too and a pleasure to work with. Would recommend to others.
