Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Back to year purchased: It was newly built in 2008 as a secondary structure behind our home in the Old Town/ Downtown neighborhood of Albuquerque and was therefore built to be exactly what it is. It was envisioned to be the kind of elegant, comfortable, private, and friendly place it is. And, we aren't just pet friendly, we love pets! We think of our cottage as a budget friendly, special accommodation for those who do not like the hustle of hotel travel. Dick and Susan live in the house in front (that's us) and try to give our guests enough personal attention to feel attended to, and enough space and privacy to feel as if they are truly away from their every day lives in a special place in the quirky and historic center of the gorgeous Southwest, Albuquerque.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
We actually purchased the house in 2006 to use it as a short-term rental, but we were so quickly insinuated into the fabric of this very special community that we decided to stay on, but to still have a short-term rental by building one to order, and had fortunately purchased in a neighborhood whose zoning allowed such things. We wanted it to be optionally walkable and bike-able to many of the neighborhood attractions and to also be near the historic center of the city, so that it wouldn't just feel as if it was just a suburb, that could be anywhere. . It is therefore not large, as is the case in central city locations, but has just the right mix of both interior features to enjoy and hassle free attractions to avail oneselves of. You will feel right at home in La Casita Rosada, with owners who treat it like a business but also offer the 'high-touch' usually found at special resort properties.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location, location, owners, on-site pets and lovely amenites. Just read our reviews.
