Guestbook comments from the owner

We’ve seen a lot of remodels and this is the most remarkable. The design, paint colors, furnishings, and decorating is amazing. The wonderful artwork compliments everything you’ve done.

It has been a pleasure staying here. This area is fun. We found some of the galleries in old Town and also in some of the interesting shops on Central.

One Week is not enough. I’m sure we’ll visit again when we can spend more time.

comforts of home in Albuquerque's comfiest neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This Nob Hill residence, close to restaurants, downtown, and the airport (8 minutes!!!) offers local walking to shops, coffees, and restaurants as well as quick driving anywhere else. The house has everything for cooking at home, including courtyard BBQs, and is gorgeous. Morning sunlight floods the living spaces. Sit and read with your coffee or walk around the neighborhood. Carol and her family keep everything running tip top and are there when/if you need them. Furnishings are comfy and stylish, there is good art on the walls and flowers all around. The owners have put real thought and care into making this a happy space for anyone's Albuquerque stays.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Casa Carolina was wonderfully equipped and was in a perfect location to so many restaurants and activities. We stayed for Christmas and I was able to make a family dinner with all the kitchen accessories, pot & pans and serve ware that she has available. It was comfortable and Carol made it extra special by putting up a Christmas tree and decorations that gave us the warm holiday feel. We loved it there and would stay again in a heartbeat! Thanks so much for the hospitality! Because of the cold weather we struggled a bit with controlling the heat though. It seemed to be either too cold or too warm in some of the bedrooms - probably because of the large windows but otherwise a great place.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. After a couple weeks of motelling in the SW US, it was the ideal location to settle in for four nights and enjoy all the comforts it has to offer. The house is comfortable, lacking for nothing and decorated beautifully. The master bedroom is huge and comfortable and allowed us to finally unpack those suitcases for a few days, as well as utilize the laundry facilities. We were able to park the car and enjoy walking the neighbourhood to get to restaurants and any amenity we may have needed, it is a super location. Thanks Carol, you have a wonderful house and if anything, the descriptions don't do it justice as one needs to see it and stay to appreciate how comfortable it is.
