Property description

Rates are for single occupancy. Please note that the HomeAway automatically-quoted rates may in fact be lower if you are considering a longer stay. We have a tiered rate system based on length of stay that the system does not recognize. Please inquire!

March, 2014: Have just installed a new, HD flat-screen TV with free Netflix streaming for our guests.

Walk to Old Town (one-half mile) or Downtown (one mile). La Casita is a self-contained, 580 sq. ft., 100-year-old cottage with full kitchen and bath, along with several unique outdoor seating areas, one of which has a small goldfish pond.

Furnished with family heirlooms and German flea market finds, you will feel instantly at home in this cozy cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped and guests are provided with a complimentary supply of regular and decaf organic coffee, a variety of teas and filtered water.

The bedroom has a double bed, while the sleeper love seat in the living room provides for a third person (child or small adult).

Our short-term guests are provided with every-other-day cleaning and towel change, while a thorough weekly cleaning and linen change are included for parties staying for longer periods.


Green Features: La Casita recycles and composts. Compact fluorescents throughout. Drip-irrigated landscaping. Owners in house next door have large solar array. Rain water harvesting.

Bicycle rental shop 1/2 mile away in Old Town.

If the option of walking to some of Albuquerque's premier attractions appeals to you, then this self-contained cottage may be what you're looking for. A 10-minute-stroll takes you to Old Town with its plaza and shopping opportunities as well as to adjacent museums. Another 10 minutes' walk and you're at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens and Aquarium. Fast walkers can be at the Albuquerque Convention Center near historic Central Avenue/Route 66 in 20 minutes. Do you like the idea of staying in your own little house and enjoying your morning coffee or tea in the privacy of your kitchen or outdoor patio? Does sitting at a sheltered little goldfish pond just outside your bedroom window sound sound relaxing? Would you like the option of preparing your own meals at home? Do you like to have art gracing the walls of your lodging? La Casita may be just what you're looking for.
