About Richard

THANK YOU for visiting my listing #339304. I hope Casa De Siesta LLC fits your needs, and that we can soon meet in person!

My name is Richard and I am a Native New Mexican. My heart's desire is to offer an affordable, safe, and clean rental. And that's what I have achieved! My Casita is 980sqt. of beautiful and comfortable living space created and staged perfectly for you my guests. I live in the front home, on the property, so I am available to assist you if needed, but always respecting your privacy!

Look no further you have found a wonderful place to stay when visiting Albuquerque or New Mexico...

I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 25 years and I am an award winning Chef and operated my own catering business for over 12 years. Along with managing the Vacation Home, I also have dealt in Antiques and Collectibles.

My hearts passion is seeing that my guest(s) feel like family and are comfortable in their new surroundings.

Being that I personally manage and live on the property, I am only steps away or a phone call away if you need anything. My family has lived in Albuquerque for many generations, and my ancestry is from Spain and France,

(of royal descent!), or so they say! (ha, ha).

As you will experience, Albuquerque and New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, is a very special place to visit and live. Our weather is almost perfect, most of the time, with the most beautiful sunsets and mountains. A great asset for you the visitor is that I am very familiar with the city & surrounding areas and am always eager to share ideas and historical information!

Why Richard chose Albuquerque

LOCATION IS PERFECT! As you will experience for yourself, the reason why I live in the Historic Downtown District is because it is truly a WONDERFUL PLACE TO LIVE! I enjoy all the rich culture and the diversity of the residents, the homes each with their own personality, nothing like cookie-cutter homes, a beautiful kaleidoscope of Heritage and ethnic flavor. My home is centrally located to most everything. The two freeways I-25 and I-40 are just a few miles from my door step. The Albuquerque International Sunport Airport is a mere 5.5 miles/10 min. drive as well.

One big reason I love the Downtown Area is because of it's charm and beautiful architectural designs of the homes and buildings: a combination of Victorian and Southwestern styles. This area is much more settled then most other parts of Albuquerque, the trees are larger and most foliage is settled and grows beautifully in the Spring and just shows off during the Summer days! On Weekends the Downtown area is very calm and quiet being that all the workers leave for the weekend. It becomes your own little quiet getaway away from the hustle and bustle of daily work. And I extend a personal invitation for you and your loved one(s) to experience first hand!

What makes this house unique

I choose to walk daily for exercise, and the Downtown Historic District is VERY WALK-FRIENDLY and close to many tourist attractions. A few blocks West of the Casa is Lowes Corner Market a neighborhood grocery store, a full-service and self-service Laundromat blocks away. A Pizza Hut is just across the main street of the Casa as well as Fusion Latin Restaurant a local favorite featured on HGTV.

A bank and Subway Restaurant about 2 blocks East just a short walk away. Old Town and Route 66 is a 3 min drive, or a 15 min. walk away! It only takes about 25 min. to get to the base of the Sandia Mountains where you will be blown away by the vast beauty of our clear skys and outstanding unobstructed views, and Santa Fe is only a 45 min. ride. A beautiful and magical city our State Capital. Can take Turquoise trail and go through Madrid, an old mining town, where "Wild Hogs" the movie was filmed.

Excellent stay, perfect for our weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa De Siesta De Aragon was a perfect fit for our weekend in Albuquerque. Richard is a wonderful host and gave us a tour of the property that explained all we needed to know. The Casa is well-appointed, fully equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. We had a conference downtown and were able to walk to the Convention Center each day. Groceries were available two blocks away and multiple restaurants within a ten minute drive. Lilacs and iris were in bloom in the courtyard so evenings were a delight. We will be staying again when we are in Albuquerque. Thanks Richard for a wonderful weekend!

Comfort, location and great hospitality!!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't recommend the Casita de Aragon highly enough! Upon our arrival at the airport, we called Richard and received detailed directions for finding the place. It truly is just a short drive. He greeted us at the gate and gave us a complete tour of the place and its amenities. It was clean, cozy, and had everything you could need and more. Richard has clearly given a great deal of attention to supplying his guests with all of the amenities. He also was an excellent resource in helping us decide what to do during our stay. We were totally new to the area and found his recommendations for restaurants, sights to visit, and how to get there to be spot on! Plus, after meeting Richard, we decided to book him for an evening cooking class. We had so much fun learning to make the red chili sauce that is part of so much of the New Mexican cuisine. Richard himself is a charming and gracious man, keys to being an excellent host. We would definitely stay at the casita again and will happily recommend it to friends.

Delicious Bliss

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I was greeted at the airport, until the time I tearfully left, I was wrapped up in nothing but comfort & love.

This was the first time I had booked a vacation JUST for ME. Richard knew exactly what I needed, when I needed it. The casita itself was PERFECT. I slept(a lot) like a baby. The kitchen was PERFECT. I was able to cook & invite a few close friends over to enjoy 'My' Casita. I think I left the property 3 times.

My only regret is that I forgot to write in the Guest Book(Denial I was leaving). I have renamed it the Friend Book. He will be getting a letter to put in SOON.

When I got home, I hit the ground running--2 medical procedures in two days plus work. Richard's Casita de Sueno was how I was able to get thru it with a calm & happy face & heart.

Thank you Richard☮❤️🙏🏽💃🏽😎💯💯💯💯💯💯

Great location, very clean and secure.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Richard for taking the time to go over all the extras that go along with your Casita, it felt like home. It was so well stocked with everything you could think of or need. The location was perfect , 15 min walk to old town or 15 min walk to downtown Albuquerque. Very central and easy to access the two main highways. Lots of information and maps available. The bed was great the Casita was extremely clean and we felt very safe and secure. It was a great holiday and we hope to return someday. Thanks
