About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

I love this property and live right next door.

Museums for all the family within walking distance. This is a great place for an extended stay or just for that romantic weekend getaway!

About Robert Devine

I'm from the UK originally and moved to Albuquerque in 2002 to complete my pilot training. I immediately fell in love with the mountains, the scenery, the sunsets and the incredible views. I hope to succeed in sharing my love of New Mexico by making this property available for vacationers. I am also a realtor in case you are relocating and need some assistance.

Robert Devine purchased this house in 2011

Why Robert Devine chose Albuquerque

Old Town has an exceptional atmosphere. The authenticity of the buildings, the rustic Mexican feel, give it that very soothing and relaxing atmosphere. To add to this the property itself is a unique compound, designed to resemble a small Mexican village.

What makes this house unique

I love this property and live right next door. The pool is relaxing, the access is super easy and it's a 2 min walk to my favorite spots, such as Season's Restaurant, St Clair Winery and the Old Town Plaza.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We departed around 11AM today (Monday) and wanted to let you know we were totally pleased with the stay. It was everything you said plus more. Everyone with us enjoyed the Old Town area, the people, the history, the shops, etc. We most ate our meals out, but did a few "in-house" leaving behind about 5 or 6 beers, a few chips, and a bowl full of condiment packages which your follow-on renters might find useful. I think we emptied all the trash into the dumpster,but left the beds un-made since we

Great house, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered here for vacation and the house is very comfortable. The kids also really enjoyed the pool so it was a nice place to relax. A few minutes walk from Old Town Plaza, a short drive from the river, the location is great. We also caught a show at Casa Flamenca which is just around the corner. Would return to stay here again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this casita. It had almost everything we needed (no shampoo, conditioner or bath soaps however - just fyi to bring your own). They do provide plenty of linens, pool towels, etc.

It was large living space and very comfortable. Wi-fi worked great. We used the hot tub several times and it was clean and hot! The pool looked inviting, but didn't have time to get in it. The location is perfect for Old Town sight seeing. You can walk anywhere in the area. It's an older home - hence a few quirks but that is the charm of it. Parking was good for 3 vehicles. A/C worked well and a fully equipped kitchen was perfect.

To Robert - it might be good to update the info on the site, like the coffee pot. We brought Keurig and then you didn't have one as mentioned. Also, you said there was a lock box, but didn't tell us where it was initially so we couldn't find it at first. Also, updating the wifi info in your house description might be helpful (new wifi name)....but besides that it was great!

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

The property was very spacious and clean. Plenty of room for children to roam around in. We had a little trouble getting the TV's to work, but that worked itself out. The BBQ didn't heat up properly and we had to use the broiler setting on the oven (but no broiler pan, just a piece of foil) and a frying pan to get our hamburgers done, but must say they were delicious when finished. We didn't contact owner on grill, because it was getting late and didn't want to wait any longer, but feel that he would have taken care of it had we done so. Very easy property to get to and centrally located. We were very pleased with our stay and would stay there again.
