Owner is a descendant of the Albuquerque 1706 founding families. A respected professional with the Albuquerque Public Schools
Pauline purchased this House in 1900
Why Pauline chose West Old Town
My vision, as an owner, has been to provide out-of-towners with a property that reflects the history of Albuquerque and New Mexico and is just minutes away from a tremendous amount of important and historic sites, including museums, parks, shops, US Hwy 66 and more!
What makes this House unique
Sitting in the heart of the city,the oldest neighborhood (unplanned), historic, zoned agriculture/ mixed. This property's location makes a family vacation or a business trip convenient, accessible, enjoyable and memorable, just steps away from city transportation, or numerous area activities. Only 1 mile from the Convention Center, and 3 miles from UNM. Easy bus transportation to the Airport 5 miles away. For a daily dose of Albuquerque pictures (as well as local commentary), see the Duke City Fix web site. Photos are posted on the Albuquerque Photo Gallery near the top of the DCF home page. People post new ones daily, and there are often spectacular shots of the Albuquerque scenery.

Felt like I was home again, wonderful.
Lovely, homey domicile. Spent time with siblings I hadn't seen in years and we all thought we were kids again! Love the "Land of Enchantment". Thank you Pauline!
It was a treat to communicate with such a positive, brightly spirited person. So happy you enjoyed and all went well on your visit back. Hope you return soon. You left the home in great order....All best wishes for a FUN summer! Pauline
Great Location, great price
This is my 1st experience with a vacation rental. I booked this house for 4 people. There was ample space. The location was great, if gives people a good insight into southwest living. Only 2 cons 1. No Wi-Fi or internet, I should have asked before booking and 2. The owner walked in the front unannounced, without knocking on the last night. That was creepy--she did apologize. The cons are the reason for 3 stars.
Great location with ample room Owner error, I forgot tenant stayed Sunday nite, & as I dove by home front entry gate was open, no vehicles so made quick stop & I was very surprised when I put hand on door knob , door opened, so I quickly apologized (embarrassed) & left Please Excuse this error/mistake.
The house was just what we wanted.
Our stay at Pauline's house was wonderful! It was in a perfect location for our day trip adventures and we had fun on the patio outside, enjoying the the beautiful weather. I highly recommend this place for a family vacation.
These guests were great! They left the home in organized manner, and commented they very much enjoyed the stay. Hoping the will return in the near future. Thank you. Pauline
Great home away
Everything you need, and more. Clean and comfortable. Great host. Perfect for large casual groups. We’ll be back.
Guests expressed their enjoyment and appreciation of the clean and well located old town home. They left the home in good order. Indeed, I look forward to their return. Thanks for your stay! Pauline
Nice and clean but small
These guests did not report they brought large dog(s) with them, so in a 3 bedroom 2 bath home makes for less space, when adding animals to stay. Owner permission is required,( so to determine if an extra cost will be required and/or reasonable space is available for size dog(s)). With this large family, in Winter, dogs would not have been reasonable. Their animal clean up has been an additional cost to owner.
Great location; within walking distance to Old Town. Comfortable accommodations.
The house has everything necessary for an extended stay. Although we didn't cook there, the kitchen was well supplied. Beds were comfortable, and there seemed to be enough hot water and water pressure. We were there in the winter, and the heater worked fine. Overall, it was a good stay.
Excellent Guests were here for Christmas Season, and indicated they hoped to be back in the future if the opportunity occurs. Home was left in order and well kept. Appreciate their comments, and stay. Best Wishes for a great 2018! Pauline
