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.

Location was convenient . Had enough beds for our needs and clean.
No WiFi. They say there is WiFi with a password but never worked.
Not really conducive to just hanging out with family.
Enjoyed our trip though - enjoyed Albuquerque, Santa Fe and surrounding areas.
A large number of adults, does impact space, as it impacted this visit in cold winter weather. The large covered patio area in better weather is a plus for all group sizes. A mix of adults and smaller children inside home, works fine. Unfortunate that WiFi by AT&T didn't work, I even have a booster in living area since walls are adobe...Will check with AT&T on this. Appreciate the guests, all left in good order. Pauline
Comfortable and clean
Great location close to Old Town !!
Enjoyed hosting quiet guests who left home in clean and good order! Thank you for your stay! Pauline
Cozy, easy access, perfect location
This was the perfect location for our family celebration weekend. We were able to comfortably sleep nine people (seven adults and two children). The home was fully stocked with dishes, cooking ware, pretty much anything you could need.
There isn't WIFI in the home (although you can sign up for a pass through XFinity) but there is a Starbucks just a couple of blocks away.
The home is very conveniently located to Old Town which is great for people who are visiting Albuquerque for the first time.
Overall we had a great time!
Dear the WASSON's,,,thank you so much for your stay! I appreciated your feedback also, it was very helpful. I hope you will return in the future. Also, your written response was most generous and thoughtful. Very much appreciate your kindnesses. Always BEST REGARDS. Pauline
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
