Great couple getaway spot!
Suite was clean comfortable and inviting. Wendy was very friendly and accommodating. My only regret was being too busy seeing the sites to enjoy the pool! The location was very convenient, Target and Smiths groceries were less then a 10 minute walk away.
Thanks, Scott. I, too, wish you had a chance to enjoy the pool, but maybe on your next visit. I'm glad you were able to have your friends over and enjoy sitting by the pool, at least! You were great guests and I appreciate your leaving the apartment so clean.
I had made the reservation for my daughters and myself. It is a great location (and safe) and with the afternoon heat, it was perfect pool time. I am hoping to book again next summer.
Sarah, thank you for the review. It was so great meeting you and your family. Your daughters were so loving and the older one gave me a hug when leaving Friday...touched my heart. Thanks for leaving the apartment so clean. Please do come back next summer. I'd like that.
Peaceful and thoughtful
This is a lovely and quiet apartment with private entrance and a pool in the backyard set it in neighborhood convenient to shopping, the foothills and a good walking trail. The host was helpful, responsive and unobtrusive. Very relaxing!
Thank you, Melanie.
Quiet, comfortable, convenient.
This property was perfect for our hectic visit to Albuquerque. It was centrally located to everything we planned to do. It was a quiet neighborhood with good locations to walk. We were able to relax in the evening in the swimming pool. Our hostess was interested in making our stay as positive as possible. We will stay here again.
Thank you, Carol. Enjoyed having you as guests. Thanks for leaving the apartment so clean. Hope to have you visit again.
Very comfortable and quiet.
This property is very nice and comfortable. The owner was very nice. I recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Albuquerque area.
