VRBO Bear stayed here:
We were so pleased to pull into this quiet, gated community in Southwest Albuquerque and found that the house was just around the corner from the entrance - it was so inviting! We walked through the lovely front garden, and into the entrance, finding it perfectly air-conditioned, which as a furry bear is quite important. The spacious living room with gas fireplace, comfy couches, and a well-stocked bookshelf (including DVDs) were just what we needed to relax before heading out on our adventures. We hiked the Sandia Mountains, took the train to Santa Fe, visited our bear family in Los Lunas, and took in the general loveliness that characterizes New Mexico. Each night, we enjoyed the evening air out on the back patio. We felt like we were in our own backyard oasis getaway with plenty of privacy. We were delighted by the oversized garage for the car as well. I highly recommend making this casita your home base next time you’re in Albuquerque.The VRBO Bear

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: The owners, Kim and Wayne, moved to Albuquerque for graduate school at UNM and fell in love with the Southwest. They built the house when their boys, Forrest and Walker, were little. Kim decorated it with furniture, handicrafts and art from their travels throughout Latin America. Wayne's job moved them away from Albuquerque, but they kept the house and hope to return to live there one day. Forrest and Walker also attended UNM. Walker is now in the Army and Forrest is working full-time. The Land of Enchantment has captured our hearts.
Why the Owner Chose Encanto Village Hoa, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
This house is perfectly situated with easy access to I-40. The owners invested in this part of town because they enjoyed the appeal of living in the southwestern quadrant of Albuquerque. The house is close to Old Town and there are a lot of nearby attractions for children including the world-class zoo, the aquarium and biopark, the Children's Museum, and the Museum of Natural History. There are also some fantastic New Mexican restaurants nearby.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Because we built the home using a custom builder, we were able to add some special features. From the moment you enter the hand-carved front gate in the courtyard to the carved posts on the pergola on the back patio, you will notice the special details of this house. All of the furnishings have a unique history and many were made by Mexican artisans. In the fall, the smell of roasted green chile fills the air and the home is perfectly situated to enjoy the sights of the Sandia Mountains. Don't be surpised to see a hot air balloon fly directly over the house.
