I am a landlord, an architect/designer, an artist. I love to travel. I was a virtual vagabond in my younger years, so I know how important a nice place is, as well as a good location. I usually travel simply and inexpensively, and I love B & B's! Some of my favorite stays have been at a B & B. I look for the unusual, quirky and 'off the beaten path' places to stay. My favorite destinations usually involve the ocean so I can swim or body surf. I love the arts, clean lines and simplicity. I enjoy doing mosaics, painting, building and working with clay. I also enjoy gardening. I am a hands on type of person. If I am a guest, I am curious, responsible and mind my own business. If I am hosting you, I will meet you at the door with the keys and be just a few minutes away if you need anything. I will help you out with what ever you need or anything you need to know about staying in Albuquerque. There is plenty to see in this area. My motto: Live & Let Live.
Catherine purchased this House in 2004
Why Catherine chose Nob Hill
The location of this property in Nob Hill is just the best. Easy access to everything, eclectic neighborhood near the university, close to shopping and all one needs to enjoy a visit to the Land of Enchantment. The home is comfortable and renovated while maintaining the characteristics of the 1940's Vintage home it was built as. Parks and cafes abound and transportation or walking is an easy option if you come w/out wheels.
What makes this House unique
Location, Location, Location!!! My Nob Hill Vintage 2 Bedroom is located so close to everything that most conveniences are within a short walk. Easy access to and from, by car, bus, train or plane is minutes away. The airport, train station, buses and the freeway are all reachable within a few minutes to 10 minutes. Restaurants, Shopping, Grocery stores, Pharmacies, Barber Shop, Dry Cleaners and Florist are a hop and a skip from the front door. 2 Parks are just a block or so away and an elementary school is a few blocks down the road with a nice playground. Museums and Oldtown are all a bus ride away or about 10 minutes. Apart from a great location, the house is very comfortable with a sweet patio and garden area which is nicely shaded in the afternoon and has morning sun. The house is 1940's vintage with modern and eclectic furnishings. The Owner is around for questions and any assistance needed during your stay. Enjoy the Land of Enchantment from an easy and comfortable location in the Heart of Nob Hill!!

The Spinelli family came over the holidays for a family visit. They were busy and only here in the mornings and evenings. They were friendly, communicative and followed all the house rules. I would not hesitate to recommend them to other hosts. Great guests.
Just what we needed!
Glad you had a good time here! Hope the rest of your trip was just as good!!
Tracey & her husband were coming to New Mexico for their 26th wedding anniversary and for the Balloon Fiesta. They arrived by train and Ubered everywhere. It was a pleasure to have them and they were great guests! They left the place picked up and were great with the User Info and backyard light! Would not hesitate in recommending them....Nice couple.
Quaint with local flavor
This property is a quaint adobe at the edge of Nob Hill. It is perfect for those who are environmentally minded and appreciate architectural history versus all new renovated. This place has beautiful mosaic counters, crank windows, and other original features. The place is clean and had two comfy queen beds. The owner and her dog are on site. She is attentive and communicative. Everything was ready for our arrival, even some snacks, coffee and cream - She asked!. A short walk down the street brings you to local restaurants and shops, or a few minutes drive to old town Albuquerque. It is also minutes from the Coronado Mall for shopping and the shuttles for the Balloon Fiesta. Had a wonderful and comfortable weekend.
Nice property, not the best option for families
The property itself was great and the interior is very clean and well appointed, with everything you may need. We are a family of 4, and the space was great for us. The location really is convenient for walking to Central, and there are open spaces and plenty of stores nearby. We were looking for a long term rental, but it just didn't work out for us as a family. Catherine now has a puppy, which prevents use of both the front and back yards, which we were looking forward to. Be sure to follow the rules exactly as stated in the user info packet, or you will be reprimanded by email. This includes doing more than the allowed 2-3 loads of laundry allowed per day, even if those loads include sheets and bath mats. We were also accused of stealing a dog's ball, a set of towels and some of the silverware. None of these was the case and it was cleared up with Catherine amicably, but it is not fun to be a grown adult and having someone count the silverware in front of you when you just finished cleaning the house for checkout. Realize that this property is a duplex with a shared laundry area, thin floors, and decent sound sensitivity between the units. Overall I think this house is a great location for people visiting for a short period who will be out of the house during the day. I would not recommend it for families looking for a temporary but longer term base in New Mexico (2 or more weeks).
Pleasant, quaint and quiet
I had a very nice time staying at this house. I love the style and furnishings are all fitting for the era this house was built. Everything was super clean and very close to everywhere I needed to be. So many stores and restaurants to check out in Nob Hill. I highly recommend this place to anyone.
