Casa de Paz - Reduced rates during July

Our charming 2-story townhome, built in the mid-1970s, has been completely updated. All rooms are colorful, comfortable, and artistically appointed with Southwestern art. The master bedroom features a brand new King-size bed, 2 bedside tables with reading lamps, an antique dresser with mirror, and two double closets. Our new pine headboard with marble stone insets was handmade in Mexico, and our new bedspread was hand woven in the Zapotec village, Teotitlan del Valle, in the Mexican state Oaxaca. The middle bedroom has a Queen-size bed, bedside table, wall mounted reading light, and a spacious closet. The third bedroom contains twin beds, bedside table, wall-mounted reading lights, an antique dresser, and a large closet. Additional towels, linens, and blankets are available in each bedroom closet. There is an iron and ironing board in the master bedroom closet, and each bedroom closet contains a luggage stand.

The living room has a Southwestern couch, microsuede recliner, brown fabric love seat, 32-inch TV with cable, DVD player, WiFi, and a bookcase with books, puzzles, and games. The well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar with three stools and is open to the dining room which has a dining table that will seat 6, a love seat, a corner computer desk, a side table with a radio & cassette/CD player and music CDs. The dining room’s sliding glass door opens to our private patio that is completely enclosed and partially covered. The patio has a table with umbrella, 8 chairs, wicker love seat, BBQ grill (charcoal & starter fluid provided), flagstone flooring, a high adobe wall and wood fence, and a seating banco. There are a washer and dryer next to the kitchen. The home has one full-bathroom and one half-bath. The full bathroom is upstairs by the 3 bedrooms and has a tub/shower combo. Both bathrooms are spotlessly clean! The home has refrigerated air conditioning and forced air heating controlled by a thermostat, and each bedroom has an additional fan. We have parking for two vehicles in the driveway & carport and additional parking is nearby.

Free WiFi reaches throughout the townhouse.

We are located on the west side of Albuquerque with quick access to I-40. We are close to the Petroglyph National Monument Visitor’s Center (1.5 miles), Ladera Golf Course (1.3 miles) and only a short drive to Old Town (4 miles), many museums (4 within 4 miles), Cottonwood Mall (6.5 miles), the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park (5 miles), the Rio Grande (access to the river & bosque is close by), Open Space Visitor Center (4 miles), Botanic Garden & Aquarium (4.5), Rio Grande Zoo (5.5), walking trails, theaters, and restaurants.

About Owner/Manager Charly Bullock

I am a retired educator. I have been married to Cathy, also an educator, for 47 years. We have two sons and many grandchildren. We enjoy traveling, hiking, bicycling, reading, writing, crossword puzzles, and spending time with our family. Our 18-year-old granddaughter lives with us. I grew up in Oklahoma (elementary school years) and Colorado. Cathy grew up in Colorado. We met and married at Colorado State University. Cathy and I moved to New Mexico in 1974 and we love living in Albuquerque. I take the main responsibility for our townhouse, but Cathy happily pitches in when needed. We live near the townhouse and are always available to help with planning your time in Albuquerque.

Why Owner/Manager Charly Bullock chose Albuquerque

We love Albuquerque because of the great quality of life here. We are conveniently located on the westside of Albuquerque near the intersection of I-40 and Coors Blvd allowing quick and easy access to ABQ's many wonderful attractions. We are only minutes away from the Petroglyph National Monument Visitor’s Center (1.5 miles) and its many hiking trails, Ladera Golf Course (1.3 mi), Old Town (4 mi), many museums (3 within 4 mi), the Botanic Gardens & Aquarium (4.5 mi), Rio Grande Zoo (5.5 mi), the Rio Grande Nature Center (5.5 mi), Open Space Visitor Center (4 mi), city parks, multi-use trails in the bosque paralleling the Rio Grande, Pueblo Indian Cultural Center (4.5), Cottonwood Mall (6.5 miles), theaters, balloon rides, great restaurants, and so many other great attractions. Our location offers easy access to our diverse cultures, history, art, architecture, food, concerts & live theater productions, outdoor activities, and our outstanding university.

What makes this townhome unique

Our adobe-walled, private patio is the place to begin your day with a cup of coffee or tea, and then it's the place to relax with your favorite beverage after your day of sightseeing and exploring. Huffington Post calls Albuquerque "one of America's Five Secretly Cool Cities," offering authentic southwest culture by the bucketful, seemingly endless number of multi-use trails, an inexpensive gondola ride to the peak of Sandia Mountain, and, of course, our artisanal green chile cheeseburgers. Add in the region's unique multicultural heritage (think architecture, a ton of good food, festivals, local traditions, and so many wonderful people!) and you've got a city that's not staying under the radar forever. Many publications have ranked Albuquerque as one of America's top travel destinations.

WalletHub rates Albuquerque as one of the top sites for Perfect Summer Getaways. Today's Parent says ABQ is one of the best destinations for Springtime Family Travel. Travel+Leisure and Groupon say that we are one of the friendliest cities in America. Travel+Leisure also picked ABQ as one of the most charming cities to visit. USA Today says that we are one of the most Wildlife Friendly cities. ABQ is on Outside Magazine’s list of the 10 Best Big Cities for Active Families. And the Travel Channel places our Botanic Garden in the top 5 in the country. So come and enjoy the many wonderful virtues of our city!

Unforgettable stay at Casa de Paz!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Paz is not only a lovely abode but even more the owners, Charly and Cathy, do absolutely everything to make your stay the most comfortable and enjoyable possible! I rented this property because of all of the positive reviews and let me tell you that they were ALL correct! Charly had print outs for us on all of the activities in which I had expressed interest. He had tickets for us for the Luminaria Tour and even went so far as letting us following him to the event and we truly enjoyed talking with he and Cathy and getting to know their family. The thoughtful touches throughout the house made our stay easier. The fridge was stocked with breakfast items and our girls loved having cereal and snacks provided! The location was perfect to get to all of our sightseeing activities! All I can say is that you will not regret it if you rent Casa de Paz!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Gail, for your wonderful review. Cathy and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Casa de Paz. You and your family certainly packed a lot into your visit to Albuquerque: Sandia Peak Tram, Old Town, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Luminaria Tour, Petroglyph National Monument, and even a day visit to Santa Fe! We are happy that your daughters fulfilled their wish of playing in the snow atop Sandia Peak. Thank you for laundering all the towels - we don't expect that since we want our guests to relax during their vacation, though we are most appreciative. Thanks also for the delicious empanadas. We hope that your daughters enjoyed the visit to the UFO Museum during your long trip back home. We were pleased that we met you and your wonderful family!

Casa De Paz

  • 5 of 5

We have two family members attending UNM. We came from opposite corners of New Mexico to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner. Our hosts had the table set with very festive seasonal decorations. They also left snacks and water which we really appreciated. The kitchen work space was a little small, but had great access to the dining and made for a great visit. Our hosts were very prompt in response to e-mail, left great notes about the property, information about the area and were very easy to deal with. Thank you for making our family visit so nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, Fran. We are pleased that Casa de Paz worked as a convenient Thanksgiving meeting place for your family arriving from 3 parts of our state. We hope that you will keep our townhouse in mind for any future trips to Albuquerque.

HAVEN'T FOUND A BETTER RENTAL IN THE 7 YEARS WE'VE USED HOMEAWAY

  • 5 of 5

WE 5 SENIORS FROM NY, NJ AND MD WERE SO COMFORTABLE AT CASA DE PAZ.

CHARLEY'S HOSPITALITY WAS OUTSTANDING.

THE TOWNHOUSE WAS SPOTLESSLY CLEAN AND WELL SUPPLIED KITCHEN AND EVERYWHERE ELSE.

ENJOYED THE OUTDOOR AREA OFF OF THE DINING ROOM.

WE WERE CLOSE TO THE PUEBLO INDIAN CULTURAL CENTER, OLD TOWN AND THE NEW MEXICO ART AND HISTORY MUSEUM, MAISELS (WHERE WE SHOPPED DOWNTOWN FOR JEWELRY, FETISHES, ETC...HOLIDAY GIFTS IN ADVANCE) AND THE BLUE SLATE CAFE.

RECOMMEND STAYING AT THIS CAREFULLY APPOINTED TOWNHOUSE.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, Thanks to the five of you for being our guests at Casa de Paz. You were tremendously thoughtful in leaving the townhouse just as clean as you found it. That consideration certainly makes our job of preparing the townhouse for our next guests much easier. Thanks also for selecting Casa de Paz as your headquarters while visiting Albuquerque following your stay in Santa Fe. We are pleased that you found our location convenient for your visits to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Old Town's Museum of Art & History, Skip Maisel’s downtown store, and the Slate Street Café. I’m glad that I was able to meet three of you. I hope all five of you had safe journeys back to your homes. Please keep Casa de Paz in mind if you ever return to Albuquerque. Thanks again. Charly

We are located near the intersection of I-40 and Coors Blvd. We like this location because of the quick and easy access to so many wonderful attractions. We are only minutes away from the Petroglyph National Monument, Old Town, many museums, the Botanic Gardens and Zoo, parks, Ladera Golf Course, hiking trails in the bosque paralleling the Rio Grande, Pueblo Indian Cultural Center, shopping, balloon rides, great restaurants, and so many other great attractions.

We love Albuquerque because of the great quality of life including New Mexico's diverse cultures, life styles, history, art, architecture, food, dance, theaters, outdoor activities, and our outstanding university.

Huffington Post calls Albuquerque one of America's "Five Secretly Cool Cities." ABQ offers authentic Southwest culture by the bucketful and is wildly underrated as a destination for lovers of the great outdoors. Noteworthy microbreweries like Marble and La Cumbre are the place to be once work is done. And let's not forget the seemingly endless number of multi-use trails, the cheap gondola rides to epic, high-elevation hiking, or the artisanal green chile cheeseburgers. Add in the region's unique multicultural heritage (think architecture, think a ton of good food, festivals, local traditions) and you've got a city that's not staying under the radar forever.
