Property description

Welcome to Casa La Huerta! This authentic, Northern New Mexico-style adobe home hosts guests in the residential Rio Grande district of Albuquerque’s North Valley. Leave the car behind and walk to local favorites like Flying Star Café – an eclectic eatery with something for everyone.

Enjoy outdoor spaces at the front and back Casa La Huerta, overseeing 1/3 of an acre with native landscaping and scented by sunflowers, lavender, and our small fruit orchard. When they’re in season, feel free to step outside and pick fresh fruit from the trees!

Interstate freeway access is quick and easy here. Enjoy a quiet neighborhood that’s nevertheless conveniently located to many attractions of greater Albuquerque.

Walking paths, orchards, lavender fields, wine vineyards, open spaces, and horseback riding await you. Don’t forget to bring your bikes or hiking shoes: This area is a cyclists and walkers’ paradise!

AUTHENTIC ACCOMMODATIONS + LOCAL CONNECTIONS

Now it presents a great combination of authentic, vintage, and modern with wood/brick floors, talavera tile in the kitchen and bath, heated bathroom flooring, and a retro-style Wedgewood range in the kitchen. Ideal for couples, couples with young children, and friend trips.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Michael manages this vacation rental. He’s an Albuquerque native who lives less than one mile from the property, and he’s dedicated to making your stay hassle-free and memorable. Talk to him for his local knowledge about nearby cultural sites, markets, shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Why Los Griegos, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
At its heart is Old Town, just minutes from Casa La Huerta, the site where the original city was founded in 1706. Cobblestone streets and adobe walls characterize this neighborhood where Native American and Spanish cultures still mingle. You'll also find a certain level of kitsch, deposited from the hey-day of US Route 66 that runs through the heart of town. The downtown area's décor consists of neon signs and funky souvenir shops. Head farther out and you'll find expansive homes and lush vineyards in the North Valley, where Casa La Huerta is located, and Cottonwood Heights. Albuquerque stays true to its roots. Hispanic flavors can be found in many of the city's restaurants (prepare for the ear-popping heat of New Mexico's favorite ingredient, the chile pepper). Native American arts and crafts adorn many a gallery window. But despite its old age—the city celebrated its 300th birthday in 2006—Albuquerque is nothing short of cosmopolitan, boasting funky boutiques, top-notch performance venues and exciting nightlife. To top it all off, the city's proximity to the stunning Sandia Mountains makes it a great home base for Southwest discovery.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa La Huerta was originally constructed in the late 1890's and was enlarged to its current configuration in the 1930's. It is therefore not configured like a modern home or hotel. It has abundant character and charm reflective of New Mexico, and is very much a historic showcase of what a modest family home in New Mexico was like in the late 1800's. This is what our guests rave about and enjoy, and what makes Casa La Huerta a special place and a very successful vacation rental. We take pride in delivering to our guests a very clean, sanitary, safe, functional, well maintained and comfortable residence for our guests enjoyment that represents great value for money.
