Why Mr. Michael Aragon chose Los Griegos
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.
What makes this House unique
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 a clean, sanitary, safe, functional, well maintained and comfortable vacation residence that represents an unbeatable value for money.

What an absolutely amazing property!!!
This place was beyond my expectations. Comfortable, expansive, well equipped, convenient location, beautiful!!! And, what an incredible deal. Michael was accommodating and helpful. I can't recommend this place enough. We'll definitely be returning. Whether you are new to VRBO or a frequent quest, you'll love this place.
Visitors from Ohio
We recently enjoyed a 3-day stay here. This is the second time we have stayed at Casa La Huerta. The house and grounds around it are very well kept. Check-in and check-out was easy. We enjoy the quiet neighborhood. It is within walking distance to a coffee shop and the Nature Center where there is a nice walking trail along the Rio Grande. We did rent a car to visit other areas around the city. There are many excellent restaurants in this area know as the North Valley. We hope to visit New Mexico again and we would definitely stay here again.
What a wonderful piece of Albuquerque this property is. Casa Huerta is comfortable and perfectly located. Micheal is pleasant and knowledgeable as he greets and orients his guests.
Absolutely perfect vacation rental!!!
This was my first stay at a VRBO rental and it could not have been better. I arrived after midnight but had been given perfect instructions on how to enter the property. The property is perfectly maintained and had every possible amenity. I immediately felt right at home. It is centrally located in a very quiet neighborhood. My only disappointment is that I couldn't stay longer. I live in Boston and this stay inspired me to spend more time in Albuquerque....at Casa La Huerta!
Lovely grounds, easy stay, well located.
I especially enjoyed using the kitchen. Gas powered stoves a practical and cozy touch. Outdoor seating areas nice. Clean and well lit.
Great place to stay and very nice and clean.
Great place to stay near lots of the things we wanted to access. Close to both 40 and 25. Near the Rio Grande river. The home itself reminded me of a mini compound. I felt very safe, and had lots of privacy. The home was very clean and we had a great time in ABQ being there. We did make a couple of dinners there and it had everything we needed. The only thing wrong was that we stayed in December and didn't really get a chance to take advantage of the beautiful yard and outdoor areas. Hopefully, I'll be back again at a more opportune time.
This property is located a short 7 min. drive from Historic Old Town Albuquerque, 1.3 miles from the Rio Grande Nature State Park, and 7.5 miles from Albuquerque's Balloon Fiesta Park. Situated right in the heart of of Albuquerque's green belt, the verdant North Valley. A short (2 mile) drive to Interstate 40 and you're quickly and conveniently on your way to visit all Albuquerque and the Land of Enchantment has to offer. Petroglyph Monument, local wineries, Los Ranchos Village Market, and charming Corrales village are all within easy reach. Take a short walk or one minute drive to the Flying Star Cafe on Rio Grande Blvd. for coffee as well as a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. Walking paths, orchards, lavender fields, vineyards, open spaces, and horseback riding await you. This area is a cyclists and walkers paradise. Don't forget to bring your bikes or your hiking shoes!
