Why Samuel Padilla chose Albuquerque

This property was originally purchased because of the outstanding views and privacy that came along with the spacious acre. It has been passed down a generation and well loved by the family who still has ownership of this property.

What makes this house unique

This property was completely remodeled in 2013-1014. Everything was replaced including windows, doors, heating and cooling, electric, plumbing, flooring, fixtures, countertops, and all appliances. With this remodel the house has a modern southwestern style with grand entryway complete with floor to ceiling water feature commissioned from an award winning artist. Additionally this remodel opened up the space and allowed two extra bedrooms and one bath to be added into the previous spacious floor plan. The highest quality appliances and finishes were chosen for this house and no detail overlooked. This home comes complete with outdoor living and a built in Fire Master Grill, gas fireplace, and outdoor dinning table. The upstairs living area comes complete with a 70" TV and state of the art surround sound including exterior speakers in the outdoor living space. Large game room with beautiful barn style door includes two large flat screen TVs, seating area, a full bathroom, and luxurious Tempurpedic pull out queen sized mattress.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's gorgeous. You could easily put up cast here. The interior design looks like it's out of a magazine, and there's a HUGE master bedroom with an enormous walk in closet and a master bathroom with a jacuzzi. There's an outdoor grille, a built-in espresso machine in the kitchen wall, and it's against a mountain.

Second Stay as Good as the First!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat customers at the property and find it to be one of the most enchanting homes we've used from VRBO. This spacious home nestled at the foothills of the Sandia Mountains provides stunning views from every location in the home. The amenities in the property are top notch - owners spared no expense in creating a comfortable and clean living environment. We'll stay here again and again! Owners were easy to contact and respond quickly to any stated need -- thanks for making this beautiful home available to all of us.

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

As a former Albuquerque native, I knew the neighborhood and the area adjacent to Sandia Mountain. Hiking trails are close by -- yet restaurants and groceries are only 15 minutes away. We chose the house for a Thanksgiving family reunion which required being able to cook dinner and host 12. The house was perfect--a huge modern kitchen with 2 sinks and 2 dishwashers --well suited for our activity. The kitchen is also fully equipped with plenty of dishes, pots and pans etc. Gorgeous views and peace and quiet as advertised.

The house is beautiful and very clean, very well kept. Plenty of room to enjoy a small wedding, and you couldn't ask for a more beautiful view.

Lovely home but needs an instruction manual or concierge

  • 3 of 5

The home is lovely...spacious and well decorated. But there were a number of things we could not get to work...there was no welcome book with instructions and it took 4 days for the owners to stop in to help us.

We washed dishes by hand (for 8 people) until the fourth day of our stay. The owners stopped in on the fourth day and told us the drawer dish washers require a remote control to operate. They could not get the large dish washer to work either so we continued to wash pots by hand our entire stay.

During this same visit the built in coffee maker was demonstrated but with no mention of changing a filter. The next time we tried to use it, it insisted it needed a new filter which we had no idea how to change. Luckily there is a drip coffee maker we continued to use.

We were also told there is a circuit breaker for the steam shower.

It took us two days to get three of the many televisions to operate properly. There were a number of remotes laying by the set in the family room...why not remove the ones that are not needed? We gave up on most of the bedroom sets.

The router for the wifi had to be rebooted anytime it was needed. Granted this home is up in the mountains but if rebooting makes it work it appears to me more than distance is a problem

The downstairs areas needed a thorough vacuuming. There was a large amount of hair (pets not allowed?) in the bedroom and hallway rugs. There were 5 small washers laying in front of the night stand in the master. The trash can under the master sink was full when we arrived.

We learned when trash collection was when the neighbors put their cans to the street.

I agree with other reviewers that the house is quite nice but we certainly did not receive the good customer service others did. Even a welcome book with the quirks noted would have been helpful

We had a family reunion here for our son's wedding. Prefect for entertaining & socializing or just relaxing with the view. All our family and friends loved it.
