Property description

La Perla is the perfect place to stay for enjoying Old Town and the numerous activities nearby. This private adobe casita/guesthouse in Albuquerque's historic Old Town neighborhood welcomes vacationers, families, and business travelers alike. Lovingly restored after years of neglect, this Old Town property is convenient to restaurants, museums, galleries and shopping. Guests frequently have described La Perla as a home away from home with both Southwest charm and modern conveniences.

The 1 bedroom casita sleeps up to 2 adults and 2 children with a queen-size bed in bedroom and double sleeper sofa in the living room. Enjoy the lovely courtyard during these warm weather months or sipping your favorite glass of wine or reading a book in front of the living room's inviting gas kiva fireplace with full banco. Brick floors and slightly vaulted ceiling, along with dining table and comfortable sofa and chairs, complete the living room's ambience.
We hope you'll join our family of delighted La Perla guests who come back over and over.
The bedroom has a queen-sized plush mattress, dresser and closet with a shower bath just off the bedroom and a courtyard entrance. The kitchen is fully furnished and includes coffeemaker, microwave and washer/dryer. For stays of more than 2 weeks, maid service is provided every other week. Both living room and bedroom have courtyard access - a pleasant place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast, entertain guests, or just hang out in the warm weather months.

PLEASE NOTE: Starting September 2015, La Perla will make the front bungalow available on a limited basis. Contact us for more information

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Rob Rispoli and Phyllis Harper-Rispoli are the proud owners of La Perla in Old Town. Having traveled a great deal ourselves, we know how important the little things can be and take delight in providing a "home away from home" for our visitors from around the U.S. and the world. Phyllis, with years of experience in career development, has assisted numerous men and women on how to improve their careers or find new passions. Her experience with people and her dedication to their needs can be seen in the care and consideration she provides to each person that stays at La Perla. Rob has spent decades provide real estate services to families throughout the U.S. He still maintain a mortgage lending company but more often than not you will find him in the courtyard working on the flowers and pond that make the courtyard a quiet peaceful place to 'hang out'. As only the third owners in a hundred years our obligation is to watch over and manage this beautiful historic property for others to enjoy...Rob and Phyllis

Why the Owner Chose Plaza Vieja, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
We moved a great deal and while Tempe, Arizona was our base we lived in Palo Alto, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Durango, CO, Greenville, SC AND Albuquerque. As Tempe and the Phoenix area grew, we decided it was the right time to relocate to a smaller city and a less stressful lifestyle. One day, while on a business trip to Albuquerque, Rob noticed a for sale sign being pounded into the ground in front of a just-renovated Old Town property. He stopped, greeted the owner, went inside, called Phyllis and the rest as they say is history! We love our property and want you to feel as comfortable and relaxed as we do everyday when we greet the day. Come stay with us and enjoy the very best of our town in old town...!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
La Perla is located in the heart of Old Town. We are close to parks, museums and great shopping. We are a block from the beautiful plaza which has restaurants, art galleries, and authentic Native-American jewelry. We are on the main bus grid and you can be downtown with access to the 'Railrunner' to Santa Fe in eight minutes. We have great local dining and lots of music venues in the summer. We are one mile from the Bio-Park and so much more. Park your car and walk, enjoy the great views, the great weather, and tne wonderful atmosphere of old town! (We do, everyday)
