About Phyllis Harper-Rispoli
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
Phyllis Harper-Rispoli purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Phyllis Harper-Rispoli chose Old Town
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...!
What makes this Cottage unique
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)

Wonderful pet friendly
We are traveling and getting ready to move into new house. Great hospitality and our dog loved running around a yard. Also most comfortable bed.
The dogs had such fun! If only moving were that much fun, right? But we love hosting both newcomers and ‘returnees’ to ABQ! i Bienvenidos! Phyllis & Rob
Great stay in Albuquerque
Nice property. Comfortable accommodations and. Wish the shower was larger. We wanted to take Aggie home with us.
Yes, the shower is 'cozy', isn't it? We thank you for leaving Aggie here as our other guests would have fought you for that job!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at The La Perla cottage. The cottage was decorated beautifully and very clean. The location is within walking distance of The Old Town Plaza, which has a lot of shops and places to eat. We enjoyed visiting with Rob and their sweet dog Aggie. Thanks for the Peppers. Thanks Doug and Renee
We highly recommend this beautiful casita. The owners are very friendly and welcoming.
Thank you, Al. We look forward to your next stay. We love having our guests come back! Phyllis & Rob
Wonderful home and owners.
Our dog loved Albuquerque!
The casita exceeded our expectations. The casita was as advertised and the location was perfect for enjoying Old Town and the Mexican restaurants that we love. Phyllis, Rob and Aggie were wonderful hosts and very welcoming to us and our lab. Phyllis even introduced me to a new fabric shop (maybe not a plus for some family members). We certainly hope to return.
It was a delight having you three as guests. We’re so glad you found La Perla and await your return to ABQ. Rob, Phyllis & Aggie
Yoga studios nearby. Happy to recommend if asked.
