Perfect family gathering
The Lizard House was the perfect place for us to call "home". The four generations all gathered around the patio and dining room table. What a joy! Thank you!
Wonderful adobe treasure trove.
We had an excellent stay at the Lizard House. It was funky and cool at the same time. It had everything we needed and more. The photos don’t do the house justice, because it was beyond expectation.
The house was in a great location close to the Rio Grande, with easy access to the old town, and historic route 66.
Very eclectic and spacious house. Loved the outside space as much as the inside space. Great location and easy access to restaurants, hiking trails and sight seeing! House well equipped and comfortable.
Excellent home away from home
We enjoyed our stay at the lizard house. It was spacious, artfully decorated and very well equipped. The only nit we had was the lack of a privacy curtain/blind in one of the bathrooms. The neighborhood is quiet with excellent walking and birding around the Bachechi open space that loops back to the house. There is easy access within a 5 minute drive to dining and other supplies including freshly roasted coffee. Laura was very responsive to any questions we had - even over the Christmas break.
All in all highly recommended!
The Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, New Mexico is located in the heart of the North Valley of Bernalillo County. It is seven miles from downtown Albuquerque, the Rio Grande River is to the West and the Sandia Mountains to the East, we enjoy rural quiet living with an abundance of wildlife. Our main north/south streets are Rio Grande Boulevard and Fourth Street. Rio Grande Boulevard winds its way along the Rio Grande River and bosque and provides an excellent view of our agricultural heritage. Fourth Street has been designated a scenic byway due to its historic Route 66 and El Camino Real roots.
