Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom (sleeps 2) + air mattress, 1 Bath

AS OF August 1, 2017 AND THROUGH DECEMBER 2017, WE WILL TAKE 10% OFF THE LISTED RENTAL RATES FOR ANY NEW BOOKINGS OR ADDED DAYS TO EXISTING BOOKINGS.

(We are planning to convert this house to a long-term rental in January 2018. We have the first occupant signed to begin in January 2018 and will no longer be taking new reservations for bookings to start beyond 2017. This status will continue indefinitely.)

Charming old adobe in the Village of Los Ranchos in Albuquerque’s North Valley on five acres of farmland with direct access to endless hiking/jogging/biking trails along the tree-filled bosque of the Rio Grande and easy drives to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness and to Old Town area of Albuquerque. It's an hour drive to the Santa Fe Plaza, or take the RailRunner train from the Los Ranchos station less than 2 miles from the house.

The walls of the present kitchen and dining room constituted one of the original houses on what is now Rio Grande Blvd. The present house has a layout typical of old New Mexico, where one room was added at a time. It is 1300 square feet, was completely renovated in 2004, and is fully furnished.

The semi-rural character and privacy make this an ideal and relaxing rental spot for anyone wanting to vacation in the Albuquerque area or for persons needing temporary furnished housing for work or study, visit to family, or getting ready for a move to the area.

There is one small bedroom (queen bed) with a generous adjacent sitting room with cable HD TV, DVD player with extensive video and reading libraries. The large living room has beamed ceiling, gas fireplace.

The dining area is a direct extension off the kitchen and has its own woodburning kiva fireplace with a unique copper mantel. There's a separate office with broadband internet connection and WiFi.

A bricked patio with a huge cottonwood, fruit trees, lawns, gardens, and 2 eating areas are enclosed with adobe walls. Great sunsets spread across 3-acre alfalfa field which is on this property to the west.

Daily, weekly, and monthly rates are available. Nightly rates decrease after the first seven days,

PROSPECTIVE RENTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CALL THE OWNER ABOUT RENTAL RATES BECAUSE THE AUTOMATIC CALCULATION MAY OVERSTATE THE ESTIMATED CHARGES, NOT FULLY ALLOWING FOR MUCH LOWERED NIGHTLY RATES AFTER THE INITIAL WEEK.

THE HOUSE IS COMFORTABLE AND MORE THAN AMPLE FOR TWO PERSONS. ADDITIONAL PERSON(S) CAN BE ACCOMMODATED, BUT DIRECT DISCUSSION ABOUT LIMITATIONS FOR SLEEPING (BLOW-UP MATTRESS), PRIVACY, ETC. IS ESSENTIAL PRIOR TO BOOKNG.

No smoking, (Smoking permitted outside the house.) Sorry, pets are discouraged.

About Bill Wiese

We are a semi-retired physician/faculty at the University of NM and wife who has been a weaver and champion of the fiber arts. We have lived and raised our family here for 46 years on 2-acres including pasture with sheep and goats immediately next door to this adobe rental. As owners, we directly manage the rental property.

Bill Wiese purchased this house in 2004

Why Bill Wiese chose Los Ranchos de Albuquerque

This is one of the original adobe houses built after the levees were constructed and controlled flooding along the Rio Grande in the 1930s. The five acres survives a special rural oasis in an area that has recently become more developed with residential homes. It has been important to us to preserve this property and this special house.

What makes this house unique

Access directly off the property to endless hiking/jogging/biking trails along the tree-filled bosque of the Rio Grande; easy 10 mile drive to trailheads in the Sandia Mountain Wilderness.

Located in the North Valley, the property is just three miles to Balloon Fiesta Park, an easy five and a half miles directly to Albuquerque's Old Town and museums, six miles to Biopark and zoo, ten miles to the University area and Nob Hill. The Los Ranchos Saturday farmers' market is only a mile away. Nearby bridges provide ready access to the west side of the river and Rio Rancho. Interstates running north/south (I-25) and east/west (I-40) are easily reached, making this an excellent jumping off point for exploring the entire state.

we anticipated a nice home and respite from local activities. in reality we experienced a far greater depth of care and consideration than expected. the home is beautiful inside and out, and offers a calm elegance. so restful. bill welcomed us and shared about how things work .. greatly appreciated. i'm hoping we have reason to visit the area again and if so, we'll be requesting lodging at this old adobe treasure. thank you!!!

Our second stay at this charming casita. A true feel of the southwest.

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all. A great rural location. Yes. Even lambs and goats.

Owners who take such interest in this 80 year old casita that has such a unique history.

Beautiful southwestern furnishings. Fully furnished. Minutes from the rural town of Corrales and our favorite restaurant Indigo Crow. We had a perfect vacation.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and his charming adobe were AMAZING! He was very thorough in walking us through the house to orient us. He was so incredibly hospitable. The kitchen was the best outfitted kitchen I have ever been in and made cooking at the house easy and fun!

The casita was so close to the beautiful and peaceful Bosque (a five minute walk ).

Plus, our two small kids LOVED meeting the goats and sheep.

Thank you to Bill for sharing this beautiful piece of New Mexico with us. We hope to come back and truly enjoyed this slice of natural and historic beauty.

A southwest home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful hacienda home is located in the peaceful area of Rancho de Albuquerque. It is minutes from easy long walks on the canals. The bike path is down the block. Bill even provided me a bike. The property is in the middle of horse estates. I had a horseback riding lesson across the street. The home is decorated in charming southwest style. Bill responded immediately to helping with whatever i needed for the house. For a relaxed and peaceful fireside evening or an adventure to Old Town or Santa Fe this is the ideal location.
