Interaction with Guests
I will meet you at the door at the time you specified, generally. I live in the house too. I love to help you find what you will most enjoy about Albuquerque. if you want to come feed the animals in the morning let me know.
If you are gluten free, paleo or whatever, let me know at booking. i will do my best to accommodate.
Center of city. 1/3 acre park half block away. Award winning, locally owned, Coffee shop (Napolli) and Brewery (La Cumbre) IN WALKING DISTANCE!
First, I am literally exactly 1 minute off the center of the city by car. The freeways cross and you can go anywhere in the minimum amount of time; great for people who want to experience everything Albuquerque and beyond. Second, I am less than a block away from multiple city buses, which, for $2 will take you all over the city and to the train, bus, and airplane. Its $11 round trip train to Santa Fe on the local train. Third, you can rent a bike, helmet & lock from me for $10 a day. I have just one, it is a 7 speed purple beach cruiser with head and tail lights. Inquire for availability. There is lots of free street parking.
1. Don't be a jerk.
2. Clean up after yourself, but don't bother making beds. (unless you want to for some reason)
3. No smoking. No illegal drugs.
4. At booking give me an approximate (at least) arrival time. Check in is anytime after 3pm.
5. Unless you are going to do laundry, clean room, and prep for the next guest, check out is before 11am.
6. Use airbnb system.
7. DO NOT PARK in front of my neighbors house! (kind of goes with don't be a jerk, rule 8). Park in front of, even at the opposite side of my house. In a pinch to the south is ok, but unlikely needed.
Our group of three had a really lovely stay here! We were really only in and out, but we had a marvelous night's sleep, and everything was clean and welcoming. We are very grateful for the last-minute hospitality and flexibility!
House of 1000 massage chairs! Our host greeted us with a smile after our long day of traveling. We were shown several of the massage chairs before we were shown the room! The brand new monster chair was amazing and I spent a blissful 1/2 hour in it.
The bed was firm, the room was warm enough, and it was just like the pictures. A fun urban farm.
We came to stay but never actually met Amecus. There was good communication up until the stay and she did make sure we found everything via text but didnt have any face to face introduction/acclimation. Since this was my first BnB experience I'm not positive how breakfast is supposed to work but no one was home and we weren't sure about helping ourselves so ended up going for breakfast after 11.
I am usually here. We were both at the women of the world poetry slam and oddly never ended up in the same events. Initially you were going to check in afternoon, in between events, but then changed to the evening, which meant I could only give door opening directions as i was on stage. Unless I am actually on stage, I am available through text.
Amecus was sweet and hospitable. Her space was warm and low-key in all the right ways. Hot tub, massage chairs, and healthy snacks were such a treat. Thumbs up!
perfect airbnb, quaint artist/farmer vibe with a genuine and welcoming host. 5/5
Very nice stay. Amecus was friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The description was accurate.
Amecus was welcoming and friendly. Her place gets lots of visitors and feels like a quirky artist hostel. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of driving. Make sure to read the magnet poetry on the fridge!

Ten years ago, I nearly died, 9 times. I lived (obviously I am not speaking through the grave), not everyone did. For someone who catches a mere cold only once every 7 years, the 2 year recovery to do basic things like drive a car, plan a meal or sleep, was world shattering. Besides losing my spectacular health, I lost my career and harmed or maimed important relationships, some irreparably. Previous to the experience, I held no debt. After paying medical bills (the largest bills I have ever experienced) I decided, to buy a house for the same amount I spent on the bills and create a healing place so I can rebuild resilient health. I spent a year with the initial remodel of the house but it is an ongoing endeavor.
Initially I rented rooms to graduate students and it shows. Lots of reading nooks and desks. I started with airbnb in June 2013 and it has been a great success. I would like to offer the opportunity to stay at my home to people interested. I intend to eventually be a therapeutic foster parent for teens. When this works out, the house will no longer be available. I set up a : ) BOOK ( F a c e B o o k ) page called Albuquerque Micro-Farm, where you see more pictures, and experience the labyrinth, and small videos of the animals.
I am a TEDhead, Life-hacker, U.S. Soldier, Vegetarian, Researcher, Artist, Permaculture Enthusiast, Psychology/Social Work Student. I believe in and constantly strive for resilient health. I've can't resist a dance flash mob :) A 'Foodie', yes I take pictures of food, often.
FAVS: Movie: The Wizard of Oz/currently, The Wolverine; Book: The Velveteen Rabbit, and whatever Malcolm Gladwell recently wrote; Music: Lead Me On (Amy Grant), club remixes of pop songs, Super Mashups; Food: Pizza; Destination: My Hammock (w' book); Show: currently, The Fosters, generally The Colbert Report.
I have many life mottos:
If it doesn't move you, whats the point.
No matter how trustworthy he seams, never give your gun to a monkey.
You can never trust quotes on the internet- Abraham Lincoln.
If life gives you Melons, you may be dyslexic.
At the end of the day, the issue is always, the person in the mirror.
What doesn't kill you...Will really F*** you up!
Never Drink and Derive.
If you think you can, or if you think you can't, you are correct; Choose wisely.
Should I go this way or that way? Well it depends on where you want to end up.
