Interaction with Guests
I live here and will meet you at the door, but YOU MUST LET ME KNOW at booking approximate arrival time! Albuquerque has A LOT to offer; Affordable and Authentic. Let me know what you are looking for and I will help you find it faster. (food, art, culture, nature, nightlife, spirit, etc.) If you are just here to sleep, let me know.
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.

5. Check out is before 11am.
6. Use airbnb system.
7. DO NOT PARK in front of my neighbors house! Park in front of, even at the opposite side of my house. In a pinch to the south is ok, but unlikely needed.
8. Your "pet" is a guest. Add he/she. If you think your animal companion is not a guest and perhaps decoration, please don't book with me. I don't like humans who think like this.
Amecus was amiable and very helpful with finding cool places to visit. Her goats we're adorable (as were her chickens and bunnies) and the massage chairs were, to say the least, entertaining. However, I feel she should make her posting a bit more of an accurate reflection of her house, particularly the exterior photos.
All in all, a nice place to stay for a night (especially if you're an animal lover).
Amecus is a gracious host and knows Albuquerque well. The location is right near a beautiful park, and so is good for those who are traveling with a dog.
Amecus was a great host. She was very accommodating and friendly. The place had a very relaxing vibe and it a great place to rest after a long day of driving. The massage chairs are a must try. The animals in the back were very friendly. If you like goats, chickens, and rabbits, this is the place to stay. Overall, it was a great experience!
Great location for local attractions, super comfortable bed and great massage chairs to help with long drives! The goats are great fun too if, like me, that's your thing.
Let me just say I as a first time Airbnb I couldn't have asked for a better stay! Amecus is very nice, and such a unique host. Her animals are cute and her knowledge of the area is top notch. I honestly think she knows about everything and everyone in alberquerque. She will try and make your stay pleasant in any way she can. We played wii, played board games, had margaritas, and chatted about life. The space is as pictured and probably the biggest negative is you can't just rent the awesome massage chair!
Amecus was a wonderful host. She worked with my schedule to find a time for us to meet at the house, and then gave me a bunch of suggestions about what to explore in Albuquerque. She clearly loves being there. Try the Vegan Thai place. The red curry is excellent. Oh, and I loved Amecus' massage chair. What a great way to unwind after a long day on a motorcycle.
Very funky and cool place, things were well catered to guests. a unique experience created by a thoughtful and kind host.

About the Host, Amecus J.
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.
