Amecus i an awesome host. She remained calm even though I had to change my plans a few times, due to my car breaking down. Other hosts would've cancelled the booking but she did not. Thank you so much! The place is very nice. The room is cozy and comfy and her whole place is like a temple. Really funny

I would not recommend staying here. It was not what I expected. There are many other options in the same price range that are more comfortable.

Response from Amecus J.:
I am not responsible for people expecting something different than what I offer. There are ample airbnb verified photos and my assortment of amateur pictures. I wish guests like this DID NOT BOOK with me and instead stayed at places she imagines are the same price but more comfortable. Gave straight 1 stars, dropping my average ratings when it had to do with unreasonable expectations on the guest.

Amecus's place was quite a unique experience: with cool, funky artwork, a mini-farm, and a lively and thoughtful host, the stay felt more personal than other places I've stayed. If you're looking for a spotlessly-clean, hotel-like, run-of-the-mill space, this is not your Airbnb. But if you're looking for a friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable host and down to add a little weird into your trip, you'll enjoy this place.

Amecus is so knowledgable and such a real, direct person. I really enjoyed her presence and the work of art that is her home, quality self expression. See you again Amecus!

Amecus J. User Profile

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 : ) BOOpage 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.
