The Space

A 300 sq ft casita (i.e, guest house or bungalow) is available near I-40 and Rio Grande Blvd. This area is generally the division between the “North Valley" and “Downtown" areas of Albuquerque. The casita is within walking distance to the natural food co-op and a regular grocer; 5 minutes away from bosque (i.e., wooded river) bike trails, zoo, botanical gardens, and the old town plaza. A small community park is three houses away and access to the irrigation ditch trails is close by. The guest house is located behind my home and through its own private access gate to the yard.

The casita consists of a furnished open living space with a combined bed and kitchenette area plus a bathroom containing a shower, sink, and toilet. The kitchenette is very basic (coffee maker, microwave, cook plate, refrigerator, and dishware). Bath towels and bed linens are included in your stay. There is heating and air conditioning. Free Wi-Fi internet is available. Off site laundry services are available for long term guests in coordination with me. General cleaning supplies are provided inside the casita.

Nearby restaurants include St. Clair Winery, Flying Star, and Village Pizza. This location is 15 minutes from downtown eateries, such as Slate Street Cafe and Farina.

I keep a quiet property; however, children are always welcome. The nearby park offers a nice grassy place to run around. I have a fenced flock of chickens, which most people find charming and amusing. A rooster is no longer present at the property.

Interaction with Guests

There is another family renting the main house. I live 5 minutes away and am on-site regularly and as requested. Please contact me with all needs and emergencies - after all I'm only around the corner :)

The Neighborhood

It's quiet and conveniently located near Old Town, downtown, and I-40.

Getting Around

Public transit is nearby but please refer to the City of Albuquerque website for more information on logistics, stops, and schedules.
