Newly-constructed, cheerful and charming casita nestled in a quiet historic downtown neighborhood

The space
Just blocks from Route 66 and the historic Kimo Theatre, this mid-century modern style 450 sq. ft. casita adjoins its own private courtyard and reserved parking area, all on one level. Situated in the back of our home property, this quiet and welcoming space is designed with your privacy in mind. It offers easy access yet is secluded and private and makes a wonderful urban getaway.

The casita has a full kitchen and dining area that can double as a working space. For your entertainment, there is a sitting area with a Bluetooth speaker, wall-mounted TV, Roku, and a DVD player with a variety of DVDs. At the end of the day (or the beginning) enjoy a hot shower or a long luxurious soak in the steeping tub. Turn in at night in the expansive and very comfortable king-sized bed. New construction, systems, and appliances mean you’ll be cozy and comfy on the chilliest of nights while staying cool in the summer. As hosts, we go the extra mile to ensure a comfortable stay and that your expectations are exceeded.

Located just 8 minutes from the airport, one mile from I-25, 11 blocks from the Albuquerque Convention Center, three blocks from Central Ave (Historic Route 66), and minutes from UNM, you will find yourself close to everything you need for your stay in Albuquerque.

Note to our Balloon Fiesta guests. The casita is 13 miles from Fiesta Park. Guests often drive to the park with varying reports of traffic conditions. We often ride our bikes to the park to avoid car traffic. There is a continuous dedicated bike trail 0.7 miles from the casita that goes directly to the bike valet at Fiesta Park. Uber/Lyft is also an option.

Other things to note

• We have a friendly dog who does not have access to the casita, but is sometimes in the outer courtyard. She may bark when she first meets you, but is harmless. Please let us know if you prefer not to meet her and we will make sure she is inside as you come and go.
• Downtown Albuquerque can be colorful at times. We live in a quiet, yet diverse neighborhood. We love our neighborhood's character and the easy access it offers to the best in the city, but it may not be the best fit for all travelers. Please be aware when booking that this home is in an urban location.
