COVID19 UPDATE

WE DO OUR BEST TO ENSURE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR GUESTS DURING THE COVID19 PANDEMIC

We always adhere to the highest cleaning and safety standards. We won't compromise when it comes to keeping our guests safe, and now we've added more measures to ensure our guests' well being.

We disinfect all kitchen and bathroom surfaces (just like we did before the COVID19 pandemic). Now we also disinfect all handles and hard surfaces, and thoroughly spray our properties with disinfectant spray twice. First time - before we start cleaning, and second time when we are done with the cleaning. As always, all laundry is washed and dried at the highest temperature settings, and now we change beds in masks and gloves. If guests stayed with us for short periods of time, we run comforters and pillows through the dryers to allow hot temperatures to kill the virus, otherwise we wash them in hot water.

We'll be happy to implement more safety measures on request, just let us know. Your health and your peace of mind are important to us!

Stay safe and well! We all are in this together, and we'll make it through.

***
While our minimum stay is 3 weeks, we welcome shorter stays as well! Bookings for shorter stays are available in between or adjacent to longer bookings, and 1-7 days prior to the arrival date.

We are happy to offer GOVERNMENT RATES to all our guests (holidays and short stays can be priced differently). Please note, there is also an one time cleaning fee on top of per diem, which is not covered by LANL.

This beautiful, tastefully decorated flat with European flair will immediately make you feel at home (and a little bit in Europe :)). We've added many personal touches to create a warm, cozy, relaxing atmosphere - great books, art on the walls, and a few antiques (1930's Native American bow with arrows is our favorite).

The property is ideally located close to all amenities of downtown and within a short 5 min drive (or nice 20-30 minutes walk) to LANL. Great restaurants, coffee shops, museums, live music, an intricate network of trails - all are within a few minutes of walking!

Kitchen comes fully stocked for the real chef. It is complete with full sized refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, coffee makers (yes, a few, because people have preferences :) ), toaster, stand and hand mixers, food processor, blender, rice cooker, pots, pans, dishes, containers, mugs, wine glasses, utensils, etc. In the cabinets you'll find coffee, tea and cereal. Our guests often leave extra food in the fridge, feel free to use whatever inspires you, but please check the expiration date.

Master bedroom has a King size bed with the comfortable posturepedic memory foam mattress, a second bedroom has a twin day bed with a second twin mattress on a trundle that slides out from underneath. The second bedroom has a desk. Bath robes, bed linens, duvet covers, and towels are provided. In the closet you will find extra towels, sheets, blankets, pillows.

There are two bathrooms in the unit. One has a shower and is connected to the Master bedroom, another bathroom has a bathtub. Enjoy a deep bathtub and a never-ending supply of hot water coming from the main water heater of the building!

A compact Washer/Dryer is located in the unit, in addition to the coin operated laundry room on the ground floor of the building (never underestimate the fun of meeting interesting locals there :) ). Complimentary laundry supplies are provided.

WE CARE about our guests with sensitivities, and only use fragrance free, dermatologists and pediatricians recommended laundry detergent for all bedding, towels, and bath robes. We are health and environmentally conscious and try to use "green", non-toxic cleaning products whenever possible. Our selection of bath products always includes a few natural options as well. If you have sensitivities that need to be addressed, please let us know, and we'll do our best to accommodate them.

We make sure, that our guests have a healthy cookware. While we have some traditional non-stick cookware for those who likes to use it, we also have ceramic non-stick sets (ceramic is a healthier alternative to Teflon), stainless steel and some cast iron. We hope our guests will have fun cooking!

To make you feel more at home, we've supplied condo with toys, games, and puzzles for kids and adults. Families love them! The nice collection of books for all ages and tastes will keep you entertained for a while. We've even included a collection of books on local outdoor adventures and history!

The condo has one assigned covered parking space on the ground floor of the building. Additional free parking is available for extra cars. The condo is equipped with air conditioner to keep you comfortable on hot summer days and a balcony with two comfy chairs to enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine, or watch our beautiful sunsets. Most of the units in the buildings are occupied by LANL employees and their families, offering a safe, family friendly environment.

The location of the condo is one of the best in town. It is within a 5-10 min drive from LANL (5 min to LANL badge office), a 2-3 min drive to the Smiths grocery store, a 3 minute drive to the YMCA, a 1 min drive to the Urgent Care (great facility, but hopefully you'll never have to use it!), a 1 min drive to the hospital, a 2 minute drive (or 6 min walk) to the Aquatic center with an Olympic sized indoor swimming pool.

The closest trails to the condo are the trails in the Acid canyon behind the swimming pool and the nature center (6 minutes walking). Despite the name, which probably bears some historical significance, Acid canyon trails are local favorites, especially in summer. Be prepared to spend a few hours exploring them, and carry a bear spray with you, as locals are not the only ones enjoying trails. Wild life is abundant here in Los Alamos!

The condo should have all you need, but in case we've missed anything, please give us a call and we'll bring it! I've tried to include all things worth mentioning in the description, but if I left out anything, that is important to you, please don't hesitate to get in touch! I am always looking forward to hosting great people and making their time at our properties comfortable and enjoyable!

Guest access
Guests stay in a private condo. 24 hours check in with the digital lock.

Other things to note
Please note, that the condo is on the 2nd floor (not counting the ground floor). There is no elevator in the building.

Master bedroom has a large walk-in closet. The second bedroom has an open wardrobe.

The dryer is equipped with the indoor filtered exhaust. It doesn't produce any dust or smell when operating. We also have retractable clotheslines set up on the balcony. Standard washers and dryers are located in the laundry room at the ground floor of the building ($1 for washers, 25c for dryers).

Whenever possible we are always happy to accommodate late check-outs and early check-ins, but unfortunately can not guarantee them ahead of time. Guests are welcome to bring their belongings any time after 11 AM, check-in is at 4 PM. We often allow late check-out for the people with little kids who need to stay for a few more hours, but since we usually have guests checking in on the same day, please clean up after yourself and collect all your belongings outside by 11 AM, when a cleaning service arrives.

For TV we have Internet Sling TV with 30 cable channels. More channels including HBO can be provided for an additional fee. We also have Roku, which allows you to watch your favorite shows from your accounts with Netflix, HBOGO, AmazonPrime, HULU, etc.

OUTDOOR SAFETY

Remember your sunscreen and water, especially in summer! Dehydration and sunburns happen fast here. When enjoying outdoors, please watch out for the wildlife. Los Alamos is often visited by mountain lions, bears, coyotes and deer. Rattle snakes are common in the area as well.

Bears are the frequent visitors in town and they seem to love our trails as much as we do. Please keep an eye on your children and pets playing outside. Be especially aware of the mothers with cubs. The bear attacks that happened in the area were caused by the mother bears protecting their cubs. Pepper/bear spray is highly recommended.

FAQs

Will LANL pay for my stay at your property?

Our guests have never had any problems with that. For reimbursement our guests submit to LANL a signed receipt of their payment and a short term lease agreement. For new hires, LANL compensates 60 days of lodging expenses for staff members, and 30 days for postdocs.

Can I bike to LANL from condo?

Yes! It takes about 11 minutes to bike to LANL Otowi building (where the badge office is) from the condo.

How close is the bus stop? Can I make it to LANL on a bus?

The bus stops are within a few minutes walking distance from the condo. To take a bus to the lab, walk 6 min to the bus stop by the library. A bus stop for the buses to Santa Fe is there as well. Generally, all bus stops in town are located within 5 - 10 minutes of walking from any residence. The bus will take you to the transit center near the entrance to LANL area. From there you can walk, bike, or use the free LANL taxi (667-taxi) to get to the building you need.

How safe is the neighborhood of condo?

Los Alamos is a safe town and our crime rate is very low, all of the neighborhoods are normally safe. Condo is located in the area, where most of the residents are LANL employees and their families. But in the unlikely case you'll need it, a police department is 1 min driving away.

How often do you wash your bath mats, bath robes and duvet covers?

We always wash them between guests. Being from Europe, we couldn't resist bringing the European tradition of duvet covers to our rentals. In Europe they are used in place of flat sheets, and we think they are much more comfortable and hygienic. We hope you will like them as well! All extra duvet covers, pillows in pillowcases, and bed linens that you will find in a closet are clean. We ask you to please let us know if you have used any of them, so that we can wash them.

Hi! We are Olga and Andrei, and we enjoy creating beautiful, comfortable properties that feel like home. We try to think of every little detail that turns a house into a home, and bring them all to our flats. We think of our guests as friends, who came to visit, and we are always there for them when they need our help with settling in comfortably, getting to know the area, or just need some inside information about our town (we've been living here for 22 years!). We both are engineers by trade and enjoyed working at LANL. Our oldest son is working on his MS in Austria. Our youngest is in the Elementary school. Among our combined interests are travel (together we've visited about 40 countries), hiking, learning new languages, art, collecting wine, tennis, history, books and of course, meeting new people! We meet all kinds of Amazing people through our Airbnbs - some make us laugh, others make us think, and all broaden our view of the world and humanity (which is always a good thing, right? :) ). If you have any questions about the properties or the area, please don't hesitate to get in touch! We are always happy to hear from you and to share local tips to make your stay more enjoyable! If you love hiking and need an advice on local trails, we'll be happy to share our favorite spots or take you on a hike! We have some truly amazing trails right here in town and nearby. Hope to see you at one of our properties, and maybe some of our hikes!
