About This Listing
This casita is private and comfortable, just minutes from central Albuquerque and walks along the Rio Grand. In an old New Mexico neighborhood, for a unique experience in small home living with every thing you need and nice hosts to boot.
Our home and casita are located south of Downtown Albuquerque, bordered by the Rio Grande and historic Route 66.
Centrally located just 12 minutes from downtown, 14 minutes to the Sunport Airport, 15 minutes to UNM and the Nob Hill districts, 10 minutes to the Rail Runner to Santa Fe and freeway access and 9 minutes to BioPark Aquarium and the Zoo.
We built our casita 3 years ago as an experiment in Small Home Living. We lived comfortably here for a year with kitchen, full bath, bedroom, sitting/dining room and a secluded outdoor living space.( and we're still happily married!)
The kitchen is set up for light cooking with a refrigerator/freezer, cooktop, microwave and coffee maker. Some necessities are stocked as well, with grocery stores near by.
The bedroom has a double bed with feather comforter and blankets, your choice of pillows and crisp new sheets.
The bath features shower, toilet and lav sink.
Right now, the on-demand hot water heater allows for a shower, but not a long soak. Remember, Albuquerque is having a long drought at present.
There is secure off street parking in a fenced yard for your privacy and your pets pleasure. Of course, pets should be contained if left unattended.
There are several bikes available for access to nearby River paths just blocks away. Albuquerque is a great bike town with miles of dedicated bike paths and lanes (maps available).
There Is TV with local reception, DVD and DSL wifi provided as well as a great music system, iPhone/iPod compatible.
We can help you discover and enjoy the area or leave you comfortably alone to explore on your own.
You will have private parking, a fenced in yard, private outdoor space and a full living space with functional kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
Saba and family may be home (in the front house) while you are visiting, or we may be off on one of our jaunts around the country. Please feel free to visit with us if you like, otherwise you have complete privacy.
All the map apps will get you right to our neighborhood. If you have turned on to our road and are unsure of the next step, the house is the 3rd house on the right. Pull into the parking area through the gate, the casita is located at the back of the property through the blue gate.
The casita was perfect for a quick stay! Saba communicated quickly and everything was as described.
Saba was a wonderful host and the casita exceeded our expectations. We were traveling with our infant and she generously helped us out by finding a pack'n'play for us. Meeting her family was a delight and I would recommend the casita to anyone seeking simple, comfortable accommodations in this area.
What an adorable casita! Made for such a comfortable stay. Saba was such an awesome hostess - great communication and she made us feel so welcome! She also gave us great food recommendations. Would love to stay with her on my next visit to Albuquerque!
Saba's place is great! Communication was very good. I didn't want to bother her, but it was a very hot day and I couldn't get the AC to work. I called her and we solved the problem immediately. It is a very compact and complete unit, with everything you would need for a great stay in Albuquerque. We live down the road in Las Cruces NM and visit ABQ quite often. When we do, it will be at Sabas casita.
