About this listing
My home is near the Rio Grande in the North Valley. My neighborhood is peaceful. Walking and biking trails can be accessed from the house. I am 15- 20 minutes from UNM or Downtown.
I would consider longer-term renters.
This is for one room with a Queen sized bed in a small 4 bedroom home. You have access to the guest bathroom which may or may not be shared by another guest. I have my own bathroom in the back of the house which can also be accessible. In the chance that you wish to stay for a longer period and the Queen bedroom is not available for the entire length of time, I have a spare room with a comfortable futon for the days that the Queen bedroom is not available. So if it seems that the Queen bedroom is not available for all of the days that you would like to stay, please check with me. I might be able to put you into the futon room for those few days.
There is plenty of room in the fridge and pantry for your food.
The kitchen, living room, laundry and backyard are common areas.
I live in the house year 'round and work from the house in the day time.
Front door. The Queen bedroom is at the front of the house. You will get your own key to the house that you will return before you depart. You cannot lock your room separately, but there is not reason to.
My room is in the back and the spare bed is off to the side. With the exception of my bedroom the rest of the house and backyard are common areas and the guest bath may or may not be shared with another guest.
I own cats, but your bedroom is closed off to them.

Hello, my name is Robin and if have lived in Albuquerque, NM most of my life. I enjoy traveling a lot, but New Mexico is home. I love it here!
Presently, I own a video production company which specializes in video marketing for Corporate, Small Business and Non-Profit businesses and, also, video production for classical music and classical music artists. I started the company three years ago. Before starting my own business, I was the Operations Manager for the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra for a very long time. I can't complain much. It's been fun.
