Los Alamos is a great base for exploring northern New Mexico by car. Georgia O'Keefe country (Ghost Ranch) is 45 minutes north. Taos is an hour and a half drive northeast. Santa Fe is close with its wonderful restaurants and attractions. Albuquerque is south, an hour and a half, by freeway, and there are many Pueblos nearby. West is the Valle Grande, a beautiful nature preserve. Jemez Springs is an old hot springs resort in a gorgeous red-rock valley just a half hour away.

The Atomic City, Los Alamos, is the birthplace of the atom bomb. The Bradbury Museum features the history, science, and the consequences for a world changed by that invention. A walking tour map is available at the history museum, as are lovely hikes through the mesas and canyons, mountain biking trails, a first class library, and the world's highest Olympic indoor swimming pool. Buses are free and run all over town. A bus circulates through the business area, others go to White Rock and the Bandelier National Monument. The area is safe and quiet.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sherry was the best host! I love to talk, and she was an absolutely wonderful conversationalist. She gave great advice about the neighborhood and navigating. The email communication was always prompt, and Sherry was accommodating for my check-in and check-out times.

    The private area was clean and quite spacious! I was able to eat meals and do laundry with convenience like being at home. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I am both an AirBnB host and a traveler. I am slowly working my way around the world. So far I have enjoyed staying with AirBnB hosts. It's always good to have a local person who is knowledgable about the town, the activities, and the good and bad areas. As a solo traveler, it's also good to have someone who would be worried about me if I didn't show up back at home some evening! I am fond of animals and enjoy meeting lots of people. When I am on a trip, my friend Rheta rents my condo to AirBnB guests in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA. Otherwise, I am happy to host people from around the world. Since I am more often the guest with AirBnB, I have an appreciation for what a guest needs in a temporary home, and try to provide that for them. I try to be respectful of other people's space and time, and treat other people's homes as my own. While it is fun to go and do things with a host, I also understand that people are busy in their own lives, so I have no expectation that they will entertain me in any way. However, since I love to cook, I am happy to make a few meals for all of us to share. Looking forward to meeting you!
