I am happy to interact with guests as they would find helpful. The backyard is open and landscaped and a lovely place for family time.
Peaceful, restful retreat atmosphere. Lovely quiet, safe neighborhood right across the street from the beautiful University of New Mexico campus - wonderful for walking. Very convenient to charming Nob Hill and to Downtown, Old Town, sports stadiums, and the airport.
3 different bus lines are within 2-3 blocks. By car, the majority of Albuquerque's attractions are within a 10 minute (or less) drive.
The apartment is part of a lovely home. To access the apartment requires walking through the driveway gate, and around the house to the backyard where there's a flight of stairs going down to the apt. It's a basement-level apt. Much of the time I have my wonderful dog Jack at the house (see pictures).
2 night minimum. This is a non-smoking household but smoking in the backyard, away from the house, is fine.
Cheryl was friendly and hospitable. She let us borrow her hiking guide books, suggested restaurants and activities, and left treats to welcome us. The listing matched the description and was perfect for our needs. We look for listings that are clean, comfortable, and convenient and Cheryl's apartment exceeded our expectations. We walked in the neighborhood extensively and felt very safe.
Cheryl was a wonderful host that gave us as much help and as much privacy as we desired.
The place is as wonderful as described, full of amenities and all that one would need for a great stay.
Cheryl was an amazing host! I have been doing Airbnb for quite a while and this has definitely been my best experience so far. The space was amazing, the backyard was wonderful, and Cheryl's attitude and friendliness were above and beyond. I felt like if I needed anything I could go to Cheryl and ask. Jack the dog was definitely an added bonus that brought a lot of happiness to the experience. If you are second-guessing yourself about staying here, don't, just do it.
Cheryl was a lovely host, and the apartment was absolutely charming! It was a perfect retreat for my stay in Albuquerque. The space is as wonderful as it looks in the photos, and Cheryl went out of her way to answer questions and make sure we were comfortable. This is the best airbnb experience I've had and I would recommend this host to any traveller! Thanks Cheryl!
Cheryl is a good host. She was looking out for us when we arrived, as we were having trouble locating her house due to road construction and she guided us in. Her neighborhood is very convenient to the two major freeways, 40 and 25, and only 7 minutes from the airport. I enjoyed being in the University of NM area because of good, inexpensive dining options and a nice anthropology museum. Her yard and patio were a very welcome, calm respite from all the going, driving and doing during our visit. The apartment is small and in the basement, so we used the patio daily.
Communication is Cheryl's forte, which helped the check in and out go so smoothly! The apartment was exactly as described - charming, with all the amenities we required for this trip. We drove in to Albuquerque for a wedding ( I needed a place to do the final dress fitting and last minute details for the bride). Weather kept us on the road longer than expected so our arrival was later than we had advised & Cheryl was very accommodating. The home has easy access from major roads in UNM area and was the best location for all the events we had to attend as well, easy access to downtown and the interstate. This is a beautiful and comfortable place, we felt safe and definitely made ourselves at home taking full advantage of the well equipped kitchenette. We would definitely recommend Cheryl's lovely apartment.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay during our vacation to Albuquerque. Cheryl was a gracious host and very attentive to detail. including cream for our coffee and little snacks all ready upon arrival. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. The close proximity to UNM as well as businesses on Central Avenue was ideal. Communication before our stay was great too. And the outdoor spaces were beautiful and so enjoyable. We loved it!

About the Host, Cheryl
I have lived in Albuquerque for 15years and love it. It's a quirky, multicultural, artistic big town full of great people, events, and amazing history. I own a consulting business and have a home-based office so am very available to be responsive to the needs of my guests. I look forward to pointing you in the direction of my favorite places in Albuquerque and across New Mexico if you'd like some ideas! As a yoga practitioner I can also guide you to nearby yoga studios - 3 minutes from the apartment.
In addition to English, I speak some Spanish and French and love opportunities to practice.
Relax. Make yourself at home. Savor New Mexico!
