My place is close to family-friendly activities, the airport, public transport, the city center, and nightlife.
My place has a LOT of character. This is not for travelers that are wanting a traditional type hotel/house. Our house is from the 1800’s. Many of the furnishings are either handmade or refurnished.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
There is off street parking with a locking security gate.
The house is located in the first neighborhood in Albuquerque. Barelas is historical and full of character. My house property is date back to the late 1700’s!! The house itself is dated to 1800’s. Again, it is very old with a lot of character. This is not for people wanting a traditional type hotel experience. We do what we can, but the house is old school with old school items.
The house was built in “shotgun” style (which means, it’s built with rooms arranged one behind the other and doors at each end of the house) and has adobe in parts of the home.
The kiva area is authentic to the South West style of living.
This is the desert. So that means there is DUST. This is a DESERT. The house is cleaned after every visit, but dust happens everyday. By walking in the house you bring in dust. I mention this because I think people think I should be able to control the elements of our area and forget we are in a desert.

My dog is next dog and will bark when you arrive. He likes to help me know when guests are here :) He will not get into your yard. There are stray cats all over the neighborhood but NONE live in the house.
Please leave the house in the condition in which you found it.
If you are traveling with pets, we ask that you please clean up after your pet and you will be responsible for any of pet damage. I love animals! But sometimes they like to do what they want :)
And please note that I have been disabled due to a very violent pit bull attack. I LOVE dogs, but if your dog has aggression issues, please do not stay here.
