Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7), DirectTV and internet

This home provides a cool respite from the summer's intense heat, or a cozy place to 'hole up' by the fire during winter storms. Located at an elevation of 7100 feet in the Sandia Mountains. It is just off The Turquoise Trail, a National Scenic Byway that traverses the back country between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Drive 7 miles to the Sandia Peak Ski area or 14 miles to the top of the Sandia Mountains (elevation 10,760 ft) for a spectacular view of the Rio Grande Valley and far away mesas. There is so much to do and see in every direction and you can use this home as a launch pad for your day trips.

The home sleeps six with a futon couch, or seven using the single-bed futon mattress on a sturdy 40'-wide cot. There's also a crib-size mattress for toddlers/babies. The living room is large and comfortable and the SPACIOUS KITCHEN offers all the amenities and cooking utensils. Towels, extra sheets and blankets are provided. A large wood stove (as an alternative to the electric heat) will radiate a comfortable warmth during the winter months; firewood is provided. The two-car car port provides shelter for your vehicle(s) during the winter months. There are two large redwood decks; one is covered providing a shady, cool and private respite among the surrounding pinon pines.

A HOT TUB is provided to help you recover from your sports-related injuries, or just to relax under the night sky. This is great both in winter and in summer and it's right outside the back door in a setting that is private, bounded on the sides by trees and above by the fabulous New Mexico night sky. The back deck also has wooden deck furniture (table with umbrella and chairs) and a large barbeque gas grill for evening cook-outs. The DirectTV Ultimate package plus free-wifi internet access is also provided.

The location of this home is perfect - situated in the Sandia Mountains 12 miles east of Albuquerque, 35 minutes from the airport and less than an hour from Santa Fe. Providing a relaxing, getaway, it's less than 2 miles to grocery, gas, galleries and restaurants, 10 minutes to hiking in the Cibola National Forest or to the nationally-acclaimed Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Course, and 20 minutes to the ski area or to the city.

It's quaint, homey, and private with attractions in every direction. A great place for your family members and friends to stay during Thanksgiving, Christmas, Balloon Fiesta, Spring Break, the State Fair or your summer vacation.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable Damage Deposit C$250.78
Cleaning Fee C$100.31
Pet Fee C$30.09

Rental rates vary depending on the number of days rented, which days of the week, whether is a holiday season or not, the number of people staying, etc. This website's mechanism for inputting the rates is designed to enable them to provide you an automatic quote. However, the mechanism used is more constrained and less flexible than my complicated spreadsheet formulas and the automatic quote is therefore APPROXIMATE.

There are basically two rates, low season and high season. Low season is $148/nt, $756/wk while High season is $163/nt, $810/wk. Spring Break is an average of low and high. Multiple-night discounts start a 3 nights or more. Rates are for four people or less; slight surcharge for additional people. Similarly for cleaning fee.

Best to fill out the "instant quote" box in order to send the inquiry and I will promptly reply with an accurate quote.
