About The Owner

In 1991 I opened a jewelry manufacturing company in Albuquerque. After 22 years of success, it's about time to start a new career path. The VRBO experience has been very fulfilling. I have enjoyed meeting all the guests from around the world. Movie producers from France and other parts, a university professor from Germany stayed six months, twice now, and one couple decided to stay and live at one of furnished the single family homes. They have been there three years now.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Silver Hill

The location of Silver Hill Casita makes it the ideal starting point for an Albuquerque experience. It is set in a walkable, well established neighborhood just a couple blocks from UNM campus and Presbyterian Hospital No busy roads to navigate to get to the places popular among the locals. And if you have one too many. You can always stroll home.

What makes this cottage unique

Super comfy queen sized bed. Full chefs kitchen with the necessary appliances and utensils. A gas grill for the big BBQ's. The owner loves to garden. So if you visit in season, prepare to have lots of fresh tomato salads!

Over priced and not very comfortable

  • 2 of 5

The pictures of the space looked great on the website. The layout of the house was very awkward. The lighting in the bedroom was unusabale. The bedroom has little to no room to relax in .We had little to no privacy in the rental as there was not adequate window coverings for the space. I would not recommend this property for the price. Overall it was a very uncomfortable space. The furniture was too big for the living space. My wife banged her head on one of the tables and I left home with some bruises on my legs from hitting the furniture. We would've been better off had we stayed at a hotel for the same price.

Owner's Response: James clearly does not understand the home sharing experience. He never let me know any of his numerous complaints until this review he wrote. I suggest reading the previous reviews that are extremely positive. Now to delve into his issues. In the bedrooms I have blackout shades and have black out draperies. There is a chandelier in the bedroom that casts plenty of light. The living room has a huge window with a shade that pulls down for privacy. The room that he is complaining that doesn't have a shade is the kitchen. And I haven't put in a shade in the kitchen because it looks over the garden. It's highly unlikely someone's in the garden, among the dirt and flowers looking in. If that were the case I would suggest calling the police, LOL All the other reviews commented how the pictures are exactly as they found the home. James was obviously not looking to find an historic, restored 1908 home to stay in. Good luck James in finding a hotel room with a chefs kitchen and a lovely patio and garden right outside the door. He obviously has more issues than I can comment on in this reply. Come stay at the Casita. Its your oasis in Albuquerque.

A Charming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property. The gardens are amazing. The house is well-equipped and spotless; comfortable bed, cozy living room, fluffy towels, great kitchen and supplies (utensils, spices, oil, etc. ad inf.), lots of plugs and good wifi service, efficient heat and air. Excellent washer and dryer...all the conveniences of home in a vacation environment. And birds galore.

The neighborhood was quiet even though it's in the heart of the university district and we were there during graduation week. We saw a super fireworks show at the stadium nearby, it was great. The location is convenient to seeing all the attractions in Albuquerque and for venturing off to surrounding sites, such as Santa Fe.

Doug is very personable and helpful.

I would return in a minute if I didn't have other destinations on my bucket list. It was even more than I anticipated. Don't hesitate to rent this property!

Charming and comfortable

Our stay at the Silver Hill casita was everything we hoped it would be. The description and photos are accurate---it is cozy, clean and comfortable. Doug is professional, responsive and helpful. The property is beautifully maintained and the location is convenient. We slept great. We'll be back.
