average rating of 4.9 based on 40 reviews

Perfect get away Casita to relax and enjoy the many activities around Corrales and Albuquerque !

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have picked a better place to stay for our trip to the Balloin fiesta! Casita is nestled in front of a beautiful apple orchard. Very private and relaxing. Gary and Melissa have equipped their beautiful place with everything anyone would need. We loved all of the native decor. We really enjoyed both patios and walking around the grounds! Gary was so easy to communicate with upon our arrival and made things so easy. We will definitely be coming back next year and hope we can reserve this place again! One of our perfect trips! Thanks Gary and Melissa!

Excellent and relaxing place to stay! A+

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful rental property with a great floor plan and big, well-kept yard. Everything was super clean and we even got a welcome basket with some wine and chocolates. Fully-equipped kitchen, nice outdoor grill and patio seating. There is plenty of parking, including a covered carport. The street in front of the house has hardly any traffic so it's great for bike riding or walking. The river is a short walk away. Plenty of opportunity for bird watching and nature hikes. Highly recommended, we would stay here again!!!

Charming, peaceful, quiet and clean! Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Would give this place 1,000 stars if I could. It has the quintessential old Corrales feel and is so quiet and peaceful. Very comfortable, clean, and so charming. It was hard to leave. This will be our first choice when we come back to the Abq area. My husband and I came down for a graduation and brought my parents. The bedrooms are separated on opposite ends of the house - close enough but far enough apart to accommodate different sleep schedules. House is well appointed and could not be any cuter. The pictures don't do it justice.

Spent quite a bit of time on the back patio enjoying coffee and listening to the birds - even got a visit from a prairie hawk. We will definitely be back!

San Antonio, TX

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I can’t imagine we could have asked for more. We walked almost every morning along the Bosque near the Rio Grande. The Casita was comfortable, clean and very well stocked. A real plus was collecting fresh eggs from the chicken coop on the property. Gary, the owner was always available and accommodating on the few occasions we needed him. We visit Corrales at least once a year, and hope availability will coincide with our next visit.

Captures essence of New Mexico farm

  • 4 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay here. Nicely tucked into the Bosque (Woods) near the Rio surrounded by beautiful trees. We enjoyed being close to shopping and restaurants yet we enjoyed coming back to the bucolic neighborhood of ranches and farms. The owner was very responsive to all of our requests.

Great location, great home, and great hospitality by Gary. My wife and I would go run by the Rio Grande. Local restaurants all around. Just an all around great experience.
