    Amazing Albuquerque Home!!

    Let me start by saying...from the pictures for this property we knew it was going to be great. What we got, once we arrived, far exceeded our expectations!! The owners have gone to great lengths to make their home welcoming, comfortable, relaxing...and well...just feel like home. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to another visit to Albuquerque. For that next visit, we will definitely look for this home and hope it is available. -Ernesto

There was nothing that we needed. Carol & her family went above and beyond to make certain that our stay was perfect. Response to any question was done in a very timely manner.

Clean and convenient, plenty of space with everything you need to "live" away from home for a comfortable vacation. It was easy to book and quite reasonable. We will book through VRBO again for sure. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to NM!

    We stayed at Casa Margarita while in ABQ for our daughter’s wedding. We had a large group and the space was just perfect to visit or chill away from the chaos if needed. The beds were very comfortable. We had everything we needed to keep our grandkids (ages 1 and 9) occupied too. Having the garage and carport space allowed the children to run around as they like to do. The washer and dryer were very handy. The only downside I would say is that one of the bathrooms has a deep jacuzzi tub which is harder for the older guests to get in and out of. I hope to stay at this lovely home again on our next stay.

    I booked this property for the Balloon Fiesta 2014 for 5 guests. It was the perfect amount of space and we really enjoyed using both the main house and the casita. Everything in the description is accurate and the house is well-supplied with all the necessities and then some. The outside space is very private but you don't feel boxed in. We loved hanging out in the dining room and laughing. There is plenty of covered parking. Carol was very helpful and responsive during the booking and I even got to meet her due to some random timing. She is very nice. We had one minor problem which ended up not really being a problem (water from heavy rains was messing with the remote mechanisms for the garage) but it was responded to immediately. The only drawback we found was the awkwardness of the central bathroom. The setup for the shower curtain confused us but we made it work. Besides, we had two other shows to use. I used to live in Albuquerque and knew this was the part of town I wanted to stay in. You can walk to so much but driving and parking are not a problem, either. So couple a great location with a lovely property and it is a win/win for any visitor to ABQ.

    Excellent place to stay in ABQ.

    We have rented homes in Cape Cod, Paris, Orlando, LA, and more places. This is by far one of my favorite home rentals! There is a reason why this home has such high ratings and wonderful reviews! As soon as we pulled up, I smiled from ear to ear! Upon opening the front door, I was immediately disappointed that I had only rented for three nights; I wish we had rented for a whole week! Every detail you can imagine has been done here! Carol is a wonderful hostess with a great eye! The layout of the home (master at the back...privacy for mom and dad...yay!) is spectacular! The outside courtyard area is so nice. Also, the use of the garage games/toys for kids is a nice touch (washer and dryer are there as well). There is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy! The location of the home is wonderful! The Nob Hill area is cute and quaint! There are great restaurants, a park, and even the "spaceship homes" all around the corner! I will rent this home again! You will not regret renting this home! I still can't believe the homeowner offers this wonderful property at such an economical rate. Do yourself a favor and stop looking at any other properties...you've found your perfect vacation rental!

    This is the second time I've stayed at Casa Margarita -- and it's my first choice in Albuquerque. I can't imagine any place being more inviting, pleasant, clean, comfortable, and overall livable. Master bedroom is spacious and bed is great. Second and third bedrooms have plenty of room and are also comfortable. Bathrooms are newly renovated. Kitchen is great for cooking. All you need! Lovely dining room adjacent to big living room with large screen TV. Decor is tasteful. I sent photos back to friends in NY to make them jealous. Great, quiet neighborhood, near great restaurants -- walking distance. Whole Foods and Sprouts Market nearby. And the best thing about it is dealing with Carol, the owner. She is delightful, upbeat, helpful, and flexible. In my opinion, and I'm extremely picky, you can't do better.

    We had a very nice time in this house. My favorite thing is the location. It's on a residential street fairly close to UNM. It's easy to go anywhere from here. I enjoyed walking around the block and looking at the Sandia mountains and a very unusual, arty house nearby. Casa Margarita is cute, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen is good, and the living room and dining room are great places to hang out. I highly recommend staying here.

    Casita Margarita could not be more charming and comfortable. It's beautifully, tastefully decorated and perfectly maintained. Kitchen and bathrooms appear to be recently, and exquisitely, renovated. In fact the entire house has a unique feeling of being a classic casita that's totally up to contemporary needs and standards. The kitchen has everything you need to make just about any kind of meal you want. The bedrooms are spacious, the beds are high end, there's a TV in the master bedroom and a large screen TV in the living room (a great place to hand out). Both TVs have cable. Internet was fast and easy to use. Importantly, the house is on an extremely safe and quiet block in a great neighborhood. It's just a short walk or quick drive to a commercial area with a ton of great restaurants... plus there's a Whole Foods and great shopping just minutes away. But the house itself is in a totally residential area. Nob Hill is THE PLACE to stay in Albuquerque. And to top it all off, the owner, Carol, was an absolute dream to work with. She was totally responsive to all questions I had up front. The communication was fast, easy and comprehensive. And when I needed to extend my stay, and she didn't have the availability I needed, she helped me research other options. Talk about going above and beyond! Bottom line -- I consider myself an extremely tough critic when it comes to accomoodations... and I can safely say that Casita Margarita is first class all the way.

    We were fortunate to get to stay at Casa Margarita during the Balloon Festival. We were 7 adults, the house was great we each had our own space, and the living , dining area was a great place for us all to gather. I loved that there was some basic cooking ingredients there, that we could use. Loved the fact that there was coffee left for us!! Great location, we ate at the frontier restaurant, quite an experience, and Thai Vegan which was great, Home is in a great location, quiet, nice neighborhood, but many places you can walk to. Super house for a large number of people, hope to return some day. Carol was easy to work with, if you're looking for a traditional New Mexican home in a great area with a number of people, Casa Margarita is the place for you.

    Five of us siblings & spouses were in Albuquerque for a family wedding and Carol's place provided perfect home-away-from-home for 6 nights. We found the place immaculate. We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen would have been more than adequate to prepare meals for our group. The house was within easy walking distance to many wonderful restaurants. We felt safe walking home after dinner several nights. One of us stayed in the casita and it was delightful and modern. Carol was very thoughtful in changing the door lock combination to one of our phone numbers! We would stay here again next time we visit Albuquerque.

    Great little house. Very comfortable and well appointed. Very clean and well supplied. Wonderful private courtyard. The owner was easy to contact, pleasant to work with and quick respond to any question or concern. The neighborhood was convenient to local businesses and the airport, yet quiet and quaint. Family members took walks each morning to different surrounding areas and almost always found something interesting. I would stay there again and I would recommend to anyone. Thank you Carol for making what was a special trip all that much the better. :)

    We loved our stay at Carol's property. The house was impeccably clean, comfortable and warmly decorated. They had everything you can possibly need on your vacation. Our multi-generation family had plenty of room, and we felt like we were home away from home. We also loved the back bedroom because my 8 month old baby did not interrupt my mom and aunt early in the morning. This property is centrally located to most things Albuquerque has to offer. We particularly enjoyed getting our morning coffee at Michael Thomas Cafe, which is located within 15 min walk from the house. It was a pleasure to deal with Carol, and she was very helpful with all my inquiries. I would highly recommend this property for your stay in Albuquerque. We are planning on coming back next year and hopefully Carol's house will be available for us then.

    My siblings and I gathered for a family reunion with our New Mexican cousins. Rather than staying separately in hotel rooms we opted to share this home. What a great decision it was! Plenty of baths, rooms for each of us and a thoughtfully stocked kitchen made our stay homey and relaxing. We were only minutes from the airport and highways, yet you would never know from the peaceful neighborhood we stayed in. Historic Route 66 was a walk away with restaurants, shopping and so on. We loved staying at Casa Margarita and look forward to future stays.

    This is an exceptional property with everything you need in a vacation rental, all within walking distance of the best restaurants in Nob Hill. The details in the listing are spot on, the layout of the house makes it both comfortable and easy to accommodate couples, families and a wide variety of traveling partners. Plus it is located in a very nice neighborhood which makes it not only convenient to the Nob Hill shops on Central but also a wonderful place for a morning or evening stroll. If we were ever moving to ABQ we would be quite happy to find a place like this for a permanent residence! Finally, the property owners are attentive, easy to reach on the phone, there if you need them and yet non-obtrusive. We will definitely look to rent again on our next trip to ABQ. Highly recommended!!!

    This property was located in a safe neighborhood, with good restaurants within walking distance. (We particularly enjoyed Zinc.) Although we did not use it, there is a detached casita allowing a good sized group stay. We stayed in this property for a month looking for a house for ourselves. As for ABQ, it is the friendliest city we have been in and we have sampled many, both in the US and abroad. We recommend both a visit to ABQ and the rental of this property. By the way, the owner of this property has a second property in Nob Hill. Although we were not in side, it looks equally appealing and has the same location benefit.

    Pros: Great location, close enough to attractions but in a safe and historic neighborhood. Two car garage added to the security of the place. Very clean Had everything we needed and an enclosed back patio where the kids could play. Nicely decorated. Cons Bathrooms are small and in one bathroom the shower head is really low. The property is advertised as a place for 8 people but that's only with the increased price of the detached casita. The system is not clear about this so we had our group of 8 stay in the main house adding an inflatable mattress for one set of kids. A sleeper sofa in the living could have easily solved this, however, the owner was willing to reduce the price since we would not be using the casita. Overall, it was a very nice stay. Beats a hotel for money we paid and we were very comfortable.

There are restaurants in walking distance and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. The house was surprisingly well stocked, including the little things you hate to buy when you travel like spices and saran wrap. The owner was really conscientious. We'd gladly stay again!!

    My family stayed at this property for the week of my daughter's wedding in Albuquerque. There were five of us in the house itself and two in the detached suite, which is a low-cost optional add-on when renting the property. The house itself, the detached suite, and the charming private courtyard were meticulously restored, clean, comfortable and welcoming. I have stayed at numerous rental properties over the years, and this one combines the clean freshness of the "this is a nice beach house" (or in this case, Southwestern casita) with the hominess characteristic of a well loved family home without the cold cliche of the former or the sometimes dinginess of the latter. Casa Margarita seemed to be decorated with art and furnishings chosen because someone loved them, rather than because the painting matches the sofa. The beautiful residential location in the Nobb Hill area was close to a number of restaurants and provided easy access to the commercial and natural attractions in and around the city. Carport, garage, and gated concrete parking places are available. The owners were helpful and responsive to our questions and needs before during and after our stay. Our confirmation email contained an extensive listing of nearby restaurants, sights, and activities compiled by the owner. During a happy but very hectic occasion, the home provided space for rest, relaxation, and entertaining of family. Top notch!

We found this to be an ideal area because of proximity to the airport for the multiple trips we needed to make, close to good grocery stores and a wonderful area for walking. We have rented several homes through VRBO and found Carol, the owner, to be one of the best we have dealt with. We are planning on renting the house for future trips.

    Our stay in the Nob Hill area of Albuquerque was great. The neighborhood was nice and within walking distance to a good amount of nice restaurants. The university and Old Town were a short bike ride or drive away. We had a family gathering and the house easily accommodated our needs, and provided private places for everyone to retreat to. We used the courtyard for dining, which was a nice added extra. Everything was smoothly handled, and we will use the home again. Thanks for a nice place to stay.

    Nice House, Great Spot

    We stayed for about 4 days with 3 teenage children. The house was located perfectly for us near a vibrant part of town near UNM. The house is well outfitted and comfortable and the process of booking etc. was all very smooth. By well-outfitted I mean sat tv with dvr, wifi, well-equipped kitchen, books, comfy chairs-- all nicely done. Here's our only nit: We were lucky to be in Albuquerque during a beautiful weather spell, and we were disappointed to learn that the owner does not want guests to open the windows of the house. The refrigerated air system in the house is very effective, so the temperature was fine, but we missed having the evening breeze through the house. (We can appreciate the owner's position because the windows are original to the house and would not stand up to usage patterns of people unfamiliar with how they work.) All in all, a very good experience all around, and a great value for a traveling family. Highly recommended.

    The home is right near the New Mexico campus and is in a safe and easy to access neighborhood only a few minutes from the Airport. There is plenty of night life, restaurants and nearby stores (food/drug store/etc) in the area as well. The house was very clean, well cared for and nicely furnished. The Master Suite above the garage was quite nice. The size of the house was perfect for our usage, though I was happy we also reserved the Master Suite as it provided an extra bedroom and an additional full bath. I would recommend this to property to family and friends and should I have the need to go back to Albuquerque I would be more than happy to stay here again. The owner was quite helpful in providing information about the area and the property. The owner was also very accommodating on getting things we needed for our stay, such as a pack and play. Additionally, the owner very promptly returned the deposit and was in contact both during and after our stay to make sure we had everything we needed.

    Very comfortable for 5 women who needed to focus on doctoral studies for the month of July. Within walking distance of UNM, quiet, safe, residential area. We enjoyed the bbq grill and the secluded patio area. When the porch light went out, we called, and it was taken care of immediately. Would recommend to anyone who would like to have a home away from home, for any reason!

The location is perfect for visiting old town, all the museums, Sandia Tramway, and Santa Fe is only one hour away. Thanks, Carol, for letting us use your home! p.s.

    We loved our stay at Casa Margarita. We were close to the zoo, Explora, and the History and Science museum. We enjoyed being close to UNM where we fed the ducks at the duck pond. The house was beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay (kitchen utensils, towels, bedding, etc.). The garage and laundry were also very convenient. We would recommend this house to anyone staying in Albuquerque and hope that we get to visit again! We were concerned if the neighborhood would be safe, and we felt very safe there.

    Four of us, including myself, stayed at Casa Margarita for three weeks while our work was in town. We absolutely loved the house: it was extremely welcoming, comfortable, and homey. We are constantly traveling on the road, and are usually in hotels or extended stays, so it felt wonderful to feel like we could come back to a real home after work every night. The place was amazing for (safe and clean!) entertaining, and everyone that stopped by commented on how much they loved being at the place. Everything provided in the kitchen was a great supply for every entertaining need, and it looked great, too! The backhouse was also thoroughly enjoyed by the friend who occupied that area, and she felt it was convenient despite the fact that she had to walk a few yards to the kitchen every morning :) Even though it was so much more exTREMely cold (negative 9 degrees!!!) while we were staying in Albuquerque, the four of us didn't even mind as we were having a lovely time in the warm Casa Margs (as we called it.) Carol was very helpful during the Albu "cold crisis" and right there on hand to help out with anything we needed. We loved that in close walking distance was a wonderful (albeit expensive, but cute!) Coop, a Lulu Lemon, a great Satellite coffee where we could go sit and read or work on our computers, a Yarn store (where I went CRAZY), and an Urban Outfitters, among many other great stores and locations. Also- THANK YOU for having recycling available at the house! All in all, the beds and bedrooms were very comfortable, the house clean and accessible, and we would recommend this place to anyone coming through Albuquerque!

    What a treat. My husbandand I had the pleasure of staying in at this contemperary and cozy vaction rental. We loved being in the middle of the city with every convenience within walking distance from restaurants & bars to great shopping. The remodesl/upgrades done to this house gave us the feeling like we were on a European vacation, from lighting and tiled bathrooms to the brick and lighted patio. The jet tub is amazingly comfortable and is where I spent most of my time. We didn't have to go to a store for anything other then food. Thank you to the property managers for helping us get our questions answered. We would love to come visit again soon.

    We spent two weeks around Christmas in Casa Margarita with our family of six. The house had everything that we needed including flawless internet. Carol went out of her way to accomodate us, and help was around the corner when we had questions. Don't look for a hotel, this is so much better. Even though the weather was unusually cold, the house was very comfortable and warm. The kids enjoyed all the TV channels that we don't have at home, as well as the jet tub. We made and enjoyed breakfasts and dinners in the house many times. The house has a two-car garage in the back. Certainly a place to come back to!

    We just loved Casa Margarita! We recently spent a week in this wonderful old Casa and the Web site does not do it justice. We met up with family from other states for a mini holiday reunion. The neighborhood is quiet, yet really fun. It was fun to walk Kellys Brew Pub, Flying Star restaurant, and Zinc restaurant and wine bar, which had live music. We walked to Nob Hill and enjoyed the holiday strolling and shopping. Our group had differing interests, so while some went sightseeing by car, others walked up the street, hopped on the bus to the train station, and rode the Roadrunner train to Santa Fe. It was a great day for all. Even though the days were unusually cold, we cooked steaks on the outdoor grill as the patio is enclosed and protected from the elements. The kids really enjoyed playing their video games on the large screen TVs and watching DVDs to relax at night. We were comfortable and the house was beautiful. The property mangers, Jonathan and Raquel, were friendly and helpful (thanks for the suggestions of things to do with kids!). We can't wait to come back next holiday season!

I was really happy with all the extras it has we barbecued the first night which was absolutely awesome it was really quite and nice to be able to sit outside. The second night it rained so we decided to cook and bake inside it was so nice how it was like being at home me and my daughters baked cookies and had everything we needed from mixers to quality bake ware. And the jet tub was also very nice to take advantage of.I would recommended this house it's very close to everything we were able to run to the grocery store and rent movies within a block or so and the take advantage of the convenience of feeling comfort like home.

    Casa Margarita enabled us to experience our most enjoyable visit to Albuquerque, yet. We felt "at home", and were able to get a sense of living in the neighborhood. We appreciated having coffee and tea on hand, being able to have a leisurely breakfast, utilizing leftovers (from Scalo's) and having room to relax at our homebase for exploration of New Mexico. No surprises - this property is as advertised: comfortable, clean, convenient and just what we expected. Carol is an outstanding owner and informative promoter of the area, offering an excellent property. There was nothing that we needed or wanted that wasn't provided for in La Casa. We highly recommend Casa Margarita to discriminating travelers, and will return on our next visit to Albuquerque.

We have stayed in other non-hotel settings where there is a lack of kitchen equipment and the like or it is schlocky. Not here. All you need is here and of good quality. We had a great stay.

A comprehensive welcome folder contained everything we needed to know about the local area shops, restaurants and attractions, and there were even details on things like which light switch does what! The local area is very peaceful but within easy walking distance of many shops and restaurants along Central Avenue. This was our first visit to New Mexico and we were delighted by the combination of dramatic scenery, powerful history, walkable streets, great food and unexpected wildlife. The birdwatchers among us were delighted to see roadrunners in the front garden! Altogether an ideal Spring Break with the family in a location that can't be faulted. We were very impressed and look forward to returning in the near future.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Margarita. My husband was in ABQ for work so I brought our two kids (2 and 5 mos) and my mom to visit for a few days. We had the house plus Casita and it was just perfect. The house is gorgeous and lovingly decorated and cared for. The location is perfect with a school with two playgrounds one block away. You are also an easy walk to Nob Hill and all the action there. We walked to and from a date night with no problems at all. The house is in a very eclectic, interesting neighborhood with lots of historic old houses and one very funky one that looks like a spaceship! The house was furnished very comfortably and had everything we needed for our stay, to include sippy cups and pack n play and high chair for the kids. The trundle bed was perfect for our toddler and there was plenty of space in the house for us to all spread out. Carol has tons of information in the house and instructions for everything as well as heaps of takeout menus. She was also very responsive to all of our communications and came over in no time to fix the wobbly dining room table that she wasn't aware of. The Casita was gorgeous and a perfect space for my mom to have some privacy but still be there with us. We had zero complaints and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Thank you Carol and Ken!

    A close trio of long time friends, we're mothers and grandmothers who can barely ever get away for ourselves so when we finally pulled off an escapade to New Mexico we had a lot riding on our rare free time. Walking into Casa Margarita, I am not exaggerating to say that we nearly cried with joy at how enchanting, lovely, comfortable and yes, absolutely spotless, the house was upon our arrival. We also scored the dreamy casita as extra space, and were enlivened by the rooftop views, light, and openness. Casa Margarita is even better in real life than in the enticing photos. We all remarked to each other on our first morning how well we slept there, how this was unusual since we all usually have a hard time sleeping in a new place, the mattresses were exceptional. Carol's thoughtful and extensive recommendations also were spot on for us to plan our time when not at the extraordinary event, Gathering of Nations Powwow. We also loved the Nob Hill neighborhood, part of the fun was fantasizing living there!! We left each other and Casa Margarita for our various home destinations, feeling grateful, renewed, inspired, and energized. Thank you, Carol!!
