About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Keywords: 3 bedroom split-level home with one bedroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms upstairs. Located on one acre in a rural farming/horse ranching community with spectacular, panoramic views from every window that are sure to take your breath away. Relax on the deck with a drink while watching the sunset and the twinkling lights turn on in the city below.

Location Highlights: Completely private and secluded retreat in a delightful environment. This rental is located at the top of a cul-de-sac with spectacular views in all directions, yet it is fifteen minutes from the Cottonwood mall, the largest mall in the ABQ metro area. You can see the majestic Sandia, the Manzano, and Sangre de Cristo mountains! It is 2 miles to the Corrales restaurant/art district.

The property has radiant, baseboard heat during winter months which makes for a very comfortable warmth in winter without the dryness - and air conditioning for the high desert summer months. The shades in the master bedroom can be lowered from the top for privacy, while enjoying the stunning views, or raised from the bottom. The huge outdoor deck has the best views of the city and valley below.

Living Room Highlights: There is a very large living room for entertaining & a well equipped full kitchen. The living room features a 42” screen TV, and the master bedroom has a smaller TV.

Master Bedroom/Bathroom Highlights: The master bedroom is large and bright with a spectacular view from the large bay window and a king size Select Comfort bed; the bathroom has a separate jetted tub and a large shower. A nice walk-in closet and shelves with room for all your belongings. Plenty of hangers. You can step outside the master bedroom balcony and view the valley below.

Second Bedroom downstairs: Queen Belmont Spinal Comfort mattress for a restful sleep. You’ll enjoy a view of the grassy backyard loaded with flowers and the fish pond from the bedroom window.

Third Bedroom/Office upstairs: Queen size mattress in this bedroom with a view of the orchard outside the window. A wireless router provided for easy internet access.

Outdoors Highlights: Enjoy a barbecue on the large deck as you watch the lights come up in the evening. If you're looking for the perfect getaway for a family vacation, or a multi-family get-together, this is the perfect house. You'll find everything you need here in the Corrales house. You will be thrilled with the extensive bird life such as quail, doves, roadrunners, hummingbirds, and rabbits. There is also a walking trail that you can access thru the back gate that leads to Rio Rancho.

About Stan & Sarah Guinn

Stan and I both grew up in Albuquerque, and except for 6 years that we lived in California, we've lived in New Mexico. We live in our house part of the time, and downtown Albuquerque the rest of the time so we like it to be neat and clean. We keep many of our personal items in the house to be used while we're here and for the enjoyment of our guests. We keep up the maintenance on it, and have a beautiful array of live plants both inside and out in the yard. We are situated on an acre of land with a fence around the property, which gives it a very private feel. The Corrales area is located in a farming community, yet outside the village is everything from the big box stores; Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, to the Cottonwood Mall, the Outback, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and Il Vicino restaurants - less than 4 miles away. There are also grocery stores like Sprouts Market and Albertson's close by. On the main street, Corrales Blvd., are local restaurants and specialty and antique shops. We have the best of both worlds at our doorstep.

Stan & Sarah Guinn purchased this house in 1993

Why Stan & Sarah Guinn chose New Mexico

We love the Corrales area because it feels very rural, yet outside of the village 10 minutes away are the largest mall, all the big box stores, restaurants, and antique stores at your doorstep.

What makes this house unique

We love to sit out on the deck in the evening and watch the lights come on. The view is spectacular and it never ceases to amaze us. We love to watch the birds and other animals as they visit and drink from the water in our pond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay. The house was fully up to our expectations and very nice.

I love the flora and fauna of the dry lands and staying in Corrales we got to see much that was of interest.

We especially enjoyed visits from your 'tame' roadrunner who seems to like roosting just over the deck. What a treat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay during the balloon festival. We sat on the deck one morning and watched the balloons launch. The deck had an amazing view. Sarah was very helpful during our stay. I will definitely stay here again.

Very quiet for being so close the Albuquerque.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and has everything you would need for you stay. You are just minutes away from just about anything you like to do, yet for the most part the property seems very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the late evening and looking out over the city.If you want to take a day trip to Santa Fe I highly recommend taking the New Mexico Railrunner. The driveway is interesting to negotiate the first couple of time but you get used to it. Overall we had a relaxing stay at the house and would stay here again if we are back in Albuquerque.

Great house, perfect location, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, comfortable, and easy to get to. It's in a perfect location, near restaurants, walking trails, and about 20 minutes to where ever you'd want to go in Albuquerque. The hosts were very helpful and provided some suggestions for things to do. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in town.

Wonderful views and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Sarah and Stan made my family feel very welcome. The kids, 4,10,and 13 loved the yard and the wild life. They played outdoors as much as time allowed. The home has many provisions and was well stocked. The views were amazing and enjoyed by all. We could not have picked a more perfect place for them to stay.

Clean, quiet and romantic setting, spectacular views, has what you need.

  • 5 of 5

The bunnies keep you company while you are sipping your morning coffee on the porch. The house is clean and it has what you need for an extended stay. We spent nine great days. The driveway is steep, but just pick up speed before you hit the last part and you will be OK. Bring your bikes. Corrales is great for biking. Challenge yourself to bike all the way back to the house again.

We recommend this house and would want to return ourselves in the future. It's a gem.

Owner's Response: The bunnies are always close by especially in the morning when you're taking in the view with a cup of coffee. Biking Corrales is a treat and also challenging when you are coming back up the hill. There's also a biking/walking trail behind the house. The driveway is worth the trip when you get to the top and take in the breathtaking view below. We welcome your return in the future.
