Why Mr. Michael Aragon chose Rio Grande Blvd

At its heart is Old Town, just minutes from Casa La Huerta, the site where the original city was founded in 1706. Cobblestone streets and adobe walls characterize this neighborhood where Native American and Spanish cultures still mingle. You'll also find a certain level of kitsch, deposited from the hey-day of US Route 66 that runs through the heart of town. The downtown area's décor consists of neon signs and funky souvenir shops. Head farther out and you'll find expansive homes and lush vineyards in the North Valley, where Casa La Huerta is located, and Cottonwood Heights.

Albuquerque stays true to its roots. Hispanic flavors can be found in many of the city's restaurants (prepare for the ear-popping heat of New Mexico's favorite ingredient, the chile pepper). Native American arts and crafts adorn many a gallery window. But despite its old age—the city celebrated its 300th birthday in 2006—Albuquerque is nothing short of cosmopolitan, boasting funky boutiques, top-notch performance venues and exciting nightlife. To top it all off, the city's proximity to the stunning Sandia Mountains makes it a great home base for Southwest discovery.

What makes this house unique

Casa La Huerta was originally constructed in the late 1890's and was enlarged to its current configuration in the 1930's. It is therefore not configured like a modern home or hotel. It has abundant character and charm reflective of New Mexico, and is very much a historic showcase of what a modest family home in New Mexico was like in the late 1800's. This is what our guests rave about and enjoy, and what makes Casa La Huerta a special place and a very successful vacation rental. We take pride in delivering a clean, sanitary, safe, functional, well maintained and comfortable vacation residence that represents an unbeatable value for money.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

I lived in Albuquerque several years ago and love to revisit the area. Will return to Casa La Huerta on my next visits. Michael was very accommodating by providing all of the necessary information regarding the house and the surrounding areas. We even used his restaurant recommendation in Santa Fe and it was fantastic!

The house is very close to the Rio Grande Nature center, which is a lovely place to walk. The location is centrally located and the neighborhood is quiet.

Absolutely perfect vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first stay at a VRBO rental and it could not have been better. I arrived after midnight but had been given perfect instructions on how to enter the property. The property is perfectly maintained and had every possible amenity. I immediately felt right at home. It is centrally located in a very quiet neighborhood. My only disappointment is that I couldn't stay longer. I live in Boston and this stay inspired me to spend more time in Albuquerque....at Casa La Huerta!

This place was beyond my expectations. Comfortable, expansive, well equipped, convenient location, beautiful!!! And, what an incredible deal. Michael was accommodating and helpful. I can't recommend this place enough. We'll definitely be returning. Whether you are new to VRBO or a frequent quest, you'll love this place.

We recently enjoyed a 3-day stay here. This is the second time we have stayed at Casa La Huerta. The house and grounds around it are very well kept. Check-in and check-out was easy. We enjoy the quiet neighborhood. It is within walking distance to a coffee shop and the Nature Center where there is a nice walking trail along the Rio Grande. We did rent a car to visit other areas around the city. There are many excellent restaurants in this area know as the North Valley. We hope to visit New Mexico again and we would definitely stay here again.
