This is a quiet back apartment with it's own private entrance and fenced in (dog proof) shady patio area. The photo on our site shows the front of our house. You are welcome to sit out on this front patio as well and enjoy the mountain and park views. The apartment features exposed beams, rustic brick and ceramic tile floors. Apartment includes two large rooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom between them. The bathroom features an oversized soaking tub for relaxing. Bedroom features a SW style king sized bed. This room has a small TV and DVD player. TV picks up basic stations, I also provide some DVDs. Other room includes a very basic corner kitchenette and a comfortable full sized Ikea futon as well as an additional pull-out IKEA twinXL mattress on a spring. Kitchenette amenities include a microwave, small fridge, toaster, toaster oven, indoor electric grill, Keurig coffee maker and NuWave cook top.

In the case of a laundry emergency we can do a load of laundry for you in our house, upon request.

Atención a los huéspedes
This apartment is attached to our house and we do share an interior door, which is blocked by soundproofing material to provide greater privacy. Kevin and I are both university music professors(oboe and viola) and have much info to share about the arts and cultural scene as well as places of interest in Albuquerque and NM in general. Having said this, we are extremely busy during the academic year with our teaching and our professional performing careers. We are happy to help as needed, but may not be as available for interaction as some other hosts. It won't hurt our feelings if you are very independent and don't need any help from us! We also have two teenage boys who keep us busy with their many activities. Our oldest son has autism, and you might hear him humming from time to time or see him during your visit. He is a really good kid but he may not greet you as expected!
Otros aspectos destacables
We are musicians, so you may hear music coming through the walls: classical or jazz music played on oboe, viola, double bass, piano or bassoon. We only share one short wall, so it shouldn't disturb you.
We have 2 cats, Marley may greet you in the driveway. The cats do not have access to the apartment. This apartment area is throughly dog proofed with reinforced walls/security gates around the patio. We are very open to people bringing pets. Please try to keep your dogs off the beds and furniture if possible.
You may hear our older son, Alex, making vocalizations from time to time. We welcome families who may have members with special needs!
Please don't be too loud outside of the apartment late at night. This is a very quiet, affluent and established neighborhood. No smoking or drug use is allowed on the property. Please feel free to drink in moderation. We can recommend some good NM beers and wine.
Pets and kids are welcome!!
I am a professional classical musician and music professor, and so is my husband Kevin! We are from NY and Boston, but love our current hometown of Albuquerque. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, hot springs, horse back riding and good food/ wine. We maintain a very active lifestyle with our two teenage boys. We have travelled and performed extensively in Europe, South America and Africa.We love meeting new people!
