Albuquerque, New Mexico
Named 'Heaven's Gate' (La porte du ciel) by a priest who lived here for many years, the small house maintains its original footprint. It is a recently completed restoration of a late 1800s adobe house that follows a traditional 19th century 'shot gun' layout. It features a totally new kitchen, 'wet room' shower and a central air conditioning/heating unit. It is the second of a 4 home 19th century family compound that is part of an on-going restoration project located in Albuquerque's Old Town area. It has a small front entry yard and a private backyard patio that is accessed through the hand painted bedroom door. The original separated bathrooms have been converted into a laundry house.

Loved the yummy empanadas left for us for breakfast. All the conveniences of home were at our fingertips. We loved the location! A park directly across from the casita was perfect to walk our small dog. A 5 minute walk to beautiful Old Town offered great restaurants, shops, museum etc. The bathroom and shower were smaller than we thought, but we managed nicely. Outside light of tthe laundry room was distracting when sleeping as the light shone directly thru the glass back door in the bedroom. The glass on this door was beautifully stenciled, but a room darkening roll down shade on the door would be beneficial for those who prefer a dark room to sleep.

Management response:

Thank you for the suggestion about the shade. The light, a dusk to dawn, was intended to provide a safety path for using the laundry but perhaps the time it is on should be adjusted. We appreciate the feedback so the next guest might be more comfortable.
