If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Michaela and Ernesto were so warm and welcoming when we arrived! Their back yard was absolutely lovely with lots of beautiful plants and trees. It was a very relaxing and tranquil space with peace and quite. We enjoyed our stay!
The hosts were some of the nicest people we have ever met! Very open and flexible to accommodate our plans. A few locations to locate the tent. Very short drive to the Balloon Fiesta Park. Hope to come back.
GLBTQ Friendly. Tribal vibrations. Good people. Quiet neighborhood. we parked in their driveway, did yoga in the yard and enjoyed hot clean shower. Good landing space for Alburquerque.
Wow what a great place to stay
I was immediately welcomed with a hot cup of tea and great conversation buy a lovely couple obviously had traveled a lot themselves they knew how to treat somebody that had been on the road for a while
The location was perfect and peaceful
Mikaela and Ernesto made us feel at home and provided good suggestions on what we might want to see in Albuquerque. You will need a good mat as camping is on the gravel - we were leant one of theirs.
Michaela and Ernesto were wonderful hosts! The backyard was a beautiful place to set up camp and the inside of the home was clean and welcoming. Michaela and Ernesto gave us tips on what to do in the evening and we had a great time after following their advice. I would definitely stay here again!
