Our sunny New Mexico home has a ground floor, super comfortable room with a queen bed. We love hosting guests in our solar home and serving them a NM burrito before they start their day. We are a close drive to many beautiful NM destinations.

The space

Our home is in a quiet neighborhood with WiFi and a close drive to many attractions: Old Town, Albuquerque, Balloon Fiesta Park, Santa Fe, many state parks, Sandia Tram/Sandia Crest, Railrunner Train Stations, and much more! We live within a 5 minute drive from Walmart (where there is a bus stop), a movie theater and various restaurants.

The bedroom has a queen bed, two nightstands with lamps and shelves, a closet, table and chair, luggage rack and book shelves. The bedroom is next to the bathroom (shower, toilet and sink) and adjoins the family room and kitchen. There are 2 USB outlets in the bedroom.

We have a beautiful backyard and plenty of room to relax on the first floor, with the second floor for the host family's use only. Our home is part of a zoned "solar village" in Rio Rancho and has large contribution passive solar architecture with 2x6 construction.

The breakfast will consist of a NM style breakfast burrito and coffee, tea or juice. Please let us know of any allergies/preferences. We are able to accommodate gluten free guests. The burritos and drinks can be made 'to go', if needed.

We have plenty of equipment to accommodate children: pack n' play, high chair, Bumbo seat, walker, stroller, safety gate, lots of toys and even a swing set and playhouse in the backyard! We are empty-nesters, but have lots of this equipment for when our grandchildren visit.

John and Lora's place was just what I was looking for -comfortable bed, room to stretch out and relax, and great location in Rio Rancho. I only got to meet my hosts for a short period one night due to our busy schedules but they were fun to visit with and wanted to make sure my stay was going as planned. Burritos were an added bonus in addition to the fresh lemon for my water. Check out John's artwork-❤

Wow...just Wow!! Lora and John were amazing hosts! I unfortunately did not get the chance to meet them in person as I was out late with a friend. I so want to stay again so that we can meet in person! The communication from Lora was exceptional. The house was lovely, but waking up to some dark New Mexico coffee and a homemade breakfast burrito with my name on it was even more amazing. I highly recommend that you stay with Lora and John if you are passing through Rio Rancho or the Albuquerque area! Cheers!

Easy to communicate with and relaxing people and home. Can't go wrong staying here. Location was perfect for our needs having to go north and south from this location.

John and Lora are such great hosts. They communicated with me leading up to the stay and were so very hospitable. The room and sitting area is beautiful and so very cozy. Lora fixed a wonderful New Mexican burrito with green chili. I will definitely stay here again if I'm ever back in the area.
