Tiny but wonderful

The casita is a gem! What originally sold us about the unit was the enclosed courtyard...perfect for our dog , Banks, and for drinks in the afternoon. The kitchen had all the necessities when we wanted to cook at home. The bed was comfy, but be prepared...the shower is small! My 6'3" husband needed to duck to enter! 

The location is walking distance to all of Old Town, with wonderful restaurants, coffee shops and shops. Most importantly, Phyllis and Rob are great hosts! So friendly and helpful...and patient with Banks! We hope to have the opportunity to stay there in the future! Thanks Phyllis and Rob!  3/29/2022 at 7:54 AM


I LOVED saying at LaPerla!! This is probably the best place I’ve stayed in through VRBO or Air B&B. Location is great and just off the interstate and the casita was so comfortable. It had everything we needed for our 5-night trip. Bed is comfortable with a variety of pillow types and towels & sheets are soft. Phyllis is a very kind host and Aggie provides friendly company.

Response to Debbie's review: Debbie and her son were delightful guests. They were good communicators, cordial and left the guesthouse neat and clean. We hope they will visit again!

Absolutely Wonderful

We highly recommend this beautiful casita. The owners are very friendly and welcoming.

Frequent guests from 2018 to 2021. 

Charming, comfortable, convenient

We recently returned from a month's stay at La Perla. I can't imagine more charming, comfortable, or convenient accommodations. The casita is immaculate and well-stocked, the setting is quiet and private, and the location is within walking distance of several museums and good restaurants. The hosts, Phyllis and Rob, are delightful and very helpful with suggestions on where to shop, what restaurants to try, and information about the neighborhood...We look forward to our next stay at La Perla. Frequent long-term guests from 2012 to 2022

Wonderful pet friendly

We are traveling and getting ready to move into new house. Great hospitality and our dog loved running around a yard. Also most comfortable bed. Host's response: The dogs had such fun! If only moving were that much fun! Welcome back to Albuquerque! Nov., 2019

Perfect Location!

My dog and I were lucky to spend a week in this wonderful place! Very comfortable and well-appointed... I work from home and had great connectivity and there's even a printer. Phyllis is a wonderful host and the location can't be beat.. within a block of museums, a great park, and Old Town where you could spend days exploring the shops (very dog friendly!) and restaurants. We had a wonderful stay... can't wait to come back when the weather is nicer and we can spend more time in the beautiful courtyard. 3/31/2021 at 12:35 PM

Wonderful Stay 

Absolutely Wonderful. We highly recommend this beautiful casita. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. August, 2019


Great Old Town Getaway

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Casita in Old Town. The arrival process was seamless, including directions from our previous location in Santa Fe. The hosts were very friendly and helpful while remaining completely respectful of our privacy and space. The Casita was clean, quiet and well stocked with all the comforts of home. Instructions on the use of appliances and electronic devices were clear and reliable. The location was perfect for all the outdoor activities and meals we had planned. We were able to enjoy the outdoor spaces in front and back of the Casita day and night. We are sure you will have the same pleasant experience we had when you choose this location for your Albuquerque trip. May, 2019


Outstanding Choice for an ABQ stay

Lovely casita near Old Town with wonderful hosts. The property is exactly as described: clean, comfortable, well apportioned, and close to everything in ABQ. Location is a 10 minute drive from the airport and just a few minutes from major highways. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'll need for fixing your own meals (should you decide to avoid the many delicious eateries in the area), excellent wifi is available, and Phyllis has provided a plethora of travel and sightseeing brochures to suit any tastes. I found the bed and pillows very comfortable, much better than most hotel beds I've encountered (a big deal for me on vacation, especially after a long day of exploring). The neighborhood is safe and serene and within easy walking distance to Old Town.  I very much enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate to book this property again. April, 2019

Charming Casita     

 Our stay during the Balloon Fiesta was magical! Rob and Phyliss were the greatest hosts. Rob shared his tomato's straight from the garden, and it was a real treat to have a picnic lunch on the beautiful patio, with home grown tomato's...  We couldn't of been more pleased with the great location. Old Town was literally a few houses away... I can't forget to mention Aggie, (the lab) she was the sweetest dog, and loved to play catch. I wish I could give 10 stars, as this place surpassed our expectations. LaPerla is a little gem and I would highly recommend to all my family and friends.  Oct, 2018.   


BEST host and hostess ever! 

Beautiful, genuine casita!! Clean and well equipped and maintained for all our needs including that of a spoiled rotten golden retriever! Perfect location to walk to Old Town, parks, and museums... We would HIGHLY recommend this casita to anyone seeking serenity yet proximity to restaurants and shops. We will definitely stay there again when we travel to Albuquerque. Rob, Phyllis, and Aggie...again, thanks so much for the welcome and the perfect accommodations.  Aug, 2018


  A Slice of Albuquerque in a Special Home

    A warm visit with hosts Rob and Phyllis who provided everything we needed, and then

    more. A traditional adobe home, just perfect for two, with all the conveniences, with a        beautiful garden. We walked the one block to Old Town several times, for fun and food.

    Any time we return to the area, this is the place to call home for a few days. Oct, 2017

  Comfortable and pet friendly casita within walking distance

  of Old Town   

     Our overall experience was just fabulous. We loved the casita and how it provided all the             comforts of home. Also the owners could not have been any nicer. They tended to our

     every need with patience, kindness and a great sense of humor. They absolutely made us           feel comfortable the moment we met them...Phyllis and Rob are definitely in the right

     business, their people skills are a quality we all should have. I would return/recommend

     La Perla to all of my friends,family and acquaintances.   July, 2017.  


    Great place to stay!! You won't be disappointed!!!

​    We rented the month of March 2017. The home was everything we wanted, quiet, 

    comfortable bed, clean and not far to the bike trail. We were only two blocks from Old Town,

    a five minute walk to the park, restaurants, stores and museums. I felt very safe walking

    around Old Town and you meet people from all over the country. Phyllis and Rob were

    such great hosts!...Feb,,2017


Oasis in Albuquerque​ for Balloon Fiesta

Spotless and charming, La Perla is just steps from Old Town Albuquerque. Phyllis and Rob are gracious hosts and they made us feel right at home. Enjoyed our time in downtown as well as at the Balloon Fiesta and anyone who ventures this way should make sure to stop at Monroe's for some of their delicious green chile stew.  Oct., 2017
