The house is within 5-10 minutes driving from LANL (8 min to LANL badge office), walking distance to the downtown restaurants and grocery store. The movie theater, library, museums, swimming pool, ice skating rink, fitness center, playground, hospital and trails are minutes away. Close to the exit to Santa Fe.

A spacious living room opens up to a family room, which could be a 3rd bedroom, play room or a great office. 

A large eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking and entertaining. It is complete with a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and a mixer. It is stocked with coffee, tea, cooking oil. 

The master bedroom has a Queen bed, the second bedroom has a twin bed and a sofa bed that unfolds into a comfortable full bed. In the family room there is a sofa bed, which unfolds into a full bed. Please note, that currently there are no doors between the family and the living rooms, thus the family room offers plenty of space but no privacy for the sleeping arrangements.

The bed linens, duvet covers, and towels are provided. In the closets you will find extra towels, sheets, blankets, pillows.

The washer and dryer are located in the kitchen. Complimentary laundry supplies are provided. We care about our guests with sensitivities, and always provide unscented detergent for all your laundry needs. We also carry a scented version for those who like to add fragrance to their laundry. In a bedroom closet you will find a full sized ironing board and an iron.

The house features wall murals and a fireplace with a wood burning stove insert. In summer, enjoy coffee and meals outside on a shady patio overlooking backyard landscaped with fruit trees, berries, and herbs (which guests are welcome to take advantage of!)

The house provides an ample parking space in front and to the side of the house, between two fences (can fit an RV or a boat).

Most of the houses on the street are occupied by the former or present LANL employees, offering a safe and family friendly environment. Some of the neighbors are truly the real living treasures of Los Alamos, who will be happy to tell you about the early years of the atomic town.
