About

The Desert Compass is a boutique vacation rental property in Old Town Albuquerque with 6 unique guest suites. It is the perfect place to gather, relax, and celebrate with friends and family. Our property features lush gardens, adobe architecture, a modern desert backdrop, and a blank canvas where you can design an event, retreat, or gathering that is as unique as you are.

If you desire an intimate and memorable place to celebrate your love and commitment with your closest family and friends, The Desert Compass features a lush garden area that can host intimate backyard-style weddings and elopements, as well as bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, baby showers, and honeymoons. Family members or bridal parties can conveniently stay at the property, which hosts up to 25 overnight guests in our 6 suites. With a property buyout of The Desert Compass, you have private access to the property for small weddings or private events of up to 25 guests (including overnight guests).

Historic Old Town Albuquerque is just steps away, and full of incredible cultural experiences for your guests as they wander around the historic plaza, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants. Your group can gather, relax, and celebrate together at our historic property, and then take in the sights around Historic Old Town.

Looking for something even more simple, intimate, and budget conscious? We offer elopement packages for up to 10 guests that include a 2 night stay in our dreamy honeymoon suite.
