Would stay there again.

House was in a great location and was very nice. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was because we each had only one wash cloth for a weekend stay.

Owner's Response: I want to thank you for taking the time to write your review. We do not have daily maid service like you would find in a hotel. However, we do have a washing machine and dryer complete with detergent and bleach for guests who may need to use them. We do have additional linens that could be made available if we are made aware of anyones unique needs. It is unfortunate we were not aware of yours. Our goal is that our guests have the most enjoyable experience possible. I hope we are able to serve you again in the future. We will make sure you have plenty of washcloths. Thanks again.

Awesome Home and Views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home. It had everything we needed to feel at home. Wished it would have WiFi but maybe they will fix that. All the beds were comfortable and bathrooms were great! The whole family had a great time there and enjoyed it very much. Would recommend for anyone that wanted to have a fun time in Ruidoso.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Wi-fi, in our area, is only available through Windstream. We had this service for two years and it was terrible. The signal was intermittent, we went through four routers and the download speed would not stream video. Their answer was that was the best service possible for the area. We found that the Verizon service at our home was very good and just started using our phones as "hot spots". ATT has promised new satelite technology will be available in our service area, through Direct TV which we have for tv service, within one year. Our prayer is that this will be the answer. Again thank you for staying with us. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

Christmas 2016 Absolutely AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas this year in Ruidoso and absolutely LOVED this rental property! It was not only spacious, but it also has a beautiful view. Not to mention it was so easy to work with Randy, the owner, and Marissa, the property manager. The home accommodated all of us very well and we all just loved the big windows this home has. We woke up to a White Christmas morning and that view was just breathtaking. My family and I sat around the bar area on Sunday night before having to depart the next morning and discussed renting this place again next year. We hope this is the beginning of a long renting relationship with Randy. I would recommend this gorgeous home to anyone who is looking for a place in Ruidoso, NM or near Ski Apache.

Love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this home several times over the past couple of years, not only for family trips but for trips with friends and I have had a positive experience every time. Randy, the home owner, is awesome to work with, he is always quick to respond to my reservation request and has always made me feel like a friend rather than a customer. This house has an excellent entertaining space and is set up great for large or small groups. I absolutely love the view off the deck and always hate to leave when it's time to go. As long as this house is available for rent it will always be my first choice not only for the house itself but for the attention Randy gives as the home owner.

We met friends for the weekend with their families and all had an amazing time. Plenty of room for all 12 of us. Couldn't have picked a better place for us to all get together! This house is gorgeous! Already planning our next stay there.
