Very nice location in the trees!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! Lots of steep stairs so not a place for people with issues with those but our kids loved it them, the moms not so much! The bathrooms have all been recently redone and very modern....we just needed at least one bathtub. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again except our family is growing and it won’t accommodate us all!

Very beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home as a Christmas-getaway with family. The size of the home had the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms and the owners were very gracious in accommodating our dates. We loved the views and the fireplace, hot tub and pool table. We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in the hot tub, with it snowing outside and deer walking by. It was just lovely and the large windows provided excellent views. However, there were a few frustrations with the house. We planned on "staying in" and doing a lot of cooking for Christmas. Unfortunately the home does not have a "cook's kitchen". The appliances were dated and cooked unevenly, there was no blender, and the food processer we found in the pantry did not work, so we had to scramble to adjust our recipes. Also, this home is on a septic system that required special care. Since we were doing so much cooking, we had to wash a lot of dishes by hand, because we couldn't use dishwasher soap in the dishwasher. We had to use vinegar and the owners only left about 1/2 cup of vinegar in the house. We also had to provide our own paper goods...toilet paper, paper towels and napkins. I would suggest that the owners put together a "home manual" as many other VRBO owners do, so there are instructions on the TV (we had to figure out that the TV in the master's bedroom controls the TV in the living room), DVD player (never did figure that one out and we had a home video we wanted to watch), etc. We also did not have access to a washer and dryer, which is odd. But overall, we enjoyed our stay and found the owners easy to work with. My hope is that they can address this feedback with their next renters.

Beautiful Property!

  • 4 of 5

There were 8 of us total and the property allowed space for all of us to sleep comfortably. Keep in mind it is definitely like a maze inside the home and there are a lot of very steep stairs. Just something to consider for small children or senior citizens. It was hard for my Papa to use the stairs when they came over for Christmas Day. The game room was GREAT for the kids and we were able to have our family Christmas gift exchange all in one room so that was nice. The home had almost everything we needed to cook but the mystery smell wafting up from the bottom floor was definitely something that everyone in our group had an issue with. The smell goes into the kitchen and living area. We tried to febreeze it but it didn’t work at all. Other than that the host was absolutely accommodating and very easy to communicate with. The outdoor deck area was beautiful and spacious. We had trouble with the internet as it was very slow when everyone was home in the evenings. My cousin said it got better during the day when everyone left to go skiing. My husband brought his jet pack (hotspot) so we had to use that in the evenings to get work done or watch Netflix on our laptop before bed. The cable worked great in the gameroom and the 2 guest rooms that had TV’s but we never got it to work in the living room. The receiver in the master bedroom has to be on for it to work but even after the host help us figure that part out the tv wouldn’t change channels? My husband brought a jump drive with tons of movies so we just put that directly into the smart TV and used that all week! Due to internet being so slow we could not get Netflix on smart TV to work. All in all it was an awesome vacation spot with a few quirks! Thank you for everything, Murray.

Beautiful spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home for a weekend getaway. Very spacious for 8 girls. Kitchen was well equipped for home cooked meals. Beds were cozy, 1 restroom on each floor was plenty. Our favorite spot was on the deck overlooking beautiful Ruidoso. We played the board games, played pool, enjoyed the jacuzzi, and the list goes on. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
