About Donald Munoz
My wife and I have 3 beautiful daughters we enjoy spending time with in Alto. The atmosphere is incredibly peaceful and the surroundings are truly scenic. In the winter, snowfall makes this home an enchanting destination you will not want to leave. In the summer, it is the premier place to get away from the heat and enjoy the fresh outdoors. We enjoy sharing our 2 properties with guests and the best our mountain village has to offer.

Beautiful view and home
We loved this Ruidoso mountain home! We went over spring break with our two kids and their grandparents and had a wonderful time. The view from the house is so amazing and everything that we could've needed was there. The house was spacious, comfortable, bright, and had plenty of room for all of us. The kids loved the foosball table and all the games provided. We also loved seeing the elk and deer each morning. We all enjoyed the fire pit and looking at the stars. Donald went above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip by recommending places to eat, things to do, and being available to answer any questions we had. Great location and great view! We hope to be back!
Very happy our recommendations made your vacation extra satisfying! The views, fire pit and games we have added for little people truly satisfy all appetites of a luxury mountain adventure. Hope to have you visit again soon. Best, DM.
Wonderful Views in a Beautiful Mountain Home!
Our trip to Alto was wonderful! Donald, the home owner was great to work with. From the moment we booked his home, Donald was able to help me with any and every question I had. He definitely knows how to make you feel like a special VIP guest. We such a relaxing, fun weekend in Alto/Ruidoso. The views from the home are beautiful. We especially enjoyed being able to grill on the patio and make s'mores while circled around the fire pit. Sitting under the moonlight with our family and friends was wonderful. This spacious 4 bedroom house is in great condition with so much to do! In the basement there is a king size bed with small full bathroom separate from the room which is very convenient. There is a beautiful Master bedroom on the ground floor with a huge bathroom, a half bath located by the washer dryer room. Upstairs two very nice bedrooms with a full bath in between. I was mostly excited about the foosball table, bean bag toss and all of the games to bring out some laughs! The kitchen was wonderful with great view of the living room. Our vacation couldn't have been any better. I can not thank Donald enough for making us feel welcome and comfortable at every moment before, during and after our stay!
Thank you for such a detailed review, we appreciate your thoughts. It is a pleasure getting to know our guests so we can recommend activities and offer the best Ruidoso has to offer. Can’t wait to have you back! Best, Donald
We had an amazing vacation at this lovely home.
Our favorite thing to do was to wake up and have coffee on the deck overlooking the mountains. The wild life was an added bonus to the scenery! We got to see several deer and even a few elk while relaxing outside. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook several meals at the house. The house was very clean and comfortable. Donald was very helpful and suggested lots of delicious restaurants and fun activities to do around town. Overall we had a great vacation and definitely will be back!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, we appreciate your input. The morning and evening views are breathtaking, so glad you enjoyed. Looking forward to your next visit. Best, Donald
Fantastic views and wonderful accommodations
We live in Texas and have been coming to Ruidoso for many years with our family. This cabin has the best views of any we have stayed at. It's high on the hill with gorgeous views of the snow top mountains. Our favorite thing was the privacy, no cabins close around and can enjoy the deck views by yourself. It's equipped with most everything you need including some games for the grandkids.
The bedrooms are on three levels, with a king downstairs by itself with bath, a king bedroom/bath on main level and upstairs 2 more bedrooms with a bath with queens. So everyone has some privacy too.
Thank you again for allowing our family to enjoy your wonderful cabin. Hope to come back soon.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about our mountain retreat. The privacy, views and experience we try to create and share is second to none. We hope to see you and your family again very soon! Best, Donald
Gorgeous home with awesome mountain views
My family, my brother’s family and my parents had a very pleasant time at this home. It’s location at the mountain is great with wonderful views from different areas of the house. The house is fully equipped, cozy and very comfortable for our group size (10 people). Our children really enjoyed playing in the outside swings and with the sleights available when it snowed. We all enjoyed the fresh air and surrounding nature including deer. It was very peaceful, but at the same time a very short drive to town. The owner provided excellent, very welcoming service. I highly recommend this property for a getaway in Ruidoso.
We appreciate your review and are happy you enjoyed the views, wildlife, snow saucers and the overall experience we strive to create for every one of our guests. Sharing the moments that leave impactful memories is a pleasure my family and I truly take pride in. Best, Donald
This vacation rental was over the top! Loved it! Beautiful views!! Gazing at amazing sunsets and sunrises...while enjoying a warm cup of coffee or a nice cup of hot tea... Not only did I feel at home... Donald made sure of it! He checked on my family and I the whole weekend!! He was very attentive to our needs! I would absolutely recommend this house over and over again! We will be coming back soon!!! Thanks again Munoz Family!!!
