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.

Record Snowfall !
We arrived for a little skiing and tubing and managed to arrive the day of record December snowfall in the area. What a sight. Beautiful snow, deer and Elk, and great ski conditions. The house was great. We had a full crowd of 10 but there was plenty of room. Everything was clean and well maintained. The heating system worked well and there was always plenty of hot water. The place was well stocked in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Comfy beds and nice towels and linens.
The property owner was great to deal with. With the record snowfall in the area, they were genuinely concerned with our safe arrival and went above and beyond, readying the place for us to arrive in front of the storm. Then they continued to monitor the weather and road conditions for us and eventually calling in a neighbor to clear snow from the driveway and help us rescue a stuck vehicle. If you visit in snowy weather I recommend driving a 4WD vehicle.
Overall a good value and we would stay again. Would love to try it out in the summer and enjoy the decks and firepit in a more substantial way.
Our stay in Alto was absolutely perfect! The house was beautiful and the special touches welcoming!
We loved our experience staying in Donald’s house in Alto! From the moment we first walked in, we were overwhelmed by the stunning views of the mountains through the many big windows! On our first morning, we enjoyed watching a herd of elk graze not far from the house as we ate breakfast! (For our more outdoorsy family members, that was tough to beat!)
We enjoyed many of the fun games that were provided at the house and also got to cheer on our Red Raiders as we watched a big game on the well-placed living room TV!
Each bedroom was so accommodating and each detail well-thought out. The foosball table was a highlight for the teenagers who played several very exciting games, making great memories!
Although the property felt somewhat remote since we were sitting on three high acres, driving into town to eat didn’t seem to take long at all. Also, we were able to enjoy cooking in the kitchen and had everything we needed appliance-wise and for serving.
I would highly recommend this beautiful house!
Oh, and one last important thing. . . I can’t imagine having a better experience with an owner than working with Donald Munoz! He was super friendly from the first moment we booked and responded almost immediately to any question or concern I had. His kindness and thoroughness to detail really took our overall experience to the next level!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our mountain retreat. From the views, firepit, wild life and games, we try to provide entertainment for all walks of life. We hope you return soon! Best, Donald
Amazing views, beautiful house and great communication with owner!
The owner checked in on us quite a bit which made us feel very special and welcomed. We were welcomed by 2 chalkboards with Welcoming notes. The views in the mornings of the mountains were breathtaking! The beds were a bit to firm for our liking but other than than that everything was impeccable. The fire pit outside made out evenings very nice and our get together that much better!
We appreciate all our guests and make it a point to personalize your time in our home for a memorable vacation. The views along with the fire pit always leave lasting impressions. Looking forward to your return! Best, Donald
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
