Panoramic views of Elephant Butte Lake

  • 4 of 5

We were met by the very friendly and welcoming property manager in town and were personally directed to our VRBO home. She provided us with good information about the home and the local area. And, she assured us that she was available at any time during our stay for a phone call to her regarding any questions that we might have. The adobe home is located on the low hillside of Elephant Butte Lake with a magnificent view of the surrounding mesas, buttes and lake. We enjoyed the views and the cooing of the mourning doves each morning sitting on the deck sipping our coffee and in the early evenings as we watched the lake change colors from green to blue. The night sky delivers an amazing view of thousands of stars.

The home itself was adequate for the needs of four women, providing 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Beautiful light shines in from the many windows and the two glass dormers in the roof. The deck itself needs some work - scraping and resurfacing of the chipped paint but we did not have any safety issues. The kitchen was stocked with all of the essentials that we needed but the broiler does not work in the oven.

The location of the adobe is perfect for trips to the surrounding area such as Truth or Consequences for the hot springs, other local towns and Spaceport America.

Enjoyed our Stay

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Aug 2017 at this VBRO at Elephant Butte. The house is in a great location as far as proximity to town, the boat ramp and the view is awesome. We had two couples staying in the home. The master bedroom was very comfortable, however, our friends had some difficulty sleeping due to the bed in the second bedroom being uncomfortable. The kitchen was awesome and we enjoyed cooking out on the deck. The house has an awesome air conditioner which made it awesome once we came in off of the lake.

The property manager was awesome and very prompt. The house was very clean with plenty of necessary items (i.e. towels, dishes, pans, etc.)

We will definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great stay.

Very clean house in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice 3 bedroom 2 bath house with a lovely view of the lake. We totally enjoyed our stay! The house was very clean and in generally good shape. The only reason it is not a 5, is there is no WiFi and the cell service is pretty weak. It would also be nice to have some hand soap at each of the bathroom sinks. Other than that, it was great! We would come again if it is available.

Overall good stay but property needs some maintenance

  • 2 of 5

My family and I stayed at the house for 3 nights and for the most part enjoyed the time. The front deck however is in very bad shape and falling apart. The last night we were there my brother fell through the deck when one of the boards broke causing some significant scrapes and bruises. I informed the property manager of the problem and she assured me that the owner would contact me immediately, we're 3 days past departure and I've heard nothing from him. I did however get a text from the property manager complaining about the trash can being full when we left. I'm disappointed that the focus was on a city trash can actually being used and not on the fact that there was an injury caused by negligence. The house is in good shape otherwise, the location is great and we had a great time. I won't rent the property again nor will I refer anyone because of the attitude of the property manager and the fact that the owner did not respond to our concerns.

Owner's Response: I have spoken to Chris, the renter who wrote this review. It appears that this bad review is more of a result of a personality conflict with the property manager rather than the condition of the property. From as recently as this summer 2017, going back 10 years, this property has received consistent top ratings for cleanliness, attractiveness, location, and maintenance. Read the reviews for yourself. This is an overly harsh and unjustified low rating. The entire property is painted regularly, has new upgraded flooring and tastefully decorated. The reviewer even says the maintenance and location are good in his review despite the rating.. The property manager has sent me photos and there are no holes in the front deck, especially holes that an adult could fall through. The deck is weather worn and some boards have been replaced as required but this is to be expected in a harsh desert environment. It always unfortunate when some one is dissatisfied. I made every attempt to help the renter resolve this problem but he declined. The deck is old but safe.

We loved our stay and had a great time! We thoroughly enjoyed the deck overlooking the lake.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great property for what we wanted to do. We enjoyed our stay and had fun on the lake! My favorite part was the deck overlooking the lake. We spent hours in the evening watching the sunset and looking at the stars!
