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.

Donald Munoz purchased this chalet in 2011

Beautiful view and home

  • 5 of 5

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!

We really enjoyed this mountain chalet for our family vacation. Spending 2 weeks here seemed to fly by as we felt so ‘at home’. The house was very clean and well maintained with attractive décor. There was ample room to sleep our 5 adults and 4 grandkids. Having the 3 levels made the space seem open and roomy for everyone plus offered spectacular views from every room in the house. The deer were there to greet us every morning and most evenings. The time spent around the firepit watching the outstanding sunsets or just relaxing on the balcony watching the wildlife were the highlights of our time. We were fortunate to have the perfect weather in order to escape the heat we left back at home. Mr. Munoz was most helpful in ensuring that our time spent in Alto was entertaining and answered all our questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend this home and can safely say you will not be disappointed. We hope to return in the future.

Beautiful home and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this mountain top home. With 4 bedrooms there was plenty of room for our group. Evenings on the deck or by the fire pit were exceptional! Another nice feature was having level access to the living area, kitchen , half bath and master suite. We love spending time in Ruidoso/Alto and this home was a home away from home. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with, thanks Munoz family!
