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 had an amazing vacation at this lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic views and wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

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.

Gorgeous home with awesome mountain views

  • 5 of 5

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 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.
