Nice, Clean and Fun!

My wife, sister, brother in-law and 5 kids stayed here after Christmas till January 2nd. Drove up from Austin. Everyone loved the layout, decor and location. Condo was fresh and clean upon our arrival. The condo is nicer than the pictures portray. Balcony has awesome view of the town and mountain. Furnishings and decorations where perfect for our winter cabin trip. Many places we have stayed have cheap worn out furniture and generic decorations with lots of personal clutter and junk all about. That wasnt the case here! Bathrooms are all updated and clean which is a major plus for the women. Plenty of pots and pans, washer/dryer, and never ran out of hot water. The basement is lots of fun with a good fire going. Owner Mike or his associates responded promptly to all inquiries.
WiFi was faster than I get at my own home and we had multiple laptops, ipads and phones. Internet was convenient because we booked a nights stay online in Santa Fe to see old friends and find better ski conditions. Easy scenic drive about 3 hrs north. Ski Apache did not have enough snow yet and I think is still cleaning up from the fire and only had 3 lifts open. Condo is easy walk down to town, but a little tougher carrying items back up on icy roads. About our 5th day there we got snowed in in the complex since we didnt bring tire chains. The complex driveways are steep, narrow and windy so plan accordingly. They didnt plow or salt while we were there. Just up the hill from the office is an old tower of some sort. On the other side you can view the town, explore and "climb" down. Signs say it is National Forest so I think that means its open to explore. This was a fun adventure in the snow. Casino is maybe a 10 min drive away depending on traffic.
I actually stayed in this unit about 10 yrs ago and it was just as I remembered. FUN! The town seems to have developed quite a bit for the better since my last time there. I have been to Ruidoso and Ski Apache several times.
Security deposit was promplty returned. The only thing that could of been better was if the Mountain Gods had brought the snow a week earlier.
