About Twiletta Howze

We are home builders from Granbury, Tx, We enjoyed building this beautiful mountain home.

Twiletta Howze purchased this house in 2011

Why Twiletta Howze chose New Mexico

It is the most beautiful scenery, best temperatures and greatest snow skiing within 8 hours of Dallas/Fort Worth!!! We also enjoy golf, pickle ball, hiking, the casino and race track. The weather is amazing in the summer, highs in the 80's and lows in the 50's and 60's.

What makes this house unique

The home is wonderful and the decks are amazing. This is a year round play place. We also enjoy golf, pickle ball, hiking, the casino and race track. The weather is amazing in the summer, highs in the 80's and lows in the 50's and 60's. In the winter you can enjoy easy access to snow skiing. Perfect!!

Lovely home in scenic location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation home for our family ski trip. It's very near the Sierra Blanca turn off to the ski area and is set among beautiful pines in a quiet and inviting neighborhood. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed feeding the deer, watching for wildlife, and going for nature walks. Twiletta was most helpful whenever we had questions. For me, the best room of the house was the lovely deck looking out onto a gorgeous view! Can't beat it! We would definitely book again.

College Students used for research purposes

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent house. The view was incredible. Internet was very important for our purposes and it was great. The kitchen had all the cooking utensils that you could want. The beds were very comfortable. Twiletta was easy to reach for any questions and very welcoming and warm. The deer were so tame they ate out of our hands which was a big perk. I hope to go back for other retreats.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! I highly recommend staying here. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and it was perfect. Has a beautiful view of the mountains and we really enjoyed sitting on the back porch everyday! The owner was wonderful to work with and made it very easy. My family will definitely be staying here again.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

House is great. The deck is wonderful for relaxing and watching wildlife. We had deer, turkey, skunk and even a fox. The pool table entertained the 13 year old and kept him busy. Plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen is well equipped and beds are very comfortable. This is our 2nd time to rent this house and both times were awesome. Great location!

Top Notch Alto (Ruidoso) home

  • 5 of 5

As a family of six, we’ve stayed in many HomeAway and VRBO vacation rental home over the years. This home is at the top of our list. The house is very well laid out, inviting and most importantly…comfortable. You can tell that there is a lot of love and personal touch that has gone into the construction of this home. The kitchen is top-notch, the beds are super comfortable and the house feels cozy while allowing for the room you need to spread out. We were familiar with the Alto area of Ruidoso before visiting and it again lived up to expectations. A great area to stay if you want to either ski (as close as you can get to the mountain road to the slopes) or just enjoy the quaint mountain town of Ruidoso. The back deck of the house is perfect as well. Great views nestled in the pine trees with great wildlife watching all around (deer!). Owners are awesome as well. Very professional, organized and personable. I highly recommend this house. We look forward to coming back.
