The condo was very clean and up to date. The view from the balcony was great
cause you could see the deer and go out and feed them. I'm definitely
staying again if I have the chance! The owner was very helpful when I had
questions and I absolutely loved his place.
Our first impression was how clean and new everything was. The lodge-like atmosphere and the New Mexico décor made for very comfortable surroundings. Coming from Texas in the middle of the hot summer to stay at the condo was a welcome relief. Thank goodness for the unit’s air conditioning as well as Alto’s normally cool climate in the evenings. We saw wild horses, some even coming right to the condo as well as a dozen or so deer and one elk!
Bar-b-que-ing on the deck at night was a great way to end a perfect day of hiking, exploring and of course shopping.
We also enjoyed eating at Casa Blanca and hanging out at the new Sacred Grounds Café. The unit is very near several hiking trails and we were happy and surprised to find a horned toad along the path- now a rare sighting in Texas. Some teens with our party enjoyed the pool and foosball table in the clubhouse. The surroundings and accommodations made this experience with friends and loved ones outstanding. We can't wait to go back again!
HEAVENLY AND FUN MOUNTAIN RETREAT = #15
We wanted a cozy, CLEAN, family friendly house that would provide each of us with our own space, privacy from one another, indoor and outdoor play areas for my granddaughter, fun in the snow, and beautiful views. We found it here! 3 bedrooms each have a new cable TV, 3 FULL bathrooms - 2 inside the bedrooms and one in the adjacent hall, an open kitchen with eat-in bar, an open dining and living room with fireplace, and a connected glass den with workout equipment. This room was a big hit with my granddaughter because the television had a DVD player, and she entertained herself within eyesight. She was constantly running to the floor-to-ceiling windows in search of the deer we fed on the driveway each morning. Details:
1. HOUSE: It's a cozy, lodge style. All areas but the bedrooms are open to one another, making it possible to socialize between the kitchen, living room and glass den. This is a nice feature if you have family of different age groups. After skiing the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, we used the grill on the treetop balcony while watching the game from the kitchen and comfy sofas in front of the fireplace.
2. BEDROOMS: All have equally good bedding and private baths. One BR has a bath with shower stall in the hallway, but it's right outside the door. It's "fair" sleeping for all in large groups. No haggling over who pays extra, with a small exception on the master. All beds are queens, the bedding is new and good quality. Plenty of extra sheets and there's a washer and dryer in the kitchen. The sofa in the glass den is also a sleeper.
3. MASTER: The master bedroom has a HUGE attached bathroom with deep jacuzzi tub and double sink vanity. It's one of 2 ways to access the master bedroom - from the hallway or from the glass room.
4. KITCHEN: The only thing you need to bring or buy are groceries and laundry detergent. The kitchen has every appliance or piece of equipment you can imagine. The dishwasher detergent is supplied because you MUST follow their very clear directions since the hard water leaves a film on glass.
5. FUN/TOWN: Besides skiing and snow boarding in the area, Ruidoso is cute and is fun to stroll. The Walmart that carries inexpensive ski and snow gear in case you forget something. We bought an inexpensive sled that we used in the on-property and at the ski area. (It's in the entry way closet for ourselves and others for next time, but PLEASE leave it there if you use it!
With this being our first experience with rentals of this type, the bar was definitely set high!!! The accommodations were exceptional and more than we could have even imagined. The owners were wonderful to work with, especially with a last minute addition change to our rental time. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and make our stay and first experience very enjoyable. Definitely recommend this location to friends and family!!
We just returned from our visit to Alto, and everything was exceptional! The condo was beautiful, clean, and spacious. I was so excited upon entering the front door and seeing that the home looked even better in person than in pictures! The back deck was great, especially for early morning coffee. We saw deer (of course), a black hawk, and our son got some great video of the wild horses (including a foal) wandering through the complex. This location was great for anyone wanting to enjoy the peacefulness of the mountains but still not be too far from restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. We wanted a place where we could spread out and feel comfortable while visiting with family in the area, and this was perfect. It truly felt like our home away from home. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We'll be back!
We feel the pictures were a little deceiving as the unit was quite dark. Not much sunlight came in and the lighting from the fixtures was very dim. Enjoyed the deck and the deer showing up mornings and evenings.
The furniture was nice and the bed was quite comfortable. Plenty of dishes and cooking supplies. We enjoyed Ruidoso and found plenty of activities to keep us busy. Owner responded to our needs timely; had ants upon arrival and housekeeper came right away. TV reception and Wi-fi needed repairing and that was taken care of during the week.
