About Property Manager/Owner
We live west of Austin, TX enjoying the best of a beautiful Tx hillcountry rural setting & near proximty of Austin amenities. Bonnie teaches religion to 8th graders at St Stephens School just west of Austin. I work for a software comapny who are the worlds leader in transportation infrastruture design and life cycle asset management. My heavy travel schedule throughour the great U.S. I work with our clients and several national professioan industry associations, representing our company at these executive events. My schdule and flexibility to home office anywehere enables me to get away a few times a year to the beauty & perfect climate of Ruidoso, NM. We still work hard but are approaching retirement in the not too distant future with the ability to split time bteween central Texas and Ruidoso, enjoying travel as well throughtout the U.S.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this House in 2014
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Ruidoso
Come enjoy what we long far throughout the year, getting to Ruidoso & Buena Vista Estates any time of the year...a few days or few weeks. A few years back we evaluated the best climates in the U.S. and narrowed the choices to northern AZ and various parts of NMx. Ruidoso is a bit of an oasis in the desert southwest but surrounded by pine forest in every direction. We heard wonderfil things about Ruidoso and came and checked it out thinking we would buy a 2 bdrm - 1 bath cabin in the mountains as a place to escape the Tx heat & convenient to our extended family in the southwest & Texas. Never hot at 7,000 ft & especially with the hilltop setting of our home in Buena Vista Estates. This home we heard about from dear friends who knew the original owners who dedsigned and contracted to a local team its plan & building to the greatest detail. The home was designed by a nuclear physicist as his families dream home with every consideration imaginable for comfort & casual living year round. We felt so privileged & fortuante to find out it was available and be able to expand our original plan from a small cabin to a place where all our faily and freinds could come vacation, like we hoipoe you will do often. We love it as a place to get away ever chance we get. Please treat out hosue as your home away from home. Relax, feel the cool mountian breezes and clear sun drenched days & sparking fresh nights and evenings. You will love the experience and relaxing setting.
What makes this House unique
Buena Vista Estates is on a hill top. it is a small gated community of 8 or so homes with coded gate entry on the north side of Ruidoso east of Mechem Drive, access via University & Scenic Drive. Fantastic views from this home west to Sierra Blanca Peak of 12,000 ft. and east to our extensive small community greenbelt. Links at Sierra Blanca is to the south overlooked by Buena Vista Estates community overlook, approximately 750 ft above the Links of Sierra Blanca valley golf course. Our home was designed with incredible insulation features for both winter & summer comfort. It has 12' walls with a stucco exterior. We have owned the home 3 years & been there in the hottest days in July & August, (90 degress is about the upper limit) and no matter winter or summer, have rarely tunred on the heat. Maybe a fire in one of the 3 fireplaces for mood & enjoyment. The positioning of the home to take adavatge of the hill top breezes of west and southeast make no centralk aie necessary at all. Come enjoy this special desert southwest traditional Santa Fe home as we did every chance we get. The views out large windows and 50 ft covered deck across the back to the mountains to the west are unique. The view, colors & clouds are changing from minute to minute from sunrise to sunset. Whether sitting in the jacuzzi on the deck just outside the master bedroom , grilling a tasty steak or food of your prefernce on the decks gas grill or raosting marchmellows to go with hershey bars at the fire pit adjoining the deck, you will relax and enjoy the time immensely. ...we promise. Take in a quarter horse race at the world famous Ruidoso Downs 30 minutes away, a performance at the Spenser Theater 20 minutes to the north, hit the slopes at Ski Apache 30 minutes away, hike & bike, shop or enjoy food & beverage at many places of your choice, you will enjoy your stay.

Beautiful views. Plenty of space!
House is very spacious. Fully equipped kitchen. Views are amazing! Loved the fireplaces in the bedrooms!
Property manager was helpful in getting us settled in.
Our first visit to Riudoso! Stayed 7 nights with the kids over spring break. Our first impression upon walking in is that the house is beautiful, well kept and the view from the back is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! We felt very welcome and comfortable the entire stay. The house is fully furnished with everything one might need. (The only thing we felt would be an addition might be a few more pots/skillets but this is definitely not a deal breaker!) We were even surprised when a brand new gas grill showed up on the drive during our stay! (I had read the prev. reviews regarding the old grill). We spoke with the property manager, Marisa, a few times and she was always accessible and attentive to our calls and questions. We are rating this experience as a 10+ and will plan to rent this property again if we ever get back to Ruidoso!

We had an excellent time! The house is so beautiful, with breathtaking views, expansive! It was a treat to be there during Christmas.
Overall beautiful home, could use some attention
This home is beautiful. First impression was haunted because the property manager never showed up to welcome us to the home as the welcome email stated she would. The house had dirty laundry, the stove was filthy, the gas grill looked like it has never been cleaned, the master bedroom sliding door to the patio was broken, and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. For the amount of money we spent on this rental I would have expected a clean place, a restful sleep, and a simple hello from the property manager as promised.
Amazing home with privacy and beautiful views!
We absolutely loved staying there. The house was adequately furnished and had everything needed in the kitchen for any event. My family thoroughly enjoyed each and every day. Definitely great for entertaining a big crowd! We had deer visitors each day. The walk around the neighborhood was great with more amazing views! We look forward to our next trip to this property!! 💜�😄�
Great Weekend !!!
Home was very clean and sufficient for our needs. Spacious and ease of entry into home.
Great get a way fairly priced. Would recommend and plan to return to this home.
