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

The Munoz Luxury Chalet Retreat was perfect for the children and the adults in our party. The home is well-appointed with spectacular views - filled with deer, elk, and white capped mountains. The location just outside of Ruidoso, is close to the Winter Park and Ski Apache, and a beautiful drive to town. The owner is highly attentive and answered all of our questions. Our stay was absolutely perfect - we will be back!

Gorgeous home with one of a kind views!

  • 5 of 5

We were speechless at how beautiful the drive was up to the property. The views this home has are unbelievable! We got to wake up to the snowy mountains and felt nestled in the woods. Donald has given so much detail in making his home so welcoming. Beautiful furnishings in every room, very clean and comfortable. You will not want to leave. We enjoyed the beautiful firepit and decks! Without a doubt we will be back next year. If you want to wake up to wood paradise this is the perfect place for you and yours. Donald was very attentive since day 1 of planning our stay all the way thru, checking up on us. Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with vacation rental. This will be a hard experience to beat. The property owner was very friendly and offered any assistance that he could to be accomadating. The views from the property were beautiful. Complete instructions were given about the operating the the heating and air and all other amenities. We would highly recommend this property and would likely check out its availability if we were going to be in the area again.

Beautiful welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! Excellent for a large group. We had my brothers bachelor party stay at this home and it accomodated the 9 of us perfectly. Waking up every morning to the gorgeous view was a delight. The most fun we had was our last night playing blackjack and grilling on the patio. The home creates an incredible atmosphere to bring everyone together. The only complaint is the two twin beds downstairs aren't the best for grown men! Otherwise this home is fantastic!

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed the poker chips and card games! Grilling on the deck with the Sierra Blanca mountain views always leaves a lasting impression. You will have to visit again soon as we are changing the 2 twin beds for a king downstairs to make it a 2nd master suite! Thank you for sharing your input! Sincerely, DM

Perfect getaway, beautiful home with equally beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect from my first conversation with Donald (the owner). He made it all easy and had the fridge stocked with our favorite drink when we arrived. The house was immacuate and had everything we needed and wanted for a wonderful trip. We especially enjoyed the firepit area and the Jenga game. Perfect getaway!!!
