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

Why Donald Munoz chose New Mexico

Stunning views, new outdoor fire pit, wifi, refrigerated air, hardwood entertainment deck, 3 story chalet for privacy on 3 acres, 2 master bedrooms with king sized beds and more!

Beautiful view and home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Ruidoso mountain home! We went over spring break with our two kids and their grandparents and had a wonderful time. The view from the house is so amazing and everything that we could've needed was there. The house was spacious, comfortable, bright, and had plenty of room for all of us. The kids loved the foosball table and all the games provided. We also loved seeing the elk and deer each morning. We all enjoyed the fire pit and looking at the stars. Donald went above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip by recommending places to eat, things to do, and being available to answer any questions we had. Great location and great view! We hope to be back!

Beautiful home and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this mountain top home. With 4 bedrooms there was plenty of room for our group. Evenings on the deck or by the fire pit were exceptional! Another nice feature was having level access to the living area, kitchen , half bath and master suite. We love spending time in Ruidoso/Alto and this home was a home away from home. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with, thanks Munoz family!

This is such a beautiful place! Very peaceful! Love the fire pit to sit amongst our friends. One of my favorite thing was waking up to see the sunrise and having deer so close to us! Donald was the best to us, I asked for places to eat, and he gave some awesome recommendations. I will definitely be going back!

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!
