Location Details

Perfect for adventurous couple and families seeking an outdoorsy desert experience, this home lies within walking distance to Desert Foothills Park - a large, public recreation area with paved trails, picnic pavilions and more. Venture a little further with a 25-minute drive to White Sands National Monument and observe the rare, gypsum sand dune landscape.

Horse Ridge, Ortega Peak, and Herberger Peak are all waiting to be hiked just minutes from your door and, if you’re traveling in the winter, Ski Cloudcroft is just a half hour away. Take a break from the outdoor recreation and visit the New Mexico Museum of Space History or the Alameda Park Zoo.

Head about an hour north to spend a day in Ruidoso or stay closer to home and treat yourself to quaint nights out in the town of Alamogordo. Stroll through local parks, stop in local boutiques and thrift stores, and test out popular eateries like Brown Bag Deli and Memories.

  • Beautiful view of sleeping lady mountain


    I would stay at this property again. It was just me and my husband and we had plenty of room and comfy bed. Not sure how comfy the 2nd bed is because I did not use it. Wouldn't want to put two adults in that bed. Everything else was wonderful.

  • House is tired and worn out.


    Kitchen and bathroom date to probably mid-60s, have never been updated. Scale build up from the hard water was terrible and made everything appear to be not cleaned. We had to run vinegar through the coffee maker before using to clean it. Living room furniture was pushed up in the corner of room and covered with blankets, so obviously the picture in the listing did not reflect our experience. Check out instructions specified emptying trash in the dumpster in the alley across the street, but actually the "dumpster" is the private trash and belonging to the houses on that street. Perhaps these owners should start paying for trash pick up. Would not stay again.

  • Comfortable home in a great location


    We had a great stay at this home. It was very comfortable for our family and we enjoyed many day trips and excursions? sunsets at white sands, organ mountains (pine loop trail), heart of the desert pistachio farm, space history museum .

  • Suited our purposes


    This home was advertised as a 2-bedroom, but it really had one bedroom and a crowded office with an uncomfortable futon. Lightbulbs were missing in the bathroom light fixture. We needed a place to stay for a few days for events at the nearby AFB, and this home was conveniently located, but I think it was overpriced.

  • Decent place, close to White Sands, nice neighborhood


    We stayed in this home for three nights, the owner is very nice and responded promptly for questions. We like the neighborhood and a beautiful trail is within walking distance. A very convenient location to White Sands National Monument. Thank you for sharing your home.
