Property is in good shape. Hot tub on the deck was the ultimate place for viewing the gorgeous NM sunrises! Pool table was fun, if not perfectly level. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for 6 daily. Heating/cooling worked great! Called to ask how to light the pilot on the fireplace and Taylor was there in no time to do it for us! COVID protocol all the way! Short walks in the neighborhood turned into wildlife-viewing adventures! Lots of deer, elk and wild turkey. The weather was warm while we were there, but if there is snow, you will DEFINITELY need chains/4WD! VERY STEEP hills!

Excellent location and well stocked and designed house. The views from balcony are gorgeous. Enjoyed our stay.

The overall experience of our stay was great! Cleanliness: The property was very clean for the most part. The ceiling fans were pretty dusty, but not a problem for us since we didn't use them (I'm sure could bother some people). Other than that it was very clean. Communication with Property Manager: No issues here at all. We called the maintenance team on our first day to ignite the pilot lights on the fireplaces, and they came out when they said they would. Location: The view off the back patio was amazing! The neighborhood was very quiet while we were there, and we assume that had to do some with COVID. However, it seemed like it would be fine any other time, as well. The property is a 10 minute drive to town/grocery store which was also great. Improvements: More baking pans that fit in the oven (smaller oven and only had 1 that fit). Have a snow shovel handy. It snowed 8 inches the night before we left, and we had to clear the drive using a push broom (was a good workout though). Our review is in line with most others, as the property is a little outdated. We thought that might bother us at first, but it gave us a warm cottage/cabin type of feel, so it didn't bother us much, if at all. We would definitely stay here again.

Layout of house was perfect for us. Great floorplan. Awesome view off deck. Hot tub was clean and enjoyable. Kitchen had all we needed in the way of dishes, pots and pans. The only thing I would bring next time is instant coffee. The water is hard in NM so coffee pots anywhere get residue in them. It was just easier to do a cup of instant. That was my only First World Problem and it was easily resolved. We would stay there again.

Nice home with relaxing views on the decks and easy to drive into Ruidoso, New Mexico for shopping & eating. Would like to go back again.

We really enjoyed our stay. We are new to staying in VRBO. So I made a lot of calls in the beginning and at the end when we checked out to make sure all was in order. The end caps from the pool sticks were broken. A call quickly resolved the problem. New sticks were provided and the fun continued. We reported a problem with one of the sofas in the loft area. However because of this we found a small box that a previous guest left behind. I reported it to the management and left it for housekeeping So please give them a call and identify the contents. Another issue that I did not report is the cookware has seen better days and needs to be replaced. I know they will quickly take care of this for future guests from what we experienced with this company. if you do have a problem or concern call their maintenance team. They seem to really care and sent someone over. Just keep in mind don’t complain about something later if you did not address it with them first. They cant fix it if it is not reported. Unfortunately my mom passed away and another unforeseen issue occurred making it necessary to leave a day early. Bottom line You will enjoy this very clean, large family home with beautiful views and wonderful neighborhood. We discovered the neighbors across the street are from Texas and have another house a few miles from us. Felt like home Would love to come back soon.

Overall a good place. I could not get the fireplaces to work. The jetted tub is inoperable. We did see multiple spiders. Pool sticks need to be replaced as most of them cannot be used due to missing or cracked tips. Regardless, we still had a great visit. Thank You.

Very private and relaxing views

Our stay was wonderful. The view is amazing. The house is very spacious and supplied with so many amenities which helps to minimize packing. We enjoyed the cozy home like feel of the place. We plan on being returning guests.

House is incredible and wonderful views. Very well stocked and nice
By Scott, Posted: 06/11/2019
My only critique of this property would be that they need to update the handle in the master bath shower as it is very tricky to get it hot then once you do it's hard to find the happy medium and the other comment would be that it advertises as a pet friendly property which is awesome but they should state there is really no fenced in portion for your furry family

It was a very beautiful home we had a great time thank y’all for everything!

By Robert, Posted: 03/14/2018
The views and wildlife at this place is absolutely beautiful. Very quite and family and pet friendly. I would stay again if just some minor issues get taken care of. Mainly housekeeping and maintenance issues. The house is beautiful, but needs maintenance, luckily my dad that went with us a a handyman and repaired two stools that were broken when we arrived. He also cleaned up some trash that was thrown over the rail in the back patio. Door handles in main bathroom and upstairs bedroom need to be repaired. Kitchen appliances along with dishes need to be cleaned. Seemed like every dish and utensil we pull d out had to be washed, cracks in table held so much food old food crumbs that it was really unhealthy. Luckily we had a handheld vacuum to pull them out.

I absolutely loved Montana Tranquila! Such a beautiful cabin, warm and cozy!
By Abril, Posted: 12/19/2017
We loved the place the view is beautiful, the house was clean and very cozy, the kitchen had everything the place was very spacious as well, the Jacuzzi was great we were at 55° and couldn't feel it inside the Jacuzzi, the only thing is that the check in is till 4 pm and the check out to early at 10 am, :( considering the price, and comparing with other places from airbnb that we have rent in Ruidoso, But besides that it was awesome !

Beautiful view. We saw wild turkeys in the front yard. Also, deer in the neighborhood while we walked our dog.

We recently stayed at Montana Tranquila in Ruidoso for a Father’s Day getaway let me begin by saying the house was beautiful and enough space for our family. The views from the decks were spectacular and the atmosphere was so relaxing. The house offered many wonderful amenities, the hot tub was amazing. The downside of our stay was that the house did not cool down well, it was hard to get a good nights rest as hot as the house was. Another big downfall was the astonishing amount of spiders that were in the house. Our children could not fully relax because at every corner of the house there was a spider, at one point in our short stay we had to kill a centipede. Yuck!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home! AMAZING VIEWS! We will be back.

My wife and I just returned from a week at Hummingbird's Sans-Souci "Care Free". We changed houses this year for a different view and weren't disappointed. The house was great and along with the views being outstanding there was so much wildlife. Had a flock of turkeys in the yard one day, a herd of deer the next that stayed for several hours and as we were leaving, 2 lots down we encountered a pair of young elk munching on pine branches next to the road. This was our 2nd year renting from Hummingbird and both times it's been an excellent experience. The houses are always well stocked and if there are any issues, which are rare, they respond immediately. They're also very helpful in recommending places to see in the Ruidoso area. Jeff and his staff do a great job to make your stay unforgettable. We love Ruidoso and this house and will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed and sans-Souci for our second wedding anniversary. The first night we were aloe and had ths big house all to ourselves. The second night 3 other couples joined us: it was perfect with plenty of room. We brought groceries and cooked a meal for 8 and the kitchen was so easy to find what we needed to cook with and the girls giggled at the bar while the guys BBQ on the deck and played pool in the adjacent sunken living room. The back deck and hot tub was AMAZING!! Staff was very helpful when we could not figure out how to work one of the TV's..walked us thru it over the phone. If you have not visit Ruidoso lately, make sure to add it to your to do list and stay at this wonderful home. Don't know why they call it a cabin..it's more like a castle fit for a King and Queen and their friends. We will be back!

OUR STAY IN Sans-Souci “Care-free”, WAS GOOD, BUT YOU POST THAT HAS ROOM TO SLEEP 14 AND IT IS NOT TRUE, 10 MAYBE BUT NOT 14 SO MY ADVICE IS THAT YOU SAY THAT THE CABIN IS FOR LESS ADULTS AND MAYBE 2 OR 3 KIDS BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH ROOM AND BEDS, BUT THE CABIN IS GREAT ONLY FOR LESS PEOPLE, TKS!!

Our families enjoyed our stay! Great views inside and out! Huge beautiful house. Very spacious! Made great memories and hope to come back again soon!! Thank you for letting us enjoy this house!!

I stayed here with my parents in August 2015. From the moment we arrived, it was serene, peaceful, clean mountain air, views for days. The whole place gets a good amount of sunlight and there are fans and AC to adjust the temperature so we were very comfortable. The house (more of a large lodge) is very spacious, with lots of entertainment space, dining place, and a cozy fireplace for cold nights. There are fresh linens, additional blankets, tons of beds, bathrooms all in extremely clean condition.. When we woke up in the morning, we found a herd of deer quietly grazing on the grass outside it was beautiful. The jacuzzi/hot tub is very large and allows you to see the mountains while in the tub since it is on the balcony. It was overall a very relaxing stay and I would visit again.
By Denise, Posted: 02/13/2015
I have never had such an unforgettable weekend as I did staying here. all of my friends had such an amazing time. I didn’t want it to end. we did just about everything we could in those 4 days there. nothing but laughs at that cabin. those are memories I will cherish for the rest of my life. I am amazed at how it turned out. thank you for your cooperation! I will look forward to booking with you guys again soon.

We stayed at the Sans-Souci Care-Free home for 4 days and we had a very relaxing and peaceful time. The view from the deck is just breathtaking and really made leaving this place very hard. We saw deers, wild turkeys and did I mention my kids got to feed a deer? They absolutely loved getting so close! What a great experience! The home is very spacious and offers literally everything from a fully stocked kitchen to gas grill as well as a pool table and a Jacuzzi. We enjoyed our stay 100% and will return when friends visit from Germany! By the way, the people at Hummingbird Cabins provide excellent customer service! We just booked another stay for thanksgiving, this time in a different Hummingbird cabin and cannot wait to be there! Thank you!

We had 7 of us at Montana Tranquila – ton of room and beautiful home with awesome views and wildlife. We are repeat clients for Hummingbird Cabins and will call you first next time we come to Ruidoso. Had a wonderful time – hated to leave.

7/28/2014 We had a great time with family with stunning views at San-souci carefree on timberline. It could have been 5 stars however the checkout time is early 10am and the house a little rough around the edges (slightly dirty with a few broken items - shades, window locks etc).
By Brian and Yvonne, Posted: 06/28/2014
Our Family stayed at the Sans-Souci Care-Free home for 5 days and it was the most restful and peaceful stay. We enjoyed spectacular views from every area inside and outside the home. We enjoyed watching deer, turkeys, hummingbirds and little squirrels every day we were there from the numerous windows, inside the home, and from the back deck. This home offers three bedrooms and a loft area, which accommodated 10 people very comfortably. The Jacuzzi and pool table is another great asset this property offers. In addition to our great stay and satisfaction with the home, I must add that the people at Hummingbird Cabins provide excellent customer service. They are available 7 days a week and are only a telephone call away from addressing any concerns. I have used numerous other property management rentals in Ruidoso in the past, and must say that Hummingbirds Cabins has given us the best experience. Thank You. We will definitely be calling Hummingbird Cabins again.
