Owen and Maria Curry, Owners, Resort Properties of Angel Fire

We first came to Angel Fire in 1999 and have made almost annual visits ever since. In 2012 we decided occasional visits were not enough, so we purchased a lot. We built our slice of heaven in 2014. It soon became quite clear we loved being here more than being in Dallas, TX. We have owned and operated our own business for over 25 years and bring that business experience with us to Resort Properties of Angel Fire.

Know Before You Go

Please review our Policies & Procedures page before departing home. Also, print a map of the directions to Resort Properties check-in office. It is required that you check-in prior to entering the property. If you intend on arriving after hours, please notify our office in advance so we can leave your check-in package waiting for you. Please be aware, you must still come to the office and check-in the following day!

It is very important that you prepare for your visit to Angel Fire in advance. The weather changes dramatically and whether it be Winter or Summer visitors can find themselves unprepared!

In the winter always keep in mind you are traveling to a ski resort. Resort Properties cannot accept responsibility for a client not able to get to their property due to the lack of four-wheel drive. All of our properties are maintained by snowplows and accessible upon arrival. Be prepared!

You are traveling to above 8000 ft. in elevation. It is very important that you are well hydrated and have any necessary medications. Many visitors will experience headaches, light headed-ness and nausea when they arrive. Plenty of water and limited alcohol intake will help relieve these symptoms. Be prepared!

Please do not hesitate to contact our reservations office during business hours to obtain information regarding road and weather conditions at (575) 377-6441.

Safe travels from the Team at Resort Properties of Angel Fire!

FAQS: GUESTS

Q1) Should I purchase travel insurance?

A: If you are traveling from out of state, we recommend you purchase travel insurance. You can purchase a policy for a small amount that will cover your vacation for many unforeseeable circumstances. As opposed to other vacation destinations, traveling to the mountains poses extra risks. A few examples include canceled or delayed flights, impassable road conditions, and skiing injuries. Though we truly sympathize with our guests when something unfortunate happens, there are not very many circumstances in which we can provide refunds or reschedule your trip. It is precisely for this reason that you should carefully consider purchasing travel insurance. https://www.insuremytrip.com

Q2) Is a vacation rental different from a hotel?

A: Booking a vacation rental is like staying at the house of a friend. In our vacation rentals you will experience significantly more space, privacy, and comforts that feel like home, including a kitchen and a location that is beyond what most hotels can offer. All this at a significantly lower cost than a hotel with comparable features. But these benefits bring different considerations than a hotel. More privacy means that most guests do not want daily housekeeping. We offer a check-out clean and, for an added fee, mid-stay cleans. We also offer a starter supply of some consumables, including, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap and more, but these items are not restocked during a stay. A kitchen allows you to make home-cooked meals and guests will likely visit the store to purchase groceries.

Self-sufficiency is key to a happy stay in a vacation rental. We do provide housekeeping and 24/7 maintenance, but these are primarily for properties in between stays. Our staff services vacation rentals across several square miles, unlike a hotel that manages a single building. We have to strike a balance between cost and service, and have found that our current system has struck this balance as most of our guests are satisfied with their stays.

Hotels roll their housekeeping costs into their nightly rates. We choose to simply charge our guests the cost of a check-out clean regardless of the number of nights in their stay so our cleaning fee is broken out. The housekeeping staff for a hotel cleans the same type of room with limited furnishings in a single building. Dirty linens are returned to a location within the same building. Our housekeeping staff cleans homes, some with several bedrooms and bathrooms, across several square miles that are full of furnishings and extra items. Dirty linens must be returned to a centralized location. A standard hotel room can be cleaned in fifteen minutes. A standard 2-bedroom vacation rental can take up to three hours to clean. To keep costs down and to increase efficiency, we ask guests to help our staff by loading and running the dishwasher and emptying the trash. This allows our cleaning staff to move through properties efficiently and helps to keep costs down.

Our hope is that our guests understand the difference between booking a hotel and a vacation rental. Together we can provide affordable vacation rentals and happy stays for everyone!

Q3) What is provided at the property?

A: Each rental property is fully furnished, including small appliances, basic pots and pans (if you are planning on making a special recipe that requires a particular sized dish, please bring it with you), linens, towels, blankets, pillows. Each unit is stocked with towels according to the number of people the unit can sleep. Should you desire a towel exchange during your stay, you may either choose to wash your towels in your unit (providing your unit has a washer/dryer) or exchange them at the office for a fee of $10.00. A total restock of fresh towels and supplies may be purchased at the office for a fee of $15.00. Should you know in advance that you will need more supplies such as extra pillows or blankets, you may want to bring these items from home.

We also furnish supplies sufficient for a three-night stay: paper towels, toilet tissue, facial tissue, liquid dish soap, dishwasher pods, scrubbing sponge, trash bags, bath soap, make-up wipes, shampoo and conditioner. If you need more supplies during your stay, you may purchase them either at the local grocery store or at our office.

If your unit comes equipped with a washer/dryer, you will need to supply your own laundry detergent.

Q4) Can Resort Properties of Angel Fire handle large groups?

A: We have the capacity to accommodate large groups at one time. Many of our properties are in the same building and in some instances right next door to each other. Please call us to discuss your large group needs.

Q5) Does Resort Properties of Angel Fire offer wedding services

A: We do not coordinate weddings, but if you are looking to save a lot of money on the exact same lodging that our competitors bundle in their “wedding packages”, then compare the price of a competitor’s wedding package to the total price of booking everything a la carte. When you do the math, you’ll find out you’re paying a premium just to purchase everything together in a package.

Q6) How do I check-in to the property I am staying at?

A: You can check-in at the Resort Properties of Angel Fire office, 52 North Angel Fire Rd, between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

If you need to check-in after hours’, we will include the instructions in your confirmation letter. Early check-in may be available for a $25 fee.

When you make your reservation, your credit card information is kept on file until you check out of the property and it has been cleaned. If there’s any damage to the property, you will be contacted and your credit card will be charged to cover the cost. Remember you are the guest at someone’s second home. All we expect is the same courtesy and respect you would show a friend if you were staying overnight.

Please note this service may not be available during the peak-season.
