Overview

About the property

1 Mile To Courthouse, Studio Layout, Full Bath, Private Courtyard & Kitchenette

If you are looking to unwind in Marfa, you've come to the right place. Located in the Brite Addition of northwestern Marfa, My Casita features exposed adobe walls, a full bath with tub, kitchenette with table, hotel style air conditioning and heat, custom made queen bed, and a private courtyard.

The Brite Addition of Marfa is adjacent to the historical Brite Ranch, which provides pasture views for miles to the north and west. The neighborhood is composed of Mid century and Modern homes on large lots, some on entire blocks. My Casita faces west and is behind a larger contemporary adobe home. It has its own entrance and enjoys privacy from the main residence. All renovation improvements were professionally done with great attention to detail and comfort.

The walled courtyard is the perfect place to enjoy coffee in the morning and a beverage at sunset while you grill. Relax on the sofa with a book in the comfort of air conditioning or surf with WiFi while watching TV. The kitchenette provides most everything one needs for simple meal preparation. The full bath has nice contemporary fixtures and storage.

Great place to stay in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described in the listing, and perhaps better. It's not huge, but it works really well for two people. It's very clean and has a nice bit of character. We spent time sitting outside in the small lawn and relaxing inside. There's not much to cook with, but it worked well for easy breakfast or lunch. And we also liked the location on the edge of Marfa, close enough to walk to downtown but also felt like we were staying almost in the desert.

Two nights in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

My Casita was a perfect place for my 2 nights stay. The detached house offered complete privacy. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. I appreciated the nice touches like high-end toiletries of some of my favorite brands. It was very comfortable, quiet, and clean. I had everything I needed. The layers of blankets on the bed provided the most warm bed I've ever slept in! I enjoyed the 25 minute walk to town. Check-in and out was super easy.

The perfect West Texas base camp

  • 5 of 5

My Casita is pretty great. It's the perfect size for two people, the bed nook is super cozy, the kitchenette is well equipped and the bathroom is spacious. The TV is a bit wonky and the wifi stopped working our last night, but we didn't care because we weren't really using either of those things. The house was very clean save a preponderance of small bugs (no idea what they are) and we only had one encounter with a scorpion, so I'd say that's really good for Marfa. Checking in was super easy (they just left the keys for us in the house), and the homeowner is right next door in the main house and she is very nice.

Originally I was disappointed that My Casita didn't have a full kitchen & was so far from town (it's on the edge of the range, basically. I had looked at the map incorrectly (face palm) and thought it was further east next to Chinati) but then I realized that we wouldn't be eating in at all because Marfa food options have greatly improved over the last couple of years and we had a car so it was easy to get around. If you can, check out Stellina, the everything toast a Do Your Thing, old faithful Frama, tacos & burgers at Boyz2Men/Hombres and of course a plate of nachos at Planet Marfa. The house has a great welcome packet that has all of the "Marfa Time" hours for businesses and ideas for day trips.

I would totally stay here again on future trips. I loved My Casita more than I thought I would.

Great place to stay in Marfa!

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of any negative things about this place. It really has all you need to stay comfortably for a few days. My husband used the grill and cooked three of our meals (breakfast and lunch). We walked from the house into the main part of town and I loved exploring Marfa. We will be back and this place seems to be the best deal!
