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 location off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Marfa isn't big, but this casita is perfectly located on the peaceful NW corner of town away from the main road. On a breezy night, you can sleep with the windows open. It's away from all the street lights, so you can stargaze, too.

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little place in Marfa. Very comfortable and just the right size. We had an issue with the hot water heater, but as soon as we contacted the property manager it was addressed. It's very quiet and convenient. Would highly recommend!

This was just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood, this Casita was perfect for two adults. Everything that was advertised is exactly what we received; comfortable and clean accommodations, upscale bathroom fixtures and both artisan and local consumables.

In our case, we never met the owners nor the proprietor, but the instructions were sent to us and everything unfolded without a hitch.

We spent several hours outside each day admiring the quietness, the birds and bunnies ... not necessarily in that order. A bench next to the house on the south side was a perfect seating arrangement for us. My wife commented over and over that this place was "perfect".

Next time we are in Marfa, we will definitely check to see if this Casita is available!

Wonderful space

  • 5 of 5

I came to Marfa for a little solitude and a place to write, and this rental was exactly what I was looking for. Cozy and offered a lot of comfort in a modest space.

Lovely secluded getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Casita in late May 2017 for an anniverary/babymoon trip. Everything was perfect when we arrived and the check in went exactly according to the instructions. The Casita is on the edge of town and surrounded by nice modern homes on all sides. There are just enough amenities inside to keep comfortable and we found the place to be very cozy overall. Downtown Marfa is about a 2 minute drive from the Casita. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
