Lovely Experience in Marfa!

  • 5 of 5

This home was in a great location right across the street from the Hotel Paisano. My sisters and I enjoyed the amenities provided in the home, from a fully-supplied kitchen to almost anything else you needed in the bathrooms and bedrooms. It was very clean and exactly as described. I slept really well on the king-sized Temperpedic mattress in one of the bedrooms. The other had a very comfortable queen-sized bed. There were also additional beds available in one of the bedrooms, if needed. The house was nicely decorated with additional touches to make it feel home-like. We were within walking distance of galleries and restaurants. Great location, great house. I would definitely stay here again.

You could not ask for a better location. The home was full equipped and had everything we needed plus! The interior decor was superb; cool, hip and tasteful all at the same time. Thanks for being such a great host!

Lovely Combination of Traditional Comfort and Contemporary Style

  • 5 of 5

The adobe house is spacious, comfortable, clean, and stylish. It evokes the Marfa paradox, a traditional, small Western town with a contemporary art scene. The house has comfortable, modern furniture with Western photographs and other touches and a pleasant contemporary decor. Although we didn't prepare meals, the kitchen appeared to be well-stocked with cooking and serving utensils. Also, our check-in and check-out went smoothly and everything was as Lauren stated in her clear directions. We also had the pleasure of meeting Katie, Lauren's sister, who directed us to the right source for help with a low run-flat tire. In addition, the house is in an ideal location, in the heart of Marfa right across from the El Paisano Hotel and within walking distance of several cafes, restaurants, and art galleries. All in all, I highly recommend this rental.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

When we couldn't find an AirBnB, we turned to VRBO and I didn't know what to expect. The house could not have been more spacious, easy, and comfortable. We were looking for a well located place and found it in this great abode. Super well designed and well stocked, a dream come true for anyone visiting Marfa. We loved it! No complaints I could even imagine.

Perfect!

This is the second time we've rented a property from Lauren and both times it's been incredible!!! The West Texan is beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable! The backyard was our favorite place to hang out-comfy backyard furniture including a hammock!! I don't know when we'll ever get back to Marfa, but if we do we will definitely contact Lauren for a rental!!
