Perfect little home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and location. Loved the decor too. Marfa is very quiet at the beginning of the week, so we cooked dinner and breakfast there and the kitchen had all the appliances and utensils we could need. Loved the patio and use of a washer and dryer. The bed was awesome! My lower back loved it so much, we want one just like it for our own house! (Tempurpedic?) Our only issue was the remodel noise going on around us (on other properties), but that will be done soon enough, I'm sure. Great location around the corner from Stellina's -which was really good for dinner. We would definitely stay again if we were visiting the area. It was perfect for our needs. Thank you!

Ideal rental

  • 5 of 5

The West Texan was perfect for our visit to Marfa: cozy and within walking distance of most of the town's galleries, restaurants and historical sites.

Gorgeous home, perfect launch point to explore Marfa

  • 5 of 5

The location of the West Texan house in the center of Marfa made it very easy to walk everywhere -- across the street for dinner, two blocks down for cocktails, around the corner for breakfast tacos. The house itself is spacious, clean, and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on lounge chairs in the backyard and stargazing, and also getting some much needed sleep on the extremely comfortable beds. We had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway, and Lauren was also very, very helpful with advice and support leading up to our stay.

An highly confortable and enjoyable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and spacious. Also very confortable. We enjoyed naps in the hammock and barbecues in the patio. Marfa is an excellent base to discover the region.
