Nice stay

  • 5 of 5

My family rented 2 homes within a block of each other for our Marfa, Fort Davis and observatory trip. My sons family enjoyed the convenient location of this house. It is right across the street from the Paisano Hotel and walking distance to many shops, restaurants and bars. The home was clean and comfortable.

Cute, comfortable, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need (including even some intensive hand cream if you’re skin isn’t accustomed to the dry climate). The kitchen, bathroom, living room...every single room had pretty much anything you might need, and light switches were all labeled (which was helpful, as there were lots of switches). The style and decor were pleasant. The backyard was great. From this location (across the street from Paisano Hotel) you can walk to almost anything you might want or need. I would absolutely stay here again!

Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This charming and beautifully updated adobe house is just across the street from the Paisano Hotel, a block from the Presidio County Court House, and a block and a half from the St. George Hotel. Gorgeous wood floors, comfortable furniture, a nicely updated kitchen, and a laundry room with nicer washer and dryer than we have at home. Wi-fi that's fast enough to allow us to plug our Roku into the TV and watch our show on Hulu. Kitchen has all the pans and utensils you'll need, although we only cooked one meal in our three days there. The king bed has the most comfortable mattress - I'm hoping the owners will tell us the brand and model so we can buy one to replace our BeautyRest! Both bedrooms have plenty of room and closet space, as well as desk/table space. The second bedroom, which we used more as a dressing area, since it is adjacent to the bathroom, also has a day bed and a trundle bed under the queen bed. The bathroom is small-ish, with only a single lavatory. The shower/tub/toilet area is a little tight, but makes good use of the space available. But again, plenty of storage space with a built-in shelf. The owner has provided many good-quality bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths, as well as soap/body wash, shampoo and conditioner. In fact, all of the linens in the house are very nice quality. This is a place I could live in. Interesting artwork/photos all over the house. A very large patio with hammock, dining table and chairs, a couple of rockers with table and ottoman, a fire pit, propane grill, and four lounge chairs. We made good use of the rockers, sitting out during the day and into early evening. The large trees keep the sun off. Our last night, we grilled steaks and enjoyed a fire in the fire pit, watching the stars come out, listening to the train go by, enjoying a beautiful day in mid-November. But the train won't bother you when you're indoors because of those 18-inch adobe walls, which make for very quiet sleeping conditions. All in all, a nearly perfect place. When we come back to Marfa, we'll definitely want to stay here.

Well cared for Adobe in center of Marfa

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay here. Again, we found the house immaculate upon arrival. Very comfortable beds, soft linens, and fully stocked kitchen plus lots of bathroom supplies. It’s nice to find shampoo and conditioner , Plus lots of towels. The house is spacious enough to accommodate our family of three and we love the fully fenced, private yard for our child, dogs, fire pit time, and a glass of wine. The owner takes hosting seriously and appears to anticipate the needs of guests.
