Manager info

Year Purchased: 1967

About: The Nunez family had this home built in 1967 and it is where their son, the current owner, was raised and lived until graduating from Marfa High. Many years later, although living on the East Coast, the decision was made to renovate his childhood home so that he and his wife could continue to visit family in friends in Marfa. They wanted to share their love of this home and Marfa with travelers to the region and so decided to make it a Vacation Rental.

Why Marfa:
When we travel, we want all the comforts and conveniences of our own home- laundry machines, a loaded kitchen, quality furnishings and outdoor space to dine and relax. So when I decided to renovate my childhood home we made sure the house had all of these features.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
High quality, comfortable furnishings and upscale finishes throughout. This renovation was thorough and no corner was cut. Casa Amarilla has a kitchen an epicure will love. No need to worry about the erratic Marfa restaurant hours when you can enjoyably prepare and serve meals at Casa Amarilla.
