Marfa cottage description

La Casita @ Cochineal is all about comfort & convenience. A place where you can dress it up or dress it down as your mood dictates. Upon arrival enjoy our gift of a bottle of cold Champagne and let the relaxing begin! You can choose to cook in, dine out or have dinner catered by Cochineal (Marfa & the regions best restaurant) to your own private casita and courtyard for parties of up to 6 persons. Big Bend light invades the space via multiple skylights & picture windows bring in the big sky & endless outdoors. Decorated with modern furniture, bathroom, kitchen, photography and artwork, we have kept the décor purposefully minimal, clean & crisp - like Marfa itself. We look forward to helping you arrange most any adventure you wish! Gliders, Bikes, Mountains and the Rio Grande beckon !
