  • Quiet neighborhood, great place to stay while visiting Big Bend and nearby places ...

    "We had a great time visiting Marfa, Big Bend, McDonald's Observatory, Balmorhea State Park, all day trips from the house. It was neat and cozy. Had a fully stocked kitchen, a washer (no dryer), two full baths with showers meant to quickly get in/get out type (meaning, hot water runs out quickly :). However something needs to be done about the showerheads or maybe it is due to lack of water pressure. That is my only complaint! And although a single story house - each room seems to be on a different level (step here and a step there) - will take a little getting used to. Also you can park outside or you have to move the wire mesh to park inside. Mosquitoes and houseflies got in - although we are were conscious about closing the doors behind us. But this is summer and we are in Texas. It is to be expected. Again I am not taking any stars for these - that is this house's character. Great house. Whoever gets to stay there will I am sure like it as we did. Erin was awesome. Called back promptly every time. And yes, we will definitely stay there again the next time we are in that area."

  • Alpine Rock House

    "The house was very clean, well maintained in the interior, and a great price. It would be greatly improved by having a regular bed in the 3rd bedroom instead of a futon and if one of the couches were a pull out instead of a blow up. We had no problems once there, but none of the links Ginger sent to us before hand worked, and the tone of email conversations with her were short and she seemed annoyed. We enjoyed the house, but with a large group of adults in the future I would look for a place with 3 full beds and an agent that appreciates the business."

  • outstanding vacation home

    "First off, I'll say that the owner of the house lives close by and is very responsive to questions via phone and text, plus she is a nice person. She has done an outstanding job of stocking the house with most anything you need, and the house is very clean and comfortable. Wifi, nice TV but really, we were there to explore West Texas. New appliances, plenty of hot water for showers, we much prefer this to any hotel anywhere."

  • Great "Home Base" for Big Bend Family Vacation

    "This vacation home was the perfect fit for our family vacation in the Big Bend Area. It's a pleasant <10 mile drive south of Alpine and just enough off the road to give spectacular views and peace and quiet. We had everything we needed for the retreat that we were looking for--quaint, spacious, updated house with beautiful features and very nice touches, close enough to sites and shopping, but far enough away for quiet and stargazing (or moon gazing) at night. During our week, we visited the Museum of the Big Bend (at Sul Ross State University), the observatory at Ft. Davis, the swimming hole at Balmorhea, Marfa (of course), ghost town at Terlingua, Lajitas (with the goat mayor), Big Bend State Park, and Big Bend National Park. Alpine (closest town to the house) is plenty big for everything we needed (groceries, drugstore, etc.), and has its own charm and character as well, with plenty of local favorites (CowDog!) and interesting sites to see. We were pleasantly surprised to see not only fresh-picked flowers put out for us at the house, but also fresh eggs from Marfa. We felt like we had been welcomed into a friend's home, not some anonymous hotel. We made plenty of use of the games, books, and cookware provided (and learned to wonder how we had made it this far in life without a cast iron griddle). We would return to this retreat in a heartbeat, and are already trying to figure out when we can make that happen!"
