"This was our second time to rent this vacation home and it accommodated us very nicely. Our children enjoyed themselves and the location is close to family whom we were visiting in the area. We hope to visit again soon, thanks Ellie!"

"We had a great holiday weekend relaxing in Marathon. The house is wonderful. Great location because it's tucked away and remote,but only a five minute walk to town. It was a good jumping off point for days in Big Bend. We loved that it is dog friendly. The only thing that would make the stay even better is if the kitchen had a few more cooking utensils to make it easier. But really no complaints. And the view was fantastic four morning coffee or evening woke!"

"This place is beautiful! After a short off road experience you end up at the front gate of Tarantula Ranch. We stayed at Curt's guest house for 3 nights. Curt is honestly quite an amazing host! We were welcomed with the best margaritas (made just for us!), lots of friendly and helpful conversations about the park and the area, and I took my dogs and felt safe leaving them there during the day (he even offered to check on them during power outages). It's a short 40 minute drive to the park (make sure you take hwy 118 and not Marathon). I really enjoyed staying here for several reasons, we enjoyed talking with Curt, seeing his animals, getting some local insight, seeing lots of wild life on the drive to and from the park, star gazing at night, and being near Ghost Town for dinner. We had two couples and the way the living room is set off to the side, it worked great for private space! You won't regret staying here! Enjoy!! and Thank you again, Curt... We loved our visit!!"
