"This place was amazing it had everything we needed. The scenes are beautiful and it's super peaceful when cars aren't driving down the road but it barely even happens. The night skies were amazing. 4 people were in my group & both of us were comfortable and thought it was very private like. I'd definitely come back to visit. Small convenient stores & gas stations are only 4-7 miles away also long draw pizza is what to look out for when finding this place. It is literally right next to it. They're pizza ain't bad Btw it was good."

"We loved each and every minute at beautiful La Esmeralda where our days here were measured by sunrises and sunsets; reading and napping on the glider; the soft rustle of the breeze through the Cottonwood; candlelit dinners on the screened porch; relaxing in the comfy living chairs each evening with a glass of wine, listening to great CDs by candlelight with the cool spring breeze dancing between the front and back screened doors; sitting in awe under the vast starry night skies and crescent moons; the sounds of silence only interrupted by the song of the birds and the gentle rumble and whistle of the train.
We enjoyed the friendly, sleepy town of Marathon, and a four hour hike in nearby Big Bend National Park, but we were so happy to return to this beautiful home where we rested and breathed deep! We thank the owner for sharing her home with us, her warm hospitality, and making our stay so wonderful - much love, peace and the good things of life reside at your La Esmeralda. We are under her spell. It was hard to leave, but we are already planning to return to this lovely, peaceful retreat next spring."

"Spent a week at the Austinite Marfa with some extended family in July 2015. The house is great. It's warm, roomy, and well-equipped. We used the kitchen extensively, did our own laundry, slept great, and just had a marvelous time. The outside patio and grill is perfect and we spent lots of relaxing time outside.
Management is friendly, attentive, and responsive.
Overall, I would say our stay was perfection and I would highly recommend this property to anyone."
