"We enjoyed our stay in Marfa and this home was part of the reason. We were there for my brother's wedding, and this house fitted our entire family. It was close to all the sites, the linens and towels were plenty and comfy, and the fact that there is a code to get in made it easy for all of us to do our own thing and not have to deal with keys.
I would definitely stay here again."

"When we found this location online we knew we were in for a treat !! But NOTHING could have prepared us for what we would found !! The views, the wildlife, the location- ALL of it was outstanding!! We are already talking about our next visit and can't wait !! Anyone who goes here will be more than happy with everything - from the location to the views and then to top it off - Big Bend National Park !! Thank You to Daryl and Janet for making this all fall into place without a Flaw !! See you Both Soon !!"

"We just got home from our first trip to the Texas Big Bend area. We originally planned on spending 4 nights in Marfa but could only find accommodations for 2 nights there - so I booked our first 2 nights in Marathon at La Esmeralda. Now I wish we'd never left La Esmeralda. Wow! While the photos on VRBO accurately reflect what you'll find in the house - they still don't do it justice. The house is a knockout - decorated in the most perfectly rustic, Texas style imaginable. Antique bureaus, uniquely quirky lighting and art, beautiful vintage Mexican pottery and what must be the world's most comfortable porch glider. Plus everything to make your stay comfortable - cable TV, a large selection of DVDs, CDs, books and magazines, fluffy towels in the bath, everything you need to prepare and serve meals. You can just feel that this house is loved. If La Esmeralda was mine, I'd never leave - but I thank Carole for sharing it with us - if only for a couple of nights. We'll be back!"

"Four of us stayed at this sweet house for 3 nights. Very comfortable and homey. Well equipped to cook dinners, etc. Nice little yard to sit in. Wonderful location in the heart of town. It's obviously a house that someone actually lives in, lots of charm and interesting things. Definitely recommend, we hope to come back here some day."
