Recent Big Bend Country reviews

  • 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."

  • Great place for family gathering

    "We had a family reunion at this property in July 2014. It was an ideal place for such an event. The photos in the listing do not do it justice--it's a beautiful, large property, and the optional additional apartment in the back is wonderful too. Highly recommended!"

    "Casa Vida is a beautiful, eclectic home and perfect for a family wishing to see Big Bend as well as other local sights. With four kids we found it to be spacious with everyone having a comfortable place to sleep. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for our stay there. My husband and kids enjoyed searching the grounds for horny toads and were able to spot and take pictures of a few of them. We had a lovely time and would definitely stay in Casa Vida again or recommend it to friends!"

  • Great trip to meet my grandson!

    "We had a great trip to El Paso to visit my son, daughter-in-law and new grandson! Also our granddaughter from a previous relationship. She stayed with us and 2 other granddaughters at the property and they had a great time. The home is clean, well furnished and had everything we needed. The owner and her son both were friendly and helpful. The home is completely fenced, including the parking area for your vehicle. This was our second stay at a VRBO property and find it much preferred over staying at hotels."
