Recent Terlingua reviews

  • Spring Break 2014

    "Villa Terlingua was the ideal home base for our Big Bend adventures. With growing preteen/teenage children, our family needs room to spread out. The indoor spaces of this home are cozy and the outdoor spaces are breathtaking. The house is rustic, eclectic, and obviously built with love. Rustic does not mean roughing it, however. Hot water on demand in the middle of a ghost town! Who knew? Don't forget to look for the fossils in the shower. And for those who feel the need to stay connected to the outside world, there is internet access. The kitchen is well equipped, but you will want to stock up on groceries in Fort Stockton or Alpine before you make the trek to Terlingua. The local market is fine in an emergency, but expensive and limited. The real treasure of Villa Terlingua is the owner. What an amazing individual. She is a river and back country guide, a scholar, a protector of the environment, an activist, a volunteer, a respected community member. Her knowledge of and love for the area was indispensable as we planned our daily activities. Thanks to her guidance and connections, my husband and I felt very comfortable taking our children across the recently opened border to Boquillas del Carmen for the afternoon. We can't wait for Spring Break 2015 at Villa Terlingua."

  • Beautiful Views

    "After spending the night in Alpine and then touring the whole region (Fort Davis, Marfa and Terlinqua Ghost Town) we are SO glad we chose to stay with Curt. he is just close enough to make Big Bend an easy trek and just far out enough that we felt a little like we were camping. All the friendly four legged hosts were a definite plus. Curt was generous with his time and stories and definitely made us feel at home. This will be our Big Bend spot from now on! Enjoy y'all!"
