I guess I don’t understand what you want in this field as you won’t let me move forward no matter wh
We had a marvelous rainy relaxing weekend! It was all great, but we enjoyed the porch the most! ❤️
Wonderful way to visit Fort Davis
Our rental was cozy and well equipped. We have stayed there three times now, so you know we love it! The covered porch is our favorite feature. One bedroom has two twins and the main room has a king bed, two club chairs with ottomans, and a large tv in a cabinet. The kitchen has all you need if you want to cook. The bathroom has a tub with hand held shower with one handle for balance. A fully fenced back yard is perfect for Star gazing, grilling, and your doggie.
I would have given 5 stars if there were upgraded toiletries in the bathroom. Towels were great.
All in all, a lovely stay.
Thank you! We are happy you enjoyed staying with us again! Please come back! We’ll work on those toiletries. We’d love a 5 star ⭐️ review next time! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great Place with Nice Amenities
My wife and kids stayed here three nights and it was a nice spacious area with all the amenities to include a nice kitchen which had all the utensils we needed and spacious back yard and patio. The only reason we rated it a 4 star was due to some areas like the carpet was dirty with pet hair and the furniture was dusty as well.
Thank you for staying with us! So sorry for the pet hair on the carpet. We will address that immediately. Dust is a constant problem in West Texas for sure. We hope you will visit again!
Relaxed, clean, quiet, and comfy beds
Enjoyed a quiet weekend here. My dogs enjoyed the backyard
We are so happy that you and your furry friends enjoyed your stay! Please come see us again soon. Thanks for staying with us!
Cozy and comfortable. Walking distance to Ft. Davis Drug Store and other shops.
Comfortable place, lovely porch to sit outside any time or day or night. Private and quiet. My only downside would be that it was not originally a two bedroom house. The owners have converted the living area into a bedroom with a queen sized bed. If you are staying in the '2nd bedroom' with the twin beds, you need to be aware that you have to walk through the queen bedroom to access the bathroom or kitchen. This isn't a problem if you are a couple there with children, but it's not necessarily the ideal situation for two adult couples unless you know each other really well. :)
Comfortable and Nice location
We have stayed in this house twice. The porch is very nice to sit and enjoy the Fort Davis weather.
Located just behind its sister property, The Blue Agave, VRBO.com 1076017. These two properties combined are great for a friends/family gathering!
