Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, well decorated, and a perfect place to unwind after a few days of camping. Somewhere nice to call home for this leg of my trip.

Charming house in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. It maintains its local feel but with modern updates. Great screened in back porch. Walking distance to restaurants and cafes. Rose was great and was very accessible to recommend restaurants and other activities. We definitely will be coming back and staying in this house!

Great relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the house. Everything was better than expected and extremely comfortable for 2 people. Enjoyed reading under the tree in the side yard and sleeping late. Great value as well. Now for a 6'4" person that shower did present a challenge!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay! Guesthouse Marfa was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed for a long, relaxing weekend. The kitchen was cozy, yet well-appointed. The bed was so comfortable that I barely had the opportunity to watch movies at night. I really enjoyed the backyard and screened-in porch in the early morning and evenings. All that, and friendly neighbors in a quiet part of town made for a perfect stay!

Rose was very responsive and welcoming. Highly recommended!
