About Property Manager

I was born and raised in Marfa, Texas and now live on the East Coast with my wife.

Property Manager purchased this house in 1967

Why Property Manager chose Big Bend Country

This home has sentimental value to me because my parents purchased it brand new in 1967 and raised me, my brother and two sisters here. My siblings and I have all since moved away and I decided to renovate the home because I wanted to keep visiting my home town and to share my house with travelers to the region. The kitchen is special to me because of my memories of my Mom cooking delicious food and the backyard holds fond memories of my dad taking care of the trees, plants and rose bushes.

What makes this house unique

High quality, comfortable furnishings and upscale finishes throughout. This renovation was thorough and no corner was cut. Casa Amarilla has a great kitchen and the backyard is by far one of the best in Marfa.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend the holiday weekend. The huge fenced yard was a perfect place to spend the evening with lots of room for the dog to run and play. The kitchen is well equipped and a grill in the yard was nice for late evening dinners at home. Great communication from the owner before our stay as well as timely responses to questions during our stay. The quaint town offered plenty of options for dining and wandering around and the grocery stores were convenient and sufficient for our needs. We will check availability here first if returning to the Marfa/Big Bend area.

Beautiful, well-equipped home

  • 5 of 5

La Casa Amarilla is the nicest short-term rental we have ever stayed in. It was immaculately clean with beautiful artwork and antiques. The kitchen was full of high-quality appliances, cookware, and dishes. I really can't think of anything that would make it any better.

A Perfect West Texas Getaway: Quaint Casa Amarilla in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

Accompanied by our in-laws, my wife and I headed west from San Antonio for a Thanksgiving weekend adventure in West Texas. We used Marfa as our centralized location to explore Big Bend National Park (2 Hour drive), Marathon, TX (1 hour drive), Fort Davis (30 minute drive) and of course the unique town of Marfa.

We were pleasantly surprised by the home in which we stayed in, the "Casa Amarilla" managed by Jesse Nunez and his wife. The house was perfect for 2 couples and we utilized the TV room for our 5th on a blow-up mattress. The house is fully equipped with kitchen wear, towels, extra pillows etc. A beautiful back yard with outdoor seating compliments the comfortable living areas inside the house. This quite simply was like being at home on the road.

Jesse, homeowner, is very responsive if needed. However, we had everything at our disposal that nothing was needed beyond what the house already provided. Nested just outside of downtown Marfa, this house is the perfect getaway if looking to relax, go out and adventure or simply soak in the Marfa experience.

We highly recommend this property for anyone out there! A perfect 10!

Cheers!

Steve & Sarah

Perfect place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Four of us flew out from Atlanta, GA, and stayed over the Fourth of July holiday this year, and this proved to be the perfect getaway. Everything is walking distance, and the weather was temperate enough that we walked everywhere. The house is maybe ten minute's walk from the city square, so you can be in town in no time but it's also very quiet at night when its time for bed. You wake up to morning doves cooing, which is awesome. The house is very spacious, and the kitchen is definitely first rate... we cooked virtually every night. Also grilled out one afternoon using the gas grill, with some newfound friends. Bed was more comfortable than my own back home! Back yard was green, with nice flower beds, and the patio was a great place to just sit around and enjoy the day. The caretaker Orlando personally came over, introduced himself, and made sure that everything was to our satisfaction-- an awesome touch, and I have to say, probably not unusual for Marfa. People here were so friendly that we found ourselves having conversations with locals everywhere we went.

Can't say when, but we will definitely come back to Marfa, and when we do, this will be where we stay. Highly recommend.
