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.

Great First Visit to Marfa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Marfa and we chose the Casa Amarilla as our place to stay. We had four in our party and felt like the home was perfect for our group. The interior looked new and everything operated perfectly. It was only a few moments from the heart of Marfa. The property manager was extremely responsive as well. This would be my first choice on a follow up trip.

Our family really enjoyed staying at this property! It was equipt with everything we could need and very near town (not that anything was far away in Marfa, haha). It had a beautiful yard to enjoy and grill in!

Great backyard!

Great location! Great yard! But....there was a mouse in the house and the bed with the brown bedding is so hard it made sleep impossible - even after a Saint George frose!

Owner's Response: I regret that this incident happened during your stay. I had a professional exterminator come in right after your stay. The matter has been resolved. This was the first incident that has happened and we regret that it happened to you.

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.
