Casa Mañana: Walk To Downtown from this Contemporary Adobe Home

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,456 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Casa Mañana is a historic adobe duplex that was converted into a beautiful single family home with every modern convenience. Just two blocks from the courthouse, its location could not be better! Renovated in 2007, the home has a beautiful new kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a gas range and dishwasher. The screened in porch off the kitchen is a great place to relax in the morning with coffee or finish the day with Margaritas in a mosquito free setting. The Casita is only 20 feet from the house and while close enough to feel included in the fun, offers privacy from the house for groups with guests on different schedules.

We now also offer the beautiful, newly updated Casita in the adjoining back yard for rental. The Casita cannot be rented alone, only in conjunction with rental of the Casa. It is airy and tranquil with 1 king-sized bed, 1 bath with full kitchen, living room and laundry machines. Beautifully furnished with a mix of DWR, Room & Board, vintage and antique pieces. Perfect for groups that have early to bed (or rise) types mixed with late nighters. Or just those that need to spread out. Just steps from the main house.

Why Cecilia Longoria (owner)/Elaine Mustard (Property Mgr.) chose Big Bend Country

Casa Mañana was renovated in 2006 and offers modern conveniences with historic ambiance. The home is bright and spacious with contemporary and regional interior decor. The house was originally built as a duplex and now combined, offers multiple living, dining and entertaining spaces. The large fenced outdoor space has plenty of room to entertain at the large concrete table and to relax in the outdoor lounge furniture next to the fountain. Come stay and enjoy what are, according to the owner, the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in Texas.

What makes this house unique

Close proximity to downtown, but with the benefit of just enough distance for peace and quiet. The house has real central air conditioning and heat- no swamp coolers here! Large corner lot has great outdoor spaces for entertaining.

Beautiful and comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 boys and in-laws and the house couldn't have been better. The casita was perfect for the grandparents. The main house was stocked with everything you could need. The covered porch was our favorite spot to lounge.

2nd time staying here, still great!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house for our annual trip to Marfa for NYE with friends. The way the house is laid out, it feels like each couple has their own wing of the house, but we still have plenty of communal area to get together. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and kitchenware you'd need for making "family" meals, and the location is on a quiet street, but still walkable to everything in Marfa. We also loved being able to bring our dog and have a fenced in area this year. Also, the bed in the casita is SO comfortable. We'll be back again for sure!

Amazing Family Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal time at Casa Mañana!! This was our first time in West Texas and, Casa Mañana was the perfect "home base" as we explored the surrounding area. It was so easy to find, incredibly comfortable and had all the amenities you would expect (and more). Our family occupied both the house and the casita during the Thanksgiving holiday and the fully stocked kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed to cook a complete Thanksgiving feast! The patio areas and garden are so peaceful and gave us ample room to spread out. We enjoyed every inch of it. Big thanks to the hosts, Elaine and Cecilia, for all the communication beforehand and for their willingness to be available should we need anything during our stay. Quite frankly, however, everything was so easy and just as it was described on VRBO that we really didn't need to reach out to them at all. We are already dreaming about our next trip to Marfa and Big Bend, and when we do go, we'd love to stay at Casa Mañana again.

Owner's Response: You were my dream guests, it was hard to believe you actually stayed at Casa Manana because it was left so neat and tidy! We appreciate your business and hope that you will come back to Marfa. When you hear that West Texas "Call" please let us know, and we will have a place for you to stay to make more "Marfa" memories.

Perfect home for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Manana was the perfect setting for our vacation. The home is an eclectic mix of beautiful high end furnishings that come together in a welcoming, Marfa way. The kitchen in the main house is stocked with everything one needs (pots/pans, utensils, serving dishes, dishes, glasses, spices, etc) to make home cooked meals-which we did a couple of times during our visit. You could actually throw a big party if you wanted too! The back yard is fenced with a yard large enough for our German Shepherd puppy to have a great time. The beds are very comfortable with high quality linens. The casita was equally well appointed providing the right amount of space and privacy for our friends. I also appreciated the small details such as coffee branded for Casa Manana with half & half, fresh flowers and a personal note from Cecilia. In addition, I truly appreciated the responsiveness of Cecilia, John and her sister, Elaine when needed some help with the new gas grill. It is centrally located within easy walking distance from the town square and dog park. I enjoyed my daily walks in the neighbor with my dog. I would highly recommend this home and look forward to a return visit.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many houses in Marfa and this is the best so far. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you would need and the space itself is awesome. Super comfortable.

Thanks a bunch!
