The Casita at Cochineal is all about comfort, style and convenience. A place where you can dress it up or dress it down as your mood dictates. Upon arrival, enjoy our gift of a bottle of cold Champagne and let relaxation begin! You can choose to cook in, dine out or have dinner catered, by Cochineal, to your own private casita and courtyard for parties of up to 6 persons. Big Bend light invades the space via multiple skylights and picture windows bring in the big sky and outdoors. Decorated with modern furniture, photography and artwork, we have kept the décor purposefully minimal, clean and crisp - like Marfa itself. We look forward to helping you arrange most any adventure you wish! Gliders, Bikes, Mountains and the Rio Grande. With the Chinati Foundation's recent designation as a World Monuments Site, Marfa provides a rare opportunity to explore modern art.
This was the perfect home base for visiting Marfa! As we soon discovered many restaurants in Marfa are hard to count on without calling hours in advance, so staying at the Casita was perfect because we were always able to get a reservation at Cochineal, right out our front door, whenever we needed, and the food was delicious and the best in town. The Casita is charming and beautiful and had everything the two of us needed, including two wonderful owners, Paul and Tom. We explored the town and area during the day, so the location was perfect for walking around town and coming back for a mid-afternoon snack and siesta. Highly recommend this property!
Loved our stay. There were three of us and we were very comfortable. Marfa is one of my favorite places to be and this was an added feature. It felt at home!!!
Location is central to everything! Garrick responds to requests and questions almost instantaneously. The house is simply stated, perfect shaded courtyard to leave the screen door open for fresh air and everything was in perfect condition. Cochineal is hands down the best delivery service ever - they open the gate, knock on the door, set down the service and bring the courses in one by one. If you are even considering, you should have already booked before it is too late.
The design is minimalistic but the Casita offers all creature comforts. While it is an excellent lodging choice in Marfa (maybe the best), the biggest advantage is being able to order delivery from Cochineal (the restaurant). We placed an order on 2 of the 3 nights we stayed and it was served as if we were in the restaurant. When you have a puppy this is BETTER than room service in a hotel. We had a great stay and will definitely be back when we return to Marfa.
As others have noted there is noise from the restaurant kitchen during the evening but we brought a fan to mask the noise and it worked perfectly.
Our stay in La Casita was a perfect choice to enjoy our time in Marfa. Nice, cosy and beautiful we were right in the middle of the little town. And with the help of Garrick Stephens tips we could get the best from Marfa and Big Bend.
We ended up here with our two dogs for a last-minute stopover in Marfa that turned into three wonderful days. We loved dining in the "back yard" at Cochineal, and strolling around Marfa just steps from our door. Garrick is a fabulous host and we can't wait to come back! And just for the record, we had solid wifi from check-in to check-out. Thanks so much!
