About the property

Comfortable Adobe House. Sleeps 6-8 Easily. Quiet Town Location

When we told locals (Marfans) we bought our house and described where it was everyone said; “Oh the Coach's house.' Many happy memories are present and being made in the house. It is a 3 bedroom / 2 full bath with all the comforts of home. The master bedroom with full bath is in front of the house away from the other bedrooms and newly renovated bathroom. We have two large living areas, high speed internet, dining and breakfast rooms, kitchen, all new bedding and Hot Water on Demand! We try to think of everything you need. Our house is located across from the Marfa schools; be sure to check if the high school teams have a home game! The courthouse square is less than a half mile away, a nice easy walk. Bikes are available with the house. We will consider pets - call to discuss.

About Paula

We are excited to share our lovely home and the beautiful town of Marfa with you. We have a great love of the area and all the special times we have shared in Big Bend (State and National Park). Marfa is a highlight to any trip to West Texas.

Paula purchased this house in 2013

Why Paula chose Big Bend Country

We have been travelling to the Big Bend area for more than a decade. After camping, we always ended up in Marfa. Usually it was the highlight of the trip. Great restaurants, walking town, artisans, Banjo Billy, Marfa Lights, Art! Art! Art!, hiking .... So much to do in Marfa. Our house is the perfect family house for a crowd of 4-8. You can spread out in our 2400 square feet. We have 2 baths, a true luxury in Marfa. You will love sitting on the front porch and enjoying the true sounds of the town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time in Marfa! It will definitely be a trip to remember. We enjoyed your house and loved how it felt like our home during our stay. Thank you so much for your recommendations on things to do during our visit. I would love to make another trip and would stay at your house again.

P.S. We really enjoyed your record collection too!

Excellent large comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is large and comfortable. The beds are comfortable and two sitting rooms make it easy for multiple people to relax. The record collection and games added extra fun. The owner Paula is extremely accommodating and helpful. Thanks for a great trip!

casual and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay In Marfa. The house was within walking distance of town and the bikes made for an easy and fun ride to and from town. The record collection was absolutely amazing and we spent way more time than we expected listening to music and building a puzzle. Paula was very helpful and accommodating. We absolutely loved it.

Excellent Spacious Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fabulous. We went for Chinati weekend and loved it. It was a short bike ride from everything going on in town. Great porches to sit and hangout on. The vinyl collection is dynamite! We highly recommend it and hope to stay there again in the future. Thanks for everything Paula!

Spacious home, well maintained on the west side of town

  • 5 of 5

Paula was great to communicate with, readily available to answer any questions by email. The house is spacious with two bedrooms and a bath on one side, and another bedroom and in-suite bath on the other side. There are two separate living areas, we hung out mostly in the dining room and living room because they got lovely day light. The house is well stocked with linens, kitchen supplies, soap and shampoos. We cooked almost every night and morning, enjoying the use of the big kitchen. I adored the stove. It's an old and loved house, everything was clean and well maintained. We were there in August and never used the air conditioning, though the bedrooms all have a unit. Fans are placed throughout the house and we made some use of them. All in all, a great place to stay when in Marfa. Thank you Paula!

Wonderful Marfa Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Marfa for a long girls' weekend and really enjoyed this house! There is a lot of room for everyone to have their own space, but it still feels cozy. The house is clean and well kept. It is withing walking distance to most of the restaurants and galleries. Paula was extremely quick to respond, easy to work with, and the epitome of warm Texas hospitality. She also sent recommendations on where to eat, what to do, and even included the hours of her recommendations. We will definitely stay in this house again on future Marfa trips!

So well appointed and immensely comfortable! Loved this vintage home.

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my 10 day stay in this fabulous home. It has a spacious layout and plenty of privacy, with every amenity you could possibly need. Within walking distance of fabulous eateries, galleries, museums and more. It was my first visit to Marfa, but it won't be my last. It's my new favorite destination and the Coach's House is where I want to stay.

Located near town center, across from the Marfa Elementary School, our home is a peaceful place to start all your Marfa explorations. It is a nice walk to the courthouse/downtown area. Our house was built in the 1930's from adobe. Over the years, it was added onto so it is a large home perfect for more than one couple or a family. If you are in town during the week, catch a Marfa Shorthorn basketball game. Sit on our patio and star gaze. We are one block from the Lannan Foundation Park with its 'log' furniture. Just walk down Gonzales street to endless hiking trails through the ranch lands surrounding Marfa. Drive to Chinati, Fat Lyle's, and El Cosmico.
