Why Jamy Kazanoff chose Marfa

A home for friends from near and far in Marfa, Texas. Built in the mid-50s and transformed for comfort and style into a modern studio home, stainless kitchen, custom shower, king bed, all new and in the heart of one of Marfa's most desirable streets. Just a two block walk from Marfa downtown galleries, dining and courthouse, this home with an interesting history is tucked behind landscaped gardens and outdoor living space. Modern Marfa new was once the hub of a skilled artisan fabricating hand-made wooden propellers shipped around the world. Serene, elegantly restored, and close to the hub of Marfa, this home welcomes guests to enjoy this gathering place.

What makes this house unique

Authentic, stylish, fully restored, guests may walk to favorite restaurants and downtown festivals. Enjoy the benefits of close in, yet serene and private.

Not Quite up to Expectations

  • 3 of 5

The room was cool and pleasant but bath towels were put away damp and some of the electrical outlets didn't work until owner advised us the location of a switch that controlled them. The shower has no soap dish and with no curtain the water pools on the bathroom floor creating a possible hazard. Even though the owner was able to arrange a small refund for the inconveniences, the overall cost appears to be a bit over market.

Owner's Response: I respectfully thank you for your feedback and offer the owner's clarification to your review. The custom, hand-tiled, spacious, and open shower was hand-made for the bathroom to be modern in concept. Guests must point the shower head to the inside of the shower. If pointed outside of the large and open shower, the floors and towels outside the shower may dampen. This may have affected your bathroom experience. Thank you

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Casita for a weekend to celebrate my birthday in Marfa. Before arrival, Jamy contacted us several times to make sure we had all the necessary information we needed to get access to the home and the Casita was very easy to find once getting to Marfa. Once we arrived, we found everything in tip top shape! Jamy made sure to leave us information regarding all the local restaurants and made sure we had access to the Wifi. Although we did not spend too much time in the Casita, it was a great size and easily accommodated both of us. It's nice to come back to a place and not feel like you're right on top of each other, as you would in a hotel room. I would highly recommend the Casita to anyone I know traveling to Marfa.

comfortable, clean casita

  • 5 of 5

this marfa casita is a perfect place for a couple to spend a few days. within easy walking distance of the courthouse square, it is just outside the commercial core in a residential neighborhood, very near some of donald judd's "city" buildings. comfortably furnished, it is remarkably clean and well-maintained.
