Beautiful Home, Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

The Dallas house is in a great area walking distance to restaurants and galleries. House is nicely decorated and you feel the Marfa vibe. Well equipped and owner was very responsive and informative to us during the trip. There are two rental units in the home that have separate entrances, would have been nice to know this ahead of time as it was confusing but in the end very enjoyable time.

Very cool, art-filled home that hits the Marfa groove just right

  • 4 of 5

Great house overall. Terrifically stocked with hard and soft goods. A few issues-- no dishwasher that functions is a drag (especially with such great dinner ware!), we had router problems with internet and having to receive key by UPS with signature was inconvenient. Location is great for all sites of value in Marfa and staying there was like being in a gallery! The main bedroom has no door and is very exposed to living space and there are no window covers on large picture window facing street. Very bright light outside dining room that was not switch-activated was unpleasant. Interactions with Bea by both text and phone were good/helpful.

Owner's Response: Update as of February 2017, the barn door has been ordered to close off the bedroom to the TV room, a new dishwasher has been ordered and will be installed in February 2017 The bright light outside of the dining room has been disconnected. Bea ************ Thanks for your feedback and observations about my Dallas House. Since I have to buy a dishwasher in Midland and obtain a truck to deliver the dishwasher, this is something that will happen this month. I will say that so much of my dinnerware is all hand painted and hand made in Marfa and is sensitive to detergents. I will be sure and add a switch to have the light outside the dining room be adjustable. I am going to have a farm door that slides to have more privacy in the master bedroom soon. Thanks a million! -bea

The Capri is a fun. local place for a small meal and creative drinks, Gorgeous bar. Within walking distance from my home too.

You can always go to The Get Go and get your provisions, be sure and try the Marfa Maid Goat Cheeses, this grocery is well stocked with good stuff and Marfa Coffee The Big Bend Sentinel, is the local newspaper, be sure and buy one and check out the local and live entertainment, which changes every week!
