This property is comfortable, quiet, relaxing, spacious, and easy to work with.

  • 5 of 5

This was an annual family vacation trip including 4 generations. Every member of the family enjoyed the home. It has easy access and allows for early risers and late nighters to live in harmony due to the homes layout. Our stay was for 8 days. The property is secluded and quiet. We never saw a neighbor. The skies and scenery are fabulous. The owner is easy to work with and quick to help. We made easy day trips to Big Bend, Marfa, Fort Davis and of course Alpine. This is one of my favorite properties in 8 years of VRBOing. It has a comfortable country living feel inside and out.

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

This is a neat house - big, and just a little bit funky to make you smile. Room for everyone and everything you could ask for. Great for cooking dinners together. Good home base for kayaking in Big Bend, hiking, and visiting Alpine.

Wonderful getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to rent a house for our recent trip to Alpine and luckily I found this property. The house is huge and it easily accommodated everyone in my group. Sitting on the deck at night stargazing is truly amazing and watching the wildlife was great. You know it's a great place when your week's stay is up and you want to extend it a few days. We will be coming back.

House with ample room on a beautiful property!

  • 4 of 5

The ranch is stunning. If you want peace and quiet with big Texas views, this is the place. The house itself had plenty of room for our group of 8 to spread out. We especially enjoyed the multiple living areas and great back patio. A portion of the house has trouble staying up with the summer heat. Other than that, the stay was wonderful.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It was so nice to be home instead of a hotel. We had plenty of room yet were able to get away from the group if needed. You had everything we needed. I am searching for a new event so I can come back again.
