About the property

What would be better than spending your vacation in this spacious and clean home in a QUIET neighborhood (no noisy trains) with gorgeous mountain view, adjacent to a 9-hole public golf course, and within walking distance to the beautiful Kokernot park, city pool, tennis courts, soccer fields and baseball fields? Gaze at stars at night right from the front porch along with occasional views of wildlife in the beautiful sunset. Conveniently located with only a 2-3 minute drive to the Museum of Big Bend (Sul Ross State University), grocery stores, Amtrak train station, downtown dining, movie theater, and shops. Alpine is centrally located between Marfa (26 mil), Fort Davis (24 mil), Marathon (27 mil) and the Big Bend National Park (90 mil) . Plan day trips to explore the scenic Big Bend National Park, attend star parties at McDonald Observatory (with the world's 5th largest Hobby-Eberly Telescope) or investigate the mysterious Marfa Lights at night, and still be able to come home for sleep. No need to unpack and repack for every place you go! Experience the joy of having a true vacation right at this west Texas "home away"! Cable TV and internet are included.

***IMPORTANT! Fireplace in living room and two wall propane heaters in bedrooms are alternative heat sources for EMERGENCY power loss only. Please DO NOT use them EXCEPT when there is no other power sources available. Please call manager if you have any questions. Thank you so much for your attention!

About Jonie

Committed to serving middle class domestic and international travelers with plans to explore beautiful Big Bend.

Why Jonie chose Alpine

Excellent location and large size were perfect for raising children. Close to parks, schools (college, high school, elementary school and private Christian school) and grocery stores.

What makes this house unique

Spacious. Many bedrooms and bathrooms. Away from train noise in a quiet neighborhood close to Sul Ross University. Large backyard with privacy fence allows kids and pets to have a lot of safe play space.

Large home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained home with lots of room. Decor was eye pleasing and furnishings were comfortable. We especially enjoyed the various species of birds in the backyard. Although we dine out, the kitchen was equipped with adequate dishes, pots, & utensils. It is located in quiet neighborhood - far enough from trains, etc., but close enough to airport, medical facilities, restaurants, etc. We would love to return and stay longer. I would recommend to anyone that would enjoy more privacy and space than a hotel provides. My sincere thanks to Jonie for providing a wonderful accommodation for our Alpine/Terlingua visit.

Perfect housing!

  • 5 of 5

I coordinated housing for a large group of colleagues and Jonie's home was perfect for a couple of them! She was more than helpful and very quick to respond and communicated clearly. I would absolutely love to work with / stay at Jonie's again.

Clean, spacious and well laid out.

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculately clean, nice kitchen with adequate dishes and utensils, and everything worked. Bedroom was spacious and airy, bathrooms large and very clean. Lots of windows allow for plenty natural light and the views are spectacular. Furniture in the living room was new and very comfortable.The park and golf course across the street were a nice bonus. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to a friend and plan to return myself. Jonie is a joy to work with and will do anything in her power to make sure the tenant is happy.
