Dos Corazones - (Spanish for "Two Hearts") of the Big Bend

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Beautiful custom built adobe home designed in an elegant and classic southwestern style and nestled at the base of the Corazones Mountains. Relax and escape from daily stresses while enjoying the grandest splendor and comfort available in the Big Bend.

Dos Corazones was designed in the tradition of a grand Chihuahuan hacienda. High ceilings, rich wood work, stucco adobe walls, artful stone masonry, and elegant tile floors make every room exquisite and inviting. Many architectural items, including doors, hardware, and fixtures, were salvaged from historic buildings in Mexico, South Africa and Morocco and artfully incorporated into this wonderfully designed home. The interior décor proudly features an extensive collection of folk art, baskets, and textiles that the owners collected from their world travels.

This home is incredibly spacious. There is plenty of room for your entire group to spend time together or for each to claim their own private space. The great room features a comfortable leather sofa and chairs and is the perfect place to relax and tell stories while enjoying expansive mountain views. The den offers a touch of seclusion and is a great place to relax with a good book. The spacious dining room is ideal for sharing meals or playing games. Speaking of meals, the expansive kitchen is a great place to prepare a gourmet meal or a simple snack.

There are two large bedrooms. Each one has its own luxurious bathroom and private patio. The master bedroom has a king size bed, a private bathroom with a large shower and clawfoot tub, and private patio with views of Sombrero Peak and the Rosillos Mountains. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and a full size bed, a private bathroom with a large shower, and a private patio with views of Jack Eden Mesa and desert vistas. All mattresses are high quality memory foam purchased Sept 2017.

Of course, you didn’t drive all this way to stay inside. That’s why Dos Corazones has six different flagstone patios for your enjoyment. The central courtyard features a peaceful water fountain and lots of greenery. The front porch features a built in grill and a small outdoor dining area. The two back porches offer expansive views and plenty of space to stretch out. The private porches attached to each bathroom provide a more intimate setting with privacy walls and lots of greenery.

Want to see the stars at night? Well they are truly big and bright down here in the Big Bend Area. Our remoteness means there is virtually no light pollution to obscure the night sky. The Big Bend Region is recognized and celebrated for having the darkest night skies and best star gazing in the continental United States. Don’t forget to watch for the International Space Station and other orbiting satellites. They can often be spotted in the first hour or two after dusk or before dawn.

Venture into Big Bend National Park or Big Bend Ranch State Park. Visit the Terlingua Ghost Town. Check out the Christmas Mountains. Take a horseback ride or go on a river trip. Cool off in the Terlingua Ranch pool. Check out the local cuisine at the Terlingua Ranch Bad Rabbit Café, in Terlingua/Study Butte, the Terlingua Ghost town, or Lajitas. You won’t be disappointed. There is often live music at the famous La Kiva Bar and Grill, the Starlight Theatre, High Sierra Bar and Grill, or the Terlingua Ranch Bad Rabbit Cafe. There are so many things to see and do you won’t be able to see or do it all.

Stay as busy as you like or just relax and unwind. When you leave Dos Corazones you can be as rested and refreshed, or as exhausted and inspired, as you like. Don’t worry about fitting everything into one trip. We’ll be glad to welcome you back again and again.

Beautiful Big Bend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dos Corazones for four days and three nights over Labor Day weekend. The home was gorgeous, spacious, and comfortable with a view that can't be beat.

Beautiful house and area

  • 5 of 5

We love the Big Bend and Terlingua area. This house was really great with tons of room to spread out and plenty of peace and quite. Everything was clean and well taken care of. This is the second time renting from the Eby's (different house last time) and both times were very quick and easy transactions. Thanks again and we will be booking another trip to the area soon.

Special place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful and filled with charm. The decor was fantastic! It contained all of the amenities our family of children and adults needed to come back to after our Big Bend adventure. The house is very modern, clean and has room for everyone to relax without being on top of each other. We cooked or grilled every meal and found that the kitchen and outdoor grill served all of our needs. We hope to go back soon!

Incredible home and area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 full days in the desert. What a fantastic experience! We visited Big Bend, took some hikes, visited the hot springs, has supper in Terlingua. Drove to Lajitas. The weather is astonishingly different. In the mountain basin 82 and in the desert as high as 109! We enjoyed use of the ranch pool on those hot hike days. The owner of this house takes great pride in creating a true work of art. Our children understood the significance of respecting and reading information throughout the house. A cherished memory!
