  • Perfect home away from home

    "We had an amazing time at the Windmill Retreat! The house was perfect for two and felt like our own home away from home. We enjoyed spending nights on the porch and having breakfast in the courtyard. One thing I was worried about was the bathroom (only because there weren't pictures), but it was great and up to the standards of the rest of home. This place is so charming and really made our stay in Marfa that much better! We unfortunately had some rainy days, but having this house to cozy up in was just perfect! I would highly recommend!"

  • Great modern space!

    "We loved our three days in Marfa at this bright, modern, airy house, easy to find, and the owner made it super simple to get in once we arrived. We came to see the Perseids meteor shower and the backyard was a great vantage point the first night. Unfortunately we got rain after that, but the screened porch was the perfect place to watch the storms come and go, eat meals, or just gaze at the lovely xeriscaped backyard. Clean, thoughtfully appointed, fun artwork perfectly scaled to the space, nice crisp linens, three options for sleeping - soft, medium, and firm. The ladder to the loft took a *little* getting used to---could be an issue for older travelers or anyone with an injury or other limitation. Rain showerhead wasn't the strongest water pressure, and does splash a bit so be aware of that before you step in. It's 25 mins to the Prada store, well situated for excursions to Ft. Davis, the McDonald Observatory, and Balmorhea. Right next door to a pho restaurant (Marpho, get it?), a two minute walk from a Mexican food restaurant. Close to El Cheapo liquor but their inventory is NOT cheapo, so I'd recommend bring your own if you want wine, beer or cocktails. Other things to note - if you're sharing space with people you don't know well, there's not a ton of privacy, but for two people or a family of four, was just right, especially as what you give up in having a bunch of rooms with doors, you gain back with the light and high ceilings, clerestory windows letting in plenty of sun. It is on Marfa's main street, so there's night traffic with 18-wheelers, and you can hear the train, but that is pretty much the case from Marathon to Valentine and beyond. Thanks so much; we hope to be back!"

  • Excellent rental in a beautiful setting

    "This place is fantastic and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going to the Big Bend area. My wife and I stayed over labor day weekend and had a fantastic time. The house is great, up-to-date and very functional. They have everything you might need including a mean looking telescope which I could not figure out. Super easy logistics getting in and out of the place. We'll be back."

  • Excellent View and Very Well Maintained But no communication from Owner

    "Great View and beautiful place. Very well equipped with all the needs you need. Kitchen is very well equipped. Few things that need attentions is once you enter to the gate (especially when its dark) you need to make immediate left to get to the house. We went straight and had to turn back basically it is on the direction that the owner sends but who is going to look when cell phone signal is really weak. The owner needs to put a sign or something where to turn. Second we called the owner to get some information about stores and food no response. Called the owner 4 times 3 from the house phone and 1 form my personal number. I believe it should be a common courtesy to return the call back especially when a family is new to this place and have no idea. Other than this issues this place is great and good for families to stay. We might consider renting it again but lets see."
