  • Our wonderful stay at Marfa's Best-Chic and Comfortable guest house

    "My son, grandsons and I had a great time in Marfa and Big Bend. Between our adventures, we relaxed and enjoyed Robert's guest house. It provided us all the comforts of home. We loved sitting around the fire pit in the back yard and star gazing (a gorgeous moonless night that showcased a canopy of stars over us). Since my grandsons are now in college, the experience helped bond us as they spoke about all their new adventures. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts at Squeeze Marfa and Marfa Burrito. Of course, we were thrilled to see the Pizza Foundation back in business! Robert's home provided us with all we needed for a trip filled with memories. Thank you, Judy Furche"

  • West Texas Treasure!

    "Tarantula Ranch was exactly what we needed after spending our vacation hiking in Big Bend. Cozy little cabin with plenty of privacy for quiet and relaxing evenings. Curt provided his knowledge, stories, smiles, and friendly pets to make our stay memorable. Plenty of room for my family of 4 with abundant land to explore and a long and relaxing shower to soothe our tired legs from hiking. Already planning our return trip!!"

  • Beautiful and Relaxing

    "Our family of four had a wonderful trip to Big Bend and this cabin was one of the highlights! We loved sitting on the porch to watch the sunrise and sunset each day while our two kids explored. It was the perfect jumping off spot for both the national and state parks or just staying at the cabin to escape the hustle and bustle of life. I would highly recommend this rental to family and friends and we hope to be able to stay again sometime!"

  • 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!"
