Recent Marfa reviews

  • 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!"

  • 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"

  • Fantastic getaway!

    "The house was beautiful and had everything we needed, and more! Mike and Kaci even brought us home-grown tomatoes from their garden. A wonderful couple with a wonderful house to stay in! Location was great (we couldn't stop eating lunch at the Food Shark truck across the street, I highly recommend that as well)!"

  • Perfection!

    "I just spent the month of August in the Windmill House and found it to be perfect. So much thought was put into to making it most comfortable and user friendly for the renter. It's spare, in the positive Marfa kind of way, but all of the essentials are provided. Furniture and bed is comfortable, kitchen well equipped, WiFi excellent, air-conditioner efficient, linens high-quality. The house was impeccably clean on my arrival and very easy to maintain. And the view from the porch is magnificent! When I first arrived I was concerned that the house seemed to be located on the edge of town. But after spending a month there I realized the location is ideal. I'm female and spent the month alone in the house and felt totally safe. It's about a six minute walk to the main street of town and the advantage of the location is absolute quiet and unobstructed eastern views. I spent hours in the butterfly chairs on the porch just watching the sunrise, Texas storms rolling through, rabbits frolicking in the grass, road-runners bouncing around and Hummingbirds feeding on the flowers. The landscaping around the house is perfectly suited to the environment. The owners could not have been more communicative and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend the Windmill House to anyone who is looking for the quintessential Marfa experience."
