  • 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"

  • 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!"

  • Great unexpected stay

    "We never actually planned to come here but heavy rain at the beginning of our stay meant we could not access the LTM house and we were offered this as a replacement house. whilst not as aesthetically beautiful the house became an excellent base for exploring big bend national park.We enjoyed breakfast and sunrise on the veranda enjoying making waffles with the machine provided, we also enjoyed a sunset BBQ. The birds, deer and jack rabbits provided plenty of entertainment and we had the bonus of enjoying some of team GB success at the Olympics as we had the TV. this was a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay and although we left to try out the LTM ranch when the weather improved we could easily have remained here. in a way we ended up with the perfect mix of the two houses. a wonderful stay in Terlingua and many thanks to Janet & family for advising us to adapt our plans and checking that we were having a great stay at both properties."

  • 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."
