Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and small families. Set in town on 1/2 acre, the house is 1250 square feet indoors, with additional covered 300 sq feet under porches. Outdoor fireplace is fabulous at night, morning sunrises on the porch are even better. Valentine is extremely quiet with only 150 residents. The 1920 adobe house was completely rebuilt in 2010 and is very comfortable with high quality furnishings, fully functional kitchen and a large bathroom.

The space
House is equipped fully with cooking and dining utensils, linens, firewood, heaters in each room during the winter, window air conditioning, city water and sewer, parking room for RV, and is five minutes from Prada Marfa and 35 miles from downtown Marfa. The house is safe for kids over three years of age. The 55" TV is an Internet TV and our internet in Valentine is fast enough to watch most on demand services such as Netflix and Amazon video. My Amazon video subscription is included in the rental. There's also a DVD player and many DVDs in the house as well as a large record collection and a good turntable. NPR affiliate Marfa Public Radio is the primary terrestrial news source. The outdoor fireplace come with provided firewood. Guests are welcome to BBQ in the two on site smokers. There are two outdoor seating areas connected to the house. The train is several blocks away from the house but the house, being adobe, blocks out nearly all of the noise from the train when it passes.

Where you’ll be

Valentine, Texas, United States

Very quiet residential area in Valentine proper. A block and a half away on the same street as the Big Bend Mercantile building, home of the Valentine's Day in Valentine celebration. Away from the highway on the N. side of the railroad tracks.

I have lived in Marfa since 2007. I'm a former City Council member and bar owner. I am the current Presidio County Justice of the Peace for Precinct One. I am also a radio DJ on Marfa Public Radio and cook BBQ, burgers and tacos on the weekends at Hombres Cafe. My favorite things are music, life in the Big Bend area, public policy and cooking. I love traveling, especially going to New Orleans, France, Mexico and California. I also have several Airstream trailers including one that I live in in Marfa, and I like to go to Terlingua for the chili cookoff in my 1966 Overlander. Enjoying good food, be it fine dining or tamales in a brown bag is a passion. I have experience in electrical work, construction and auto repairs and still enjoy working with my hands. In 2012 I left the world of traditional profit-focused business for good. From that point forward I have been involved in non-traditional businesses and public service.
