The space

We purchased Tumbleweed House in 2013 and have taken great care in the remodel. It has a fully equipped open kitchen with 6 burner gas stove, an extra long dining table, a stocked Nespresso machine, and a Tivoli radio set to KRTS, Marfa's very own and much beloved public radio station. The bathroom is all new with a new claw foot tub. There is a washer and dryer available to guests staying a week or more. The kitchen and bedroom open up to a spacious and private backyard that is perfect for relaxing or viewing the night sky.

The bedroom features a comfortable queen sized bed. There is a TV in the bedroom with access to Netflix and Hulu via the Apple TV. Sorry, no live TV. Tumbleweed house is suitable for one or two adults only, please no children or pets.

We live just a few blocks away and are often able to greet our guests in person. Tumbleweed House is located in a quiet neighborhood on the west side of town. Everything is close to everything here.

The Tumbleweed House was perfect for our weekend getaway to Marfa. The decor is minimalist, yet warm and inviting. It's right off of the main drag, so it's very easy to get around. Jean and Richard also sent us some great recommendations. We will absolutely be back!

Jean & Richard's lovely home was a fantastic place to experience Marfa. The home itself has everything you need – and nothing you don't. It's modern, spacious, and very comfortable. My husband and I stayed for a week. The wifi was strong enough for us to video chat & do other work remotely, and to stream over on the Apple TV. Jean and Richard were excellent hosts. Five stars! Before we arrived, they sent a really useful tipsheet with info on all Marfa's best restaurants, coffee, shops and art. They offered several thoughtful accommodations since we were staying for a week, and were always responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the stay. We look forward to our next stay at the Tumbleweed House!

The Tumbleweed House looks perfect in the pictures and sounds ideal in the description. But when you arrive it's 5 x better. 1) the way it's decorated is so calming and aesthetically inspiring. 2) the size just feels bigger, the kitchen is perfect for prepping a Texas inspired meal with lots of ingredients as there's lots and lots of counter space (at least for a New Yorker) 3) Jean and Richard are so attentive and available and cool 4) There's basically two places to sit outside and sip beverages, back and front. 5) and it's QUIET and PEACEFUL and SERENE and that night sky. WOW! Stars in your lap. We loved it and you will too!

Jean and Richard's place is a lovely, light, relaxing space with a very well equipped kitchen and a killer shower! It was really comfortable-we didnt need to use the a/c even in sunny weather. Nice breezy open feeling. They were thoughtful, friendly hosts and went the extra mile to prep the place for our arrival. Their recommendations were spot on and helped us discover some hidden gems. All in all a perfect home base for a relaxing Marfa escape. We hated to leave!

The tumbleweed house is a gem in Marfa. It reflects the minimalism style of Marfa art, but it is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The clawfoot tub and shower is wonderful. The kitchen has all the tools needed to cook meals and make coffee. There are great books about Marfa as well. My most favorite was the giant tumbleweed light over the dining room table. This house is close to all the local activities and super quiet at night. I highly recommend this house to a couples for a weekend getaway.

Jean And Richard User ProfileJean And Richard is a superhost.

I am a set decorator for movies and my husband is a dialog recordist. We travel for work for extended periods of time and prefer to stay in a nice apartment or house instead of a hotel. We love getting to know a place like a local would, hunting for great restaurants, coffee shops, movie theaters, or going to the farmers market.
