Very beautiful & comfortable, with an 'only-in-Marfa' vibe. Great stargazing, hammock-filled outdoor space.

The house is very bright and spacious. The beds are very comfortable and clean and the backyard is great for chilling. The kitchen was extremely well stocked for cooking. Wifi is strong, and the location is great for walking to all Marfa in-town attractions. It's different from other air bnb's I've stayed at in Marfa- it's not at all the trendy modern minimalism design you see elsewhere but rather classic, eclectic and older. We really enjoyed our stay.

A very comfortable and convenient place to stay in Marfa, particularly if you are there long enough to want to spread out.

Fabulous location. If a couple of bikes were added you could almost see it all, do it all. The house is very nice and crisp--captures a different era. Needs a few changes--new mattresses, a reading light or two, and a few bathroom amenities for women. Nonetheless, a happy and safe home base--particularly the classic front porch and its swing.

If you are planning a trip to the wonderful town of Marfa, TX, make sure you book a stay at David's place. Great location, within walking distance to the downtown. Wonderfully appointed and the hammocks in the back are a great touch.
