CASA VIDA - LYLE LOVETT WROTE 3 SONGS HERE!

Alpine House Rental Photos and Description

House with Extensive Grounds, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sle

We were honored to learn that Lyle Lovett had been a guest at Casa Vida this fall and had written three songs during his stay. He expressed his thanks in the guest book entry shown in the pictures below. A magnifying glass may be helpful : ) You will be inspired, too, by your stay at Casa Vida ('Life House'), whose name signifies it's contribution to the lives of our guests. We hope that your visit to Casa Vida will also be a treasured experience, to be shared with friends and family and repeated as often as possible.Casa Vida offers the comforts of home, while immersing our guests in the natural and historical perspectives of the Big Bend region. The house itself, a renovated adobe featured in Alpine's historic home tour, is fully furnished and decorated with authentic pieces native to the rugged, yet refined confluence of Mexican, Texan, and Western cultures that makes the legendary Big Bend Country unique in so many ways.Information below details the myriad amenities of Casa Vida.

Two separate and private living areas, joined by access to the remarkable and fully supplied kitchen, offer ideal accommodations for two couples or a couple and an additional family unit. Bring the friends or grandparents and stay in complete comfort and harmony!

The spacious grounds of Casa Vida offer privacy and ambiance that enhance enjoyment of the views of surrounding mountains and superb Alpine climate at 4500 feet elevation. Abundant sensory delights are guaranteed. Little known fact: Alpine's average high temperature for July and August is 89 degrees and its average night-time temperature for the same months is 65 degrees! (heaters and blankets provided year-round!)

Our guests at Casa Vida face an ongoing dilemma: whether to relax at the seductively peaceful and therapeutic house and grounds, experience the surrounding historic district with its distinctive architecture, shops, art galleries, restaurants, and entertainment (you've got to check out Big Bend's only honky tonk, Railroad Blues!)-all in walking distance, or set out on an easy day trip to explore the natural and cultural wonders that lie to the north, south, east, and west.

A quick look at a map and internet info will show you that Alpine is the best home-base from which to see the majestic and multi-faceted Big Bend Country. Let us share Casa Vida-a home that will become a part of your life!

We LOVE Casa Vida!!

As an escape from the cold and snow of Michigan, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Vida for the entire month of February. We found it to be the perfect house in the perfect town. We wanted to find a town where we would feel safe and a home that offered sidewalks outside the front door as we are avid walkers. The fact that Alpine is centrally located in Big Bend Country and that Casa Vida is an exceptional home was a much-appreciated bonus!
There are so many details about the home that I love.....the southwestern decor, the library of materials about the area, the privacy of the lovely yard and patio, the well-stocked kitchen, the cleanliness, and the ideal location....to name a few. Seriously, there aren't superlatives enough to describe the time we spent at Casa Vida.
Additionally, Connie was very accomodating and easy to work with. She checked in via email on occasion during the month to see how we were doing. If you are looking for the best place to stay in Alpine, Casa Vida is it!!

We had a 4 night vacation at West Texas, and very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Vida. The location was good; central and easy to find. The house had plenty of space to relax both indoors and outdoors. The patio was great for chilling with a glass of wine as well as enjoying breakfast outdoors, and watching hummingbirds feed on flowers. The interior of the house was decorated nicely, and the yard had interesting landscaping to make it enjoyable to hang out. The bed was super comfortable to sleep on. We cooked several meals in the kitchen, which was equipped well. The owner was very responsive and helpful, very good communication regarding the reservation and any questions we had. After we returned home, they contacted us that they had found eyeglasses from the house, before we even realized we had left something behind. They returned them to us fast and packed safely. We are very impressed both with the vacation house and the owner's high attention to detail in any aspect of service. Highly recommend staying at Casa Vida!

This was my fourth trip out to Big Bend and while I had driven through Alpine, I had never stayed and got to really see this gem of a town. At night there was live music on the main drag, during the day there were cute shops and restaurants to explore.....but I must say that the night I sat at the public park in the middle of the memorial rose garden which is next to a beautiful Catholic church was just amazing. The sun was setting when we arrived and there was a funeral letting out at the church. As the sun disappeared behind the mountains the roses let off the most beautiful perfume. I just sat there looking down over this small college town thinking how beautiful and eclectic it is.

Casa Vida is a charming house. You can see how the owners have put much thought into restoring it. I love the layout, the courtyards, the porch....even the Christmas lights. Houses have a feel about them and this one radiates peace and tranquility.

Practically speaking, the beds were very comfortable. There is a soaker tub in one bathroom and the most beautiful tiled shower in the other. The sunrise stained glass window in the master bedroom is wonderful to wake up to.

Loved it there. I will go again.

We had an amazing time in this perfect Alpine home. It had everything we needed and was such a comfortable home to come back to after being at the Cowboy Poet Gathering all day. We will definitely be back!

West Texas Charm

My husband and I stayed at Casa Vida in April of 2012 and really enjoyed our stay there. The West Texas/Mexican style of the adobe home was so charming with its Talavera decor. We have stayed in bed and breakfasts all over the country and found this one to be exceptional with so many amenities, such as three tv's, Bose radios, Western CD's, and magazines and books about the area. It is a picturesque setting with climbing roses blooming in the yard and a patio for sitting outside.The house was very clean and well maintained, and even had a washer and dryer for longer stays.

We enjoyed having breakfast at the bakery/coffee shop on the main street and really enjoyed dinner on two evenings at the Reata Restaurant. The Reata has great West Texas decor and really good food as well. When we are in Alpine we always walk in the park which has good birding. The museum at Sull Ross University is excellent with information on the history of the area, in particular the many petroglyphs found in the Big Bend area. We would also recommend going to a "Star Party" at the McDonald Observatory which we did a couple of years ago, and the birding nearby at the Indian Lodge State Park is excellent.

This was our 13th trip to West Texas in the past 12 years so you can tell that we really enjoy it there, and we plan on another stay at Casa Vida. We would definitey recommend Casa Vida to friends.
