I purchased this rental because it was contiguous with property I already owned. I had lived in Marathon for 6 years and knew this would be a worthwhile invest for me and an opporunity for travelers to enjoy a very unique experience in West Texas

CASA LA VISTA

  • 5 of 5
Casa La Vista is a true beauty. The house is just as it looks in the photos and you are provided with everything that you need. The house is clean and well-maintained and you will leave wishing that you didn't have to. The sunrise and sunsets are magnificent and the night skies are breathtaking. I highly recommend spending an entire week there if not more. My family was there for a week over New Years, second year in a row, and hope to continue the tradition.

GREAT TIME !!

  • 5 of 5
My nephew and I stayed here and had a great time. Very comfortable lodging, home away from home. The scenery is beautiful and the view of the stars at night is breathtaking. Accomadations were excellent with full kitchen, very comfortable beds and furniture. Easy reservations and the property is very well maintained. I highly recommend this wonderful house for your vacation lodging.!!!!

THE BEST PROPERTY IN MARATHON!

  • 5 of 5
We all just loved the place, and missed out on music Friday night in town because we didn't want to leave. Even more amazing, we left the Post early Saturday night, just to get back to this lovely house! We weren't there during the hot part of the day, so didn't use the swamp cooler, but the evenings were very comfortable.

BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH SPECTACULAR VIEW

  • 4 of 5
This is a charming home with amazing views of the mountains -- must-see sunsets! We loved our stay at Casa La Vista; although we were (also) surprised that there was no A/C. We were in the area during record-breaking heat, and we found the house to be very warm during the afternoons. Heating the oven to cook was also out of the question beause of the temperature in the house. If it's important to you - - the wi-fi as advertised, is a single bar borrowed from the hotel down the road. Connectivity is intermittent at best. Perhaps this is a good excuse to put away the electronics and enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. We would definitely return to this lovely home, but would plan a trip during the cooler months.

Owner's Response: I have now added a swamp cooler to Casa La Vista and have renters over the 4th of July. I will ask them to post a review and let us all know if it cooled things off. It has been unusually hot this summer in Marathon, however July and August are typically the coolest months in the summer as that is our rainy season, with afternoon thunderstorms. Quite a treat!

REALLY NICE, BUT SURPRISED BY LACK OF AIR CONDITIONING

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely home, beautifully decorated, clean and well-maintained. And because it was built so recently, it never occurred to me to check if it had air conditioning. With temps hovering in the low 100's during our stay, even the thick walls, ceiling fans and window shades just couldn't keep the temp in the house from becoming uncomfortable. Fortunately, nights were cool, so by about 8:30pm, it was quite pleasant and sleeping was great. We enjoyed the area and toured Big Bend, Terlingua, and several other spots. The drought is obvious, but the scenery is still amazing. We would stay again, but maybe when it is cooler and we could enjoy the cozy wood-burning fireplace!

BEAUTIFUL AND SERENE

  • 5 of 5
From this charming and comfortable house, we watched deer, quail, and roadrunners through our large picture window and witnessed beautiful sunsets while sitting on the back porch. We felt so relaxed we didn't want to leave. The peace, quiet and serenity of this part of Texas is unmatched. Casa La Vista is the best place within the Big Bend area to enjoy this unique beauty. We'll be back.
