A great spot to stay for the weekend. The folks who run it were very friendly and easy to work with and the location and casita were a perfect addition to our weekend.

The space is gorgeous. Garrick, who manages this rental was so kind and helpful with us. The people over at the Cochineal restaurant went above and beyond for us our entire stay as well. Do not be fooled by the proximity to the restaurant and the owners home, this casita feels private, quiet and cozy. Being on the main highway of the town, it allows you to walk to almost all of the most desirable locations in Marfa. We even walked all the way up to the Chinati Foundation, no need to drive.

We almost felt like we were at a hotel with the service from Cochineal. Anytime we needed anything they were more than happy to oblige. Although you won't need much as the casita provides for you all the necessities of home. The courtyard is your private entrance to the restaurant's patio dining. It's gated with privacy fence and is equipped with a cafe table and four chairs. The dining space offers a large, modern table, with plenty of seating, and two massive windows allowing natural light to fill the entire casita during the day. The kitchenette is fully stocked with everything you need to, drink, cook, plate and serve anything you desire, for a really fun night I recommend brining items to cook. They made sure that in the mini fridge we had a bottle of chilled champagne ready for us. The bedroom has a gorgeous skylight along the back of the ceiling. It offers a nice sized platform bed for two (which is delightfully comfy) and a flat screen tv if you are so inclined. If you need to wash any clothes, there is a small stacked washer and dryer tucked next to the entrance of the bedroom. The bathroom was stunning as well. The large standing tiled shower has a skylight and a rain shower head (with great water pressure and temperature range to boot). The flooring was bare concrete all around, but was clean to the touch and kept cool during the hot hours of the day. We didn't need to use the AC or heat the entire time we were there, but there is one and vents about if you need.

The interior design really portrays the artistic culture and architectural beauty that draws people to Marfa. You feel like you walked into a page in a magazine, the owners did a beautiful job with the space and I feel lucky to have been able to stay in it.

It made for a great romantic getaway for two. Did I mention they allowed our dogs? With a refundable pet deposit, make sure to bring your furry friends with you.
