Overview

Marfa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A newly built contemporary one bedroom one bath house with private courtyard

The Casita at Cochineal is all about comfort & convenience. A place where you can dress it up or dress it down as your mood dictates. Upon arrival enjoy our gift of a bottle of cold Champagne and let the relaxing begin! You can choose to cook in, dine out or have dinner catered by Cochineal (Marfa & the regions best restaurant) to your own private casita and courtyard for parties of up to 6 persons. Big Bend light invades the space via multiple skylights & picture windows bring in the big sky & endless outdoors. Decorated with modern furniture, bathroom, kitchen, photography and artwork, we have kept the décor purposefully minimal, clean & crisp - like Marfa itself. We look forward to helping you arrange most any adventure you wish! Gliders, Bikes, Mountains and the Rio Grande beckon !

Wonderful place to stay while exploring the Big Bend area. Conveniently located in walking distance of Marfa's restaurants and attractions and driving distance for hiking in the Fort Davis mountains and Big Bend National Park. Experienced some difficulty with wifi but staff very helpful and prompt in solving the problem. Having previously stayed in about five or six other lodgings in the region, this is definitely the one we will return to.

Lovely La Casita

  • 5 of 5

Cool. Serene. Artful. The perfect place to come home to after a day of exploring Marfa. Close to everything, but private, including a great, little patio for two. Concrete floors and white walls. Sophisticated, comfortable, romantic. And for those who like a nice bathroom, La Casita comes through! Have fun!!

Good Place

  • 4 of 5

wife and i recently stayed. overall pretty good place to stay. location puts you at probably the best restaurant in town as they are joined together. there is a private courtyard despite its close proximity to restaurant, the fence is high enough to give privacy. the place is clean, and decor ok. they provide higher end soap and shampoo.

the property manager, guy name garrick is a cool guy, and attentive to your needs.

negatives would be very weak internet connection, and there are problems with their door keys. also there is a tv in room and you will watch nothing. there are movies, and games in the place but it was not labeled properly so i only discovered at end of stay. also the media cabinet where TV sits will fall over, probably should be mounted to wall.

overall good stay. i think a bit overpriced compared to another place i stayed in Marfa but would recommend it. I think that since the place is owned by the owner of cochineal, and attached to it, it would be a nice touch to automatically be able to get a reservation at restaurant.

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.
