About Robert Spiegel

I bought this home in 2004. I've owned a few vacation rentals, and I travel a lot so I understand what is important when you are away from home! My home base is Houston, Tx where I have lived for 17+ years. Prior to that I lived in Boston.

Why Robert Spiegel chose Big Bend

I fell in love with Marfa on my first visit. This home is just the perfect getaway and I've enjoyed owning it. I've also met some of the coolest people who've been guests at the home.

What makes this house unique

This home is in a really great location in a quiet neighborhood. It is convenient to the center of town and all of the attractions in Marfa. There is ample parking, plenty of space, and this is not just some 'mediocre' vacation rental. It is a home that has been designer furnished and is so amazingly comfortable for your stay. Everyone who visits loves this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I’ve been meaning to tell you that we had an amazing time in Marfa. The house was PERFECT!!! We absolutely want to go back and will be hoping to stay at 608. Thank you so much for having such a great house there. Hope all is well with you.

Highly Recommend the Marfa Guest House

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Marfa guest house with a group of 7 and we had a fantastic time. The house was plenty large to fit our group, was filled with nice amenities and was extremely comfortable. Only great things to say. If you are heading to Marfa, I highly recommend you stay at the Guest House.

The house was clean and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The property was spacious. Nice fenced in back yard with plenty of seating. Kitchen had everything we needed. The only problem we had was low water pressure in one of the bathrooms. Other than that, the place was perfect the location was very nice. We had a perfect view of the sunset. A great place to stay and I would certainly recommend it to anyone going to Marfa. We will stay there again in the future when we return.

Owner's Response: Leslie, I'm glad you enjoyed the house. Thanks for letting me know about the low water pressure. The water in Marfa is very hard so sometimes we need to soak the fixtures in vinegar to get water flowing again. Come back soon.

Excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely maintained and comfortable property. 4 adults stayed in this house on our trip. We came in from Austin, and the in-laws came in from Arizona. Marfa was our meeting up point. We had our choice of 4 very comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked. There are 3 sitting areas in the back yard - one area is shaded. The others are great for star gazing at night. There's even a nice fire pit and a bar-b-que pit (which we didn't use, but nice to have just in case). We only stayed for a couple of days but wish it could've been longer. Very quiet street. Great overall. Thanks!

Rest and relaxation supreme

  • 5 of 5

oh my goodness-- chic and comfortable, most definitely!! And I have already recommended it 3 times within a week of our return. This home is well appointed, has wi-fi, nice kitchen, a grill, fenced in yard, two bathrooms, washer & dryer, outside seating, and comfortable furniture. That's the physical amenities. Here's the experiential amenities: the stress-reducing ability of my husband to keep up with his office b/c of available wi-fi while spending time disconnecting in the afternoons, comfort of my two pups accompanying us and tossing the tennis ball outside, the joy of sleeping in or napping on comfortable furniture, grilling fabulous steak dinners with a glass of wine under a multitude of stars not seen in the city, the contentment of sitting outside on the patio enjoying the cool night as my beloved identified the constellations and pups rested (or slept) at our feet, walking around the quiet neighborhood and greeting local neighbors, the surprise of a turkey walking up the driveway (!), exploring the local courthouse and climbing to the very top, eating one of the biggest pizzas I've ever seen, strolling thru an art exhibit, running over to Marathon, and even looking for the mysterious lights of Marfa. :) Truly a wonderful relaxing break. Thank you for the ease of booking and sharing your lovely spot.

Owner's Response: Maggie, this home and Marfa are tops for relaxation! I am glad you had a great time. The patio is definitely one of our favorite spots. Since there is little light pollution in our neighborhood, the view of the stars is amazing! I'm glad your pups were comfortable. We love dog guests.

Stylish and comfortable Marfa stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed for 2 nights recently, and we very much enjoyed our time in Marfa|608. The place is spacious and stylish; 2 of our 6 are architects and appreciated the design elements and magazines. Access was easy, the beds were comfortable, and we even played their Trivial Pursuit on a rainy evening. Check-out was a breeze as well. We'd love to stay there again!
