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.

Great stay in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Marfa and we are so glad that we stayed at this house. With 4 adults and a kid we wanted to make sure we had space to accommodate all of us comfortably. This home had beds for all, lots of fresh towels, toiletries, and a beautiful backyard to play in. It was close to everything we needed to go to. There were lots of amenities in the house we didn't even know we'd appreciate like magazines of things to do in Marfa, board games, DVD player, toiletries, patio furniture, and fire pit. I highly recommend staying here if you are ever visiting Marfa with a group.

All the comforts

  • 5 of 5

Super peaceful retreat on the edge of town....well stocked with plenty of kitchen essentials, towels, etc. .....great back patio with grill, plenty of seating and a fire pit. Marfa has plenty to offer, but we mostly hung out at the house because we were so comfortable. Loved it!

Owner's Response: Kelli, so glad to hear you had a nice time. We've spent a lot of time making sure the house is a comfortable home base for visits to the area, and not just a "sterile" rental. I'm glad you noticed! Come back soon.

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!
