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 15 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.

Marvelous Marfa!

  • 5 of 5

Robert's home is absolutely perfect for the perfect get-a-way in Marfa. It was clean and had all the modern conveniences you could ask for. The location couldn't be better too! It's in town close to restaurants, galleries and all the this amazing town has to offer.

Robert was immediately responsive to any questions we had and was a super friendly and always helpful.

Thanks so much to Robert for a wonderful time!

Perfect Home for a Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time exploring Marfa and the surrounding areas and this house was a perfect place for our 2015 Thanksgiving. We had three generations occupying the house and we had plenty of space to cook, eat, play games, watch TV and relax. The house is clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. In addition, the kitchen is fully equipped. I would recommend this home to friends and family and would definitely stay here again.

Nice comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Marfa and this home was part of the reason. We were there for my brother's wedding, and this house fitted our entire family. It was close to all the sites, the linens and towels were plenty and comfy, and the fact that there is a code to get in made it easy for all of us to do our own thing and not have to deal with keys.

I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent house!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Marfa at this great house. It was clean, well appointed, and the owner was very friendly and helpful. It was great to have an accommodating owner and a giant backyard for the dog. I highly recommend this property!

Lovely, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Marfa Guest House was just perfect. The decor is modern and comfortable and really has that Marfa vibe. Everything we needed was thoughtfully provided, and the quality of the towels, linens, bath products, etc. was excellent. We were able to walk to most of Marfa's best attractions around the court house, and there's a nice little neighborhood park about a block away. There were 4 of us (two couples), and we had plenty of room to spread out. This house is ideal for 4 (or more) people--and it will make your trip to Marfa even better.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Marfa608 Guest House was the perfect vacation home for girls weekend. The four of us each had our own private room and plenty of bathroom space. Clean, comfortable and within walking distance from the center of town.
