About Jason

We are a married couple living in Austin, Texas, somewhat recently transplanted from NYC. I practice law in Austin and in NYC and my wife travels quite a bit for her work. Marfa is our favorite getaway and, with our busy schedules, we just do not make it out as often as we would like. We love our home in Marfa and all of our wonderful friends there. Whether you are returning visitors, or new to Marfa, we believe you will love it as much as we do.

Jason purchased this house in 2008

Why Jason chose Marfa

We purchased this home in Marfa because, after we moved from NYC to Austin, we craved a place to get away from the Austin heat. We chose Marfa because, while Marfa is a small town, the town's residents are a unique blend of big-city sophisticates, ranchers/cowboys, and long-time residents. Marfa has a creative and eclectic vibe that reminds us of a smaller, and more isolated, Taos. Whether you are interested in hiking in the mountains, or fine-dining and gallery-hopping, or all of the preceding, Marfa is simply a wonderful place to unwind. Go to marfalist dot org and find out what is happening in Marfa.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family trip to Marfa and really enjoyed this house. Our 2 year old loved playing (through the fence) with the goat and horse in the adjoining property. Beds were comfortable and House is close to everything. Only feedback is maybe consider putting a couch or comfortable chairs in main entry room as it’s more a natural “hang out” area of the house.

Was everything described, plus more

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Close to everything downtown. Lots of space and had a nice separation of rooms so we all could find out quiet places when needed! The caretaker next door let our kids ride the horse and was incredibly nice and accommodating. We forgot our 'elf on a shelf' at the house when we left and the owner and caretaker were kind enough to send it to us and wouldn't let us pay for the postage. Above and beyond what I would have expected. A good time was had by all, the house was great and the owner/caretakers were awesome!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in town for a running race nearby. We had a great time and would highly recommend staying!

The house was roomy, and we cooked many dinners in the large kitchen. The yard had plenty of room for activities and beautiful sunset views.

Spacious, well-appointed house for Marfa lovers

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific stay and the house was great for two couples with very separate bedrooms and baths. Walking distance to all the key Marfa locations and a horse and goat nextdoor!
