Perfect for a personal retreat or a get away with friends and family. This property is enclosed by an 8 foot adobe wall creating a private, secluded compound.

The kitchen has state of the art appliances including all of the dishes and utensils you need. It also has a new washer/dryer, large 15 foot in home theater dvd projector system for movie nights and a portable Bose ipod dock. It has a large antique dining table for intimate dinner parties. It’s family friendly (not childproofed), pets are allowed with deposit. All premium towels and linens are provided as well as down comforters. Store your items in the walk in closet. It sleeps 4-6 (can include queen size blow up mattress for additional people and couch bed sleeps one). It’s conveniently located in town on the main thoroughfare. A perfect landing for film or photography crews as well. Come have an incredible experience in Marfa where sweet dreams await you.

Great modern space!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three days in Marfa at this bright, modern, airy house, easy to find, and the owner made it super simple to get in once we arrived. We came to see the Perseids meteor shower and the backyard was a great vantage point the first night. Unfortunately we got rain after that, but the screened porch was the perfect place to watch the storms come and go, eat meals, or just gaze at the lovely xeriscaped backyard. Clean, thoughtfully appointed, fun artwork perfectly scaled to the space, nice crisp linens, three options for sleeping - soft, medium, and firm. The ladder to the loft took a *little* getting used to---could be an issue for older travelers or anyone with an injury or other limitation. Rain showerhead wasn't the strongest water pressure, and does splash a bit so be aware of that before you step in.

It's 25 mins to the Prada store, well situated for excursions to Ft. Davis, the McDonald Observatory, and Balmorhea. Right next door to a pho restaurant (Marpho, get it?), a two minute walk from a Mexican food restaurant. Close to El Cheapo liquor but their inventory is NOT cheapo, so I'd recommend bring your own if you want wine, beer or cocktails.

Other things to note - if you're sharing space with people you don't know well, there's not a ton of privacy, but for two people or a family of four, was just right, especially as what you give up in having a bunch of rooms with doors, you gain back with the light and high ceilings, clerestory windows letting in plenty of sun. It is on Marfa's main street, so there's night traffic with 18-wheelers, and you can hear the train, but that is pretty much the case from Marathon to Valentine and beyond. Thanks so much; we hope to be back!

Fabulous Marfa Experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything we were looking for in a rental -- the back yard was perfect for star gazing, and the serene, stylish interiors we're perfect for kicking back and relaxing.

Second stay, Still great

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at La Mistica and it was great. The space is open, light and very comfortable. We stayed both times with our 18 year old son who loves the loft. The owner/manager is easy to deal with and very nice.

As mentioned in a previous review, the bathtub/shower is a bit kluge, but did not deter us from coming back, and we plan to do so again.

Stunning base for a lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our stay. We are four friends, all interested in art, and were looking for a nice place to celebrate a birthday. The place was immaculate and well designed. The layout of the house really encourages socialization. We were comfortable enjoying conversations on the patio, cooking dinner together, and lounging about. The location was great as well. Other reviews have mentioned trouble with the shower; once you figure it out, it really is not a problem at all. (And the problem is just that the water pressure is too high, which is better than the alternative.) Couldn't recommend this place more.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Mistica for New Year's and had wonderful time. It's a beautiful home, especially for those that enjoy a clean, minimalist environment. The space is large, especially with the very secure garden. We had our dog with us and we were very comfortable letting him explore and enjoy himself. The house was stocked with everything we needed and the owner was attentive throughout the process. We would definitely stay here again (and we look forward to it). The house is as described, but note that there is one queen sized bed on the main floor. There is another bed on the loft, which is accessible by a ladder. The wireless internet connection worked great, but there is no cable or satellite TV. There is a projection system for showing DVD's. We enjoyed watching Casablanca on the giant. white wall!

really great property, we would stay again

  • 4 of 5

super cool, very marfa. well appointed with a fireplace and beautiful spaces. the loft space is for grown ups only in that there is no railing. so definitely not for young children. my only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 is that the shower is not practical and sprays outside the tub/shower space. so a bath or spritz bath is a must.

otherwise it is a 5 star property and we would definitely stay again. the manager is great and easy to work with. the kitchen is good and with good appliances.
