The casita is 202 square feet but we have utilized the space well and it is more than adequate for the average persons. There is walk-around room on both sides of the bed. The bed is a new 10" Serta mattress. The lavatory counter has room for your toiletries. The chaise lounge will adjust to the position most comfortable for reclining or lounging. The shower fixture has a hand-held personal spray as well as the wall mount. There are solar lights in & around the patio. The mini-fridge is large enough to hold your cold & frozen items. The satellite tv has local news from Midland/Odessa + top 200. The outdoor seating/dining is comfortable and has a gas fire pit. It is great for morning coffee and star gazing at night.You will be very comfortable in this space.

We are friendly Texans and want your stay to be pleasant and give you what help you desire with directions, etc. We are generally at our house or down our hill during the hours of 8-5. Some evenings we go out to dinner, but could be reached by cell if necessary. We will plan to meet you when you arrive or you can self check-in due to our key pad lock. We can offer assistance with any questions you have. We do not want you to feel we are encroaching on your privacy.
Should you be here at a time with heavy rain, you will need to use caution on unpaved roads, S County is one. The desert is a very beautiful place, but many things sting, bite or stick. Please watch where you are walking. After dark always have a flashlight. It is very dark, with no street lights, so be wary of rocks, plants with stickers, insects and desert creatures. The nearest hospital is 80 miles away, as is a pharmacy. We have very dedicated EMS responders in the area. Cell service is not always available. Walmart is 160 miles from Terlingua, so try to bring what you will need.

My husband, Jimmy & I have been together 36 years. He started coming to the Big Bend in 1976, and brought me at Christmas 1980.
I became a competition chili cook in 1990, so Terlingua really became important to us both. It is the home of the International Chili Championship. We have attended that for the last 27 years.
Jimmy has been in construction most all the time we have been a couple. I joined him in our business in 1998 (previously I spent 32 years in dentistry)
We have built 21 homes together, including our Casita you will love.
I love to cook & entertain. I love to read and visit my friends and we love to travel in our rv.
