Space 2,400 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Comfortable Adobe House. Sleeps 6-8 Easily. Quiet Town Location

When we told locals (Marfans) we bought a house they naturally would ask where it was located, after telling them, they would say, “Oh the Coach's house". One of Marfa's high school long term coaches lived in the house with his wife and children. Locals remember how kind their family was to everyone and how their house was always open for their children's friends that could come and go as they pleased. Many happy memories are present and being made in the house. It is a 3 bedroom / 2 full bath with all the comforts of home. The master bedroom with full bath is in front of the house away from the other bedrooms. We have two large living areas, high speed internet, dining and breakfast rooms, kitchen, and Hot Water on Demand! Our house is located across from the Marfa schools; be sure to check if the high school teams have a home game! The courthouse square is less than a half mile away, a nice easy walk. We will consider pets, please let us know with your request and we will discuss it with you. Graffiti artist Jules Muck from Venice Beach, CA painted an amazing mural at our house. She has displayed in museums and public spaces all over the world. You will love it. Be sure and take photos.

About Paula

We are excited to share our lovely home and the beautiful town of Marfa with you. We have a great love of the area and all the special times we have shared in Big Bend (State and National Park). Marfa is a highlight to any trip to West Texas.

Paula purchased this house in 2013

Why Paula chose Marfa

We have been travelling to the Big Bend area for more than a decade. After camping, we always ended up in Marfa. It was always another highlight of the trip. We usually got to hear great local music, there were always great restaurants, walking through town was fun, then there's the artisans, the Marfa Lights, hiking, and Art! Art! Art! There is so much to do in Marfa just by being a little adventurous. Our house is the perfect family house for 4 to 8 people. You can spread out in our 2400 square feet. We have 2 baths, a true luxury in Marfa. You will love sitting on the front porch and enjoying the true sounds of the town.

What makes this house unique

Two bathrooms!

Plenty of sleeping and living areas

Old adobe home with non-adobe add-ons

Quiet historic street

Thoughtful touches

Washer and dryer

On Demand Hot Water

Guestbook comments from the owner

P.S. We really enjoyed your record collection too!

Had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Quirky home with good location and lots of room. I appreciated the instructions on using the vintage 50's stove. Paula had lots of information on restaurants and things to do in and around Marfa. Thank you for urging us to go to the Star Party at the McDonald Observatory. It was amazing. Would definitely stay here again. It was a great Thanksgiving week. Kathryn

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

Coach's House was perfect for our stay. It is very roomy and the location couldn't be better. Within walking distance to the court house, Hotel Paisano, etc. Great communication with the owners and really appreciated all of the Marfa information that Paula provided. Highly recommend Coach's House for your stay.

Our stay exceeded my expectations. There was plenty of space and the house was vintage. The welcome package was very helpful as well. We will certainly be making a return visit in the future.

Located near town center, across from the Marfa Elementary School, our home is a peaceful place to start all your Marfa explorations. It is a nice walk to the courthouse/downtown area. Our house was built in the 1930's from adobe. Over the years, it was added onto so it is a large home perfect for more than one couple or a family. If you are in town during the week, catch a Marfa Shorthorn basketball game. Sit on our patio and star gaze. We are one block from the Lannan Foundation Park with its 'log' furniture. Just walk down Gonzales street to endless hiking trails through the ranch lands surrounding Marfa. Drive to Chinati, and El Cosmico.
