Villa Terlingua, Style in a Dusty Ghost Town

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 11
Terlingua, Texas
This is a lovingly refurbished 100 year old limestone rock ruin with beds and bedrooms surrounding a huge kitchen. There are several fireplaces, inside and out, and the house is decorated with objects I have brought back from around the world. The outdoor porch is huge with views of Big Bend National Park and beyond. There is also a smaller guesthouse with its own private courtyard, outdoor shower, pavilion, vegetable garden and private bath. The house is located within the Terlingua Ghost Town Historic area but is on the North side of the hill where it's peaceful and quiet. A 6 minute walk through the old ruins will get you to a coffeehouse and the famed Starlight Theatre in the Ghost Town.

To be fair, the place itself is nice for Terlinqua, though very expensive. Cynta is the owner and is very hateful. She greets you with warnings about how you cannot be noisy because she doesn't want to disturb her neighbors. This house supposedly sleeps 11 people and has outdoor spaces to sleep, sit and eat. There are multiple other smaller...

Management response:

Wow. Shelley stayed here a year ago. I thought she moved on. I still have the photos of the two ripped quilts her dogs left me here as a present. Having a pet-friendly hotel is one thing, coming with friendly pets is another. My assistants and I asked her to remove her dogs on the second day as we were...

My wife booked this weekend getaway for my upcoming 45th birthday. We made the drive from Austin, TX (about 7 1/2 hours) fairly easily, and the views along the way are nothing short of spectacular. We arrived about 4pm on Friday afternoon and were greeted by our hostess, Cynta. She welcomed us, and gave us a quick tour of the...

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure having you. Cynta
