Overview
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Terlingua, Texas
The Blue House is made out of Papercrete (disaggregated telephone books, cement, sand and water), so it’s wonderfully quiet and holds temperature well. It has been decorated in remembrance of Monet, so it’s a rather blue house, and has birds everywhere, inside and out. This is a “sustainable” rental in that the lights are all solar powered, the water is rain catchment and, of course, the building is recycled telephone books. However, there is full electricity in every room so computers and cell phones can be charged.

Very nice place in Terlingua with kitchen, living room and bedroom, plus lovely outside patio spaces. Nice views, especially of the Chisos Range. Would have personally preferred a king size bed, so my wife and I split up and I slept on the futon couch. Well equipped kitchen, barbeque, although we did not cook. Right around the corner from Starlite. Loved Cafe Milagros for breakfast.
