HOUSE: Kerrville + San Miguel + Marfa = Casa Carmen

This historic Spanish Bungalow features a freshly reappointed interior and exterior. Fully restored, the home was originally built in the 1920s, and boasts authentic charm with traditional white stucco exterior, clay tile roof, cantera stone and wood floors, plaster walls, french doors and windows, and custom lighting (almost all on dimmers).

Mexican talavera tile direct from San Miguel de Allende adorn the entire exterior from the terra-cotta walkway to the front door entry. Curb appeal is through the roof with a professional landscape design complete with lighting (on timers). The house is wrapped in patios, from the side courtyard to the lush backyard. There are mature shade trees, nine redbuds that bloom with vibrant color in spring, and a miniature agave garden in back. There is an abundance of outdoor furniture for dining al fresco and lounging. The side courtyard is floored in cantera stone and offers a cozy spot to observe passers by and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. There is a gas grill available for guests.

The owners have furnished the home with pieces from their own collection of antiques and vintage finds from several parts of the hill country and boasts original art. A cool-mix of mid-century classic, Spanish Art Deco with the texture of artisans from Mexico… you won't find anything quite like it. The main living and dining areas are large enough to host gatherings with it's open-concept design and access to the side courtyard. You'll find a comfy sectional to sink into or a swanky glass and brass dining table to enjoy a meal. The well-appointed kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, freezer (w/ ice maker), stove and other various small appliances, not to mention a separate coffee bar.

The master bedroom (king-sized bed) is oversized with plenty of room for extra furniture pieces, sitting area, and office/study area. Equipped with flat-screen hi-def television with access to a cable, HBO and Showtime. It's all in the details with high-quality linens, bedding, wooden hangers, provided paper and handmade pencils. The adjoining full bathroom is very unique featuring a custom Mexican Art Deco design mixing glass block, cantera stone and travertine materials. A true walk-in shower that will fit two. A Stackable washer/dryer unit is hidden behind louvered doors for your convenience. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, plush white towels, hair dryer, iron, ironing board - it's all there for your benefit.

The second bedroom/den features a 42" flat-screen hi-def television with access to a dvd player, cable, HBO and Showtime. There is a glass shelved bar with everything you'll need to mix your favorite beverage. This space can be enjoyed as a second living area or easily closed off and converted into the second bedroom with the use of the sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress (this room also has it's own closet as well), guests can have their own bathroom and make use of the cream and blue talavera tiled full bathroom with walk-in shower and hand-pressed tin light fixture.

The house is equipped with a wireless internet cable modem for convenient access.

Please note: Please inquire with the owner if you would like to bring your pet. Upon approval, a non-refundable additional pet fee of $50 per pet applies.

4/10 Fair

Our couple’s getaway and relaxation trip away from the hustle and bustle of regular every day was to take place 3-5th July at this property. Today is the 11th of July, and neither the owners nor VRBO have attempted to find a responsible solution to this issue; nor have they at the least refunded the deposit and cleaning fee for a stay that never happened. The nice photo’s you see of the front of the home, are just that a facade, just the front. The property Is located in a regular neighborhood and not in a getaway location. Even though the house was in order and apparently clean, the house smells of mold and dust. Attempts to call the owners were and have been unsuccessful. During our initial call they hung up and afterwards didn't answer any other calls. One of the owners told my wife and I over a single text they could do nothing or couldn’t help; to call the reservation company (VRBO) and deal with them. When we called VRBO, to convey our concerns, the owners would not respond to calls or emails from their own reservation company, at that point VRBO escalated the issue to the next higher level and we where told to wait for a call (from the escalation department (up to 48 hours) , mind you we had to find other accommodations at a higher premium and unlike the intended purpose of our trip, since this was the 4th of July weekend and last minute. End state for future travelers...be aware, things often are not what you are lead to believe.

We loved the house, wish they would let people know that master bredroom roof leaks really bad in desk area and that you need bug spray to go outside.
