“Absolutely breathtaking and truly affordable for almost anyone. The view alone is worth so much more than this is listed at! A great adventure. I’ve always wanted to live in a tiny house, so this listing was right up my alley. If you plan on using the heater, bring two canisters of propane per day, plus extras for the camp stove. The heater would run on low for five hours or so on one propane tank. The only complaints I have are that I wish I had known that the wifi at the Little Burro store cost money. It is per month, and since we were only there for two days, it didn’t make sense to pay the fee which was reasonable for a month but unreasonable for the 10 minutes we needed it. Additionally, the dumpsters there at the store that the listing directs you to put your trash in had padlocks on them, but that was no biggie at all, we just kept it until we got to a gas station. Neither are big issues, obviously, in and of themselves, just putting those things in the listing description would be cool :) Overall, I would %10,000 come back here!”
A remote, off-grid adobe dome, powered by solar power, and near Big Bend National Park.
“Such a magical experience. The landscape of the area is breathtaking both during the day and at night. As for the property and the living space, it’s like being in a little adobe space ship. You have a bit of everything you need really. There are some eco-friendly tasks that you’ll need to mindful of such as conserving water, washing your dishes, using the outhouse as a restroom, taking a shower several miles down the road at Terlingua Ranch Lodge, or solar bag shower at the Dome itself, and packing out all of your trash the next day. A small price to pay imo for such a beautiful and comfortable stay in the desert. There is no air conditioning for the summer season, but while visiting on a sunny 100 degree day, it was very tolerable with the desert wind blowing rough the windows, but if air temperature is a deal breaker for you, I would recommend traveling in a cooler season and there is also a heater inside the dome for winter. So many special touches inside and outside of the Dome and the property, what a beautiful place. Can’t wait to go back.”
Tiny Terlingua is just minutes from the historic Terlingua Ghosttown, conveniently situated between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park. This solar powered house is tucked away privately on the corner of five acres with plenty of room for enjoying a campfire, viewing the night sky and watching an amazing sunrise. Come experience tiny house living powered by the sun.
“Tiny Terlingua is awesome!! The property is well thought out with shaded areas throughout the day. The landscaping makes you feel you have found an oasis in the unforgiving desert. The house cools down very fast, even during the hottest part of the day. The dirt road that you use to access the property is rough, however any vehicle can be used without any worry. Carmen has done a fantastic job of providing all the amenities in both main house and the bath house. Terlingua is about 15 minutes from Big Bend and the town offers everything you need for your trip. Carmen left a book with detailed instructions on how to make the most of the off grid/solar powered house. Follow those guidelines and you will have a wonderful, relaxing experience.”
