The Juniper Moon House is a one bedroom, one bath adobe casita, nestled amidst Juniper trees and prickly pear cacti. Located on the southwest end of town, it offers quieter surroundings while still being in close proximity to Marfa favorites. Featured in Conde Naste as "The Best Airbnbs for Stargazing" and on the Zoe Report as "The 10 Best Desert Rentals For Those Looking To Get Away From It All ASAP". *All surfaces are always cleaned with disinfectant between guests.

The space
Instagram: @thejunipermoonhouse #thejunipermoonhouse

The casita was built in 1950 and is surrounded on the front and sides with enormous Juniper trees making the home feel like a shady oasis.

The minimalist décor offers guests a respite from the cluttered bustle of city life. The house is dotted with pottery, art, furniture and textiles from local Marfa artisans. Amenities like our pourover coffee maker and record player encourage relaxation and a slower pace of life. Our fully equipped kitchen offers the option to cook your own meals on site, or just use the oven to heat up your leftover Pizza Foundation slices.

The bedroom has one queen sized bed, outfitted with Parachute bedding and extra soft sateen sheets. The twin sized daybed in the living room doubles as a couch for lounging during the day and sleeping at night. There are extra sheets and pillows located in the bathroom closet. Because we encourage as unplugged of a time as possible, we do not have a television on site. But games and books can be found in the bedroom armoire for old fashioned fun and connection.

The bathroom includes a bathtub and shower, and a super fun pink floor. Cozy up in our signature El Cosmico robes, that will make you never want your vacation to end.

Sip coffee or a glass of wine on the front or back screened in porch, both feature a set of chairs for lounging or stargazing. Venture deeper into the fully fenced backyard to roast marshmallows and hot dogs over our fire pit. Tree stump seats circle the pit making it a fun spot to gather with friends and family.

For comfortable heating and cooling use the remotes to control the mini splits in bedroom and living room. For the few extra cold days we have in the winter in Marfa, there is a space heater to supplement the heat.

Guest access
You have free reign of the house, front yard, back yard and fire pit! Please be responsible and safe when using the fire pit. Fire pit burns are not a joke.

Other things to note
Marfa is one of our favorite places, and is always a respite from the rest of the world even in the best of times. We will be keeping our doors open so that you may enjoy some peace in this quiet oasis. In light of the pandemic, we’re taking additional precautions to endure the safety of our guests, and prevent the spread of germs.

We have updated our cleaning supplies to an even stronger solution which will be even more effective in killing viruses. We will be taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces (handles, doorknobs, etc). And will be making cleaning products available so that you may use them during your stay as well.

Because people are asking, here is what's open as of 3.15.20 (some for take out):

Food/Drink: Do Your Thing Coffee, Frama Coffee, Waterstop, Hotel St. George (also has book store and gift shop), Cochineal, Bad Hombres, Lost Horse, Casita Bar, Food Shark, Convenience West, Stellina at the Get Go, Para Llevar Pizza, Pizza Foundation, The Get Go, Porters.

We look forward to seeing you at the Juniper Moon House! Stay safe and wash your hands!
The bathroom sink is original, and is a traditional British sink with hot and cold water in separate taps. This will be odd at first, but is quite fun once you get the hang of it!

There are a fair amount of adorable cats that roam the area and want very much to make the Juniper Moon House their home. Please keep the front screen door closed so as to not welcome any uninvited guests.

For each reservation, there is a cleaning fee of $60. The room cost reflects a built-in hotel tax of 7% collected by the city. State taxes are now remitted directly by airbnb.

I have a beautiful wife who is an amazing photographer, I grew up on a farm feeding chickens and cows, the Beatles are the best, I have an overweight cat named Lennon, a puppy named Juniper, and I love falling asleep in planes and waking up in different countries. Anything else, just ask :).
