Our 225 sq ft casita is 2 miles from the Terlingua Ghostown with it's magnificent views. It is easy to get to many restaurants, bars, the local outfitters, and both the National and State parks. We are close to fuel, grocery, bank, post office and more. Our casita offers an ambiance that is over the top indoors and out. It offers quality and comfort with ac/heat, outdoor grill & more. Perfect for couples, solo adventures and business travelers. We have a full house generator for power outages.

The space
The casita is 225 square feet but we have utilized the space well and it is more than adequate for the average persons. There is walk-around room on both sides of the bed. The bed is a new 10" Serta mattress. The lavatory counter has room for your toiletries. The sofa could sleep a child or small person. The shower fixture has a hand-held personal spray as well as the wall mount. There are solar lights in & around the patio. The mini-fridge is large enough to hold your cold & frozen items. The satellite tv has local news from Midland/Odessa + top 200. The two outdoor seating/dining areas are comfortable, one has a gas grill and sink. Microwave is also available, in warm weather we put it on the patio, when it is cooler, we leave it in the storage room adjoining the casita. Please let us know if you prefer to use the microwave. The patios are great for morning coffee, cocktails, grilling out and star gazing at night. You will be very comfortable in this space. If you are traveling with more then 2 guests we do have another rental casita on property that may be available, please check Cinco Circle Casita availability or inquire directly.

Guest access
You will have access to the casita, it's patios and driveway. Please note there is one other rental casita on the property, our personal residence, storage and office space. Please be respectful to other's privacy.

Other things to note
Should you be here at a time with heavy rain, you will need to use caution on unpaved roads, S County is one. The desert is a very beautiful place, but many things sting, bite or stick. Please watch where you are walking. After dark always have a flashlight. It is very dark, with no street lights, so be wary of rocks, plants with stickers, insects and desert creatures. The nearest hospital is 80 miles away, as is a pharmacy. We do have very dedicated EMS responders in the area. Cell service is not always available. Walmart is 160 miles from Terlingua, so try to bring what you will need.

My husband, Jimmy & I have been together 38 years. He started coming to the Big Bend in 1976, and brought me at Christmas 1980. I became a competition chili cook in 1990, so Terlingua really became important to us both. It is the home of the International Chili Championship. We have attended that for the last 28 years. Jimmy has been in construction most all the time we have been a couple. I joined him in our business in 1998 (previously I spent 32 years in dentistry) We have built 20+ homes together, including our two Casitas you will love. I love to cook & entertain. I love to read and visit my friends and we love to travel in our rv.
