Duende is a slice of real-life Marfa, well curated but also designed to be lived in and enjoyed. Situated in a peaceful neighborhood just eight minutes from the heart of downtown, Duende is excellent for groups or those traveling alone - a perfect home base for creating and exploring in the Big Bend region. Chill out in the hammock room or cozy up in front of a fire in the the great room! This home is family and pet friendly.

The space
Duende Marfa was originally built in 1945 with an addition in the 1980s that created a floorplan for entertaining. The home was recently updated throughout for comfort but retains the old school charm and character Marfa is known for.

The master and second bedroom both have king sized beds with cotton sheets and down duvets. The third bedroom features two twin sized day-beds, and the hammock room also has a twin daybed to sleep a seventh guest if desired.

The guest bathroom is a jack-and-jill between bedrooms two and three, and features a stall shower. The master bathroom is a full bath with tub, as well as a bluetooth speaker. Both bathrooms are stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

The kitchen has been updated with all new Samsung appliances and features a gas stove. Sufficient cookware to prepare most meals is in the cupboards.

There are two living spaces, the large great room has a fireplace for cold nights as well as a 4k smart TV equipped with Roku and DishTV. Finally, a hammock hangs in the room right off of the kitchen, perfect for reading or enjoying a glass of wine.

Where you’ll be

Marfa, Texas, United States

Duende Marfa is located in the North West Washington Heights neighborhood of Marfa, TX. We are only an 8 minute walk from Marfa’s main street and also 1 block away from beautiful ranch views that look west. It is very easy to walk to any of Marfa’s fantastic restaurants, and equally easy to take a stroll under the stars away from city lights.

We are located on a hill with some distance from the train tracks, so the neighborhood is quieter than other areas in town.

One of Duende's next-door neighbors runs a foster effort for local cats and kittens. These cats are very gregarious and will more than likely visit the front and back yard during your stay.
