Owner/host of Mel's Place, a 20 acre property with a unique cozy off grid glamping casita and primitive campground with amazing views of Big Bend National Park and located just a mile from amenities and five miles from the park. I enjoy camping, learning new things, outdoor living, live music, good food, time with friends around a campfire, arts and crafts when nature inspires me. I'm a retired landscape designer and now vacation rental host in the desert of far west Texas. Having great life experiences is what I believe in and try to be grateful every day for the chance to do so here amongst the harsh beauty of the Chihuahuan desert. When friends visit Mel's Place they often say it feels special and that it has a great energy. I hope all my guests feel the same and treat it as their own. Enjoy!
