The Shy Studio is located 1.5 miles East of town off of a dirt road. Still close to town, but far enough out to enjoy the quiet, see the sunset and sunrise, and lay in a hammock under a blanket of stars.

The space
This 380 square foot duplex studio apartment has everything you need and is perfect for one or two guests! Fully stocked kitchen, small bathroom with shower, and super comfy queen size bed. A window unit AC to keep you cool in the summer, and an electric fireplace to keep you warm on those chilly West Texas nights. There is no TV, but we do have WIFI so you can stream your favorite shows on your own mobile device or laptop. You have your own private fenced yard with a sitting area and BBQ/fire pit. There is also a laundry room available to all guests with a coin operated washer and dryer. You are responsible for bringing your own laundry detergent and change. We do not have a change machine. Please note: This is a duplex. There is another apartment next door that is also an Airbnb.

Guest access
Guest have access to their own private studio apartment and fenced yard as well as your own parking space.

Other things to note
Please note: This property is not child proof. We do not allow small children. Two adult guests only! NO PETS! Sorry, but there are no exceptions to this rule!

Rancho Villarreal is on 5 acres with some permanent tenants. We have a small trailer park on the other side of the property with one permanent resident. There is also a maintenance man that lives in a trailer at the end of the property.

This is a duplex apartment. There is another apartment next door that is also an Airbnb. Each apartment has their own private back yard with a privacy fence so you cannot see into your neighbors yard.

There are steps to get into the bathroom so if you are unable to use steps. you might want to take note of this.

The property is located off of a dirt road. The road is well maintained but on occasion we do get some crazy rain storms so the road can get muddy. If you are worried about dirt, dust, or mud, this might not be the place for you.

Things run at a slower pace in Marfa. This includes technology. Internet and cell phone service can be spotty. West Texas weather can be unpredictable. A lot of businesses are not open Sunday through Tuesday. If you are here in the beginning of the week or during a busy weekend, it's possible you might have a hard time getting into a restaurant. We suggest stopping by the local grocery store and getting yourself some snacks.

There is a train that rolls through town often. No matter where you are staying in Marfa you can hear the train. If you decide to take a stroll around the property there are stickers, there are critters, and there can be snakes hiding in the tall brush so be smart when roaming around the desert. We have zero control over mother nature. It can get windy. We get crazy rain storms in the summer. It gets cold in the winter. You might have a visit from a grasshopper or a spider. You might see a giant jackrabbit cross your path. Every once in a while a neighbors friendly dog might wander onto the property. Basically if you don't like the sound of trains, the sound of wind, a little dust, the possibility of a sticker getting stuck in your shoe, and an occasional visit from an insect, you might want to book a room at a 5 star hotel that is not in Marfa.

Please bring your patience with you, slow down, take a breath, and enjoy Marfa for what it is.
