The Perch is a retro meets modern, fully off-grid “cabin-inspired” home — Set into the cliff edge of a 60+ million-year-old limestone plateau, you’ll have one-of-a-kind views overlooking the historic Terlingua Ghost Town and into the expanse of the Chisos mountain range of Big Bend National Park. Nestled on 20 acres of pristine Chihuahuan desert, it is the perfect property for couples, a small family, a group of hikers or anyone who wants to enjoy the solitude and wonder of the Big Bend region.

The space
★ 4 king beds, 2 lofts, 1 bathhouse
★ Indoor and outdoor shower + “cowboy” soaking tub
★ Fully equipped kitchen
★ Outdoor fire pit + chiminea
★ Fully Off-Grid - state-of-the-art solar system, battery storage and rain catchment
★ 10-15 minute drive to the heart of the Terlingua Ghost Town
★ Original artwork showcasing Texas artists and those inspired by the Big Bend region
★ Certified “Dark Sky Friendly” lighting by the McDonald Observatory Dark Sky Initiative
★ Partial proceeds donated to local charitable organizations and park foundations

** Cleaning Protocols ***
Living in Terlingua is difficult. We pay above the living wage standards; 100% of your cleaning fee is paid to the cleaners (i.e. no profit to us) and we insist on a professional level of cleaning between guests.

Hi! I am a freelance travel photographer and filmmaker living in Bremerton, Washington. I move around a lot for work and escape pretty often via Airbnb to avoid the hotel grind.

Over the years I’ve taken notes on the places I’ve been fortunate enough to visit and capture. My passion has been to create and curate spaces that are eco-focused, whether it be totally off-grid, designed with sustainability and natural materials in mind, or immersion in the natural environment as the focus. I hope to host you or visit you soon.

I look forward to meeting you!
