The pictures are just like it shows, EXCEPT, the Owners house shares the same, very bumpy driveway. Owners house is at a higher level then the Guest House. They can sit on their veranda and look over onto your "Secluded Area". Not too neat when the shower is outside. I asked for a key to the place, and was told there isn't one. That was not acceptable. Not going to leave stuff in a place that can not be locked. The A/C did not cool off the house. Very cute and would have loved to stay, but not having a key to lock up and the A/C not cooling was a deal breaker. Was supposed to stay 4 days. Spent one night and left. The Owner was generous and refunded me most of the money.

Management Response

Yep, that is what happened. A new split system a/c and heater was installed after they left so the place has perfect temperature now. As to the key complaint, most people relish the opportunity to go to a place that is that safe. We have taken a vow of poverty in Terlingua and no one wants someone else's stuff. If a guest arrives with a $30,000 French horn, we have a place for it. Finally, the outside temperature was between 100 and 110 and "brutal" when they were here. Its the Chihuahua desert in June/July, it is going to be hot. I tell everyone that before they arrive in the Welcome Letter. The best times to come here are September through May. Sometimes an unusual hotel in a unusual place is not a good fit for everyone.

Perfect get-a-way for hiking, star gazing, local entertainment, food and access to this wonderfully remote spot in Texas. We are to hospitality owners who loved the kitchen and the views and location. Cynta was a doll and knows the area well. Can't wait to go back.
