This space has so much potential, but it failed on many levels.
AC - the space has a split AC unit, but it is in the kitchen. The first night it was so hot in the bedroom we had to pull the mattress into the kitchen to sleep
Outside bathtub- roof is covered so you can’t see the stars. Tub was filthy. The owner did leave cleaning supplies so we could clean the tub... but who’s going on vacation to do that.
Wi-fi- as far as we could tell the router was in a nearby house so it worked horribly in the space.
Beds- so uncomfortable, I love the minimalism that Marfa offers, however if you only have a few elements in the space what you put in the space should be quality. Especially in this type of accommodation, the beds should have been more comfortable.
We love Marfa and we will be back, but not back to this VRBO
Unique Restored Service Station
This was the perfect place for me and my dogs to relax and enjoy Marfa. It's on the main street and you can walk to several restaurants like The Water Stop, Capri, or Hombres and Planet Marfa.
My dogs loved the covered outdoor patio with its locking gates. Great place to have a beer and watch the day or night sky.
The interior is well laid out and nicely styled in clean southwest aesthetics. You definitely feel like you are in "far west Texas" and you can safely say you've never stayed in a converted gas station before. There was definitely a lot of thought put into the space and its contents.
Great place, great location
We loved staying at the Highland Service Station. Great amenities and great location. Hosts were super easy to communicate with. We would definitely love to stay here again!
perfect set up for a casual and unique weekend rental
fantastic experience in Marfa TX
Our property was perfect. Beds were comfortable and super clean. Great outdoor space and located to everything in town. It was very dog friendly with stone floors, so bring their bed. Kitchen is modern and supplied with everything you will need to eat-in/cook or store leftovers from going out. Bathroom is huge with large shower.
We had one hiccup that was self inflicted but rectified by management very quickly and effortlessly. We will look for them again when we come back to this fantastic little town.
Really unique place with historic charm - quite cozy and a minute drive to the center of town!
This place was super unique and true to Marfa with its quirkiness. It is very clean and the mix of historic charm with modern sleek accents was visually pleasing. Even made use of the outdoor tub! I imagine during warmer months, that taking one at night looking up at the stars would be sublime (it was February, so a day time bath it was!).
The host was also quick to reply with instructions on how to get in when we couldn't get the arrival packet to download when we pulled up.
A couple of small things would have made the stay a 5-star experience: coffee to use in the coffee maker, wifi (the wifi was out our entire stay despite several attempts to reset the router - and cell service is spotty, so quality wifi is key if you aren't able to 100% disconnect from the world during your stay in Marfa), and a longer cord for the space heater to keep it further away from the bed (other outlets were too far from the bed to have kept us warm during the cold nights).
