We have a small bunkhouse for rent. It's usually our guest room when we have extended family in town and stuff. It's recently remodeled and attached to the wood-shop in our backyard along w covered area, hammock, etc. Easy access to all of Alpine! Bathroom is in the main house with 24/7 access.

De ruimte

This is a little bunkhouse attached to our woodshop in the backyard--it's recently constructed and (in our humble opinion) quite nice. It is a rustic space with some dust and occasional bugs. It's the desert--not chic urban living. It always has clean sheets and we try to keep it tidy. Currently has a set of bunkbeds, a queen bed, and a couch. Guessing it could sleep 4 adults or a couple and 2 kids. We live in a quiet neighborhood w ample street-side parking. Unfortunately, there is no restroom out there. Guests will be able to use the guest bathroom with easy access in the main house any time day or night. There is a shower in the house and we do have plenty of clean towels (we usually have some travel bottles, but you should bring your own soap and shampoo).

There is air conditioning and heating in the bunkhouse.

To reach the bunkhouse, park in front of the house and walk through the little gate on the left side of the house. The bunkhouse is in the back left corner of the backyard. If I know you're coming and I'm in town, I will leave the lights on for you.

Call or Text message works better if you need something the day of your arrival (or urgently), as we don't check our email that often.

Checkin: Show up and walk in!! There is no key to find or procedure. It's always nice to get a text message reminder that you're coming and what time you expect to arrive.

Checkout: place any used sheets and towels in the house in the laundry room. Sweep the floor and take the trash out to the dumpster behind the bunkhouse in the alley. It helps us avoid a cleaning fee and keep costs down if folks pitch in to keep the place ready for the next guests.

Toegang voor gasten

Additionally, we have a gazillion (gazebo + pavillion) that folks are welcome to use as well as a gas grill and a fire pit. We only ask that you buy your own firewood or reimburse us for ours if you want to make a fire.

We do have a kitchen in the main house, but would not routinely have guests cooking in there. If you needed to prepare food for grilling or wash a few dishes, we could probably work out something on a case-by-case basis. We do have password-protected wireless internet available (netgear94, unevenboat967).

Interactie met gasten

We're kind of open either way. The fact that you will use the guest bathroom in our house, means we'll probably be crossing paths at some point. This space is best used by independent people who just want a little more local flare than a generic hotel would provide when they stay somewhere. We're friendly, outgoing folks and will happily give you tips for enjoying this area. If you build a fire and hang out, then we'll prob hang out a little too--especially if people are picking music.

We are also happy to help you plan your trip and local adventures. We're pretty well-versed with the local attractions (Big Bend National Park, Terlingua, Marfa, Marfa Lights, McDonald Observatory, Balmorrhea--pronounced Bal-More-Ray).

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten

We have 2 pet turtles, a little free library, and we love music (Katie plays guitar and I play banjo).

PETS: we no longer accept pets at this location--sorry for the inconvenience.

Hopefully shouldn't have to put too much here.
- respect the property (and the fact that this is our house--where we live).
- leave the room clean
- keep it down after 10pm
- smoke outside only, pick up butts
- be nice to our neighbors
- don't pet any stray dogs
- don't get drunk and fall into a cactus
- if you have any problems or concerns, contact us immediately!!

Pets: we do allow pets and have a fenced-in yard. Just ask that you clean poo from the yard. We also have chickens (they live in a separate part of the yard) and they ocasioanlly stray from their safe area, so just ask that you accompany any dogs in the yard to protect the chickens onthe rare occasion they get out of their pen.

Please review the checkout policy--we run a very simple Airbnb and try to keep it affordable for everyone (and FUN for us). To help with this, we ask that guests bring in the sheets they used to be washed, take out the trash and sweep the floor.

I give 5 STARS for cleanliness for guests who follow the checkout guidelines.

I give 5 STARS for communication to guests who text or call on the day of their arrival to confirm a check-in time. I don't check email often enough to make it reliable.

While on roadtrip, we were looking for a place that was close to rhe Marfa Lights, McDonald Observatory and Big Bend NP. We found the perfect location in the bunkhouse John offers. I really enjoyed how comfortable the beds are. If I was ever in the neighbourhood, I would definitely stay there again!

Johns bunkhouse was exactly as it was described on the Airbnb site. We were most impressed with the incredible flexibility and John's amenability to meetin any requests we may have had during our stay. The bunkhouse is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and John has an outside area set up with Grill and hammocks which is quite comfortable. There are lits of interesting things to do in the area. Overall a great valye for the price.

I stayed at John's for one night on the way to Big Bend. His home is located about 20 minutes from Marfa and about 2 hours from Big Bend National Park. The beds were super comfortable and he was very accommodating and friendly. We appreciated his local insight with events going on in the area. I recommend this stay for anyone wanting to visit Marfa, Big Bend, or Alpine.

Overall it was a pretty good stay. If you’re a light sleeper the chickens, dogs, and trains will definitely be a problem for you. The room was big and served its purpose. The bathroom situation is a little awkward. You have to enter their house for access, which I was uncomfortable with a stranger (especially in a place where so many own a gun—not saying John does). I had a brief encounter with John he was friendly but didn’t keep me with conversation which I’m fine with, I don’t really enjoy small talk. I’m not sure if the description says towels aren’t provided but there weren’t any in the room so we went and purchased some.

Reactie van John:
It's important to review the property description and itinerary--our bathroom is IN OUR house! Lots of people find this awkward and most of those people find other places to stay. The majority of people who stay here come in the house without any hesitation, and it's certainly not awkward for us. Clean, fresh towels are provided for all guests--they are in the linen closet in bathroom. If something seems out of place, you should always check with your host as some of these issues could be settled with a simple text message. Thanks for staying, hope you had a fun experience at Solange!

John and Katy were incredible hosts. Very kind and welcoming. The bunk house is a perfect place to get a restful nights sleep and so reasonably priced too. There's a radio and record player in the bunk house if you want to chill in there. But the greatest place to kick back, is in the garden. John was great to have a beer with in the evening and would talk to us about the area and expel his knowledge of things we could do. We had a little incident in the morning and needed to take our friend to hospital. John was amazing and went above and beyond the call of duty. All in all it was the best air bnb experience I've ever had. I throughly recommend a stay with John and Katy. Thanks so much

Everything related to our one-night stay at John and Katie's bunkhouse went well and the bunkhouse itself was perfect for our needs. John and Katie both seemed like nice people from our brief interactions with them, and we would definitely stay again in the future.

My wife and I are family medicine doctors in Alpine. We were born and raised in East Texas, but spent the last 4 years in Madison WI. We moved to this area in the fall of 2013 because we have always loved this part of Texas and all the beauty and grandiosity it has to offer (big skies, bright stars, Big Bend, etc). We love to play ultimate frisbee and we both play music (I play banjo and Katie plays guitar).
