Gorgeous villa in the middle of the desert? No problem- we've got you covered! Enjoy private courtyard entrance, breathtaking views, bird watching at the fountain, or a stroll around a lovely neighborhood, just a couple of blocks from the Country Club!
Loft 1 and 2 have a Jack and Jill bathroom (you get both lofts in this listing), featuring two bedrooms, private bath, fridge and microwave. Park up to 8 vehicles. Covered motorcycle parking. Additional lofts available for groups.
Stargaze at night, bird watch by day, from your own balcony. Or, take a short jaunt to Big Bend National Park, Fort Davis, Marfa, Marathon, or down to Ojinaga Mexico for shopping, as Alpine happens the be the hub for the Big Bend area. Bring your small dogs and your motorcycles- we have an outdoor pen and covered bike parking! Don't forget your golf clubs either- we're a couple of blocks from #8 green at the Alpine Country Club! We're a few blocks from the University, making the Lofts the ideal place to stay for short term visiting lecturers and academics. The neighborhood is quiet, and we take up half the city block.
Owners live on site, in the main house. There are four lofts with adjoining bathrooms between #1 & 2 and #3 & 4, so you'll actually get use of two lofts, depending in which side you select. We can sleep a total of seven in #1/2, and a total of ten in #3/4 if you're bringing a group. Lofts have access to a shared outdoor kitchen and bathroom, making this a fantastic venue for weddings and special events, with tons of off street parking!
Guests provided with linens, shampoo/ conditioner, lotion, towels and washcloths, grilling utensils. Due to the shared spaces , concrete steps, fall hazards and courtyard water feature, we strongly discourage children.
Indoor/ Outdoor shared kitchen, private courtyard with fountain, off street parking with motion sensing lighting, balcony views, outdoor games, pergola with grill
Neighborhood is residential (so please be mindful of noise levels after 10:00 p.m.), with easy access to the golf course, City Park, Kokernot Field (Home of the O6 Cowboys!), Sul Ross State University and scenic Loop Road. Abundant wildlife, including numerous deer, quiet neighborhood and awesome views.
Enter property through the alleyway to the left of the house. Parking available on north end of the property, off street. Use this entrance to access courtyard. If you're coming on a motorcycle, you should park in the covered front driveway to avoid the gravel. Owners have bikes too, so we understand!
We LOVE pets! But, please know that there are expectations when you bring your furbabies.
Please bring pets into the courtyard on a leash. We have three inside dogs that may be outside when you arrive, and will put them in after they do their business. Small dogs only unless you contact me ahead of time and we agree. Big Bend National Park highly discourages pets in the park due to bear and wildlife attacks- we provide an outside dog run, as well as a very large crate on the back porch if you need to leave your pet here while you're out.
If you're going to leave your dog in the room while you're gone, please leave them in a crate. We reserve the right to move your pets to the dog run if they are barking and disturbing other guests. I'll message you before we do that, but know that you may not have cell service, depending on where in this area you are travelling. If we cannot reach you via Airbnb or on your cell phone, we may opt to go ahead and move them.
Entry code is 4206
Parking- Pull in on Cockrell Street between East Avenue A and East Nations St. Take the alley to the left of the front door and park in front if the garages, pulling straight in as a courtesy to owners and guests. You'll see a doorway between the garages and main house that says "Welcome". Enter there and follow signs up the stairs and to your vacation Loft! Check in by simply letting us know you've arrived in your app. Doors will be unlocked when you arrive. Keys to Lofts will be on your chalkboard. When you leave, simply leave the keys right back where they were when you got here, and send me a quick message via your app. That's it!
Accessibility- This is a second story, so there are stairs to climb.
Kitchen is downstairs in the courtyard. Guests share this kitchen; we have another in the main house for us.
This is a non smoking property, with exception of the courtyard. Dispose of all ashes in the metal container at the top of the stairs. Please do not throw stubs in the alley or next to the dumpster. Be respectful of other guests onsite.
Televisions are Smart Roku TVs. You can access your Nerflix, Hulu, etc.
There is motion sensor lighting in the entry corridor, downstairs breezeway and stairwell. You have the ability to turn on the balcony lights from your Loft- but please be mindful of the stargazers around you. This part of the country is Certified Dark Skies, so most of us spend time outdoors looking upward- trust us, you'll be amazed!
You are in a residential neighborhood. Although the courtyard is very private, please be mindful of our neighbors and our grandchildren. There are yard games for your enjoyment. Feel free to use the kitchen, there are pots and pans in the cupboards, utensils and a grill under the pergola. No spices, oils, etc. so bring them or make a run to the grocery store. Other than that, you're set!
Events- Please run it by us before you invite people to our home. We're pretty flexible, but may have other plans going for that space. If we are using the space to cook out, etc., we'll be certain to invite you!
