September 2021 My wife and I stayed in the Guest House. The place was beautiful, the night sky's we're spectacular. Cynta is very knowledgeable, interesting and is a great host. If we get out to Terlingua again (I hope we do.) We will definitely be staying at Villa Terlingua again. My wife left some clothes behind by mistake and Cynta went out of her way and shipped the clothes to our house. Also Cynta dog Baxter is one cool dude. Cynta hope we get out to see you again. Love Dave and Regina

Stayed in two houses on Mid April for a week, both quaint and filled all my needs, beautiful architecture, views and wildlife. Owner Cynta is the main reason as she has created a wonderland experience and her hospitality is off the charts. Everything is well thought out and provided for. I used her property as my jumping off point for hiking and birding Big Bend N.P. Perfect location and the town of Terlingua is a must see. A lot of fun things around. Much better stay here than in motels in Big Bend.

We have traveled to many amazing destinations and stayed at some wonderful places, but this is a one-of-a-kind. My husband and I loved our time at Big Bend NP and the Guest House. It was uniquely designed, eclectic, had the most incredible views, and provided the opportunity for us to disconnect from the craziness of the outside world, reconnect with one another, and find an inner peace. Magical. Cynta has created a place that is a blessing to all those who pass through. After three days celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary in May, we are hooked. A return trip is already planned for January.

Eight of us hard-working Texas women, (ages 36 thru 68!) spent a week in Terlingua throughly enthralled with the Chihuahaun Desert climate and scenery as viewed from the Villa Terlingua, our "home away from home". We arranged to have both the Main House and the Guest House. Each place met our expectations and then some! Both were perfectly lovely. Comfortable & convenient to all we had come to do: Walking & Hiking, Visiting & Touring the Big Bend Nat'l Park, Attending Live Music at the Starlight, etc,etc. We especially loved preparing meals together in the well-provisioned kitchens. And the bathrooms were divine with clawfoot tubs and showers...indoor and outdoor! I must add: the Beds were All Very Compfortable! The owner/concierge,Cynta certainly made us feel welcome by attending to all our needs promptly and offering us insider-type info about the area. From my bed in the Guest House, I was awakened by Spectacular Sunrises over the mountains. (My choice: I could've closed the curtains!) The Wrap Around Porch and Each of the Patios made Outside Living easy and enticing! (Perhaps we were a little too exhuberant outside ...chatting and giggling. We were politely reprimanded by the owner. For any trouble we may have caused her or others, we were and are deeply apologetic.) If you desire a place to stay while you explore this amazing desert area, Villa Terlingua surely is the best! All 8 of us highly recommend Villa Terlingua and do plan on returning with our families & other friends.

Room Tip: Renting two? Maybe Main & Blue Houses, being shortest distance from one another and across...

We stayed in this beautiful place while visiting Big Bend National Park. It was amazing. One night we slept outside in the bed on the patio. The sky is so black and clear that we saw stars up close. We even saw the Milky Way; a first for us. The hammock was the perfect spot for a nap. The sunrise from the porch was breathtaking. Wow!!
