You can't beat the location; it's minutes from Big Bend. The house itself is cute; no A/C in the extra bedrooms but you can open the door or the windows to cool off. The kitchen is missing just a few things if you plan to do a lot of cooking. A colander, garlic press, etc. but has all the basics.

Molly was a great host. The directions provided were necessary and accurate. Her house is located as close to Big Bend National Park as one can get. The convenient grocery store is a walkable distance and very handy. The home was clean with plenty of additional bedding and all the info readily accessible. We had a wonderful time and would certainly return and recommend to others.

If you plan on going to Big Bend, this is the PERFECT home base! Molly was an excellent host and we really enjoyed our stay at Casita Blanca! She provides appreciated the quick and clear communication. The house was as described and shown in the photos. There are plenty of blankets, extra sheets, towels, etc. Views of the night sky here are absolutely amazing. You can see the Milky Way very clearly! The park entrance is right around the corner, and it's a quick drive into Terlingua for breakfast or dinner. Having the Cottonwood grocery store right across the street was very useful for getting hiking snacks, and ice cream to enjoy at night. There is a binder that provides the history of the house that was an interesting read. Don't forget to sign the guest book pages at the back!

Pros: The location to Big Bend National park is fantastic. There is a very nice grocery store just across the street from the house that will have anything that you need. Cons: No air conditioning in two of the bedrooms. No laundry facilities. You have to carry your trash to Alpine, TX to dump it. (If you have a pickup this isn't a big deal)

This place was great and Molly was super accommodating. The location is literally just a few minutes from the entrance to big bend and also close to a grocery store and fuel stop. Loved our stay here and will be back soon.
