Casa Tranquila has new owners. They purchased and renamed the property. If you've stayed at Casa del Oso before, it is now the quiet house and no longer the bear house.
Casa Tranquila (Quiet House), is a lovely and secluded home on twenty private acres of Terlingua Ranch. It is eco-friendly, with solar and wind power and rainwater catchment. Nestled in the saddle to two hills, the home has fantastic mountain views and lots of breezes. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy sunrises, sunsets, dark night skies, or a modern camp fire at the propane fire pit.
This well-appointed two-bedroom home with a sleeping loft sleeps four to six. We recommend it for four or fewer. The house was custom built by the prior owners. The current owners enjoy it as their personal getaway and are proud to share it with others. After staying here once, you will want to return again and again.
The kitchen, dining room, and living room are open and spacious, with vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light, and windows for enjoying the views. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with all the cookware and dishes for enjoying meals together. The living room is designed for relaxing together, with comfortable seating, room to relax, charming décor, and a television with Dish Network and access to your Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services.
The bedrooms and sleeping loft will sleep four to eight. Both downstairs bedrooms have a queen-sized bed. The sleeping loft has a full betwo twin beds. The sleeping loft has a low ceiling and is ideal for children. However, we recommend that it not be used during the summer months due to heat rising into the loft area.
Outside of the house, there are shaded porches, stone patios, outdoor seating, a propane fire pit, charcoal grill, covered parking, and twenty acres of private Chihuahua desert habitat to hike and explore.
