Mark was a fantastic communicator, the apartment was a perfect location for our needs, and it was well-equipped with everything you may need or want. We used the grill, the kitchen, and enjoyed the quiet setting. Really a great spot and no surprises. Thank you!

The Bird's Eye View is well-named as the views across town and into the mountains are gorgeous. Very comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed watching Alpine's herd of very tame mule deer wander around people's yards in the afternoons, and the hike on the Sul Ross grounds was a kid-friendly way to sweat out the New Year's Eve excesses. Mark was responsive to questions and very friendly, even though we never had occasion or need to meet in person. Would definitely rebook in the future. We also enjoyed the LBJ Ranch-style bathroom with its pristine 1970s fixtures. ;) What a great (fully functional) time capsule!

Alpine Native, World Traveler, I like people, good food and seasonal beverages. Getting people and food together is top priority. Throw in a river and or mountain bike trail and that's paradise.
I want you to enjoy your stay, if there is anything I can do to make it great let me know!
