Desert Flamingo - 1970s Themed Vacation Rental in Alpine, TX offers the nostalgia of the 1970's through colorful & period décor. 2BR/2BA, (master bedroom - queen, 2nd bedroom 2 xtra long twin beds, living room - queen sleeper sofa) sleeps 6 & is dog & family friendly (high chair & Pack & Play provided). Located in a small, quiet mobile home park on the south side of Alpine, guests are just a short drive to local establishments and can enjoy day trips throughout the region.

The space
Like RV Campers, mobile homes have a make, model, and name. This mobile home was built in the late 70’s and given the name Flamingo. That provided owners, Ruben and Paige, the idea to create a 70’s themed short-term rental. Located in the Chihuahuan Desert, Desert Flamingo provides a unique experience that brings together nostalgia of the past with a getaway where guests can relax and enjoy the West Texas landscape of blue skies, starry nights, mountain views and desert climate.

The colorful & period décor of Desert Flamingo is paired with quality amenities to include ceiling fans and remote-controlled AC/Heating units for personal comfort in each bedroom. As well as new mattresses, new sleeper sofa and mattress, and linens.

This property is unique & fun. It will appeal to each guest in a special way and bring family and friends together. Desert Flamingo offers one of the best views in town to enjoy wildlife sightings, sunsets, star gazing and Twin Peaks Mountains. Guests can gather around 2 firepits to end the day and roast marshmallows. Grassy areas offer a great spot to pitch a tent and sleep in the desert air (tent not included) and there are 3 parking areas to accommodate every vehicle.

Desert Flamingo is a perfect getaway for families, couples, a girl’s weekend, a base for hikers, bikers and hunters, remote workers or anyone who wants to escape their busy life. It is a comfortable accommodation with amenities to make each stay relaxing, rejuvenating, memorable & fun. It truly is one of a kind.

Where you’ll be

Alpine, Texas, United States

Desert Flamingo is located on the southwest side of town which has just begun to experience restoration and rejuvenation efforts to showcase its history and character. Every effort has gone into making sure guests feel comfortable and enjoy their stay from beginning to end. Owners, Ruben and Paige grew up in Alpine and Ruben’s childhood home is on the same street as Desert Flamingo. They left in the 1980’s to go to college and pursue their careers. After many years, they had a desire to get back to their roots and in 2018 they bought 3 acres to include the small mobile home park where Desert Flamingo is located, a small 1930’s adobe house on the opposite side of the property and 3 goats. When Ruben and Paige need to get away from their fast-paced city life, they stay at Desert Flamingo to slow down and recharge. It holds a special place in their hearts, and they want to share that experience with others.

Alpine is located in far West Texas, a remote, high-desert jewel with an altitude of 4,481 feet. It is flanked by the Davis Mountains to the north & the Glass Mountains to the east. Every route is scenic & day trips to Big Bend National Park, McDonald Observatory or art-mecca Marfa provides a variety of activities.
