Meet Darla Juhl, Our Village Queen!

Here at Eagle Ford Village we pride ourselves on our amazing team of staff members. Meet Darla Juhl, our Property Manager of Eagle Ford Village, a.k.a our Village Queen! Darla pretty much runs the place, and you can always find her on-site making sure the place runs smoothly. Darla’s hardworking nature and positive spirit make her one of the most valuable people on our team!

Darla moved to the Eagle Ford Shale last October from South West Missouri because she was ready for her next adventure … and we are so glad she did!

“The first time I saw Eagle Ford Village it was just a big field with a couple of roads. I have to admit I was a little scared and shocked at the same time. Now that I am coming up on my 10 month anniversary with Eagle Ford Village, each day that goes by I am more and more proud of what we have built here. The tennants tell us all the time that they feel comfortable and relaxed and I am proud to have been a part of Eagle Ford Village from the beginning. After all of the long hours that the men and women who reside here work, I am so glad that this is their home away from home.” — Darla 

We couldn’t be happier and more proud to have Darla on our team! Eagle Ford Village rents homes and suites by the day, week, month, or year! Contact Darla at any time to reserve your workforce housing!

Big Things Happening in the Eagle Ford Shale

There was a great article on MySA this week called “Eagle Ford could usher in a new era” this week. The article discusses the booming business happening in the Eagle Ford Shale and the author, Mickey Roth, President emeritus of Intercontinental Wealth Advisors LLC, even goes so far as to say  “I have read that by about 2020, our nation may no longer need to import oil from OPEC.

Here at Eagle Ford Village, located in Dilley, Texas, we certainly can confirm how busy the area has been. We have been at capacity consistently since we opened and are now just getting ready to launch Phase II which will offer even more hotel accommodations.

This is good news as it is expected that there will be continued job growth in the Eagle Ford Shale. We look forward to continuing to expand Eagle Ford Village and provide hotel and motel workforce housing. We offer long-term hotel stays and short-term hotel stays in Eagle Ford for all of your needs.

This Week Former First Lady Larura Bush Visited the Eagle Ford Shale! PLUS, Our Phase II Update

This week was an exciting one in the Eagle Ford Shale as former First Lady Laura Bush visited the region to discuss conservation efforts in the South Texas oil fields. According to the San Antonio Express News:

She did a rig tour in June with representatives of Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Wildlife Association and the South Texas Energy & Economic Roundtable. And if you’re surprised that the words “Laura Bush” are colliding in the same sentence as “rig tour,” Bush’s nonprofit, Taking Care of Texas, is all about blending business with environmental responsibility, and has a goal of “safeguarding natural resources with respect for private property interests.

Taking Care of Texas says it is working with the oil and gas industry in the Eagle Ford region on things such as erosion control, native plant reseeding and salvaging topsoil on drilling locations.

“Taking Care of Texas is about building on existing conservation efforts,” said Bush, in a press release. “We are working with developers of the Eagle Ford Shale because it’s important to take care of the landscapes and wildlife habitat where drilling occurs. We want Texas to be a leader in meeting the nation’s energy needs while conserving soil and habitat and boosting the economy in South Texas.”

 

We think it’s great that she came down to the area! Laura Bush’s visit isn’t the only exciting news we have for the week though. Our Phase II development is still moving along at a great speed and we are almost complete with installing all of our water and sewer lines for the new two bedroom homes that will be arriving soon! These homes will be rented for long-term, short-term and by the night accommodations for workforce housing in the Eagle Ford Shale.

If you have any questions or comments about our homes please don’t hesitate to contact us any time! We are located in Dilley, Texas.

Why stay at Hotel in Eagle Ford Shale?

Eagle Ford Shale has experienced tremendous growth with explosions of hotels going up and down the corridor on I-35 and I-37. Hotels are charging anywhere from $125 to $250 per night for a room less than 350 sq. ft.

Oil and Gas service men can spend 2 weeks to one month in a hotel. Most service personnel are finding that after a few nights stay in a hotel they miss the comforts of home which include privacy, and space.

There is now a solution! We have just opened the new Eagle Ford Village, located in the center of the Eagle Ford Shale Play in Dilley, Texas.  Eagle Ford Village one bedroom homes offer twice the space at half the price of a hotel room.  Each home comes with a large Smart HD TV with DISH NET including HBO and specialty channels in the living room with additional TV(s) in the bedroom, and that’s not all:

  • Full size stove
  • Built in GE Microwave
  • Full size GE refrigerator
  • Built in GE dishwasher

  • Extra large pillows and high quality sheets
  • Whisper quite central air conditioner
  • Extra large towels
  • WI-FI high speed extreme Internet
  • Personal drive way
  • Full washer & dryer
