Tony is a great host, very friendly and gives great advices about what to do in the city. He even put together a guidebook by himself. Also the yard is gorgeous!
The hospitality was amazing and the house was well kept.
Tony was not only a great host, but very accommodating and gave us some great suggestions about what to do in the city.
Gorgeous home, and great attention to detail.
Would recommend 10/10
And will be coming back!
This house was a perfect find. Eight of us rented it for 2015. Tony was the best host I've ever dealt with. I still talk with him to this day. His house is amazingly comfortable. His art work is all over the house and it will keep you in awe. There is plenty of room inside and the outside is breathtaking, from the two koi ponds, to the grille and sushi table next to the first gazebo, and the second gazebo with a fireplace in it. Tony is the best host on Airbnb. I plan to rent his house every time we have a show in Austin. DO NOT PASS ON THIS HOUSE!
Tony was a great host. The location and price for our stay during SXSW was perfect. Be warned - the house is quite eccentric and may not be for everyone. There is a lot of memorabilia, books, and even a tortoise in the backyard. There are 3 true bedrooms (with very comfortable beds), but then one bed is in a very small shed, which is not ideal, and another room is not done. There is plenty of room at least two people to sleep in the living room on the couch. Also, note that Tony spends a lot of time in the house and works long hours from his studio that is attached to the house, so there is not always the privacy you may desire.
Amazing place, very unique, very clean, and exactly what you should expect from a an amazing airbnb host. There's lots of room with well kept bedrooms and bathrooms. The place is located next to some killer fun spots. Perfect for a sxsw experience.
We feel we really hit the jackpot with this rental. Tony was an "above and beyond" host. We rented this out for a party, and it was the perfect venue. The backyard is gorgeous at night. And we loved all of Tony's artwork around the house. Everything was clean and cozy. Would definitely recommend.
Tony and Elise were perfect hosts! I will definitely stay with him again if I am ever back in Austin, and their roommate is a delightful young lady with a wonderful mind and quick wit.
They have many wonderful things in their home, and outside! Do yourself a favor and stay with them!
For my first ever Airbnb experience I couldn't have chosen a better host. Tony as a host was hands down the most helpful and informative experience I've ever had any bed and breakfast or hotel. Accommodations were clean, well stocked, and a visual splendor to behold. This booking is perfect for anybody with even an inkling of an artistic nature or has a fondness for very interesting people. 5 stars on accommodations. 5 stars on host. and 5 stars on the assembled guide book tony has lovingly put together. I'm a thousand percent sure but I will return to this listing many times over. Provided availability of course, my only regret was that I did not make it to chicken s*** bingo. Outside of that with the aid of Tony we had the perfect austin adventure.
We had a great time at Tony's place. The house was very clean and Tony made it very special for us with a christmas tree, some free drinks and an amazing backyard which can host a big group.
What's more, he showed his studio and his awesome artwork. Thanks for a great experience Tony and hope to be back in Austin sometime soon!
