Timothy et al. are perfect hosts. The room I stayed was just perfect for one person and the house has everything you might need. They even gave me a bike to move around Austin during my stay. I had a great time. Thanks guys!
Timothy's been a good friend for nine years. He's a great person, and his house is beautiful. It's tucked away in a quiet street end by a bamboo thicket. This house itself is lovely: It's full of light and beautiful wood floors in the common area, with some awesome furniture/decor thanks to the architects and art/furniture makers who live there. The back yard makes you want to read a book all day outside. It's large, green, and great for lounging about on the porch or by the fire pit or picnic table. Timothy's room has a Marfa/Thunderbird Hotel vibe in its simplicity and well-done elements. The crew living there is great, and they're well-integrated contributors to the Austin community, especially in the arts. Timothy is intellectually sharp and full of good information, he's got a great sense of humor, and fairness is extremely important to him. We've gone on a few road trips over the years and he's a minimal traveler, but understands that not everyone is! I highly recommend his beautiful home to Airbnb-ers.
Timothy has been a friend of mine for years. He's an honest, flexible guy. His place is quiet, close to downtown and filled with great guys. Stay with him for sxsw!
