We need more than 500 words to describe how absolutely wonderful this place is!!! We contacted Tony about using this place to host our son's rehearsal dinner almost a year ahead of time. Thru the whole process Tony was very helpful (and patient!) with us and all our questions and preparations for our stay. When we arrived we found that Tony had lights strung under the outdoor area to help out with the party! We had 4 other couples stay in the other houses in order to help us out for the weekend and the whole set up of the place worked out perfectly. Every house is set up just right. We were able to cook and just stay on the property to enjoy all it had to offer. There is a grocery story just 15 minutes down the road toward Bastrop, so you don't have to bring everything with you like we did.
For our party we brought 5 patio heaters for the pavilion area and we rented tables and chairs for the dinner and the set up worked out great! Plenty of room and of course, everyone LOVED getting there in time for the amazing sunsets!!! ...we all got to see them every night :)
We also all enjoyed sitting by the fire at night, enjoying the sunset over Austin and the moon rises were spectacular! We thoroughly enjoyed Sunday morning (after all the wedding things) being able to sit out under the covered pavilion and just enjoy the breeze. We were treated to several birds, pics taken, and a nice quiet morning.
Alberto, the caretaker, did just that...he took great care of us and checked in on us everyday. On Sunday, when several of us were walking down the road on the property, Alberto took everyone over to see the new baby goat and other animals up by the road. Our friend's grandson was thrilled!
We can't thank Tony enough for all his help!!! He even called to check on us Sunday to see how the wedding went. He is a most gracious host and our stay here is one we will never forget! :)
We had a great time at Antonio's place. Everyone that came out to dad's memorial fell in love with the place. They thought the gazebo was placed just right to capture the view. We enjoyed sitting out at night around the fire. Thank you for taking such care to create a great place for families to gather! Antonio was a great host, answering all our texts right away. Alberto, was very, very helpful. Thank you and we will try to be back!
This was an amazing place to stay! Each house was tastefully and beautifully decorated! We were a large group and the facilities very easily accommodated us!
There is a grounds keeper who makes sure you have everything you need and is just so kind and polite!
The view in the evening and at night is absolutely breathtaking! Honestly I cannot imagine a more beautiful place to stay. Our group will definitely be staying here next summer when we return to Austin! There was not one negative thing I can say about the property or owner. Every dealing we had was just wonderful!!!
This is an awesome place for a large gathering. It has five separate and spacious units, some with lofts and lots of beds for large groups or families. A lovely country setting close to Austin. There is a road down to the Colorado River which borders the property. The view from the grounds is wonderful with lots of outdoor furniture to sit and enjoy the view over the tops of a large Pecan Grove and the city scape of Austin in the distance. There is a large fire pit as well as a gas grill and a large covered area for outdoor enjoyment. I would love to plan a family reunion here!
Antonio is a very , sociable communicative friendly person
He and his nice family spent some days with us and we felt them like old friends.
Thank you for your generosity and allowing my family to stay in your place. It is heaven in Italy.
