About Tony

I'm a professional artist and childrens book illustrator who has run an art studio in Austin for 15 years. My partner Elise is a violinist for the Austin Symphony, so the house is very creative and artistic.

Tony purchased this house in 2000

Why Tony chose Austin

Beautiful home in a safe, friendly neighborhood, close to downtown yet far enough away to be quiet and not have some of the other downtown issues. We strive to do everything in our power to make sure you have a wonderful experience, whatever that may be for you.

What makes this house unique

The creative flourishes are the houses main attraction. Austin is known for being quirky, creative and artistic. This home truly gives you that experience. Every room is filled with adventure and surprises.

Quirky and interesting house

  • 3 of 5

Our family stayed over Thanksgiving weekend 2016 for 3 nights. Tony was very welcoming and helpful. Comfy beds. Descriptions need to be updated because there is only one outbuilding available, but he added a bed inside so as to still accommodate the same number of guests. Fire table was broken, which was disappointing since the weather was nice and the rest of the yard is so fun. House needs a good cleaning and dusting, so I beg to differ with his "spotlessly clean" description!! Note that one bathroom is only accessible from the EXTERIOR of the house, and guests must walk through the other bathroom to access one of the bedrooms--was a bit awkward to be trapped in the bedroom while someone was using the bathroom--the other option was to use a back door and walk around the house and come in the front door!! There is not enough seating to accommodate the large number that can sleep here--there are only 4 stools at a counter area, so we had to eat with plates on laps for our meals. Not a problem, but I just assumed that there would be seating for all of us. "Sci-fi artwork" means nudity, just in case that's not clear to you. Great location and quiet neighborhood. We were charged an extra fee for a holiday stay, which I don't see listed on the ad but was made clear when emailing back and forth when finalizing details, and he was very kind to let us in a few hours early since we arrived on Thanksgiving day.

Amazing Back yard!

  • 5 of 5

The inside of the house is very artsy and unique. The back yard is very impressive. I wish we would have went in the spring or fall to have been able to take more advantage of the saucy back yard. Shelly was pretty cool to watch roam the yard and to feed. Tony was an awesome host!

Clean, beautiful, great location, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a bachelor party at this property and it was great! Tony is extremely accommodating and went out of his way to make sure we felt at home and were taken care of. The property is very well maintained and is in a great area of Austin. There is plenty of space, both inside and outside, for a large group. For the price and area, it's absolutely unbeatable. I highly recommend booking.

Friend reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great! Tony is very nice and accommodating, and the property has a lot of fun details. The ten of us had plenty of room and I definitely recommend staying here. Shelley the tortoise was also one of our favorite additions to our stay- she is an 100lb tortoise who roams the back yard! Thanks Tony for a good experience!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Tony was a fantastic host and we had a great time at his house.

The house is cozy and there is plenty of room to spread out. The backyard offers tons of amenities too so if you like sitting outside this is definitely a place worth checking out.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We held a bachelorette party at Tony's house. The house was perfect for the group of 10 and Tony was very friendly. The backyard is very nice, and there are plenty of beds.
