About Anthony Hanseder

World traveler and adventurer. Been to over 80 countries, and chances are that if you stay at my place while I'm not home, I'll be in some foreign land, possible via motorcycle.

Stayed in countless lodgings, both very high and very low-end. This home is my base camp, as I love the Bay Area and Los Gatos, with its wonderful restaurants and proximity to the ocean, San Francisco, and so much more!

Anthony Hanseder purchased this house in 2011

Why Anthony Hanseder chose Los Gatos

Location to the wonderful town of Los Gatos, plus walking distance to hiking trails & a world-class winery (Testarossa).

What makes this house unique

From the moment I walked into the house and said 'wow' (as most people do when they enter), I was smitten. I love the openness, the connection with nature, and the diversity of areas to enjoy in this home. The architect (Lundberg) did an amazing job with this design. Enjoy it as I do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rob and his friends were simply perfect guests. Communications was quick and I was very thankful to see how well the house looked upon my return. They are welcome back anytime!

A wonderful house for a great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and spacious. It’s is completely clean and modern. There are large family rooms and a truly excellent kitchen.

The owner is very thoughtful and thorough. There were lots of surprising little touches that made us feel welcome.

The location in Los Gatos is great. We took scenic walks and spent a fun afternoon at the Testarossa Winery.

I highly recommend this property for a family - and we hope to come back.

Beautiful Home in LG Hills-Great For Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

Tony's house was perfect for our family group of 6. We were in town for a wedding at Testarossa Winery. His home was about 10 minute drive from the winery, and a very lovely walk by foot via the quiet neighborhood streets and fire-road. Lots of natural light and garden-like environments outdoors. The beds were comfortable and the common rooms generous in size to allow for comfortable downtime between events.

Delightful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! Fabulous floor plan for our family to enjoy being together and also have space apart. Los Gatos is a charming town. Amenities are first class. Next time we are in the area we would hope to stay here again.

Beautiful home, lovely location

  • 4 of 5

We recently visited with our grown up children and their partners for a long weekend. The house was spacious for the 6 of us and the pictures depict this lovely home accurately. The winery and town within walking distance are nice bonuses.

We chose this house for its accommodations, location and amenities of air conditioning and bbq. These last 2 pieces did not live up to our expectations, unfortunately. The homeowner controls the thermostat remotely, putting a cooling limit of 76 degrees on it. This weekend outside temps were in the upper 90s, so this did not cool the house sufficiently. Although he did lower the setting for us for brief times after we texted, the house was never fully comfortable for us, especially sleeping at night. In fact it often registered 83 degrees as we headed for bed. In addition, the electric grill on the top patio is much too small (more like a George Forman) and the gas grill we found down on the lower patio was in poor condition, although after cleaning we did use it successfully. The walk to that lower grill gave us all a covering of sticky, sharp spores.

For this reason we can only give what should be a 5 star property 4 stars. I hope for future guests the larger grill is in better shape and that guests can be given control of the thermostat to be comfortable.

Overall, the homeowner is reliable and easy to work with and this was a nice get-away for our family. We do recommend this property.

Owner's Response: This was the first review out of 22 that wasn't 5-stars, and the only one that had issues with the air conditioning. Jordan and his party were great guests but this topic needs some reflection... The house has a Nest (smart thermostat) unit, which automatically turns the heat/AC on/off depending on preset levels, and also if anyone is home. I always try to accommodate special needs, and had proactively told Jordan (as he mentioned) that I could remotely turn on the AC if they were going to be out all day. He did that once, but not another time. So apparently the house was hot when they returned. As with any large space, it takes a while to lower the temp to a comfortable level. Setting the Nest to a lower temp does not cool the house faster. Moving forward I will work with guests to set a limit so that the house stays reasonable even if guests are out for the day.

Anthony is an incredible host who goes above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless, the neighborhood was quiet and the small town of Los Gatos had an incredible number of good places to eat. I would jump at the opportunity to stay at the house again.
