At 1050 square feet this first floor 1 bedroom is spacious! An easy walk to restaurants, coffee shops, live music venues and all that makes Austin special.

Awesome Place to Stay! Close to everything!

We stayed here on a spontaneous trip to Austin with our 2 kids under the age of three. It worked really well for us and sure beat staying in a hotel. I loved all the big windows and landscaping! Felt like we were in a tree house. The pictures definitely don't do it justice. The location was perfect for us. Really close to great local restaurants and parks. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

The Perfect Austin Rental

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 6, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Our small family just returned from the Wren's Nest and we absolutely hated to leave it. The rental is extremely spacious for a small family or couple. We found it spotless and with every extra you could possibly need (pillows and blankets, board games, kitchen items, kids' movies). The king mattress was extremely comfortable and our daughter loved the pull-out couch. There is so much natural light, yet you have complete privacy with the lovely trees and bamboo outside.

The location cannot be emphasized enough - a short walk to Barton Springs and Zilker Park, Austin Java, Flip Happy Crepes, and Juiceland. South Congress and downtown are a 5 minute drive. We could have easily stayed another week. From this home base you can be as active as you please or set out on foot and just explore the beautiful surroundings and wonderful eateries close by.

Customer service was responsive without being intrusive. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others. Pictures do not do it justice - especially in terms of space. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Owner's Response: Thank You! We hope that you get to visit Austin again!

AMAZING HOUSE

This house was PERFECT.Amanda was such a pleasure to coordinate with. Spoke to me multiple times on the phone and provided really clear directions to her home. Once my friends and I got there we had such an amazing time. She had everything we could have needed- toiletries, coffee and coffee pot, tons of towels, blankets, etc. The neighborhood was gorgeous, on top of Zilker park and Barton Springs and a quick bike ride to downtown. We had the best time and can't wait to stay at Amanda's again.

A Very Special Stay at the Wren's Nest

A Very Special Stay at the Wren's Nest
  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed temporary housing in Austin for two months for work, during which time I was due to deliver our first child. From the moment I contacted the owner about staying at the Wren's Nest with our special circumstances, I knew it was a perfect fit. The owners are kind, attentive and also very respectful of privacy. The space is the lower level of their home, but completely separate from their living quarters. There is no sound bleed from upstairs.

The setting is gorgeous and very private. All of the windows look out on trees and bamboo. The kitchen has floor to ceiling windows, and you get a great view of all of the birds, squirrels and other creatures scurrying about.

The heating and cooling system works beautifully and you have full control of it. The floors and carpeting is clean, as is the furniture and appliances. Tons of countertop space in the kitchen. The fridge (on the small side), dishwasher, stove, oven, water pressure and water temperatures are all in working order. Lots of kitchen gadgets and utensils, and the dish ware and glasses are great.

The tv and DVD player work great. Antenna TV only, no cable. Wonderful washer and dryer in the unit.

The bedroom is HUGE, and the king bed is very comfortable. Ample supply of linens and towels. Ample closet space, although no dressers or drawers. Two sinks in the bathroom, lots of counter space. Great water pressure in the shower and the temperature is easily controlled.

A beautiful patio right outside the door, and we grilled out many times.

An easy walk to the stunning trail that goes along Lady Bird Lake and easy access to the magical Barton Springs Pool.

It felt so right bringing a brand new baby into our "home" even though at that point we only had a couple of weeks left on the lease.

Highly recommended!

A bit of paradise

I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay while visiting Austin. The house is beautiful, built on a slanted hill by a very clever architect, and surrounded by wonderful plants and even a waterfall along the edge when it rains. It's located in an attractive neighborhood close to Zilker Park and yet minutes from downtown. It was such a pleasure to come home to the quiet after a busy day. There's everything you could want in the place: a friendly welcoming host, a well-stocked kitchen, lots of extra towels and toiletries, comfortable furniture and, of course, great views from all the windows. My husband and I spent a week here and would recommend it to anyone.
Owner's Response: Thank You! We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay!
