2br/1ba guest cottage near South Congress Ave. Quiet, cozy, comfortable and a great value! Beautiful tree top views from front porch.

This perfectly feathered Nest is centrally located and close to everything great about Austin. You can walk to South Congress, Riverside Drive and Stacey Park with easy access to I-35. Zilker is a short cab ride away.

Small and cozy, it’s the perfect place to rest your head after a busy day in our city. It sits high up above the street and has a long view to the hills west of town. Two bedrooms, one Queen and one Full size bed with a nicely remodeled bath and a kitchen with all the essentials including a washer & dryer. There’s a table with an umbrella out back to have coffee al fresco and it’s so quiet you’d never know how close you are to downtown.

You share a wall with the owners (a lovely couple), who live on site.

The Nest is only a block away from Little Stacy Park (with an amazing playground under huge oaks and a spring fed toddler pool) as well as the Stacy Park greenbelt, beloved by the Travis Heights neighborhood for its quiet walking/running path. Big Stacy Pool is nearby, a full size spring fed pool that is free to the public, open year round and heated in the winter.

At this time, this property does not allow pets. If you are in need of a pet friendly property please let us know and we'd be happy to make some recommendations.

A courtesy high chair and Pack & Play are available upon request

My husband and I stayed at The Nest for several days. It was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed our time there. Hurricane Harvey hit Austin during our stay, and Emerson made sure we had safety information. Highly recommended.

In few words all I can say is the rental is super clean and neat. Exactly as in the pictures. Comfortable beds and coach. Quiet and perfect for relaxing. Walking distance (13 min) from Congress Ave. and located in a great spot of the city to get by car (5-7 min) or bus to downtown, lady bird lake, and parks. Great neighborhood to take a daily walk. Lots of trees in the neighborhood. I'd suggest to get more pots in the kitchen. We cooked daily and having a variety of pots and pans would be of great help. Brooke, the manager was of great help when contacted. I'd recommend this place and I'd stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

The Nest was a great home for a short trip. It's furnished really really well and in a quaint charming neighborhood, about 10 minutes from soco. the owner, brooke, was very friendly and available when needed. I'll definitely recommend this place to everyone I know, and especially to people who may prefer eating home cooked food (fully equipped kitchen), or looking for a relaxing staycation. Its walking distance to the bike and hike trail of colorado river, and close to soco which has amazing eateries and coffee houses.
