5 of 5 stars Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I visit Austin several times a year and usually stay with my daughter and her fiance. My husband and I decided to book the Wren's Nest over the 4th of July holiday and my daughter and her fiance stayed with us. The minute we walked in, I loved it. It was almost like being outdoors inside the house and for me that is a huge plus! Very nicely decorated and had a very open feel with a beautiful view of the trees. We enjoyed our mornings sitting in the landscaped courtyard having coffee and were even visited by an armadillo who didn't seem to be bothered by us. Very nice family holiday. Hope to stay here again soon.


Management response:

Thanks for your stay! We've had five baby armadillos around this spring, we're glad that you saw one and hope that you stay again soon. more

This is the lower level of a house in Austin, very conveniently and attractively located and very nicely appointed. We only stayed for two nights, and one night was pretty rainy, but I wish we could have stayed in Austin longer. This condo is right across the street from Zilker Park. The owner lives upstairs, and it's clear to me that she takes a lot of pride in her home. The house is situated so that it faces out on some trees on a steep incline; you feel much more secluded than you actually are. If it hadn't rained our second night there we would have grilled out in the nice little courtyard, but fortunately the inside has lots of reading materials and a TV with several DVDs. The unit also has a bunch of appliances available which make staying there so easy: washer/dryer, dishwasher, toaster, etc. We traveled with out little one year-old and put her on the day bed. I highly recommend. more

Management response:

Thanks! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay! more
