My adult son and I stayed at The Nest over the Thanksgiving holiday and I could not have been happier with my choice! The home was in a great location, it was comfortable, peaceful and had every amenity imagininable. It was a nice touch to have spices, coffee, shampoo etc. provided for us on arrival! I would recommend this property in a second to anyone planning a stay in Austin! Brooke and her team at EGP did a fantastic job from start to finish. Thanks - wish I was still there...

A friend and I met in Austin for an extended weekend. For both, it was our first visit to the city. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations! The house and neighborhood were absolutely charming! The home, beds included, was very comfortable and we appreciated that it was exceptionally clean and tidy. We hope to visit again!

My husband and I, along with my sister visiting from Alaska, thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at The Nest. This two bedroom cottage located in Travis Heights could not be in a better location or neighborhood!!! It certainly added to our enjoyment while visiting family in Austin. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.
. Sep 2018
We had a fabulous week long vacation at 'The Nest'. The property is approx 10 minute walk to So. Congress St near Congress Street Cafe, Continental Club and other great restaurants and shops, and well situated to get to other parts of town. Travis Heights is a great area, with well kept homes and parks nearby. The property is actually one half of a house, with its own entrance and patio. Plenty of room for two couples, although only my husband and I were there for the week. It was super clean, with a very comfy queen bed (and we are picky!). TV had a satisfyingly channel selection and DVR accessibility for those who find themselves needing a night in for a change! Plenty of hooks, but we opted to use the 2nd bedroom closet. The management company was very professional and responsive and made our trip planning simple! We would definitely rent'The Nest' again!

We spent 6 comfortable nights at The Nest while visiting our children in Austin. It was comfortable, spotless and well stocked. Having the washer/dryer made it possible to pack light. The neighborhood was great. We will stay there again for sure!
. Sep 2018
This home is wonderful. Great location!! The house was very clean and the kitchen was the best stocked kitchen of any house we have rented. We enjoyed our stay at The Nest!!
. Sep 2018
Travis Heights is my favorite suburb in Austin. We enjoyed how close it was (walking distance!) to famous coffee shops, food trucks, boutiques, and the local market that stocks locally made gourmet ice cream. Close to the Long Center, the Austin Mural, and Alamo movie theaters. Excellent choice for a weekend, we were lucky to stay there a week.
. Sep 2018
Great location in a wonderful neighborhood. It's a nice walk to South Congress with unique shopping, rest., food trucks, music, you name it, it's there! The propery management company was the best I've ever worked with. There web-site made everything very accomadating and easy.
. Sep 2018
The house was wonderful. Booking was easy and management team responded quickly. The location could not be beat. The home is close to everything you could want in Austin and the neighborhood was safe and quiet. The home was clean, easy to access and provided everything. I will be staying here again the next time I'm in Austin.
. Sep 2018
Very pleasant visit in Austin just off South Congress. Our accommodations were clean, quiet and fully outfitted with kitchen, wifi, laundry, and comfortable living and bedrooms. Nice neighborhood within easy walk of S. Congress and Town Lake. Easy check in/out.
. Sep 2018
We had a wonderful stay at The Nest. The property was exactly as shown in the pictures. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. This property even had its own app to get details on the house as well as nearby attractions. The location is great, very easy to get around and centrally located.
. Sep 2018
We really enjoyed staying at The Nest. It was clean, functional, and quiet. The rooms are a good size and the beds are decent. The neighborhood is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch with coffee in the mornings. Easy to get around by Lyft, Uber, or Taxi to all the hot spots in Austin. It is easy to walk to South Congress as well. The unit has a remodeled bathroom and lots of light throughout. The water pressure in the shower is a little restricted, but otherwise this was an excellent place to stay!
. Sep 2018
Everything was just right about this place, from the location to the cleanliness, from the amenities to the sense of being in a home away from home. We hope to return soon!
. Sep 2018
Fantastic location, within walking distance of the Boardwalk and neighborhood park with wading pool. Clean, comfortable accommodations. Looking forward to our next visit.
. Sep 2018
The location was perfect for our trip. Just a few minutes to downtown. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.
. Sep 2018
The Nest was one of the best rentals we've experienced. This place was extremely clean and chock full of amenities unmatched by others. The house rules and instructions were clearly stated and easy to follow. This property was even better in person! Brooke was a good communicator and answered my questions promptly. We especially loved the balcony for its wonderful evening breeze. The location is central to all things Austin and the neighborhood was nice and quiet.
. Sep 2018
This was the perfect location and layout for our three adult group. Close to everything. The neighborhood is excellent. The property was very neat and clean, well supplied, comfortable and had everything we needed (actually more than we ever used!). The remodeled bath is clean and although a bit tight, it worked for us. We would definitely rent again and highly recommend to others!
. Sep 2018
We had an event at the conference center in downtown and needed a place that was close but quiet enough to get the rest we needed. We arrived to a well organized very convenient rental. This timeless home was well decorated and comfortably furnished. Ease of access and additional features of the trip were enhanced by using the phone app. Definitely would stay here again.
. Sep 2018
We loved this home. It is full of charm and we found it to be a peaceful retreat. It is very well stocked. It was nice just to sit and take in the quaint features of the home. It is also immaculate which we very much appreciated. Beds were very comfortable as well. Very pleasant property manager.
. Aug 2018

It was great! The unit has everything you need in a beautiful setting.

The Nest is a very cute property, very quiet, decorated with good taste and well equipped. , The neighborhood is lovely, and very close to south congress area. I got clear instructions to access and the property manager was responsive and very nice. I'm definitely returning for my next stay.
. Aug 2018
The Nest was a perfect spot from which to explore Austin--close to several bus lines and the SoCo music venues. My only complaint is with Emerson Guest Properties. Two e-mails and two phone calls with questions produced NO response. I will not rent a property managed by them again. Plus, cleaners had missed some obvious spots in the kitchen (the counter), and the person who was checking the state of the property before check-in didn't arrive until after the check-in time. We had to clean up.
. Aug 2018
This rental has location, quiet-beautiful neighborhood and well equipped-clean accommodations. The rental was easy to find and access. We walked or biked to all the areas of interest to us.
. Aug 2018
The Nest is a great little home at a perfect location. Very close to attractions, but very quiet and pretty neighborhood. We will definitely come back if we are in Austin.
. Aug 2018
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 South Congress. The manager, 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. It's walking distance to the bike and hike trail of Lady Bird Lake, and close to SOCO which has amazing eateries and coffee houses.
. Aug 2018
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. Brooke, the manager was of great help when contacted. I'd recommend this place and I'd stay here again.
. Aug 2018
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 recommend!
. Aug 2018
Amazing little nest and perfect for my business and leisure needs while in town. The Nest is centrally located, beautiful, clean and safe. I was able to park my rental car right in front of the house without any issues for my entire stay. I have dietary needs so I went to Whole Foods (approx 10 min drive ) to get my groceries and cook for the week. I also discovered a Thoms Market very close to the house where one can find any last minute necessity. I enjoyed Congresss Street for leisurely walks and shopping . I will definitely recommend to others. Thank you for a smooth process for check in and check out and for such detailed instructions and guides.
. Aug 2018
Enjoyed a superb stay at The Nest over a long weekend. Great location in central Austin. Will definitely stay here again. Only small quibble with water pressure in kitchen and bathroom.
. Aug 2018
Excellent location. Quiet hills neighborhood vibe (reminds need me of Hollywood Hills a bit). Place has everything we needed. Would 100% stay again.
. Aug 2018
House was cosy, really well-equipped. We were delighted to find coffee, cream, sugar, and sweetener in the refirgerator. Neighborhood is eclectic, intereting, and great for walking. We'd love to stay here again.
. Aug 2018
Place was perfect for 2-4 people. walking distance to great shops and local restaurants and live music venues! Beautiful neighborhood too
. Aug 2018
We loved staying in this quaint home in a very cute neighborhood. We did a small girls trip in Austin and the home has everything you could need.Great location close to everything...we could walk to South Congress for the shopping and restaurants. Definitely recommend this place for small groups.
. Jul 2018
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay here. It was a very homey vacation rental. We were very relaxed. It was really beautiful walking around the neighborhood with all the old live oak trees. The rental unit itself was very comfortable. We had everything that we needed and the beds were very comfortable. And it was easy walking distance to South Congress,1st Avenue and the hike and bike trail. The Travis Heights neighborhood was very quiet.
. Jul 2018
Simply'lovely!'

This place was very clean and a great location for the activities we had planned for downtown Austin. We arrived at night and they left a couple house lights on for us to make our arrival super cozy. It was well stocked with household items such as plenty of towels, kitchen items, an iron and ironing board. The neighborhood seemed very safe and the neighbors were very friendly as they took their dogs and children in walks in the morning and evenings. It was close to delicious restaurants. We would stay here again if we end up in Austin.
. Jul 2018
We had a great stay. Perfect amount of space for our family (2 little boys). The house was clean and well-equipped. Loved the neighborhood. Close to everything, but still quiet. Host was very responsive to any questions.
