About Austin and Lee Boyd

Austin grew up in a military family and has lived all over the US, but always loved visiting his grandparents who reside on the gulf! His family ended up settling in Huntsville, AL where he attended high school and then went to the University of Alabama. Lee was born and raised in Hoover, AL and attended Auburn University. Any time her family vacationed, it was to beautiful Orange Beach! Austin and Lee married in 2012, and decided to purchase a beach vacation home in 2014 to use for years to come! They currently reside in Vestavia Hills, AL with Austin working in finance and Lee in recruiting. They look forward to creating many memories at Birdie's Nest and hope their guests enjoy their time there as well!

Austin and Lee Boyd purchased this house in 2014

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This home is awesome! Loved the pool, loved the private entrance to the beach, and the owners were great. Communicated with them almost on a daily basis, just because we had gotten close during the booking process and we wanted them to know how much fun we were having. Would definitely rent again. You can't go wrong on this one.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of April when it can be a busy weekend in Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. We found this house to be the best of both worlds. It is very pretty and has a nice big community pool. If you want a quiet lazy day, this house is perfect! It is also close enough to join the fun, depending on your mood for the day. It is lovely with the most beautiful view of nature and has a nice open floor plan. There were a lot of little touches that the owners thought of that made the stay easier/more enjoyable. They had keyless entry, so you don’t have to keep up with a key, which I loved. They provided a list of preferred restaurants to assist you in dining decisions, and several other subtle details. We loved it, and will be back.

This was our second time renting Birdie's Nest as it was just as wonderful as we remembered. The house is just as pictured and very clean. There is enough room in the house for 7 adults to stay comfortably. The openness of the kitchen and living area made it easy to visit with everyone. Walking across to the beach is easy, especially with the all terrain wheelbarrow provided by Austin and Lee. The beach is beautiful and not crowded at all. We had it all to ourselves Saturday. Check in and check out were both seamless and the Boyd's are friendly, responsive hosts. We can't wait to be back!
