Birdie's Nest

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying how easy Austin & Lee were to work with. Not only did we receive explicit details about the house & its amenities, we also were provided with area info. on restaurants, etc. Each time I emailed them I received a very prompt & friendly response. About the is great. We had 6 adults staying for our week in Orange Beach. We found the house exactly as the description portrays. The small Tannin neighborhood's brick-paved streets are lined with lovely homes. The home is very comfortable and has everything you need to make your stay memorable. The security door lock are very easy to operate, even for kids, so no keys are necessary. The appliances & kitchen utensils are nice & well stocked. Living room with great cable TV and a nice screened in porch off the living room/kitchen is perfect for morning coffee or extra dining. Each bedroom has its own TV and the master BR downstairs has a nice bath of its own. The 2 upstairs BR's share a bath. The neighborhood is centrally located with grocery shopping & restaurants nearby. Austin & Lee also provide a Weber kettle grill, a wagon to haul items to the beach, and even boogie boards/ beach chairs, & beach toys for the kids. There is even a shower and water hose at the back of the carport to wash away the sand after returning from a day at the beach. The neighborhood has its own beach access across from the east entry. You can walk to the beach or better yet, Drive your party down to the access and drop off. We were there the week of the 4th and the beach area was perfect. It wasn't crowded at all, as only Tannin guests/residents were occupying that area of the beach. The neighborhood also has a pool which you can see fhe entrance from the house's front porch. There are 25-30 chairs/loungers at the pool and is a great place to relax or get in a few laps. We loved our stay at Birdies Nest and give it 5 stars. great home, great owners.

Beautiful Home with Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful beach week at Birdie’s nest. Austin and Lee were very helpful and attentive when needed. House was well kept and nicely appointed. We had everything we needed. Beach was a very short walk away. Our very favorite part of Birdie’s Nest was the beautiful bike paths that connect from right in the neighborhood. We biked to Southern Grind coffee shop every morning. We also saw baby alligators sunning themselves along the path. We played in several parks and rested at beautiful little areas along the paths. We also biked to Starbucks and Subway - all while going nowhere near the busy road. If you have kids that will be biking or like to bike yourselves, this house is perfect for you. It was too chilly for us to use the pool, but it was a stones throw away and looked very nice. We will definitely be staying at Birdie’s Nest next time we are in Orange Beach!

Lovely home in charming neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The home was just perfect for our family - including 2 teenage boys who were thrilled to have their own rooms and the whole 2nd floor to themselves! We loved the screened in porch for morning coffee or a mimosa. Great location and we so appreciated Lee and Austin's recommendations for meals and things to do! LOVE The Gulf restaurant and had a blast parasailing! Owners are awesome to work with and would highly recommend visiting this lovely home in Orange Beach. Our first time here- we'll definitely be back!!

R stay at Birdies Nest

  • 5 of 5

We were down for volleyball tournament at GSHS and Orange County Rec Center and the House was in the middle of both so only had to drive a few minutes each way so I loved that. Loved the house hope to rent again we like that it is close to the pool. We couldn’t find beach access so drove down road a mile and paid to park for beach access. We ate at Oyster House x 2 we loved the crab legs and crab fingers so good but don’t order the fried green tomatoes or the stuffed crabs or the crab cakes they were awful so was key lime pie. Didn’t eat anywhere else but at house we loved the house and if I had a issue was able to text owners and got quick responses so felt very reassured. Thanks to them ! Would of loved to had r bikes to ride around neighborhood such a cute place or a golf cart to ride to the beach lol.

LOVED every minute...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this past month and absolutely loved our stay. We had six adults and two kids but my two boys are adult size so we did bring down an air mattress for one of them to sleep on. There was plenty of room for this in the living area. We cooked breakfast each day and dinner a number of nights, plus grilled. The house had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the showers, air/conditioning - everything worked great. Loved having two full bathrooms. We enjoyed being off the beaten path and not right on the beach. Truth be told, my boys were both stung by jellyfish early in the week and didn't care much to go back to the beach. We went to the pool every day and anyone we encountered was so nice. (I think the jellyfish were just bad the week we were there!) This location is great too because Wal-Mart and the other stores are just a short distance down the road. We will definitely stay here again!

Great property and great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean and updated three bedroom, two bath with great access to the pool. We've stayed here several years and the owners are very easy to work with. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach attractions are all a close drive away. We'll continue renting here for years to come.
