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 look forward to creating many memories at Birdie's Nest and hope their guests enjoy their time there as well!

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 house...it 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.

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.

Father's Day weekend for the books!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Ive been burned in the past with other beach rental properties and this was a TREMENDOUS breathe of fresh air!

The owners made sure every detail was taken care of to ensure me and my family had a nice relaxing time...Thats the way it should be at the beach!

The pics on the website are great, but they do not do this beautiful beach home any justice.. Nice open rooms--decorated very tastefully.. Large kitchen perfect for making and sharing meals.. big master suite and bathroom.. gave us plenty of room to spread out.... Oh, and the olympic size pool was not to bad either.l!

If you cant tell, we really enjoyed our stay here. This beach home really made my Father's Day weekend special and we have already booked our stay for the next year.

Thanks Lee and Austin Boyd!

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.
