About NEST Vacation Rentals -- Luxury Properties

Who We Are.

Over the years, NEST has quietly become the go to leader for connecting the most discerning guests with luxury vacation rental homes. Founded on the promise of excellent service and luxury surroundings, NEST manages Austin's finest and most exclusive homes available for short-term rental. NEST's concept and unique approach to home rentals can only be found in the management of the world's finest boutique hotels. Our process is designed to delight each and every guest by delivering a unique and memorable experience.

It all began in 2000, when Owner, Tracey Anderson, purchased her first rental property in downtown Austin. That single purchase inspired what has now become a full-service property management company for hand-curated vacation homes. Tracey's passion for interior design has ensured guests are delighted with the luxurious touches found in every home in the portfolio, delivering the perfect combination of comfort, luxury and amenities.

By developing a reputation for excellent service and well-appointed accommodations, Nest Vacation Rentals has expanded to include homes located in downtown Austin, the SoCo District, luxury homes in the upscale Westlake area of downtown, and a stunner in the Round Top/La Grange area, each with its own signature design, atmosphere and décor.

Our goal is never to be the largest management company in Austin. Instead, we focus on helping our guests realize their own perfect retreat—one unique vacation at a time.

How We Are Different.

Each home represented can only be approved through our thoughtful selection process. This process insures our homes meet NEST's uncompromising standards. This selection process separates NEST luxury homes from other vacation rental properties. Tight and uncompromising controls give our guests the quality, confidence, comfort and consistent experience they expect from all of our homes. NEST's guests and owners appreciate the high quality of amenities, concierge services and the true attention missing in today's vacation property experiences. If you and your group are looking for an exceptional level of quality and experience in a vacation rental, we invite you to visit our home collection.

We look forward to delighting you with memories to last a lifetime.

An Austin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a getaway close to downtown Austin, look no further. This place has everything you need. A sprawling ranch with nice rooms, nice bathrooms, a great kitchen, a great pool, and a hottub to soak away any aches and pains from the night before. Tracy and her team were super accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. Located about 15 minutes outside downtown Austin, this place was the perfect blend of proximity to explore downtown and having everything to justify getting away from it all to simply relax. It even has a smoker, which we did not get to use, but I cant wait to return to try it out.

Fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Came with a group of 17 people on a weekend work retreat. Every person raved about the house. Everything was as advertised if not better. I would absolutely recommend this to a large group of travelers.

The outside: The pool/spa was a huge crowd pleaser. Water was clean, fountains and the outdoor TV provided a nice touch. Came equipped with a grill and a smoker which made for some great barbecuing. The backyard area was bigger than expected and came with hammocks and picnic tables.

The inside: Very modern. Comfortably fit all 17 of us. Spacious living room and kitchen area. Kitchen was fully stocked with all of the supplies one would need and the two additional fridges/freezers came in super handy. Bathrooms were neat and tidy.

Customer service: Excellent. Manager responded to all of my questions within 30 minutes of sending and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed.

Perfect Large Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was truly exactly what we wanted. Large home, lots of beds, open floor plan where everyone could spread out in different living areas yet still see and talk to each other from different rooms. The outdoor area is WHY we chose this home over others---it is enormous. The pool and hot tub are both HUGE and the yard has enormous shade trees with picnic table, party lights, hammocks, corn hole and 2 grills that allowed us to just relax and truly enjoy ourselves on the day we didn't have plans. We will return to this home next time we are in Austin!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to host friends for a weekend get-together. The house is wonderfully appointed and the homeowners were a pleasure to work with, very responsive and accommodating. The outside pool and hot tub area are fantastic, we had plenty of space for everyone and the kitchen was well-stocked with every pot and pan we could need. To top it off it is just a short ride to and from Rainey Street for drinks and dinner. We loved Austin and look forward to returning soon!

Such an Enjoyable trip

  • 5 of 5

A small group of us stayed here for 3 nights. What a perfect spot for a group. We traveled here to watch the Longhorns game and visit the City of Austin. The location could not have been better. We enjoyed quiet nights outside of the city and when we were looking for more, it was a simple cab ride into the city for the restaurants and the game.

The staff at Nest were attentive to all of our needs and made themselves accessible at all times. The house was impeccable clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful pool and hot tub.

If I were returning to Austin, I would definitely be back to this property.
