Le logement

This luxurious and private suite is designed to suit all travelers but especially notable for birders and nature enthusiast.

The Birds Nest room includes full bath, queen size bed, comfy sitting area and storage. With it's own private entrance separate from the main house, this room offers the utmost in privacy. Enjoy 3 gorgeous patios, large open windows and beautiful details.

We have two other bedrooms in the house and still off of this master patio, please ask if you have a large party.

The common area has everything you could possible need for a long or short stay including a fridge and kitchen cupboard for food storage, coffee and tea service and toaster.

Located in the heart of the McAllen, this full acre property is surrounded by a brick fence making it a lovely oasis in the city.

We are birders and our neighborhood is often on the birding festival tours with lots of mature trees and natural habitat. We have a bird condo on the property (essentially a dead palm with holes bored out for birds' nests) that houses innumerable bird species including -- swear it -- a pair of Red-crowned Parrots (seasonal), not Parakeets. Birders need not venture far to get life lists. My official Backyard Bird Count currently stands at over 30 different species; some of which are South Texas specialities like Green Parakeets, Kiskadee, Green Jay and Chachalaca.

We have a 3" Celestron Telescope that we are happy to share with guest for some close up birding and if you are lucky and we get clear skies, we might be able to do some deep sky observing.

Birding festivals are ongoing here; South Texas is the New Birding Mecca. With massive migratory periods. We also have butterfly and dragonfly festivals throughout the year, plus The World Birding Center with excellently managed nature centers too numerous to list. Your host knows them all.

Winter is simply stunning here! McAllen is close to South Padre Island, for excellent fishing, kite boarding and more. Many well known ranches in South Texas offer private day trips for phtographers. Our area is a vibrant, growing metro with access to many activities and shopping galore.

Don't waste your time looking anywhere else, this is THE PLACE you want to be!

Private, immaculate one-acre estate. Gated entry, spectacular grounds and landscaping. Private room (a little on the smallish side for size but very comfortable) detached from the main home by a breeze-way with breakfast treats each day and a refrigerator for our use. Could not have asked for more congenial hosts. AirBnB pros!

We loved our stay at the Bird's Nest. The room was very nice, clean, with a comfy bed. We enjoyed the outside patio and another sitting area with a view of a beautiful water feature. Birds including Green Jay and Plain Chachalaca (specialties of the Rio Grande Valley), visited the fountain and feeders each morning. Rhonda and Oscar were great hosts - very friendly and attentive! We hope to return on our next birding adventure.

This is a quiet room, with just enough privacy and even for a non-birder like me, inspiring for the beauty and yes, the birds! Also, quiet and secluded once inside, it has a close and accessible location for everything else.

Rhonda and Oscar were marvelous hosts. I booked my stay very last-minute, and they couldn't have been more accommodating. This was one of the best AirBnB experiences I've had, and I'll surely stay here again when I return to McAllen for work. Their property is an oasis, and the room is so comfortable and pleasant -- and extremely clean. I'd recommend this apartment to anybody! Furthermore, Rhonda and Oscar are very hospitable and inviting hosts -- make you feel like you're right at home. Thanks, Rhonda and Oscar!

The Bird's Nest is a wonderful oasis in the city. Everything about my stay was perfect. The room is spacious and private and the bed was very comfortable. The room is tastefully appointed and if you are a birder, you will enjoy the special avian touches. The private bath has a nice shower with great water pressure. A continental breakfast was provided each morning and the coffee was delicious. Drinks were available anytime from the antique fridge and the water carafe was filled with pure fresh water each day. My host was welcoming and very helpful in answering my questions. I highly recommend the Bird's Nest to anyone visiting the Valley. It is in a super location, easy to get to and very safe. I enjoyed sitting on the patio, eating my breakfast and watching the birds flit around the feeders and fountains. It made for a truly memorable vacation.

Happily married for 20+ years and looking forward to getting my last child (1 of 3) out of the house and educated soon.

I, too, love to travel and adore all things written, painted, or performed. I am a long time volunteer and have a broad professional background including marketing and public relations.

My husband -- attorney -- and I have lived in deep south Texas for 20 years. Our area is a Mecca for birders and wildlife/outdoor enthusiast. We are within minutes of multiple US/Mexico border crossing and are the perfect location for traveling into Mexico.
