Stay in the heart of downtown! Enjoy 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, a balcony, and all of the amenities you need just minutes from all of the action Austin has to offer. Walk to everything, or use our private deeded parking.
The Austin Westminster is the perfect downtown poolside getaway for two couples or a small group of friends who want to stay together and enjoy the extra amenities that you cannot get at a hotel. With 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms (that functions as 2 bathrooms), a full kitchen, and a balcony with a view facing south, this condo provides you with everything you need for an amazing visit in Austin.
**Please note that we have added a high definition flat screen television above the fireplace that is not featured in the photos.
Located just one block away from the Austin Convention Center, two blocks away from the world famous 6th Street and the Warehouse District, and a small number of blocks away from every other downtown attraction including hundreds of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, lounges, nightclubs, and live music venues. The town lake walking/jogging trail is just a few blocks away, there is a yoga studio (Wanderlust) just across the street. Further, Starbucks is less than a block from the front door, as is an Uncle Julio's Mexican Food restaurant.
Arrangements for a temporary gym membership can be arranged, with several options including one that is two blocks away.
This 900+ square foot unit features accommodations for up to 6 guests (two queen beds and a queen-sized air mattress), central air and heat, a full-sized stackable washer and dryer, a small covered balcony, free cable television, free wireless internet access, wood burning fireplace, and plush furnishings. With granite counter tops, renovated kitchen and bathrooms, flat screen televisions mounted on the walls, and convenient access to the pool, every detail has been considered to make your stay a pleasant one.
A full kitchen comes equipped with an oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and all of the utensils you need to cook your favorite meals. However, there are so many dining options within a few blocks, you may never use it. A few nearby options include: Fleming's Steakhouse, Fogo de Chao, Piranha Sushi, Vince Young Steakhouse, Backspace, PF Changs, 200 Congress, La Condessa, Lamberts, Swift's Attic, Champions Sports Bar, Parkside, Eddie V's, The Onion, Swift's Attic, La Condessa, Trace, Lambert's, and many more...
A wet bar comes stocked with glassware, a blender, and all of the bar tools you will need to fix your favorite cocktails while visiting. Just add liquor and mixers and you are all set. The closest liquor store is 2 blocks away.
You will also receive access to free private gated parking for one car (plus a motorcycle or scooter), if you need it. Since you can walk to everything, you might consider taking the Airport Flyer from Austin Bergstrom International for $1 per person. It picks up and drops off in front of the building every 30 minutes, and will save you the hassle and expense of a rental car or taxi.
There is also an outdoor pool area, and one of the most lively neighborhoods in ATX! If you need assistance with tours, transportation services, or anything else, we are here to help.
Guests will have access to the condo complex, the condo, the secured parking area, the pool area, and the best of downtown Austin.
Interaction with Guests
I like to interact with my guests as much or as little as they would like. I am always available (24/7) to answer questions via email, text, or phone, and I enjoy meeting many of my guests. However, I am also very respectful, and allow my guests to determine how much interaction they would like to have. Ever since I setup automatic door locks, there are some guests that I have not ever met in person. Whatever works best for the guest, works fine for me.
I love that the downtown neighborhood is so vibrant, and provides the ability to walk to the best restaurants, bars, shopping, and nightlife in Austin. The Railyard is in a unique location that is hard to beat. I also appreciate the convenient access to Town Lake for hiking and biking trails, among other things.
In addition to the Airport Flyer that I already mentioned, there are also pedicabs, taxi cabs, light rail, horse-drawn carriages, limousines, and other forms of public transportation within a block that can be easily accessed.
Other Things to Note
If you are interested in hosting an even larger group, please note that I own and manage a large number of units in the same building complex, as well as some nearby houses. I am happy to host large groups for weddings, convention center trade shows, and other events in Austin.
Check-in is 3pm. Check-out is 11am. These times can be flexible, but we will need to communicate in advance so I can plan accordingly.
All guests must abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the condominium complex pertaining to noise, trash, and smoking violations, etc. Any fines incurred will be the responsibility of the tenant. Be advised that noise violations start at $250 per occurrence, and quickly escalate to $500 and higher if the violation persists. These fines can be assessed by the HOA without warning, however, I have never heard of a warning not being issued by a neighbor in advance. If somebody asks you to keep it down, please immediately accommodate them. If a fine is assessed, it will be deducted from your security deposit.
Please do not smoke or leave trash outside of the unit in the common areas. Please do not smoke in the unit or an additional $300 cleaning fee will be charged.
Before you leave, please help the housekeeper prepare for the next guests by completing the following:
• Please take all trash out to the dumpster
• Please load all dishes into the dishwasher and run it on the normal cycle.
• Please turn the AC up to 80º F
• Please close all windows and place the keys and clicker on the counter
• Place twist the handle lock on the front door and leave the condo secured
Place was as described and very convenient for getting around. Only a block and a half from Congress Ave. Awesome that a bus from the airport can bring you almost to the doorsteps. FYI, the fare is $1.75, and they do not give change. Many good eats nearby and dirty 6th St is only a couple short blocks up. Very easy to get in and out of the building and room as you just need to remember the codes. Everything inside worked - had no issues. All modern appliances. Beds were comfortable. We were fine with limited interaction with Ryan. We did ask for a late checkout, and he/mgmt responded immediately and said it was ok. Would definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Austin.
Ryan and his colleagues are very friendly, communicative, helpful and responsive people. We enjoyed our week staying in this appartment which we can absolutely recommend. Very good location, too.(Downtown, 2 minutes to 6th street, 2 minutes to the airport bus.)
Ryan's place was absolutely amazing. It looked just as great as the picture and showed. He responded to every question I had very quickly. The location of the condo could not have been better we were walking distance from great places to eat and drink. Not to mention a great grocery store less than a block away. I will be looking to book with Ryan again on my next trip to Austin.
Four friends and I stayed at Ryan's property over the New Year holiday. We were in town for a wedding and were very happy we decided to stay here.
The location is perfect - right in the middle of downtown Austin and within walking distance to nearly everything: bars, restaurants, coffee shops, etc.
The house itself is great. We had five people and we fit very comfortably with one person sleeping on the air mattress in the living room. The keyless security was extremely convenient and being inside the complex made it feel even more secure.
On top of that, Ryan and his team were extremely communicative and helpful. Ryan let me ship a dress I rented to his office and he had a courier run it over to the apartment when it arrived. It was waiting for me at the apartment when I walked in. I can not thank him enough for being so helpful!
We had two frustrations during our stay. First, was the poor WiFi connection. We are pretty tech savvy people and followed the instructions, but were not able to get a good connection the entire stay. My boyfriend had to do work while on the trip and ended up having to leave and go to the nearby starbucks to do so.
Second, and this isn't such a big deal but more of a heads up, the acoustics in the house are not great (thin walls and windows) so if you're sharing the house and looking for a lot of relaxation, this is probably not the place for you.
Overall it was a great stay and we would definitely rent from Ryan again!
Completely seamless experience, great place, great spot, great price, great host. I travel to Austin 3 or 4 times per year, Ryan's place is my new go to!
The apartment was perfect - exactly as advertised. The location couldn't be better. Check in / out was very simple and flexible on timing. The only warning is that there was no dedicated parking spot and parking is tough in that area.
Thank you for the review, as well as the emails we exchanged today in regards to this review. I apologize that you were not clear on your assigned parking space, but I am glad that you were able to park without issue. In the future, we are here to help if there is ever any confusion. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and I hope you will come back again soon.
We actually didn't stay in this rental, as there was damage from a flood in the apartment above, and we stayed in another property - The Speakeasy. We found out about the change a 1+ week in advance, so it wasn't a bother.
The new apartment was in the building next door and had the same amenities as this original place. It was very nice, well-appointed, clean and stocked with the basic supplies (linens, towels, shampoo/conditioner, body wash, plates, glassware, cutlery, pots and pans and even a keurig w/ k-cups!). It was perfect for our week in Austin for the F1 race. Having the full kitchen also saved us a lot of money from having to eat out at every meal, and when you are spending $12 for a taco at COTA, you can use all the savings you can get.
The area around the rental is really great for walking almost everywhere - 6th Street, SoCo, Whole Foods, etc. We only used a pedicab once (other than the shuttle to/from the airport and COTA) and that was more for the experience than the need. For food places, I recommend The Backspace for dinner (recommendation from Ryan's area guide - thanks!).
Also, of note, you can hear the goings-on of people and cars on 4th street, so bring ear plugs or use a white noise app on your phone if you are a light sleeper. Or, if you are utilizing only one bedroom, I recommend sleeping in the back bedroom, which doesn't face the street.
Ryan and Thomas, his associate, were great hosts. Very prompt and detailed with communications. We would definitely book again with Ryan!

I have been in Austin since 1994. As much as I love the city, I also enjoy traveling and photographing vacation destinations and tourist attractions around the world. As a registered travel agent, I am able to work while I enjoy tours and activities in places like London, Paris, Rome, New York, San Francisco, and Hawaii, to name a few.
I have always wanted to own/operate a hotel. That has been a passion of mine since I was a child. For that reason, I enjoy having guests staying in my rental properties, and I want to provide so much more than just a place to stay. My goal is to create a memorable experience for my guests. I want my guests to know that not only does Austin deliver a good time, but that this home away from home is waiting for you. With my connections in the travel industry, and tenure in the city, I strive to provide a level of service you will not find with other rental managers.
Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like. I enjoy talking about Austin and the property, so I welcome you to communicate with me. I am here to help, and your good time is my priority.
