This downtown suite has plenty of space for small groups in the heart of the action. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, there is enough room for 6-8 people. Enjoy a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, updated bathrooms, and comfortable beds.

The Space

Stay in the heart of downtown at the Railyard condos located on 4th Street between San Jacinto and Brazos. Walk to everything, and enjoy all of the amenities that downtown Austin has to offer from this prime location.

Situated one block from the Austin Convention Center, two blocks from the world famous 6th Street and the Warehouse District, and a handful of blocks from every other downtown attraction including hundreds of restaurants, movie theaters, bars, nightclubs, lounges, and live music venues, the location cannot be beat. The town lake walking/jogging trail is just a few blocks away, there is a yoga studio just across the street, Starbucks is 200 feet from the front door, and arrangements can be made for a temporary gym membership two blocks away during your visit, if desired.

This 1,200 square foot unit features accommodations for up to 8 guests (three queen beds and a queen sized air mattress), central air and heat, a full sized stackable washer and dryer, a small covered patio, 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 a fantastic stereo in the living room, every detail has been considered to make your stay a pleasant one.

A full kitchen with oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and all of the tools you need to cook your favorite meals will be included, 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 (email hidden) 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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • The host (Ryan) and the manager (Thomas) were both extremely responsive and efficient. The location is close to everything in downtown Austin and it was easy to walk to where we wanted to go. The condo was spacious and clean, with room for all 3 of us to spread out.

  • This place was exactly what our group of 5 adults were expecting. It's comfortable, clean, and convenient to all the fun in downtown Austin. Also, Ryan was a great host, and very responsive on a Saturday night when we needed some help. I definitely recommend it.

  • The location was very close to the bar scene, and easy to get to from the airport by bus. The condo is clean and spacious with big comfy beds. Ryan was very easy to communicate with. He even helped out with suggestions on things to do during our stay. We needed to check in early and check out late, and Ryan was very accommodating.

  • As always, we enjoyed our stay at the Railyard Oasis. Ryan's properties are always welcoming and provide the perfect setting for both business and leisure travel. This location puts you right in the heard of downtown Austin and will never disappoint you when looking to find a close local hangout.

  • This condo was awesome! Ryan was an amazing host! He was kind enough to come to help us find the garage opener and when he came upon our balloons (among other decorations) he just had a good laugh and allowed us to carry on with our evening. I would definitely recommend the location- it was perfect!
    Over all Austin was a fantastic trip and whenever I make it back, I will certainly try to stay here again.

  • Ryan's place was a dream for a girl's weekend in Austin. The 6 of us felt really comfortable in the spacious condo and the 2 bathrooms were the cherry on top. There were plenty of towels, dinnerware for all of us. The condo is ideally situated; walkable to the bridge for sunset/bat watching, to bars on 6th, good restaurants from upscale to casual, to the CVS and grocery store for essentials, and to coffee shops.

    Ryan was very accommodating in letting us check-in early and the keyless entry was helpful so each of us could come and go as we please. We would not hesitate to stay at this place again. Thanks for everything!

  • My girlfriends and I stayed at this apartment for a weekend trip to Austin. It is perfect for a group since there is a lot more space than you would get with a hotel room (or even two). Perfect location for a quick walk to the 6th street bars, 2nd street shopping, restaurants, Town Lake trail, South Congress strip, etc. We even walked to campus for a concert although that took about 20 minutes. The pool is small but nice and relaxing - just keep in mind that it is in a courtyard so you don't get sun at all hours. Ryan was responsive and accommodating to our late check out. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • My colleagues and I stayed in the Mandarin Suite for a work conference, and it was clean and spacious for 3 adults. It was a great location in downtown Austin, and we enjoyed exploring second street, 6th street and walking to south of congress. Also really close to the running path along the river. The kitchen was stocked nicely which made it easy to eat breakfast there before going to the conference. All in all a great experience!

  • Staying at Ryan's Mandarin Suite was nothing short of perfect. Was my/our groups first AirBnb experience and definitely exceeded expectations. The condo is very spacious and was a very great place to stay with a group rather than a 200 sq ft hotel room. The 3BRs including the living room allow for some "personal" space wihich is rare when traveling with a group.

    The location is ideal for those looking to be downtown, with short walks to the river, many food options, and plenty of Austin night life. We did have a car, but did not need to use it .

    Ryan overall is a very good host, didn't meet him but he provides very detailed instructions making for a easy check in/out and stay. During the stay he was also very responsive to messages with questions and or concerns.

    Would highly recommend this place and definitely would look to stay here or one of Ryan's other places if/when returning to Austin.

About
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.
