The Standard is as centrally located as it gets. Steps from the Austin Convention Center, world famous 6th Street, and Congress Avenue, this space is walkable to everything. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, there is plenty of space for groups.

The Space

The Standard in Austin features 4 bedrooms with space for up to 12 guests. Centrally located in the heart of downtown, you can walk to everything from this condo. On Walk Score, they give this property a perfect score of 100 points. The condo also receives a bike score of 90 and a transit score of 70. Please note that the Airport Flyer will drop you basically at the front door for $1, and runs every 30 minutes or so.

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 unit features accommodations for up to 12 guests (one king, four queen beds, and a queen sized air mattress), central air and heat, a full sized stackable washer and dryer, a small 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 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 two cars (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.

  • This is an awesome spot for a weekend trip with a group. It is central to a lot of great food, bars and six street. There is plenty of space for a big group to spread out. Next time I head back to Austin, I will certainly stay here again.

  • This place was amazing! I came to Austin for my sister's bachelorette with 11 other girls. We fit perfectly! Also,the location was ideal. Everywhere we went was within a 10 to 15 minute walk (6th street and Rainey St as well as a ton of amazing restaurants)
    Ryan was wonderful to work with. He responded to questions in such a timely manner and ensured that we were set with everything we need.
    I totally recommend this place!!!

  • Great experience! Ryan was very responsive and incredibly accommodating when I arrived in town a bit earlier than planned. The location can't be beat - you are within walking distance to hundreds of restaurants and bars. Note - this does mean that it's not totally silent at night. If you're a runner or want some nature time, you're 1/2 mile or less from great running by the river/lake. There is a great little balcony that is made fairly private by tall trees; perfect for reading outside, getting a bit of sun, etc. All but two of the bedrooms are very far from each other, so it's an ideal layout for having a bit of privacy/quiet from your travel party.

  • Ryan was a great host! The place was perfect for 8 girls. The house is in great condition and has enough room for everyone to have their own space. Ryan was very flexible with our check in and check out times which was a great help to us and our varying flight times. It is a perfect location for walking to everything. If there was anything we could not walk to such as the Austin "Welcome to Austin" mural or the Barton Spring Pool the bus was only three blocks away and cost $1.

    Thanks, Michael. My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to come down and meet you and the guys. Next time for sure!

  • Ryan was so helpful, accessible, and accommodating. He helped take care of all the details the day before so that when we arrived, everything was very smooth. The condo was perfect - amazing location, clean, and comfortably slept our group of 10. Everyone had a blast, and having such a great place to stay really made all the difference in our weekend. We will be back and we will be staying here again! Thank you, Ryan!

  • Me and my friends had a terrific time in Austin and in no small part to Ryan's condo that we rented. It was the perfect distance to the bars, Barton springs and even had a Starbucks across the street which we visited to recover in the morning. The condo was tidy and equipped with everything we needed for the weekend festivities. Additionally Ryan helped me with numerous recommendations and when a problem that we had in Austin came up he was in communication with us to resolve it. I would chose Ryan and his condo if and when I come back to Austin and would recommend it to anyone.

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.
