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.

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, Uber drivers, 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 (when possible), but we will need to communicate in advance so we 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. These fines can be assessed by the HOA without warning, however, we 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 cleaning fee will be charged. If you choose to use the alarm system, please be aware that any false alarms that are created (sending for police and the fire department), will be a assessed per occurrence.
Although we are animal lovers, pets are strictly prohibited. Please respect this rule or risk forfeiting the security deposit and any fees for damage.
A welcome email will be provided after your reservation is confirmed with all of the details for your stay, including your unique automatic door lock codes and assigned parking. We will also provide suggestions for local attractions, restaurants, bars, and much more.
Great location in downtown Austin. The condo was easy to check-in/out of, had free private parking, and was close to good places to dine out. Worked great as our home and work place for my co-workers and I.
Great place, great location, great communication, well appointed!
I helped to host a girls weekend/bachelorette party for a group of 6 girls. This was the PERFECT place for our stay. Very clean and chic, this apartment was big enough for us to all sleep comfortably, and cozy enough for us to feel at home. It included everything we needed: dishes, towels, pillows, even hair dryers.
It was also perfectly situated in a great downtown location, and we were able to easily walk to all of the places we wanted to visit on 6th street and beyond. No need for cars or pedi cabs for us, but we did notice that a pedi cab would have been easily accessible just outside of our doors.
Check-in/check-out was simple and Ryan and I corresponded before our trip dates. Between Ryan and Thomas, all my questions were answered, and I was confident that our visit would be seemless. And it was! They left descriptive directions that made everything so simple for us.
I would HIGHLY recommend staying here to anyone and will book this apartment again next time I visit. Ryan has several places on Airbnb within Austin, so I feel confident booking any one of his locations. If the place has Ryan Windsor's name associated with it, then it's an automatic A+ in my book.
Thanks for the great visit!
Our host, Ryan exceeded all expectations from the minute we walked into our Railroad Oasis condo. Not only were his instructions on getting and entering the building helpful and to the "T," the condo was spotless and had amazing amenities!
Ryan also coordinated with my fiance & property manager, Thomas, to deliver special treats while keeping it a surprise and a seamless transition!
On top of it all, he accommodated an early and late check in.
He truly was a special part of my bachelorette party and I could not have wished or asked for anything more!
Absolutely outstanding is how I would describe this property. Located only 1 block from the convention, it was perfect for our Keller Williams event. The bedrooms each offer queen size beds with memory foam (email hidden)r a perfect nights sleep. Living room was relaxing and the perfect spot to relax after a long day of education. Thomas and Ryan are fantastic, easily approachable, and respond quickly. We will definitely want to stay in the condo again.... Thomas an extra thank you to you for all your assistance. We will be back.
The candy on the pillows was a nice touch. The listing was very accurate. The layout was very nice. The neighborhood is a great walking neighborhood. No complaints very easy to work with. No unreasonable requests, the actual unit has a lot of nice touches, but isn't cluttered. I would stay here again without even considering other options!

About the Host, 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.
