The Railyard Oasis Located Downtown

Apartment - Entire home/apt · East 4th Street, Austin, TX 78701, United States

Enjoy the best that downtown Austin has to offer from nightlife, bars, and restaurants to shopping, yoga, and exploring the great outdoors. This swanky condo is perfectly located in the heart of town, and provides access to a community pool.

The Space

If you are looking for the perfect downtown location for SXSW, Fornula 1, Austin City Limits, UT Football weekends, and more, you have found it! Located on the corner of 4th and San Jacinto, this 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo is fully furnished with everything you need for an incredible stay in the music capital of the world.

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 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.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Was with 4 of my co workers for a conference in Austin. I am so happy we found this gem if a house. It was very clean and spacious, very well stocked with linens. The kitchen is modern and clean. Ryan is also so easy to work with and very helpful. If I am ever back in Austin I will definitely try to stay here again!

    Response from Ryan:

    You are too kind, Cherie. Thank you for your review. You were an excellent guest, and I hope to host you again someday soon.

  • Excellent location and decor. Spacious and clean. Ryan was a welcoming and friendly host who attended to all of our needs and questions. Can be loud at night (during SXSW) because it's on the first floor, but that is to be expected during this event. This condo was perfect for what we wanted!

  • We had a great time in Austin and Ryan's place was absolutely perfect. Close to all the spots downtown and Rainey St. Communication was clear for checking in & checking out. He's a great host and we'd definitely recommend him!

  • This apartment is excellently located for the best of Austin! We appreciated easy airport access, 2 blocks off the famed 6th St, and really, walking distance to most everything. We enjoyed a great segway tour from (website hidden), and used B-cycles to get around some too.

    The apartment was spacious and well appointed, and Ryan was very accommodating and a good communicator.

    Highly recommended!

  • Ryan was easy to communicate with. The condo was in a great location, easy to walk to most places. It was clean, furnished very nicely and easy access to the first floor condo. The keypad access to the front door made it easy and convenient.

    Thanks, Betty. You were a delightful guest, and I am glad you spent part of your holiday at my condo in Austin. Please come back again soon.

    Definitely would stay here again in the future. Great spot.

  • Great spot. Ryan was really helpful.

  • This condo is amazing! Perfect location and even better than the pictures. If you fly in, take the MetroBus, as it lets you off right on the corner of 4th and Trinity - and it's only $1! Beautiful space, awesome host, and terrific location. Next time we head back to Austin we will DEFINITELY be staying here!

    Thank you, Ryan!

Travel Industry
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 the 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.
