Austin Condo Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

The Railyard is truly the largest slice of VacationCake that we've done! We are very excited about this property and what it offers incoming guests. The Convention Center is literally two blocks away and of course, you're only about 2 miles from Zilker Park.

There's literally no better place to enjoy Austin. You don't need a car, but if you have one we have gated parking for free. There are dozens and dozens of restaurants and bars within a few blocks of this condo...you won't beat it.

This condo is fully furnished and has everything you could need during your trip to town.

Welcome to The Railyard! Austin at it's finest.

The Austin Convention Center: The Railyard will be a hub for the downtown Austin Convention Center, which is less than two blocks away!

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.

SXSW: $2499/night

Guestbook comments from the manager
A group of seven girlfriends and I made a home for ourselves for a fabulous weekend in austin at the Railyard. Located in the heart of Downtown austin, this was a perfect location to see the sites, live music, and enjoy the great weather. The Railyard offered plenty of space for eight ladies, a beautiful pool, and friendly neighbors. The Railyard is also within walking distance of 6th Street, SoCo, and other great restaurants. The individuals who hooked us up with the rental for the weekend were super personable and offered great recommendation to see the town! I would recommend this property to anyone who might be venturing to austin for a weekend!

EVERYONE IN THE GROUP WAS PLEASED!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Railyard for a bachelorette party and had a blast! This was the perfect condo for a group of girls! We had never been to Austin, but Jay and Lauren were so helpful and available. I will admit I was nervous because this was my first VRBO experience, but the whole process was easy and stress-free! As other people stated, the location is awesome and smack dab in the middle of all the fun. The pool was small and had a lot of shade, but some of the girls enjoyed it anyway! The condo is a little loud at night due to the location (being so close to nightlife) but for us it was fine. Would definitely stay here again and recommend others to check it out!

GREAT DOWNTOWN LOCATION - A LITTLE TLC NEEDED

  • 3 of 5
The location was central and very convenient for walkers who want to explore the city. Shared living space is quite small - kitchen table only fits 4 and just a couch and 1 chair but there are 4 bedrooms. Overall condition are okay but a more thorough cleaning, fresh coat of paint and upgraded bed linens would go a long way to justifying the price charged.

GREAT LOCATION, CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
The condo was great. Clean, comfortable and in a great location (2 blocks from everything). The condo was stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms which made travel easy. The rental staff was great and easy to work with. We didn't use the pool but it looked very private with some sun and shade. I would recommend to anyone looking for 4 bedrooms and I would stay again with pleasure!

GREAT LOCATION, "OK" SPACE AND FURNISHINGS

Great location, "OK" space and furnishings
  • 3 of 5
The location of this property is wonderful. The condo itself is in need of repair. The walls need to be painted. Some of the furnishings are worn. There is one couch (seats 3) and one chair for the group, so if more than four people are in the living room, there is a lack of seating space. The bedrooms have TVs, but they are not connected to anything, so the only TV with content is the one in the living room - with only 3 chairs. Doors don't close properly (including bathroom doors). The water is very strong upstairs and very weak downstairs. The air conditioning is not able to keep up with humidity management and cannot be set below 72 degrees. This results in a warm, muggy environment. There is a washer and dryer, but we did not try them. I did not see the grill on the balcony (which is quite small).

Also, the unit is on the third floor with no elevator, so plan ahead for luggage etc. The second floor unit is up a very tight and narrow spiral staircase. Again, very challenging for luggage, etc.

There was construction on a rail system about 2 blocks away during the night. This created very loud noise, which is probably a temporary problem. The Marilyn Monroe room has a bright street light right outside the window. The blinds do not block this light, so prepare to sleep in a very bright room.

On a happy note, there was ample coffee, including whole beans and a grinder. The property itself is quiet and clean.
