From the moment you walk in, you’ll feel like you’re in an upscale boutique hotel. That’s because we’ve outfitted Om Sweet Om with all the amenities you’d expect from a high-end vacation rental. From the plush furnishings, to the granite countertops, to the carefully curated artwork, we’ve gone all out to make sure your stay exceeds your expectations.

Om Sweet Om features 2 bedrooms (1 Queen 2 Twins 1 queen Sofa Bed), two bathrooms, and easily sleeps up to six people. Everything is in pristine condition upon your arrival.

In addition to all this, our budget-friendly rates are significantly lower than what you would pay for a comparable rental elsewhere in Austin. We are also one of the few downtown condominiums in compliance with local ordinances regarding vacation rentals—further proof of how much we care.

In terms of location, Om Sweet Om couldn’t be better situated. We are in the heart of downtown Austin—right next to the Austin Convention Center, two blocks from the Warehouse District and Sixth Street, and within walking distance of 100-plus restaurants and bars. At the same time, we’re located on a quiet side street, so once you walk into Om Sweet Om, you’ll feel a world away from the noise and crowds of the city.

About Sandeep Nanda

I grew up in Dallas and currently live in Las Vegas. I went to Yale University and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

I have been married since December 2003 and I have a 7 year old son.

I lived in this condo from June of 2000 until June of 2002 and I loved living there.

Sandeep Nanda purchased this condo in 2000

Why Sandeep Nanda chose Austin

Me and four friends were sharing a house when we learned about the Rail-yards Condo complex.

We could not believe the location and price so three of us bought places and all five of us moved there.

We all split up and moved away a couple of years later and I told my friends not to sell their places because they would be worth a lot someday. But they did.

I held onto mine and since I left, they built the Austin Convention Center next door, a Marriott across the street and a bunch of cool restaurants and bars.

It really is an amazing location and I wish that I could still live there.

Guestbook comments from the manager

5-Star ***** My family of five adults stayed in the condo for four nights. The location is very good for visiting downtown. We had no car but were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. There is a Starbucks across the street and also a Marriott which allowed us to store our luggage until check-in time.



The condo was comfortable to stay in. With the exception of the pull-out sofa, the beds were comfortable and extra blankets and pillows were available. The showers were good and hot and more than enough towels were provided. Although we did not do any cooking, the kitchen seemed well equipped.



The pool area is small, but nice. We visited once on a weekday afternoon and we were the only ones there.



Sandeep (owner) was very easy to work with. He answered all my questions promptly. I would stay here again when visiting austin.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a couple of couples hitting Austin for the first time. The condo two bed and bath was in the perfect location for us to explore 6th Street and hit the river greenway for morning runs. The owner was great to work with and had lots of suggestions for local fare. All in all a good place for a base camp...I'd recommend the condo to friends in the future!

Average unit with central location

  • 3 of 5

The location is defiantly the selling point of this unit if you are looking to walk to the bars, restaurants and downtown life. This is certainly not a luxury boutique hotel as advertised, but it is certainly a fine apartment to make your weekend crash pad. We were six early 30's friends visiting Austin for the weekend and it met our needs. Note: some of the pictures are not up-to-date, including the furniture.

The beds were very comfortable and the A/C worked well for us, though the bedrooms did get a bit warm if the doors were shut. The units on the third floor, but you still get quite a bit of street level noise in the street facing bedroom. The unit was clean and stocked with enough towels and sheets, pillows. There was also detergent available for washer and dishwasher if you need to run those appliances. There's one TV in the unit and the unit is decently sized, but can be tight if you hit the six person max. The pool is in a separate complex across the street.

My biggest complaint would be the front door, it had clearly been kicked in at some point and poorly repaired. The screws holding on the plate were falling out and the door was often hard to open and close. Management should replace the jamb to give guest a truly safe environment.

Good Location

  • 5 of 5

This property was well located to the main entertainment. The beds were very comfortable and the space very clean. It was nice to have the gated entry and exit as well as the gated covered parking.

Great space, great time

  • 5 of 5

We booked this space in advance for an event happening in Austin. It was great, conveniently located right next to the convention center. The Air Conditioning was broken the first night but the owner had it fixed promptly straight away the next morning, very impressed by how reachable and caring he was. All in all, we had a great time at the convention and coming back to comfy beds in a cozy room made all the difference. Very chill, would return!

Nice spot with a GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5

This rental was a good weekend get away. It was my first time in Austin and appreciated it's proximity to the hot spots and restaurants in the city. The unit was nice but the complex fit the "Keep Austin Weird" slogan. Some of the, what I assume to be, permanent residence of the complex had some odd behavior. Overall, If you are looking for a home base while you explore the city this is a great spot!
