Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, a small patio, and a fireplace in the heart of downtown

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

Situated less than 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 8,50 square foot unit features accommodations for up to 5 guests (two queen beds and a sofa), central air and heat, a full sized stackable washer and dryer, a small 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 super cozy 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 Capital Metro Airport Flyer from Austin Bergstrom International for $1.50 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.

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. **Please note that we are fully licensed with the City of Austin, and State of Texas.

About Ryan Windsor

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.

Ryan Windsor purchased this condo in 2014

Why Ryan Windsor chose Waller Creek District

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect spot walking distance to all of downtown. The condo was nicely decorated, and perfect for 2 couples. Tom, the local contact, was very responsive when we made a compliant about the upstairs neighbors bachelor party (after we told them to quiet down twice), Tom made contact with the HOA of that building and things got much quieter, and Tom was very upset that we had to experience this.

The unit needed a little TLC, one of the bedroom carpets had stains and really needed to be replaced. The building in general need a little TLC, but we really enjoyed our stay here, and would come again.

FAntastic Location

  • 4 of 5

Best location for all the sights. tastes & sounds of Austin. You can walk everywhere from here. Great amenities with everyyhing you could need. Nice touch leaving shower wash, shampoo & conditioner.

The add mentioned a pool however ww didn't find this? We didn't really need a pool as our 4 days were full.

Perfect for our needs, we would have liked a bit more info on the local area, perhaps a guest book with tips from previous guests of places to go? And how to use appliances as being from overseas not everyyhing was clear.

Really enjoyed our stay & would recommend and stay again if we are ever in the area.

Communication was spot on and appreciated.

Review of Our Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Great location to all the downtown activity......... Lovely suite of rooms. The "staff" went beyond the call of duty to help us and take care of some individualized help that we needed. Would recommend this to anyone who wanted to be downtown Austin without the commercial "feel" of a typical hotel.

The Austin Speakeasy is the perfect location for downtown staycations or event weekends like ACL, SXSW, Formula 1, UT Football, and so much more. Located just two blocks from the 6th Street Entertainment District, across the street from the Austin Convention Center, and in the heart of all of the bars, restaurants, and theaters that are downtown, this really is ground zero as for as Austin is concerned.
