About the property

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 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!

Excellent Place to Stay for a Austin Convention

  • 5 of 5

5 guys stayed comfortably for 4 nights to attend a national construction convention.

Worked out fantastic, 1-1/2 blocks from the convention center and close to everything, and stumbling distance from the entertainment districts. Condo has everything you need !

great location for a 4 bedroom place

  • 4 of 5

Great location for a 4 bedroom place - not many other options.

People have said the place is a little run down, but if you go in knowing that, you find it is actually in decent shape. The two main issues we had were the fans are broken in one bedroom. Probably needs to be replaced as it makes a loud noise, and the fob key was not in the house - which limited parking for a day or two.

The internet was reset previously, so the info in the guidebook was wrong, but we quickly found the password after a second reset.

Still, a nice place and worth a stay. The manager was very responsive and nice.

Comfortable beds, good layout, fun pool with a tree in it!

  • 5 of 5

Everything worked seamlessly. It was a comfortable stay and a great layout for a group of people. The pool was a wonderful addition and you can't beat the location.

Central location - everything was easy!

  • 5 of 5

My college roommates and I got together for our 40th birthdays and enjoyed a fun weekend together at this condo. There was plenty of space for 7 of us and we were close to everything - we walked everywhere. We weren't able to get in on time at check in, but hey we're very accommodating and responsive. We needed a couple things during our stay and they were on it! Thanks for a great place to call home for a few days.

Great Location - Needs Updating

  • 3 of 5

The review from February, 2017 was spot on. You cannot beat the location, however, it needs a good cleaning and updating. The owners were easy to deal with and let us leave our luggage in the condo before check in time. We were totally disconnected because we couldn't get any of the TV's to work. Several people tried. The one upstairs in the loft had no remote. The loft bathroom needed the door to be cut so it would open and close properly and something to be done with the shower curtain. Given the price point, one would think they would heed some of the feedback and update things. All and all, we would stay again because you can't beat the location.

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at this property for SXSW, and it was exactly what we needed! Four bedrooms with four queens, very clean, spacious, and extra space for additional sleepers (with air mattresses as well!!). The place is right off of Sixth street, which provided a great stop off point during the day and night, and easy access to all of the action!! Doing it again next year!
