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!

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!

Great weekend in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 girls stay for a long weekend bachelorette party in this condo. The condo was spacious with plenty of room for us and our luggage. It was great to have 3 full bathrooms which is hard to find at a reasonable price in downtown Austin. We were able to walk to Rainey Street, tons of restaurants, and it is so close to all the bars on Sixth Street. Kelly, the housekeeper, did a great job cleaning and was so sweet. Thank you!!!

Great location, but property needs an update!

  • 3 of 5

Property is tired and a little run down...blinds dont keep out the bright street lights and bathrooms need an upgrade. Most of all the condo has no sound proofing...the noise outside sounds like the people are partying indoors with you. Great set up with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms...good location, but overpriced for what it really is.

Great location and set up for 4 couples

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Austin and plenty of room. Jay was very helpful and offered many recommendations. Close enough to walk to South Congress, Rainey Street and downtown, we enjoyed the weekend! Thanks

Spacious, super close to 6th street, cute complex with pool

  • 5 of 5

WE HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES IN AUSTIN!!! Thank you so much Jay! Imagine a bachelorette party of 8 ladies from California... Lots of luggage, lots of products and a lot of much needed space! This place definitely fit our needs! 3 bedrooms and a loft with 3 FULL BATHROOMS!!! Getting ready was a breeze!!! Everyone felt like they had there own space but we all had a common space to unite and take a couple shots before going out... Well maybe it was more than a couple! Sorry Jay! LOL! Cute but pretty dangerous (after those couple shots) spiral staircase that leads to the loft, which we all enjoyed going up and down! Lol. Bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms were too. Kitchen feels a little closed off but has a cute bar and stools for a couple people. Has a small balcony, but you can see 6th street while on it. Easy to see when the parties are starting!!! Small pool in the middle of complex, which was a plus in the 95 degree weather!!! Parking spot available if you need it and everything is gated, which felt safe! Only downside is that it's on the 3rd floor... 8 ladies, over 20 pieces of luggage and bags, lots of groceries and "drinks".... That was ROUGH but definitely didn't effect our stay!!!! Oh and did I mention they let a late checkout at the last minute!!! It was necessary and much appreciated LOL. We would totally stay here again! Jay is super cool and Kelly made sure we enjoyed our stay!!! DO IT... Stay here... 🙉🙈🙊
