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!

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... 🙉🙈🙊

Absolute perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This condo is in an absolute perfect location. Walking distance to all the major districts in Austin. But keep in mind if you are an early bird it can be noisy as the night goes on and when its closing time at the bars. Accommodations were perfect for 8 of us. If you plan to use the pool area keep in mind there are only 4 chairs. Owners were super nice, easy to deal with, let us get a late check out, and allowed us to leave our luggage in the condo on the day of our departure. The condo had everything you could need, including plenty of towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner. My only complaint is that is could use a really good cleaning. The ceiling fans and vents are covered in dust and the floors were very very sticky. We were able to overlook all that because you couldn't ask for a more perfect location. I would stay here again.

Love Austin

  • 3 of 5

The property had ample room and was in a location you cannot beat. The service experience was fantastic with lots of helpful hints to enjoy the city. I hit up 50% of the places they recommended and they were all home runs. The place itself is a bit run down, ready for carpets and paint. It was mostly clean, but someone that is fussy wouldn't likely enjoy themselves. One odd thing to note, which I'm confident the owners will address, is that when the maintenance guy washes the stairs and hallway, he washes the door as well and water pours in under the threshold. So if you have mystery water in front of the door that's what happened.

Good property for a week in Austin

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Staff was super friendly and helpful. Apartment was close to convention center, Rainey St., and 6th St. Apartment was nice. Rooms was good size but kitchen and sitting area were a bit small and the carpet was a little rough. Good value for the money though. I would stay there again.
