Great Apartment in a great location. The apartment has everything you need and is walking distance from everything that Austin has to offer (6th St, Rainey St). Ryan is very easy to deal with and even offers you tips on the city. I’d definitely stay there again.

Our stay was was incredible! The unit was gorgeous, clean, and spacious, as well as super close to everything downtown. Ryan was a super gracious host- personable & professional. His property manager, Thomas, was also super helpful and positive. Super quick to answer any questions. We had a problem with the WiFi, and they showed up within an hour with a paid AT&T hotspot for us to use during our stay. Class act.

Great location right in downtown. Walkable score: high. Perfect for SXSW. Host prepped the place so it was spotless and well arranged. Has all you need to spend a great weekend in Austin. Would definitely rent again and recommend to friends and family.

Ryan was a great host and sent a ton of info about the apartment, Austin’s best sights and was always available to answer any questions. The apartment is immaculate, resembles the pictures exactly and is literally the best place to stay downtown. It’s within walking distance to all major attractions and if you’re attending conference at the convention centre then you’re literally a one minute walk away. Highly recommend this apartment and Ryan as a host.

I rented 5 apartments from Ryan on Air BnB for a weekend in Austin (getting my MBA at UChicago and we only travel in packs); the Speakeasy, Retro Chic, Argyle, Grant Austin, and the Cosmopolitan. The apartments are well furnished and well kept.

Ryan and his property manager (Thomas) are extremely accessible and helpful. All of my questions were quickly answered and it was nice that they checked in with us during the weekend, and were extremely flexible on the check in / check out times.

The only thing (and this is CLEARLY written in the apartment descriptions, so its just something I should have thought about more carefully) is that it sometimes does really stink to sleep on air mattresses, so if you can at all, I’d highly recommend you only bring enough people that there are beds for.

The location was terrific – close to downtown (CBD) and 6th Street. Lost of places to eat and hang out. Room is just as it appears. Highly recommended!

Christopher A. says:

The place was awesome! It’s exactly as it looks in all the pictures. The best part about the experience was that Ryan sent an email a few days before my stay that had everything in it regarding logistics (checkin, checkout, how to get in) as well really interesting recommendations and guides to Austin. It was a great experience. The location is perfect as well – right in the heart of downtown and just a few blocks from 6th street.

Ryan’s place is great. Super clean, convenient downtown location, and has everything you need for your stay. Definitely recommend it if you’re headed out to Austin.

A great experience all around. The apartment is in the most convenient place, centrally downtown without the street being overcome with pedestrians. The parking is great, secure and easy to access. The apartment itself has everything you need to feel like you’re at home and the description is accurate. The guys were super helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. Thank you for a great experience – I would definitely come back.

Ryan is an amazing host and works diligently to give his visitors a perfect experience when visiting Austin. Having stayed at multiple properties of Ryan’s, I will say that each property has a unique vibe which is both inviting and totally Austin. The proximity of these places cannot be beat! You will not go wrong staying in any of Ryan’s properties.
