The Swanky Loft in the Heart of Downtown

This Swanky loft condo is the place to be. There are 2 full bedrooms downstairs, 2 loft bedrooms upstairs, and 2 full bathrooms. There is plenty of space to sleep 8 comfortably. If you need to accommodate 2 more, we also have 2 twin air mattresses that can be used. We provide private parking, and arguably one of the best locations in the city. These are just a few reasons to call this place home during your trip to Austin or downtown staycation.

The Space

Situated across the street from the Austin Convention Center, the location cannot be beat. Stay two blocks from the world famous 6th Street and Warehouse District. This space is a handful of blocks from every other downtown attraction. This includes hundreds of restaurants, movie theaters, bars, nightclubs, lounges, and live music venues. 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. Further, arrangements can be made for a temporary gym membership two blocks away.

This condo is approximately 1,200 square feet, and accommodations up to 10 guests with one queen bed each sleeping area, as well as two twin air mattresses. There are 2 full bathrooms, central air and heat, a full sized stackable washer and dryer, free cable television, free wireless internet access, and plush furnishings. With granite counter tops, renovated kitchen and bathrooms, flat screen televisions mounted on the walls, and interesting decor and games to enjoy, every detail has been considered to make your stay a memorable one.

A full kitchen with oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, Keurig 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…

Entertain in Austin

For entertaining, a bar area comes stocked with glassware and all of the bar tools. Just add liquor and mixers and you are all set. The closest liquor store is 1 block 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 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.

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.  Please note that we are fully licensed with the City of Austin, and State of Texas. Permit #2014-111857 OL

Ryan was always in communication along with his employees. They addressed a kitchen concern very quickly. I appreciate that we had direct contact numbers. The place is decorated great and it was awesome there was an air mattress already in the unit!

I loved Austin. The location of this apartment is fantastic and they are very thorough about places to check out and sightsee! Overall we had an amazing weekend!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Railyard during the Austin Film Festival. Location was ideal. Apartment was comfortable. And Ryan was a dependable, reliable host.

Ryan and his properties are a fantastic choice for your stay in Austin. Take it from a former resident – the location can’t be beat. Combine that with the charm of a well-decorated place with hotel-like amenities, and you’ve got yourself a perfect rental!

As a first-time Airbnb renter, I was skeptical of the process, but Ryan put my mind at ease immediately. He was very responsive to communications and questions pre-booking, sent a very detailed list of instructions for everything we needed to know for our trip, and and his team immediately followed up with answers to our last-minute questions just before our stay.

My only complaint is that the trip ended too soon, but I’m afraid there’s nothing Ryan could’ve done about that – else I’m sure he would’ve tried!

Our group of 7 had a great stay at the condo this January. Plenty of sleeping room, and the beds were very comfortable (memoryfoam I think). The common room/living space was a little tight and oddly shaped, but we made it work as we were mostly out and about exploring Austin. It just wouldn’t be great if you really wanted to lounge and cook dinners with a large group at the condo. The location of the place is amazing–extremely central and within walking distance (so long as the weather is nice!) of most areas. We didn’t have a car, so this was extremely valuable! The condo is right across from a big hotel so there were always lots of cabs right in front and also a Starbucks in the hotel lobby! The check-in/out process was very easy and Ryan and team were super efficient and responsive to our questions, accommodated a late checkout, etc. Overall a great stay! Thanks!

So first off – I have to say that Austin was my favorite domestic trip I’ve been on. There were a few key reasons why this property helped:

1. The location couldn’t be better. It is one and a half blocks from “dirty” 6th street – the college bar scene. Franklins (the famous BBQ) and west 6th street (the bars for us in our late 20s) are within walking distance on a nice day (10-15 min walk). You also get a parking space to drive to other, farther away attractions.
2. The space COMFORTABLY fits 8 people. The air mattresses are small (that fit 2 more), but they definitely work.
3. The condo is stocked with shampoo, bodywash, coffee, etc. It makes the experience that much easier.
4. The place is a beautiful loft – complete with wifi, tvs, etc.
5. Did I mention the LOCATION! It really can’t be beat. And the price is very good compared to local hotels.

Ryan and his property manager, Thomas, were more than amenable. I had all the information I needed prior to arriving in Austin. Thomas was very quick to answer my calls and accommodated my group tremendously. They gave my group our space but were there when we needed them.

One thing to note – the rooms don’t lock. Just so you know :).

I will also say this – my group had a few people that, no matter how many times you told them, would not be quiet after the “quiet hours” (10pm – 7am). I would say that, as a result, we were a loud group. There are tenants that live full-time in this complex, but they were all very gracious and respectful if we were being too loud.

Overall, this place is a 5 star rental for sure. I would recommend it to really any larger groups. If you come when Brazos Hall (two blocks down) has an event, I would recommend going to that – we had the best NYE there!!

Elizabeth U. says:

I stayed at Ryan’s place with eight of my girlfriends for a reunion weekend. We loved the apartment – it was clean, had lots of space and had lots of towels, cleaning supplies, etc. Great location as well – walking distance to a lot of the places we went or a short Uber.

Nina C. says:

We had a great time in Austin over the 4th of July weekend with 3 other couples. The location was great and walking distance to the firework display.

Gabby A. says:

The condo was absolutely beautiful – even better than reflected in the pictures. It was central to everything and was an extremely comfortable home base. Ryan was very responsive during the process. I wouldn’t change a thing!

February 21, 2015 at 3:21 pm
Chris A. says:

Ryan was great, the lock system was excellent as there was no messing around with collecting or dropping off keys. The place is truly swanky and very central. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend anyone visiting Austin to use this condo. Keep up the good work.

Manuel R. says:

Genial. Ubicación perfecta. Es exactamente como aparece en las fotos. Camas super cómodas. Si volviese a Austin me quedaría en el mismo apartamento sin dudarlo un segundo.

Bob P. says:

Listing and pictures held true to what was promised. The unit appears to be used exclusively for airbnb, and was very clean and we’ll maintained.

Moreover, the property manager, Thomas, was extremely responsive to his guests and accommodating to various questions we had.

Ryan L. says:

Nice place and great location. Close to everything in downtown Austin and plenty of space for the 8 of us who stayed there for a weekend. Ryan was responsive when we had an issue (another car in the assigned spot – not his fault) and took care of us. Highly recommended and would stay here again.

The host made us feel welcome and all the information he provided was EXTREMELY helpful. He clued us in on how to check-in, where to hang out, and how to get back to the airport. The unit itself was incredible. We were easily accomodated and the location was great!

Kenneth M. says:

It was great! I was staying here for my wedding with my groomsmen. The place was perfect, we were in a great part of downtown and the accommodations were great. The apartment is updated and has a very comfortable feel. If I come back to Austin I would definitely stay here again. The hosts were great and very helpful. We needed another parking place and they helped us find them very quickly, I was very pleased.

Kayla M. says:

The condo was nice and clean! Very true to pictures. The location was great and we only had to Uber a couple times. There are great restaurants around that you can just walk to. The house was fully stocked with plenty of shampoo, body wash, paper towels, etc. It was great! The welcome email I received after booking was really thorough and helpful for activities as well!

Molly M. says:

This was a great rental for a group. Plenty of room for everyone, excellent location and easy to get in and out thanks to all of the set up and information on the front end from Ryan. I had a slight hiccup with another renter staying in the complex when I parked in the wrong parking spot – but a quick call to the number Ryan provided and we got it straightened out in seconds. Super helpful and everything that was presented. Thanks!

Matt M. says:

We made this reservation to celebrate a friend’s and my birthday and we had the best possible experience. Every single aspect of our reservation, check-in, stay and check-out were handled impeccably by Ryan, Jared and Thomas.

Jared was our contact during our stay, and he went out of his way more than once to make our stay as convenient, seamless and easy as possible. From offering to store our bags prior to check-in, delivering them to the unit while we were out and about during the day, allowing late check-out before we flew out, and his general availability to answer questions and provide recommendations throughout our stay, I can’t say enough about how tremendous a job Jared did.

The condo looked great, sleeps 4-8 people comfortably (maybe even 10, if you use the airbeds) and had plenty of amenities and conveniences.

If you are looking for a clean, nice, comfortable, convenient place to stay in a fantastic location, for a great price, with outstanding hosts, I strongly suggest you look no further than here.

Thanks again!

Ashwin S. says:

Dealing with Ryan was incredibly convenient. We rented this apartment for a convention and four of us from my company stayed there. It was right across the street from the convention center and we saved a LOT of money. Ryan was very friendly. In fact we had originally had booked another apartment, but then had to extend a night. The original apartment wasn’t available so we had to switch to another unit. Ryan made the transition extremely easy. The apartment itself was also great and we would definitely rent again.

Ryan made me feel welcome and provided a lot of information about the city and surrounding area. The location of the condo was very convenient and we were able to easily walk to numerous attractions/restaurants. The place was clean and I found it to be just as advertised. The complex got loud at night on a couple occasions due to the partying of other units but that was our only complaint.

August 28, 2015 at 12:48 pm
Joe C. says:

Our stay at Ryan’s condo was amazing. The location couldn’t be beat for accessibility to anywhere downtown. The unit was beautiful and clean when we arrived. We had an issue with our A/C not working and Ryan and his team were on it in no time. We couldn’t have picked a better place for our trip.

The swanky loft is perfect for groups looking to explore the downtown area. Comfortable, clean, and safe. Walking distance to bars on 6th street, restaurants, and cafes.

February 1, 2017 at 8:43 pm
Sara says:

We had a very nice experience at Ryan’s place. Everything was straight forward and worked out well. The location cannot be beat, it is very centrally located, but the street it’s located on is quiet (except for firetrucks). The only negatives i would warn people about is the 3rd and 4th bedroom upstairs are open to each other and the rest of the house (loft style) which makes it difficult to socialize at night if someone is trying to sleep. We ran into that problem a lot. Plus the people sharing the area up there should probably be familiar with each other to coexist in one room. It could also use a 3rd bathroom with 8 people staying in the room. Other than that, we enjoyed the apartment very much.

VERY professional and responsive host. The place itself was very nice and well kept. The location is central to everything one would want to do in Austin. The amenities are limited (only a small pool) but being located in the heart of the action, they are not really necessary. HIGHLY recommend this place particularly for larger parties as it is quite spacious.

February 1, 2017 at 8:48 pm

Great location downtown! Easy access, comfortable, clean. Ryan was very responsive and helpful. Would certainly stay here again if I’m back in Austin.

Catherine says:

So incredibly responsive and accommodating. We had three cars, and they were able to secure an additional two parking spaces for us fairly quickly. Very communicative and quick to respond to any issues we had. Perfect location, walking distance to almost everywhere we needed to go, which was especially helpful now that Austin doesn’t have Uber. Very nicely decorated, the beds were incredibly comfortable. I would DEFINITELY recommend this condo.

February 1, 2017 at 8:49 pm
Amy says:

My group loved our stay here! Couldn’t beat the location for downtown Austin. It was a lifesaver to have access to free parking for our rental car. We stayed here for my bachelorette party and it was the perfect size for a group of nine girls. There were a lot of little touches that made it feel like a home and a few more that made it feel a little nicer than home. None of us had ever seen a TV over a bed before!

February 1, 2017 at 8:49 pm

Great location and nice apartment, exactly as advertised. Lack of communication before the trip is what made this experience stressful.

Robyn says:

Ryan was very accommodating and quickly responded to all emails. Austin is beautiful place and the condo is equally just as beautiful. It’s very conveniently located to downtown Austin, only two blocks from 6th street where the night life is at. We loved the decor in the condo and the fact that we were able to walk to 6th Street, Rainey, and Town Lake. However, there were a few things that were not functioning properly. Both of the air mattresses seemed to have leaks. They were deflated within just a few hours of use. Also, the barstool chairs in the kitchen are wobbley, but they seem to be usable. Aside from those little mishaps, the condo is in a great location if you’re up for walking around the city. We also took the public transportation from the airport for $1.75 and it dropped us off right in front of the condo. I would recommend this place to a friend, but make sure you inquire about the air mattresses if you plan to have guests sleeping on them! Overall it was clean and well kept. Thank you again for the stay, Ryan. We thoroughly enjoyed Austin!

My experience was as described. This was a nice blast from the past for me as I used to live in this building complex when I was in college 20 years ago. Boy is Austin different now. Great location remains the same.

I recently stayed here for a weekend and everyone in my party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed it. The accommodations are very comfortable and have everything you need. The location is what really makes this place stand out. We never had to use a taxi or uber once in three days. Everything is in walking distance! Also, Ryan is great to work with and he will assist you with just about anything. – Highly recommended!

February 1, 2017 at 8:57 pm

Our experience was wonderful. Ryan was very helpful, providing lots of recommendations for restaurants, tourist spots, bars, etc. His associate Thomas was also very helpful in getting us an early check-in. The apartment met all of our needs. There were 10 of us, and it never felt cramped. The decorations were great, and the location could not have been better.

Great location for convention center and activities on 6th and Rainey St. Ryan is a great host for communications…quick to answer questions before arrival and during our stay. Space was adequate, clean, well decorated. Thanks for a great stay.

David says:

Ryan’s condo is fantastic. It’s SUPER close to the convention center and all of the fun things in downtown Austin. It was clean, nicely decorated, and a great place to unwind after a long day in Austin. We will book here again in the future, for sure!

Nathan says:

This place was fantastic and perfect for what we needed. It is literally the closest you cold possibly get to the Austin Convention center which was great for our team that was there all week. Everything was clean and our whole crew loved the beds. Will be a go to for any trips to Austin for sure.

Daniel says:

Our group of five enjoyed our stay. We’re hoping to stay here again in a few years when our convention rotates back to Austin. Great location (right across the street from the convention center, and a couple blocks from the 6th street entertainment district), clean, and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable as well. The hosts responded quickly to queries. Biggest downside was generally slow wifi (~1Mbps down/0.08 up), and was particularly flaky in the loft.

February 1, 2017 at 9:04 pm

This was the most perfect weekend! A beautiful apartment, worked perfectly for our group. Everything was immaculate and welcoming. Thank you so much to Ryan for a great stay!

February 1, 2017 at 9:05 pm
Ryan says:

The six of us had a great time staying at this condo. The listing was accurate, and there was more than enough room for each couple to have their own space. The common area was a bit small, but the location was great–just a few minutes by foot to lots of stuff to do in downtown Austin. Ryan was also very accommodating. He responded immediately when we requested storing our bags for a few hours after checkout. Thanks Ryan!

February 1, 2017 at 9:05 pm

We had a great experience at this Condo. It was one of four that we rented for a large reunion. Ryan was extremely responsive and helpful. 10 out of 10!

Carol says:

Iit was wonderful. Hopefully my future bookings will be as good as this one. The condo was clean, spacious, and the instructions Ryan gave us were very clear and concise so we had no issues entering and leaving the condo, finding the garage gate clicker, etc. The parking spot was close to the unit and to our surprise there was plenty of street parking. It was pretty cheap especially compared to San Francisco prices! The condo was located conveniently near 6th street so there were plenty of bars within walking distance. Ryan, the host was very responsive and answered us immediately if we had any questions.

February 1, 2017 at 9:06 pm
Samantha says:

We had a great experience staying at Ryan’s condo! It’s very spacious and clean. The condo is conveniently located-right next door to the convention center and just a few blocks from Rainey St. We needed two parking spaces and Ryan was able to accommodate us which was great because parking is very expensive downtown! Ryan also gave us a bottle of wine.

Mitali says:

A little different this time around. I was here for work with 2 co-workers rather than for pleasure. The place is well decorated, comfortable, the showers with great water pressure & they took care of the basics. It’s hard to beat the location with a parking space. The key less entry made it so easy to get in and out with the 3 of us. The hosts were extremely responsive, professional, provided really good recommendations & were willing to get the apartment ready for an early check-in. They send you a long list of instructions, so everything is pretty much answered for you – it’s easy. But if you are staying here for work, keep in mind, the loft space has 2 queen beds but it’s totally open, both bathroom are located downstairs, and the living room is a bit small. It made it difficult to work at the table for 6 of us. I would definitely stay here again but not for work.

February 1, 2017 at 9:07 pm
Darshini says:

Ryan and Thomas did a fantastic job prepping the apartment for us! Absolutely every question was answered in their detailed information sheet — we didn’t struggle with anything. The home itself is VERY clean and well supplied with everything we may have needed over the weekend. The location of the condo is perfect — secure in its own gated complex. We were able to walk to several things in our itinerary (the famous Rainey street and Historic 6th street are very close). It is also very easy to get to and from the airport. I would definitely recommend this place!

Ryan’s condo was absolutely perfect for attending SXSWEco at the Austin Convention Center. It is literally across the street from the Center. Checking in was as easy as it could be, and the condo was well-appointed with everything my teammates and I needed for our stay. I highly recommend this location!

The place was exactly as advertised. The location can not be beat as you are basically nestled between east 6th street and Rainey Districts. Access was ideal, particularly if you have a car.

Couldn’t have had a better experience with this Airbnb. It was 5 of us girls for a weekend in Austin and the location was absolutely amazing. The space itself was beautiful and extremely spacious. There were 4 beds and 2 full baths, all amenities. It was honestly perfect for us. Communication with the host was excellent as well. 5 stars!!

The location is excellent! Perfectly situated downtown and it’s easy to get in/out of the condo. That being said, some of the windows do not lock so we were at times worried about leaving our belongings there. I did not have any interaction with Ryan – as the email he sent prior to our arrival was self explanatory. The place is a lot smaller in real life and the loft upstairs is just one room with two double beds. My only other complaint would be the shower downstairs does not drain which is gross especially if you need to take showers one after another. The place is all about its location.

Our stay at Ryan’s loft was fantastic. We came to Austin for a weekend with a group of 8 and fit very comfortably in the space. The loft itself is beautiful and had everything we needed – plus the location was perfect. Ryan and Thomas were extremely helpful both before and during our stay, providing recommendations and assistance when we needed it. I would absolutely recommend this location if you’re looking for a great place to stay in an ideal location.

Location was fantastic. It’s not a particularly large space, but it’s well-equipped, reasonably priced, and absolutely spotless. We fit 8 very comfortably. Would definitely stay there again.

Great space for our group. Walking distance to everything, and Ryan answered all the questions we had!

The Swanky Loft met our needs perfectly. As a group of four colleagues traveling to attend SXSWEDU, the proximity to the Convention Center and dining options were perfect. It’s worth noting that two of the sleeping areas are upstairs in the “loft” area — one of which has a door. As a group of two women and two men, the guys took the upstairs and the ladies each had a bedroom downstairs. Also, one of the bedrooms had a bathroom and the second was in the hallway. It all worked out great for our group, but worth considering if you’re traveling here for work vs. with a group of friends. Ryan was fantastic – super responsive and friendly. This was the perfect fit for us and would def. recommend.

Unbelievable location. Right where you want to be if you’re in Austin. Thomas and Ryan got back to me immediately if we ever had any questions and made sure we felt at home. Amazing trip. Anytime I ever come back I will try to make sure I get this place!

We had a great time in the condo. It was very clean, the beds were super comfortable. The location is ideal and the included parking space was a great addition. We can’t wait to come back again.

Ryan has a great place in Austin, right in the heart of downtown, just a 2 minute walk away from 6th street, the water, and Rainey Street in all directions. There are amazing restaurants, bars, and attractions all surrounding his place. The apartment itself is great– it’s 2 stories, and has 4 bedrooms with big beds. I will for sure stay here again if given the chance!

Swanky Loft is in a fantastic gated community. We loved our time in Austin and would definitely recommend staying here for the slightly larger groups. We had plenty of space and we were located in an ideal area; walking distance to everything!

Great place and great location. Was perfect for our group and is perfectly situated near Congress, 6th st, and a short walk from Rainey as well. Would definitely stay here again.

Would highly recommend this place for a group of friends. There is a large loft with 2 queen beds (minimal privacy) along with two separate bedrooms and 2 twin air mattresses that could fit in the loft or one of the bedrooms. Centrally located and easy to access with keypad entry rather than a key.
