About Ryan Windsor
I have been in Austin since 1994. As much as I love the city, I also enjoy traveling and photographing vacation destinations and tourist attractions around the world. As a registered travel agent, I am able to work while I enjoy tours and activities in places like the London, Paris, Rome, New York, San Francisco, and Hawaii, to name a few.
Ryan Windsor purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Ryan Windsor chose Waller Creek District
I have always wanted to own/operate a hotel. That has been a passion of mine since I was a child. For that reason, I enjoy having guests staying in my rental properties, and I want to provide so much more than just a place to stay. My goal is to create a memorable experience for my guests.
What makes this Condo unique
I want my guests to know that not only does Austin deliver a good time, but that this home away from home is waiting for you. With my connections in the travel industry, and tenure in the city, I strive to provide a level of service you will not find with other rental managers. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like. I enjoy talking about Austin and the property, so I welcome you to communicate with me. I am here to help, and your good time is my priority. If you are interested in hosting an even larger group, please note that I own and manage a large number of units in the same building complex, as well as some nearby houses. I am happy to host large groups for weddings, convention center trade shows, and other events in Austin.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Not as Pictured
We had multiple issues with the property from the time we checked in (one of the toilets in disrepair, none of the three tv's worked, no batteries in tv remotes, 'security' gate to building didn't close, chipped cabinets that wouldn't close). In spite of three separate phone calls and an email outlining the issues, we never heard back from the property management or owner - and we were there for three nights. In addition to ZERO customer service, this property is a corner unit on the first floor of the building - meaning that you will deal with street/pedestrian noise all night long (sidewalk conversations might as well be in the bedroom with you).
This guest struggled to follow basic instructions, and these issues were not even mentioned. Further, upon inspection, the TVs work fine, the batteries work fine, and the gate works fine. I’m sorry this guest was obviously unhappy, but this seems ridiculous.
Good location, room for 6, lots of traffic and people noise with first floor location on a corner of 2 busy streets. Vintage record player with selection of records but no needle in player so could not use. Searched for a book describing unit and departure procedures but did not find one. That would be helpful for future guests.
Location worked quite well. Crazy fire alarm experience.
This unit is a short walk to the 6th Street, Rainey Street, the Congress Street Bridge, and to several good restaurants. It's a fairly quiet building, has a small pool across the street in a different building, in general has nice amenities. Strangely, we were abruptly woken up at 8:00 a.m. one morning by a monthly fire alarm test being conducted throughout the building. It lasted for over an hour with a high pitched, priercing alarm going off every minute or so! It was a super obnoxious time to schedule a monthly fire alarm test for those vacationing in the unit.
I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed everything about the property itself, and it's great location to night life and restaurants etc.. I apologize for the alarm issue. This wasn't a monthly test we individually decided to have, but an annual mandatory test for the whole complex per the Austin Fire Dept in order to stay up to code. We do our best to communicate with our guests as soon as we hear of such things which is very rare. I apologize for the inconvenience and would like to make it up to you on your next stay. Thank you.
Location is perfect! Right next to 6th and downtown.
We booked this room for 8 people, 3 couples in the bedrooms and one couple on the provided air mattress. The accommodations were great and we had a great weekend being able to walk to brunch, 6th, and anything we did around downtown Austin. Comes with its own parking spot which is very convenient. No complaints, would definitely stay here again!
We loved hosting your group, and welcome you back any time you are visiting Austin. Thank you for being such excellent guests, and please keep in touch.
Great location and condo
Great location for any downtown activities or conference. We will be back.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Austin, as well as the location next door to the convention center. I hope to host you again in the future.
All the best,
Great location but noisy
The location was great, however, the neighbors and gates were very noisy. Two of the bedrooms are located at one of the access gates and people did not close them lightly so you can be woken up easily. Other than that, the condo was very functional.
Thank you for the review. I am so sorry about the gate noise. The minute I saw your review, I contacted the homeowners association and had a new sound dampening mechanism installed on the gate. It is no longer an issue, so I am thankful that you let me know. If you are coming back to Austin, let me know and I will make it up to you on the next visit.
The Railyard Oasis is the perfect location for downtown staycations or event weekends like ACL, SXSW, Formula 1, UT Football, and so much more. Located just two blocks from the 6th Street Entertainment District, across the street from the Austin Convention Center, and in the heart of all of the bars, restaurants, and theaters that are downtown, this really is ground zero as for as Austin is concerned.
