About this listing
This modern/vintage east side downtown home is fully remodeled and within walking distance to some of the hottest bars, restaurants, events, grocery stores, UT and yoga studios of Austin. Stunning kitchen and back yard with view of downtown Austin.
We have worked for months remodeling this amazing 1930s home and it is 100% redone on the inside, yet still retaining the 30’s charm with the original hard wood flooring, dining light fixture and paneled walls. It is truly a stunning home with a modern/vintage feel and open living space. Navasota house is completely furnished with absolutely everything you would need for a comfortable weekend or even a month’s stay. From a fully stocked kitchen to shampoo/conditioner dispensers, hairdryer and even Q-tips in the bathrooms, this home has it all.
The home has a massive master bedroom with a luxurious king size bed and french that open up to the back deck and garden with an amazing view of downtown Austin. The master bath hosts a dual vanity with a large soaking tub and a crisp clean feel that makes for a relaxing evening with lit candles.
The 2nd bedroom still has the original ‘school room’ windows that are lightly shaded by our trees in the front yard. The queen size memory foam mattress makes for an amazing night’s rest.
The sunny back studio is a quiet oasis for up to 4 people to sleep. With wood flooring, an armoire, full AC/Heat, two full beds and a large desk and computer space (don’t forget the WiFi) it’s a private and wonderful space.
Note: The studio is detached from the main house and does not have it's own bathroom.
The modern and bright kitchen will surely be the desired gathering place on your vacation. With four comfortable white chairs pulled up to the grey quartz breakfast bar, edison pendant lights, and a gorgeous cedar wood back splash this kitchen is anything but ordinary. Did we mention the view of downtown you’ll have from the kitchen sink?
The picnic style dining table also makes for a great place to gather for dinner, or play cards late into the night. The original dining light is a fun and unique addition to the home.
If you choose to spend most of your time in the private fenced back yard there is room for everyone. With a view of downtown and lights strung from the trees above you this is where you might spend much of your time. There is a patio dining table, seating for 8 there, a lighted umbrella for shade, and a grill for the chef of the group to cook up amazing Austin style BBQ. The back deck is truly an entertaining space.
We also have a small yard and garden for people to enjoy and adds a sense of serenity to the space. You'll feel like you’re anywhere but in a large city!
We can't wait for you to experience the Navasota House.
Feel free to use our BBQ, Guest House Studio, Garden, etc. The only thing that will be locked is our small storage space.
The home is electronic so you wont need to worry about keys. You will receive a check in email a few days or weeks prior to your arrival with all the information to access the home and other information.
Interaction with Guests
We live here in Austin and will respond quickly to any concerns or questions you may have during your stay.
Stunning view of downtown, quiet and quirky East Side neighborhood, walking distance to groceries, great restaurants, bars, yoga, events, UT, liquor store, Rainey Street and all that downtown has to offer. World famous Franklin BBQ is just around the corner!
We also created a 4 page list of all our favorite restaurants/bars and things to do in Austin. It took a lot of brainstorming but we wanted to share the best of the best with you! You'll find this list on the counter at the house, and feel free to take a copy with you!
And to add to the quirky-ness of this East side home you might just be lucky enough to meet our iconic neighbor, Miss Thomas. Feel free to chat for hours or cut her off. She does love Coors Light.

Isaac is kind, thorough and available. I needed to extend my trip and he instantly responded. The house is outstanding and masterfully appointed in ways most listings are not. Every detail has been well thought out and you won't be disappointed. Located in a great neighborhood where you can walk to eat, etc. One of the best places I've rented in Austin.
Great experience. Isaac provided a long list of instructions, tips, and recommendations via email prior to arrival and there was also a complete binder with local attractions/restaurants in the house. We were also thrilled to find a little surprise left for us in the fridge. Thanks Isaac!
House was very clean, most of the appliances appear to be up to date, plenty of beds, and the back porch is great. Location is a little off the main area, but most places are walkable and the Uber rides to 6th St. and Rainey were ~$5. Overall a great experience for our group.
Isaac provided lots of helpful information prior to our arrival, including a detailed set of check-in instructions. I felt very prepared and there were basically no surprises. The keycode lock system was very convenient and appreciated. We also made good use of the iHome and the back deck. The house was in a good location (super close to Franklin's!), but not much within walking distance. The house itself was clean and there were plenty of fresh clean towels.
Wonderful place. Isaac provided everything we needed. Very clean. Back patio rocks. Will definitely stay again
We had a wonderful time staying at Issac's home in Austin. The home was clean and was an ideal fit our group of 8, if anyone is looking for a great place to stay in Austin I definitely recommend this place!
We loved Isaac's home in Austin! The neighborhood was perfect, close to everything we needed, and the house was absolutely lovely. Isaac went overboard to answer our questions and to give us tips for eating well and getting around town. He was always really quick to respond, and super courteous each time. We would absolutely rent this house again.
Awesome house in a super convenient location. It was very clean and is well laid out for a group (We had 8). Beds are comfortable and the house stays nice and cool - which was a great way to recover from the heat! Miss Thomas is an excellent neighbor. She entertained us with her stories and blues music. Next time in Austin with a group, I hope to stay here again!

About the Host, Isaac
I am beyond excited to share my gorgeous 1930’s home with you!
In case you’re curious, a little bit about me:
I am originally from WY but have lived in many places over the years. I now call lovely Austin my home for a little over a year. Besides some warm summers, there is not much to complain about. I love this city!
You can often find me out and about exploring and being active. I enjoy biking the 10 mile trail around downtown, town lake/lady bird lake or hiking and getting lost in the massive green belt just west of town. I also enjoy wake boarding at Lake Austin and Lake Travis!
It is rare that you will find me cooking at home. All my favorite things to eat (pizza, breakfast tacos, BBQ, tex mex and beer) are within walking distance to Navasota house!
There are just so many great restaurants and things to do in Austin, I’ll probably never be able to get to all of them, but I think I'm off to a great start.
I also love to travel. I have lived in seven states and short stays abroad in Costa Rica and Sweden. I have visited 35 countries as well over the years. I live for adventure and meeting new people wherever I go. I think Austin has some of the friendliest and most interesting people to meet!
I am so excited to share my love of this Navasota home, its fabulous location and our amazing city with you. I even printed out a binder that stays at the house and has all my favorite restaurants/bars and things to do all typed out. There are copies for you to take since I know recommendations can make all the difference when visiting a new city! I want people to experience what I have been lucky enough to experience so far in Austin and truly believe this home and it’s location are the best here in Austin.
Have fun, travel safe and keep it weird :)
