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.

We loved Isaac's house! It is in a great, up and coming neighborhood and was not too far from Downtown Austin and South Congress area. There were amazing restaurants and shops walkable from the house (if it's not too hot out). The home was clean, nicely decorated, and had everything we could have needed. The beds were also very comfortable.
Isaac was a spectacular host!! When we arrived the internet was out due to nearby construction but Isaac was amazing and helped us sort it out immediately.
Enjoyed our stay at Isaac's place. House looks just like photos. Master bed is extremely comfortable! Actually noted the brand of pillows and have already ordered for my home. Both bathrooms are very well done as is the kitchen. A couple of slight issues that were out of owners control.....Internet and cable worked perfect the first night. We could not get either the second night. Apparently the modem needed to be reset. Isaac stresses to call if there are any issues, but we decided it was not worth disturbing him over. Second morning of our stay the electricity went out as we were trying to get ready for work and clean the house. Again, out of Isaac's control. From other reviews I can tell these issues are not typical, and I would recommend staying this home!
We rented the house for 3 nights for business meetings at IBM.
The house was very clean, very well appointed and provided a great refuge after long meetings, etc.
The house was exactly as described and very comfortable.
The neighbor hood was good but the is a day care next door.
We would definitely rent this again for future trips/meetings, great location.
This house was PERFECT for 5 ladies in need of a college roommate reunion. Its an up-and-coming area just a few blocks to East 6th street (which is a lot more relaxed cooler vibe for some married old ladies) and Franklin's bbq on 11th. It's only a $10 uber ride to Rainey St and super close to downtown. Having 2 bathrooms was a huge bonus which I think is sometimes harder to find. The air-conditioning and ceiling fans were lifesavers in the 90 degree heat. The house is gorgeously furnished and the amenities were top notch. Fast Wifi! Issac is gracious, prompt, and communicative host. You can tell he is respected in his neighborhood because even his 90 year old neighbor lady looks after him.

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 :)
