My husband and I stayed at the Brava House a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The location was quiet, but conveniently located right near downtown. Everywhere we wanted to visit was only a couple minutes drive away. We definitely plan to go back! - Madison & Stuart Miller from Shreveport, LA

Great house. Good room with a lot of space. Cutesy feel, particularly the backyard. Super convenient neighborhood. Organized staff, but strict about breakfast arrival time! I would stay in the Brava house again if I were in Austin.

Brava House is comfortable and convenient and quiet. It has many good restaurants within walking distance. Nice neighborhood to walk in. Good hostesses. A very welcome change from the noise of downtown. We will stay there again Patsy and Paul Gray

This is my second time to stay here, and I had the same great experience. It is different from other B&Bs, as there is no "common room" to visit with other guests, except for the big room for breakfast. There are lots of outdoor spaces where one can sit and be neighborly, if desired. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet, and... More

Brava House was a great place to stay in Austin. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well furnished. The owners are very friendly and helpful, the location is cool (a bit outside the center), breakfast was tasty and the price was right. I had a package shipped there and it arrived too late, after I had already left. The... More

The suites are excellent. Each one has lots of character. The innkeepers are great sources of information and extend themselves to make your visit a pleasant one. I was impressed with the breakfasts which are definitely on the more elaborate and tasty end of "continental." The taxi ride to the convention center is under $10 so I would suggest this... More

My dad and I stayed at the Brava house for a weekend of exploring Austin. We loved the location just off 6th street and found the people to be very friendly and helpful with city tips and suggestions. Our room was clean and quiet and the breakfast was yummy!

Really nice B&B, perfectly located, with really nice and interesting hosts. Breakfast is great. Within easy walking distance to many great restaurants and music venues, Lady Bird Lake, Deep Eddy Pool, and Whole Foods. Very clean, quiet, and homey.

Had a wonderful three-night stay with my wife. Casablanca room was spacious with a nice sofa and coffee table. Private bathroom was acceptable -- showerhead on the the traditional clawfoot rub was low for this 6-2 guy, but I just bent down to shampoo. Excellent weekend breakfasts! Nice patio/deck area in back for hanging out. Close to public transit to... More

We booked and stayed in the Van Gogh room for 3 nights. When we arrived we were greeted and given the run down on breakfast, parking, room location and such. There was a beautiful rose lying on the bed. The room was freezing cold. Austin had closed school the following day due to the weather. The heat in our room... More

We strive to have our guests rooms ready upon their arrival, unfortunately the guest arrived over an hour earlier than the check in time they had indicated, we had just turned on the heat. Replacement towels are provided when requested if a guest does not turn them in we assume they are fine. Our tongue in cheek sign reminding guests... More
