Our first "vacation" in over 2 years - short, but made sweeter by the wonderful staff, great food, and AMAZING beds! Totally refreshed and ready to get back to work - and can't wait to get back to Austin in a few months for our next Brava House adventure. Easy walking distance to 6th St, Whole Foods, Book People and... More

The location was convenient for our purpose and the house is in a lovely neighborhood of Austin. The room was clean and comfortable (though it had a bit of an odd smell) and adequately appointed. But, we found the hosts inhospitable. We were greeted with "don't do" rules and a sense of hurry. While the breakfast that was prepared was... More

What this guest is referring to as "don't dos" occurred during breakfast of her first morning, when she showed up with people who were not staying at Brava House and expected them to eat breakfast. Unfortunately, there are rules set by the city who can be served at B&B's. I don't think I've stayed at a B&B that allows people... More

I had a truly lovely experience at Brava House, during my return to Austin after having moved away, 6 months prior. Brava House is located in my old neighborhood, so it felt as though I had never left. I had been wanting to stay, there, for a long time, and got my chance! My room was clean, well appointed, and...

The house is beautiful pics don't do justice, our room was spacious. It was quiet and peaceful in a great neighborhood. Robin's breakfast was homemade and very good, with a variety of items. You can eat in the kitchen or sit outside which we did once and it was great. They were friendly but stayed out of your way. We... More

Wow! Our stay at Brava House was nothing less than perfect. The rooms are beautifully furnished; the breakfasts were outstanding (but be on time !); the owners, Robin and Mary, were full of Austin hospitality; their assistance in finding things to do and see in Austin was tremendously useful; the neighborhood was filled with beautiful and historical houses; and the...

definitely will go back! Mary and Robin were so friendly. They provided us with a romantic, relaxing weekend in the Monroe suite. Breakfast is very informal and delicious! Don't forget Spooky the cat on the porch!

I wanted to love this B&B, I really did. The house is beautiful and charming and the outdoor space is lovely. It's in a great neighborhood. My room was nice enough, although the fridge did not work, some of the furniture and towels were worn, and the baseboards looked like they hadn't been dusted in awhile. I probably would have... More

We try to be as accommodating and welcoming as we can for our guests. This guest asked us to open breakfast early as she had a business meeting. We did and she was there all of 10 minutes maybe. When she arrived I offered her breakfast, asked how her evening was. She mentioned that she didn't think the fridge in... More

My husband and I went to Austin Memorial Day weekend. It was my first time visiting the city and having nothing on the agenda except to explore, eat and go to a concert at Circuit of the Americas on Sunday, we couldn't have picked a more ideal location. In the heart of Old West Austin, this lovely Victorian home was... More

I just made a first visit to Austin with my husband and five month old son - we are considering a move to the area. We chose Brava House based on location, willingness to take a baby, and high Trip Advisor reviews - we could not have been happier with the selection. For newcomers to the city, Clarksville is an...

This place is wonderful! We brought our two toddlers with us because there was a wedding and it was Easter weekend. They even hid Easter eggs in their front yard for the girls! We will definitely be back!
