Brava House is a lovely B&B where you can experience living in a charming, quiet Austin neighbourhood, but still be close to downtown, where all the fun is. It really has the best of both worlds. We chose this place for its rave reviews, location and free parking. We booked the Van Gogh room, which is located at the back...

This is a well managed b&b, comfortable and well located. We were able to walk to 6th Street and beyond (Congress Avenue---you have to get past the bar scene to find good restaurants). The property is located in pleasant quiet historic neighborhood, and it's a lot of fun just to wander around looking at houses. Good lunch spots nearby. Good...

We stayed four nights in the Van Gogh room on the first floor, a newer addition to the historical house, with a private bathroom. It was as cozy as can be, with lots of light, quiet air conditioning, a tv, and small refrigerator. The home-made-from-scratch breakfasts were delicious. Nick is very knowledgeable about all things Austin, and that's a plus...

Our experience at Brava House was absolutely wonderful! Nick is a wonderful host, and the breakfasts he made were different and delicious each morning. The location is unbeatable. My boyfriend and I were there for SXSW, and we were able to walk downtown while still feeling like we were in a quaint little oasis. Newbies to Austin, Nick provided us...

Stayed three nights in the Monroe room. Quiet, quaint accommodations with ample room. Nick is a great host. Location is perfect for walks along the lake in the morning and for visiting many interesting shops and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

The Brava House is a delightful place to stay in Austin. It is super clean, and the second floor is like sleeping in the trees. Breakfast is yummy, and Nick is a wonderful host. Also it is close to many of Austin's venues. You cannot go wrong staying here.

Our stay was fantastic. Can't say enough about this super B and B. The accommodations were great. Super room that was clean and beautiful. The surrounding area is quaint with more beautiful homes and great area to walk. To us though the young man, Nick, who took the B and B over from his Mom is the best part of...

My husband and I stayed here last month for a wedding. The Brava house is in the perfect location from a lot of Austin's attractions-close to the fun, but far enough to be peaceful and "off the beaten path." Nick was very welcoming and personable. Our room was clean, spacious, with personality. I loved all of the unique, personal touches,...

Stayed 4 nights for a recent conference. Quaint and comfortable room in a very nice QUIET neighborhood. A great oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city, but convenient and easy to get to U of Texas campus. Enjoyed the one breakfast I was able to attend and talking motorcycles with Nick the proprietor. Highly recommended !!

The Brava House was a perfect place to call home for a few days while visiting Austin! The location is amazing, as it is in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance to Downtown and the Texas Capital. It is also very close to restaurants and bars on West 6th street. Brava house also offers free off street parking. Our room...
