Reviewed 28 August 2010

The house and location were great - walking-distance (little long) from downtown/6th street/Congress. The logistics of getting "in" were glitchy since I never received a confirmation email after making the reservation online. Thankfully some fellow guests were there to help since the innkeepers weren't and the phone# they posted weren't answered. Other B&B's I've stayed in also usually host a...

We are sorry the guest had problems getting in, spoke with the guest the day before, sent her confirmation again as she said she did not have it. I explained how to check in as they were arriving after 9pm and I let her know we would be out for the evening. This review is somewhat perplexing as we received...

We have just returned from Austin and, although it was our first time at the Brava House, both Robin and Mary treated us like old friends. Together with unforgettable oatmeal, Robin and Mary offered many excellent tips about the city, restaurants to go to and places to see. Our room, the Casablanca, was beautiful and if our dog could speak...

This is a great place to stay. Very aesthetic and quiet. The room was amazing and the grounds were as well. It seemed to be in a very safe area of Austin with lots of trees and close to a great coffee shop, whole foods and a nice book store. I will definitely stay here again.

Very cool and well restored house in a relaxed and accessible neighborhood. Room was very clean, quiet and private. Breakfast with Robin and Mary was a great start to the day.. good food, info and conversation. When we return to Austin and there is room at the Brava House,, we will stay there again.

I made a last minute reservation and we showed up the same day. This is a no-fuss B&B. Not overly cutesy. Hosts were helpful, but not particularly welcoming-- They answered questions and offered suggestions, but weren't overly friendly-- I didn't mind, but some might. The location was ok, there wasn't much to walk to (maybe because it was really hot)...

One of the reasons I like to stay at B&B's is that I enjoy and appreciate historic homes. This one may have been built in the 1880's, but now it is covered in vinyl siding. The pictures on the web site were taken several years ago before some unfortunate remodeling -- picture reinforcement wire on the stairs instead of the...

It is a shame that this guest did not appreciate our remodeling efforts in our back deck area, we have thrown in some modern twists which most guests seem to really appreciate and have received many compliments on both the remodeled area and our beautiful new dining/kitchen area, which is separate from the B&B. In reference to the "porch incident"...

Brava House is in a wonderful location: Whole Foods, great shops and restaurants, wine shops, laundry, convenience stores. Although it's on a very quiet street, you can walk downtown in a few minutes. Well-priced, clean, nicely furnished - the hosts were helpful and hospitable, and the in-room book was extremely helpful. We look forward to returning to Austin and Brava...

We stayed here May 22 and May 23, 2010. Everything was nice - accommodations, breakfast, but just average. It was costly and nothing lacking, but nothing special also.
