My wife and I loved this Victorian home-turned-retro-B&B. The old house has been well-renovated while maintaining period-style finishes. The rooms have themes, ours was Casablanca, dressed up with dark hardwood, ironclaw tub, and a mosquito net over the large bed. (not to mention, air-conditioning) The location was ideal, near South Lamar. We walked to Whole Foods and shopping, though the...

Bravahouse is located in a very nice neighbor. If you like to walk, everything is close. Very quiet at night. The rooms are very clean and spacious, plenty of food for breakfast. The innkeepers were friendly, made us feel very comfortable. We will not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Robin and Mary. I

We arrived at night, and check-in was easy, as they had left a key for us. Our room was quaint and the bed was comfy. It was also great to have a little refrigerator in there, and a little sink with a coffee maker and coffee, etc., for the morning. Other than that, we did not find the stay to...

The Brava House Bed and Breakfast has a great atmosphere. The management there is awesome! They make you feel very at home while you are there and can recommend all kinds of places to visit while in Austin. It's a great location, you can walk to several restaurants and other local attractions. I was there on business and just got...

Brava House is simply the BEST in Austin! Robin and Mary run the most hospitable, friendly and comfortable B&B. I first stayed here on business in 2004 and I will not stay anywhere else in Austin. My family is also hooked. If you want superior service, the perfect location (close to all the fun stuff) and a personal touch -...

Overall, our stay at the Brava House was satisfactory but not of the quality that I look for when I stay in a bed and breakfast. There were several factors which contributed to this. Before our stay, we e-mailed the owners for suggestions of transport from the airport to the B&B since we would not have a car. They suggested...

My wife and I stayed at Brava House for three weekday nights in July 2009. Having lived in Austin for 15 years until recently, we selected Brava House given its central location, its charming decor, and the promise of a good "bed and breakfast". The proprietors couldn't have been more friendly and cheery -- just the type of Texas hospitality...

New to Bed and Breakfast Inns, we had a very fine stay at Brava House. It was great to have a home base in Austin with parking and in a quiet neighborhood, from which to explore Austin. What was really nice was that our guest room was independent, meaning that we had our own entry, bedroom and bathroom. Nice backyard...
