“And you would want to stay anywhere else because....?!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

This first time Austin visitor found this beautiful street and property to be just perfect in location, warm welcome from the owners, and comfort and beauty of the house and property. I can't imagine a more convenient location if your activities take you downtown, or anywhere within the urban core. Many shops, restaurants, galleries, music venues (and Whole Food's flagship store!) are within walking/biking distance. Breakfasts were great. Do not leave without trying the oatmeal! The Fitzgerald Room is a lovely, large suite. The large shower has two shower-heads, one for shorter and one for taller persons. Brilliant! Advice about the city and activities were always forthcoming and welcome from the owners. I will want to stay here on all future visits to Austin, I am sure!

We stayed at Bravahouse two years ago, couldn't wait to return. We stayed in the Garbo suite and it was fabulous, large living room, fireplaces in both the bedroom and living room. Robin had a homemade breakfast, great quiche, garlic cheese grits and a homemade lemon poppyseed pound cake. After breakfast it was a short stroll into the downtown area to the farmers market. Robin and Mary gave us some excellent tips on the food scene....wound up at J. Mueller's BBQ trailer, she saved us that 3 hour wait at Franklin's and the brisket was to die for. All in all a great B&B, that just keeps getting better!!

Here you are in a quiet Austin residential neighborhood in a wonderfully restored Victorian residence. A place of peace and tranquility. But a few steps away and around the corner you're at the center of the Live Music Capital of the world - Austin's Sixth Street. But you would never know it as the house and garden courtyard are a quiet retreat, an oasis. Robin and Mary are fantastic hosts always ready with helpful suggestions and ideas and ready to recommend great restaurants and debate the finer points of bar-b-que. Their breakfasts are a great way to start the day and the rooms are perfect. Go have fun playing hard in Austin and the Hill Country and come back here for comfort.

A bed and breakfast experience in historic architecture is often compromised by, well, historic architecture and reconstruction that stresses style over substance. Many such facilities focus on the bait and hook and not the fact that you will actually have to live in the space for at least a while. Not so at Brava House. The historic charm is there, the architecture ambiance intact. But, the functionality is superb. It works! Individual heat and air conditioning controls, large and comfortable separate dining area just a bit away from the rooms, great beds, spacious bath area, gracious and friendly service-- perfect! This was our first visit. We will be back. it is to be our "home" in Austin. Thank you, Brava House!

Room Tip: Fitzgerald suite extremely roomy and comfortable. And gorgeous!

This beautiful 19th century home is in a convenient neighbourhood - walk down to 6th street or just stroll around and admire the gorgeous older homes. We stayed in the Garbo room which had it's own living room - access to a comfy porch and even sitting out back on the patio. We like staying in more personal spaces and not always a hotel room. Conveniently located and Robyn was wonderful. All the rooms are unique - it's tough to decide!

Room Tip: We enjoyed having the Garbo Room for extra space and being on the main floor we didn't have to c...
