Brava House is ideally situated within walking distance of many nice restaurants and downtown. The home (way better than a corporate hotel) is sparkling clean, the rooms are quiet and the above par breakfast is excellent way to start your day. The proprietor Nick pays attention to all details and is a great resource- he really is a wealth of...

Nick does an outstanding job making you feel like you are just a friend hanging out for the weekend. He makes a GREAT and varied breakfast each morning and loves helping you learn more about the area. We stayed in two different rooms, the Garbo and the Monroe, and both were terrific - HUGE and very clean. Nice feel to...

I usually book hotels for business travel but the hotels were all booked up. Brava House is in a quiet, peaceful B&B neighborhood close to town (about a mile from the capitol). My room was appointed with everything I needed, including a small fridge, sink, coffee maker, etc, The place is run by a second generation local, Nick. He was...

I would have given BRAVA House a 5-star rating except for one thing. This is the only place we have stayed in our very extensive travelling experiences where we did NOT receive a written copy of the bill upon leaving. We were told it would be emailed to us later. It has been over two weeks and still no email...

The owner/operator Nick could not have been more gracious. The rooms were very nice and well set up. In addition, Nick could cook up a breakfast that everyone would love. The B&B is centrally located near downtown Austin and very convenient for getting to restaurants and attractions of interest. There were only two little items that bothered us. First, there...

We enjoyed the Brava House so much, with such little time. The attention to the detail that they are working on is going to make this one special place, forever! I love each room, as our group rented the entire house! We gathered in the room upstairs that has a full kitchen to celebrate both a birthday and anniversary. We...

I stayed here during SXSW and I loved it! Clean, spacious, amazing breakfast and calm atmosphere. It takes approx. 30 mins to walk to Austin Convention centre. Thanks to Nick for being so helpful. I will definitely come back.

Experiencing a town like a local is now the in thing. Airbnb had opened up an entire market for it, which is great (this is the gig economy after all). But there's a big difference in a stay that is someone's side gig or hobby rather than their livelihood. It's what makes a stay at Brava House distinct. Across a...

I stayed here during sxsw and it was the perfect place! Close to the action but a get away from the madness. It was charming, calm, great breakfast that catered my vegan diet! Nick was very helpful! So happy I stayed here and will be back for future sxsw events!!! :)
