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!!! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Brava House. The room was furnished with beautiful antiques and the bed was comfy. Nick fixed a yummy breakfast and I enjoyed it with the company of other guests. The coffee was ground from fresh beans. I highly recommend Brava house for that personal touch.

We can't say enough about our experience at Brava House with Nick. His warm welcome, attention to detail, friendliness and helpfulness is extraordinary...everything you hope for in your travels. The location is amazing! From this exceptionally charming neighborhood, we walked to local shops and cafes, the Capitol, and South Congress stores. As a Convention attendee, it was an easy drive...

My husband, my two adult children and my brother in law stayed in three rooms at Brava House. I loved most everything about the house, the neighborhood, and Nick. You get a little slice of a very pretty neighborhood before you trot down to downtown, etc. We walked about 8 miles a day, as Austin is pretty large if you...

The spacious, well furnished rooms were perfect. The suite had lots of extras - two tvs, fridge, microwave - and felt elegant, but not stuffy. It was easy to find and several spots we wanted to visit were nearby. I love animals and was delighted to meet Sam, Spook and Daisy. Sam in particular obligingly posed while I brushed up...

Whether you are visiting Austin for business or vacation, please check Brava House for availability! Located in the Downtown-adjacent neighborhood of Clarksville, this beautiful Victorian home is an awesome alternative to a hotel. Don't think twice - book it! The home is beautifully maintained & furnished, and Nick and his fabulous team know the meaning of hospitality. The historic neighborhood...

Nice and spacious old house in the beautiful Clarksville area. Rooms have old time character and furniture with modern bathrooms. Breakfasts are tasty and give a great opportunity to discuss with other guests in the same communal table. Nick is a great host, who takes good care of his visitors.

This is a restored Victorian guest house hosted by Nick and his wife who were very nice and welcoming. It’s a departure from the cookie-cutter motel accommodation and the bed and furnishings were comfortable, but the shower setup, within a claw foot bathtub, required a bit of maneuvering to avoid slipping and to adjust temperature and spray. Highlight was the...

This bed and breakfast shines in every category you hope for in a B&B experience. Our host, Nick, was an exceptionally welcoming, accommodating, gracious, and personable young man who has a real gift for genuine hospitality. And he's a phenomenal cook (which he credits to his mom's training). The breakfasts far surpassed the quality and quantity of breakfasts at any...
