... quickly lost car#2 in the rearview mirror. Somehow we ended up west of town at Washington Park. Honestly, we had real intentions of not stopping until we rolled down the windows at the International Rose Test Garden and stopped and smelled the roses!! Wow, wow, wow! You get my sniff?! This variety pack of color was unbelievable at twilight with names to match every rose.

There was a burger joint with the queue coming down the street :) this is definitely the area I'd like to live in or along the lake front! From there I walked up congress avenue to an Irish bar for a spot of lunch - they even let ...
... capital of the world" title. This morning was spent slowly puttering around the hotel, doing laundry, and observing Austin from my own meditation space on the 12th floor patio. In the afternoon I went on a hike through South Austin, which is a really neat mix of small shops, quiet neighborhoods and community art. The highlight was a small bridge into which a local artist had embedded mirrors ...
... downside to the experience for me was that the walkway itself is very narrow, and you can't really just stop and enjoy hanging out without getting in someone's way. It seems like the whole walk was built to have you either keep moving, or spending money at a restaurant or shop. I'm sure that's what they had in mind, but it would have been cool for it to be a little more relaxed and not so focused on having you spend money.

Historical Traveler Reviews Brava House Bed And Breakfast Austin
Great Place, Great Hosts!
As managers of a B&B, my wife and I understand what goes into running a quality Bed and Breakfast. The Brava House did not disappoint. We were in Austin for a wedding, and while other visitors were staying at hotels that cost more money, we had the pleasure of far more ammeneties, a larger suite and fantastic breakfasts. I can not imagine staying anywhere else in Austin on future visits. Thank you for a great stay!
Wonderful home and neighborhood
Great accommodations. Antique furnishings and linens lovely, not like Martha-Stewart-on-Steroids. Loved the tree-lined neighborhood, easy walk to downtown and 6th. Off-street guest parking a plus. Breakfast was just what we needed after heavy steak and BBQ dinners in Austin's great restaurants.
I've stayed in nicer B&Bs, but really nothing to complain of. One thing to note is that it's not really within walking distance of downtown.
Truly an oasis
During my stay at Brava House this past weekend I felt more like a friend who had come to spend the weekend rather than a paying lodger. My suite was comfortable, clean, and peaceful. Breakfast was outstanding. Truly an oasis of serenity in the heart of Austin, my Brava House experience provided me the environment of a much-needed getaway for some true relaxation. Brava House has become my new "home" in Austin and I look forward to returning when possible.
Wonderful B&B in great location
This B&B is in a great location central to everything in Austin. The staff went "above and beyond" in every aspect. The accomodations were outstanding and breakfast was fantastic each morning. We had originally planned on staying 2 nights but extended our stay to 5 nights. I highly recommed Brava House to anyone staying in the Austin area.
Great B&B tucked in the city
We stayed at Brava House and had a great time, between the fireplace in the bedroom and the great breakfast, we could have stayed forever.
Home away from home
My fiance and I had a wonderful time at the Brava house. We spent two relaxing days here enjoying the ambiance and morning breakfast. We choose the Casablance room for $109/nt it was a great deal for location and breakfast included in the downtown area (most averaged $189/nt). Location was great in quiet upscale neighborhood in a very trendy side of town. Great location to everything you need to do in Austin from Downtown, Town Lake, State Museum, Capitol and Whole Foods and easy access to other popular destinations. We drove a lot but you can easily walk to a few of these places. We loved the Casablanca room! It was Morrocan style with 4 poster bed and canopy with silk red sheets and comfortable pillows. Robin, the inn keeper, took great care of us....and even recommended us to a few local spots around town. There was always a great variety at breakfast above the traditional continental breakfast menu. We sat near a tranquil pond on our first morning and had breakfast in our room by a beautiful open bay window. The room is well maintained with wooden floors and valuted ceilings and great air condition and classic clawed tub that you sometimes see only in the movies. We really enjoyed it and would love to come back again. We definitely would recommend it to any of our friends and to anyone who wants a quick romantic weekend getaway in a great city like Austin.
Great Get-Away in a Busy City
We chose BravaHouse based on what we read on the web. We were not disappointed. Although located just west of downtown Austin and in an urban area, you still feel like you have "escaped" the busy-ness of life. BravaHouse offers a great place to just kick back and relax if you want or as a place from which you can explore all parts of austin as it is close to the downtown as well as major thoroughfares. Yet it is quiet and secluded.
If you desire an urban setting with the feeling of seclusion along with southern charm and hospitality, try BravaHouse.
Beautiful spot in Austin!
You have a beautiful spot here in Austin! We loved our stay in Brava House. Thank you for everything! We will certainly stay here again whenever we are in Austin.
