Located in the heart of Old West Austin, we are the only downtown bed and breakfast. Brava House provides you a memorable stay in the Capitol City. Being one of Austin’s first Victorian homes built in the late 1880’s, and formerly the Southard House, we offer modern amenities to indulge you. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful surroundings of the house and neighborhood while still being within walking distance of the nightlife in downtown Austin, neighborhood shops, local restaurants, art galleries and parks. Brava House is an excellent base for Austin’s many festivals and events like SXSW, ACL, UT Football, UT Graduation and more.
