    You could build a hammock stand. I'm not sure how the owner would feel about you drilling holes in the wall.

    In that case, I would use some masonry eye bolts like these.

    Hard brick? Soft brick? Solid brick? Brick with internal holes?...etc.

    These are some of the questions you need to answer before you can determine the requirements for masonry anchors.

    +1, check the wall before mounting any masonry anchors.

    Yeah if you're looking a brick veneered wall for example you might end up with a floor full of "building blocks"!

    Need to identify what you've actually got before anchoring to it.

    Make certain the mounting goes into the mortar between bricks. If it is a solid concrete wall you may get away with drilling any where, but if you drill into a brick that is a weak spot.
