Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: After years spent in the property management and interior design business, I started The Lux Haus brand with the passion to create luxury rental properties that are both comfortable and stylish and rival any hotel stay in downtown Austin. I love traveling and have spent many great trips in luxury hotels and know what it takes to create that experience for our guests. It was with great passion and hard work that the company was created, and I hope that you enjoy my properties as much as I do!

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
I visited The Ashton building while still under construction and knew that it was a perfect location to start my business. The location can't be beat for enjoying all that Austin has to offer! It is one of the highest residential towers in the city and features condo-grade construction, a management team that I couldn't be more happy with and friendly residents to share the space with.
