Owner info

About the owner: I am from Germany and live in Houston for over 35 years. I love it in Houston and would not move to any other place. I live next door to the Museum House which makes it really easy to contact me if have any questions or need anything. I can help you make your trip the most enjoyable one you ever had.

Why the Owner Chose South Central Houston, Houston, TX, USA:
This property was designed buy an architect from South Africa and has won many architectural prices and awards. Contemporary in design and very functional, yet cozy and relaxing. Plus, lets not forget the fantastic location!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I can not stress more the perfect location of the Museum House. It's central to most everything in a diversified neighborhood. It's contemporary but yet cozy and you will enjoy the feeling of the open space. I personally attend to all the details from the most comfortable bedding to a toothbrush, slippers and a welcome bottle of wine. There is only one luxurious MUSEUM HOUSE!
