About Hans

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 Hans chose Museum District

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!

What makes this Townhome unique

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!

The art collection alone is incredible , it provides an eclectic and fun vibe unlike any other property we have ever experienced. My husband and I stayed alone at the property while doing a business project for a new store opening in nearby Rice Village. We have stayed at ZAZA Hotel in Houston before and noticed that this town home rental named Museum House is in walking distance to ZAZA , and we did enjoy a lovely lunch one day at ZAZA . The location of Museum House is perfect for any reason in this area of Houston --- the Museum District / Zoo , the many nearby Hospitals , or a business reason such as we had. The master bedroom is furnished with a Versace bed . The town home is three levels accessed by stairs. Hans was a gracious host . Our stay at the Museum House was for 3 days. We very much recommend this incredible stay in a very quiet neighborhood .

                                                                  Great Place - as advertised

He had a Final Four packet made out, took time to go over food and attractions with us, and showed us around the house. This home was clean and well maintained. Daily morning walks in this area were refreshing. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home during our trip!!
