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 Houston

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!

Eclectic Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful town home is tranquil and beautiful. 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

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful inside, just as the pictures posted show. Hans was very pleasant: met us as we arrived. 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!!

perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This house gave our group a perfect launching point to explore the area. We were able to walk to Hermann Park for the zoo, paddleboats and playgrounds. It was easy to run right out of the front door and find an easy 5 mile route to jog. Tons of museums within walking distance and plenty of restaurants nearby (and a grocery store and walgreens not too far). Plus, the metro rail is very close so you can get to many other places easily. The house was very comfortable, and the little extras like the snacks, computer, umbrellas, soaps and extra towels were appreciated. Hans was very welcoming and had the air mattress all set up for us which was very helpful.

This is a wonderful and unique townhouse located right within the Museum District of Houston.The artwork is just delightful and creates a very unique atmosphere! The living room, kitchen and bedrooms are all superb! It is within close walking distance of the museums and zoo and close to Rice University. The Hermann Memorial Park is a delight to walk around with the duck pond and little train that goes all through it! It is very close to the Medical District which makes it very helpful for those with medical issues that do not require stairs as there are a lot of stairs in this unit. It is also close to downtown for business related visits. There are several restaurants close by especially at Hotel Za Za which has a superb terrace restaurant that is five star rated. Hans was very attentive and did all he could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. He provided wine and Keurig coffees etc etc. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a lovely dining room table for four. It helps that his house is right next door with a lovely pool in a common shared area. I very highly recommend this lovely place!!
