relaxing getaway

Review submitted: January 26, 2014   Date of arrival: January 23, 2014

Oh my God! What a beautiful home---it is SO much better than the pictures, you truly have to see it to believe it. Hans, the owner, met my daughter and me upon arrival and chatted about how great the city of Houston is for sightseeing, cuisine, the arts and sporting venues. He patiently explained how we did not even need to drive anywhere---we could walk to the museums and take the light-rail almost anywhere!!! We journeyed to the IMAX theater and visited the planetarium and the butterfly exhibits. We returned to the most comfortable home with an incredible ambiance. My master bedroom was immaculate and the enormous jacuzzi-tub was so relaxing after the cold freezing rain drove us inside. My daughter had the loft off the living room and was warm and cozy and kept in-touch with her friends using the wi-fi available for her laptop. We watched a movie together and I drifted downstairs to my sumptuous suite,where I read on the most comfortable king-sized bed with an incredibly soft pillow-top mattress! I awoke the next morning after a blissful sleep (it is wonderfully quiet in the entire Museum house). The owner has a Keurig coffee-maker with some wonderful choices as I leisurely read for a while. We had plans to visit with my older daughter and her husband for a late lunch and they also loved our new home---so much beautiful art work to see (everywhere) at the Museum house. Our stay was much too short for me, but I look forward to returning very soon. Hans has a real jewel for those who seek an exceptional home-away-from-home. The house is very clean and comfortable. Although we did not prepare any meals, a full kitchen has everything you could ask for. I promise you wont be disappointed if you stay here. Hans even presented me with a bottle of wine upon arrival----Cheers!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you so much Karian for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you and your daughter and I am so happy that you enjoyed the Museum House and got some rest. There will be an other bottle of wine waiting for you at your next

Extraordinary rather than ordinary!

Review submitted: November 30, 2013   Date of arrival: November 23, 2013

We had a wonderful stay at the museum house. It was comfortable for my husband, myself and two of my daughters. It is convenient to Rice University, Rice Village, numerous museums and restaurants. The home is lovely with some stunning art. I would strongly recommend for an out of the ordinary stay in Houston!

Recommended for: families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you Mary for your kind words. It was great meeting your daughters - just too bad that it was a bit cold to enjoy the pool and patio. Welcome back anytime and thank you for your stay!
