traveler reviews for this houston townhome rental

Superb location, property, and host!

Review submitted: May 14, 2014   Date of arrival: May 9, 2014

Our family of 4 had an incredible stay in the Museum House! The location could not have been better - we walked daily to incredible museums and parks and restaurants, and we were an easy train ride to other area attractions and restaurants. We also very much enjoyed our time while in the house. It was comfortable and spacious enough to invite friends over, the kitchen was perfectly equipped (fun coffee mugs included), and there was daily access to the owner's pool and patio as well. The best part about the stay, however, was the host. Hans was so kind and helpful, it was almost as if we were visiting friends. We arrived to a welcome basket, and he was responsive to texts throughout our stay and sent several updates of local goings-on.

Although we were traveling with 2 young children, I would probably not suggest this home to all families. There is a lot of very valuable and very breakable art, and there are also 2 very steep staircases. Our kids were able to 'not touch', and we used a traveling baby gear company to rent stair gates and were fine, but like I said it might be more ideal for couples or families with older kids.

All in all, it was an excellent vacation and I recommend the museum house and Hans with 5 stars!

Recommended for: girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Hi Carrie, it was a real pleasure to host your family and thank you very much for your nice words. I hope more families discover Houston and the Museum District as a vacation spot. Please come again and I appreciate leaving the Museum House so spotless... Hans

Spectacular Stay

Review submitted: May 13, 2014   Date of arrival: April 30, 2014

We had a business function that led us to the Montrose district and we stumbled upon the Museum house. What an amazing place to stay, centrally located to so many great museums, restaurants and more. The owner was super hospitable and we had a great time. The house features an explosion of art, so if you are looking for a place to stay in the Houston area that has some pizazz this is the place for you!

Recommended for: families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Great house, great location, great rate and great owner!

Review submitted: April 15, 2014   Date of arrival: March 24, 2014

I stayed with my parents. my 14 years old and her friend and my 8 years old. We all enjoyed our stay. Some of the best museums in the country are within walking distance and its a short drive to the best shopping malls and other attractions (you should choose your time wisely to avoid Houston's traffic!). The house was great (from art works to the beds, towels, bathtub, kitchen, etc.). The only thing you should consider is a few stairs you should take to get into the house (if you have bad knees or hips). My mom has bad knees but could manage it! If you are planning to visit Houston, definitely consider this place. And Hans, thank you for your hospitality.

Owners response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. It certainly was a pleasure hosting you and your family and I am glad that you took advantage of the location of the Museum House. Please come back soon!
