Sandy's place was great. It was a super cute, little home in a nice neighbourhood. It is also with in walking distance to some nice bars and places to eat. It was perfect for a weekend away.

Sandy was a great host! Check in/out time was flexible, which made things super easy on us. She left the ac on for us so it would be cool when we arrived. Nice, fenced in backyard, basement with washer and dryer. We spent the most of our time in the house hanging out in the new sunroom playing Sorry (the boardgame). She's got the place set up nice and cozy and even supplied laundry soap and toiletries! It was a wonderful first airbnb experience!

Sandy was great. Close to downtown Ferndale restaurants. Great 1-bed/1-bath stay in Detroit.

I stayed for 1 month while in the area. The house is located in a great neighborhood with lots of things to do nearby. The house has everything you need to be comfortable during your stay. I would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed in Sandy's home for 1 month while we were in the middle of a long distance move. It is a small house, but was perfect for the two of us. We made good use of the kitchen & gas stove as well as laundry in the basement. The wifi worked well and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch with our laptops. There is room for two cars on the front of the driveway, which makes parking easy. Location was awesome - close to the highway and only a short drive to downtown Ferndale and Royal Oak. We loved exploring the area while we were there. It is also pet friendly and we were able to get a puppy near the end of our stay. The backyard is fenced in, which was perfect for playing with the pup. Sandy is very easy to communicate with and responds to questions or concerns promptly. My only recommendation for guests is to be aware that there is no central air (which is clear in the listing). There is a window air conditioner in the bedroom and the kitchen. On cool days or days with a nice breeze, opening the windows makes the house a perfect temp. The hot, humid days are pretty rough, though, because the units can't cool the whole house. We would definitely stay here again if we are back in Michigan!

Response from Sandy:
Sorry the A/C wasn't adequate, I will be adding another portable unit, thanks for the feedback, hoping that will help for future guests.

Sandy is a great host. She was very accommodating. She responded quickly to all my messages and will give you recommendations on what to do and where to eat if you are interested. Her place is quaint and cute and is in the perfect location. It is close to all the attractions in Ferndale/Royal Oak and just a short drive to Detroit. I would definitely stay again if I'm in the area.
