About this listing
Ours is a newly built condominium, two miles from fabulous downtown Ann Arbor. Your bedroom and bath have high ceilings and everything’s sparkling new. Join us for scrumptious homemade breakfast and rely on us to get you to nearby locations.
There is a queen size bed and wifi. The draperies close to make the room dark and cozy. Your private bath is directly across the hall and has a tub and shower combination.
We provide you our personal taxi service. Conrad is retired and happy to drive you to nearby destinations, and then pick you up again -- that service is included in your price. He’ll pick you up and drop you off at Metro Airport for $50 round-trip or $30 one-way. No need to rent a car for your stay in Ann Arbor, whether it’s for a game, visit the kids at school, or simply to hang out in one of the most progressive and diverse cities in America.
I enjoy making a healthy and hearty breakfast each morning for our guests and find it a perfect time to get acquainted. Feel free to enjoy the screened-in balcony any time of day, use our laundry or put your own groceries in the kitchen.
A bus stop is a short walk away and is a straight shot into downtown Ann Arbor on Liberty Street, one of the main roads in the area. Town and campus are easily accessible from here by walking or biking also. Nearby you can walk to grocery stores or a wide variety of restaurants, including Zingerman’s Roadhouse. Here’s a breakdown of places and their distance from your room in our home:
Central Campus & Downtown: 2 miles
“The Big House” Michigan Football Stadium: 2 ½ miles
University of Michigan Hospital: less than 4 miles
Shopping center with Kroger and eateries: 1 mile.
Interaction with Guests
In the past several years we have used airbnb for lodging and had wonderful experiences, so now that we have our brand new condo, we want to pass that along to other nice folks. Come visit! We are available during your stay to recommend sites and activities, or simply to chat. And of course, Conrad's the driver for your needs while in town. I love to have cooking partners, so if that's your thing, we can have fun that way, too.
The condo locates in a quite neighborhood. Josie and Conrad decorated it in a stylish way. Our room is clean and looks exactly the same as pictured. Josie is very welcoming- we arrived midnight due to the flight but she insisted to get up and show us around. My friend and I enjoyed the stay very much. Breakfast is also DELICIOUS!
I had a fantastic stay with Josie and Conrad. They are both lovely people and helped make my stay very memorable. The location is convenient, and the room is comfortable. The finishing touch- a delicious home-cooked breakfast included in the price!
Conrad and Josie were wonderful hosts. So accommodating and fun to be around. We were in Ann Arbor for the Ann Arbor Summer Fair. Josie made a custom breakfast every morning that fueled us for a day of selling. Conrad taxied us back and forth to the show so that we were able to not have to worry about finding parking. What a team!
Conrad and Josie were excellent on all counts--hospitality, breakfasts, accommodations,conversations, and, imagine, local taxi services. We had a fine 4-day stay.
This was a wonderful welcoming experience. Joise's breakfasts were the best and may have ruined my daughter for my eggs!
Everything was as described and I whole heartedly recommend them.
Josie and Conrad were absolutely wonderful! Their place was immaculate, bed was comfy, and breakfast was delicious. They did everything to make me feel at home. It was also a lot of fun hearing about their travels around the world, and about Ann Arbor.
This was a wonderful stay, by far one of my best experiences using AirBnB. I made a reservation just a few hours before arriving. They not only accepted but rearranged their evening so they could be present when I arrived. They had great suggestions on where to go in Ann Arbor and tailored their suggestions to my interests. The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast and lovely conversation before I hit the road. I would really say Josie and Conrad go above and beyond and I would highly suggest staying with them while you're in Ann Arbor.
About the Host, Josie And Conrad
Conrad and I are international house sitters and travelers. We have had wonderful experiences staying with Airbnb hosts in Paris, all over Spain, San Francisco, and Charleston, South Carolina. Because we finally settled down in our beautiful new condominium in Ann Arbor, Michigan, we want to return the favor and host other travelers.
Conrad's retired and I freelance write. We're simple, quiet people who want to enjoy friends, family, and grandkids -- and an occasional house sit in the U.S. or abroad.
When we travel, we make no reservations and love the adventure of getting lost and immersing in a culture. One of our house sits was on the side of a remote mountain in southern Spain. The home was off-the-grid with no neighbors. We loved the adventure and would do it again.
As hosts or guests, the main thing is to connect with people. If you are coming to Ann Arbor, we welcome the opportunity to get to know you.
