Ours is a newly built condominium in 2013, two miles from University of Michigan’s main campus and 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 a nominal fee. 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
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.
Josie and Conrad were outstanding hosts! Their condo, a mere 5-10 minute ride into downtown ann arbor was beautiful, clean and super comfy. What stood out, while their home was great, were really the hosts. Josie and Conrad were exceptional for my first time using Air B n B. They had great stories from their international travels and where great breakfast buddies (kudos to Josie on a great bacon, eggs, tea, coffee - the works) provided privacy when needed, and Conrad even drove me into town free of charge 4-5 times over just 2 days. Going for a game, visiting the campus, or looking for friendly face amid a trip out of town - I hands down recommend them! See you soon, guys!
Josie (and Conrad) are tremendous hosts. We awoke to their delicious breakfast made for us. More importantly, they remained very flexible to our changing timeline during our stay and drove us where we needed to be which was an immense help. Their love of travel is evident and they are a wonderful couple to stay with.
My friend and I stayed with Josie and Conrad for a night while we were visiting Ann Arbor for a football game. They were such wonderful hosts, had awesome local recommendations and even provided a binder full of information about the city! Not to mention, Josie makes some pretty killer apple crepes :) I would definitely stay with them again!
Josie and Conrad were such excellent hosts! They were thoroughly invested in showing us a great stay. Josie prepared us a delicious breakfast each morning, and Conrad drove us to campus on game day and picked us up at night...so generous! The condo is brand new and in a quiet location just 2 miles from campus. Such a great stay! Thanks so much guys!!
The stay at Josie's and Conrad's apartment was an absolute delight. The two are VERY plesant company and courteous! Also the breakfast is amazing! If you're visiting the Ann Arbor area I can only advise to stay at Josie's and Conrad's.
I came to Ann Arbor for a conference, had an issue with hotel reservation, but thanks to Josie and Conrad I had a soft landing, Conrad picked me up from the airport and I got a lovely room at their nice & new house. Their friendly attitude made me feel at home. I was lucky to be there at the time Josie was baking super yummy chocolate cookies! Every day Conrad kindly drove me to the conference venue at the University and collected me afterwards.
I had a great time at Josie & Conrad's place and would definitely recommend the place.
Amazing hospitality and breakfast. Couldn't have been a better experience.
Josie is a wonderful hostess. She was kindly flexible about the arrival time, and greeted me warmly. Josie and Conrad were genuinely interested in their guest and the conversation took off right away. The condo is lovely and spacious, the room very nicely appointed, from the comfortable bed and decor to the breakfast selection sheet. There was even a seasonal floral arrangement in the private bathroom. Breakfast was delicious (“Savory Crepes”) with plenty of excellent coffee, accompanied by engaging conversation and insights about Ann Arbor. I recommend Josie enthusiastically!
Josie and Conrad are everything you would ever want in hosts, they went above and beyond anything I could have expected. The place was immaculately clean and very cozy. I even had my own well stocked private bathroom! Breakfast was GOURMET (and if you stay on a Sunday you might even have the pleasure of sharing the paper version of the New York Times with them). Communicating with them was a breeze. All in all the best AirBnB experience you could hope for.
Jeff and I had a wonderful stay with Josie and Conrad. We felt very comfortable and knew we were in good hands! Thank you both for your gracious hospitality and for helping us to have such a pleasant experience as first time airbnb ers! Go Blue!!
