The Space

Restored and renovated home in the Old West Side Historic District. Scenic 10 minute walk to the Main St. area full of fine restaurants, art galleries, microbreweries, boutique shops, The Ark, Yellow Barn, and other music venues, special events, etc. The University is another 10 minute walk past Main St. We are right at a bus stop (route 12) and on a street with a bike lane. It is a 5 minute walk to Eberwhite Woods (forest preserve). Easy drive to Stadium St. with a wide variety of stores and restaurants.

Private guest bedroom upstairs with queen sized bed, second guest bedroom upstairs with a full sized sleeper sofa, and a recently finished basement with queen sized sleeper sofa. We can host up to 6 guests if we are here and 8 if not (queen sized bed in 3rd bedroom). Clean linens and towels provided.

Finished basement with travertine bathroom and 60” LED flat screen. No TV channels/cable, but the flat screen connects to the Internet for Netflix, etc. We have a cable so you can hook up your PC laptop, along with Mac adaptors (both 2008 and 2013 styles), and a separate cable for external speakers.

Fast WiFi (30 Mbps download), full kitchen, dining room, living room, back deck with outdoor furniture, tree shaded back yard with raised fire pit. Basic breakfast supplies available on request (coffee, cereal, yogurt, fruit - let us know your preferences), also easy walk to Jefferson Market and Fleetwood Diner.

We live in two places (in different cities), so both, one, or none of us will be home depending on the schedule. We have a one-year-old cat that may be there if we are.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The hosts were quick to respond to all my inquiries and provided detailed information on arrival, entry, facilities, etc.. The neighborhood was nice, and only a short walk to get to the restaurants downtown. The house was clean, nicely funrnished, and welcoming. We were very happy with our experience.

  • I did not have contact with the Host during my stay except for email updates. Their schedule and ours was not easy to coordinate. The room and home were exceptionally clean. Very quiet neighborhood. Directions and other information was clear and precise. Over all a very pleasant stay in Ann Arbor, Mi was had
    due to this fine facility.

    Response from Daniel And Jessica:

    Hi Garey, thanks for the feedback! We usually give guests a choice of where to stay, they sometimes do chose the basement. We were in the middle of traveling (only stopping in late at night to sleep), our Summer schedules are quite variable.

  • This was an impromptu trip for me to get to visit with some cousins. I wish I had more time, as the neighborhood was very nice and walking distance to downtown. The patio was a great place to chat at night. Dan was a great host, and very accommodating. The place was clean and comforting. Thanks for everything.

  • Our first experience with Airbnb was terrific. The home was comfortable, clean, and charming with historic character. We loved it! The neighborhood was so convenient to downtown and the University of Michigan which was a huge plus!! Daniel and Jessica are wonderful hosts. They responded to our questions before and during trip quickly, helping us out all along the way. We had the pleasure of meeting them on our last day which we really enjoyed!

  • Thanks so much Daniel & Jessica for welcoming us into your home. The instructions were great. The accommodation was super lovely. We only wish we had more time to spend there. Your thoughtfulness and little touches with towels, toiletries, a clean & comfortable accommodation, access to internet and tv, access to kitchen, the little froggies, gnomes, plants, maps, neighborhood news, lantern to see the lock box and christmas lights to find the house, easy to reach for questions, and rapport with neighbors... all amazing! We hope to stay with you again the next time we're in Ann Arbor! :)

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Daniel and Jessica's lovely home. We were pleased to be greeted by such a clean, cozy, and comfortable home. The neighborhood is comfortable and quaint, and we very much appreciated being able to walk to the local restaurants downtown. If we are ever again in Ann Arbor we would rebook in a second. Thank you, Daniel and Jessica for making our stay so pleasant.

  • Our stay was perfect, comfy beds and quiet neighborhood. Although we didn't actually meet our hosts, they communicated promptly with us to make sure we had everything we needed and we never felt like they were far away.

  • Daniel and Jessica were awesome hosts! They have a beautiful house in a really wonderful neighborhood. They kindly took the time to suggest good places to eat and gave us a solid idea of life on the old west side. We look forward to visiting again.

We are an academic couple that enjoys travel and adventure, everything from art museums to the great outdoors. We really appreciate having Ann Arbor as our primary residence and all of the cultural opportunities that it provides. There is always something going on in town and the university hosts many free events. We will be glad to share advice on sights, travel, etc.
