About this listing
Our colorful two bedroom home is the perfect landing pad for your A2 visit. Enjoy our quintessential Ann Arbor neighborhood: lots of character, a quick walk to lively downtown and a safe, comfortable place to relax. We love it here and so will you.
Our house comfortably sleeps up to five adults (1 bedroom has a double bed, the second bedroom has 2 twin beds and there is a super comfy couch in the living room, plus an air mattress if you don't want to sleep on the couch). The modern kitchen is open to the living room and is fantastic for small gatherings and sharing a meal. The kitchen is stocked with the essentials: pots, pans, coffee maker (K-cup and drip), blender, food processor, silverware, toaster, electric water kettle, dishwasher, and garbage disposal.
The main bathroom has a large glass and tile shower with an awesome shower head.
There is a small fenced in back yard and newly renovated deck with seating. There is also Weber charcoal grill for your use.
Our guests will have access to the entire house, driveway and yard. You will find an additional bathroom with a shower in the basement, as well as a washer and dryer. There is a 42" flat screen TV and a Roku player with access to Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, and more. Guests will be able to use wireless internet and there is even a laptop there if you need it.
The driveway can fit up to three cars and the street parking is free and plentiful.
Interaction with Guests
We'd love to meet you and show you around the house. We have lived in Ann Arbor for a combined 25 years, so we've got this hosting thing down.
If we're not able to meet you, we have a keypad deadbolt on the house so you can arrive at any time.
The Old West Side of Ann Arbor is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the state. Our street has very little traffic and our neighbors are super friendly. There is a large park at the end of our street and an evening walk through the charming neighborhood is always fun.
Ann Arbor has a very active bus system. Many residents commute to work on bikes and our house is within walking distance to most of Ann Arbor's attractions. ZipCar is also available in Ann Arbor, and there is a ZipCar home about a half a mile from the house.
No smoking indoors of any kind.
About the Host, Mike And Kelly
Mike used to travel frequently for work. Kelly joins Mike on these trips whenever possible, especially if they involve sunny climates or a beach. Both of them love exploring new places. Neither one of us normally writes in the third person.
Lately the work travel has died down, which leaves us itching even more to seek new adventures.
We have recently consolidated housing but could not stand the idea of getting rid of our Ann Arbor bungalow. The quaint west side neighborhood is quiet enough for a retreat, but only 8 blocks (less than 3/4 of a mile) from all the action of downtown A2. It's a great place for our out of town visitors and anytime we need a night out in Ann Arbor. Some of our best trips have been spent in airbnb pads and we are pumped to have a place of our own to share with other travelers.
