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.

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.
Loved the Fungalow! It was perfect for our little family vacation - great location, clean, and quiet, with a spacious backyard. A short drive (or walk!) from downtown and all the restaurants, and our baby loved playing in the yard and watching the neighborhood kids play soccer out in the street in the evenings. The place was stocked with everything we needed, and Mike and Kelly were always on-call (they had to rescue me when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the place!).
My mom, sister, and I stayed at the Fun Bungalow during visit for my graduation. We each had an exceptional experience. The pictures of the bungalow are accurate. The place is clean, inviting, and stocked with everything that you need (e.g., iron, hair dryer, umbrellas) and goodies (e.g., unused slippers, socks). I have since recommended this place for two of my friends who will graduate soon. The location is perfect. I used to live 4-5 blocks away from this place as a grad student. The neighborhood is just lovely - quiet and within walking distance to downtown. I am blessed that I stumbled upon this gem.
It was amazing to live in such a beautiful house! The neighborhood is nice and quiet, good for a morning walk. Kitchen is nice and big, we enjoyed a lot cooking in here! It is a good place to live when you visit a2 and especially the university.
Mike and Kelly were superb hosts, and their house was just perfect for our stay in Ann Arbor to visit family and friends. Next time we are in the area, we would love to stay there again!
I love being able to stay at a place that is clean, comfortable and easy. This is precisely that. Mike and Kelly were easy to contact if we had any questions. This is a very reliably fabulous rental with a great location :)
Mike and Kelly's Fungalow was a great place to stay in Ann Arbor. It was super close to everything and was a perfect place to spend the week. Mike and Kelly are awesome hosts! I felt very welcomed and knew they were available if I needed anything. Highly recommended!
Mike and Kelly were wonderful hosts. The house was very comfortable and in a great neighborhood close to parks and downtown Ann Arbor. We would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Ann Arbor.
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.
