The Space

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). The open 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, blender, silverware, toaster, dishwasher, and garbage disposal.

The main bathroom has a large glass and tile shower with an awesome shower head.

There is a small back yard and 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, Aereo, Pandora, Hulu Plus, 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.

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.

  • Mike and Kelly's "fungalow" was perfect -- really cute, super clean, in a great location, and a charming neighborhood. They were super easy to plan with and everything was turnkey. We had a great time at their house, and it made our 4th of July visit to Ann Arbor even more wonderful.

  • This clean and uncluttered place is in a wonderful neighborhood near parks and walking distance from downtown. We found it kid-friendly, too, and loved being able to use the covered table in the backyard. Mike and Kelly were always responsive and kind, hosting us two separate times in the space of a week or so. The house was full of thoughtful touches--coffee, wine, toiletries. We are so happy to have stayed here and would come back in a heartbeat.

  • The house and neighborhood met all of our expectations. This was our first air bnb experience and it was great. Downtown is definitely walkable. We have two small children and there is a playground right around the corner. The street is quiet. The house is cute and comfortable and the backyard is a nice bonus. Mike and Kelly were great hosts. They are quick to respond.

  • Dandy two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow! Comfortable beds—often not the case in rentals.

    Nicely remodeled and functional kitchen with window over sink looking into backyard. My wife & I put the icemaker to the test during cocktail hour(s) and it kept up with us.

    Kitchen opens into living room that is bright, roomy, and comfortably furnished.

    Off the kitchen is a covered patio into the backyard that is fully fenced and comes furnished with a rabbit that we’d see about every other morning. We’d step into the yard and the rabbit would head for ... what ... higher or safer ground.

    Great street with very little traffic. Neighbors in both directions are friendly and out and about during the daylight hours. Would (email hidden) to live full time.

    Washer/dryer (new equipment) in basement—greatly appreciated.

    Easy access to downtown Ann Arbor with all of the goings on.

    We’ll rent again when we can.

  • We had a wonderful experience during a long weekend trip. Mike and Kelly were both very friendly and communicative and absolutely helpful in answering any and all of our questions. The house is well-laid out and very comfortable. Every detail was thoughtfully attended to - they even provided locally roasted (and delicious!) coffee.

    We will look into the internet for sure. We have never had that complaint, so we were unaware. Thanks for mentioning it.

  • Great location! Cute house. Very comfortable and convenient. We enjoyed our stay at Mike and Kelly's place. We had a difficult time checking in our first night, but Mike and Kelly responded quickly and fixed the problem.

  • I cannot even begin to explain how fab this bungalow in Ann Arbor is...as well as the owners Mike and Kelly! We arrived and they touched base within a hour of check in just to see how everything was and if we needed anything. When we arrived I have to admit that the home is more beautiful than the pictures. The neighborhood is great and we loved the street we were on as well. The home had everything we needed...and also had items we didn't know we needed. They even gave us some great places for dinner and called right away when we could not figure out the internet. It was our sanctuary and home away from home!

    It was a bird and it has found new housing :)

  • Just to add to my previous reviews, Mike and Kelly are great hosts. Their home is clean and comfortable for one night or one month.

  • Absolutely lovely home. Kelly was extremely friendly and helpful and the house is super cute and very clean. Great location in a nice, family-friendly neighborhood. We will definitely try to stay here again next time we're in Ann Arbor.

  • Kelly was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The house was very clean and well represented. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. There was a lovely welcome note that left instructions, and provided us with info we needed while in town- such as cabs! The location was perfect, as we were only a short 10 minute walk from downtown. The house had a lot of little extras that made the stay very comfortable, from extra towels left out, to travel size toiletries!
    This was my first airbnb experience, and I was very pleased! Would definitely stay at the fun bungalow again!

About
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'(email hidden) 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.
