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.
This house was perfect for our needs. Great location, walking distance to town, but super quiet at night. Me, my husband, and our children (6,9) immediately felt right at home and enjoyed spending time at the Fungalo. We had everything we needed and when we had a question or two, Mike and Kelly got back to us the same day. We cooked, watched movies, played games, and took lots of walks. There's a washer and drier, dishwasher, and AC. All were fantastic and made our stay easier. There were plenty of extras too like cards and some games...pads of paper etc... Highly recommend the Fun Bungalow!
This was a perfect place to stay for a week while moving my son to Michigan. The bungalow is really comfortable and has everything you could possible need for a stay . My son moved to an apartment in Kerrytown so it was easy to walk there and to walk into downtown Ann Arbor ..perfect location .
Communication with Kelly was really easy and she was quick to reply to any messages . The one time we managed to lock ourselves out ( entirely our fault !) she was round within half an hour to let us back in ! We couldn't ask for more in a place to stay and will definitely be back again !
We couldn't have asked for a better first experience with airbnb and specifically with Mike and Kelly! The house was exactly as advertised, clean and inviting. The host left a personal note to welcome us, and were friendly and responsive when we managed to lock ourselves out the second day. We're totally hoooked, and hoping to book this listing again in the future.
Mike and Kelly were fantastic hosts - we had everything we needed and felt right at home! What a darling house in a cute neighborhood close to everything. We'd stay here again!
It was a terrific experience! The house was charming, cozy, and comfortable. It was thoughtfully decorated and we had all the comforts of home. And it's all located in a wonderful neighborhood – perfect for walking and running and just exploring.
We had a wonderful experience in Ann Arbor at the Fun Bungalow. Communication with Mike and Kelly in the lead-up to our trip, and during the stay, could not have been easier. All of our expectations were met and we had a fabulous time. Thank you so much. We will definitely stay here again if a family trip or work brings us back to Ann Arbor. Go Blue!
The house was really terrific! The backyard has a small deck with a long picnic table and BBQ, which was perfect for a fourth of July party. The kitchen was well-equipped with pots, pans, etc and the whole apartment was exactly as pictured. Mike and Kelly were extremely responsive throughout!
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.
