A perfect place to stay while visiting Detroit! A spacious and newly renovated two bedroom apartment, that comfortably sleeps up to eight people. Aprox. 900sq. ft. and safely located on the border of the Corktown/ Mexicantown neighborhoods, just minutes away from the heart of downtown Detroit.
One of the most densely populated enclaves in Detroit. Almost anything you need can be found within ½ of a mile: the Ambasador Bridge to Canada, La Gloria Bakery, Astro and Café con Leche Coffeehouses, CVS Pharmacy, etc. Throw a rock and you will hit the Warren and Wetmore/ Reed and Stem designed Michigan Central Station, the abandoned train station that may well be the most photographed building in Detroit ( situated across the street from the world famous Slows BBQ.) Honeybee Market on Bagley St. is the local’s favorite (they have the best guacamole). Just a block from many awesome restaurants: Los Galanes (get the cazuela de mariscos), Evie’s Tamalies, Xochimoco (open till 2 every night), and Taqeria Lupita (get the al pastor tacos)

Séjour parfait chez Kristin, appartement confortable, propre et bien décoré. Logistique simplifié pour récupérer et laisser les clefs. Je vous le recommande !
I had a great stay at Kristin's. It was situated near the heart of Corktown and Mexicantown, the place itself was clean and well-kept, and great communication from the hosts made the check-in and check-out process painless.
As titled, the apartment is indeed awesome, and the hosts kind and communicative. (Expect rapid response to your questions and logistical coordination needs). It has all the amenities needed, it is spacious, and it is relatively close to most major attractions in Detroit. It is located on the border of what seems like a potentially unsafe block, but this is probably true for most areas of Detroit these days. We were there with our kids and did not threatened in any way. In fact, the place is a short walk away from great Mexican restaurants, a few minutes drive from a terrific produce, and 3-4 miles from major Detroit attractions.
It's not a 5-star place because of the car noise level. Situated near a highway, there is no escape from noisy traffic. In the living room this was more of an ambiance than a disturbance. However, both bedrooms are noisy, with one of them particularly noisy at night. I suspect that after a few nights you can get used to car traffic sounds, but it was somewhat challenging for a brief stay.
Aside from the noise, I would recommend staying in this apartment.
A gem of a place in the city of Detroit. Kristin's place is nicely decorated, clean and a great size. Made check-in and checkout very easy. Would definitely book again!
My first AirBnB experience and it was very nice. Great location for me and the apt was clean and comfortable. I'll stay there again when I'm in town!
We had a great time at Kristen's place! Her caretaker was the sweetest woman ever! Such a wonderful trip, would surely stay again! The place was very clean and cozy.
Our stay at Kristin's place was excellent. We were warmly welcomed by Heather the caretaker and the place was in perfect order. Everything we needed was available. The accommodations were very comfortable and the location is excellent, easy to find, and close to many places of interest. Many thanks to Heather for her help and to Kristin for providing a great place from which to visit Detroit!
Nice modern place with a bit of old school charm. Close to downtown and freeways, great central location!
Here's what I posted on (website hidden) about my stay: Nothing fancy but at $70 @ night I'll take this Airbnb two-bedroom apartment over a hotel room at twice or triple the price any time. A hotel room may have a fridge but never a note-on-the-fridge like the one below. (I guess there's no way to post a photo with a review, but I snapped the welcome note on the fridge that was helpful as well as welcoming.) Good wireless and even some nice speakers to connect your phone or laptop to if you bring your own music. This place is especially handy if you're spending time in southwest Detroit, as I was, but there's so little traffic in Detroit that it's a quick shot to downtown or anywhere else in town. Bear in mind that the city does not plow sidestreets -- and nobody seemed to be shoveling sidewalks -- so prepare yourself for some careful navigation by car and on foot.
Kristin's place was absolutely wonderful. There were 4 of us sharing the space and it was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated.
Heather, her property caretaker, was there when we arrived and was very hospitable. She showed us around the apartment and gave us an overview of the neighborhood and city highlights.
I would highly recommend staying here the next time you're in Detroit!
