Your Host



Detroit, Michigan, United States · Member since October 2011

Loves architecture and old stuff. Excited about historic re-purposing and house rehab. Currently working on restoring a 1920s Bank to it's former beauty so it can serve a meaningful role in the community! Estate sale enthusiast and mother of three amazing (adult) children :)

I like interesting/quirky objects, the apartments reflect this--I hope you'll enjoy the eclectic mix of furniture and knick-knacks. I'd love to point you in the right direction whether you want to grab a bite to eat, see some live music, grab a drink, or do something out of the ordinary-- just ask!

**Please note, my daughter & I managed the airbnb together before, you'll see her name (Alissa) if you go far enough back in reviews, on occasion she still helps out :)
