House uniquely offers (1) sleeping accomodations for up to 11 persons, (2) thoroughly upgraded house with classical design set up clutter-free like a hotel suite, and (3) location on the edge of campus and close to everything by bus or cab.
In the past we rented our home for football weekends, and expanded that for most of the year.
You'll find a cozy living room with HD TV and stereo opens to a modern kitchen. There are two first-floor bedrooms (with full bath), one in the basement (with another full bath), and room for a slumber party in the loft (four beds and an air mattress). The garage is Ping Pong Central and the back yard offers a fire pit and gaming area.
No pets or smoking in the house, please. No pets. Enjoy the carpet upstairs with your bare feet. Use the bath fans when showering. You can place returnable bottles on the back porch; they're worth $.10 each. Treat the home as if it were your own. Biggest rule: Enjoy yourself!
John was the perfect host: The house was perfect! Clean, warm and inviting. Two easy pages of directions (what to do w trash, tv directions, internet password, laundry, etc.). He even left us a pound of very good fresh local coffee. We wanted for nothing.
Ann Arbor is a fabulous college town, with tons of great restaurants, shops, night life, parks, and the university. We can't wait to come back.
Thank you John, well done!
John was an excellent host. He provided us with fresh ground coffee and Zingerman's bread for the morning! The house was clean and everything was in great shape for our weekend trip. I would definitely recommend his home to any friends.
John's house is perfect for a party of ten, especially with children. The second floor is nice & quite. The large amount of silverware are great for big party. The location has quite & nice neighbors. Moreover it is within walking distance to the Chinese restaurant Chia Shang. So give hands to John.
John's AA house was perfect for our post-holiday party of 10. Above all else, his rapid fire communication was a breath of fresh air compared to the many other hosts I contacted about properties in the SE Michigan area, who were at times painfully slow to respond, or unresponsive entirely. John was attentive to my needs and helpful in all aspects. Parking was ample, beds were comfortable, and John's laid-back personality put us all at ease. This was my first Airbnb experience, and I can't gush enough about it. Definitely will be back next year!
My family and I had a wonderful stay at John's place. It was the perfect size for my extended family and I to stay when we were in town for my grandmother's funeral. The living room has a great big couch. We were able to entertain out of town friends and family comfortably. I would definitely recommend John's place for a group get together.
Our group stayed at John's house and found it perfect. John was great to deal with leading up to the stay and was even nice enough to put a sign on the room we were staying in as I was arriving late. The house has been very nicely redone with new fixtures and appliances, is in a nice neighborhood and convenient to many places to eat and just a jog down Packard to downtown.
We had 10 people staying there for a weekend long workshop, most of whom had not met in person prior to arriving. We were all friends by the time the weekend was over and the comfort of the house contributed to that.
I can't think of a thing I would change and recommend anyone that needs a beautiful, well appointed place to stay in Ann Arbor stay here. This was my first experience with AirBnB and must say John has set the bar very high.
We had a great time staying here over homecoming weekend. The location was fantastic, and the house was great for 7 of us. The house was clean when we arrived, and John was very welcoming (we loved the Zingerman's bread)!
I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay near campus, and we hope to be back in the future!
