About this listing
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's home was perfect for our group. The house had more than enough beds and a nice sized living room for gathering. A nice bonus was the grill and the outdoor spaces. It is a nice location, we walked frequently, and the neighbors were great (one of our group forgot something and they let us borrow). It was a great house for a larger group reunion, thanks!
I can only recommend this place to anybody!The house has everything you'd wish for and John prepared it perfectly so there's nothing that we've missed, couldn't find or didn't understand! The beerpong table and the chill neighbourhood made it a perfect hangout for my friends and me.
The only thing I regret was that we didn't stay longer! Thank you John.
We had a great experience renting this amazing house in Ann Arbor. When we got to the house their was bread, coffee, and water waiting for us. The house was clean and had really cool furniture. The bathrooms were well stocked with towels and bathroom products- it was great. It was the perfect place for my friends and I to stay for a wedding.
The neighborhood was charming, and John gave us plenty of information on the accommodations in the week leading up to our stay, and made sure there was a pound of coffee at the house when we got there.
We stayed at this home while in town for a wedding-perfect for a variety of family members staying there. The kids loved the ping pong table. The grill made sharing dinner with more family super easy! John was available but the house was in such great shape we really didn't need anything more. Thanks John!
I can't say enough about what a great weekend I had while renting out this house. If you need a place to stay in Ann Arbor that is close to all the action, yet away from big city traffic and noise, with a host who will make sure your stay is comfortable & easy, this is THE PLACE.
John was a fantastic host, and the home was beautiful. Use of the grill and outdoor space with plenty of bathrooms and sleeping space to keep us comfortable made this house a great fit for a bachelorette party of 11 guests.
Not only was there a clear set of instructions for the house, but also a delicious bag of fresh local coffee and sliced watermelon to snack on. Can't say enough about how much that was appreciated!
Everyone was raving about how nice it was to have the house near to all the activity downtown instead of having to squeeze into a hotel. Finally, I left behind a computer charger that I needed for class-John put it into Priority mail for me the next day for no cost. Absolute lifesaver. Amazing stay and highly recommend staying here.
John was a great person to work with! He was friendly, courteous, sent a lot of great information about the house ahead of time so we knew what to expect. The house itself is lovely and homey, and it felt pretty spacious; there were 4 of us families (3 families with small kids under 4) and it never felt crowded. There is plenty of parking both in the driveway and on the street (free), so we parked our 3 vehicles comfortably. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly.
