I am a 33 year old from London, who somehow wound up living in Detroit. I am a psychologist by training and do psychiatric research at the University of Michigan.
I was introduced to AirBnB a few years ago, so am an experienced guest, and I was convinced by my hosts on a trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago that it was time to do my part and turn host! I returned home and fortunately was able to convince Chris, my other half, that it was a good plan, so, here we are...
We have renovated our home with lots of reclaimed materials and hand built features, and we are very proud of the result. We are also super keen to spread the word that Detroit is a fantastic place to live. We've been hosting on airbnb for around 2 years and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We have a spare room and are very happy to share our home with almost anyone who is interested in and enthusiastic about exploring Detroit!
I also act as manager for my Mum's listing in London. She isn't online enough to be a responsive host, so I'm running the show for her with respect to bookings/inquiries etc. She has a beautiful flat in Central London that she uses only for work during the week. Its free most weekends and for the whole of the summer. Its really a fantastic place from which to explore London.
So, please book away - I look forward to welcoming you into my home (Detroit) or corresponding my way to a smooth check in for you in London!
