I'm a laid-back residential builder, have been renting my house out recently, and am happy to join the Airbnb group of hoteliers.
The house was perfect for our large group of friends getting together for the weekend. The house was clean, we were surprised to have chocolate chip bread from Zingermans waiting for us. The location made it easy to get to downtown. He had detailed instructions and was available when we had questions. Highly recommend! Thanks John.
Seven people (three couples, one solo) stayed for two nights in February. Perfect location for walking to games (we walked to Yost). Almost immediate replies in the booking process. Accommodated small requests. Extremely, exceptionally clean with zero complaints from three females who have no qualms with pointing out problems when traveling. This is no small feat. Thank you! Perfectly quiet both Friday and Saturday nights (except for us playing cards quite late), and we also ordered late delivery both nights with no lost drivers or problems.
Never met John, but we did call him when we got to the house and we talked briefly. Zingerman's bread and a nicely stocked kitchen impressed us. Plenty of towels, comfortable beds, and lots of seating. We played only a little ping pong, but the garage would have been used way more if it wasn't so cold!
Beds and rooms are ready for guests. Two rooms on the main floor, both with beds big enough for two, one with adjustable firmness settings. Four single beds in the upstairs room and one bigger bed in the downstairs room. Clean bathrooms on main floor and downstairs. No surprises with house rules. Easy procedures at the end of the stay that made us feel confident in how clean the house appeared (strip beds, towels on the floor, empty trashes).
With a full house of guests and the cost divided, this is the perfect rental. Perfect first airbnb experience!
Great house; clean, comfortable. We stayed here with our family (seven people) and we all had very comfortable rooms/beds to sleep in. The kitchen space is open and connected to the living area, which made cooking with a group easy and fun. John was easy to work with and responded to inquiries very quickly. I highly recommend this house!
This was a great place for our company's offsite working retreat.
Great house in a great location and all so easily done .Would recommend this house and airbnb to anyone . Actually have already passed this along to fellow wedding guests.
What a wonderful house and wonderful host! Many thanks to John. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice, clean, well maintained, and fun rental in the heart of Ann Arbor.
John was a tremendous host. The house was as advertised with clean bedding, floors, and bathrooms. The fridge was well stocked with water and various other goodies. Instructions were clear and clean up rules were straight forward. No complaints. Highly recommended.
Fantastic for several reasons: John was very accommodating, check-in/out was simple, house is spacious, location for doing anything UofM related was perfect, parking is not a problem and everything was CLEAN.
We had the perfect weekend staying in John's lovely home . From the moment we walked in we felt like we were home. John is the perfect host. He met us there and made us feel so welcome. He brought us a loaf of zingerman's famous bread and fruit spread as well as wonderful coffee. His home is very clean and well equipped for preparing meals at home. I highly recommend John's home to anyone who wants to visit Ann Arbor for any reason. It is a wonderful city and the home is in a perfect neighborhood location.
My wife and I are both Michigan alums, and were looking for a place to stay that was well-located, had ample room and felt "homey." John's house fit the bill. Further, John was very communicative and helpful whenever we had any questions or concerns: this was particularly important as this was our first AirBnB experience. John knew this and went out of his way to make our first experience a positive one. When we arrived we were greeted by a fresh loaf of Zingerman's bread and some terrific coffee! We look forward to renting the house again in warmer weather when we can use the grill and the ping pong table in the garage rec room. All in all an A+ experience.
