Joseph was an exceptional host. He was very friendly, easy-going, and has an outstanding knowledge of the city in every facet, from its history to its present developmental challenges and successes. He was remarkably helpful in providing information about things to see and do, where to eat, transportation and more.
As for the room, it was very clean, quiet and spacious. It also features its own bathroom and antechamber that separate it from the remainder of the apartment. The building is clean, seemingly secure, and well located downtown. It is within walking distance of many transportation options and a number of downtown sites of interest. I would highly recommend Joseph as a host, and the accommodation, in every sense of the word, that he provides.
Our stay at Joe's condo was great for our trip. We wanted something central downtown so we could view the history of Detroit.
The building has an artistic feel to it with great b&w photos of D-town culture.
However, the building itself also has a musty smell to it. You can tell it has been retrofitted and fixtures and appliances are a bit older.
The view from the penthouse common room is spectacular! Complete with pool table arcade machine and big screen tv.
Joe is a great host. He also hosted our walking tour of the city. If you want to learn about the history of Detroit he's a perfect host.
Location was great! We came into Detroit from Grand Rapids to see the Pixies play at the Fillmore. Joe's place was just a few blocks away. His location is central for downtown activities and public transportation. It's also a matter of minutes from surrounding neighborhoods. Joe is knowledgeable and very passionate about Detroit. He was a great resource for citizen insight because of his passion and engagement with the city.
The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and having our own bathroom was definitely a plus...same with the guest parking.
Enjoyed my stay. The location was perfect for my activities. I recommend staying here, my hosts were very helpful and informative.
Joe and Matt were fantastic hosts. They were super helpful in pointing out fun things to do in Detroit and they were very welcoming. The place is located downtown and is walking distance from all sorts of life. The room itself is clean and comfortable.
Joseph was very welcoming. From the moment of arrival we were treated like long time friends! In town for the International Auto Show his location was perfect because the people mover station is beisde his building. The value was exceptional because he offered free parking which is hard to find in any US. city. After return in the evening we all shared drinks and interesting conversations. In the morning he joined us for a very good breakfast at a local diner. If staying with Joseph and time allows take a walking tour with him, he has exceptional knowledge of the city. Thank You!!!!! FIVE STAR HOST *****
The apartment is extremely clean and spacious, with beautiful views of the city. The downtown location was ideal for getting around and the available parking was helpful.
Joe was not only friendly and accommodating as a host, but extremely insightful. This was my first time in Detroit and it was such a wonderful experience that I am already planning a second visit.
Joe was extremely accommodating and even went as far as getting us takeout dinner the first night of our stay. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the city and made our trip much more memorable than if we had stayed in a hotel.
Great host and comfortable spot. HIghly recommended for a stay in downtown Detroit.
This was a super convenient location, with super friendly and helpful hosts! A good place to stay while you're in Motown.
Great guests! Very pleasant, respectful, and lots of fun!
Joseph was a wonderful guest, he was clean, great with communication, and he has great energy. FUN! I would be happy to have him stay with me again and so should anyone else hosting on the site!
Joe is charming and nerdy. This is a great combination because not only have I felt comfortable while over, I've learned some interesting things too. I have stayed over at The Bumblebee House a few times, and Joe has been an excellent host every time.
Joe is awesome -- this is the most important part! His housemates are incredible too. The house is beautiful and is being renovated to be even better. And who could ask for a better location? Make sure to ask Joe about the history of Detroit and the house too. I promise that you will love every minute of your stay at the Bumblebee House.
Great guy with a great house. I was traveling with a touring band and he let the whole 6 of us crash in his house. He was very hospitable and he let us listen to his band (Zelda and the Unibrows - They rule.). Everything was very clean and it was one of the best nights of sleep I got on that tour. In the morning, he drew us a map of Detroit with some sweet spots to visit. He knows a lot about the city he lives in and will help you out if you're out of town. He's great!
