Early 30's professional in the design industry. I like to run, travel, yoga, cook and really into art.
We enjoyed the house. It was a perfect size, pet friendly, and a fenced in back yard that was perfect for our dog. It's a little distant from the downtown area, and probably not walkable in the winter, but we knew that going in, and parking in the city is only $1.20/hr in a parking structure, so that's no big deal.
FYI: there is no tv. fast internet though! and a NEST for a thermostat - i thought i was cool at least.
Debbie's place was clean, cool, and comfortable. She was friendly and easy to communicate with in booking the place, too. Definitely recommended.
Rang in 2014 using Debbie's as a home base for the NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium and couldn't have made a better choice. Cool, cozy and close to everything, Debbie's was great.
Tons of great food within walking distance. Apartment was clean and easily accommodated 5 people. Overall the experience was great. The only downside was the unbearably slow wireless internet and lack of TV service.
My family all had a good time staying in Debbie's apartment. Apartment is clean, location is convenient. It's definitely our best airbnb experience ever. Thanks Debbie!
We stayed at Debbie's place for 8 days in October 2013 and entirely enjoyed the stay.
The apartment is really huge and quite comfortable.
We really liked the Inner Richmond neighborhood with the many cafes, restaurant, bars and its location between the Golden Gate Park and Presidio. We rented bikes for the whole week and with these we could be at every interesting spot of city within 20 minutes. Buses are very regular and take you to Downtown or Fisherman's Wharf within 20 minutes.
Internet worked fine, sometimes a little bit slow, depending on your location within the apartment.
The rooms were quite clean, except the windows. However the windows are covered anyway, as the apartment is situated on the ground floor. That being said, only the room in the front receives natural light.
All in all, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend Debbie's apartment to anyone else.
We enjoyed staying at Debbie's place in October 2013. Although we didn't get to meet Debbie, she was helpful and responded to all our pre visit questions. The neighborhood is great with lots of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, dessert cafes and regular stores. It was exactly as the pictures show and described on the website and very clean and comfortable. Getting a parking space for the car was a bit difficult but we would recommend staying here to friends and family and would not hesitate to stay again.
Great location. Good value. Very clean. Would stay here again.
This is a great little house, nicely remodeled and updated. Debbie was also very responsive and easy to work with. There are only 2 bedrooms, with either a couch or air mattress as the fifth person's spot, just fyi.
Response from Debbie:
Jen, great to have you. The # of bedrooms, couch, and potential use of an air mattress were all detailed in our listing. In the future, please take the time to read the listing so you understand what is being offered.
This was a wonderful way to spend a weekend in Ann Arbor. A group of 5 of us came for a friend's wedding. The house was lovely and it was so nice to all be together and to be able to hang out! If you also have a large party, there definitely will be a lot of bang for your buck with this house. It's huge! Debbie went the extra mile by leaving air mattresses, extra towels, sheets, and keys for us (as we were such a large party). The house was within walking distance of downtown Ann Arbor and was an easy drive to the highway.
Not only is Debbie an absolute pleasure to interact with, I'm also pretty sure she Swiffered my floor. You seriously cannot beat that in a guest! Thanks Debbie.
Although we did not meet, Debbie was easy to communicate with and left the place to tidy and clean. Very pleased to recommend her to other hosts and hope her travels and adventures bring her back to Santa Barbara again!
Debbie and her family were wonderful guests. They did a great job keeping us informed of their travel plans and arrival time in spite of the terrible road conditions. Their baby was absolutely adorable, quiet and content. Both thoughtful and kind it is easy to see why folks enjoy staying at their place as much as we enjoyed having them stay at ours. We would welcome them back any time and recommend them to the airbnb community!
Debbie and her boyfriend were amazing! My only regret was that I couldn't stay and hang out with them...they are awesome. If you are looking for some great guests, they will be the perfect fit.
