DAVE'S FAVORITE REVIEWS

Dave's place is a GEM; if you are considering a stay in Ferndale, don't even hesitate! The apartment is spacious, impeccably clean, in a quiet & safe neighborhood, and great location (a short walk to lots of shops and restaurants/bars on Nine Mile and Woodward). The bed is super comfortable, the shower has good pressure and HOT water! Loved the vintage decor. Communication with Dave was prompt and courteous; secure keypad to main entrance & skeleton key to apartment made me feel safe & secure. I loved the little black squirrel that sat up on the gable roof just outside the kitchen window! I recommend Java Hut and Red Hook for coffee; baked goods at Red Hook are AMAZING! A massage at Greenleaf is just an 8 minute walk from the apartment. Another hidden gem was "How's Bayou" on Woodward for New Orleans style cuisine. Try the gumbo. Thank you Dave for a superb stay! I hope to return the next time I visit the Metro Detroit area. Jennifer Feb/2019

My husband and I had a great stay at David's place. Everything was as advertised. The close proximity of his home to the central Ferndale community is the best! Pretty much anything we could need or want was within walking distance, and the drive into Detroit or any surrounding area was quick and easy. David was readily available if needed; however, the need never arose. The home was quiet and very comfortable. Cleanliness must be high on David's priority list, as the space was spotless and all bedding and towels were fresh and clean. The special touches that have gone into David's place go a long way; the "signature" wall, the skeleton key for the apartment door, the interesting artwork and vintage accents. I would highly recommend David's place and would stay again if the opportunity presented itself. :-) Kristin


I highly recommend David's place! My husband and I loved the quaint, cozy, spacious and quiet space. The layout of the place was neat with all the different rooms and we felt like we could really relax. The screened in porch and updated bathroom (great water pressure) were nice touches. The location was excellent as it was just a short walk to the main street Woodward ave and downtown Ferndale. Seems like a safe neighborhood that we were comfortable walking around in the evenings. As we arrived around 4pm on a Sunday David made sure to tell us that we should check out the Rust Belt Market as they were open only on weekends. We loved a lot of the restaurants and coffee shops that were also just a short walk away. Communication with David was perfect and very easy.

Well what can I say except exceptional! The apartment is small but well furnished and appointed with interesting paintings, books and stained glass. The floors look like they are the original wood and nostalgically squeak when walked on. The bathroom is modern, clean and the water pressure is phenomenal. There is a small covered and screened porch with rocking chairs to relax on. The living room has a TV that's connected to Netflix and over the air channels and WIFI is reliable and fast. The bedroom has a soft but comfortable bed and the living room has a pull out sofa bed with a closet full of additional sheets, pillows and comforters. There is off street parking with oodles of hip and interesting restaurants and bars within 200 yards of the apartment. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and located in the hip location of Ferndale, MI and for those people interested in running, like I do, the area is great with sidewalks everywhere. Upon arrival at midnight, the host David greeted me at the front door and explained how everything works. You are afforded complete privacy and when needed David made him self available to answer any questions and give advise on what to do and where to go. Overall this apartment is value for money, far better than a hotel room and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again if I'm in the neighborhood. Steven St Thomas, VI

We absolutely loved staying at Dave's place. It was perfect. The place was so clean and comfortable. And the back upper deck was just perfect. Loved starting our morning there. We visited surrounding areas and Ferndale is kind of the perfect place to stay. It's so close to everything. And the restaurants....amazing! We love Detroit and now love Ferndale as well. Carla
