Situated just 15 minutes from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor & Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti... this house is perfect for small or large groups who want space and comfort. Bonuses include a variety of instruments to play/practice and a nearby park for walking/running. Back deck looks out over a nature reserve providing a lovely backdrop for coffee/tea (which are included). Location is car dependent (no buses/bike lanes). Lift/Uber/Taxi to downtown Ann Arbor estimate is $15-$20.

The space
More privacy than most AirB&Bs.
If you just want to sleep somewhere clean and comfortable without feeling you are in the way or obligated to be social - this is your oasis. Plenty of rooms, internet, musical instruments, and relaxed/low maintenance hosts.

Other things to note
My husband and I have enjoyed sharing our house with experienced airbnb members. We are happy to host for events at the universities, football games, and/or just for vacations to see family. We have recently become super hosts and take pride in our home and the comfort of our guests. If you have stayed with us before, please note that we have made updates before booking another stay.

Updates include:
An infant! Drew and I are expecting June 2018, so any reservations made after that, please know that if we are home during your stay, there will be an infant in the house. Because of the house set up, our bedroom/bathroom wing is separated quite nicely, but their will still be potential for baby sounds and additional noise.

A TV! It was recommended by previous guests that have stayed with us that we add a TV. We now have separated our once full music space into a shared Music & TV Room. This is also the space that has a twin bed, two couches, and if needed a full size floor mattress.

A Walk Out Basement! Our basement is unfinished, but we have set it up to accommodate larger groups and overflow (see pictures above). The basement includes one twin/full bed and an extra twin bed. It also has access to wifi and a projection screen for movies & television. There is no bathroom in the basement, so guests will have to use the half bathroom on the main floor or the full bathroom on the second floor.

Our house is located off I-94, and approximately a 15 minute drive into downtown Ann Arbor. An estimated Lyft/Uber/Taxi from our house to downtown Ann Arbor is $15-20 dollars for four people during regular hours.

We are very much into food and coffee. We don't have a coffee maker, but we do have a french press (with directions). We'd be happy to recommend our favorite spots in Ypsi/Arbor.

Most guests use our WIFI for online streaming on their devices. Although we have fast internet (70 Mbps), large groups can sometimes slow or stall the network (just a heads up! :)

Ypsilanti, Michigan, United States

It's clean, safe, and spacious. We are south of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti (right in the middle) and very close to Wiard's Farm and Orchard.

5 minutes from I-94 means easy access to both towns and 20 minutes from airport. We are also just far enough from highway that we don't hear any noise or get any vehicle pollution in the air.

My husband Drew and I are musicians. With our extra space, we would like to extend a welcome to guests looking for a comfortable and affordable space to stay. Drew and I met each other in 2001 at university. We've lived in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area for fifteen years now, and hold close affiliations with our universities: Eastern Michigan University and The University of Michigan. Both campus are a quick 10 minute drive from our home. Our motto is: Health, Happiness, & Sustainability Our fridge is always stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, and coconut milk. Staying healthy for us means eating clean. We don't have any food restrictions, but our favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor is The Lunch Room (vegan). In addition to eating clean, we also love to do yoga. Each morning my husband has cold brew coffee and I make a drip/pour over. If you like a single origin coffee bean, we've got you covered. Our cleanliness standards are high and we don't have any pets due to extreme (dog/cat) allergies. We would ask guests to be conscious of this. We are definitely a no pet/no smoking house. We've been fortunate to see many places around the world because of our work. It's almost impossible to pick a favorite destination because each place is great in its own way. I will say this, the homes that have been the most welcoming always match up with our favorite people, food & community. We understand what it means to be taken care of when you are on the road. At the bare minimum we can offer: three private rooms and a private bathroom, clean sheets & towels, and privacy. At the maximum we have a shared space with pianos, a record player, games, a projector for movies, and a fully equipped kitchen. We are aware that each set of guests will have different needs, so we will accommodate accordingly. We are both musicians, but love our sports just as much as the next. Favorites include NCAA Football and NBA Basketball. We welcome all sports fans! (Especially Wisconsin fans, statistically they are the nicest we have met so far...) This is our first year participating in Airbnb as a host. We are excited to help travelers with a more comfortable/affordable option than hotels. Whether you are in town for a U of M game, visiting a university, or just wanting to experience this wonderful part of the world- we welcome you! Colleen & Drew
