Wonderful home! Spacious, clean, wverything needed available, great location- we highly recommend!
Great property- location, size, cleanliness, and everything needed available! Easy to communicate with owners- and they were friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend to others and stay here again ourselves!
Worth a trip to AA
Fantastic a home away from home. The owner has left nothing to chance all our needs were met. Truly a place you can feel comfortable and relax knowing all your needs will be met.
Great, once we got in!
The stay did not begin well as we could not get into the home. The code was incorrect and that took a while to rectify. The basement bedroom was too cold for comfort. Other than that, the home served our purposes beautifully for the family wedding weekend. Other rooms were very comfortable. Plenty of towels and equipment in the kitchen.
Literally our home away from home!
We are part of a very large family (12 children!) that gets together for a family reunion in Ann Arbor regularly. Our out-of-town members are regular repeat guests of Michael and Diane and absolutely love the home, the neighborhood, its location and its ambience. The entire house is very well-equipped, with a lovely kitchen, fantastic beds, a large living room with a huge sofa (perfect for family conversations), a lovely backyard and "Florida Room"--all that's needed to make your stay comfortable and relaxed. The information binder is very useful and easy-to-follow, with clear instructions on equipment, nearby resources, helpful hints and more. The combination of ceiling fans and whole house air conditioning were a huge help in the 90+ degree temperatures, and the basement is a lovely island of coolness. The house is very well-kept and clean, with extra blankets, pillows, towels, etc. We had a delightful stay and look forward to returning to our "alternate" Ann Arbor home soon!
Home was comfortable and more than met our needs.
Our family gathered with the folks in Michigan from KS and CA. We had a great time. Location was great.
