Walk To Stadium & Downtown
average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

A wonderful house, great location, clean, well-stocked and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Phyllis' house and we remain huge fans! It was the perfect place for two families to gather before and after graduation at the stadium, which is only 2 blocks away. The house is well - appointed, super clean, and has all the amenities a family needs for a lovely weekend. We will continue to book weekends at this house and recommend it 100%!

Great spot for a trip to the Big House

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as advertised, and is even nicer than the pictures. It easily accommodated our group of nine as we were visiting for the homecoming football game. The house is a stones throw from the stadium and great place to kick off your tailgate. You're right in the heart of the action - close to both the Stadium and downtown.

Phyllis was an incredibly welcoming host and keeps a lovely home. She is responsive and eager to help if you have any problems (although, we didn't have any!). The retro basement is a great place to hang out in a large group, and the backdeck is perfect for barbecuing. Beds were comfortable. I would recommend this house to anyone and we hope to be back in future years.

Fun House by the Big House

  • 5 of 5

Great house with all the amenities you could need, and is right by the stadium! We will definitely stay there again for a football weekend. Phyllis is a great landlady, though we didn't get the cold case of beer I've heard so much about. :)

Great house, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a guys weekend. The house is in excellent shape and the porch and backyard are great for a larger group. The location is very convenient being close to both campus and Main St. restaurants and bars. We were there before football season but it would be ideal for a football weekend. The house is easily walkable to the stadium.

Phyllis, the owner, was great, too. She drove down to meet us at check-in and she even had a cold case of beer waiting for us in the fridge.

When we plan our next weekend in Ann Arbor I will definitely be looking to stay here again.

Wonderful property, terrific owner

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of the cleanest, most well-loved homes I've ever rented. The homeowner was very helpful upon arrival and even gave me a ride to the local market. We were there for a football game as well, and was so pleased with the location and proximity to The Big House especially when the game was halted due to bad weather. I would definitely rent again.

Rented the house with a group of friends for a Michigan football game. First, you cannot beat the location with regards to the stadium. To put it in perspective, all of the surrounding properties sell their driveway space for parking. Second, and most importantly, the owner of the home was so accommodating, left everything in pristine condition, and the house was perfect. This was my first vrbo/homeaway experience and I could not be happier.
