This is a private room in an open-layout sunny upstairs unit of a recently-renovated Victorian house in the historical Woodbridge neighborhood. Our house features a new modern kitchen with rustic touches, security system, super-fast fiber optic internet, heat & A/C, and a large backyard. At any given time, there is either one or two dogs staying in the apartment. Stooie, a spunky Boston Terrier, lives permanently here. Sofie, a loveable French Bulldog, visits from time to time.

The space

This unit has been recently renovated and features a brand new kitchen and bathroom and new flooring in the common areas. Unit is climate-controlled which is a rarity in the old houses in this neighborhood; not only will you be warm in the winter but a rush of cold air will greet you upon arrival in the hot summers.. Enjoy the balcony while taking in a view of the Fisher Building lit up at night (only viewable certain times of year). Or sit back and relax in front of a fire out in the spacious backyard with several gardens. If the weather is bad outside, I have a wall-mounted 45 inch HDTV in your room for privacy and fiber optic internet.

Guest access

The upstairs unit including the guest room, kitchen, bathroom, common area, and balcony. Excluding the host's master bedroom (except by request to do laundry). The front and backyard are also available to be enjoyed including gardens and a fire pit. Lower unit is completely off limits.

Interaction with guests

I am very responsive via the AirBnB app and I am always available to chat and give recommendations when I am home. However, if you want to have privacy feel free to let me know, I won't be offended.

I cannot iterate this enough, if you have any issue during your stay please be forthcoming with it. I won't be offended and I will do what I can to rectify it, whether it be something being cleaned or needing a certain item. I have had guests in the past that were very passive aggressive and instead of letting me do my job and cater to them, they pretended everything was fine and blindside me with complaints after the fact. I want you to be as comfortable as possible, let me make sure you have everything you need and everything is to your liking.

Also, if I have time, I do enjoy showing people from out of town our great city. I have filled out an extensive guidebook on here of places I recommend around the city, but I can also let you know of any events going on around that may be of interest and I really enjoy taking guests out for a night on the town.

Andrew was great at communicating with me! His Airbnb worked well for me during my short trip to Detroit.

Andrew is a very good host. He is very friendly and loves to share his city with travellers. He spent much time telling us about Detroit. Stooi, Andrew's dog kept us entertained - he is very cute and friendly. The room is very convenient - the bed very comfortable - we were two medium sized women and were very comfortable sharing the bed. Getting in to his place was fairly easy but I did have some trouble opening the lock box at first. The bathroom was large and easy to use. We also used his cups and dishes but of course cleaned up after us. Overall a very good experience, Our only suggestion would be that the shared areas were a bit messy the first two days. Andrew can look into that. The bedroom was very clean though. Many thanks for hosting us Andrew!

Andrew was a kind host. I appreciated the timely responses, snuggles from Stewie ( the pup) and the location, which was a 10 minute ride from many places.

Andy came out to greet us when we arrived and helped us to get our bags into the house ( one of us was on crutches). He told us about the history of the house and the area, and shared a bit about himself. His place is definitely a "bachelor pad", but is kind of charming and quirky. We were comfortable there and enjoyed our stay.

I am a resident in the Woodbridge Neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan. I proudly serve my community as a registered nurse. I love having Detroit as my home base but my mantra is "go travel far and often". I have utilized Airbnb frequently as a traveler but I have in addition become a host.
