Super close to University of Michigan and Mott Community College, as well as downtown with great places to eat and drink. The museums, art galleries and planetarium
are between DT and house, everything is within a 15-20 walk>about 1.5 mile walk.
If you are not hopeful for Flint and are judgemental about a city trying to make a come back, please choose another host- I like to be around positive optimists.

The space

The place is super clean, has an awesome shower and everything needed to be really comfy and cook great meals
The main living room is open to kitchen with 2 bedrooms off that, each bedroom has a queen bed and plenty of storage. There are two air mattresses (nice ones) that could be used for a 5th wheel if needed to lay out on the living room floor, or even couch if the size suits. The attic is my room and it like basement are mostly unfinished for now. Laundry is available, everything is right there easy to use, just ask if you have questions. There's an espresso machine I'm happy to train you on if needed as well, it's super easy

Guest access

Access to either bedroom, or both if more than a couple, kitchen bathroom living room. If you want to see the garage where I sculpt just ask

Interaction with guests

I like to meet new people and hear some about their lives, and am happy to share some about why on earth I moved from the Bay Area to Flint in June. I like my street, I like the farmers market, I like a paid off house close to the farmers market, I like the underdog and social justice, and that pretty much sums it up.

Other things to note

Access is via keypad at rear door, parking on street, driveway or secure garage if needed/wanted, I usually park in the driveway and don't care if you block me in

Joel was an excellent host and I loved staying at his house. He was a great communicator prior to my arrival, the house was clean, the bed was comfy, and the shower had excellent water pressure. He also seems to be a great advocate for Flint! Will definitely request his place again if I come back to Flint overnight!

Highly recommend Joel's place--really lovely and a steal of a deal. Joel's great and made the most incredible latte for me in the morning.
