Why Nina Howard chose Southeast Michigan

The obvious reason that we set up this unique property at this location is to support our travelers with an easy way to come to Ann Arbor and to be able to walk across the street to "mecca" (aka Big House). The lucky person who rents this Guesthouse has a front row/center opportunity to sleep, eat and enjoy the football weekend as a whole experience!

What makes this apartment unique

Modern, full kitchen including brand new appliances (dishwasher), brand new furniture, modern art, modern bathroom, patio, walking distance to downtown, walk across the street for football, close to Whole Foods, comfortable and beautiful! Go Blue!

Always good!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is neat and tidy, well furnished and well equiped. We loke to cook and we have all we need. I've been there twice and it has become a good reference for my family and I. The management of small mishaps is efficient and prompt. They are very caring! I recommend and I will certainly be there again.

Great location for a game!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Nina's houses before, and they are lovely. This one is decorated in Maze & Blue and right across the street from the Big House. Not too far to walk into town for dinner, either. About 7/10 of a mile and you're on Main by all the restaurants. This one also has a dining table that seats 6 plus 3 bar stools if you're eating in.

Great stay across the street from Big House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to stay especially for attending game at Big House - it is literally across the street! Everything was great about the stay, when we arrived on Friday evening the sofa bed was even set up for us with bedding, knowing we'd have two children who'd be sleeping there. The condo was clean, comfortable, lots of towels, and the coffee was good too. My ONLY comment is that the TV had digital antenna with poor reception - a bit of a pain not being able to watch TV; would suggest owner upgrades to more reliable TV service. Overall would highly recommend the place to any visitor to Ann Arbor.

Shared this apartment for a weekend with four friends. Beautiful apartment, extremely comfortable, and the location can't be beat! The unit is well stocked and impeccably decorated. Would highly recommend!

I had an excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was impeccable when I arrived with my group. The amenities such as toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher were a must and coffee and tea + sweetener and seasonings and spices were very handy. The maintenance and housekeeping were available for minor things we needed and they were very prompt to sort out a problem with the key. Very caring staff and very professional.

Nina Howard is the reason VRBO is popular!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented a VRBO property owned or managed by Nina Howard. We frequently rent using VRBO, and if she rented more properties around the world, we would rent exclusively from her. Nina provides all the little things that truly change your stay: high quality, soft sheets, an abundance of white clean towels, plenty of toilet paper, Kleenex and paper towel, dish soap, sponges, filtered water .., when you arrive in a new city it is such a pleasure to have all of these "extras" provided for you - and a week's worth at that! We have stayed in so many rentals that are stripped bare but not Nina's place. Nina goes above and beyond, stocking the apartment with her fabulous spa body wash, shampoo and conditioner from her Bellanina day spa, along with white spa robes. Plenty of dishes, glasses and silverware, and all matched, too. And everything in the place is sparkly clean.

The location of the apartment was easy, with a large parking lot. It is literally across the street from the stadium - though we were not there during football season.

Definitely rent from Nina Howard. Enjoy!
