About Nina Howard

My life is ruled by my 5 pound dog, Ling-Ling. I never thought a tiny dog could have such power over me! When I am not playing with her, I am busy running 6 Guest Houses in Ann Arbor or painting and gardening at my mini-farm and art studio in North Carolina. I travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of the 6 Ann Arbor Guest Houses. What a life!

Nina Howard purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Nina Howard chose Ann Arbor

This unique property was chosen 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! In addition, we opened another Bellanina Guesthouse right under this one so that larger parties can enjoy being together. Combined they sleep 12!

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!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the flat. It was perfect for our get together in Ann Arbor. Located centrally to where we wanted to go during our stay, plenty of room and amenities. Everything worked and was easy to use. Wonderful place! Will definitely use this location again.

Graduation weekend

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location of this apartment. It is right across the street from the stadium! The only complaint I have about our stay is the noise. The tenants above us were REALLY loud and the noise continued ALL night long. It was nearly impossible to sleep. I don't know if they live there full-time or if they were graduation weekend renters, but the noise is something to consider before renting this unit.

Football Weekend Nirvana!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in a Nina Howard property. As with the last time, this was awesome! My wife and I were in town for the UM-MSU football game.

First, the apartment is right across the street from the stadium. And I mean 150 yards from the entrance gates. The unit is on the second floor and has a balcony, from which you can see the Jumbotron (backup plan for bad weather!). You face Main Street, so on game day the people watching is fabulous. Finally, you are a 5 minute walk from the tailgate scene at Pioneer High School and the Golf Course.

The unit itself is very well appointed. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, from reheating to cooking. The living room has a great view of the block M. Even though you are on Main St, the bedrooms are in the back of the unit and are very quiet.

Since you are on Main St., it is easy to get just about anywhere in town or on campus. While we had a car (to get from the airport), we used Uber to get out in the evening. There is a store and a Whole Foods to the South and a great little wine shop about a mile away on Packard (Morgan and York).

Our summary of our stay is that it was everything we expected. I can think of no other place I would want to rent for a football weekend and we will definitely be repeat customers!
