About Nina Howard

My life is ruled by my 5 pound dog, Ling-Ling. I never knew a dog could have such power over me! When I am not playing with her, I am busy running the Guest Houses in Ann Arbor or in my art studio painting abstract art. Oh, did I mention the garden? I call North Carolina mountains my home but travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of the 5 Ann Arbor Guest Houses. What a life!

Nina Howard purchased this house in 2012

Why Nina Howard chose Southeast Michigan

I lived in this property back in the 90's and mentioned a few years later, to the landlord, that it would make a great Ann Arbor Guest House. He offered it to me in the Spring of 2012 and I got busy pulling it together. It is a work in progress. I love staying here and remembering the 'good 'ol days' when I would dart in and out of my apartment enjoying the fun filled life of living right in the middle of town.

What makes this house unique

Everything is within a 5 block walk, U of M, Main Street, Kerrytown! Okay, walking to the Stadium takes a few more blocks to get there. Having a parking space in town is a big plus if you think you need a car. Teeming life on the streets on the other side of your front door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Nina,

Thank you & Take Care,

Meeting on Ann Arbor Campus

  • 5 of 5

I was in Ann Arbor for a meeting on central campus. Rather than staying at the Bell Tower or another close hotel, I chose to stay at a VRBO near by. Nina's property on E Washington fit the bill perfectly. It is what you would expect from a campus house, cozy with lots of bedrooms, but also with a nice office arrangement to get work done. The kitchen had all the amenities you could need, though you are right in the heart of the restaurant scene by campus.

Nina was great to work with. She was responsive via email quickly and made sure I received all pre-trip information. On arrival, there was an electrical plug issue (see below) that she addressed right away.

Issues:

Some of the electrical outlets, but specifically those in the main bedroom, are two and not three pronged. I charge my phone at night on my night stand and use it as my alarm, so with no way to plug the phone in there was no way to do this asI did not have a three to two adapter. I was able to find one in the house. Nina had a couple sent over the next day.

The bathroom is kind of small. If there were several people in the house, it would be difficult for everyone to keep their toiletries in the room.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again for a meeting. And I will be working with Nina again in the fall when my wife and I return to stay at another of her properties for an M football game!

Lovely house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to spend any time in downtown Ann Arbor, this is the place to be! It's extremely convenient and plenty big for a small group or family.

The inside of the house is very nice and well decorated. Plus the ease of check in/communication with owners was great! Highly recommended.
