Об этом жилье
This is a a funky, spacious house in a great area. It's walking distance to Downtown and Corktown. It's literally across the street from the Casino. Nightlife is a short walk away and you can just walk home. The house is a converted split-level.
Welcome to Corktown/North Corktown/Briggs in Detroit! (Our neighborhood has a few names)
Our house doesn't really feel like it's a part of a neighborhood. Our neighbors include the Motor City Casino, an armored security company, and the Teamsters Union. If you like Jimmy Hoffa or gambling, you're in luck. Walking across the street literally puts you in their parking lot.
This also means that our place is extremely safe. We have an armored car drive by a few times every hour and the security cars for the casino make regular patrols. We also have a security system for the house, as well as two guard cats.
We are as close to downtown as you can get without being in it. We're basically kitty corner to downtown, except the two streets separating us are freeways. This is EXTREMELY convenient if you want to get around or get into downtown. You can walk to Corktown's Michigan Avenue or Downtown.
We get asked a lot if the Casino casts a lot of light pollution into the house. It doesn't. We affectionately refer to it as our lava lamp because at most it casts subtle, different shades of color into the house at night. The streetlights put out more light.
The house is an old split-level, two-family home. They turned around the staircase and bulldozed a bunch of walls to create a cool, over-sized, funky place.
Our home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms with queen beds and the nursery that has a crib and a full bed. The sectional couch is large and can easily sleep 2 people. We have 2 full baths; one on each floor.
We have a washer and dryer in the basement that you can use. We also provide bedding/sheets, and towels.
All the beds will have clean sheets upon check-in and extra sheets and blankets are located in the upstairs hallway linen closet. We have a full kitchen with every possible dish, pot, pan or utensil. We do not have a coffee maker but we do have a french press and coffee grinder. We have a charcoal grill and tables and chairs in the backyard for your use. We have wifi throughout the house. If you would like to play music you can connect wirelessly to the Speaker through your phone.
You will have access to the entire house and backyard. You will also have access to the washer and dryer in the basement. Free parking is located in front of the house on the street.
Общение с гостями
Typically we don't meet our guests when they rent the entire house but are available by phone or text anytime during the stay.

We have two kitties that have free range of the house and yard. The cute calico girl cat is named Muus (said moose) and the fat black boy cat is named De Bag. They can go in and out of the house as they please.
We also have an urban farm in the backyard. We have raised garden beds and honey bees.
The patio is open for our guests use and we have a charcoal Webber grill also available.
Please no smoking in the house.

I'm Ely and My wife Is Lauren. We met in the Peace Corps in Africa and we love traveling. We enjoy more rustic traveling experiences rather than being pampered...although who doesn't appreciate a luxury every now and then? We did an all-inclusive honeymoon and thought it was great.
We are not from Detroit. I'm from the West Coast and Lauren is from the East Coast. We fell in love with the city of Detroit, though, and I'd say that makes us great guides to other outsiders as we still remember what it was like coming here for the first time. We remember looking for the cool/unique spots. Finding the greatest food and music venues. Finding the coolest activities.
We love to read. We love to binge watch Netflix documentaries and series. We love HBOgo. We ride bikes. We love listening to records. We don't judge anything or anybody for anything except kindness. If you're nice, you'll fit in here.
