Adventurers welcome! Stay here & help fund our renovation work as we bring this abandoned 1930s mansion back to life! House is RUSTIC & a WORK IN PROGRESS so be prepared. This private room comes with a King bed and clean sheets & fresh towels. Shared bathroom + shower & toilet. Shared kitchen. Common area Other travelers also here so expect a community vibe! 5-15 mins bike to most top attractions. Perfect for biking explorers. Bikes/gear for $5/day (limited qty). Space This is a very small private room with a king bed (Size: 76 in x 80 in). Although the bedroom is private you will need to share the bathroom in our larger sleeping room since this is the only working bathroom at the moment (sorry we're working on that haha). Shared bathroom has a basic shower and toilet. We are actively renovating this place so please know that parts of the house are under construction. There are currently 3 rooms available for booking, one with 4 single beds (shared sleeping room) and 2 private rooms with king beds. Since other travelers will be staying under the same roof and sharing the same bathroom / kitchen / lounge, the space will have a strong community vibe. It’s a great way to meet people from all around and we’ve made lots of friends while traveling and staying in this type of shared environment. With that being said, if you require more privacy, this is probably not the best place for you but most guests see it as a great way to meet people and embrace the community vibe as part of the adventure. Guest access Guests can access their room and the shared bathroom / kitchen / lounge. The rest of the home is off limits as we are renovating. Guest interaction Due to our limited funds and intense renovation schedule, we will probably be very busy working on the house and trying to keep things moving forward as quickly as we can. In case you need anything, please send us a message and we will be happy to help with anything you need. Neighborhood overview Our house is just up from Belle Isle on the same street! We're close to Eastern Market to our north west and West Village / Indian Village to our south east. Straight shot over to Downtown / Midtown and most top attractions are within 3 miles. A lot of homes in this area are being revitalized right now but there are still a lot of work to be done and you'll probably see some blighted houses nearby. If you want some more info about neighborhoods or places to check out please let us know! We have an extensive travel guide we put together for our guests. Getting around The "motor city" is best experienced via car as the city is very big but bike is also an intimate way to explore. We love this location specifically because of its close proximity to attractions via bike. Uber / Lyft are also great for moving around. City bus service is OK but below average compared to other metro areas. Taxi is also available. SKOOT is also a good option for airport pickup & drop-off. Other things to note We are at the start of our renovation journey here so our space is very rustic now and we want to be open about this. PLEASE GO THROUGH THE PICTURES BEFORE YOU INQUIRE as we want to make sure you know what to expect. Through listing on an early stage, we hope we can provide affordable, cozy and clean accommodation for the right travellers and an opportunity for you to participate in our adventure. All revenue earned goes straight back into renovation and that is a vital contribution to our very very tight budget. Stay with us and be part of the exciting recovery of our house and Detroit!
