I have a lovely 4 bedroom, 2 bath home in the Milwood neighborhood of Kalamazoo. I live upstairs. You'll be sharing a bathroom on the first floor with my tenant. It's a mile and a half north of 94 and three miles south of downtown. It's the perfect location for accessing all that Kalamazoo has to offer.
Every season is fun in Southwest Michigan, and my home is close to so much to do. I have two kayaks that you're welcome to borrow, and there are scenic bike trails close by, you'll have to rent or bring your own. There is an A-frame swing in the backyard as well as a fire pit and gas grill.
You'll have a private bedroom and share a bathroom with my tenant. There is a sleeper-sofa in the basement that sleeps two. You'll also have access to the modern and newly-updated kitchen, cozy living room, dining room, and entertainment center in the basement complete with a 70 inch television and surround sound system. There is free parking in the driveway.
I'm happy to show you around and answer any questions you might have. I've also traveled quite a bit and understand the need for privacy and peace and quiet. You'll definitely get that here.
I have a dachshund named Neener Neener and a cat named Spot. My tenant has a Jack Russell/chihuahua mix named Shorty. They're chill and love people. You can interact with them as much or as little as you'd like.
Please let me know how many beds you will need and how many vehicles you'll have.
Treat my house as you would your own, and do not wear shoes in the house. The flooring is hardwood, so I suggest you bring a comfy pair of slippers in the colder months and sandals or flip flops in the warmer months.
Check-in time is flexible and is dependent on whether I have guests checking out on the day of your arrival. Please message me with an approximate check-in time so I can make sure everything is clean and your room is ready to go.
I will not always be home, or awake, for check-out so please lock the three season room door and PUT THE KEYS BACK IN THE LOCKBOX.
Street parking is not permitted between 2-5am, my tenant, parks in the garage. Please park in the driveway behind the grill and as close to the house as possible. Backing in is easier.
I'm a musician, composer, educator, and arranger. I used to travel the country with the Broadway musical Jersey Boys 40 + weeks each year and I stayed in many Airbnb lodgings. I enjoy hosting and meeting new people. Hotels are nice, but there's nothing like feeling at home in someone else's home.
