About the Manager

My life is ruled by my dogs, Ling-Ling and Chen-Chen. I never thought two tiny 5 dogs could have such power over me! When I am not playing with them, I am busy running 4 Guest Houses in Ann Arbor, and being Co-Owner of Bellanina Day Spa (4 blocks from this location) or Bellanina Institute (located on the first floor of the Kerrytown location). I travel a lot teaching a wonderful anti-aging technique called Bellanina Facelift Massage, to massage therapists, estheticians at spas and resorts around the country. I call North Carolina mountains my home but travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of my four Bellanina Guest Houses. What a life!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Ann Arbor thanks in a large part to Nina's hospitality. The rental was clean and more spacious than I expected. Everything we needed was available and we were a short walking distance to the major points of interest in the town. My two young children (7 and 9) loved the town and the bedroom with two twin beds. I would definitely rent this place again if we were to return to Ann Arbor!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the finest rental properties we have used. Yes, it is an older home (which adds to the charm), but it is beautifully appointed. The owner has thought of every detail. The location is as good as it gets for a trip to Ann Arbor -- a treat for me for my first trip back after graduating 17 years ago. The campus is right out your front door, but the home is quiet. Having a parking spot in this area of town is very convenient as well.

This property is on our "short list" to return to some time in the future!

Downtown guest house

  • 5 of 5

We had a pleasant stay at the downtown Bellanina Guest House. It accommodated our family, including my husband and myself, my mother and our nine year son really well. It has everything we needed - pleasant bedrooms, a clean well appointed bathroom (important to me) and a very nice kitchen. We didn't actually cook there, but put the coffee maker and toaster to use. The location is close to everything we needed - restaurants, groceries, bars, which made it a bit noisy, so keep that in mind if you need quiet. We didn't find it a problem and enjoyed the vibe.

Staying in the heart of Ann Arbor in a house was fantastic. Great accommodations and easy to find and park. Loved the 5 minute walk to everything.

Location

From the Owner

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 Bellanina 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.

Amenities

From the Owner

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.
