Oak Park House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

Charming bungalow, updated, clean, modern, centrally located and very close to the Downtown Royal Oak and Ferndale. Close by to major expressways 696/I-75 so easy to get south to Detroit or north Birmingham/Pontiac/etc. House has 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom on the first floor and a HUGE room and 1/2 a bath on the second floor (including a 42' lcd). Living room has a 55' lcd and the kitchen is brand new with newer appliances and another lcd to watch tv while cooking/eating if you choose to do so. The basement is spacious with washer/dryer and an extra bedroom with a twin bed. There's a decent sized backyard that has a veggie garden when in season, help yourself :).

The neighborhood is safe, quiet, good neighbors. Centrally located to get anywhere. Perfect to jog in the streets. No parking restrictions, can park on the driveway or street.


- 2 night bookings are allowed if:

* weekend nights (Sunday - Thursday) that don't fall on a holiday or special event/period

* check-in is within a week - don't be afraid to ask even if not within the week, depending on the current booking gaps I might say 'yes'.

* filling a gap (determined by me)

[Please be aware that for 2 night bookings there's an extra fee of $80]

- Otherwise the minimum is 4 nights (holidays/special events have their own unique requirements).

- Any booking that includes a weekend night (Friday or Saturday) must include both nights in the booking.

- Check-in time is 5:30 pm, Check-out time is 11:00 am, if possible I work with my guests to make the times flexible if the schedule allows and most times I can but guests should plan for these times.

- Apart from the weekly discount, there's also a discount at 6 nights.

About Roy Gutierrez


I'm a software engineer, latino (south america), really easygoing, social, like to spend time with friends, playing sports, dancing latin music, and basically trying anything new. I love the vacation rental business so now I have switched full time, I found that I get more fulfillment getting a great review about how my property helped someone have a great vacation than staring at a computer screen, so here I am :). I have 2 full time vacation rentals and another part time. I'm totally dedicated to providing the absolute best service to my guests!

Than you!

Property was exactly as described! Great host

We really enjoyed our stay. It was convenient and in a safe neighborhood. We had a group of 7 people and we all fit comfortably.

Great place in the burbs

  • 5 of 5

The house was PERFECT for us. Plenty of space, grocery stores close so that we could hang out together at the house, but easy access to the highway so we could explore the greater area. This is definitely a place that you need a car to get around, but then again it is Motor City! My kids picked tomatoes in the garden that we used in our meals; the big television was perfect to watch a game and put our feet up after participating in the International Half Marathon and Roy was great, easy to work with, and ready to be helpful. I'd definitely consider staying here again if we make it back to the area.

A Nice Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept and comfortable. Roy is a welcoming and accommodating host providing some nice, personal touches like a bottle of wine and candy as a welcome. We would stay here again.

Beautiful, charming, and fresh

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasurable homestay for our family. Roy was truly hospitable and accommodating and provided us with everything we could imagine. The garden in back also added that touch of home that our European relatives truly appreciated and made use of!

I really hate writing a good review...not that the place wasn't was, but because it may be harder to book next year when I come back with my friends on our annual trip. When you first open the door you are immediately drawn into the very welcoming living area. Roy saw to it that that you felt like you were honored guests from the beginning to the end of your stay. Everything that you could possibly need, and then some, was handy. The place was comfortable, the neighborhood quiet, and it was so close to so many great attractions. Definitely a great place to stay....but you may want to keep it a secret!

Comfy, Clean Home-Great Location-Fabulous Manager!

  • 5 of 5

From the date of booking, Roy had excellent communication and I felt like he'd been a friend for years. He had great communication all through our month long stay. The home was clean and in excellent condition with amenities that you'd find in your own home. ie. 60" TV's, all the cable stations, DVR, stainless appliances, lots of storage, granite counter tops, new linens, etc.

My dad was with us and he had his own sanctuary upstairs with a table for his computer/wifi, TV with separate DVR, and bathroom. There is a nice sun room with a big back yard including a garden. Roy told us to pick all of the vegetables we wanted. (He even asked me if there was anything specific we'd like planed before our arrival.)

There are lots of fabulous, local restaurants close by (Royal Oak, Ferndale, Berkley). Easy access to Troy/Somerset Mall (10 min), Detroit Waterfront, Novi (12 Oaks Mall-20 min.). The freeway is very easy to hop on. One of the most premier MI neighborhoods is across the street, Huntington Woods, along with the Detroit Zoo being one freeway exit away.

I give this property a 97% out of 100%. The minor complaints would be that the windows are hard to lock. There is not enough light in the family room and the kitchen table is wobbly. (Don't we all have minor problems at home?) Just keeping it real here....

I highly recommend this property and know we will be coming back!
