About Nina Howard

My life is ruled by my 5 pound dog, Ling-Ling. I never thought a tiny dog could have such power over me! When I am not playing with her, I am busy running 5 Guest Houses in Ann Arbor or painting and gardening at my mini-farm and art studio in North Carolina. I travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of the 5 Bellanina Guest Houses. What a life!

Nina Howard purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Nina Howard chose Southeast Michigan

This unique property was chosen to support our travelers with an easy way to come to Ann Arbor and to be able to walk across the street to "mecca" (aka Big House). The lucky person who rents this Guesthouse has a front row/center opportunity to sleep, eat and enjoy the football weekend as a whole experience! In addition, we opened another Bellanina Guesthouse right under this one so that larger parties can enjoy being together. Combined they sleep 12!

What makes this apartment unique

Modern, full kitchen including brand new appliances (dishwasher), brand new furniture, modern art, modern bathroom, patio, walking distance to downtown, walk across the street for football, close to Whole Foods, comfortable and beautiful! Go Blue!

Great Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We came in town last minute for an impromptu reunion. We had (4) of us, and they were kind enough to add a 3rd bed to the 2nd bedroom to accommodate us. Easy in, easy out, view of the stadium from the balcony. Great for a game day weekend!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented quite a few vaca rentals over the years and this was one of the best! It's a bit tight for 6 people but the location and quality of the rental was worth it. It's unusual to find so many amenities such as nice toiletries, kitchen supplies (that I trusted to use!) and quality towels/linens/etc. Access to both I94 and campus was easy - we would definitely rent again!

Perfect home, perfect setting

Loved this adorable apartment! Nicely decorated and well equipped! It was the perfect setting for 5 Michigan alums who graduated in the early 90's! Great place to tailgate and relax post-game - precious memories renewing old friendships! Go blue!!!

Great apartment, well equipped, convenient location with free parking.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay while my son attended a program at UMAP. It is convenient to downtown and local grocery stores. The kitchen was well equipped so cooking was convenient. The location also is close to many restaurants. Highly recommend.

Comfortable, beautifully furnished, across from Big House

  • 5 of 5

The property is right across from the stadium/Big House, 20 min walk from downtown restaurants area. Convenient parking. It was very clean and tastefully furnished; with large bed in one bedroom for two adults and two twin beds in other room. Big screen TV in living room, fully equipped kitchen. Nina provides teas, coffee, books, DVDs for family viewing -- overall, very comfortable for families with children. Nina is a wonderful host; she was extremely responsive to calls/emails and went out of her way to make sure we were settled in OK and enjoyed our stay. Very highly recommended.
