Proceeds of *your stay* benefit our Piety Hill neighborhood!
Welcome to Detroit Loves You Guest Home (DLY), est. 2010, Detroit's first and the world's 20th longest running Airbnb!
We provide our guests with a clean, safe, and comfy home away from home in the heart of Detroit. DLY is close to all our soulful city has to offer, yet blessed to be part of a rapidly revitalizing neighborhood, Piety Hill.
DLY is a great fit for groups here for . . .
* Family gatherings ~ reunion, graduation, cooking a holiday meal
* Business or Personal Retreats or Workshops
* Sports & stadium shows ~ Lions / Ford Field . . . Tigers / Comerica Park . . . Pistons & Red Wings / Little Caesar's Arena
* Concerts ~ Fox Theatre . . . The Fillmore . . . Masonic Temple
* Broadway Shows & Casts ~ Fisher Theatre
* Conventions ~ TCF Center/ COBO . . . GM Building . . . Robotics
* Weddings ~ bachelor(ette) weekend
* Volunteering & Faith Based Service
* Special events ~ Theatre Bizarre . . . GRiZMAS . . . NAIAS . . . Movement
* Detroit exploration ~ DIA . . . Eastern Market . . . The Henry Ford
* ANYONE wanting to support a 4th generation Detroit family business that has dedicated over $10,000 in proceeds for community benefits ~vs~ staying at a generic soulless Airbnb owned by an out of state corporation
DLY may not be a good match for those who . . .
* Are unnerved by Detroit's poverty & abandonment ~ Our neighborhood's real estate is skyrocketing but some abandoned & burned homes remain to be rehabbed or removed
* Need quick/precise climate control ~ our state of the art radiant system changes room temperature slowly so we provide space heaters & bedroom window AC units
Special Covid-19 note: Entire Home Airbnb rentals like ours offer the most protected accommodation. Far better than hotels and shared Airbnbs. Our housekeeping company sanitizes and sterilizes between each reservation and staff never enters the home when guests are present. We are compliant with all Airbnb Covid-19 protocols, including 3 days time before and after each reservation. Therefore guests cannot catch it on site, or spread it to others. Please book with confidence. Although events may be cancelled or postponed, and restaurants and bars are closed, Detroit remains resilient.
. . . I M P O R T A N T . . . R U L E S . . .
To ensure a good match between home's rules and your needs, and to avoid any chance of miscommunication, everyone in your group needs to read our entire listing before booking, including 'Interaction with guests' and 'Cancellation' below. We're happy to help with any questions and will do our best to accommodate your specific needs.
* ARETHA FRANKLIN SPELLED OUT OUR ONE-WORD POLICY . . . R - E - S - P - E - C - T
DLY is a top 20 longest running Airbnb on Earth and the first in Detroit. It has become our family business, which we cannot jeopardize losing by hosting a group that disturbs our neighbors. We strive to provide excellent hospitality and guest satisfaction, of course, but also in the form of strict rules and procedures that ensure every group we host is a good fit for our home, neighbors, and housekeeping team. Therefore . . .
NEIGHBORS - We absolutely require all our guests to completely respect our home and our next door neighbors with small children. Our neighbors know to call us immediately if there’s any disturbance, and our goal is to never again have to respond to such a call.
AIRBNB 2019 PARTY HOUSE BAN - We cannot accept Reservations with variable or uncertain guest lists
NON-OVERNIGHT VISITORS - ALL guest names, whether or not spending the night, must be submitted at the time of booking or prior to Reservation start, along with cells for any given the entry codes. For 1-night reservations the rate is determined by the total # of people entering the house regardless of how many sleep there. For a gathering on 1 day of a 2+ night reservation there's no charge for a # of non-overnight visitors equal to the number of overnight guests. E.g. 10 overnight guests staying 2 nights could have up to 10 non-overnight visitors for a gathering on one of the days at no charge. Visitors beyond that number add $20 each.
CAMERAS & UNREGISTERED PEOPLE - We use Ring doorbell and 4 exterior cameras to enhance guest safety and ensure only pre-approved registered guests enter our home. We fully respect guest privacy and will never install interior cameras.
SOUND - We use NoiseAware decibel monitoring service to ensure neighbors aren't disturbed by noise after 10pm / 22:00. This usually means staying inside vs. the front or back porches. Keeping all windows & doors closed also helps keep sound in. No outside sound equipment without approval.
INTOXICATION / NO SMOKING - Please enjoy alcohol and legal intoxicants in moderation. No drunken or intoxicated behavior, which may disturb neighbors or lead to additional cleaning or repair charges. Absolutely no smoking anything inside or additional cleaning charges will apply. Front porch: tobacco OK, no cannabis. Backyard: all OK. Vaporizer: OK inside. Make sure all guests put all cigarette butts in provided pots or trash, or additional cleaning charges will apply.
NEVER ALLOWED - No fire, incense, or flame of any kind inside. No glitter or glitter make-up, confetti, etc. or additional cleaning costs will apply
* C H E C K - I N ~ Check-in is after 4pm / 16:00
EARLY CHECK-IN - If you want to check in earlier and the previous night is UNBOOKED, you may add it to your reservation (we can help), allowing us to lock in a check-in time of 5am / 05:00 or after.
If the previous night is BOOKED we cannot accept requests for early check-in. However, sometimes housekeeping finishes early, allowing for 3pm check-in for no additional charge. If you would like to check in after 3pm, let us know, and we will coordinate with housekeeping the day of your arrival and will let you know that day if it's OK to check in at 3pm / 15:00.
VEHICLE DROP-OFF - Please inquire at time of booking or ASAP if you want to park vehicles in our gated backyard prior to 4pm / 16:00. It is often possible after 11am / 11:00. It is always possible to leave vehicles parked on the street at any time.
LUGGAGE / FOOD DROP-OFF - Due to strict housekeeping policy, guests and housekeepers cannot be in the house at the same time; therefore we cannot accept requests for dropping off luggage / food. However, guests are welcome to leave luggage / food in parked vehicles in trunks or otherwise out of view.
* C H E C K O U T ~ is before 10am / 10:00
$50+ HOUSEKEEPING DELAY FEE - We’ve partnered with an amazing cleaning company formed by local Airbnb Superhosts. In order to provide their excellent service they require extremely precise scheduling. When your Reservation is confirmed housekeeping is scheduled to arrive precisely at checkout time. If guests have not fully checked out they will wait to enter the house, charging $50 for a 1-30 minute delay, and another $50 for each 1-30 minute delay after, e.g. $100 for a 31-60 minute delay, etc. We NEVER want to pass these charges on to our guests. We simply need housekeeping to be able to get started on time every time, which their fee incentivizes.
LATE CHECKOUT- If you want to check out later than 10am / 10:00 and the night of your departure is UNBOOKED, you may add it to your reservation (we can help), for its base rate plus Airbnb Service Fee & state tax. Then you may request to set checkout to any time prior to 5pm / 17:00.
If the night of your departure is BOOKED we cannot accept requests for late checkout.
The day of booking, you may request 11am / 11:00 checkout at no additional charge. After booking, once housekeeping is scheduled, it is unlikely we can accept an 11am / 11:00 checkout request; however, it may still be possible to add that night to your Reservation.
PICK-UP VEHICLE - While no vehicles may remain parked in the backyard after checkout time, guests are welcome to park on the street and return anytime to retrieve vehicles.
PICK-UP LUGGAGE / FOOD - Due to strict housekeeping policy, guests and housekeepers cannot be in the house at the same time; therefore we cannot accept requests for leaving luggage / food. However, guests are welcome to leave luggage / food in vehicles parked on the street in trunks or otherwise out of view.
* P A R K I N G
STREET - Free, no permit on Hazelwood St, and Third St in front of Peaches'n'Greens market. Street parking is exceedingly safe; just lock doors and never leave visible valuables (GPS, bags, etc.)
BACKYARD - Luxury vehicles and any others not emptied of visible valuables should park in our gated straw covered back yard fits 6-8 midsize or smaller cars. Larger cars, SUVs, and trucks may not have enough turn radius to enter from through the 8' / 2.5m wide alley gate.
* PRIVACY ~ Full and private use of the house - no other guests. 2 private bathrooms. Ring doorbell and 4 exterior cameras enhances guest safety and ensures only pre-approved registered guests enter our home. We fully respect guest privacy and will never install interior cameras. Nathan the owner may need to tend the grounds - see 'Interaction with guests' below.
* CHILDREN ~ Children of all ages are welcome and we've hosted hundreds of families. Be mindful that the house is not child-proofed and there are stairs, games, books, mugs, etc. within reach. Prior to checkout everything must be put back as found.
* PETS ~ With these rules followed, we welcome well-behaved animal companions
All animals entering the house must be approved prior
To be approved, our rules must be agreed to and strictly followed, else additional cleaning charges apply . . .
For each animal we require: name, gender, breed, age, spayed/neutered?, house trained?, any history of spraying/marking / accidents / violence / scratching / furniture damage?
Unless caged or crated the entire time, for allergenic reasons no animals are ever allowed in the bedrooms, including the ground floor Morton Room / living room
All bedroom and Morton Room doors must be kept closed at all times
You must remove all traces of pet hair and accidents prior to checkout. Any accidents or damage must be reported.
Do not leave animals in the backyard unattended; it is fenced but not dog proof
Throw away all poop on the property as it happens
While there is no set pet fee, we reserve the right to pass along any charge for additional cleaning from housekeeping
* HEATING & COOLING ~ October - May: Home's radiant system (not forced air) heats floors (except space heat in the 3rd floor Air Room) for ~70F/21C room temp day & night. Space heaters in every bedroom. June - September: Window AC units cool the 3rd floor Air Room and 2nd floor Water, Fire, and Earth Rooms. The rest of the house can be kept as cool as the nighttime low by opening windows in the evening and closing them in the morning. Complete heating & cooling info and instructions are in our House Manual, provided after booking or by request.
* SAFETY ~ We are proud of our perfect safety record for over 4000 guests since 2010. Those not familiar with predominantly African-American urban neighborhoods (like most all of Detroit), may at first mistake poverty for danger. Overcoming these mental projections to see the 'Gold Beneath the Grime' is part of what DLY's mission is all about. Compared with other Detroit neighborhoods, ours is quiet, friendly, and low crime, yet still emerging from the neglect Detroit is infamous for.
Everyone in the community knows DLY, and nearby stores are very welcoming to guests who support them. We simply advise guests to use the same basic common sense street smarts as in any city: head up, look & walk confidently, be aware of your environment, avoid unpopulated areas, use the buddy system at night, etc.
Although it's total overkill, DLY has a monitored alarm & fire alarm, exterior cameras, security doors, and window guards to help all guests feel as perfectly safe as they statistically are.
Our neighborhood is now highly desirable, with real estate values rising sharply. As shocking as Detroit's decay may appear at first, the direction of change is undeniable and its pace accelerating. You may find Detroiters to be surprisingly friendly. Consider saying hello to a stranger - it's the Detroit way.

See owner Nathan Andren welcome a guest family to DLY and show them around the neighborhood on Season 1 Episode 1 (starting 02:50) of The FIND: Detroit - https://www.thefindshow.com/video/detroit-episode-1
Piety Hill is an old, authentic central Detroit neighborhood; a quiet bedroom community named after the many gorgeous historic churches & synagogues on nearby Woodward Ave. Compared with other Detroit neighborhoods, ours is quiet, friendly, and low crime, yet still emerging from the neglect Detroit is infamous for. DLY is surrounding by an ever-increasing cluster of bright spots of development including Malena Marks children's park & Brilliant Detroit community center across the street, $8M Herman Kiefer Hospital redevelopment, Community Development Corporation, laundromat / fitness center & trail, Peaches'n'Greens, dozens of rehabbed homes, an orchard & many community gardens! Our Piety Hill neighborhood is now highly desirable, with real estate values rising sharply. As shocking as Detroit's decay may appear at first, the direction of change is undeniable and its pace accelerating.
You may find Detroiters to be surprisingly friendly. Consider saying hello to a stranger - it's the Detroit way.

Gran casa i ubicació. La casa està decorada molt bé i molt còmoda; molts jocs i registres per triar. El centre de la ciutat és a 5 minuts amb cotxe de la casa. El nostre grup es va sentir molt segur durant tot el temps.Matt2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
Aquesta és la millor oportunitat per al vostre buck! No us perdeu l'oportunitat d'estar en una ubicació centralitzada a 10 minuts de qualsevol cosa que valgui la pena. Els veïns eren molt amables i acollidors. Cada persona va parlar de com estaven tan satisfets amb Nathan i la seva llar. Al costat de la cantonada hi ha un mercat fresc de petita finca. Aquest lloc no es pot superar. Segur que tornaré per tercera vegada.Zach2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
La casa està situada a pocs quilòmetres de tot el que volíem veure ia poques quadres de la zona cèntrica. Els llits dormien còmodament, i hi havia un munt de mantes i tovalloles per a tot el nostre grup de 23. Nathan és probablement el propietari més sensible que he treballat mai amb Airbnb. Va ser sempre una trucada de telèfon o un missatge de text i va ser un gran amfitrió - fins i tot es va aturar per donar al nostre grup una breu introducció a la ciutat de Detroit. Hi havia un munt de jocs i activitats per fer a la casa, i la cuina completa amb estris i plats era increïble per al nostre gran grup. Ens va encantar la casa de convidats de Detroit Loves You.William2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
Ens vam quedar aquí per a una FIRST Robotics amb l’equip. No podríem haver demanat un host més agradable i més servicial. Totes les habitacions estan dissenyades amb cura per a la màxima comoditat. Cadascuna de les nostres 16 persones tenia el seu propi llit i jo era capaç de cuinar per a l'equip i quedar-me en una casa fantàstica per una fracció del preu d’un hotel i atendre a tantes persones. Vam passar una bona estona i tornarem a competir a l'àrea metropolitana de Detroit després!Evelyn2019-03-02T00:00:00Z
Arribem i hem trobat que l’adreça és amigable amb Google. Només cal que busqueu la casa blava i el mercat de productes i esteu allà. Si no voleu aparcar al carrer, haureu de tornar al carrer. Us recomanaríem que algú us ajudés a entrar a la part de darrere tancada. La porta està ajustada si teniu un vehicle tot terreny o un vehicle més gran. Un cop a dins trobareu una casa eclèctica amb tot el que necessiteu. Si teniu jocs de taula, jocs de cartes o futbolí, aquesta és la vostra casa! Hem trobat un avantatge que hi hagués un reproductor de discs antic i la varietat de discs en ordre alfabètic. La cuina s’ha emmagatzemat completament, de manera que no cal portar estris de cuina, batedores, cafeteres, etc ... llavors també és aconsellable consultar els calaixos i els armaris, ja que el propietari ha animat els hostes a deixar les restes. Podeu provar diferents cerveses a la nevera, així com cafès i aperitius. No cal portar espècies, filtres de cafè ni cap d’aquest material addicional. A continuació, a la planta superior del nivell 2 hi ha 3 habitacions i 2 banys. Els banys tenen tones de xampús, sabons i tovalloles / washrags. No cal portar res allà. Hi ha un dormitori amb un bressol, un escriptori i un bany compartit. Un altre dormitori té un sofà, un escriptori i un llit gran. L'últim dormitori té un gran espai obert per jugar o treballar, un escriptori i 2 lliteres més grans. La 3a planta està amunt i al voltant d’una cantonada i s’obre en un bonic espai d’altell de 3 dormitoris. Hi ha diverses làmpades, així com un escalfador d’espais, per aconseguir fred. Aquest seria un gran espai per enviar els nens si estàs allà per temps familiar. Totes les habitacions són acollidores i acollidores. Els llits són MOLTS còmodes i tenen una àmplia roba de llit. Els banys són nets i acollidors. Quan es trasllada a la sala d'estar, hi trobareu 4 sofàs que són futons a més d'una cadira de grans dimensions. Vam pensar que podíeu dormir al voltant de 20 persones a la llar si realment voleu ... tenir espai d’aparcament. No us desactiveu el barri. Vam preguntar a tots els nostres conductors Uber, el marit i la dona del local a la botiga de licors propera i alguns altres transeünts i van dir que sentien que el barri era segur. No ser de la zona que ens preocupava, però va funcionar bé per al nostre grup i si tornem a veure un joc d'ales o voldríem ballar els mitjons de nou a Ol Shillelagh, ens quedarem atents a Nathan, ja que era assequible i divertit. Va signar el grup LSSU Alumni, Yooper, Amic incompatible de tot Michigan i el nord d'Indiana.Michelle2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
És un lloc agradable en un barri proper i Nathan és molt amable i servicialAnnika2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
Aquesta va ser la meva segona estada a la casa de Detroit Loves You. És tan perfecte per a un grup gran! A prop de tot, net, i tant de caràcter únic de Detroit. Gràcies Nathan!Tara2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
Meravellós espai per a un grup gran!Nicole2019-01-21T00:00:00Z
