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 in the mountains. I call North Carolina mountains my home but 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 1901

Why Nina Howard chose Southeast Michigan

The growing demand for short term rentals (or vacation rentals) in the downtown Ann Arbor area have propelled me to continue to expand my offering. This sweet apartment is located in the old Pasadena Apartment Building on Division Avenue. The building is over 100 years old but the interiors have been completely renovated including newly refinished floors, walls, kitchen, bath making it a jewel box, much like a pied-à-terre in central downtown Ann Arbor.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to everything. Within walking distance to U of M (near Diag), U of M Museum, Law School, library, restaurants, shopping. Park your car behind this Guest House and walk to everything including the Big House (U of M Stadium). Relax on your private patio. Laundry facilities in the basement. It's all here!

Great apartment for weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a summer weekend. It was quiet due to time of year and location. It was close to Main St but easily walkable to central campus and surrounding bars, restaurants and stores. Easy parking in the back of the apartment. We did not have any issues. Definitely recommend staying here.

Amazing Apartment in Ann Arbor!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely perfect for the two of us! It was so nice to be able to park the car in the assigned spot behind the house and literally walk everywhere!! The apartment was spotless and had all of the amenities we needed for our short stay. We loved visiting Bill's Beer Garden, Grizzly Peak Brewery, and walking around town in the morning with a cup of coffee. The owner, Nina, was amazing with her correspondence before and during the stay. We can't wait for our next trip back to this quaint little spot - hopefully next month!

Old Tappan

A perfect place for Michigan parents.

  • 5 of 5

I was so fortunate to find this charming and cozy one room apartment. The decorating is lovely, with Nina's colorful paintings adorning the walls. Everything is absolutely perfect! It's orderly and complete with anything and everything you might need during your stay. the location is second to none...a couple of blocks from lively State Street, but far enough to be a quiet street, right across from the University. You cannot get better than this.

I only hope that there will be availability for all my future visits.

Perfect A2 Location.

  • 5 of 5

You really don't need a rental car. All of downtown A2 and the U of M campus is within easy walking distance. Anything else is a short Uber ride away. Given the incredible number of great foodie restaurants, a little walking is essential. The apartment was very comfortable and clean and the owner provided excellent before and during service which made our first visit to Ann Arbor very enjoyable. Will definitely stay again.
