My place is walking distance to Downtown B-ham & close to Detroit: Parlo Italiano. Restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, nightlife, historic Woodward Ave, Detroit Institute of Arts, farmers market, Cranbrook educational center with gorgeous walking trails & garden, science center, high end shopping & outlet malls. You’ll love my place because of the tranquil & beautiful garden, location, the creative atmosphere of the city, & the warm, helpful host! You can borrow up to 3 bikes.

The space

1. The room for rent is upstairs and has a comfortable full size bed with high quality linens.
2. Across the hall is a larger room with a beautiful King size bed, also high quality linens. You can find that other listing under Downtown Oasis #1. That room also has a futon available in that room. If you wish to rent both rooms I offer a discount. Although unlikely the other room could be rented during your stay feel free to ask me.
3. There is a shared bathroom located directly between the rooms.
4. There is a refrigerator and electric tea kettle available.
5. My bedroom is located downstairs so the upstairs rented areas are completely private.

Guest access

All areas of the house and garden except host's Bedroom. Please make yourself at home!

Interaction with guests

I love the opportunity to get know my guests and am available on their time schedule. I'm open to sharing a meal together as I enjoy cooking and am home many evenings for dinner. During the summer, spring & fall my deck is a lovely place to meet and have a glass of wine and chat. I love the chance to share great things going on in Detroit (an easy 25 minute drive) or things right around the corner here in Birmingham, Royal Oak, Ferndale or any neighboring areas. I've travelled a lot and love sharing & hearing your stories! I lived in Venice Italy, speak Italian and am an avid bicycle rider.

Other things to note

I also offer Downtown Oasis #1 which includes the bedroom across the hall with a king size bed. The bathroom is shared with Downtown Oasis #2 if it is rented.
If you wish to rent the full upstairs (both rooms) it makes a great suite for 5 people. Perfect for a family or two couples. Please feel free to ask me if the other room is rented or check on that listing directly.

Linda is an excellent communicator. We booked last minute and she let us know about plans she had for a friendly backyard party. She allowed us to join and made our stay very pleasant. The location is ideal for access to downtown Detroit and the northwest suburbs.

The Downtown Birmingham "Oasis" is medicine for the soul. The location is ideal if you have activities in Birmingham, Royal Oak or even downtown Detroit. It was super easy to get an Uber and head to Tigers' games. The yard, the home, the beds, the host, are all wonderful. I haven't slept this soundly in years. It's truly what I needed. You won't regret your stay.

Response from Linda:
Thank you Jeff! I'm so glad you got what you were looking for and needed...relaxation and some time to reconnect with old friends and do a bit of exploring. Glad you loved the bed! I know how important it is to have a great bed when you travel... You're always welcome here!

Linda was super helpful, we arrived earlier than the check-in time and she was very accommodating. In addition, her flower garden is beautiful! I def recommend you check it out.

Linda was hospitable and gracious. I love her artistry, vision, garden, and amazing conversation. The details and work that went into making my stay at her home was four star. I loved the bed, the fresh cut rose next to my bed post. Comfy bed and great neighborhood was a big bonus. Thanks again. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone.
