Stay with me and my pups in my cozy house on the west side of Grand Rapids. My house is close to downtown, breweries, parks, trails (bikes available), highways, public transport, restaurants and has full amenities (parking, workout equipment, full kitchen, multiple living spaces). I will have coffee for you in the morning as well as homemade jam and local bread or breakfast bars available for breakfast! Great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and dogs! Guest must love dogs. :)

The space

My place is my favorite getaway spot and place to relax. 5 minutes from downtown, you will feel pleasantly disconnected from downtown to unwind but conveniently close when you wish to venture out. I have enjoyed living here, and have an extra room to share with someone who needs a place to stay that is private but not a hotel or apartment. My full house and amenities are open to my guests, including parking, workout equipment, full kitchen and multiple living spaces. I also will have coffee and breakfast options available. In the guest room, I have 1 bed and 1 futon (with bedding, including pillows). I also have a down mattress topper for the futon, as I know futons are not ideal for sleeping (But this one is!). The room is pictured with different bedding depending on whether I am having female or male/couple guests. My dogs are nice, kennel trained, bathed regularly, and I clean up after them! I have two showers, however the downstairs shower was the only thing not rennovated in my house remodel so I always ensure you have access to the upstairs shower by your bedroom. I will use the basement bathroom for your stay and always use my closet to get ready, so I will not ever be in conflict with your bathroom schedule. The low cost cleaning fee ensures you have a clean experience. If you do not, I will gladly refund. I have a robot vacuum, air purifier and oil diffuser in the house to mitigate allergens and odor-causing bacteria from the dogs, however please note if you do not like dogs or have dog-related allergies that this may not be the best place for you.

Guest access

Everything: multiple living/TV rooms, laundry (upon request), bikes (upon request), multiple bathrooms, kitchen, workout equipment, driveway or garage parking, beach supplies (upon request) and first aid kit (in room).

Interaction with guests

I will be available to you (in person or via text/phone) but will not bother you. There are many living areas (and I am super busy), so we will barely see each other. I tend to stay in my room and take my dogs with me wherever I go! I also use the basement bathroom and always use my closet to get ready, so I will not ever be in conflict with your bathroom schedule. Let me know if you prefer to meet or if you prefer we never do (I seriously don't care; it's your vacation!).

Other things to note

I have two dogs, Nala(the friendly one) and Lionel(the shy one), that stay in the house with me (pictures in post). I have a robot vacuum, air purifier and oil diffuser in the house to mitigate allergens and odor-causing bacteria, however please note if you do not like dogs or have dog-related allergies that this may not be the best place for you. I also want you to know that while I have two showers, the downstairs shower was the only thing not rennovated in my house remodel, so I will always ensure you have access to the upstairs shower by your bedroom. I will use the basement bathroom for your stay and always use my closet to get ready, so I will not ever be in conflict with your bathroom schedule.

Lastly, I provide a 15% discount for stays 7 days long as well as a 30% discount if you stay for a month. There is parking available in driveway or street for no charge. If you stay for over 7 days, the garage is yours for no additional cost. Otherwise, garage parking is available for a small charge(to refund someone who is paying me to park in my garage currently).

This AirBnB experience will be hard to top, Alli has a great home, extremely spacious and in an absolutely prime location in Grand Rapids. 7 minute drive to downtown GR, there were tons of food/drink/entertainment locations nearby which made for a fun stay. Alli has 2 dogs, which for a dog lover is amazing, and for non-animal people, its quite alright as Alli takes them for long walks and is out of the house for most of the stay. Alli offered almost her entire home to us, which was refreshing as it felt like it was one of our homes. My friends and I had an amazing time and we hope to stay with Alli again next time we're up in Grand Rapids visiting!

Great place to stay! Alli was very nice and worked hard to make sure we were comfortable even though she was out of town that weekend

Overall, the house is very nice for guests. Beware, the house has dogs and although they were gone during the time our family was there, the odor was very strong throughout the house. I had some allergy sensitivity which I normally do not have. Felt the bathroom was not very clean, particularly the shower with mildew on the shower curtain. Kind of a deal breaker for me. Did not personally meet Alli but she seemed very nice in her communication and was very detailed on where to find everything in the house. Wish I could have given a more positive review.

Response from Alli:
Hi Steve! Thank you so much for the critical review that will allow me to ensure the best experience for future guests. I would like to respond so my future guests can see the actions I have taken on your feedback. I know the downstairs bath is not ideal, which is why I always make sure my guests have access to the upstairs bath; it is much nicer since it was newly rennovated with the rest of my house (the basement shower was the only thing not rennovated). I apologize you had a bad experience with it. I did just change the curtain on the upstairs bath but have ordered new curtains for both to make sure both are in top shape for future guests and will do better to make sure both showers are free from all residue. I would like to comment that I am a bit surprised by your comments of cleanliness, as cleanliness is something I have always gotten great comments about. I have also never gotten a comment about dog odor, especially considering I both brush and bathe them as well as clean the house regularly. I also do not ever let them have access to your room, even with no guests staying. However, I have taken it seriously and done my research to ultimately invest in an air purifier and oil diffuser that will help support the elimination of odor-causing bacteria, not just mask the odors. I am happy to refund the cleaning fee if you'd like to request it. While my post does state I have dogs, I will also include that it may cause allergies. Lastly, I cannot always commit to being there with my guests depending on my personal travel and commitments, however I do my best to ensure I do when I can. I know you were looking forward to meeting the dogs, so I am sorry you were not able to meet them or I during your one night stay. I would suggest including that in your booking request for future hosts so they know when making personal arrangements for the weekend. We do take that very seriously, as we gain our livelihood from our guests and certainly want them to have a great experience in return! Again, thank you for your feedback.

This place was so inviting and we felt right at home. It was decorated wonderfully. There is a basement entertainment area and high Florida room. The most amazing stay as this was our first airbnb.

Alli's place is in a great spot for what we wanted to do in Grand Rapids. Easily walkable, quiet, and a lot of space to hangout after a long day of activities. Very accommodating and very gracious host. Highly recommended

My name is Alli, and I am a local to Grand Rapids. Born and raised on the west side, it's no wonder why I moved back after college. I work at Amway in Human Resources, have graduated with both my Bachelor's and Masters from Davenport University, where I ran on their track team. My family consists of two dogs, Nala and Lionel; they are my life! If you choose me as a host, you may also meet my boyfriend Freddy. I stay busy, as my whole family is in the area and lots of my friends (oh, and breweries). I also like to stay active and hike/run with my pups. As I state in my profile, my home is my favorite getaway. I hope you choose it as yours, too!
