About the property

2 Bed, 2 Bath Loft w/ Balcony & Garage Parking; close to all MKE attractions

This is a beautifully decorated 1400 square foot, two-level loft condo with a bedroom, bathroom, and walk-thru closets on each level, TV entertainment room and laundry on the upper level, and kitchen, dining area, sitting area, desk, and patio on the lower level. High-end maple wood doors and cabinetry throughout the condo. Lower level common area has maple wood flooring; bedrooms and upper level are carpeted.

STAY RESTED & RELAXED:

Each bedroom is beautifully painted and furnished with a QUEEN size bed with 4 standard pillows, nightstand, dresser, full-length mirror, fold-able luggage stand, and lamp(s). Upper bedroom has a newer memory foam mattress on a dark wood platform bed frame; lower level bedroom has a plush pillow-topped mattress on a box spring and cherry wood sleigh bed frame. The closets are stocked with hangers, iron and ironing board, hamper, and just in case you need it - a floor fan to circulate the air while you sleep.

Each bathroom has a tub & shower with curved curtain rods to give you the most room and comfort. Luxurious granite counter tops, maple cabinetry, and medicine cabinet / side mirror in each bathroom. The linen closet is located in the upstairs bathroom with plenty of bath towels, wash cloths, hand towels, complimentary toiletry items, cleaning supplies, and bath tissue. Hair dryer also provided.

STAY ENTERTAINED & CONNECTED:

Upper-level loft is a casual TV entertainment room with a great view over the loft and out the floor-to-ceiling windows facing south. This room was just updated and refreshed in 2018 with a NEW 55" Vizio SmartCast TV with 125 Cable channels, DVD player, DVD library, and 100 Mbps cable wireless Internet with 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies. With the Vizio SmartCast TV, simply download the SmartCast app to your phone or tablet, connect to the TV over wifi, and cast YOUR own content from YOUR device onto the TV - without having to log in to each of your accounts on the TV - Brilliant! Peace of mind - with this technology, when you check out and leave you don't need to worry if you kept your Netflix or Hulu account logged in on this TV. You can also use your device as the tv remote to control playback, volume, tv input and settings.

STAY COMFORTABLE:

The loft also features a large, ultra comfortable microfiber couch and love seat with soft throw pillows and blankets, coffee table, and end table. Want to sleep 5-6 people? These couches are so comfortable that you can plan to sleep on them if you want to fit 5-6 people in the unit (the love seat may not be suitable for an adult to sleep, but a child would be comfortable).

In-unit clothes washer and dryer are also located on the second level, in the loft closet. New front-load stacked laundry machines installed in 2018.

STAY SATISFIED:

The main level (lower level) contains the kitchen, dining, and sitting areas. The kitchen boasts luxurious black granite counter tops, maple cabinetry, and all stainless steel appliances including a gas range/oven, microwave, refrigerator with water and ice dispensers, toaster oven, dish washer, and garbage disposal. Other kitchen tools include blender, mixer, and crock pot.

Like coffee or espresso? There's a coffee bean grinder, Keurig single-cup machine with reusable K-cup, and a traditional 10-cup drip coffee maker.

The kitchen is fully stocked with drinking glasses, wine glasses, martini glasses, margarita glasses, coffee mugs, beer mugs, plates, bowls, utensils, knives, pots, pans, baking dishes, cutting boards, rolling pin, plastic food storage containers, paper towels, tin foil, plastic wrap, plastic storage bags, and several spices and pantry items.

A 3-stool bar height breakfast counter overlooks the kitchen. There is also a bar-height dining table with 4 chairs, chaise chair, ottoman, and drafters desk in the main level. From the main level, you can walk out onto the balcony for a breath of fresh air.

FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE:

Marie and Lori are your local contacts in Milwaukee. Look at the reviews and you'll see that these ladies take incredible care of each guest and the condo. Marie will coordinate with you before your arrival and meet you at the condo to greet you, hand over keys, show you the condo, and answer any questions you have upon check in. They are also your primary contacts for any maintenance issues, questions, housekeeping, or any additional services you need during your stay. Self check-in is also an option, and they can provide you instructions on that if needed.

HOUSEKEEPING:

Every reservation is charged a one-time cleaning fee of $115 to clean the condo after you check out. Long-term stays over 45 consecutive nights are scheduled for interim cleanings every 30 days during your stay for a fee of $100 per cleaning. The interim cleanings also allow Marie and Lori to ensure everything is working correctly and to conduct routine maintenance. If you desire additional cleaning visits during your stay, regardless of the duration of your reservation, we can schedule those for $100 per visit. There is no daily housekeeping service available.

PETS & FUR BABIES:

You may bring up to two of your furry companions with you. There are pet food/water bowls in the entry closet, but you should plan to bring any other pet specific items with you, including a suitable lockable crate if the pet(s) will be left unattended in the condo. There is a nonrefundable $75 pet fee per visit which is used to cover additional cleaning or carpet shampooing when you check out. Be sure to notify us when you make the reservation so we can attach the pet addendum to the rental agreement.

Pet Requirements:

• Documentation from veterinarian, upon request

• Must be spayed or neutered

• Must be up to date on rabies and other vaccinations. Heartworm preventive is highly recommended.

About Dustin Swanson

I first moved to Milwaukee in 1998 and truly love what this city has to offer: great restaurants, inspiring architecture, awesome festivals, cultural activities, lots of outdoor activities, and amazing people. My work has taken me to the Southwest U.S., but I still come back and stay in my condo a few times a year. I'm a U.S. Air Force veteran.

Dustin Swanson purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dustin Swanson chose Bay View

This condo is located in a perfect location - between downtown and the airport and between I-94 and 794 for easy commuting. Bayview has blossomed around this condo with great restaurants and shops within 3 blocks. The modern floor plan and open loft concept with bedrooms and bathrooms on each floor make this a perfect getaway for family, friends, or coworkers.

What makes this condo unique

Garage spot and parking lot for plenty of free, off-street parking. New 55" Vizio SmartCast TV and high-speed Internet allow you to watch YOUR entertainment the way you want to or dial into work from the condo. Convenience of Bayview Fitness in the same building and in-unit washer and dryer add to the appeal of this property. Great style and design.

Perfect Modern 2 Bedrm/2 Bath Condo

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect and easy in or out of Milwaukee. Quiet, clean and secure. Parking out of the elements was great. The unit was amply stocked with no needs to bring anything except food. Internet was problematic and streaming with a stick or with Apple TV was difficult because of the internet strength. You would only worry about this if you cared to watch the tube but with so much going on in Milwaukee - why worry about the internet?

I would stay again in a heartbeat.

GREAT UNIT!

Great location, very comfortable unit

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Milwaukee as well as this unit. The unit's location to restaurants, coffee shops, and the venue for the wedding we were attending was just perfect. The property manager (Marie) was very accommodating to our needs and quickly responded to any questions we had. The unit was very well supplied. It is exactly as pictured on the web site. I brought a bike to ride and the location of the building is on a street with bike lanes and was very close to bike trails in the Milwaukee area. Thank you Dustin. Thank you Marie.

Loved Condo; Loved Bayview

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four enjoyed both the accommodations and the location! The condo is well-maintained and stocked with all the necessities in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. The decor is tasteful and up-to-date (my husband is now demanding that we add an artist's desk to our home!). We spent several days on foot exploring Bayview and the waterfront areas. We loved the neighborhood. There were so many restaurants we had difficulty choosing just one for each of our meals. I think we all lamented that we could not stay hungry constantly so we could experience more of the eateries nearby. The entire process of reserving, arriving and departing was seamless. Parking is incredibly convenient. And we were so appreciative of the owner's acceptance of our last minute request to bring along a small four-legged family member. We would absolutely recommend this location, and we hope we can stay again in the future.
