Great Experience. Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place the whole family could stay at to visit our daughter at UWM. This was a perfect location. Only a few blocks from campus one direction and Lake Michigan and it's parks just blocks the other way. A nice, quiet neighborhood. It is also much more reasonable and convenient than renting a couple hotel rooms miles away from campus. We could easily walk or take a short drive anywhere we wanted to go.

The house is beautiful. Hardwood floors, crown molding and built-ins add historic charm. Plus many updates to the kitchen and bath make for modern convenience. Also, we were able to bring our dog, which was great. A fenced-in back yard made things really convenient, plus so many great places to take her for a walk. There are a lot of really good restaurants nearby too. But if you are tired after a long day, it is so easy to prepare a meal at home or order food from anywhere in town through services like Uber Eats. You can have a nice evening in together with conversation or watching something on Netflix. Parking is easy to figure out too. We will come back soon.

Quiet location, lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in a very quiet, safe neighborhood. It's was perfect for visiting our daughter who goes to college in MKE...we could bring her dog (the back yard fence is great!) and do her laundry. Thank you for a great stay!

Very nice home. Exactly what our family needed

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and as advertised. The owners were very responsive and quite helpful regarding the steps required for street parking. All of the rooms were clean, and the pictures were accurate. The owners left great notes on anything pertinent to the property as well. We would definitely stay here again. We only gave 4 vs 5 stars due to some of the dishes being dirty and the window in the kitchen door having no privacy. We taped a towel over the window and we washed the dirty dishes as quick fixes. We were very happy with the entire experience overall and highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Milwaukee!

Owner's Response: Hi John - So happy you enjoyed your stay! We are very sorry if you found some dirty dishes. Not sure if we left some dishes in the dishwasher or where you found them. We will be careful not to let that happen again! Also the back hall is private to this unit only so no one would be able to see in the back door window that leads to the stairs. Thanks again for staying with us! We enjoyed having you!!!

Property was excellent and suited all of our needs

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

Wonderful size for 1 to 2 couples or small family. Kitchen was well stocked and includes a dishwasher. Well-behaved pets allowed. Great to have a semi-private backyard. The owners were very responsive and helpful with things like parking. Internet was available and reliable.

Possible Cons:

All the floors were extremely squeaky and loud. This was not an issue for us, but if any of your fellow guests walk around even a little bit while you're sleeping, you'll probably wake up. The TV is antenna based and sometimes spotty. There are plenty of channels, but if you plan on watching a specific event, you may need to make other arrangements.

Such a sweet, charming place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great--it's old and marvelously creaky, and has just enough charm/character to make you feel at home but not so much that you feel like you're crashing in some stranger's eccentric apartment. :) Great location--we are former MKE residents who were visiting to see friends, and it was a great starting point for our expeditions.
