Overview

Madison Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Here’s your chance to experience the cozy comfort of an airy, cottage-like apartment, with the convenience of a downtown location.

This quiet, sunny second-floor apartment allows you the peace and quiet you deserve. Imagine the respite you’ll feel when you sink into a dreamy bed with a top-of-the-line pillow top mattress. You’ll cherish the feeling of high-thread count 100% cotton sheets on you skin. And you’ll wash away your cares in a luxurious clawfoot tub with shower.

Appointed with care by the home’s owner – a former proprietor/chef of a heralded Door County inn – this apartment includes a fully equipped kitchen. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of a washer/drier in the basement, in-unit tv and free wireless. Start the day with French press coffee on your three season porch.

Venturing out, you’ll find a host of activities within walking distance. Nearby Tenney Park offers boat launches, fishing, pontoon rides and ice skating in the winter. And you’ll find many different award-winning restaurants and coffee shops. The world-famous Barrymore Theater offers national acts and the University of Wisconsin and Madison Area Technical College campuses are each 3 miles away. The area is served by a number of bus lines and taxis are easily accessible.

Take a look at the photos and you’ll see why there’s no reason a short-term stay in Madison can’t be a memorable one.

Why Leah chose Madison

The location has the dual advantage of being close to everything this fantastic city has to offer and yet is on a very quiet street and neighborhood.

What makes this apartment unique

I love that the apartment is in such an old house and neighborhood. However, there are some quirks to the building.

A few considerations :

This is a second floor walk-up apartment in a 2 flat.

The ceilings are slightly lower than average which means that the shower height could be a little cramped for very tall people as one steps up into the claw foot tub.

Otherwise you will find that the apartment is exactly as pictured (except there is a newer TV than the one in the photo).

Perfect for our needs

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I were traveling with our 4 month old and we could not have had a better experience. This was the first time we used VRBO. The apartment was part of an old home, but it fit our needs well. We had access to a stove to boil water for our baby, and we had access to laundry, which is a huge plus with a baby! We are quite tall, so the shower was a little difficult to use, and the water was not always hot. The location was perfect for us-we had a wedding to attend, but the zoo and university were easy to access too!

Cute apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this cute and cozy apartment, and will definitely book again the next time we are in Madison. The apartment was decorated in a casual cottage style, which gave it wonderful character.The owner is very responsive and helpful. And the apartment is located in a quiet and friendly residential neighborhood, within walking distance to a few restaurants and pubs.

Love Madison

  • 4 of 5
This was our second stay at Leah's apartment in less than a year. Our first stay was for 10 nights, so we definately got to know the place. If you're looking for a chain hotel experience, as an earlier reviewer apparently was, this is not the place. If you're looking for a cool, unique place to stay in Madison, this is it. Yes, the apartment is quirky, but in a good way. Leah's place is well-located on Madison's Eastside, near all the restaurants and pubs in the Atwood area. The Eastside is, in my opinion, the best area of Madison. The neighborhood is ecletic and urban, but yet safe and quiet. You can walk to many things nearby, and are not too far from everything downtown, near the Square. Visit the nearby Olbrich Botanical Garden, Ale Asylum and One Barrel Brewing, as well as the Green Owl and Monty's Blue Plate restaurants. With a little updating, this place would rate 5 stars, but it's close. So much better than staying in a hotel!

Cozy and very clean

  • 5 of 5
Really loved my stay here, and would love to come back sometime. The apartment was super comfortable and felt very private, and it was great to grab a bath or two in the awesome tub. There are a few cool little restaurants and stores within walking distance, and Leah even provides a listing of some good ones. Had a blast!

Quaint Little Place in Madison!

  • 4 of 5
My boyfriend and I chose to stay in this adorable little apartment in a prime location to EVERYTHING you could ever need in Madison and had a truly wonderful time. It allowed us to take in the non-touristy side of Madison and really enjoy some delightful restaurants and neighborhoods.
The owner was incredibly helpful with tips on what to do and where to go. Left us a bike map and everything. I would highly recommend this location.

Although, if you are quite tall or slightly claustrophobic this might not be a good choice for you - nothing to do with anything other than the lower ceilings and some uneven floors (since it's an older house). Other than that, we had a great time!
