About the property

2 [Queen] Bedrooms, 2 Full Bath; Maxiumum of 4 Adults

Thank you for taking a peek at my listing as I know you have numerous options. Others claim location and amenities but a discerning guest will appreciate that this property was prepared with only YOUR needs in mind. A perfectly central location, secure underground parking, spotless accommodations, and an attentive host make this listing a Milwaukee BEST!

The Space

My belongings are elsewhere. It is one of very few Milwaukee rentals which is truly ALL YOURS once you arrive. If you prefer the owner-lived-in experience, this may not the right "stay" for you.

Given the number of car “break-ins” occurring in the city, my property is again one of the few which offers a coveted secure, assigned, underground parking space.

There are lovely city and lake views to be enjoyed. And a balcony to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails.

Furnishings are new and stylish with a touch of whimsy. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked should you decide to dine in.

Important Note: There is no longer pool/spa features.

The Neighborhood

The location is perfectly central for those who enjoy walking to restaurants and city sites. You will be surprised by the relatively quiet location that is just footsteps from all that makes the Downtown Milwaukee area special.

Warmer weather offers music-filled parks farmer’s markets, bike trails, river kayaking, trolleys, Lake Michigan sailing and beach volleyball. And our famous street and ethnic festivals; Jazz in the Park, Bastille Days, Irish Fest, Italian Fest, German Fest, and

the World's Largest Music Festival – Summerfest. ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.

In cooler weather, take in the Calatrava Art Museum, Bradly Center sports, or well-know performances of symphony, dance, theater, and opera at the Historic Pabst, Turner Hall, Riverside, Milwaukee Repertory, and Marcus Center. ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.

How convenient...There is a grocery and liquor store just a block away.

Walking Distance to Venues:

Pabst Theater .5m

BMO Harris Bradley Center (Bucks, concerts, entertainment) .7m

Milwaukee Art Museum (on Lake Michigan) .7m

Henry Maier Festival Park (Summerfest Grounds) - .9m

Riverside Theater - .8m

Wisconsin [Convention] Center .9m

UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena .7m

Milwaukee Public Market [Historic Third Ward] .9m

Miller Park (i.e. Brewers) and Harley Davidson are just a 10 minute drive.

Interested in a stay?

I have been fortunate to have many wonderful guests over many years. They receive great accommodations for their Milwaukee visits and I receive caring guests.

Please provide full names of potential adult guests, where you reside, and the reason for your visit when making an inquiry. This allows me to get to know you a bit. Much appreciated!

Interaction with Guests

I or my partner greet all guests to ensure you are comfortably settled, safely parked, connected to the wifi, and know how to operate the Smart TV. Many folks tell me how rare and helpful it is to have such an attentive host. If you prefer a self-check in, that is fine.

I love Milwaukee and I want you to also. I dine out often and can direct you to restaurants truly deserving of your patronage. And please enjoy a free visit to our iconic Museum of Art on the Lakefront. I also have access to to amazing BUCK's center court seats and as an avid subscriber to the theater, symphony, ballet, and opera, I can recommend and sometimes obtain discounted tickets.

NBA fan? Ask about access to amazing center-court CLUB seats for two.

About Gail

A gal from the Midwest who enjoys traveling and meeting new folks. Finding this a great venue to feed those passions. Love the theater, art, hiking, canoeing, cooking and eating out! Never smoke and although I understand pets are great family members, I don't have any. Oh yes... I'm a bit of a clean-freak.

Getting to know my guests is the the best part of hosting. Sometimes by the time they arrive, I already feel we are friends. Occasionally we even have coffee or enjoy a meal together. When I started my hosting journey, I didn't realize how enjoyable it would be to help provide others a wonderful stay in my city. I love Milwaukee and want my guests to also. It is a charming big-little city with much to offer. And I want the space I provide them to be part of what makes their stay special.

I have a number of properties; all in a very enjoyable and walkable area of downtown Milwaukee. If I cannot accommodate a guest's needs, I even help them find alternatives. So don't be shy and ask!

All the comforts of home and the luxury of a vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

Gail's apartment was even better than we expected! It was spotless and had fun and comfortable decor - especially the couch and beds. The views are really gorgeous - especially at sunrise. The location was right in the middle of downtown activities - but on a quiet, tree lined street. Gail was a great hostess, staying in touch with us until we were settled in, and providing great suggestions for restaurants in the area. Even the local coffee beans she provided were wonderful. I hated to leave and hope to come back again next year.

Wonderful long weekend in Milwaukee

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two adult children visited Milwaukee for a family wedding, and decided to stay on the lower east side. The apartment/condo we stayed in (8th floor), was perfect for us. Not only was it convenient to the places we needed to get to, but the location itself was outstanding. Easy walking distance to the lakefront and downtown. There is a nice grocery store two blocks away, and couple of nice breakfast/lunch spots nearby as well.

Kent and Gail were excellent to work with, and were very accommodating, as our check in time was a moving target because of a delayed flight. The apartment was very clean, and contained all the extra's that we needed. The views of downtown were beautiful, particularly the night lights. Lots of good literature in the apartment of things to do, places to eat, shopping, etc.

The building and neighborhood was very, very quiet. Street parking is at a premium, so it was a big plus to have a designated spot in the underground garage. If downtown Milwaukee and/or the lakefront are your primary destinations, you could not find a better place to stay.
