The Space

Looking for the perfect space for your group during festival season? Do it in style and close enough to all of the action that you won't have to drive home at night!

•LOCATION! WALK TO FESTIVALS: Only six blocks to Summerfest grounds and Lake Michigan; no trying to drive out to a hotel or rented home outside the city after a few drinks at night; you can even stop home for lunch or dinner in the fully-stocked kitchen
•PLENTY OF SPACE: 1300+ total square feet with 14-foot ceilings
•LUXURY ACCOMMODATIONS: Hip renovated warehouse space condo with exposed Cream City brick, reclaimed timber beams, marble counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a 120" HD theater for movies/TV
•ROOMS FOR A GROUP: Two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and generous common area
•SLEEPS 6: 3 comfortable beds: 1 king, 1 queen, and one inflatable mattress with bedding (plus two couches in the living room)
•SECURE PARKING INCLUDED: I have a spot on the private ground floor of a secured parking structure less than half a block away. You need a magnetic key to enter that floor on foot, and it has a separate, private garage door that you need an opener for. I provide an opener to my guests. If you have more than one vehicle, there is paid parking available on the higher floors in that same structure via a different entrance.
•IN THE HEART OF EXCITING NIGHTLIFE: Located on bustling Water Street in the upscale Third Ward, literally feet from restaurants, bars, shopping, and the Milwaukee Public Market
•STAY IN SHAPE: Commercial treadmill available in the condo itself; Four bicycles available for use by you and your guests to explore the city or ride along the lake

For rent is a two-bedroom/two-full bathroom luxury condo located in the heart of the Third Ward, within short walking distance of all of the festivities for summer festival season! This condo offers you and your group an amazing 1300+ square feet of high-end space to spread out and enjoy your time in Milwaukee.

You and your guests will enjoy Milwaukee’s trendiest neighborhood, with brewpubs, restaurants, nightlife, and shopping right outside your door. The new, national award-winning Milwaukee Public Market is only two blocks away, and many of the city’s other dining and nightlife jewels are within an easy stroll. If you and your guests would like to explore the city by bicycle, I will provide four bikes for your use during your visit.

While you’re out taking advantage of everything the city has to offer or just relaxing at home, your car/motorcycles will be safe and secure. One reserved parking spot will be provided in a covered, private-entry parking structure less than half a block from your door. It will easily fit two motorcycles, and could accommodate three or four if you stagger them. This will be particularly convenient during the festivals, which are just a few blocks away.


The sun pours in in the morning through four ten-foot windows, giving you a view over Water Street and all of the goings-on of this restaurant-packed street. It offers a fully stocked kitchen (grab some fresh ingredients at the Public Market and whip up a meal away from the crowds), two bedrooms with comfortable beds (one king bed, one queen, and one inflatable mattress), two full bathrooms, and open living spaces with exposed Cream City brick, reclaimed timbers, and hardwood floors throughout. You’ll be tempted to kick your feet up in the living room and enjoy a movie or catch some TV on the 120-inch projector screen with theater sound system, but remember that you came to Milwaukee for all of the events outside - all within walking distance of your front door!

We’re excited to have you come to our city to take in everything on offer during festival season and beyond. We know that renting a home over the Internet is difficult, so we are committed to answering whatever questions you have about our home, the neighborhood, or whatever else you would like to know so that you feel comfortable before you book. We look forward to making your stay a memorable one!

There are other properties available in Milwaukee, but you'll struggle to find something as close to the action and the lake, as convenient, and as nice at or near this price.

Two-night minimum, but available for a few more nights if needed (price negotiable beyond three nights).

Thanks for looking!

  • Our experience with Tom was a great one from start to finish. He set us up nicely with living arrangements and parking that made it easy to navigate downtown Milwaukee. He was also very courteous if we had questions while we were staying at his place. If you want to stay downtown Milwaukee this is a great place to be both for location and comfort. Thanks Tom! We will be coming back.

  • Tom was great communicating with us and accommodating our group. The whole process was incredibly easy. The condo is in a great location minutes away from Summerfest and an easy walk to plenty of bars and restaurants. Also, thoroughly enjoyed the art throughout the apartment.

  • This was the perfect lodging option for our recent stay in Milwaukee. We were in town for a family wedding. Tom's condo allowed many of us to stay, play, and dine together without the hassle of trying to meet up while at a hotel. The accommodations were comfortable and we all enjoyed our stay.

  • I hosted a group of friends and was looking for variety from a traditional hotel. Tom’s Third Ward location is awesome, there are plenty of great places within walking distance. Tom was very friendly and accommodating with my requests and questions, and always available to communicate. The condo was very clean and organized. It was great with two very comfy beds, nice living room and table space, two bathrooms, and a spacious kitchen. Tom provided directions, as well as notes on how to use his Wi-Fi, huge projector screen, great sound system, and had helpful suggestions on local venues. He provided plenty of towels, pillows, and even a few extra beverages! Parking, which can be challenging in Milwaukee and the Third Ward, was no problem with a nearby and convenient structure. This was my first time using Airbnb. I plan to try it again, and hope my future stays are half this good. Thanks, Tom, for a great stay!

I'm guessing that since you're on this site that I am a lot like you. I prefer homes to hotels when I travel, and I have some faith in my fellow man to be a good person. I promise that I'll go above and beyond to make your trip a great one, and you'll leave here nothing short of pleasantly surprised.
