  • This was my first time using airbnb - James and Yvette exceeded our expectations. They were warm, inviting and incredibly helpful throughout our weekend getaway to Milwaukee. The room was great and we had the perfect amount of privacy. Having lived in Milwaukee their entire lives, they helped us identify where to eat, explore and were ready with maps by the time we arrived at their home. We even shared a delicious, home-made breakfast before we left on Sunday morning.

    Would definitely stay here again when I return to Milwaukee!

  • Yvette was a wonderful host during my very brief stay in Milwaukee. The check in procedure was very straightforward, and I instantly felt very welcomed and cared for. Her home is beautiful and is located in a very convenient neighborhood. Though my plans were cut short, I immensely enjoyed by brief visit and would love to stay with Yvette and her family again!

  • I had a wonderful stay in Milwaukee, where I had the pleasure to meet Yvette and her lovely family. This is my first time using airbnb and have to say that the experience was great. No need to use hotels anymore. Yvette, James and Robert are generous people who made me feel at home at all time. If I ever go back to Milwaukee, here is where I will stay.

  • Yvette and family were amazingly warm, welcoming and accommodating. As both my first Airbnb and first trip to the States, I was made to feel immediately at home in the clean and well-appointed surrounds. The room is comfortable and sufficiently private, curtained off from the rest of the house and affording you your own entrance, and the neighbourhood is within walking distance of the river and downtown.

    Happy to help in any way and a delight to talk to, though just as willing to leave you to your own devices should you desire, Yvette was all one could ask for in a host. They went so far as to provide breakfast – James is an excellent cook, and his frittata variations justly famed. I warmly recommend the Murrells to anyone after a relaxing, stress-free Milwaukee stay.

  • Yvette and her family were so friendly, laid back and positive it felt like we were staying with Long time friends. She had fresh berries and bananas waiting for us when we arrived and the space and her home were very inviting. Her home is a short bike ride or drive to the lakefront brewery which gives a great tour for 7 bucks and convenient to the water street nightlife and Brady street restaurants we even biked into downtown and back without a problem. Amazing people and wish we could have gotten to know them more. Milwaukee was a blast, short but sweet.

  • Yvette and her family were great. The room/home was as advertised and an easy walk to lots of nice shops and restaurants. I would absolutely recommend staying with Yvette. I wish I had more time in town.

  • My wife and I really enjoy our stay at Ivette and James house. Their place is full of good energy and joy. They are an outstanding hosts and for sure we will choose them again if we visit Milwaukee in the future. The location of the house is really good and it is walking distance to most of the areas. Muchas gracias

  • Staying with Yvette was an enriching experience! She was so gracious and helpful. She went above my exceptions in assisting me by picking me up and dropping me off for my convention! (I gave her an unexpected taxi fair of course)!

    The home has such great energy and my room offered a peaceful rest! I slept 9 hours and I normally get 5-6 per night!

    I hope to return to her home again on my annual visit to Milwaukee!

  • Yvette, her husband James and the rest of her family are very nice people! Upon arrival we ate Yvette's homemade chocolate chip banana bread that was delicious! Right away, we were brown away by Yvette's friendliness, we loved the way she interacted with her neighbors and they clearly loved her as well!
    She also gave us great recommendations for places to eat and rent bikes.
    The room itself was comfy and the futon was pretty comfortable.
    There is definitely the feeling of staying with a family, so if you are looking for more of a family oriented place to stay, Yvette and James's place is the place:)
