Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as preferred by the guests
Church Hill Heights is a fairly new neighborhood on the east side of Madison. Its convenient location is easy to find, close to shopping, seven miles south of the capitol, and nine miles to the University of Wisconsin.
If you have a vehicle, park in our private driveway or in the garage. If you are interested in public transportation, the closest bus stop is a short walk to the corner of Hayes and Portage Roads. Our city is known for it's friendliness to bikers and provides many biking paths for those who prefer to conserve gas and the environment. Finally, there are several cab companies available or if you are used to Uber rides, well we have those to!
Other Things to Note
Madison is Wisconsin's capitol city. It is a nice place to live, work and attend school. It offers many annual events that caters to people from all walks of life. I moved to Madison to attend college at the University, 46 years later I'm still here enjoying everything Madison has to offer!
No Loud Parties; Respect my Neighbors
HAVE FUN AND RELAX
Fred made us feel very welcome from the beginning, with a nice handshake, a tour of the place, a fruit basket and cool water. The house was so clean and comfortable, the yard was beautiful, and the place was very quiet. We had a lovely stay.
Jill met me at the house and showed me around pointing out where everything was kept. She was very friendly. Fred had left me a fresh basket of fruit, bottled water and there were other condiments and spices to use. Anytime I had a question during my trip, I sent Fred a message and he got back to me right away.
This was the perfect house and location for me as my daughters live just outside of Madison in Leeds and my siblings live in Milwaukee. So it was a great place to host my guests and for me to travel to visit them.
The weather was beautiful and we spent a lot of time on the back porch visiting as well as grilling out. The house is spacious, clean and in a very nice, quiet neighborhood. There is also a playground park a block away. Perfect for young children.
I normally stay with family members when I travel back to the Midwest from California, but this was so much better: having my own space and place. I highly recommend staying at Fred's house.
A very nice place that was perfect for our group of four. Fred had to go out of town so we only met him as we were leaving. He was personable and welcoming. If we make this trip again, this would be at the top of our list of places to stay.
Definitely will be back to stay here when I'm in madison. The pics are exact but don't do it justice of how cozy and homey this place really is. Fred is the most accommodating and the beautiful abode is large, clean, and feels like your home away from home. Located near east towne mall with all the necessities very close it was perfect for our stay. Don't wait to book this wonderful place, you definitely want this one before anyone else!
We had a great time at Fred's place. It really is better than the pictures. Very comfortable, and big enough for two families (there's room for the kids in the basement).
Fred even left bagels and Kuerig coffee pods for us. We'll definitely be back!
Fred's place is very lovely. It is as nice or nicer than the listing shows with very comfortable beds and beautiful living spaces. He has everything you could need (ie a hairdryer, shampoo, coffee, etc.). He contacted me prior to my arrival to make arrangements as he was out of town when I was there. His friend was there to let me in and show me around with no problems. The neighborhood is on the outskirts of Madison, so not really centrally located, but very nice and a 15-20 min drive to downtown or the near west side. Thanks for a lovely place to spend a fall weekend.
Fred was a superb host. I put up two actors for a film shoot here, and they loved the peace, quiet, cleanliness, and charm of Fred's place.
About the Host, Fred
I am a retired police officer. I currently work part time providing transportation with a local taxi cab company and I also work as a security guard. My partner, Jill and I, enjoy exercising and riding bikes. When I turned 50 years old, I rode my bike (as in bicycle) from the west coast to the east coast three thousand seven hundred and fifty miles in fifty days. We are crazy about football and love going to the games. We also love to connect with our adult children and our five grandsons. Jill's first grand daughter was born this year on January 3rd. Socializing is an important aspect of our lives as it brings about meaningful relationships. We are excited and find it natural to be hosts to others who visit our wonderful city. We will do our best to accommodate our guests and to make them feel welcome. We would like to someday go to Europe. We also love good food, good wine, and live music, but we can't leave out beer and cheese, after all we are Wisconsinites!
