Our spacious home, over 100 y.o sits by Kilbourn Park where you can listen to live music from Summer through Spring, and watch squirrels in the fall. We are 5 mins to Lakefront Brewery 10mins stroll to Brady, 15 minutes to downtown.

The Space

The house is over 100 years old so creaking is included as part of your stay.

Please note that the bedrooms are not fully closed off to sound there is a space above the door which means noise carries through the rooms. We are sound sleepers - but this may be a problem for some guests!

There is access to wi-fi, laundry facilities and can provide you with towels and toiletries if you have not brought your own.

We have an air mattress which can be used if there is more than 2 in your party.

Guest Access

You can freely access the kitchen, shared bathroom and food in the fridge if you are so inclined.

There is one vintage Schwinn bicycle available if it is not in use - but on weekends you may definitely use this. The house is right off the Oak leaf bike trail - which can take you all the way down to the lake. There is parking in the driveway.

Interaction with Guests

We work during the days - but home in the evenings - so don't mind us! We can hang out if you want but you can also do your own thing. We can point you in the direction of some great brunch and dinner options nearby or further afield.

The Neighborhood

The place is located in the Riverwest neighbourhood - where there are some fantastic cafes and dining options within walking distance. The Lakefront Brewery is just under the bridge 5 minutes away,

Getting around

There are several buses to get around but I would highly recommend biking or walking to see the city.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Everything was perfect! Joyce and Alex's place was perfect for me. It was close to the Summerfest and the Art Museum and Brady Street. I rode the bicycle they provided to and from each of these each day. I also spent a day at Bradford Beach at the AVP pro beach volleyball tournament and also visited the Harley Davidson Museum. Joyce and Alex's house was clean, priced just right for me and they were the perfect hosts. I will stay with them again next time I visit Milwaukee. Very happy with your site and I am considering listing my own home.

  • What a great location! An easy walk to so much of the City. And just a few minutes from the acclaimed Lakefront Brewery. The park is adjacent to the house. Great view, when the fog doesn't roll in. Trails and walkways everywhere.
    A very basic room with shared bathroom close by. Nothing fancy. Alex and Joyce were a delight. We didn't spend much time at the house, but did enjoy the location.
    Thank you!

  • Ale and Joyce were great hosts. They let me used their bike, which was nice. The trails along the river from their house is beautiful. Breakfast was always available and varied. I had a memorable Australian breakfast with their volley ball team. I had a great stay! Thanks Alex and Joyce!

  • It was wonderful even though our hosts were on vacation while we were there. The house was conveniently located and everything was easily accessible. The house is truly on a hill and has amazing views.

  • We had a very good experience with Alex (Joyce was out of town for business). Alex was very accommodating, warm, friendly, and helpful. The room was exactly as described. The location by the park was great! "By the park" is an understatement, in a good way: being adjacent to the house, it is a very convenient spot to have a picnic or stealth happy hour with an excellent view :)

  • Alex and Joyce were very thoughtful and friendly hosts. The room is very basic, but it's clean and the towels are amazingly soft. The shared bathroom is right outside the bedrooms and was also very well maintained. I never felt like I was in someone else's space, and was very comfortable there. The house is close by just about everything, and nothing was more than a 7 minute drive away (Brady St. is totally within walking distance). The neighborhood is fine, and they are at the end of a street, which then turns into a huge and lovely green space.

  • Joyce and Alex are wonderful hosts! Though we never got to meet them in person, they were very helpful and hospitable through email communication before and during our trip. Their home has great views of the river, park, and city, and it's just a short walk to some great breweries and restaurants. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Hello! We are currently both working professionals in Milwaukee and moved from Australia to the wonderful winterland of Wisconsin. We have stayed with airbnb hosts in a few different places in Europe and in NYC - and thought it was such a great idea and since we have a free room here - we thought we would open it up to visitors too! We look forward to meeting and hosting you.
