Ray es muy agradable y la casa es como en las fotos, el paradero de bus esta a tres cuadras, y para el precio ninguna queja, espero volver algun dia, thnks Ray.
Ray is very nice. He is an easy-going landlord and his girlfriend is also friendly.
Thats the best of the house together with a very confortable matress, at least in the bedroom where I stayed.
In what concerns the rest, I would not recomend somebody to stay there. Although they have a potentialy beautiful hose, it is completely messy and quite dirty.
Ray neglected it, but the neighbourhood is actually dangerous. You don't feel safe all. Every taxi driver who drove me there told me the same: drugs, robbers, shootings...
Thank so much for Pablo's comment. I lived here much longer than Pablo does. I know my neighborhood much better than he did and other taxi driver. My neighborhood are mostly peaceful asian. You won't get robbed when you walk at the day time. The downtown of milwaukee is very special, drugs, robbers, shootings. However, it happened at the night. At the day time, you will be totally fine and okay.
During Pablo's staying, the house was full of guests. It was very difficult to maintain everything in good order and completely clean. Some guests used the kitchen and didn't clean it very well, including Pablo. Some guests with multiple baggage stayed at the living room. That made the house look messy. However, I have usual maintain. Since Pablo was not at home so much, he didn't see it.
Words cannot describe the abysmal pit that I stayed in. The shower head was attached to the wall by a rubber band. Cracks were on every part of the wall. I used a wash rag to dry myself off. It was disgusting and dispocable. Do not stay here.
It is very busy month in June. John is not only guest that I host at that time. Other guests have different staying experience and reviews from John's. If they had same experience as John, they will have similar reviews as John's. It exaggerates what he said that the cracks were on every part of the wall. If it is true, other guests should have reviews or comments on this before his staying. I have hosted over 400 people, nobody is like this. The towel I provided is very clean and has much better quality than most hotels could provide even though it is not brand new any more.
During my short interaction with John, he is not very nice and won't answer me or look at me when I said hi to him in the morning. When he checked out, the room was very messy, full of trash and it took me a long time to clean them. I couldn't imagine how the people could live like this.
The accommodation was good, exactly as shown in the pictures, Ray is a very good person and is there to help you any time. Shared Kitchen and Shared Bathroom are good too. I only had issue with parking my car, follow Ray's instructions regarding odd date and even date parking, otherwise you will get a ticket for sure.
Host was really nice and attentive, house was clean and got everything you need, although it kinda freaked me out the first time entering the neighborhood but everything gets better the second time entered it, like they said, people won't rob someone living in the same neighborhood, feel safe to stay with Ray as this is a really nice place to stay for the price
I just want to make a statement that nobody will rob you. My house locates in the heart of milwaukee, nearby the downtown. Therefore, it is very diverse neighborhood like other city. Majority of my neighbors are Asian who are very peaceful and friendly. Nobody will rob you. I have hosted over 200 guest within a year, and nobody was robbed. I understand Chang's concern since he came from Memphis, TN which is notorious for bad security.
Check in and stay at home, don't hang out in the extremely late night. You will be fine.
Good location, just needed to sleep after arriving late in the evening. Ray was attentive and replied quickly to my inquiry.

About the Host, Ray
I have hosted over 500 guests from over 20 countries within one and half years. My place is very simple, clean, easy check-in and check-out, has good location with reasonable and affordable price.
I am pursing PhD in University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, major in Medical Informatics, attempting to find prompt, cost-effectives and accurate diagnosis for cancer and thus improving health of patients with cancer based on my working experience in Mayo Clinic.
Most of time every day, I stay in my office or bedroom to read scientific papers and do my research. As a student, my life is very simple, and I am very quiet, optimistic and joyful almost every day. I do like movies, reading, hiking, biking, driving, exploring different places.
I know how important it is to have a nice and comfortable place to stay with reasonable price since I travelled a lot and stayed in many different places. Especially, I know what the tourist needs. Luckily, I have my own place available for visitors to stay in a completely unfamiliar city with reasonable and affordable price which is just 20% of hotel.
My philosophy is to be simple, win-win, helpful, beneficial, thankful, joyful, trustful, easy going, respectful. My hosting is not money making oriented, but provides an affordable place for those with limited budget or income like me as a student. I charge guest minimal for maintaining the house, paying for the tax, utilities, mortgage.
My place is not in perfect condition, like Hilton, However, everything works, and it is nice, clean, cozy, sweet and convenient for you to stay. You will feel that you will be greatly welcomed and feel to be at your home. If you are picky with high standard, and want everything is in perfect condition, my place might not be right for you.
If you are the first time user to book a place via AirBnB, my hosting is a good start to build mutual trust between host and guest. I try my best to build the reputation of AirBnB via my hosting.
95% of my guests are very nice, decent and easy to deal with. That is what I expected and I enjoyed knowing and interacting with them. However, 5% of my guests are extremely picky with very high standard. You could not fulfill them no matter what you will (website hidden) is normal with 95% in normal and 5% in extreme range. Anyway, I won't close my place because of these several picky guests. I will treat my guests extremely well.
Even though I hosted lots of guest, my hosting is not as professional or perfect as hotel. Therefore, I would like to have your advice or criticize face-to-face or private feedback from the review to improve hosting experience or service. I am extremely open mind and will take action if the advice is reasonable. I will try my best to accommodate potential guests even though I am busy with school.
Overall, the place is simple, easy, comfortable and clean. It is a good place to stay with reasonable and affordable price. No parties, no cheating, no fraud, a good place to stay. Have you expectation low when you are booking, it turns out that you will be over satisfied when you are checking out.
