About this listing
Private bedroom and use of whole bottom floor with private entrance through garage. Walking distance to Camp Randall and UW campus and 1 mile from the Capitol and downtown Madison. Also: access to a small yoga studio. Listed by two easy-going 30-something renters who love meeting new people.
Our house is in the heart of the Dudgeon Monroe neighborhood, one of the best places to live in Madison. There are some great spots nearby including Vic Allen's coffee shop, Brasserie V Pub, Trader Joe's for groceries, New Orleans Take Out and a breakfast favorite of Madisonians: Mickey's Dairy Bar. We are walking distance to the stadium for anyone who is coming in for a football game and close to downtown for anyone who is in Madison on business. Shawn (my fiancé) and I are very flexible - he can stay up late to let people in at any hour.
Guests have a private entrance through the garage, private use of the entire bottom floor of the house, a private bathroom with a shower, access to a small fridge and on-site laundry for a small fee.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to interact with guests and are also happy to give them space and privacy if that works better. We go out frequently to get dinner or attend events and guests who like to mingle are invited to come with us if and when we do.
It's the best neighborhood in Madison!
Bus stop that picks up every 15 minutes during business hours is one block away. Bike path that goes downtown is right across the street.
My home is my sanctuary. Please respect it as if it was your treasure, too.
What a wonderful place to stay and very accommodating on such short notice. The space is absolutely as described. It was our own peaceful place on a quick trip to Madison. And the bed! Oh my goodness, that was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, kind of like a cloud. We didn't get a chance to meet, but I hope we get the chance to return again and say hello.
The previous listing descriptions were accurate - fantastic location, welcoming and helpful host, and everything you need. This is a serene, spacious hideout with a short walk to bus line, Lake Wingra and the Arboretum. Would definitely stay here again and recommend!
Katie was an excellent host. She made access easy and allowed ample time for privacy during our stay. The neighborhood was both quiet and convenient, and her helpful suggestions on restaurants were much appreciated.
The place is nice and well located. I didn't see Katie a lot but she was very kind to me when I arrived. I recommend this place
The place was so nice and neat. We loved staying there and made our Madison stay very pleasant.
Great location. The neighborhood is beautiful! The basement was clean and nice, however it is white cool and the floor above is very, very thin regarding noise. Katie was accommodating and friendly.
It was a wonderful first experience with AirBnB. Katie has a lovely home (and great taste in books!) we enjoyed having our own entrance and privacy for sure, and our favorite part was how close everything was to walk/drive to. I recommend going to the local neighborhood coffee shop for coffee in the morning. Thanks for hosting us!
