My cute, comfortable home is centrally located to public transportation & has easy access to most interstates. It is 7 miles from downtown Milwaukee. It's the lower unit of my duplex & has a privacy fenced back yard. I know you will love it.

The Space

This (email hidden) smaller home(lower of my duplex). The whole house has hardwood or tile floors. The master has a king size bed, the 2nd BR would have a blow up queen size bed. Clean bedding would be provided along with towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, blow dryer, etc. I want you to feel like you are at home when you are here. You are also welcome to use the couch for sleeping if you would like. I have a privacy fenced in back yard, which is great for kids/pets.

Guest Access

You will have full access to the house with fridge, mini fridge, dishwasher, basement with washer and dryer, grill outside, and the garage (based on size of vehicle). Keep in mind this is my primary home, I will clear out some of the closet area so you have somewhere to put clothes, etc. Just know that you will see a lot of my stuff here, including food in the cupboards, because I do live here. I will be moving out while you stay. I also have 2 dogs which go with me everywhere, so no worries, they won't be at the house, however, if you have a pet allergy, I wanted to make sure it was known that they are normally here.

Interaction with Guests

I have a pretty crazy schedule usually. If I know a little bit in advance that you would like me to show you around the city or join you with anything, I can do my best to make it happen. I would also be more than happy to help point you in the right direction and let you enjoy your time here without interference. Which ever makes you happiest.

The Neighborhood

I love that the Hank Aaron State Trail is conveniently located at the end of my street. Heading east, towards downtown Milwaukee, it is paved, which is great for running, biking, or just a leisurely walk. Going west, it is still gravel but that by no means makes it any less special. I am located about 3-4 miles from Miller Park where the Milwaukee Brewers play, about 5 minutes from Wauwatosa bars and restaurants, 10 minutes from downtown Milwaukee which has unlimited restaurants, night life, several beer brewery's, and theaters.

Getting around

If you want public transportation, the bus stop is 2 blocks from here (1-2 minute walk), and it is about a $20 cab ride to/from downtown Milwaukee. The house is right next to all major interstates which makes it extremely convenient for shopping (4 shopping malls within 8 miles), grocery stores, health food stores, really anything you could want. I will be giving you one of my garage spots (depending on the size of the vehicle, trucks don't really fit) and there is also street parking up to 3 times per month per vehicle for free from the city. Unfortunately I don't have a say in street parking other than that. If you need a ride from the airport, it is also about $20 cab ride, or if I'm not working, I'd be willing to pick you up. It is only about 15 minutes to the airport from my doorstep.

Other Things to Note

Check in will generally be 2pm and check out at noon. I can be flexible with that based on the previous or current people staying in the house.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place to stay the night before a half marathon! Felt very rested and was only a 20 minute drive to the downtown area.

  • This house is NOT newly remodeled, nor cozy. It's directly next to the freeway, very LOUD. Her upstairs tenants were up til 2am stomping around, dog barking, doors slamming and playing LOUD music. I should have searched for Jessica on (website hidden). You should. Read her posts about her "lousy, noisy, rude tenants". Reading it; I now realize they probably did it on purpose.

    The best part of her quiet location, was the road construction not 15’ from the pillow under my head; 7am sharp! The house shook from the drilling and breaking up asphalt. Jessica, thank you so much for assuring me a quiet location for my business trip, even though you later confessed to receiving a notification about the roadwork from the city. You are a real gem.

    The family room furniture is gross. It has stains and burns in it, it is sticky; not to mention the terrible odor. Yuck. The bedroom furniture has scratches all over it. The wood floor is covered in stains and scratches.

    There is one remodeled room; the bath. It was fine, except for the window without any covering. From your throne, you will enjoy a view of at least 4 neighbors 2 story homes; better yet, they have a perfect view of you from their windows past her dinky hard.

    The 2nd bedroom did not have a door on it or a queen size mattress as advertised. There was no room in the closets or dresser or nightstand drawers. I was told I could not use them. No counter for the bathroom sink, so no room for your things in there, either. This was a real problem for me; since I had suits that needed pressing and hanging for work.

    The upstairs neighbor has a huge, aggressive dog, so be careful. The listing didn't state that there were animals at the property. They leave it unattended in the backyard. Since the backdoor was the only door with a working lock (the front was locked with a lockbox on it; she said there was no way to use it) you may have to wait until the dog goes upstairs before you leave the property. That or risk your well being by tempting the beast.

    Just remember to take your valuables with you, since all the windows across the front of the house are really old and stuck open. Also, be sure your laptop is secure. Someone tried to hack into mine. Technology is my profession, so mine is locked down tight, but if you don't know how to do that, you should get it done before staying at this house.

    Slow internet. Broken window blinds (just look at the picture she has posted).

    Don't let her trick you into communicating outside of this website; that's her way of avoiding accountability.

    I took photos. Feel free to contact me so you can see for yourself.

  • Jessica's home was comfortable and clean, she had toiletries and food for us, which was great after a long plane trip :) (email hidden) to stay!

  • All went well for our visit at Jessica's home in western Milwaukee. Her home was clean, tidy and very well-stocked when we arrived. Although we didn't meet Jessica, she was very responsive to all our messages and communication was clear.

  • Such an awesome renter and rental! Jessica was quick to respond, polite and professional the whole way through, from booking to execution. The apartment is so beautiful and quiet. Upstairs neighbors are hardly noticeable. The king-sized bed is more comfortable than my own! Sheets were sooo soft and pillows so restful. Jessica also includes lots of little touches, like candles, a bath set, stocked water fridge, etc. to make you feel welcome.

    My first airbnb experience and definitely not my last. Can't wait to stay at the same place next time I visit. Highly recommend!

I'm fun, out going, full of life and love travelling as well, which is what prompted me adding my listing on here. Someone was nice enough to rent out their house on here, and I was extremely grateful for their hospitality, so I wanted to offer someone the same. I love the outdoors like hiking with my pups, kayaking, boating, riding motorcycles, snowboarding, and any beach.I also enjoy sporting events, cooking, a good glass of wine, cleaning (yes, I actually I admitted that I like cleaning), and socializing in general. I love spending time with family and friends and my 2 pups. I enjoy meeting new people and creating/being a part of new adventures.
