Welcome to the amazing city of Milwaukee that I call my home. My place is situated in the heart of the trendy east side.
If you have questions about what to see and do while you are in town just ask, I love to share my city with visitors.
The apartment is in a great Eastside location just off of North Ave and Prospect Ave and within walking distance to plenty of shopping, restaurants, theatres and nightlife.
Walking distance to Bradford Beach and Lake Michigan (4 blks) and the Milwaukee Art Museum (1 mile), Discovery World (1.1 miles) Summerfest grounds (1.2 miles), Lakefront Brewery (1.2 miles)
And within 5 min by car/bus: Jazz in the Park/Cathedral Square, UWM, MSOE, MATC, the Bradley Center, Frontier Airlines Convention Center, US Cellular Arena, Pabst Theater, Milwaukee Theater, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, Broadway Theater Center, and Milwaukee Public Museum, Harley Davidson Museum
And within 15 min by car/bus:, Miller Park and The Milwaukee Airport, and Bayshore Mall.
There is a bus stop on the corner and cabs are one call away but so much is within walking distance you really have no need for either.
The Oak Leaf Trail running and bike path leading from downtown north to Milwaukee River parks and northshore is only a few blocks away. Launch your kayak or canoe in the Milwaukee River or Lake Michigan, rent a paddleboat on the lagoon, or just go fly a kite in Veterans Park.
There is also well-equipped kitchen including range, dishwasher and 'fridge you wish to prepare a meal and dine in. Plenty of grocery options nearby including Beans & Barley, Whole Foods, Koppa's neighborhood grocery store and Glorioso's Italian Market.
Wireless internet, DVD plaver, Netflix, Washer/Dryer in building, free parking outside in lot as well as assigned underground heated parking.

Just meet to drop off the keys and show around the apartment. Drop keys in the lobby on check out.
My place is right off North Ave and close to several bus stops as well as plenty of cabs as well as uber and lyft and easy parking on my block and includes heated underground parking if you have your own car.
Other Things to Note
Enjoy Milwaukee, it is truly a great city once you experience it, check out my guidebook for some of my favorite places.
No smoking. No pets. No kids.
I am flexible with check-in and check-out times.
For my first airbnb experience, this couldn't have gone better. Katie was very thorough and timely in her communications. The apartment is located in a convenient area, very walkable and with plenty of dining/drink choices nearby - her guide lists many great options. I had a car, but I would gladly have gone without it.
Overall, very pleased and would stay again.
Katie's studio apartment was just like the pictures. All the amenities of home in a cozy space. Katie was very organized and kept the process of checking in and checking out simple and predictable. No surprises. Comfy bed and high quality towels combined with Katie's willingness to share her coffee, beer etc. made us feel right at home. Great location and a good value. Most of all, it was quiet ..... makes sleeping through the night a breeze.
The apartment was nice and clean and located by many restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. Very enjoyable!
Having never used airbnb prior to my stay at Katie's, I truly wasn't sure what to expect. However, Katie was extremely professional and communicated excellently throughout the process of renting the space. From key pick up to check out, there was no confusion. The space itself was very clean and cozy. The area made for very cheap uber rides to downtown and parking was very easy. Would definitely stay here again!
The apartment was a in a great location for seeing some of the best of Milwaukee. Katie was very helpful and provided us with a detailed list of places to visit. She was flexible and open with her communication. The space had everything that you might need and felt much more spacious than I expected for a studio. Overall we had a great stay!
Katie communicated very well in the weeks leading up to the visit and provided lots of information about the room and the surrounding neighborhood. Everything was clean and in great working order at the apartment and I had a very enjoyable stay.
We loved our stay here, the host was very responsive during the reservation process as well as for check-in and check-out. The apartment is with-in walking distance to one of Milwaukee's best night-out areas for drinks and food. The space was just as listed, clean and inviting. If we need a place to stay in Milwaukee again, we will definitely look for an opening here first.

I get that we weren’t put on this planet to dominate it, but to live with it, side by side, and am keen on companies that strive to work with the environment, rather than against it.
