Great place, as promised in a great location. The hosts, both Jo & Bruce were responsive and helpful. The clean, lovely apartment with great views place made for a great first time experience with Air BnB .
We hope to return there on a future Milwaukee visit...
For other first timers, the one thing I learned is to read everything possible from the hosts and to ask any clarifying questions earlier in the process...
Jo's apartment was perfect for my stay in Milwaukee. She was quite informative on how to get there and met us at the door. The apartment was clean and comfortable, walking distance to some of the coolest bars and restaurants Milwaukee has to offer... and also, it is very warm (considering it was 5-degrees)!
Bruce and Jo were gracious hosts, meeting us at the apartment to hand over the keys and even stocking the kitchen with muffins, coffee and tea for breakfast. Their guidebook helped us plan where to eat and sites we wanted to visit. 3D is in an incredible location, we were able to walk to the lake and along streets filled with boutiques, great restaurants and bars. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!
Bruce & Jo were very responsive and helpful, and their condo was clean, comfortable, and just what I needed!
My husband and I greatly enjoyed staying in 3D @ Prospect & Brady! Bruce could not have been more accommodating and the apartment was wonderful. It was clean, well taken care of and convenient to everything we needed. All in all, delightful place to be for the holidays. While there was some construction noise, it was never really a problem and Bruce properly warned us before we arrived. My husband and I are hoping to make another trip this summer and if we do, we will definitely check out 3D @ Prospect & Brady's availability!
Jo was incredibly helpful as we traveled into Milwaukee and greeted us with some fruit, orange juice, milk, and muffins for our brief stay. It was just me and my boyfriend and was a very comfortable space. The location was really fantastic. We love wandering to various bars and restaurants, it was ideal for just that! There's a CVS and Walgreens within a half a block walk which was also convenient. And if you're interested, Venetian Nails (right beside Walgreens) is great for a manicure and pedicure! The weather was horrible when we were there, so it was really nice to have a spot in a garage to get to and from the car without getting soaked or windblown. Based on our drive around the area, I bet it would be a beautiful place to stay in the spring/summer given all the trees and marinas and such. It's also a short cab ride to many restaurants, the Public Market, casinos, and breweries... overall, really comfortable and convenient for a couple (possibly a couple and one kid if the kid is fine sleeping on the couch).
Enjoyed our stay at 3D - very comfortable place, spacious, clean, quiet and felt like home.
We appreciated Jo coming over to make sure that we were settled in and for the muffins and OJ for breakfast on the first morning.
The location is close to downtown, and with underground parking is ideal if you are visiting with a car. Plenty of stores/restaurants in walking distance.
There was some construction going on in the building - not a noise problem, but had to dodge the wet paint. This didnt spoil our stay however.
Would recommend staying at 3D
There isn't much I can say about Bruce and Jo's apartment that hasn't already been said in past reviews. The apartment was clean and in the most perfect, convenient location. We were in Milwaukee for two weeks, for work, and felt as if we were in our own home. Bruce was very attentive and took care of any small issues that came up during our stay. Bruce and Jo, as hosts, should be considered the standard off of which other hosts model their rental process. I would not hesitate to stay at 3D next time my travels bring me to Milwaukee!
Thank you for everything, Bruce and Jo! 3D was perfect: comfortable, convenient, and clean (even by my obsessive standards!). Great location for downtown events as well as lakefront activities. The local recommendations (especially Comet Cafe...yum) were perfect. I appreciate how flexible you were with our arrival and departure times...made enjoying ourselves all the better! Thanks again for ensuring a great weekend!
My dad and I stayed at 3D for two nights this weekend. The unit was as advertised - clean, comfortable, convenient, and quiet. The three pages of instructions that Bruce and Jo sent us prior to arrival were invaluable and really helped our stay go smoothly. The location is ideal - close to the lake, downtown, and restaurants. Underground parking was nice in the fall, but would be great in the winter. The solarium on the roof provides awesome views of downtown and the lake. I would definitely stay here again.
