About this listing
In the fall and winter we typically stay there ourselves Mon-Th night, but can make other arrangements if those days are needed.
3D includes a secure parking space (#13) in an underground (heated in winter) garage.
It is a contemporary remodeled one bedroom ( 1 bedroom or 1 BR ) condominium @ Prospect & Brady on the lower Eastside, one of Milwaukee's most walkable neighborhoods, near the Lakefront, Downtown and the Eastside. New windows complete the unit in a quiet, ideally located high-rise condominium building.
Walk to the lakefront, McKinley Marina, Milwaukee Community Sailing Center, the Milwaukee Yacht Club, Bradford Beach, Veterans Park, Juneau Park, McKinley Park, Back Bay Park, Milwaukee Art Museum, Charles Allis Art Museum, Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, Discovery World, Shank Hall, Jazz-in-the-Park (2 folding chairs are provided), Cathedral Square, East Town, Milwaukee Public Market, Historic Third Ward, Maier Festival Park (home of Summerfest & Milwaukee Ethnic Festivals), Lakeshore State Park, shops and restaurants too numerous to mention, and Brady St or North Ave restaurants, bars and nightlife.
The Oak Leaf Trail running and bike path leading to/from downtown, north to Milwaukee River parks and northshore communities is accessed less than one block from 3D. Launch your kayak or canoe in the Milwaukee River or on Lake Michigan, rent a paddleboat on the lagoon, or just go fly a kite in Veterans Park; they're all a short walk away. Or relax after a walk on one of 3 roof-top decks to view sunrises, sunsets, summer weekend fireworks, or the stars and city lights.
3D is within 5 minutes +/- by car or bus to UWM, MSOE, MATC, the Bradley Center, Delta Airlines Convention Center, US Cellular Arena, Pabst Theater, Milwaukee Theater, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, Broadway Theater Center, and Milwaukee Public Museum; less than :10 to Marquette University and the Harley-Davidson Museum; less than 15 minutes to Miller Park baseball stadium, Bayview and the vitality of S Kinickinic Ave, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay, Glendale and Bayshore Town Center. Via your bicycle 3D is less than 15 minutes to the convention center or :30 to/from the Lake Express Ferry.
There are over 50 restaurants within walking distance in summer months and more than half that many on very cold winter days, but 3D also has a galley kitchen equipped with range, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator w/ ice-maker, coffee maker, toaster, and pots & pans, etc. if you wish to prepare a meal and dine in. We can help with grocery suggestions from Beans & Barley to Whole Foods, Koppa's neighborhood grocery store or Glorioso's Italian Market, the Milwaukee Public Market or Metro Market. They each have a deli if your time is better spent kayaking on Lake Michigan, biking or hiking along the Milwaukee River, checking out museums, or walking along the RiverWalk from north of downtown to the Historic Third Ward or just shopping on Brady Street. 3D's Walk Score: 91 - A Walker's Paradise.
If you plan to use public transportation, 3D is on bus Routes 15 and 30 and less than 5 blocks to Route 10. If you are flying into Milwaukee, you can take the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) Greenline Express bus to 3D from the airport for $2.25 in a lovely ride of about 35 minutes. It has a stop within 1/2 block of 3D. (The Greenline can also be used to go north to Bayshore Towne Center in about 15-20 minutes.)
From May 30-September 8 you can also ride the Downtown Trolley. It's a 3 block walk to the Loop which can transport you to East Town, Westown, Water Street, Old World Third Street, the Historic Third Ward, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and many favorite spots in Milwaukee. The Trolley Loop operates 11 am to 9 pm, Wednesday – Saturday. Rides are $1 per person, round trip. Visit the Milwaukee Trolley Loop website for more info.
Cable television, a DVD player, and high-speed Internet connection, wired or wifi are provided to keep you connected or entertained when in the unit.
Come enjoy Milwaukee and all it has to offer; we'd love to host your visit. Check-out our Guidebook: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/232616#guidebook on the 3D Airbnb website for more reasons to choose 3D @ Prospect Avenue & Brady Street and our page on social media. (Note: If you're not a past or regular guest, any stay must be for a minimum of two-nights.)
You will have the apartment to yourselves including a galley kitchen with pass-thru to the living/dining area, bedroom with a very comfortable queen-size bed, desk, chairs and ample closet space, and a bathroom with shower over the tub.
If driving you have access to a secure, underground parking space in the basement of the building. (The garage is heated in winter months.)
Our guests also are welcome to check out views of the city from the lakefront to Brady Street, and downtown to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) on the eastside from the 3 roof top decks as long as the solarium is not reserved by an owner for a private party or the Board for their monthly meeting.
Interaction with Guests
I look forward to meeting and greeting our guests when possible. We've found this more personal touch to be one of the advantages of Airbnb on our travels compared to less personal hotel stays, but our schedules and our guests' arrival times are not always in sync, so we have the ability to enable you to check-in remotely (see our Instructions sent prior to your arrival). I've found some guests actually prefer the flexibility of not having to commit to an arrival time, as well as some who like the more private, less imposing, impersonal ability to feel like they're just "coming home" to 3D.
Let me know your preference and planned timing and we will make the appropriate arrangements.
The lower eastside and Brady Street area is one of Milwaukee's most walkable neighborhoods with many amenities unavailable elsewhere in the City. From 3D it is a short walk to the lakefront for sailing or other boating activities at McKinley Marina, kite flying, or paddle boating on the Veterans Park lagoon; running, biking or walking north or south on the Oak Leaf Trail. There are more coffee shops, restaurants, drinking establishments, within easy walking distance of 3D than probably anywhere else in the city. You'll also find unique shops, art museums, pharmacies, groceries, and residences in this interesting neighborhood. If you like to walk it isn't too far to all areas of Milwaukee's downtown, the North Avenue business district, the eastside, and the historic Third Ward, but public transportation (and the trolley in summer) are readily available as well.
Two bus lines are available within a block of 3D and a 3rd within 5 blocks.
Parking is included in the secure, underground garage space.
The MCTS Greenline express bus will bring you to within 1/2 block of 3D from the airport for $2.25 in about 35 minutes. A taxi will take about 20-25 minutes and cost $30-35 or so.

About the Host, Jo
I love to travel with my husband, and sometimes alone, and am delighted to have found the airbnb community. I particularly enjoy sailing, scuba diving, and visiting new cities or landscapes we find ourselves in, exploring architecture, the natural surroundings, seeking out art museums, and meeting new people. We have friends all across the country to visit and a long list of places we hope to travel to, so we may be calling to be hosted by you.
As a host I've owned 3D @ Prospect & Brady near downtown Milwaukee, a one bedroom condominium at N Prospect Ave & E Brady St, on Milwaukee's lower eastside since 1997. I'm familiar with the neighborhood, its conveniences and attractions and would be happy to host your visit. See my listing @ www.airbnb.com/rooms/232616 as well as (website hidden).
