Enjoy the convenience of a private entrance to our finished basement bed and bath suite located blocks away from Camp Randall Stadium, campus and the vibrant Monroe St neighborhood. We are also on the bus route and across the street from a bike path!
Our lower level is a bright space with a large window that supplies plenty fresh air and light. The adjacent bathroom is reserved solely for the use of guests during their stay, so feel free to decompress a little! In addition, the suite also includes a den with a TV if you feel the need for vegetating after a long day of biking and hiking around town. You can also visit with our friendly pet rabbit, Toro, who shares the laundry room.
Hey Badger fans, we can see Camp Randall Stadium from our backyard and we love hosting fellow fans during football season!
Epic visitors - During special events such as XGM and UGM, there is usually a shuttle you can use to commute to and from the Epic campus departing from the nearby HotelRed.
You have free access to the entire basement, which includes the bedroom, living room, bathroom, and laundry facilities. The living room and kitchen on the first floor is shared space but we'd prefer if you let us know if you are planning on using the kitchen so we can plan accordingly. You can also use our extra parking spot in the alley behind our home if you are arriving by car, but there's also usually street parking available.
Interaction with Guests
If you're feeling chatty, feel free to pop upstairs and socialize with us. We'd love to give you advice on which restaurants to try, which bike paths to take, how to ride the bus!
The Monroe St area is full of funky independent shops and trendy restaurants. We have several favorites within walking distance, so feel free to ask for recommendations! We also are located just a few blocks from beautiful Vilas Park, which borders Wingra lake and is home to the free Vilas Zoo.
We're close enough to walk to just about everything, but if you're feeling the need for speed, we're also on several bus routes. My favorite way to explore Madison is by bike. You can jump on the bike path across the street from our house and get just about anywhere. All that pedaling means no guilt when stopping for ice cream at Memorial Union! We can also loan you our bikes as long as you promise to keep 'em locked up when not in use. Other options include the bike rental station across the street where you can rent a bike for $10 a day.
Other Things to Note
The rooms next to the guest suite is also inhabited by our friendly pet bunny Toro and our cowardly snake Ivana. If you have issues with either of these two animals, let us know and we can arrange for them to be relocated somewhere else in the house during your stay!

Had a great stay. JJ and Anurag are very welcoming hosts, the space and bed are comfortable, and Toro is the friendliest rabbit I have ever met!
I had a wonderful time at JJ's! The pictures represent the room very well. It was a great cozy space with a great bed and private bathroom! It was a wonderful, comfortable, warm place to back to each evening. Great location on campus to Camp Randall. Would highly recommend!
Jj and her family were great hosts. They were more than accommodating, offering use of their house, not just the basement level quarters they have posted. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and well maintained, it was also very warm even though the outside temp was in the teens at night. They let us come and go as they please and their home is in prime location right by Camp Randall Stadium & Regent St. Overall, it was a great first experience for AirBnB.
Very hospitable. Having a parking spot was nice and were very willing to help with everything.
Jj's house was absolutely perfect. Bed was comfortable and space was clean. She and her family were respectful of our space and responsive to our questions. I would absolutely recommend Jj's house for any Madison event!
My husband and I both went to UW Madison for grad school and decided to stick around because we just can't find another city we love more than Madison. We now have a 2 year old son and love getting out into the Monroe St neighborhood to enjoy all of the shops, restaurants and local festivals. Come visit us to find out why we love Madison!
