This is a comfortable and affordable room for those that are travelling, need a place to stay, or for someone who just wants to get out of their house to stay somewhere new for a change! This room is located on Madison's West side a few minutes from the beautiful Middleton, many unique restaurants, and West Towne Mall. The room has it's own secure lock and you are free to help yourself to the coffee maker in the morning for a great start to your day! There is ever a computer desk to use as a workstation, should the need strike you. You are also welcome to enjoy the common areas, which adds a beautiful balcony, dining table, and couch, with TV and VCR/DVD players available for use.
The building has a really great location, with Woodman's food market within walking distance, 12/18 beltline Hwy right down the road, and Madison's famous West Town mall about 2 miles away (with stores such as JC Penny's, Boston Store, Sears, Dick's Sporting Goods and many more)! There is also the beautiful Elver park a block away, with Frisbee golf course and relaxing nature paths for the summer, and ski trails and a skating rink with skate rentals available in the winter! The wooded view from the room windows is beautiful all year round.
One of the key aspects that make this room the place to book is the easy access to the Madison "Beltline", that includes highways (phone number hidden) (depending which part you are on), which offers easy access to just about anywhere you'd want to visit in Madison! Directions to the place are also pretty straightforward when coming into town from Interstate highway 90.

-Firm Queen-sized mattress use
-Plenty of closet space
-iPhone charger (upon request)
-Pull up bar
-Nintendo gaming system with Super Mario 3 and Duck Hunt (obviously the best part!)
-Shower and washroom
-Washer and dryer
-Nearby bus stop and transfer point
-20 minutes from downtown Madison
My guests are welcome to make themselves at home! I've got wireless internet, old school video games, an apple TV with Netflix, even a computer monitor set up in the bedroom for use. The bathroom and shower is a given, and I provide towels and soap for every guest.
I've also got an in-unit top and bottom front-loading washing machine for use during your stay.
The kitchen is fair game, and I've got quite a collection of spices to choose from. I usually have breakfast foods in the fridge that my guests are welcome to as well.
Interaction with Guests
I love to meet new people and hearing their stories! However, realistically, I'm usually pretty busy with work and school. Sometimes I may not meet my guests at all, as I have a set of keys I can lock outside. If the timing works out, and a guest is interested in talking, or wondering about things to do in town, or needs directions, I'm always available via telephone or text if I can't make it to the condo to chat.
The Elver Park neighborhood is located pretty convieniently a couple of miles from the main highway, and easy walking distance to Elver Park. In the winter, the park has ski trails, an ice rink, and a huge sledding hill. In the summer, it has great wooded paths to wander, a playground, a shelter, and a disc golf course. The neighborhood is very diverse, and there are many friendly neighbors around with kids ranging 3-14 years old. There's also a private playground on the complex.
I have a list that I provide to my guests with a couple taxi companies and their rates to a couple common places (the airport, the capitol, etc). I also have listed the city bus transport times and approximate bus numbers, if a guest is traveling on foot.
Other Things to Note
My place is located on the third floor, so if you'll need any help carrying luggage upstairs, let me know when you book and I'm more than happy to help!
I'm also big into beginner running, so if you're booking a longer stay, or even just like to jog, I'm always happy to invite someone along with me on one of my routes.
-Smoking is not allowed inside of the unit, but you can smoke on the balcony so long as you don't toss your butts over the railing.
-Please make sure the oven and stove are off after use.
-Please keep the noise level down after 10pm.
-Shoes should be kept inside the unit, not in the hallway
We really enjoyed staying at Jesse place. It was so relaxing hangout with the fish after a long day of business. His hospitaly was awesome. We able to meet this gentleman (Jesse) and his friend over dinner. He was very understanding and accommodating to our travel itinerary. Great communication and instructions with details about the area, his place and restaurants. Thanks again Jesse.
Jesse is a wonderful host with fantastic communication before and after arrival - He was accommodating & flexible on a weekend that included flight delays & being on other people's schedules. It was easy to pick up my keys and the apartment was warm & welcoming. I felt at home, that I could come & go as I pleased. Jesse also provided extra details about the area including public transport. THANKS JESSE!!
Jesse was so very helpful, he left us his keys in an easy to find place, which was helpful as we got in late after a show. The apartment was very clean. He left us beer/breakfast supplies in his kitchen as well as blankets/towels/soap. He also had amazing aquariums! We felt safe and well cared for. Id recommend staying here!
I stayed 3 nights with Jesse in late February 2014. I have stayed in many places through Airbnb and other similar websites and Jesse’s apartment has been my favourite so far. Jesse is incredibly accomodating and went out of his way to make my trip go smoothly. Thanks Jesse!
Jesse was a great host, making sure he met me to let me into the place and showing me how things worked. The apartment not only has a very nice view into the woods, but has a fantastic/huge fish tank that provides continual entertainment. The sleeping accommodations were fine in a large bedroom. Jesse spent his time elsewhere, so I essentially had the place to myself. I highly recommend Jesse's place for a stay in the Madison area. Note that the location is a ways from downtown Madison, but it is a very reasonable and attractive place for a short or longer stay in the Madison/Middleton area.
Nice stay during 3 weeks at Jessie's condo with our girls twins. It was calm, relaxing and close to shops and services.
Thanks to your welcome !
We will be glad to be your guests when we return in Madison !
It's my second time at Jesse's apartment, booking the same place again (i think that's enough for the new review) LOL.
