My home is located in the charming neighborhood of Bayview, just 5 minutes from downtown Milwaukee, 8 minutes from the airport, 2 blocks from Humboldt Park, walking distance to many awesome local shops and eateries, and 1 block from Target for all those little things we always forget to pack. In addition I am located one block off Howell Avenue for easy access to the Milwaukee County Transit's "Green Line" which is the express line to downtown, running about every 15 minutes it's a great way to get around to all of Milwaukee's star attractions. I have 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom available on the upper level of my home. The bedroom has a queen size bed. There is also an open living area to relax in.
There is not a separate entrance to the upper level however the staircase is a straight shot from the front door and the entire upper floor is free for booking as I only reside on the first floor, so privacy is a real perk. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen as they desire to prepare or store food during their stay, I only ask that guests bring their own food and clean up after themselves. Additionally I am pleased to be able to accommodate guests' needs and comfort by providing wireless internet access and access to my washer and dryer depending on the length of their stay and necessity. I am more than happy to help cooperative guests with getting to, from, and around our city. Feel free to ask for help with directions, bus schedules and routes, and for recommendations for great places to eat, shop, or for local entertainment during your stay since I love sharing my community with visitors. Off street parking is regularly available in front of my home and I would be happy to assist guests with over night parking permissions and alternate street parking for 3 days. I have a garage spot for longer stays. As a host I am pretty accommodating and can be flexible in meeting your needs so please feel free to contact me with any additional inquiries regarding this listing and my neighborhood. Check it out and I hope to see you soon!
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as the guests prefer.
The people, parks, bars, restaurants, theatres, among others.
Bus stop near my house that goes from the airport through downtown.
My home is yours during your stay with the common understanding that you are guests and I would appreciate that my space and belongings would be treated as you would treat your own. Guests are to refrain from using or accessing areas not designated for their use as agreed upon in my listing as well as my verbal and written communications. Guests should feel free to use my kitchen as long as they provide their own food and kindly clean up after themselves. For your own safety and security as well as mine I also ask guests to carefully follow all instructions regarding access to our home, making sure doors are closed and locked when they are out. We would ask that guests conduct themselves accordingly and behave in a manner that is mutually respectful of my shared living arrangement, my only specific rule would be that our home is a smoke/drug free environment (you are more than welcome to smoke outside). Lastly for your own sake we ask that you follow our parking guide lines to avoid ticketing during your stay.
Mike was a fantastic host. Not only were the accommodations great, but he was also super friendly and helpful in pointing out places to go around Bayview.
Mike was very easy to work with and his responses to my questions/e-mails were very timely. The room is just perfect for one or two people to share for a few days. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and I felt comfortable staying in the house and the neighborhood. The bathroom is not exactly conducive for taller people. The shower and the sink area both have quite a low ceiling. However, who spends a lot of time in the bathroom? I used the bus system while there; pick up is only a few blocks away (Mike also helped me with these directions) and when I used a taxi service the driver was at the house in less than 5 minutes each time. If/when I ever go back to Summerfest I would stay at this place again.
Great place, Great neighbourhood, Great host! Bayview is one of the Best parts of Millwaukee, and we can't wait to come back and stay with Mike again!
Mike was friendly and well prepared for guests. The space was clean, charming and private. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. We especially loved the neighborhood: a short walk to bars, a coffee shop and restaurants. Thanks for a great experience.
My son and I enjoyed our two-day stay while spending time in Milwaukee. The bed was comfortable and the room/bathroom were clean. Convenient location, coming and going was easy, nice neighborhood. Thanks!
Mike has a nice house in a convenient location in Milwaukee and I enjoyed staying there. He recommended places to take my teenage son while visiting the area, Thank you for a great stay.
We had an amazing stay at Mike's place. We stayed two nights there and spent the entire first evening cooking crepes and talking about everything. He is very kind, open minded, flexible for the check in and check out. His house is really beautiful and having your own private floor is great. The bedroom and bathroom are really beautiful and very clean. And groceries are walking distance from the house. We really loved our stay there and highly recommend it. Thanks for everything Mike it was a real pleasure to meet you. Hope to see you soon
