Beautiful, cozy home. Comfy bed. Helpful and flexible hosts. Yummy breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.
Mike and Laurie's place was so very charming, it was a privilege to stay there. Although we only crossed paths at the end of our stay we could tell they were lovely caring hosts, and the room demonstrated that. I highly recommend their place to anyone travelling to beautiful Milwaukee.
Great house and room - plenty of space and lovely decor. Very easy to get to from Airport and then around town, there's a really good bus service. The Bayview area has some lovely shops and restaurants within walking distance.
Only met Mike but he was very friendly and helpful (and understanding when I broke the shower!). Getting breakfast was an unexpected and delicious surprise - only one of the little extras like toiletries, guide books, DVD's..... Couldn't have asked for more for my first Air BnB experience.
Awesome place, beautiful house in a quite neighborhood. The cats are great too. I would stay with them anytime
Thanks Mike, Laurie, and super friendly kitties! We had a great stay. The house is in a nice neighborhood, and for those of you traveling by car, it's very close to 94 -- uber convenient! We appreciated the note and the great communication, and would stay again. Thanks so much!
Mike and Laurie have a beautiful home and were fantastic, thoughtful hosts. Everything from the comfortable bed to the notes they left to share information (and Summerfest tickets!) was perfect. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
Mike and Laurie are wonderful hosts! Their house is beautiful and very comfortable, and is in a great location for exploring Milwaukee, especially the Bayview neighborhood. They provide all amenities, and although I rarely saw them due to conflicting schedules, always came home to a welcoming note and a nice treat (like fresh strawberries from their garden). Definitely recommend!
We love to travel and meet new people. In our daily lives we always try to remember the places we have been to and bring back a little piece of our travels to our home. We strive to give back to local communities, independent owners and support hostels and Airbnb. We have always wanted to start a hostel and being hosts through Airbnb allows us to fulfill our dream of creating a warm and friendly environment for guests coming to Milwaukee. We are avid bicycle riders, love food, trying out new restaurants around town, art, dancing, boat trips and swimming in the lake; we are also huge animal lovers and have a diverse knowledge of interesting things to do in Milwaukee. In our own city we try to create a feeling of being on vacation each time we go out and challenge ourselves with new experiences. We hope you have a fun and exciting time in Milwaukee and see all it has to offer!
