The apartment has a nice layout and was in a handy location for us. Access was easy and Mariel was always available via text and email. There were a few items that were missing that would have made our stay better. Besides 2 bath towels, there were no hand towels, washcloths or kitchen towels. There was a duvet cover on the bed, but no blanket. There also were NO wastebaskets anywhere in the apartment. The place was clean and the sliding doors brought in fresh air and light. In general it was a very good stay. Thanks Mariel!
We enjoyed a very quiet weekend - Mariel's place was very clean and was perfect for our needs. She was very responsive and gracious, even allowing us to bring our dog and keep her crated. It was not right downtown but still very easy to get to and we preferred it that way. Thanks Mariel!
The apartment was clean, and fine for our purposes. It is not the most ideal location in Madison, but it works. The apartment building itself leaves something to be desired when you walk in, but the apartment was fine. Mariel was easy to connect with, helpful with details. There is no t.v or wifi, which is something many people may want to know!
Mariel’s loft was the perfect place for my one-night stay in Madison, cozy, quaint, clean, and very conveniently located, just a few minutes drive from downtown and the campus. For a longer stay, it's set up with every convenience including a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. There is a small patio on the ground level and a balcony on the bedroom level. The arboretum across the road was a huge plus for me. Walking along the lovely trail by the lake was a serene and peaceful way to start the day. Mariel was always very prompt and thoughtful with her responses. I recommend her loft without hesitation.
Great little apt in a great location. It was myself and my 2 daughters and it worked perfectly for us. Security locked building which was really nice. Mariel was very responsive when I had questions. I would definitely stay here again!!!
Very uncomfortable stay. The apartment itself is nicely furnished and very cute upon first glance. However, it was not accommodating at all. My family and I arrived late in the evening and were greeted by a freezing space. What homeowner would turn heat completely off during a cold spell with negative temps is beyond me. Either way, it was obvious that the heat had been off for days and it took over a day and a half, with heat on full blast, to warm the place up. That was a COLD first night! The bed itself only had a thin comforter, not to mention that the sheets were DIRTY! Literally, there was body hair and dirt throughout the bed. I ended up removing and washing the sheets myself before bed - which was a huge pain. We have a baby and could not let her roam free because the carpets were disgusting and covered in dirt/crumbs/who-knows-what. There was no trash can in the bathroom. No wash cloths or enough towels (also looked dirty and had hair on them). The fire detector batteries had been removed; not reasurring considering the outdated heating system. Old, molding food in the fridge. Silverware looked dirty. NO WI-FI, Internet, or TV! No alarm clock - but no need - there is a pack of wolves living in the apartment above that will wake you up early am. In a search for the vacuum, I only found closets full of disheveled crap. Luckily, I did find a warm sleeping bag to use on the first night to spread over the bed to keep the frost out. Definitely not worth the amount charged per night. Get it together Mariel! YUCK.
Communication with Mariel was great! Very easy to check-in. Home was cozy and clean. Thanks for the wonderful stay in Madison!
Our stay in Mariel's loft was great. It was, as advertised, cozy and we really enjoyed using the record player that was set out in the living room area. The location was very convenient; we saw a movie, ate dinner downtown, and drove through a Christmas light display in a nearby park. Overall a great experience!
Although we couldn't meet Mariel and her husband during their stay, we highly recommend them as guests - they are easy to communicate with, they kept us posted all through and left the place tidy and clean. If only we could've met them! Hope we do, when they decide to come to Appleton next!
Mariel is a tremendous guest - left the unit in perfect condition and even wrote a thank you note, which was totally unnecessary but very much appreciated. Highly recommended!
Mariel was a wonderful guest she was easy to communicate with and left the house very clean I would highly recommend her to future hosts!!!
Mariel was cool. We all creepily scoped her out on her blog before she arrived. I can vouch for the fact that she looks the same in person as she does on the internet.
