Overview

About the property

2 [Queen] Bedrooms, 2 Full Bath; Maxiumum of 5 Adults

THIS IS YOUR VIEW! Others claim location and amenities but a discerning guest will appreciate that this property was prepared to make your stay special.

Enjoy spectacular views of Lake Michigan and Downtown from EVERY room in a safe & relatively quiet neighborhood. Sunshine from the South & East fill this well-appointed, corner unit. A central location within walking distance of all that is special about Milwaukee. FREE secure, underground parking and two full bathrooms make your stay convenient.

Regular Weekly Business Traveler to MKE? Contact me for special pricing.

The Space

My belongings are elsewhere. It is one of very few Milwaukee rentals which is truly all yours once you arrive. If you prefer the owner-lived-in experience, this may not the right "stay" for you.

Given the number of car “break-ins” occurring in the city, my property is one of the few which offers a coveted secure, assigned, underground parking space. And if a second parking spot is needed, I can assist with that also.

There are lovely city and lake views to be enjoyed. And a balcony to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails.

Furnishings are new and stylish with a touch of whimsy. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked should you decide to dine in.

The Neighborhood

The location is perfectly central for those who enjoy walking to restaurants and city sites. You will be surprised by the relatively quiet location that is just footsteps from all that makes the Downtown Milwaukee area special.

Warmer weather offers music-filled parks farmer’s markets, bike trails, river kayaking, trolleys, Lake Michigan sailing and beach volleyball. And our famous street and ethnic festivals; Jazz in the Park, Bastille Days, Irish Fest, Italian Fest, German Fest, and the World's Largest Music Festival – Summerfest. ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.

In cooler weather, take in the Calatrava Art Museum, Bradly Center sports, or well-know performances of symphony, dance, theater, and opera at the Historic Pabst, Turner Hall, Riverside, Milwaukee Repertory, and Marcus Center. ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.

How convenient...There is a grocery and liquor store just a block away.

Walking Distance to Venues:

Pabst Theater .5m

BMO Harris Bradley Center (Bucks, concerts, entertainment) .7m

Milwaukee Art Museum (on Lake Michigan) .7m

Henry Maier Festival Park (Summerfest Grounds) - .9m

Riverside Theater - .8m

Wisconsin [Convention] Center .9m

UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena .7m

Milwaukee Public Market [Historic Third Ward] .9m

Miller Park (i.e. Brewers) and Harley Davidson are just a 10 minute drive.

Interested in a stay?

I have been fortunate to have many wonderful guests over many years. They receive great accommodations for their Milwaukee visits and I receive caring guests.

Please provide full names of potential adult guests, where you reside, and the reason for your visit when making an inquiry. This allows me to get to know you a bit. Much appreciated!

Interaction with Guests

I or my partner greet all guests to ensure you are comfortably settled, safely parked, connected to the wifi, and know how to operate the Smart TV. Many folks tell me how rare and helpful it is to have such an attentive host. If you prefer a self-check in, that is fine.

I love Milwaukee and I want you to also. I dine out often and can direct you to restaurants truly deserving of your patronage. And please enjoy a free visit to our iconic Museum of Art on the Lakefront. I also have access to to amazing BUCK's center court seats and as an avid subscriber to the theater, symphony, ballet, and opera, I can recommend and sometimes obtain discounted tickets.

NBA fan? Ask about access to amazing center-court CLUB seats for two.

About Gail

A gal from the Midwest who enjoys traveling and meeting new folks. Finding this a great venue to feed those passions. Love the theater, art, hiking, canoeing, cooking and eating out! Never smoke and although I understand pets are great family members, I don't have any. Oh yes... I'm a bit of a clean-freak.

Getting to know my guests is the the best part of hosting. Sometimes by the time they arrive, I already feel we are friends. Occasionally we even have coffee or enjoy a meal together. When I started my hosting journey, I didn't realize how enjoyable it would be to help provide others a wonderful stay in my city. I love Milwaukee and want my guests to also. It is a charming big-little city with much to offer. And I want the space I provide them to be part of what makes their stay special.

I have a number of properties; all in a very enjoyable and walkable area of downtown Milwaukee. If I cannot accommodate a guest's needs, I even help them find alternatives. So don't be shy and ask!

Great Views! Comfortable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Gail’s condo. The unit was very comfortable and clean and has amazing views of the city and also the lake. Gail was extremely accommodating and welcoming. Communication was easy and we appreciated her help and recommendations. We will absolutely be back. Highly recommend staying at this safe, secure property in a great part of town!

Short, but satisfying

  • 5 of 5

Great place I wish I knew about sooner. My daughter graduated from Marquette and I brought my family of 4. What a great place. Well located 3 blocks from lake, walking distance to Art museum, little longer walk to river, close to Bradley center and many theaters. We were so fortunate to have this place to come back simce time was tight. Instead of trying to get a restaurant we were able to come back and eat with plenty of room. The view of the lake is a little less since one of the buildings added a floor, but one bedroom has a great panoramic. Gail is more than accommodating and , if we had more time would have enjoyed her insights into the city. Parking off the street is great help in a neighborhood that looks like it is being updated, grocery store next block. We will miss Milwaukee and this little gem.

Beautiful condo- and amazing city to visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our Milwaukee getaway was everything we expected and more. The condo is beautiful, comfortable, and the views are terrific. Also, the location was absolutely perfect- a nice quiet, tree lined street, but within walking distance or a really quick Uber trip to so many things to do and see, and an almost endless list of great restaurants. Gail was wonderful to work with, and had a lot of great suggestions of things to enjoy in this beautiful- and super friendly- city! We usually try a different city every year, but we are already talking about returning here next year to see some of the things we missed this time around, and are hoping to stay at this condo again. Nothing but good things to say about the whole experience. Thanks, Gail!
