Overview

About the property

1 bedroom waterfront apartment within walking distance to the best of Madison.

This one bedroom retreat is the first floor of our home and is located right on lake Monona. It has recently been remodeled and has 9 foot ceilings and huge windows overlooking the lake. The apartment is equipped with a large flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet. There is a queen bed with luxury sheets as well as a futon sleeper sofa for that will comfortably sleep 2 children. The kitchen is equipped with a 2 burner stove, microwave, mini fridge and sink.

We have NFL Sunday ticket! Watch any and all professional football games from the comfort of our apartment. This is also a great location to stay for Badger football, basketball and hockey games. Welcome Wisconsin Alumni and Go Badgers!

Although the apartment itself is designed to be a relaxing retreat, there is so much to do out doors you might not spend much time inside. Have coffee on the dock in the morning. Then spend the day on the lake fishing. Alternatively, spend the afternoon biking or running around the lake on the bike path, which you can pick up just a block from the house. Not the outdoorsy type? Don't worry, there are plenty of downtown activities within walking distance. The Capital is just a 10 minute walk, as are all the best restaurants, cafes and nightlife that Madison has to offer. The UW campus is about a mile and half and can easily be biked, walked or catch a bus across the street from the apartment. This downtown lakefront location really has the best of both worlds.

Our facility has been inspected and licensed by the State of Wisconsin and City of Madison.

This apartment is a non-smoking facility.

About Leah Zalapa

My husband is an avid fisherman and has always dreamed of living on the lake. When this property became available, it was just what we had been looking for - it is our cabin/lake house right in the heart of town. As we love to entertain, it seemed like a perfect fit for us to open our home via VRBO.

Leah Zalapa purchased this apartment in 2013

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so nice & cozy. We had two adults & two kids here, the kids caught (and released!) fireflies at night while the sun set then headed to bed so we could relax by the side of the lake. The hosts were helpful, the place was clean. There was easy access to coffee at Ground Zero, groceries, music & entertainment. Thanks for a good stay!

Clean, cozy, updated, gorgeous views

This was a great spot! Loved walking to the beach and shops along Willy St. We had some family from Madison over for a cookout and everyone kept commenting on what a great find this place was. We hope to be back!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed In Madison for a wedding over the weekend at the Capital building nearby. This property was able to accommodate my wife and I, my sister in-law and our two kids (2 and under). Great neighborhood and a beautiful view of the lake from the living room and back patio. We will definitely consider this location again the next time we come to Madison!

Perfect way to experience Madison

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights in this place. It was perfect. For two people you won't be wanting for more space. In fact we would be comfortable returning with our two boys some time.

Leah and Juan are great hosts - responsive to the occasional text message question, but otherwise left us in peace to enjoy our stay.

Madison, we have learned, is best seen on a bike. The B-Cycle station couldn't be any closer... just half a block away. We used the bikes for short trips everyday.

Not sure what else to say. It was just what we wanted. Perfect location, beautiful view of Monona, satellite TV, comfy furniture. Thanks a million.
