About the property

1 Queen bed, 1 full bath, 3 adult max

Thank you for taking a peek at my listing as I know you have numerous options. Others claim location and amenities but a discerning guest will appreciate that this property was prepared with only your needs in mind.

A perfectly central location, pristine accommodations, and an attentive host make this listing a Milwaukee BEST! Plus secure, assigned, underground parking.

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 an owner-lived-in experience, this may not the right "stay" for you.

The building is lovely - a newly renovated piece of Milwaukee history showcases modern with tradition. Furnishings are new, stylish, with a touch of whimsy. And the kitchen is thoughtfully stocked should you decide to dine in.

Want to work out or need just a little more space? You also have access to a community fitness center and room.

Having a special event? There is a community space that can be rented in the building. Sorry but parties are not allowed in the apartment.

INTERACTIONS 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.

If this space is not available for your dates I have another property...please inquire.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: The location is perfectly central for those who enjoy walking to restaurants and city sites. You are steps from the 3 mile Milwaukee River Walk which leads you uptown to East Town and Brady Street or south to the Third Ward.

DOG FRIENDLY: The entire building is pet friendly and we are dog-friendly. I hope you don’t mind a pet fee. We just take a lot of extra time to clean after occasional pet stays for those who don’t have extended family. There is a large, nearby dog-friendly park on the river; a 2 block walk. There is a small patch of green space across the street but none immediately outside the building.

RATE TIPS: Consult the rate page to see detailed rates which vary by season, events and length of stay. Weekly re-occurring business renters please inquire for special pricing.

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... just ask!

Comfortable and beautiful loft within walking distance to Lake Michigan.

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! Extremely clean, comfortable bed, large bathroom, fully stocked kitchen and laundry room. They provided everything you would get at a hotel like shampoo, soap, hand lotion, towels, etc. Plus lots of important extras like an umbrella, lawn chairs, a flashlight in the night stand and a first aid kit in the bathroom.

The loft is in a quiet building with polite and friendly tenants. There is a large variety of restaurants and attractions within walking distance.

It’s a 5 star loft!!

Owner's Response: Your so sweet to mention all the little things provided that helped make your stay so special. You were too funny when I checked in with you to see if all was well and you could not believe there was a flashlight in your nightstand! I do try to imagine what will be needed in most circumstances. Thanks for taking the time to let me and potential guests know that it is often the little things that make the difference!

One of the best we have rented through VRBO! Unbelievable hosts (Gail & Kent)

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful, exactly as pictured but way nicer. Great location, to everything Milwaukee has to offer. Gail and Kent were wonderful and went above and beyond to make us feel very welcome and comfortable. We have rented through VRBO many times and this one certainly ranks in our top ones. We plan to return asap.

Owner's Response: Yeah! My goal of being one of the best hosts on HomeAway/VRBO was achieved. So nice of you to say so Debbie. And how kind of you to take the time for this review given that you are dealing with Hurricane/Storm Florence in your backyard! Stay safe and hope to see you and Tony soon.

Would definitely recommend this condo, and would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

This MKE Loft condo is very clean, quiet, comfortable, accessible, and smartly appointed. Lots of natural light in the day, and very dark and quiet in the nighttime. Feels much larger than square feet might suggest. This location was ideal for two people and our doggy, with pet-walking locations very near. We enjoyed our stay, and even entertained some guests while there. We would definitely consider staying here again, and recommend it enthusiastically.

And Gail went above and beyond in greeting us personally, and introducing us to the condo, parking, and environs. Thank you, Gail.

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure to meet you and introduce to the property and Milwaukee. Always fun to meet nice folks. And yes, it does feel bigger than the square feet suggest - so happy you mentioned that! And glad Lizzy (your dog) and your felt there were good pet-walking locations near by. I always worry about pets being comfortable in the midst of downtown Milwaukee cement!

Owner's Response: I assume you managed to get some work done while enjoying the downtown area. So glad you used the free pass to the Milwaukee Art Museum and enjoyed the Georgia O'Keefe gallery. Loved meeting you; will have to have breakfast next time. Next year? Irishfest?

fantastic place right downtown

  • 5 of 5

We can only join in the chorus of praise for both Gail and her place and recommend it without any reservation. It is exceptional! It is spotless, furnished beautifully and includes not only all the basics but also excellent extras like local coffee, a free pass to the Milwaukee Art Museum, bottled water, beach chairs, to name a few. The building has been wonderfully renovated; the location allows you to walk all over downtown Milwaukee, see the main sights as well as get to great places to dine. And Gail knows what restaurants to go to -- every one of her recommendations was terrific. She was in every way helpful and pleasant. And the parking spot under the building was the cherry on top. An added delight were the pieces of art, especially the photos in the bathroom.

So we thank you, Gail, for a perfect stay. You can be certain that we will seek you out next time we visit Milwaukee.
