About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

The 744 of space is exceptional, in our humble opinion. The area is large but cozy, clean and comfortable. You have the entire lower level apartment that has a living room and a bed room. A newly remodeled full bathroom, with a walk in shower, with two shower heads; as well as a bench just outside the shower and two hooks for towels to hang. There is also a refrigerator with bottled water and room for you to store any leftovers, or food of your own. We have a full sink, griddle, toaster oven, and toaster. We have a coffee pot equipped with coffee and cups, sugar and creme. We have dishware along with silverware.

You can close off the living room and bedroom for complete privacy. This room is large but cozy, clean, and comfortable with windows, cross-ventilation, room to sit and relax if you like, high end leather couch and matching leather chair and ottoman. A big screen TV. We also have free unlimited wifi.


We let the guest decide, if we are around, we enjoy meeting new people and chatting or if you prefer relaxing by yourself, you are most welcome. Please let us know if there are any questions you might have about the area or if there is any way we can make your stay more comfortable!

Our goal is to provide a restful, quiet, and clean place for someone to enjoy while they are in Madison. This is a wonderful, safe neighborhood built mainly in the 1950s; it is close to the University of Wisconsin campus, the hospitals, and 12 minutes to downtown by car or a bus. There is a great bike path nearby that can take you to campus, downtown or out into the green spaces surrounding Madison!

We would love to offer guests any information that they would like to have. We have some special restaurants that you may want to experience in our neighborhood. We also have some wonderful paths near the lake that are breath taking. We are abreast of all the activities going on in Madison and can help communicate those as well.

Lots of options when it comes to buses and bike paths!

We have parking for our guests in our driveway, a few steps to our house, tucked away from the road and in a well lit area.

Guest Access

We live on the first level. You will enter on the first level, at the side door, private entrance; immediately to your left; are the stairs that lead to your peaceful quarters.

We make sure you feel welcome from the moment you arrive.

The Neighborhood

We are nestled in a wooded neighborhood, that has been around for approx. 75 years. The trees are beautiful and plentiful. In addition to that, you are two blocks from the lake. There are many spots that you can walk out to from our home and be on the Lakeshore. There is a beach approximately 5 blocks away. There is a boat launch approximately 5 blocks away. It is low traffic and we feel as though we live on a culdesac. Our back yard is secluded by trees and very beautiful. You won't find a home with the peaceful environment we offer in the hustle bustle of other parts of Madison.

Getting Around

We live approximately 4 miles from the UW Madison Campus. There is bus transportation. We also live two blocks from the Lake and it is a beautiful area. You can use your own vehicle for transportation, a bicycle (which is very popular) and or the bus or Uber or a Taxi. We have city maps to help you navigate through Madison.

Other Things to Note

We have parking for our guests in our driveway, tucked away from the road and in a well lit area very close to our house. We also have tour books on Madison. We live on the bus line and it is easily accessible. We are closely located to the UW Madison campus as well as the Convention Center and the Overture Center. Interested in getting in your workout before you head out for the day? We have a treadmill that you are welcome to use; and you can view the big screen TV as you run or walk. We also have single dumb bells as well as an exercise ball. After your workout we have a remodeled, walk in shower with two shower heads.

You can prepare yourself breakfast on the hot griddle or use the toaster oven or toaster. We have coffee as well. We also check in with you, before you arrive, to see if there are any special beverages that you may prefer. We are humbled to serve any guest that stay in our home, serving you, the guest, is our main priority. We have several reviews on another website. We look forward to your visit!.

comfortable, private, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Positioned between University Street and the lake shore, this basement apartment has everything you might want - easy access by car or bus into downtown Madison or a delightful 2 hour walk along the shore of Lake Mendota and through a forested park to the university campus. Comfortable bed, excellent walk-in shower, fine kitchen facilities. I spent 4 pleasant nights there and hope to return.
