The SpaceMy apartment is on a very quiet, private street, while being just a block from the main street and less than a 10 minute walk to the Capitol Square. I have a lovely, modern couch that opens up into a full-sized bed, so I can comfortably accommodate two people. I painted accent walls in each room and have both my own artwork and friends' artwork on display throughout the apartment. The kitchen and dining room are spacious and there is a nice back yard area with a picnic table behind the apartment. Guest AccessThere is coin-operated laundry in the building and room for bike storage. Parking space is not included, but there is ample street parking and parking garages nearby for a low rate. The apartment is fully handicap-accessible, so there is carpet covering the walls for wheelchairs, a ramp up to the apartment entrance, and no ledge to enter the shower. The one issue this creates is water can pool on the shower floor and come out from under the shower curtain, which will make the bathroom floor slippery. I provide a towel to put down outside the shower for this reason. Interaction with GuestsI interact pretty often with guests and enjoy hosting. I'm always eager to have a new workout buddy, should you want to go for a run or train in the back yard. I also usually cook a few times a week and will likely invite you to walk to the farmers' market on Saturday mornings. :) The NeighborhoodI love that I'm within walking distance of so many great things. I almost never have to use my car. The farthest walk is 20 minutes, but otherwise in 5 to 15 minutes I can be at countless coffee shops, restaurants, bars, parks, museums, the Monona Terrace, the *beautiful* Central Library, State Street local shopping, bike paths, and so on. I live right on the isthmus and in 5 minutes can walk to either of the two lakes, Mendota and Monona. Driving, I'm still within 15 minutes of most things, including a fantastic rock climbing gym! In the summer, Wisconsin comes alive, and so many events congregate around the Capitol Square, including the Dane County Farmers Market, Concert on the Square, and Art Fair on the Square. Getting AroundI'm on the Bus Line to the Kohl Center and Camp Randall Stadium. There is no private parking for my apartment, but since I am on a neighborhood street there is ample street parking. There are also a few parking garages just a couple blocks away. Other Things to NotePets: I have a cat named Charlemagne who's a polite and amiable housemate. Restaurant Recommendations: Brunch - DLux. Breakfast potatoes. Unlimited bloody (website hidden) Food - The Old Fashioned. Definitely get deep fried cheese curds with paprika sauce. The best cheese curds you'll ever taste. Best Coffee Shop - Barriques on West Wash. Coffee. Wine. Big tables. Lots of good vibes. Exercise: Boulders Climbing Gym. A favorite. The Studio, on Lake Monona. They offer Yoga Barre, TRX classes, Meditation, and Flow, and have both hot and normal temp rooms with huge, uplifting windows and lots of natural light. Bike paths galore.

The SpaceRecently finished third floor walk-up attic of a Colonial house. Very private space with lots of room to spread out (about 500 sq ft). Accommodates up to four people. Shared bath. Wi-fi. Plenty of grounded outlets. Nice space to work, relax, or just crash. Furnished with a comfortable double bed, double futon mattress/couch, shelves, and desk. The floors are old, rustic wood, so you want to wear slippers or something on your feet. Towels and bed linens provided. Guest AccessThere is one shower shared among the three people who live in the house plus AirBnB guests. Guests typically do not use kitchen, living room, or other common spaces, besides the upstairs bathroom. But there is ample room for hanging out in the large attic guest room, with the futon couch, and desk. Honestly, the room is our favorite in the house! Interaction with GuestsKathryn will be happy to chat and answer any of your questions. The NeighborhoodI love the Vilas neighborhood because it's centrally located around the corner from shops and restaurants, and near downtown, yet it's quiet, full of old, beautiful homes, and very close to parks, a beautiful lake, and the university Arboretum. Getting Around*Parking is not a problem. *0.5 miles to campus. 1.7 miles to the Capitol. *A quick walk from Vilas Park, Lake Wingra, the Arboretum, and Monroe St. shops. *Quite near the central bike path. 12 minute bike ride to the Capitol. *There is a bus stop nearby, and bike paths for biking or walking to downtown. *From the airport, I would take a taxi/Lyft/Uber; public transit is possible, but not direct. Other Things to Note*There is no AC in the attic. There are fans in both windows creating a cross breeze in the summer, and a small heater for the winter. *The attic has low and sloped ceilings, so it might not be the best for tall people, but a 6'6" man stayed here for a month and loved it. *The attic stairs are steep.

The SpaceWe love hosting and are in our fourth year. Our house is pretty, cozy, bright and clean. We're on the desirable near-west side in quiet College Park, at the foot of historic University Heights, right on the bus line to downtown (about 7 mins.). Built in 1936, we have three bedrooms (and a sofa bed) and two bathrooms (basement bathroom has utility sink, to be upgraded in 2016). In all, we can accommodate six (seven in a pinch). Our house is beautifully decorated with art and antiques and maintained with lots of attention to detail. The three bedrooms consist of one new California king bed; one extra-long twin in the office (new mattress); and one new full bed in the small third bedroom (all with down comforters in the winter). A full-sized sofa sleeper (with an optional feather-bed to make it comfier) in the living room can sleep two. You may reserve our house for weekends and sometimes longer stays, we'll try to accommodate you! Please check our single-room listing if its only one of you who needs a room. It is available for a nightly rate of up to $79 most any time. If that's the case, we'll set you up and leave you alone! In the house, you'll find a great wi-fi connection; a flat-screen T.V. in the kitchen and master bedroom (plus Roku and VHS/DVD player--no cable); iron/ironing board and hair dryer. There is a stereo with iPod hook up in the living room (no T.V. there, for peace and quiet). Kids, we have toys and books for you! We live one block away from Stevens Park, a recently rebuilt neighborhood playground with basketball hoops. Madison is an inclusive and environmentally sensitive city. We welcome all guests and we like to recycle, compost, and use only use dye- and synthetic-free fragrances. We're a busy family of three who love art, music, travel, and locally sourced food and would be glad to help you find what you're looking for while staying in Madison. Footnote: the view from the (website hidden) map from the street is not Kendall Ave. Also, Madison Airbnb hosts are now required to pay sales and lodging tax (included) and we are in compliance with the State Health Department's laws. Guest AccessEnjoy the entire house. The screened-in porch and patio are great for warm summer evening meals. The kitchen has everything within reach. Your organic breakfast will include fresh fruit, English muffins or granola, breakfast beverages, and French-press coffee or tea. If you'd like to use the garage, feel free, and laundry is in the basement. Since this is our primary residence when you're not here, please use the empty drawers or luggage and clothes racks provided outside of our closets (mirrors inside closet doors). Interaction with GuestsWe will definitely connect through Airbnb/email to confirm plans. If you are new to Airbnb a connection over email or the phone is nice. We'd like to know of any special requests to make your stay terrific! When you rent the entire house, we will not be there although we may meet at check in if it works for all of us. We will help you with your itinerary or restaurant recommendations. You may even want to cook while you're here (we're very close to Whole Foods and other grocery stores). The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is tree-lined and excellent for strolling. It's quiet but near the UW hospital and campus. Madison is also a great place for foodies! Visit one of three near-by farmer's markets on a Saturday morning for amazing cinnamon rolls, fresh goat cheeses and hickory nuts. If you like to run or walk, go to picnic point on Lake Mendota or through the beautiful UW Arboretum's gardens or wooded trails. Frank Lloyd Wright's Unitarian Meeting House is within walking distance for architectural history buffs. Of course, you can always catch some kind of Badger game, too! Getting AroundWe are very close to the UW-Madison hospital (12 minute walk), and a short bike ride, bus ride ($2.00) or 30 minute walk to the heart of campus (through a pretty neighborhood). 20 minute walk to Camp Randall to see a UW-Madison football game. We are two short blocks from a major bus route (University Ave.), which can take you to the Kohl Center, the Capitol Square (for the Monona Terrace or Ironman), shopping at Hilldale or at boutiques along Monroe Street or just about anywhere else you want to go. We also live on a designated bike route, Kendall Avenue. Bike to campus or bike paths that take you to the beautiful city trail. You can park in our garage (one car) or on the street. Street (Farley & Kendall) parking is limited to 2 hours on weekdays. All-day free parking on weekdays is a 1/2 mile west on Bluff Street (Kendall turns into Bluff).

The SpaceAn entire house with a yard all to yourself! Very clean and close to downtown. An old Sears Roebuck house that has been remodeled and updated. . I will be here to great you, but other than that, the house is yours to relax in. However, I will be in town and no further than a text or phone call away.

Close bus stops, plenty of cabs and easy access to the bike paths make this location perfectly convenient. I do own a dog just to let everyone know. There may be a few traces but for the most part the house is cleaned every single week if not twice. Hope you enjoy the house. Dar Guest Access.

The Space*Last-minute requests are welcome.* The apartment is in a classic red brick Victorian building. It maintains many features from the era, including parquet/hardwood floors, a gas fireplace (non-functional), and large 4-foot-wide windows with south and western exposures for lots of natural light. The guest room and our bedroom are located on the northwest end of the apartment; the guest room has two queen size beds (one of which is lofted). The living room also has a thick, comfortable, full-size futon bed. We also have a pack-n-play available. We generally have access to an off-street parking spot for an extra $5 per day; Sunday street parking (and overnight parking every night) is free. There's also a parking garage a block away that's $1 an hour. We're located in-between the Capitol building and one of Madison's two major lakes (including a large park with beach and playground). We live in a building that's more than century old, which means we get to enjoy the charms that come with historical architecture, but we also have to accept its quirks (like outlets in amusing/befuddling places). If you've never lived in an old building, a few things to note: - It can get a bit dusty, despite regular cleaning. - Sometimes the outlets are hard to find, though we utilize out-of-the-way extension cords and power strips to mitigate this for guests. - Some of the doors squeak and some of the floorboards creak. It's a lovely place with charm and character, but every now and then, a window gets a bit stuck; hot water can take a few minutes to reach our bathroom. We love our home not in spite of, but because of, these little quirks. We hope you will, too. :) Guest AccessPrivate bedroom. Shared living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Our home is your home. Our two cats, Gus and Baxter, are sociable, low-key creatures. They're ragdoll/siamese mix, and so are considered hypoallergenic. Interaction with GuestsEvery guest is different. When schedules convene, we like to chat and connect. We're proud Wisconsinites; Brad's lived in Madison for 9 years and done a lot of local traveling, so he's pretty familiar with the area. We're always happy to make recommendations and help you find what you're looking for. The NeighborhoodWe're located very centrally, so there's lots to do within a short walk. There are a variety of bars and restaurants, museums, shops, and clubs close by, as well as a plethora of activities for children. James Madison Park, which includes a beach, playground and volleyball court, is one block away. Strolling State Street or visiting a farmer's market are both classic Madison. Getting AroundThe front step is quite literally a bus stop. The Capitol Square is the main bus hub for the city, so you can get a bus going most anywhere from there. Discounted bus passes are available next door to our building. We also have two spare bikes for guests to use, and we often have an off-street parking spot across the street available for $5 a day.

Guest AccessGuests will have full access to both yards outside as well as the common areas inside including the living room, bathroom, kitchen, and dining room / sun room (over looks Monona Bay to the west with beautiful sunsets!) The only areas without guest access are to the host's bedroom and the detached garage. Interaction with GuestsAlthough I do travel nationally for work (and internationally for fun :), I am currently home for the summer. As a Madison native and UW alumni, I am more than happy to show guests the ins and outs of the city! However, as a fellow frequent traveler, I know relaxing at the end of the day with simple peace and quiet can be just as rewarding.

Guest AccessGuests will have access to the whole apartment and coin-free washer and dryer in the basement. Interaction with GuestsI will greet all guests, whenever possible, walk them though the apartment and answer any questions. I am also happy to be there when they check-out if that is preferable. In the event I am not there to greet guests, I will negotiate ahead of time how to pick up keys. Typically, I'll be staying just twenty minutes away with family, and therefore can be on call via text, mobile and email for any emergencies, questions, or other forms of assistance. There is no driveway parking but there is free parking across the street along the park. Getting AroundOur house is located on a block with a stop for multiple major bus lines (very easy to get to the Capitol (1 mile away) and UW campus (2.2 miles away). Other Things to NoteJust a few notes: 1) I have wireless internet access and there is a flat screen television with rabbit ears and Apple TV to watch Neflix, etc., but no cable television. PBS (I'm a nerd) and major non-cable channels come in crystal clear, but if you are an avid cable watcher and this is a deal-breaker for your vacation, then unfortunately my place is not the space for you; 2) The house sits up high in elevation and thus has a long-ish staircase leading up to it, along with one flight of stairs up to my second floor abode. Regrettably, this is not ADA compliant, and it might pose a problem for a guest with a specific disability or who struggles with stairs. 3) The house is a 1920s tudor and has limited heat in the bathroom only (the rest of the house is steam heat and quite toasty), so slippers or thick socks in the winter are helpful (what can I say? "character" in a home comes with minor drawbacks *wink*). 4) Contrary to one review, I do provide shampoo, toothpaste, body soap and lotion for guests, located in the bathroom closet, guaranteed.

The SpaceOur house is in the heart of the Dudgeon Monroe neighborhood, one of the best places to live in Madison. There are some great spots nearby including Vic Allen's coffee shop, Brasserie V Pub, Trader Joe's for groceries, New Orleans Take Out and a breakfast favorite of Madisonians: Mickey's Dairy Bar. We are walking distance to the stadium for anyone who is coming in for a football game and close to downtown for anyone who is in Madison on business. Shawn (my fiancé) and I are very flexible - he can stay up late to let people in at any hour. Guest AccessGuests have a private entrance through the garage, private use of the entire bottom floor of the house, a private bathroom with a shower, access to a small fridge and on-site laundry for a small fee. Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to interact with guests and are also happy to give them space and privacy if that works better. We go out frequently to get dinner or attend events and guests who like to mingle are invited to come with us if and when we do. The NeighborhoodIt's the best neighborhood in Madison! Getting AroundBus stop that picks up every 15 minutes during business hours is one block away. Bike path that goes downtown is right across the street.

The SpaceYou basically will have an entire level to yourself. It is very private with a semi-private entrance also. Our house is very cozy and quiet. We have a cat but he is very shy and never bothers guests unless they show him attention. The room and bathroom are very clean and fresh. You are welcome to make yourself at home in any of the public spaces. Guest AccessGuests will have access to living room, family room with TV, kitchen, dining room, private bedroom and a private bathroom. We have a piano that you are welcome to use also. Interaction with GuestsIf we are home, we would love to talk to you about Madison and tell you what we know. We love learning about our guests too and where they are traveling from. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is very quiet, friendly and safe but within walking distance to so many things. We are 2 blocks from a beautiful picturesque park that has public fireplaces, trails and a beautiful overlook. We are 3 blocks away from great shopping and restaurants. Getting AroundWe are on the bus line. We are also very close to bike paths and bike rentals. Other Things to NoteNo additional guests unless pre-approved. No perfumes or colognes allowed.

The SpaceOur garden-level apartment is near all that Madison has to offer, though is wonderfully free from traffic noise and other city disturbances. Our meditation room includes two zafus and zabutons that you are welcome to use. Guest AccessYou will have access to our entire one-bedroom apartment. When we rent this apartment, we are staying at our country home, which is about 1/2-hour away from the apartment. Interaction with GuestsMy wife or I will make it a point to greet you, and in the event that our schedules are out-of-sync, we will leave a key for you to let yourself in. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is wonderfully near all that Madison has to offer, yet is quiet and cozy. You'll be near the Vilas Park Zoo, the University of Wisconsin campus (sports fans - we're near Camp Randall and Kohl Center), Meriter and St. Mary's hospitals, and the city's beautiful lakes. Getting AroundThe nearest bus stop is 50-feet from the door! The Madison bike sharing system, B-Cycle, has a station one-block from the apartment, and there are many bike paths nearby, too. Other Things to NoteOur apartment is quiet, though during the heating season, the boiler sometimes makes audible clicks and clacks. The boiler is in an insulated room adjacent to the apartment, though the lightest sleepers may find the sound disruptive.

The SpaceWe lived in this unit when we were grad students, fixed it up, restored the woodwork, added new flooring and other upgrades. It's most spectacular feature: Large living room windows that provide a nice, light-filled, open feel. Furnishings are basic but comfy. Bedroom: A full-sized bed, two dressers, a small armoir, bedstand and lamp. Living Room: Sofa (with fold-away bed), coffee table, solid wood table & chairs, lamps, bookshelf, windows outfitted with roman shades/window warmers. Kitchen: dining room table & chairs, solid wood kitchen table & chairs, and, of course, microwave, stove & fridge (EnergyStar). Plenty of utensils: Glasses, mugs, plates, knives, forks, etc. Cookware includes pots, pans, mixing bowls, serving plates & bowls, cooking utensils, etc. Maybe not outfitted for a full-on chef's operations, but for basic cooking, it is all here. Laundry: On-site washer (EnergyStar front-loader) & dryer--included (shared in common area). Living space comfort: We've invested in significant, green upgrades with energy efficiency and comfort as priority. Super insulation in walls and window warmer shades, combined with a modern, ultra-high-efficiency EnergyStar hydronic heating (Viessmann!)--makes for very even heat in winter and nice & cool in summer. And the dense-packed insulation silences most outdoor sounds. Classic, clean bathroom fixtures including claw foot tub. Did I mention they are old? Yup. Original. Early indoor plumbing. But still very functional. One exception: a new, high performance, EPA Watersense toilet. In summer, the backyard is great for hanging out, grilling, etc. Outdoor clothesline is available in backyard, too. Did I mention the house is old? It is very old. The floors are uneven, as is typical with houses of this age. The walls are original plaster, meaning there are some imperfections (if you look really hard, you'll see the wavey plaster over the lath; a seam here & there). The windows are old, a little wonky, but they are serviceable. In sum, there is a lot of character here. It isn't perfect, there is nothing fancy. It never was fancy--it was a farmhouse (now in the middle of a cool urban neighborhood). As far as furnishings, the apartment does not conform to the standard IKEA aesthetic that seems to be taking over the Airbnb world. Indeed, this is Old World Wisconsin--with key updates! In sum, it is a very clean & comfortable place for people who like the quirkiness of old houses in old, quintessentially upper-midwestern, mixed-use, walkable neighborhoods. This would be ideal for one or two (Max: 2 human entities, no matter the age or size). Guest AccessYour apartment is separately, privately locked. Common front entry is locked. Shared laundry is in common hallway, shared bike storage in garage. There is another, separately locked apartment downstairs, permanently occupied by a very courteous, quiet professor here on sabbatical. Interaction with GuestsI hope to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I live about a mile & a half away and can be called for any issues that may arise. That said, this is not a full-on, concierge, B&B experience. Though thouroughly clean, it does not waft of victorian scented potpourri. Decorations are modest/sparse (other than basic furnishings). Another thing it is not: the Marriott. I am generally available in case issues arise, but it might not be front-desk instantaneous. (I almost always get back within an hour, and usually much faster, if not instantaneously.) So please bear in mind, it is just an apartment, basically furnished and functional in a really cool locale. Martha Stewart might sneer at the interior decoration. And Chef Ramsey would yell at me about kitchen outfittings. But most people have loved the place and gotten a kick out of my off-beat advice for visiting the city & environs. And the location makes for a great base camp for exploring the city by foot, bike, bus..... So this is ideal for self-sufficient travelers. For others, I strongly suggest The Collins House B&B (usually listed here on AirBnB). Super nice guys run it, Bob & David are the best hosts one could hope for! In any case, if our schedules permit, I will try to swing by to say hi! And hopefully we'll be able to invite you for a drink at our local watering hole, the Harmony Bar, or perhaps to a show if my wife's band is playing. But no obligations on your part, of course. The NeighborhoodTenney-Lapham is one of the most beloved neighborhoods in the city. It is, according to WalkScore, "Very Walkable" (Walkscore=78), "Biker's Paradise" (Bikescore=93), "Good Transit" (transit score=53; this is actually a very high score for a city without rail transit). I would add that it is very convivial. It is a mix of grad students, state workers, academic staff & professors, young professionals, families headed by professionals, blue collar workers and service industry workers. Many of all of the above are involved in a myriad of creative pursuits Madison is known for. This neighborhood captures everything that makes Madison the easy-going & fun place that it is. All that adds up to a busy place. And so it is important to disclose that East Johnson Street is a lively street. However, the house is so well insulated (dense packed!) that most street sounds won't be heard in the house itself. Locales: Forequarter and Sujeo are among the best restaurants in town; both within two blocks. Johnson Public House is, in my opinion--an opinion informed by having lived in Italy for 4 years!--one of the top three coffee houses in town; it is across the street. Taguara, a Venezuelan restaurant, just opened up to rave reviews (and after our first visit, I agree!). A classic sole-proprietor bike shop is across the street. Burnie's Rock Shop is a rockhound's/jeweler's paradise, beloved far & wide, just down the block. Studio 924 Hair Salon, across the street, attracts people from all over the city. Half a block away is a classic owner-operated corner shop. Two blocks to a brand new full-service grocery store. But wait, there's more! Too much more for me to list here....! Tenney Park, four blocks away, is Ice Skating Central in the wintertime. Skates are rented there, so anyone can enjoy it. (Think "Charlie Brown's Christmas"!!!). It is great for strolling or hangin' on the beach in the summer! James Madison Park is two blocks away. It is famous for it's sun bathing/frisbee beach during our two weeks of summer. The rest of the year it is a great place to watch waves freeze in mid-curl! And just recently an old ballfield two blocks away has become a center of sports events (lots of soccer), and even concerts: Breese Stevens Field. Wilco & Kurt Vile are on tap summer '16! I just have to note that the field & stadium was built, stone cut by stone cut, by hand, through one of Roosevelt's socialist programs back in the Deep Depression of the 30s--The Works Progress Administration, to be precise. In the urban renewalist 70s & 80s the short-sighted city bosses wanted to knock down this tribute to solid quality workmanship (too old fashioned in their pinched world view). Fortunately, several alums of the WPA protested and it was saved. Well, from the wrecking ball anyway. It was left to neglect for another 30 years. Finally, FINALLY the city woke up to the value of this structurally solid, historic, neighborhood-scaled venue, invested some significant rehab funds and now it is a favorite destination for big sports tournaments, live music, pop-up markets, etc. It is total class. Almost as great a feeling of being a part of history as seeing a live show in a Roman Arena in Verona, Italy! And it is only two blocks away from this apartment! And yes, there is lots more, very walkable, very nearby.... So the good: The area puts you within walking/biking/bus distance of the very best fun Madison has to offer. The caveats: Please be aware that the street the apartment is on is a lively one. It is about 1.5 miles from one of the largest campuses in the world--UW-Madison. It is a campus famous for its, shall we say, fun-loving culture. (The undergrads love to brag that it is a "Study Hard/Party Hard school!") As a general matter, things are pretty peaceable out this way, as the house sits a good mile+ outside of the Campus/State Street party district. Most undergrads now live in the towers much closer-in to campus. So this is outside of the intense party district. But, it is what it is: a 2-flat house in a fun-loving city in a fun-loving neighborhood. A suburban cul-de-sac, it is not. There are neighborhood festivals with amplified music nearby in summer (usually done by 10pm). There is traffic (not very noticeable inside the apartment though; really only noticeable at rush hour when outside). That said, the house is well insulated, so most sounds from outside are silenced or at least very deadened (it is a pleasant surprise for most people who stay here!). But if your windows are open, it will not just be crickets you'll hear. Immediate neighbors, including the neighboring tenant and those of surrounding houses and nearby blocks are very respectful & quiet. I just want to be upfront that this is not a completely silent location for the reasons listed above. To reiterate: The area is not suburban quiet. All of the above applies to virtually any Madison listing within two miles of campus. But if you are here to enjoy all the fun Madison has to offer, this is a prime location (see my guide for more!). We lived here for five years and loved it! It has only gotten better since! To get a picture of the street, it might be worth viewing it on a well-known streetview/mapping program. Getting AroundInconvenient to the Interstate! In other words, easy for a car-free or car-lite stay. One block to coffee, art & lake. Easy walk to the Capitol. Quick bus/bike to campus. Bus lines: 2, 5, 9 & 10 (campus express), 28 (commuter express) and 81 campus late night bus all a half block away (all are accessible near the downtown Van Galder/Megabus/Badger inter-city bus stop). In sum, VERY convenient walk/bike/bus to campus and downtown! From Campus/Van Galder/Megabus, just head east on West Johnson St, which becomes E. Johnson past the capitol, til you get to Paterson St. (the 900 block of *East* Johnson St). 25 minute walk, 10 minute bike from campus. Or hop on these buses going toward east/north transfer points: 2, 5, 28, 9, exit at Paterson St., walk east 1/2 block, house on right (South side of E. Johnson). There is even a late night campus bus that runs frequently til 2 or 3 am. If you take a taxi, and you are from country where tipping is not customary (Europe, etc.), please, Please, PLEASE remember to tip your cabbie. It *is* customary here. Tips are how they make their living! Revolution Bicycles in the Atwood neighborhood is great for finding used bicycles outfitted to your specifications at a reasonable cost. Owned & staffed by bike-cultured, bike-passionate wrenches. It is the best bike spot to find out about all things bike (routes, politics, gear, etc.). Machinery Row Bicycles is a good shop, locally owned, but more corporate in feel. They focus on new bike sales, but also rent nice bikes at a reasonable cost. B-Cycle is Madison's bike share outfit. Nearest B-Cycle station is located right around the corner on N. Paterson St. at Reynolds Field. Budget Bicycles on Regent St. Has a free bike loan program. It's called Red Bikes. Just give them a $40 deposit (or credit card #) and you get a bike. It isn't a super high end bike, but is in highly tuned up condition thanks to the ace mechanics there. When you are done--no matter how long you use it!--you get your $40 back. Even if it is wrecked and the tires are flat! (I had a little something to do with the founding of the Red Bikes program founding when it was in its non-profit phase!) We have a bike storage area in the detached garage for the free use of guests. The door locks, but ultimately, bike security is guest's responsibility. If you are coming by air, especially internationally, consider booking your flight to/from Chicago--not Madison--and taking our most excellent, frequent and beloved(!) regional bus service--Van Galder. Other Things to NoteThis is a new Airbnb listing so it has no ratings. However, our apartment below has quite a few ratings, with an overall ~4.5 stars. The calendar for this apartment is open for only two months. But if you think you might want it for longer, I will try to open the calendar for a longer stay. Please note: This flat is part of a clean air house. My main concern is to convey that this offer of housing is not valid for smokERS/burners of anything, anywhere (including outside). This is because I wish to keep the place comfortable and welcoming--a home--for the permanent tenant in the other unit as well as for the comfort of future Airbnb guests. Some things to note: This is a "housekeeping" housing situation. A clean apartment with linens and other furnishings is provided, but there are no routine services provided during the stay (cleaning, computer networking, etc.). Emergency repairs, of course, will be serviced. For liability reasons, maintaining safe access to the house (e.g., in winter weather) is the guest's responsibility (shovels provided; the sidewalk is very short). Wifi is offered on an as-is basis and is a courtesy separate from the offer of housing. There is no guarantee of the reliability of the Internet Service Provider's services (e.g., cable co.) or the functioning of the wifi router. Network security is entirely the responsibility of the user (VPN is strongly suggested). There are no networking services other than the provision of wifi network name and password. In the event of a service outage, we will make every effort to get service restored. However, in the case of an outage that we are unable to rectify within 24 hours of guest's notice of outage, a refund of $2.50/day will be issued up to $25/mo. Because of these acknowledged limitations and the refund in the event of outage, the performance of wifi should not be a basis of negative ratings on Airbnb. The House Rules are the same ones agreed to by the very responsible tenant in the other unit (a respectful & quiet downstairs neighbor, a professor here on sabbatical).

The SpaceThe larger bedroom capacity is two adults and one child. If you are three adults, let me know: I can open up my son's room for the third adult for an additional $30. Sorry, this rule was required by the city of Madison Health Dept. when they did their annual inspection. I, like an idiot, agreed to follow it and now it's a matter of integrity. Guest AccessCome and go as you please; parking is easy in our driveway or on the street. Dock, raft, paddle boat, and row boat are available thru mid-October. Interaction with GuestsI enjoy sitting down with a warm or cold drink and getting to know new people. However I have plenty to keep me busy, so if a guest wants to keep to him/her self, that is just fine with me. I'm happy to offer restaurant recommendations, etc. The NeighborhoodPeople jogging, roller-blading, paddlebording, skiing or and cross-country skiing past our front window make it fun. Two coffee shops within walking distance. Many restaurants a short 4-6 blocks away: Mexican, Japanese, Indian, Chinese, Italian, as well as normal fare. Getting AroundThere is a "red bike" rental ~ 6 blocks away, what they call station "V" at Vilas Park @ Arboretum, 850 S. Mills St. For info see this website: (URL HIDDEN) This is a delightful and cheap ($8 for a month) way to get around Madison! Also, bus stops 3 and 5 blocks away. Other Things to NoteThe larger bedroom has a bunk bed (single over double) and a rocking chair. The smaller bedroom has a twin bed. Everyone says they sleep well and like the beds. You'll have a full bathroom to yourself.
