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; public transit is possible, but not direct. Other Things to Note*There is no heat/AC vent 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
