Interaction with guests
I live in the first floor apartment and am available to answer questions or provide recommendations. I do travel quite a bit but can always be reached through email or text. I'll attempt to be available when you check in but, if I'm not, the apartment is equipped with keyless entry and you ll be provided with a unique security code for your stay.
Other things to note
While the second story apartment is pet-free, I do live on the first floor with my 7 lbs sidekick, Lilly the Miniature Pinscher. Those with severe dog allergies please take note. The house is on a single furnace and the floors share duct work.
And, speaking of Lilly, she does bark when people come and go but generally quiets down quickly.
And, speaking of noise, please be aware that we re two blocks from one of Madison's main traffic arteries, a block from the train tracks, and a 15 minute drive from the airport so normal city noises should be expected.
The property was well-represented by the photos and was just as described. Alex was great and made our trip memorable and carefree.
This was great. Came to Ironman competition and was near venue. Parking was a challenge but doable. Clean place. Cute. Comfortable. Recommend!
Alex's apartment was truly lovely. One of the nicest places I've ever rented! The space itself got gorgeous natural light, cool cross breezes, making for a calm and relaxing stay. The apartment was clean and simple with all the right touches. Alex took care of the important little details that so often are overlooked. There was a friendly welcome note to greet us. A guide to local spots to explore. The pantry was stocked with olive oil, coffee and all the basics. The kitchen was spic and span, equipped with high quality cookware. The bathroom had nice soaps, a hair dryer and was in mint condition. Overall, the decor was tasteful and cozy without being cluttered. Coming back to the apartment was always a treat! Thank you, Alex!
The first thing we said on arriving at the property was "Do we really have to go out tonight?" The unit is honestly beautiful -- comfortable, well decorated, modern, and conveniences I did not previously know I needed. We didn't find a single thing to complain about all weekend; during the occasional rain, we were more than happy to kick back and just enjoy the space. Alex is a great host, too. We arrived to a selection of teas and coffees and a curated list of the best restaurants and attractions in Madison. She was quick to offer recommendations but never TOO involved in our stay. This property will be our first choice for future trips to Madison.
We loved our stay in Madison! The apartment is pristine, beautifully maintained and super home away from home. We had a long stay for events and work and loved having a market and restaurants within walking distance. The kitchen was lovely with all new appliances and the laundry was super convenient. Very spacious and comfortable. We really loved the neighborhood and enjoyed walks/runs to the lakes. We will definitely stay again during return trips.
We liked everything about this upper 2 bedroom. Our host was always available and easy to reach. The place itself is an excellent remodel and it's in a great neighborhood.
It was a nice, comfortable place to stay. It looked recently renovated and everything was new. We will definitely consider staying again as the location works well for us.
Everything about the apartment is as near to perfect as you could wish. The location is in a great neighborhood within walking distance of a number of great restaurants, bars and music venues. The apartment is roomy with very nice furnishings. I have not seen a kitchen with better appointments - the appliances are very nice, as are the dishes, pots and pans, utensils and silverware. The bed was very comfortable. The linens great. Alex answered our questions immediately and provided great information on area attractions. Plenty of parking on a quiet street and a cute public park across the street. In short - it was perfect and we hope to stay again in the not too distant future.
