My place is close to Downtown Wauwatosa and Elm Grove, shopping, restaurants,Zoo, baseball stadium, state fair, 12 minutes to downtown..

We have a beautiful neighborhood of huge old trees, great for morning walks.

We are (well trained) dog friendly, with bowls and dog beds on each floor:)

The space

Our home is extremely family friendly. Baby gates are already up, outlets protected. We have an awesome finished basement playroom with toys, swings, trampoline. This will be way more fun than a hotel for the little ones!

We have a fenced in backyard with a web tree swing, play set and hot tub.

2 bedrooms are downstairs, (one is our office, we make a queen bed on the floor, so low to ground) and 3 up. 1 full bath downstairs and 2 upstairs. The master has a private bathroom.

Upstairs we have a room with a crib, a room with a bunk-double on bottom (mattress on floor) twin on top, and the master king size bed. We usually take the twin mattress from the top bunk and put it in the crib room floor, if you'd like one more room for an adult. We have an extra pack n play we can put in any room.

The main floor has a couch in the living room which can sleep one, and the basement has a sectional which could sleep 2. The most would be 12 adults and 2 babies.

Guest access

Please avoid bedroom closets and unfinished basement area.

Interaction with guests

I will usually leave a key, and let you enjoy our home on your own.

Other things to note

Feel free to bring pets that don't like to chew, scratch, or pee inside.

We have a dog, so if allergies are a problem, be aware. She won't be there for your stay.

This is our home, so please keep things clean and be respectful of our belongings:)

Great for families -- nice backyard area for lounging and playing. Plenty of space and cooking utensils for a big family dinner. Super quiet neighborhood. Only a 20-minute drive to points of interest in Milwaukee.

Amy's place was the perfect spot for our family reunion! Spacious, clean, and family friendly, with a great location for visiting Milwaukee attractions! Amy was also very responsive to all questions we had during our stay!

Amy's home is wonderful for families with kids! There was a large shaded backyard with a great playground and plenty of toys/books to entertain small ones. It is beautifully renovated and has a spacious kitchen and dining area. The area around the house is beautiful and was great for morning walks. The house is a short drive away from downtown Milwaukee for those who don't want to be in the hustle and bustle.

We came for a Brewer game and Amy's place was perfect- a short drive to Miller Park. Wauwatosa has a nice Farmer's Market where we ate breakfast on Saturday! The house is cute and in a lovely neighborhood with huge trees. If you stay in fall maybe you can get some hickory nuts from the 2 shagbark hickory trees in the yard. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths! As is, this place would be best for a couple families with kids, as two of the bedrooms had mattresses on the floor. There is a FUN playroom for kids in the basement as well as a nice fenced in shady backyard with a hot tub, play equipment, a disc golf 'hole' for the older 'kids', a fire pit and nice patio for hanging out.

This was a great place for our group of 10 to stay. There were many room and bed options. The playroom downstairs and the backyard were wonderful play places for my 3-year-old. There was adequate room in the common rooms for all of us to spend time together. We had a wonderful time in Amy's home. She was also very responsive to communication before annd during our stay.
