Linda's home was even better than described. It is absolutely charming & a perfect home away from home! Linda was the perfect hostess. The location was ideal as it was a short walk to many amenities, and a short drive to the UW campus.

Very lovely home in an extremely quiet neighborhood. Everything was as described. Linda was very accommodating to our schedule as we arrived later in the evening due to our flight and was helpful regarding our checkout. Great communication throughout.

This was the second time that me and my colleague stayed at the house of Linda. Everything was familiar, clean and good. Linda had some food for breakfast and coffee so that gave us a good start in the morning. The house is great, since the weather was good we used the BBQ a few times on the large patio in the large garden. We were there for business, but there is a golf course on walking distance. Maybe we can go there next time. I can recommend the house and Linda as a host.

Linda's home is absolutely wonderful! It's centrally located and minutes from grocery stores, downtown, restaurants etc. She and her family were most welcoming to me and my family during our stay for Ironman. It was nice to cook our own meals - being able to use the grill out on the back deck which overlooked their beautiful back yard- was wonderful. I had a few questions leading up to and during our stay and they were extremely responsive!! 5/5 from us!!!

Wonderful experience! Linda and her husband met us to give us a tour and get us settled. The location is awesome - about 5-10 minutes from the UW-Madison campus - close enough but also far enough away from the campus crowds. The house is very nice - warm and inviting - with a great back deck and back yard as well as a bright sunroom. Highly recommend!

Linda was professional and very friendly, emailing me the day before our arrival with all necessary details. She only stayed for a few minutes to show us around and make sure we were comfortable. The house was immaculate and perfect for our visit.
