Karyl is a wonderful generous host. She knows Madison well and is full of helpful advice. For our twelve night stay it felt like a real home from home in a lovely house and garden in a great area of Madison. The piano, watching baby chicks growing and playing with her lovely little dog Milly were all bonuses. Go there if you can!

Karyl was an absolute pleasure! The room was everything as expected! She went above and beyond at my arrival and had an amazing beef stew and wine avaliable for me, which was much needed after dealing with delayed flights and jet lag. Karyl made my time at her home very comfortable and assisted me in every way possible as I became acclimated to the area. She is an amazing host and person. I would definitely recommend her home to anyone traveling to the area.

She went out of her way to make us feel welcome in her home. The home is in a very nice part of Madison and only a few minute drive downtown. Very comfortable and welcoming. Would gladly book a room here again in our future visits.

We had a very nice stay at Karyl's place. The bed was comfy and we appreciated the convenience of being right by the main floor bathroom. Also liked the many windows in the living looking out onto the garden and backyard. Although we didn't get to meet Karyl in person due to our busy schedule, she was very communicative throughout our stay and we felt any questions we may have had would've been answered quickly.

Everything was perfect.

Karyl is an excellent host. Her house and yard is beautiful and well located. The room is as described and very comfortable. We would stay again and definitely recommend to a friend!

It has been an absolute delight staying at Karyl's home. She is an excellent host anticipating any need you could have and her home is beautifully tucked away on the west side of Madison, not to far from the city center, but next to many parks bike paths and walking paths. Her dog Milly is a funny little pet, if you do get the chance to meet her. If you are visiting Madison, I would recommend staying here.
