A Little Urban Oasis in The Heart of Bay View
Going by what the hosts Brett and Anna like to call it, this one-bedroom “urban oasis” is a beautifully designed bright and sunny apartment on the first floor of an 1870s Polish Flat is located among one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Milwaukee.

Basement of The House Hosted by Brett and Anna
Owing to the Polish Flat construction of the building, the second guest space of the above listed building hosted by Brett and Anna is not your typical everyday basement. Though the front door and the foyer are shared with the upper unit, everything else is self-contained and this unit of the house has a private patio as well where the guests can chill during the warmer months. Since there’s another guest unit just above this one, the hosts do not recommend this one for very light sleepers.
