We absolutely loved this 1 bedroom loft - it was even more adorable in person than the photos allow. It is nicely updated, and even has a little deck with a conversation set. We were only using it for one night to go to a concert, so I feel we didn't get to fully appreciate the accommodations, but we will definitely stay here again if we head back to Fond Du Lac. Also, Sam was extremely responsive and friendly :)
Always welcome back! Thx!! -Sam
Great place to stay!
This loft was great for our stay in Fond du Lac. Sam was very easy to work with. The property is in a super location downtown - we walked to breakfast every morning. It's right around the corner from the Thelma Sadoff Center For the Arts, and there was an outdoor concert one night we were there! The space is very clean - which is super important to me. My only suggestion would be more window coverings - at least on the sliding glass door. This is less for modesty's sake (no one is going to see in) than to shut out some of the light for anyone sleeping on the futons. The sun comes up pretty early in the summer months here! The master bedroom has shutters, so it's not an issue for those sleeping in the bed.
Clean, quiet, and a great location.
Booked this place for my parents and I while visiting. We really enjoyed the space, and the owner was great to deal with. Only recommendation I would make would be the addition of curtains for the windows as they let in a good bit of light from the street lights outside.
Gorgeous Space...Almost Perfect
My sisters and I stayed here last week for one evening. Check in and out was a breeze. Sam was helpful and responsive.
The lift is gorgeous and quiet. It was nice to have our own entrance and exit. The lift was well appointed in regards to furniture, decorations, and kitchen needs.
My only negative is that there are no window coverings. Since it is a loft, there are many, many windows. We did not mind the light so much; we wanted our privacy. We propped pillows in the bathroom windows to increase our comfort level when getting in and out of the shower. This property will forever be remembered as "The Naked Loft."
Would be great if properly equipped
The space is new and modern. Industrial chic. The apartment is spacious, well laid out, has a very comfortable bed and plenty of storage. Everything is new, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, etc. All very attractive. It is within walking distance of Main St., the library and the performing arts center. The neighborhood is surprisingly quiet for a downtown location.
Unfortunately, there are many things missing from the apartment. There is no WIFI! Granted, we should have read the listing more carefully or inquired, but WIFI is a given. Until now, we’ve never been in a HomeAway without WIFI. Other things were missing that would have made the apartment functional – coffee maker, cups or mugs, dish towels, ice cube trays, toaster, salt. Also, the unit has a nice patio, sans furniture. Some of the kitchen shelves are quite high. No step stool. This is rental is not for you unless someone in your party is six feet tall. Also, being an intown location, there are many street lights. Window treatments to screen out their brightness would have been appreciated.
In short, this is a well located, great space that is not living up to its potential. Sam is not yet ready for HomeAway, prime time. Right now, we cannot give a high rating. Properly equipped we would gladly give this unit five stars.
If you read the listing you would've seen there isn't Wifi within the unit but I informed the guest that there is free Wifi throughout our downtown as provided by the city. Most people have internet via smartphones now. I suspect the guest, like many of us, is technologically challenged and had difficulty figuring it out. There is also free internet access at the library located a 1/2 block away.
There are plenty of coffee shops within walking distance if you want toast and coffee. I have ordered blinds. There is patio furniture now as it was just put out for the season. As for the other items, I'll do my best to purchase some additional mugs, etc.
