Heart Haus Described To Royal Agriculture University Visitor, August, 2014

The Heart Haus<http://www.facebook.com/ourhearthaus> seems to have become a node/hub and vortex for all things centering around urban agriculture, holistic living and ecopreneurship/micro enterprising. Staying hear would definitely allow you to be at the center of the amazing things unfolding in our city. (Just ask Nick Rose & Alex Pacheco)

There is an energy of cooperation, collaboration and the most unique attribute is the houses ability to release the potential of the individuals that set foot through the door. Its a place built with and led by Love. So Im confident that you will feel at home here as well as meet some very amazing people.

That being said, the going rate for our guest room is $50 per night, and what I would recommend doing is to stay with us for your first few days and we can help to direct you to the people you should meet and projects to visit. If you enjoy staying with us you are more than welcome to extend your stay via our AirBNB listing (building our website this weekend), or if you find something else that is more fitting we can help you get settled there. Either way we are here to help.

Please let me know if you are working with a more conservative budget, and if you decide to stay the whole month we could work out a discounted rate.

Here are a few of the Heart Haus Attributes & Amenities that you are welcome to utilize:

- Washer & Dryer
- (2) Vegetable Gardens
- Basement Makers Space & Work Shop
- Video Conferencing Room
- Brainstorm Room with White Boards
- Full Kitchen
- Garage Worm & Composting Operation
- Ridiculously fast WiFi

We are located in a very special part of Milwaukee known as Bayview<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay_View,_Milwaukee>, which I like to call The Brooklyn of Milwaukee. There are amazing shops, restaurants and events always going on. We are 10 min from the airport and a 15min Greenline<http://ridemcts.com/Routes-Schedules/Routes/GreenLine/#Weekday> bus ride from downtown Milwaukee and the lakefront. One block from Humboldt Park & Beer garden<http://county.milwaukee.gov/ImageLibrary/Groups/cntyParks/maps/Humboldt.pdf>.

Whether or not you decide to stay at the Heart Haus, we are more than welcome to help you connect to the city in any way we can. I am including the email address of Nick Rose PHD Churchill Fellow from Australia & Alex Pacheco PHD from Earth University of Costa Rica whom both stayed with us. Feel free to email them, which I recommend as they are a great resource for their insights on their Urban Ag experience in Milwaukee & stay at the Heart Haus.

Let me know your thoughts and lets continue the dialog.

Look forward to meeting you, talk soon!

Heart Haus As Airbnb

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4286766

Welcome to our Urban Homestead! Where we grow bodacious tasting food, cook stellar meals together & have the most excellent time doing it. We intentionally created a space for you not only to rest your head but also recharge your heart. Start as our guest, end as our friend!

The Space

Each area of the Heart Haus was crafted with love by friends, family and even strangers. Every room & object has a story and purpose. Nothing is perfect, but everything is just right. We started with a vacant beater house and 100 days later ended up creating a space that not only nurtures all who walk through the door but also the hands & hearts of those that created it. The Heart Haus has a pulse that lives within all that choose to open the door and come in.

Everything including the kitchen sink. We are an experiment in collaborative living, working and most of all playing! A/V Technology needs…click! Washer & Dryer…spin! Fast wifi…zoom! Whiteboard walls…erase! Local hookups…sweet! Cool folk to chill with…chat! Tool room for tinkering…clank! Bikes…crank! Piano…clink! Barber on site…clip! & Juicer…fresh! (We even have homegrown wheatgrass & we can teach you how to grow your own at home!)

Someone is always at the Heart Haus or near by. There are people from all over the city from all walks of life doing all sorts of cool shit. Either stopping by, taking a tour or dreaming up ways to improve ourselves and the world around us. Truly great people come thru our door that are always willing to stop & chat, but most of all to make sure you have a most excellent experience in the city we call home…Milwaukee!

BayView is the Brooklyn of Milwaukee. A very diverse community with the best of our local resturants and shops in the city.

We live a short trip from the airport, lakefront & downtown. We are also right off the greenline which takes you to the coolest places in the city and if you have a car you can easily hop on two main freeways that can take you anywhere north, south, east or west of the city.

My favorite amenity is that we are one block from beautiful Humbolt Park where there is all kinds of low key nature connecting things to appreciate. Plus our neighborhood pizza joint Vinci’s rocks!

An added bonus: If you are a bit under the weather from your travels there is a new Chinese medicine clinic that just open up the street that we heard is pretty rad!

Ps. If you need an ugly christmas sweater, toothbrush, hammer or a double mocha latte there is a Goodwill, Dollar Store, Home Depot & Starbucks 2 blks away (if your into those things)

The Greenline Baby! Look it up, cause it will be your best ally in truly seeing what makes Milwaukee special. Goes from our airport to Bayshore Town Center and every cool neighborhood in between!

The Heart Haus is a work in progress, we aren’t perfect, but dedicated to making sure you “In Joy” your stay with us and our city. So if you need something, ask. If something isn’t working, let us know. But most of all feel free to be yourself. You have our permission to be human and have a blast!

House Rules

“Be excellent to each other and party on down dudes!”

Not a rule but more of an exercise in mindfulness and slowing down: We ask all visitors to take off their shoes when in the Haus.

Another request: We ask all guests is to sign our book at some point while staying with us. Answer the question: Who are you, and what do you have to say? Drop some knowledge, crack a joke, give constructive feedback (like Khadija who said our bathroom needed work…lol…thank you KK!) but most of all participate in the legacy of love we are creating together.

First Airbnb Review

Heart Haus is truly an experience. It’s so unique. It’s a home. It’s a community space. It’s an idea in urban planning. Ben was a fantastic host and educated us on the variety of things (email hidden), and the history of this home. He could not be more accommodating and exemplifies what the AirBnB experience is supposed to be. We came to that house as strangers and left as friends. And when we return to Milwaukee, I hope we can stay again.
