Welcome to the Pearson Jewelbox, in the heart of Milwaukee's desirable lower East Side. Built in the 1890s, this single-family cottage home has been lovingly restored merging the charm of its original design with all of today's modern features and comforts. Owned and decorated by artists, the home features eclectic antiques and collectibles, Mid-century and contemporary furnishings, vintage light fixtures, and amusing artwork. We're just minutes from downtown, UW-Milwaukee, MSOE and MATC.

The space

Keeping with the period it was built, the Jewelbox is small and cozy, but provides ample space for two. Just off the living room, you'll find a long bedroom with a queen bed, dresser, large custom-designed closet, stained glass window, large mirror and ensuite bathroom. The large bath has a roomy tiled shower. The dining room has a striking chandelier over an original Jens Risom dining table. The kitchen is completely remodeled and features a farm sink, stainless appliances, an artist designed metal table on wheels, and a vintage school bench.

As frequent Airbnb guests, we understand what makes for an ideal stay. The Jewelbox is stocked with the essentials you expect, such as cookware, dishes, silverware, coffee pot, glasses, towels, linens and blankets. We've also added the extras you want, such as stemware, hotel quality sheets and pillows, books, artwork, cloth napkins, wooden hangers, a blender, an iron and ironing board, laundry detergent, hand cream, tea, bottled water, a bottle of wine, soft drinks, a few beers, snacks and more.

Guest access

You'll have the full first floor of the Jewelbox to enjoy. The unfinished second-floor attic and basement are closed off for storage. And during the warmer months, you'll love the adorable, secluded and landscaped backyard.

Interaction with guests

We live just a few homes away and are available to assist, when and if needed. You can reach us by phone, text or email.

Other things to note

Street parking is typically readily available right on Pearson Street, which offers angled parking. Milwaukee requires a permit for long-term street parking or you can register your car online for short-term stays.

Early check-in or late check-out may be an option. Just ask.

The house was in stellar condition, clean and super stylish. I loved the decor! Check-in and check out were a breeze, Jan was very responsive, and there are many great bars, restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough!

Jan's place is a true gem in MKE. Not only was it sparkling clean, but there were so many neat touches to the place that made it feel like home. Thanks for keeping Shlitz in the fridge and pastries on the counter! I felt so incredibly at home here, and I'll return if I ever come back.

We had the best stay at the Jewel Box! We felt incredibly welcome and were so grateful for the personal touches and hospitality. We also loved being able to listen to some new vinyl we purchased during the day. Great location, we will certainly be back!!

This was by far the coolest Airbnb we’ve ever stayed in! The renovations made to home were perfect and everywhere you looked there was something new to see! Makes me want to redecorate our home! We especially loved the edible goodies, comfy bed, rain shower, and the farmhouse sink! Overall, the amenities are amazing, the location is great, and the price is right; what more could you want? We can’t wait to return, thanks again!

We absolutely loved staying at the Jewel Box. The place was exactly as described. It was a short walk to restaurants, bars, deli, bakery, coffeshop, breweries, and a great river walk. Jan was very communicative but not overly so. The apartment was clean and well decorated. There was even a few welcoming treats in the fridge! Great experience and would definitely stay here again and recommended anyone to do so.
