We are a family of world travelers, now living our travel dreams through our guests. Our family lives in the downstairs unit, a married couple with two children, ages 11 and 8.

Amber purchased this apartment in 2007

We bought this wonderful duplex after taking a year to travel with two very young children. We wanted to be near colleges (I grew up on a campus in California), with walking and biking opportunities (we bike every day we can). We still travel to visit family, and like being close to the airport, as well as both downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Walking to everything, easy bus access and immediate access to some of the best bicycling in the Twin Cities.

Another great stay

This is our second stay here and once again we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The neighborhood is a great place to walk and convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, and other amenities that make the apartment a very pleasant place to stay. If you have kids, they will enjoy the copious toys--mine certainly did. The owners, who live downstairs, are friendly and helpful.

We arrived hours after a huge storm blew through the area, and saw tall mature trees littering the roads and lawns as though it was a game of pick-up sticks. All notwithstanding, our arrival was as smooth as possible. The owners had a key waiting for us in the lockbox, and we found the apartment to be clean and ready to move in. We enjoyed the safe neighborhood very much, and walked miles every day during our weeklong stay. There is a nice bookshop, bread bakery, and Dunn Bros coffee house all located on the same corner within a 5-10 minute walk. Also nearby is a WholeFoods Store, and a well stocked wine merchant. The owner/manager was away for the week while we were staying, but her husband was around and we enjoyed meeting him very much. The apartment was very quiet, and well equiped with plenty of kitchen equipment. Plumbing & electrical all worked well, and the bed was comfortable. My wife and I would stay here again without hesitation.

We needed a place to stay with our family of five visiting from CA. This was perfect! Very comfortable and spacious and clean. And the owners were friendly and welcoming. They even let us do our family laundry when we arrived after spending four days at a cabin. Also, the neighborhood is just right when visiting St. Paul. It is walking distance from restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, and Whole Foods. Now we have a place to stay when visiting my family in MN!

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit. Our kids had so much fun with the inside and outside toys, and the adults appreciated all the space to spread out. It sure beats a hotel. It was great to have the new dishwasher. I'm sure that we will return.
