About Amber

We are a family of world travelers, now living our travel dreams through our guests. We have two children, ages 11 and 9.

Amber purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Amber chose St Paul

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

We appreciated the comfortable spaces and the streaming sunlight.

Ladies Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay for our 19th annual get together. As there were 12 of us, we rented the whole house. Having connection between the two floors offered loads of space along with privacy. We loved having the well appointed living and dining spaces by the owner, for crafting and hanging out all together! Upon arrival, we found the space so comfortable and ready for us to enjoy. Would return at anytime!

Great place & wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were getting married and had family flying in from California, Florida, Pennsylvania, and even Vietnam. Because his family prefers to stay with family together rather than in a hotel and we had just bought a house that we weren't in any shape to host yet, this place fit our needs. It didn't hurt that the price was right, the owners were kind, and the place was wonderfully kept!

We received positive feedback from his family regarding the location because it was close to downtown while still being in a safe neighborhood, good nearby restaurants, and nearby Asian markets for cooking during their 4-day stay. It was also within 30 mins of where we lived, the rest of my family was located, and our wedding site. The owner was exceptionally kind and flexible in meeting our families needs. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

What a wonderful house,

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented both upstairs and downstairs for 5 nights. It was magical. Our nephew was married. We hosted the grooms dinner in the back yard for 50. The apartment slept 10 and everyone was very comfortable -room for more. Lovely kind neighbors and landlords. One street off of the famous Summit Ave. Spotlessly clean with every amenity. We could get anywhere in St. Paul in minutes. Oh what fun.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a marvelous, spacious apartment. Lovely, mission-style interior, nicely kept up and a quiet neighborhood--the weather was forbidding, and we were happy to spend the entire day lounging about. Very charming and thoughtful hosts as well.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

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.
