About Svein A. Berg

We are a family of five, currently living in Manhattan, New York. Olga is born in Ukraine and Svein is from Norway. Our three children Sebastian, Sophie and Ingrid keep us pretty busy.

Svein A. Berg purchased this house in 2005

Why Svein A. Berg chose St Paul

We bought this house in 2005 when we moved to St. Paul. The house was built in 1889, and has a character and charm that spoke to us. It is in a child friendly neighborhood, with a huge park just and a public tennis court across the street. Mississippi Market, our local Coop with local and organic produce, is just a two minutes walk away.

What makes this house unique

The house has character, and a great floor plan for having friends over.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was terrific, and again, big thank you for renting it to us. We had some family over and they all commented on what a great house you have, very cozy and Christmas-like.

Great for a weekend wedding stay

  • 5 of 5
5 friends rented this property in lieu of a hotel in order to attend a weekend wedding. We loved the house and the convenient location to restaurants and museums. The photos were accurate in the depiction of the property. We loved being able to walk to restaurants and to have friends over afterward. We had breakfast at the table in the garden and enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood. The owner was friendly and helpful with our questions. We even used his membership at the local co-op. I highly recommend staying at this lovely house. We will definitely stay there for the next trip to St. Paul

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5
Superb home for family. Plenty of room, house was in excellent condition, location just a short walk to everything (check out Grand Avenue about four blocks south). My grandson especially enjoyed the toys that were furnished. As grandparents we had brought a huge box of toys, but he found the blocks and puzzles that came with the home and did not touch the toys we brought. Very quiet neighborhood, comfortable beds equal great sleep.
I would recommend this home to anyone traveling to the twin cities (we even got to see the Minnesota Twins win a ball game)-----priceless.

Great time at the Berg House

  • 5 of 5
The house is very well-maintained, very spacious and close to the organic produce store. It felt like home. We shopped there on our first day for the entire week, that was great. I was glad there was a washer/dryer with detergent to use so we did not worry about doing the laundry outside in case we needed to. Since we attended a wedding, I made appointments to a hair salon that was nearby for hair and makeup; that was convenient: the service there was excellent. Our friends who visited said they would actually rent this house if they had to spend some time in Saint Paul with their families. Overall we were very satisfied with the Berg House; would totally recommend! Thank you!

We enjoyed staying in St. Paul. The house location was perfect for our family to meet up and attend a wedding. Having the house kid friendly and a park near by was an added plus. Easy access to restaurants and Grand Avenue.
We would recommend The Berg house to traveler with or without a car.

A Wonderful Large and Welcoming Home

  • 5 of 5
A Great Family Home is how we would describe the Berg House. We spent ten days in St. Paul for our daughter wedding and graduation from William Mitchell College of Law. The house was warm and inviting for eight adults and two children. We’ve rented a number of homes through VRBO and this one felt like home. There were plenty of bedrooms and we enjoyed sitting together for meals at the large dining room that is the center of the home. The children enjoyed the backyard and we were across the street from a wonderful park. We walked to Mississippi Market (grocery store) and used the owner’s membership number for a discount…thank you. We were able to walk to the cleaners, eateries and bars (The Muddy Pig, Sweeneys, and The Happy Gnome), a liquor store, and a fresh flower mart. The home was well equipped with an abundance of towels and extra bedding and the kitchen has everything one needs to prepare meals for large families. A happy bonus was the play kitchen and children’s books that made for many fun moments for our grandchildren.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to enjoy your home. We hope we left it for you as you prepared it for us.
