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.
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.
