Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this lovely vacation rental in Minneapolis for two weeks over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were delighted to meet Margots and his wife Anita. They were wonderful hosts who saw to our every need. Margots picked us up at the airport when we arrived and took us back when we left. He also provided us with a car to rent which was convenient and very reasonably priced.

The one bedroom apartment is truly lovely! The kitchen is filled with exquisite pots, pans, dishes and modern appliances just like home. We made our Thanksgiving dinner there! The bedroom has a beautiful antique four post king size bed. The living room couch also makes into a bed and the bathtub is a jacuzzi. In the bathroom are top of the line washing machine and dryer.

We are looking forward to seeing Margots and Anita again and staying at their vacation rental when we return to Minneapolis.

Comfortable Place to Call Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our birthday weekend in Minneapolis with the Mall of America and a Minnesota Vikings game. It was always nice to come home to this place. This house is cozy and close to everything.

Would love to come back in the summer time to enjoy the beautiful yard and private deck. Thanks for everything!

Better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at a hotel in the area prior to staying here, and we immediately wished we would have stayed here the whole time. This place has everything you need! After spending a ton of money on Ubers/taxis during the first part of our trip while in a hotel, we really appreciated the walking distance route to the light rail, which we took to go to the Monday night Vikings game without any issues and hardly any cost at all. We also walked to the YWCA gym, which is only 0.5 miles from the home and a super nice gym. Don't get a hotel -- stay here! :)

Minneapolis .. a great little find!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The apartment had wonderful amenities for an out of towner guest, everything was well laid out and needs carefully considered. As a VRBO owner, I know how important these little extras mean for a guest! Location was great with good neighborhood restaurants, and supermarket (Target) nearby. Thanks Margots for making our stay so enjoyable.

Always a pleasure to stay here when I am in the Twin Cities

  • 5 of 5

I am a returning guest, and once again I was nothing short of impressed. From the freshly cut flowers in a vase to the fresh fruit waiting for me, the minute that I walk into the door I feel instantly at home. Margot is only a phone call away if I ever have a question, and always has a bicycle waiting per my request. What a great place to relax or make a meal to enjoy with friends. Very tasteful, and very accommodating would be the best way that I can describe the property, and I will definitely be returning soon.
