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 Summit - University

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.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for my daughter's college graduation and had a great time. The house is comfy and practical with enough space for people to spread out. The house amenities include TV, wifi, a fully stocked kitchen, great towels and pillows. The house is located in a great area close to restaurants, the Cathedral, and more. The neighborhood is quiet with a wonderful little park area. This is a great house in a wonderful location; book it.

Spacious and Clean! Great location

  • 5 of 5

The first homeowners we booked with canceled with less than a 24 hour notice. Svein was kind enough to allow us to stay there on extremely short notice. The house had lots of room and everything we needed. The location was convenient to head to the Mall of America and the Science Museum. We would stay here again.

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a small group work retreat and had a great time. The house is in a great location, walking distance to many shops, restaurants and grocery. It is very spacious and more beautiful than the pictures show. Everything was very well stocked and sparkling clean. We would definitely stay there again and the host is very quick to respond and helpful.
