I grew up on the St. Croix River, and found nothing better than a view of the river and enjoying all the activities that come along with the river.

Close to anything and everything you could want ... Restaurants, bars, parks, and 5 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. Also plenty of privacy and beauty of the Mississippi river.
I am the owner of a small business and a couple of my staff members and I were coming to Minneapolis for an expo. To save a little cash, I decided to use VRBO and happened upon this residence, which seemed like a fair deal and it WOULD have saved us about $10/person/night versus a hotel in the area. With three people, it should have been a decent savings. Great idea, right? Wellllll...here's the rest of the story.
We're not picky people and we just needed a place to stay. So, I didn't complain about the view, which overlooks not just the river but also a noisy concrete plant. It's obviously not in the description and you can't see it in the pictures, for obvious marketing reasons. I didn't complain about the front door appearing to have been spray painted by an amateur. Or, the several malfunctioning latches, locks and handles that are sticking, jammed, or falling off. Or, the broken blender. Or, the grill being out of gas.
Then, the wind apparently blew the screen door open and broke the automatic shutting mechanism bracket away from the door. Keep in mind, AUTOMATIC shutting mechanism! First, I'm not certain this happened during our stay. As aforementioned, there were several things related to the doors which were broken, jammed or malfunctioning. Second, the owner accused us of not properly latching the door, which allowed the wind to blow the door open and break this bracket. Now, I'm an engineer and I consider myself a pretty reasonable person. If I or any one of my staff broke something from mishandling or aggressive behavior, of course I would expect to take responsibility for it. That said, if the door was properly maintained, the AUTO shutting and latching mechanisms would have ensured the wind could not blow the door open. So, regardless of when the door broke, it has nothing to do with the user and I was quite surprised to learn how easy it is for an owner to hold your deposit. Take a couple pics of broken stuff and voilà.
I was as polite about the condition of the property and this situation as possible. I really don't have the time to be chasing silly garbage like this. Buyers should be wary of this property and owner. Whether intentionally or by ignorance, I believe this owner to be pushing the responsibility of maintenance on to her customers. I have filed a complaint with VRBO and am awaiting their response. The hotline seems to go to a call center abroad, so I'm guessing that'll go no where.
We were in Minneapolis for the USA Cup soccer tournament. We enjoyed every minute spent at the condo. We used the deck every morning with coffee and every night for the sunsets. I would definitely recommend Beth's condo to anyone who asked. It was so spacious and clean.
My friends and I stayed here for my bday/ bachelorette party last weekend. This place is huge and has tons of room. The pictures do not do it justice. Very clean and great parking. I would give this location 10 stars if possible. For my next trip to MPLS I would love to stay here again. Thanks so much Beth!
This lovely condo on the river had everything this group of 5 women could ask for. Easy to drive to downtown or Uptown, and right in the heart of "Nordeast." Within walking distance of two restaurants (more if you really like to walk), and right on the edge of the river - in fact, you can walk right down to the little beach at the edge. Owner was very accessible and promptly repaired a sliding screen door when asked. Parking for 2 cars. Would highly recommend this home.
Overall, a very nice location. Near Downtown, yet far enough away. Located right on the water with plenty of space. The location was within walking distance to a couple of restaurants and bars, in addition to a terrific coffee shop. Ample kitchen and lovely outside seating areas. My only issue would be the limited channel selection on the DirectTV (no ESPN) but that is just my preference. Thanks for the hospitality! Hopefully we will return in the future.
This property has a good location, great view, and kept up well. Just buy your groceries and you will feel like it's home. Good amenities and great parking. This is a great location that is close to the city but without the hassles involved with staying in it, like parking and basic shopping needs.
