Great location for college roommate annual reunion of 8. Plenty of beds, great layout for lounging.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this rental if you want to walk and enjoy many of the restaurants and nightlife available in Northeast Minneapolis or take a short trip over the bridge into downtown.

We had 8 stay but had room for a couple more. Saturday took advantage of the Aveda Institute being a 5 minute walk away and had 6 of us get facials (book 6 weeks ahead in order to get in!) while 2 found a yoga class a couple blocks away. We fit 4 parking in the driveway and others easily found street parking after the nearby school was out for the day. Park across the street was awesome green space and let tons of light in.

Check-in was easy, nice the owners check ids to make sure who is there is who is supposed to be. House was clean and kitchen well stocked, our food and drink fit nicely in the full sized fridge/freezer.

The cleaning fee seemed a bit heaftier than other VRBOs, but it was nice to just do the dishes and take out the trash instead of getting into laundering sheets and towels all morning before checking out.

Whether you are from out of town or planning a stay cation in the twin cities, this is an awesome choice of rentals for a large group. Not the cheapest you will find, but split it amongst your group members and you'll be glad you chose it in the end.

Walking distance to downtown attractions!

  • 4 of 5

There were 4 couples and 1 single person staying at this home and we found it clean, modern, and comfortable. The upstairs shower has great water pressure. This house is walking distance to several downtown restaurants, a grocery store, and a liquor store. We also walked across the Stone Arch Bridge to the Farmer's Market, museums, and the football stadium.

Worked well for family group of 3 generations under 1 roof

  • 5 of 5

The Toomey's house was perfect for our family visit which included three generations. The house was clean, light-filled, and roomy. Our two cars easily fit in the parking space on the side of the house. The grandparents used the bedroom on the first floor, while the grandchildren and their parents used the bedrooms upstairs. It was so nice to have a full bathroom on the first floor as well as the second level. The house is on a tree-lined street directly across from a park. The park was well used by the grandchildren, and had slides, swings and climbing platforms appropriate for the 3-year old as well as the 7-year old. The kitchen had a generous supply of plates, glasses, cooking utensils, etc. All of the appliances and wifi worked. There is a picnic table in the yard which was especially nice to sit at for morning coffee. We didn't cook too much, but we found the pharmacy/grocery store, Lunds on University Avenue, to have lots of fresh food, bakery, meats, and a deli bar with good selections. Caribou Coffee is located there,too. We walked to Hennepin Ave and had a wonderful time eating in the outdoor patio space at Punch Pizza (worked very well with small children). I really appreciated how quickly the Toomeys responded to our emails.

Neat, clean, and well located

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed for a weekend with friends. Five of us stayed in the house (5 bedrooms) and it worked out great. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had basic cooking utensils, there were plenty of glasses, china, and silverware, and there were lots of towels. The living room and dining area with the open kitchen proved to be perfect gathering spots, and the good news was that the conversation from downstairs didn't travel upstairs to bother those who were still sleeping. There isn't really much of a yard, so if you're planning to hang out outside, this isn't the house for you.

The location of the house is great. It was easy to get onto highways and around the city. Better still, there is a nice shopping area with a grocery store, liquor store, etc. just two blocks away. Also, there is a public bike sharing station two blocks away and this proved invaluable. We rode bikes as much as we drove! The river and associated walking/biking paths are also just a few blocks away, for those who like to get outside to exercise.

Angie was very helpful answering questions, too.

We all agreed that we would definitely stay at this house again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Julianne for the wonderful review of your experience at our Vacation Rental. While this home has a rather small yard, just across the street is a very large park with tons of space for games, tossing a frisbee, etc --- but if you desire more of a private yard next time, please let me know and we have a house very similar to this one with a backyard surrounded by a privacy fence!! Thanks again and please come back any time! Best, Angie, Matt & the Crew

Nicely updated, owners were great

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! It was nicely updated, and the owners responded quickly and were very kind. The parking there is a huge bonus, as many places in town only have street parking. There is a nice park right across the street which was great for our kids. It's near the University, so there are lots of little bars and restaurants you can easily walk to. It's also a very quick drive to get downtown for dining and bars. Easy access to the expressways to get to the malls, zoos, etc. I would stay here again for sure.
