About Elizabeth and Rudolf

We've loved and restored this unique duplex over many years. Elizabeth's a Minneapolis native but a St. Paul convert. Rudolf who hails from the Netherlands, loves the city of St. Paul especially its topography with many hills and vistas. It's a great city for walking and exploring.

Elizabeth and Rudolf purchased this condo in 1995

Why Elizabeth and Rudolf chose Minnesota

As avid travelers, we love well-appointed, clean and comfortable hotels and vacation rentals. We hope you'll love ours too! It's well located one block off of Grand Avenue in the heart of the Summit Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. It's walking or biking distance to a multitude of unique restaurants and shops and less than 10 minutes to downtown St. Paul.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location! Besides that, our guests have loved the peacefulness of the space. Our wall colors were professionally chosen to create a serene environment. From the separate, private entrance with the screened-in front porch to the light-filled, spacious rooms, updated kitchen and baths, we invite you to make this your next home away from home when in the Twin Cities.

Charming and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this charming, well equipped home. The location was walking distance from dozens of restaurants and shopping establishments. Our children were just minutes away thanks to Ayd Mill Roads access to I35 South. Our two month stay flew by. The owners were great to live next to.

We will definitely consider staying here again.

Great place to stay short term or long term

  • 5 of 5

We were in St. Paul for a family get together and this was the perfect place to stay for six days. It's a very comfortable two-story, two-bedroom duplex. The hosts have upgraded the kitchen and bathrooms but kept the fell of an older home. We loved being in a historic St. Paul home and the location near shopping (Bibelot is a favorite) and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this rental. Thank you!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our weekend spent at this property. It was very clean, comfortable and inviting. Beds were super comfy. Elizabeth, our hostess, was very helpful in making sure my 85 year old Mom was comfortable. My Mom really appreciated the lift that goes up to the second floor. :). We are hoping to be able to stay here again.

Welcome to St. Paul! Voted by USA Today as the 'Best Romantic North American Getaway for 2014', you will love exploring our romantic capital city from your perfectly located vacation home. We're located in Summit Hill, a cozy, walkable neighborhood of beautiful historic homes, colleges, restaurants and unique shopping. Your vacation rental is on a picturesque cul-de-sac but just one block off of bustling Grand Avenue, home to many of the best shopping and dining establishments St. Paul has to offer. You can easily spend your time wandering the immediate neighborhood with its shops, restaurants and historic homes but we're also conveniently located close to downtown St. Paul which is a ten minute bus ride or five minutes by car. (It's also a great walking or biking destination: it's down hill but you can always catch the bus to get back home!) Downtown St. Paul is situated on the Mississippi River and has many beautiful historic areas and also great dining,entertainment and a year round Farmer's Market. In the summer months, you can take a tour of the Mississippi on a paddle boat. In the winter, partake in the Winter Carnival's many events or go ice skating outside at Landmark Center. The Xcel Center (Home of the Wild hockey team and concerts) the Landmark Center, the Ordway (Home of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Minnesota Opera) are all located downtown. We're also close to many colleges: Macalester, William Mitchell College of Law, St. Thomas, St. Catherine's, Hamline and Concordia are all within a ten minute drive. The University of Minnesota campuses are also easy to get to either via the scenic river road or via the freeway. Freeway access is equally easy: we are 1.5 miles to Interstate 94 and less than a mile to 35E. Our new light rail line running between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul is close by. There is a bike rental kiosk one block away in front of our closest supermarket, Kowalski's. If you'd like to explore our twin city, Minneapolis, it's also a short drive or bike ride away where you will find more great shopping, the Walker Art Center, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Twins Stadium. The Mall of America is a short 15 minute drive with free parking. We're also close to golf courses, public tennis courts, parks and lakes. Of course, we're also a fantastic stop before or after heading up north to cabin country or the BWCA!
