About The Owner

We own several properties in the Twin Cities area, and we have been property managers for over ten years. Some have always been requested on a short term basis, and we decided to take the plunge and provide short term rentals for vacationers, professionals and others needing clean, safe and friendly accommodations. We have traveled quite a bit ourselves, and have always been the types to prefer off the beaten path and unique accommodations. We strive to give each of our units a special touch, to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. We try to provide exceptional customer service, and deal with any challenge as fast as we can.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Why The Owner chose Minnesota

We have lived in the other buildings that we rent units in. We bought this building while in the middle of remodeling another we were in, so never got around to moving into it! However the siren song of the building is always there for us, because of the incredible convenience. It is simply our most convenient and 'walk-able' and 'bus-able' space, bar none! However it is close to the excellent Minneapolis Freeway system, also.

What makes this apartment unique

Walk to almost everything! Bus to all the rest!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want you to know that we appreciate everything you did and provided to make our stay pleasant. There were many things, such as paper towels, an iron, lots of hangers in the closet, plenty of pillows and blankets, and many little things that can be major if you are without. It was fun to get acquainted with the NE side of the city. As I mentioned before, we really appreciated the other tenants, who were very nice and easy to co-exist with. It was a fun experience. Now back to the real world. Barb

Our Response:

Thanks so much for staying with us! It was a pleasure hosting you. We hope we will be able to help you out in the future. Please give us a call when you want to visit.
