About Scott and Jenna

Scott & Jenna are travelers. Although the wanderlust has lessened somewhat lately, we very much enjoy helping others make the most of their visits to Minneapolis, St. Paul and Minnesota.

We like contrasts, Jenna loves food that wakes up your taste buds and Scott thinks cream of mushroom soup is a little spicy!

We especially enjoy the cultural scene in the Twin Cities area. More people per capita attend plays here than Manhattan! The music scene is always lively.

Jenna has worked as a property manager for other firms in the past, including taking care of the innards of skyscrapers... our properties are tame by comparison! Scott has been in the technology industry for a couple of decades, he is always happy to talk tech.

If you want to learn more about the area, we are happy to help. But we will never be intrusive.

Scott and Jenna purchased this bungalow in 1999

Why Scott and Jenna chose Minnesota

We purchased this building because of its' incredibly convenient location. You can get anywhere fast, on highways or using public transportation. And lakes and parks are very close. It is in the middle of all the shopping in the Twin Cities, too! :-)

What makes this bungalow unique

Our location is incredibly convenient which helps you make your stay more pleasant. We are just a few blocks from a coffee shops. We also have two convenience stores, 24 hour fitness, stylist, pizza carry out, etc. More than one of our guests has walked or biked the trail that starts a few blocks away to Lake Calhoun, rented a kayak or canoe, and walked back. No matter how you want to get around, our location offers convenience.

Not what it appeared!

  • 2 of 5

This was a last minute booking as there was a problem with original booking made in January and cancelled two weeks prior to trip. Upon arrival curb appeal was not good; grass needed mowing and patios weeding. As we typically do with rental cars we did here (take pictures). Carpet dirty, TV didn't work well, one sleep number bed deflated and dirty dishes in cupboard. Space is over priced; could need some TLC! Loved the area it was close to great stores etc.

Owner's Response: This review is unclear on some points. 1. We did not cancel the prior booking that this traveler mentions. We accommodated them, as they said, last minute. 2. Regarding grass and weeds, National Weather Service records show it rained on _six_ of the prior ten days. We have a lawn service, they simply got behind. 3. Regarding "carpet dirty", the unit rented has hardwood floors. If the guest was unhappy with the rugs that are used in some places, we could have replaced same day / next day from inventory. 4. If the guest did not know how to operate the TV and cable remotes, we would have been happy to give instruction. Our video at that location is complex, we offer a hundred or so channels of Comcast Cable, along with Digital Video Recorder functionality. 5. If the Television was malfunctioning, we have spares we could have brought over same or next day. 6. Regarding deflating sleep number, the usual cause is operator error, or a guest disconnecting the pump in order to plug in a phone charger. We do not recall a problem with a bed there (we were certainly not informed of it while the guest was there); again we have spares for everything and can fix in an hour or next day at the latest. 7. Dirty dishes are inexcusable, but occasionally a guest may stack dishes straight from the dishwasher and some will not be clean. Our apologies. 8. We are sorry this guest feels the space was overpriced, however our other guests have not complained. We had five other families in that unit that month. 9. Last and most important, our order summary information for all guests includes: "And of course call at _any_ time -- Emergencies after 10 or before 8, please! :-) Treat us like the front desk of the hotel, not absentee owners. We are happy to help!" The first communication we received from the guest about any of these challenges was an email time stamped 24 minutes after departure time on the day of departure. Our goal is to provide superior service, and after four years providing vacation and short term rentals, we have had over 1,330 families and groups who were happy with our two dozen-plus spaces. In some cases, that was because we were given the opportunity to correct a challenge, which was not the case here.

Great stay - very accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Scott and Jenna did an amazing job accommodating me for a last-minute stay. I am fragrance-sensitive, and they made sure the linens were washed in a fragrance-free detergent as well as opened windows in the house for me before my arrival. I also arrived late evening, and Scott kindly was waiting for me with his vehicle hazard lights turned on. It made finding the house a breeze!

The bed was very comfortable (a Sleep Number bed), and it was much quieter in the house than I expected given that its in a neighborhood with lots going on nearby - I slept great!

I was so thankful for these two hosts, and so appreciative that they went out of their way for me. I would definitely recommend them and their properties to friends.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I got to rent out this townhome for my last birthday. Had a few close friends over for the 2 nights that I rented! We had a great time! The beds were super comfy! There was gas stations & lots of other stores near by. Spent some time at the bar Bunny's down the road! Great food & drinks, & walking distance! Both S&J were WONDERFUL people to rent from! I had an awesome experience renting their beautiful house for the weekend, they were very kind & warming to letting me stay also! Great people! Great time! Great birthday all around! I would love to return, maybe for my next years birthday :)

Thanks so much to both of your! You guys were great!

-Rachel!

Quiet Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure to stay in this freshly remodeled bungalow. The entire unit has been freshly painted from top to bottom and is comfortably furnished with sleeping for 9 or more! The location has easy access to Highway 100 and numerous

restaurants and shopping less than 5 minutes away. I was pleased by how quiet the stay was, and the in unit laundry was a real plus. I look forward to staying at this location again, it would be a great place for a girls weekend sewing or scrapping, or for a week of touring and shopping with family or friends. Thanks for a great stay, I will definitely visit again.
