Como House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

A full renovation of this fabulous 1920’s home in the heart of Minneapolis was completed in March 2012.

This 4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom home features a queen size bed in every bedroom, an additional single size bed in one of the bedrooms and room for one on the sofa (or cot if preferred). As owners of 4 other VRBO vacation rentals in the area, we have a reputation for providing quality accommodations that are SUPER clean! Plus we live in the neighborhood making it very convenient for you in case you need something that isn’t already provided. Do you need a Pak’n’Play? Don’t worry, we have it! Do you need extra chairs for friends coming over for brunch? Don’t worry, we have you covered there too! What about extra cooking utensils because you are having a BBQ?? Yup, no worries there either.

This is your perfect home away from home featuring old world charm with modern amenities. Our kitchen features stainless steel appliances with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer with filtered water & ice maker, range and microwave. The plush carpet in the lower level (basement) makes it feel so cozy & washer and dryer are provided as well. The backyard features a great patio with a charcoal grill.

About Angie Toomey

We have been renovating homes since 2002 and started renting some of the homes as vacation rentals in 2007. Having utilized VRBO and vacation rentals on our vacations, we decided to give it a go and quickly became the pioneers of vacation rentals in the Minneapolis area.

Angie Toomey purchased this house in 2011

Why Angie Toomey chose Minneapolis

This is one of the most convenient neighborhoods in Minneapolis for out of town guests to stay in while visiting the Twin Cities for play, business or other needs. We also rent homes to students at the University of Minnesota as we are Gopher Alumni!

What makes this house unique

Clean and Quality at a reasonable price!

Great location, clean and well-managed property

  • 4 of 5

The property worked great for a place for multiple family members to stay near our house on Como Avenue. The house was clean and great sleeping arrangements. The house is well-located for where we live and access to Como Lake, downtown Minneapolis (things to do in both cities). Wasn't the best set up for our large group to cook there but fine for easy breakfast. Would stay there again.

Exactly as described

The location was perfect for our weekend and the house was just as described. It worked for 7 adult women just perfectly and Angie is a super responsive owner! Good times.

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at this property. The first night we left the windows open and those in the back bedrooms were very aware of the frequent trains. The next 2 nights we kept the windows closed and it was much better. Angie left a pack-n-play for us and it was great for our 4 month old. This is definitely a college neighborhood but it was quiet and within walking distance to several restaurants and a delicious waffle bar.

Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

House exactly as described, in a quiet neighbourhood. My family enjoyed our time there, owner answered any queries we had promptly.

We had travelled from England and it was great to be able to relax in this lovely home.

We shopped at Lunds grocery store a short walk away but well worth it.

A pleasure to rent from this owner, I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to explore the Twin Cities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Alan! We are always excited to have you and your family back and that you have the opportunity to experience a different rental each year! I think you have now been to all of them! My only regret is that I wasn't able to see you guys this year and last - but Matt made sure to rub it in that he & Harley had the pleasure. Hope to see you next year! Angie

Bachelorette Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome for our bachelorette party. The house was very clean and in a quiet neighborhood. The train runs frequently but was not disrupted to us in the least.

Angie was very helpful and wonderful to work with. I would recommend this property to others looking for a house to stay in while in Minnesota or for an event such as ours.
