Love the location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here multiple times during the summer while in transit to the Cities and in the process of house-hunting. We loved being able to go walking in Theodore Wirth Park every evening and yet it's a quick bus ride downtown for work and for play. Two bedrooms was just what we needed for our family and the price was outstanding. The landlord worked with us to make our dates work and was on hand to welcome us. Thanks so much!!

Overpriced for a Transition Neighborhood

  • 2 of 5

First, the good: the owner was great about keeping in touch, showing up when needed, etc. The apartment was clean, inside its own boundaries.

However, for us, the bad outweighed the good. This is one of six apartments in a very run down building - the common hallways are filthy; the outer doors need to be kept locked at all times. The best room in the apartment is the one in the main photo - the dining / living combination, though the bathroom was obviously new (and fine) also. The two bedrooms were dark, and the curtains were obviously not intended to be opened as the windows hadn't been cleaned for ... well, a very long time. The vrbo listing says parking in back and also on street, but when we got there, the owner was pretty emphatic that it would be a good idea to use the garage, not park outside - which did not inspire confidence for either parking or walking. That said, he did have a garage!

While the apartment is within 1-2 mi of both Wirth Park and the cute little center of Bryn Mawr, those blocks are not terribly welcoming to women walkers. It appears to be a neighborhood in transition - nice homes on all sides ... a few blocks away. Somehow, the offer of a canoe implied to us that this place was very near water itself; no. Our misunderstanding.

We would absolutely NOT recommend this property to most people, and certainly not at the listed price point - equivalent of any really nice hotel downtown.

Wonderfully comfortable and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this home for 6 weeks with my 2 children and we had a great time! It is in the perfect location to downtown, uptown, Wurth Park (right across the street!), and the freeways. It was very safe and so very comfortable! We didn't want to leave. The owner and his caretaker are so quick about responding. They were very sincere in wanting our stay to be perfect. The owner responded to e-mails even though he was traveling on the other side of the world! He even called me on my first night to make sure everything was okay. I would highly recommend staying here or at any one of his other properties.

Perfect place to stay in Minnesota

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip. Booking was easy and we had a great greeting when we arrived. It had all the amenities we like and was really convenient to where we had to be. The location is perfect for us and our family of 4 is planning to come back for another stay. Thanks for the great 8 days.
