Clean and had everything we needed onsite

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room to each have our own space during girls weekend. Most necessities on site. There is a binder of info that was super helpful on things in the area. The multi-phone charger was helpful too.

We were all impressed in the comfort of the beds and the bedding! Plenty of street parking. Great and prompt communication when we needed to talk with the owners.

Very lovely home, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a few days while house hunting all over the city. The location was convenient and the house was very comfortable. More than enough space for four adults and a toddler, tastefully decorated and cozy in the cold winter weather. Keep in mind that there's only one shower/tub in the house, but otherwise good for larger groups. Plan to pack your own toiletries and buy extra paper goods. Owners were very responsive and easy to work with. Nice stay!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The house was very clean, warm, and cozy, even with below zero temperatures outside. Nicely remodeled inside and lots of beds/bedrooms, which was perfect for our family. We also really appreciated the ease of the keyless entry system.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful, comfortable, and had everything we needed during our stay in Minneapolis. My friends and I were in town for a football game and didn't want to be spread out across a hotel. We loved being in the same area and made our vacation so much fun. We were so impressed with the look and feel of the home!!
