About DeAnna

We are emtpy nesters who love to meet new people and see new places! While we live in the upper level, we value your privacy. Our entrances and driveway are on the opposite side of the house. You will not see us except by request or during lawn care or snow removal.

DeAnna purchased this house in 2016

Why DeAnna chose St Paul

I am a hotel manager who saw how difficult stays of more than two days can be for guests. Very little private space, little to no kitchen and very few comforts of home.

Home Again was the result of years of hotel management experience. Private, spacious and modern with all the comforts of home, there is no better option for your stay in the Twin Cities!

What makes this house unique

Our location allows you to be close to all the wonderful things Minneapolis and St Paul have to offer as well as steps from public transit, while keeping you in a quiet family neighborhood.

Exceptional! Comfortable! Beautiful! Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

I really don't know where to start! This place is Beyond any hotel we have stayed at! Owner Deanna has thought of Every Detail! Quiet, secluded, comfortable. Home is on a beatiful lot butting up to woods with walking trail...Gourmet kitchen stocked with anything you may need! I mentioned a juicer and Deanna went out of her way to have one available for me! We will be booking this home again when we come back to MN to visit our grandchildren! Deanna went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable! She also makes the BEST jam! Thank you Deanna for Everything you are the BEST!!! <3

A Rare Jewel in St Paul

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to stay in owners home’s through Home-away as opposed to staying in hotels whenever we travel. Deanna and Jeff’s home is a classic example of how well this strategy works. They were very caring and understanding hosts and they did everything possible to make us and our dog, feel welcome and comfortable.

The home looks newly remodeled and is classically upscale with beautiful granite and tile work. The kitchen is modern, efficient, spacious and provides lots of natural light to brighten your day. Deanna also provides you with a basic amount of supplies and basic food items to help you rapidly fit in upon your arrival.

The living room is spacious and it is comfortable to snuggle by their large natural fireplace. You have access to a fully functional laundry room, a beautiful study, in case you are attending classes at an area college, the bedroom is large, with a very comfortable bed, soft linens, and restful pillows. There is plenty of closet space too.

The bathroom is quite large and includes a gorgeous two person tile shower with a full glass door.

There is adequate offstreet parking for two cars and there are plenty of shopping opportunities within a very short drive of their home.

I believe what makes this place truly special other than the quality and thoughtful amenities, are the owners ensuring that their guests are comfortable and feel welcome at all times. This was very much appreciated!

Loved our stay, our hosts were very accommodating and attentive. I was able to finish last minute holiday baking in the beautiful kitchen, and wrap presents just like I was in my own home. Looking forward to staying there again.

We were so impressed with this beyond five star home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We are so grateful to Deanna and Jeff for truely making our Home Away from home our home for eight days! We were welcomed into their rental with a level of hospitality far exceeding our expectations or what we had hoped it would be. So many personal touches of thoughtful food staples and unexpected personal items greated us! The homemade ginger peach jam put smiles on our faces right away! The cleanliness and attention to orderly arrangement of clean, good quality kitchen items, toiletries, cleaning utensils, and laundry supplies made life an easy flow and spoke clearly of their desire for a stress free, warmly welcoming time in their rental. Jeff and Deanna are warm outgoing organized people. Very few needs prompted a call to them, which was readily answered or returned, always reassuring us of their availability to help us if needed. We loved our evening fires, with the Duraflame logs provided...very cozy in the nature embracing fall atmosphere! We enjoyed the open large window design of the rental, bringing the outside inside, embellishing us in nature.... trees, beautiful walking paths outside the door, birds, squirrels and two beautiful deer who stopped by as if to say “hello”. Being seasoned seniors, we felt safe in this home location wise, structure wise (only one step outside all one level inside) and with availability of emergency services as well as the comfort of Jeff and Deanna being close at hand! We hope to return to this Home Away from home soon! Thank you Deanna and Jeff! We are so grateful to both of you for such a lovely time. See you soon! Linda and Peanuts

Wonderful Three-Week Stay Adjacent to Beautiful Tree-Lined Pathway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this duplex in East St. Paul. The rental is located in a quiet neighborhood of primarily single-family homes and is adjacent to a tree-lined bike and foot pathway that is part of the St. Paul parks system.

We had a chance to see the many maples, oaks, and cottonwoods at the height of their fall colors out our big windows and as we walked our dog in the neighborhood and along the pathway. The duplex is conveniently located near a major St. Paul street but also at the end of California Avenue which is only a block or two long so the traffic and noise are almost non-existent.

The duplex is well furnished with modern appliances. The kitchen, recently upgraded, features granite counter tops and abundant cabinet space. It also was stocked with many thoughtful touches -- eggs, butter, DeAnna's homemade jam, a variety of coffee and teas, and other treats. We had at least 10 visitors during the time we stayed at this duplex and every one of them remarked on how nice and spacious the place was. Our dog also loved basking in the sun on the little rug by the glass front door.

Most importantly, DeAnna and her husband Jeff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. If their assistance was needed, one of them would come quickly, armed with a treat which of course won over our dog.

We look forward to returning next fall! Thank you, DeAnna and Jeff!
