Why Salle McDaniel chose Minneapolis

I fell in love with this buildings classic and quality 'bones' I bought it in 2005 and spent the next three years transforming back to it's former state of grace with a few modern touches.

What makes this condo unique

My clients tell me over and over that I have 'hit the nail on the head with the restful, comfortable decor. This will be way more homelike than a hotel and quiet. Plus it has a fully equipped kitchen and is pet friendly.

Beautiful building, perfect location for exploring the lakes!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is perfect in every way. Communication with the owner was effortless. We were traveling with a dog and were welcomed with open arms. The apartment is so beautiful, in an old brownstone building, and has beautiful wood floors and original woodwork. We were in a garden unit, in the heat of summer, and the apartment was cool and comfy! There is an evaporative cooler in the living room and an air conditioner in one bedroom, and between these two devices and a small fan that was in the unit, we were never uncomfortable, even when the humidity and temperature outside reached over 90 degrees. The neighbors are amazing, and there is an adorable boxer who lives there who is so friendly and sweet that I just wanted to take her home with me!!! It's only a few miles to Lakes Nokomis and Hiawatha, and we spent countless hours walking the trails along the Grand Rounds Scenic Byways, Mississippi River, and Minnehaha Falls. My son goes to the U and the apartment is about 7 minutes from the West Bank. We had no trouble getting to our favorite restaurant, French Meadow on Lyndale. This apartment exceeded our needs and the next time I'm in Minneapolis, I will rent from Salle again. Thank you, Salle, for offering this lovely apartment. It is perfect in every way.

Nice Apartment with a few caveots

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in two of Salle's apartments for the better part of 3 weeks with our two children. Overall the experience was good. The apartment is very nice and convenient. The street itself if nice as well but there are parts of the neighborhood that can be a bit hit-or-miss.

We also had some issue with the air conditioning. The bedroom unit worked but was so loud it was very hard to sleep and the living room unit was pushing out hot air. Salle was very responsive (generally and to my email about this) but recommended we consult the instruction booklet since it was a new unit. All was in order but luckily the weather cooled down so we did not have to try the unit again. On the one very hot day we were there the place was uncomfortably warm.

So my review is overall positive but I would agree that the air conditioner is not fully functioning.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay. Photos were accurate. Neighbors in building were quiet. We felt safe. We enjoyed having the use of the kitchen and a garage. Owner was helpful in answering our questions.

Easy access into the city. Nice restaurants within 14 min. of driving. We recommend Barbette on Lake Street.

2 Bedroom, 2nd Floor Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We came to MInnesota for a long wedding weekend at the Edgehill Farm in Henderson MN, which was fantastic! After the wedding festivities wrapped, we came up to Minneapolis and stayed at this apartment for 2 nights. We didn't have too much time to explore the neighborhood which looked safe and pleasant. My friends and I enjoyed our stay, and think the apartment itself was pretty nice. I would have liked to have found an extra set of sheets because one of us wanted to sleep on the futon the first night (we used the cotton blankets we found in the linen cupboard). If I were going to stay longer I would want to take along odds and ends of useful things like: scissors, scotch tape, pens, pencils, books, playing cards, etc.. A larger capacity coffee maker would have been useful to us (all 4 of us are big coffee drinkers), and more than 1 ice cube tray could be handy. 2 more (than the 4 we found) dining chairs would be nice too. I had the darndest time opening the front door, but I think it was my failure to operate the key and keypad correctly. I probably shouldn't have rented this particular apartment simply because one of us is somewhat disabled, and she would have benefited by being on a 1st floor, but she did make it up and down okay. If navigating stairs is a problem, this might not be the apartment for you. The apartment was clean. The parking area behind the building was convenient. I'm glad to see that recycling is encouraged. Enjoyed great food at Marla's Caribbean Cuisine (medium-hot curried goat...yum), the Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub, Colossal Cafe, and Longfellow Grill. We visited Lock and Dam #1, and got to see the lock in action. We saw a flock of wild turkeys foraging near the Lock & Dam #1. We visited the Midtown Global Market, a unique gift shop, CorAzoN, and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. All in all a great but too brief couple of days in Minneapolis.This apartment was a comfortable place to rest our heads.

Great experience

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the unit for about four weeks while in Minneapolis. Salle has been responsive and pleasant and always ready to help. The apartment is just as advertised with all the amenities an individual of a family could ask for, spacious, clean and in great condition. Pretty design, too. Only down side is that it's in a half-basement level and therefore darker and less well ventilated than we would have liked. As for location - Target, Wallgreens etc. are within reasonable walking distance/short drive; the neighborhood itself isn't grand but felt safe and clean. Neighbors seemed friendly. Altogether it was a very positive experience and we would definitely rent again.

This area is urban and diverse. Very convenient to public transportation by bus or Light Rail Train. Very close to Downtown Minneapolis and the Uptown area. St Paul is also fairly accessible on highway 94 or Lake St/Marshall Ave. The Indoor Global market at 25th and Chicago is a fun place to get a wide variety of ethnic foods and sample cultural events. Powderhorn Park is five blocks away and boasts lots of room to romp and enjoy walks around the small lake. There are two major grocery stores and a Target store about 7 blocks away as well as a variety of coffee shops and small eateries. Convenient to several health care centers, the U of M and a short train ride to the Mall of America and the airport.
