Location is Outstanding! Best in the Twin Cities - noisy though

  • 4 of 5

Overall we have positives feedback on the space and working with the property manager. The best thing about the unit is the location. It’s awesome that there is a parking spot available, especially once winter starts. In the summer, this place would be a rock star spot. It’s nearby two of the best lakes (Isles and Calhoun), it’s 1/2 block from a grocery store, and the restaurants and shopping in the area are great. The unit allows dogs, which is helpful and appreciated. There is ample area to walk your dog as well.

The biggest negative is the noise. Although the main level unit is an awesome spot in the city, it’s at the worst spot for noise. It was too bad the unit wasn’t on the other side of the building. It’s an old building which is fun for character, terrible for noise protection. It’s right on a main road so morning traffic is loud and drunk people at night walking home from the bars can be annoying. People in the building are really rude with slamming the front door too. You can only hear that if you’re in the living room, not really from the bedroom.

The unit itself was overall nice. Not a big space, but we’ll decorated. There was a few maintenance issues when we were there, but the property manager was responsive.

Overall we would stay there again if in the area. We just couldn’t give it five stars because of noise, which isn’t in their control. The spot faces a very busy street, it is what it is. If you like walkability though, this is perfect!

We stayed at this wonderful location for two weeks and enjoyed the comforts and cleanliness that Faith has provided. She was very responsive any time we needed anything and I am looking forward to another stay here.

Great secret "getaway" from the Family spot

  • 5 of 5

Not nice to say but we all know it, didn't want to stay with family this year so tried this out and it was Fabulous! Very very warm and roomy and stocked with all you need. The apartment is super great, outside great, safe and active and the location...can't go wrong. Everything is within walking distance. This year the entire family embarked on us for once and all complimented our selection. Faith is great and available for any stupid question you will have because you didn't read her very well detailed email thingy. Jameya and Jolene will stay there next year if she'll have us :) Faith, Thank you!

Perfect place in Uptown!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this perfect apartment. Close to everything, with Lunds & Byerly grocery store across the street. You don't need a car. Uptown art fair was half a block away and this time we rented bikes from Nice ride and pedaled around the lakes and on the midtown greenway. We love Minneapolis and Faith's place adds to the experience. We plan to go back soon. Thank you.

Charming apartment in amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Staying right in the Uptown neighborhood just two blocks from Lake Calhoun will make you feel like a local! I stayed here for two weeks in July and never ran out of things to do...renting bikes, running the lakes, going to the theater, walking to the Walker. This apartment's incredible location meant I didn't even need a car. And the apartment is adorable! It is much more spacious than in the pictures. The dining room table is a great place to read and write, the kitchen is well stocked, the bed is super comfortable, and the whole place is filled with natural light and historic touches like wooden floors. Sure, there's street noise at night - that's part of living in a city! I am checking out this morning, and am so sorry to leave!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The overall property was just as advertised. It was in a great location near to everything we wanted like the bike trail and restaurants. We evan had the benefit of the Bastille Day block party right across the street on July 16. I will definitely book this property the next time I'm up visiting family. Thanks Faith
