Great Uptown Location

  • 4 of 5

Very convenient for what we wanted to do in the area. We felt comfortable with our dog in this location with the walking path near by. The only thing we would add is more comfortable seating.

Good location but some quirks

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved this location close to stores and restaurants! Just be aware it's very bright at night (screens are thin) and there is heavy traffic, so light sleepers will have trouble. Cute place tho. A bit surprised there was no toaster and no nonstick pan. Be ready for managing radiators by opening windows (New York City style) and a gas cooktop/oven. All the charms of an older building with character. Would have explored more of the neighborhood but it was hovering around 0F during my stay.

Spiffy apartment in hip neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and our two big dogs loved staying at this ground floor apartment in Uptown. Faith, the owner, called us just before check-in time to make sure everything would go well and was very helpful. Her apartment is tidy, comfortable, and has all the amenities you would expect. Great vibe.

Two block walk to the Lake of the Isles path that was enjoyable even in the frigid winter. I bet it is even better in warmer months.

The Uptown neighborhood has good restaurants (Barbette is literally a block away and Libertine about 5 blocks away--the spots we tried and enjoyed) and great people watching.

We came to Minneapolis on a pilgrimage to Paisley Park but also enjoyed the Walker Art Museum, and great bars and restaurants. Parlour--best bar, 112 Eatery--best restaurant, Norseman--best distillery.

Great place & location

  • 4 of 5

First impression: The building is not a "brownstone" in the East Coast tradition, more of a brown brick apartment building of maybe 24 units & not so impressive on the outside. But the apartment itself is stylish, calm, casual chic, well equipped, and worked perfectly for our five-day stay. My husband and I were back for a gathering of my enormous family, and this was the perfect place for the two of us to escape and recharge. Lake Calhoun is a couple blocks away and a wonderful 50-60 minute walk around the paved path with views of the downtown skyline. The seasonal canoe/kayak/paddleboard rentals weren't available but many locals play at the lakes on a daily basis. I grew up near Lake Nokomis & hanging out at the city lakes and Minnehaha Falls are my fondest memories.

The apartment is on a fairly busy street. It didn't bother us. We live in a similar urban residential area in Portland, OR. I travel with earplugs and used them. Halloween parties and a midnight showing of Rocky Horror nearby made for some fun people watching. Seriously wish we'd gone to RHPS

We've stayed in VRBO in the USA & Europe and much prefer them to hotels for any 3+ day visits.This is definitely a lived-in apartment as opposed to the sterile investment-type rental. That means the owners' photos, chachkies, and clothes might be around. She made plenty of space for our things in the very large closet which was much appreciated. The kitchen is very well equipped. Though we mostly ate out, it was great to have a place for simple meals & snacks. I think someone else mentioned the uncomfortable counter stools. I'm 5'8 & a fairly slender size six and, literally, could not sit in them except at a very odd angle. (Now everyone's going to try the Cinderella Tush Test.) We used the dining chairs.

One thing to keep in mind; the shower is in the clawfoot type bathtub so you have to step up and into it and it was a bit slippery. Probably not ideal for anyone with mobility issues but we had no problems. We also were glad to have the washer/dryer so we could pack light.

Having a lockbox instead of meeting the owner was very convenient. (Once in France, our train broke down & we felt awful that the VRBO waited for hours for us.) Having a parking spot was excellent; street parking would be challenging.

Highly recommend. I may never crash at a Minneapolis relative's house again.

Comfortable and very accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. Everything was walking distance, restaurants, groceries, lakes, bike rentals. It had an extreme homey feeling with all the amenities of home. It was nice to have the personal parking spot (for free). Remember it is in the city so you do have some city noise but not excessive. I travel to Minnesota for business and will definitely stay again. It beats a hotel!

Fantastic Location & Space!

  • 4 of 5

This VRBO is fantastic. Absolutely perfect location (walking distance to shops, restaurants and Lake Calhoun). The owner keeps the space very clean and organized, and it gets wonderful light. Check in and check out was very easy. The only reason I can't give it the full 5 stars is because the street it's on is very noisy from cars. This is not at the fault of the owner, and it's a price to pay for being in a great location, but it did make it difficult to sleep at night. Otherwise, absolutely no complaints! Would stay here again, even with the street/car noise! Thanks, Faith!
