About Stacey Johnson

I'm a house junkie still in rehabilitation........honestly just love old houses, new houses, house ideas, house design and construction. Past 10 years I have been involved in every facet of real estate and renovation, and love more than anything the transformation of homes and spaces. In every house there's a beautiful home wanting to emerge! This in combination with hospitality is a perfect fit for me......the creation of an experience! I hope you 'feel'- cozy, warm, welcome, and at peace when you stay at one of my vacation rentals.

Stacey Johnson purchased this condo in 2012

What makes this condo unique

The location of this unit is so ideal. It allows one to ditch the car and just walk to the best of St. Paul - Grand Ave and it's fun shops, restaurants, and bars. Or head down Summit Ave and gawk at hundreds of some of the most amazing architectural homes in the US. Also right in the neighborhood is the Cathedral of St. Paul; something simply astonishing to see. Just a bit further but still walkable is the Capitol, another amazing architectural feat. For a more livelier walk you can head downtown and take in more restaurants, theatres, and possibly a concert at the Excel Center. It truly is the epicenter of fun!

Even better than what the pictures show!

  • 5 of 5

For a week in June, we were in town to celebrate a family milestone. Throughout the reservation process, the owner (Stacey) was very responsive to our questions, provided local pointers, and offered suggestions. We rented the lower unit of this house. For check-in, Stacey met us at the house for a quick tour. Our immediate impression was “this rental is even nicer in person than it appeared in the photos!” Charming, clean, efficient, comfortable and located in a neighborhood we really enjoyed walking around each day. The architectural interest of the surrounding historic homes is amazing. We really enjoyed ending each day with a relaxing sit on the front porch. Although the porch area is also available to the upstairs unit, we never saw anyone else around. Without hesitation, this may be our go-to place for future visits to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

A grand stay on the Grand Hill

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time in this lovely home in an historic district. Last time it was winter, this time springtime. Both seasons were enjoyable. So much to see and do in the area...History Theatre, James Hill house, fine food at Forepaugh restaurant and a nightcap at the historic Commordore. And coming home to my house on the hill.

*Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both this unit and the upstairs for a family gathering. Both units were even roomier than they appeared in the photos. The beds were comfortable, the furnishings were attractive and functional. The neighborhood is beautiful and very pleasant to walk in. It was especially nice to be able to sit out on the veranda in the afternoon and evening. Stacey is a fabulous host; she was attentive to our every need. *

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with my daughter for the weekend while in town for a dance event. The location is fabulous, in a quiet neighborhood close to bars, restaurants, shops, and a nice grocery store. It was no problem getting parking on the street right in front of the house. The unit was clean and well appointed. And Stacey checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay again when we are in town.

The Summit Hill area is one of the nation's premier collections/concentration of turn of the century mansions and architecture. Less than one block away on Summit Ave is F. Scott Fitzgerald's brownstone he lived in during several of his writing years. James J. Hill mansion is a must see and is walking distance from VRBO unit. Over 14,000 sqft. of splendid finishes and design. Nina's coffee house is a nice walk for a cup of local coffee and people watching; it is in another magnificent building that won't disappoint.
