Dirk and Marilyn made us feel welcome right away with smiles and warmth. They were polite and helpful but gave us plenty of space and autonomy in their home. The blue room was very clean and comfortable. We had plenty of room for suitcases and miscellaneous bags, etc and the room had everything we needed. Having the AC unit, cable and fridge were great amenities. Sheets were very comfy -- my only complaint was the queen mattresss but that's because I'm used to my king memory foam mattress and pillows at home. We were a little surprised to find the shower wasn't on the same level as the room (it's rather small and in the basement) but it had a toilet and was stocked with Aveda products which I definitely appreciated. The pets were an absolute joy!! They will greet you when you arrive back from your twin cities adventures with their bellies up and their sparkly eyes begging for love. We definitely got sucked into many love sessions with them. Super cute! And a great part of our trip only because I miss our kitty when we're away and it was great to have some animals to spend time with. Neighborhood was quiet and provided plenty of fun things to do and great food to eat. Didn't get to explore much since we were in town for a wedding but would definitely come back to Minneapolis and stay here to enjoy the Uptown neighborhood. Highly recommend this stay!
Dirk & Marilyn are good hosts and very helpful. The communication is excellent and they gave me some very good suggestions about Minneapolis attractions. (This trip I enjoyed the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, not far from the house.) They are very organized and the location is convenient to both the Uptown and Downtown neighborhoods. Thanks for a great stay
I booked this for my coworker, and she said this was friendly, centrally located place to stay with adorable animals.
Both Dirk & Marilyn made me feel very welcome. The house instructions/guidelines were complete & easy to understand. Their kitchen was well appointed and met my needs perfectly (great selection of teas & the use of an electric kettle). My room & bed were very comfortable with a great ceiling fan which eliminated the need to use the air conditioner (which was in great working order). As hosts they struck just the right balance between friendliness and non-intrusive, as I appreciate my privacy when necessary. The bathroom adjacent (it was shared with other guests with no problem) was squeaky clean with beautiful, new fixtures. I did not use the shower (located on the ground floor) due to time restrictions, but Marilyn showed it to me and that also had been recently remodeled. Their home is in a great location with easy access to interstate and public transportation with fabulous restaurants and great shopping within easy walking distance. Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
