Other Things to Note
NEW AIRBNB-ER'S PLEASE NOTE:
This is not a hotel; it is my home.
It will not be perfect; it will be lived in.
I will not make the bed(s) - I will provide clean sheets and towels.
I have left cleaning supplies in case you want to wipe or sweep to your personal taste.
If you are sensitive about cleanliness, consider a proper hotel or be willing to do extra wiping up after the neighbor finishes.
1) Your space will be clean to the owners standards when you arrive with fresh towels and sheets in a closet in the front room. It will not be perfect; it will be lived in.
2) Please leave the house tidy when you leave, we will handle laundry.
3) The sofa in the living room is a full size futon bed.
4) Please be quiet after 8pm.
5) We will charge $75 to re-key the building if you check out and keep the keys, so please be sure to return them when you check out.
6) Please let the neighbor know if there is anything you need during your stay.
7) If you generate smelly garbage (especially diapers) please take the garbage out. You will find a blue waste-bin in the alley - to your left between your flat and 1023 Central.
8) IF YOU HAVE A CHILD PEASE BRING A WATERPROOF MATTRESS COVER AND SHEET. This will ensure no damage to the bed :)
I stayed here twice over a two week period for some work I was doing at the University of Minnesota. The location makes it very convenient to get to downtown Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the University by taking the train which is three blocks away. It is also very easy, if not a little time consuming, to get to/from the airport by taking the train. Sarina quickly resolved any issues I had, and was extremely responsive.

We had a great stay at Sarina's airbnb. We could not have picked a better location as our wedding event was at the Como Zoo. It is also very close to the highway but not so close. Rooms were just as described. Our daughter found futon comfortable too. Next door person was very helpful and friendly too.
The description for this apartment expressed exactly by the host. I can not put it more precisely. - "It will not be perfect; it will be lived in"
Don't expect service and chic like in 5* hotel, and cleanness of hospital operating room. If you are "Mr. Perfect" you better seek another place to stay in.
I would definitely will stay here next time.
The location is ideal, especially for the college campuses nearby. The private apartment is as described.
We enjoyed our stay at Contemporary Charm. Everything was as indicated in the correspondence.
