Really chic, space for one to four people who appreciate privacy, a kitchen and tasteful decor.
Near everything in the Twin Cities.
Wonderful contemporary charm. Simple bedroom, tiled bath, darling kitchen. Full size futon in living room and full size bed in bedroom.
Stocked with dishes, cookware, towels and sheets. Free wifi.
Expect quiet privacy and a clean home while you are here. Lucas lives next door and will help you with what ever you need.
Close to downtown Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Restaurants, Whole Foods, parks, 15 minutes from Uptown and lakes, 15 minutes from MSP airport and blocks off interstate 94.
Three blocks off the train between Minneapolis and Saint Paul as well as the bus stop. On street parking easy in this quiet neighborhood (across the street lives a Mpls police officer, so it's pretty safe to park around here).
This little flat has all the charm of a city flat and none of the chaos.

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 :)
This is the sort of place that airbnb was made for. It's not way fancy, but still very nice. It has all the basics you need, but still has an affordable price. I would recommend it.
Here's what it has that is great: very fast wifi, a gas stove, fridge/freezer, cookware, soft bed, good bathroom, quiet neighbors, privacy (since you have the whole side to your self), good, clean ambiance, very close proximity to St.Paul/Minneapolis light rail system, good price (especially the weekly rate).
Here's what it doesn't have: washer/dryer, television. Neither of these is a big deal to me. With the really fast wifi you can watch TV on your phone/tablet if you want. Also, there is a laundromat pretty close by. But if either of those things are really important to you, you might consider another place. Otherwise, this is a good spot. It's very easy to get in and out, low hassle. Again, very good for the price!
I never met Sarina, but Lucas was around if needed. The place was very nice and close to the light rail which made trekking back and forth between St. Paul and Minneapolis very convenient.
The apartment was clean and just as described. Note there is no microwave available so tea drinkers used to waiting for boiling water on the stove will be fine. Great cafe-bakery called Bread & Chocolate less than a mile away on Grand Ave, a strip of the best shops and restaurants in the Twin Cities.
I can't find a single thing wrong withthis cute, welcoming one bedroom home. Sarina has everything set up beautifully. It was literally an easy turn key experience. Lots of street parking, great location, close to Metro... a fun way to experience the city.
The description warns that it'd look lived-in, but I thought it was very clean, just like the photos suggest. The light rail station and the Midway shopping center were close, the wi-fi was extremely fast, and the kitchen had everything I needed - the kitchen sink even gets hot water quickly, which is very nice. I didn't interact with Sarina or Lucas too much, but the interaction I did have was warm and friendly and prompt. It was basically exactly what I was looking for when I booked it.
Sarina's place was just as described and very comfortable. It has nice charm and I felt that all the essentials were in order. Sarina warns that her place will look lived in, but in my opinion it was above expectations and very clean and well taken care of.
Lucas was very helpful in arranging a slightly earlier check in time for me and was always ready to help with any thing I needed. He was very responsive and easy to get a hold of.
I also really enjoyed the location. There was easy access to the Light Rail as well as the interstate near by, yet the neighborhood is still quiet. Overall the location made it very easy to explore the city.
Sarina's place was perfect for my stay in St. Paul. The duplex was exactly as described- it was clean, cute, and had the all the basic tools for cooking. It was also close to public transport (~7-10 minute walk). Sarina and Lucas (her caretaker) were both very prompt in responding to any inquiries and a pleasure to work with. It was a great experience, and I would stay here again upon future visits.
