About this listing
Three bedroom 2nd floor apartment in an owner occupied duplex. Pleasant residential minded area within walking distance to thriving neighborhood center. Like a small town downtown in the city. Walk to everything, local market with organic fresh produce and meat market, post office, medical/pharmacy, library, a variety of churches, lots of parks, bank, coffee shops, book store, gas/service station, cafe and fine dining, tea and wine shops. Walk to the MN State Fair a do not miss event before Labor Day.
Free basement laundry, side patio, table chairs, gas grill, back and front yards.
Interaction with Guests
Generally there is very little. Usually the guests park on the street (very little on street parking pressure) in front of the house and use the front door. We park in the rear of the property and generally use the rear/side door. We may run into one another when you do laundry or on the patio, but my typical feedback is that my upstairs vacation stays hardly know I'm there. Needless to say I do live on the main level unit so if there is anything you ever need just let me know!
There is a bus stop 1 block from our house. About a 20 minute bus ride to downtown Minneapolis, optionally you can then get on the light rail to the airport or Mall of America in Bloomington about 1 hour 10 minutes, or drive there in about 20 minutes.
Other Things to Note
2 night stay minimum. Fee is based on a 6 person occupancy. Additional guest are $20.00 per person per night for which we have a pull out couch in the living room and a side room through the master that can accommodate a pack and play and/or an air mattress (provided upon request). Babies stay free.
Please enjoy the space. I expect you to be practice "quiet enjoyment", i.e. use the space in a way that does not disturb others. There is no smoking in the apartment or inside the building.
You may roam the yard, use the shared outdoor patio and grill. Please ask for what you do not find in the apartment, for directions or fun places to go. Please refrain from pet guests to accommodate those other guests who are pet sensitive. Under 3 night stay requires a $75.00 cleaning fee.
THis was a perfect venue for 4 senior citizens having an Alanon 4 day 3 night retreat. Gorgeous wooded neighborhood for walking and enjoying 100 year old homes, beautiful landscaping all around, amazing oaks, and our apartment was clean and accommodating for our retreat. The traffic was amazingly quiet. It seemed like only one car an hour at most. One of us struggles with stairs, otherwise I would book it right now for our next retreat in January.
Great stay July 5-10th. Comfortable accommodations and conveniently located near good food and market. Space was perfect for us (6 adults and 2 children) with easy access to the university.
Nice clean enjoyable place, quite neighborhood, and close to Como Park. We enjoyed the stay and will think of it when we come to visit again.
Robert was very professional and provided all the info I needed. He was responsive when I inquired about some details, and gave us total privacy when we were staying there.
We had a great stay at Robert's duplex. The place was beautiful: very clean and elegantly decorated. We liked the spare and uncluttered feel. Comfortable beds and rooms -- much, much better than being trapped in a hotel. Parking in front was a breeze. Traveling to the convention center was easy by car. It's a quiet neighborhood. There's a convenience store within walking distance. Robert was accommodating and helpful. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
This was a lovely little place. We managed to cram nine people in here somewhat comfortably. Robert saw to it to provide us with more than enough towels, sheets, and pillows. I would highly recommend this apt/house to a family travelling to Minneapolis/St. Paul.
