This was our first Airbnb stay and we had a great experience. Randy was very welcoming and hospitable. He left us to ourselves but made himself easily available if we needed anything. The place was very clean and the decor was fun and eclectic.
Randy was gracious. Met me when I came to the place and even had warm cookies. Easy location to north downtown. Place was clean and comfortable.
Randy contacted us quickly and enforced us of how to get into the house and other information before he went on vacation. he let us know who we could contact incase we needed anything. The suite was comfortable and centrally located. We enjoyed the backyard lit at night.
Randy was very punctual and friendly in all his communication with us. His place is really beautiful. It is perfectly clean and gorgeously decorated. The rooms were private, as was access to the rooms. Randy was very friendly and he has a great book of local information. He was also totally unintrusive.
The neighborhood has grocery stores within walking distance but we travelled by car to find dinner. In general,the location is great for seeing Minneapolis. I highly recommend Randy's place!
Randy, and Toby (his hilarious, tiny dog), were great hosts! This was our first AirBNB experience and it was most definitely an excellent one. Randy left us freshly baked cookies and a bottle of wine, to start. The residence was clean and accommodating with a toaster, mini-fridge, two queen-sized beds, towels, couches, plates/cups, and a full set of utensils. Aside from a few bugs (the residence was in the basement/below ground), we had no complaints. We were fortunate to have a car and it was a 5-7 minute drive into downtown and a cheap ($8-14) cab/Uber ride. I am a female and was traveling with two other females and we felt safe and taken care of during both nights of our trip. Thanks for a great stay, Randy!
Let's start with the chocolate chip cookies and bottle of red wine--our welcome gift from our host. And it gets better from there. The location is so convenient, 5 minutes to the North Loop. The rooms were spacious, spotlessly clean and very private. Fun, eclectic artwork--no chance that you might think you are in a Holiday Inn. Access to a lovely backyard garden.
Randy is a great host--very responsive to our questions, interesting to talk to. We look forward to staying there again!
I had a fabulous stay at Randy's place. He was such a kind and thoughtful host. I arrived on Valentine's night and he even invited me up for "happy hour". Just what I needed!
As for the space, the bed was super comfortable, the electric kettle kept me at the top of my tea game and the breakfast snacks Randy left for me saved me in the mornings. His place is in a great location which makes it easy to get to Uptown/downtown.
I'll definitely reach out to Randy again when I'm in the area!
About the Host, Randy
I'm a native Minnesotan living in Minneapolis. Love to travel, get-togethers with friends, and the outdoors. Toby, my Chihuahua/Terrier and I have lived in the home for 12 years, during which time I've remodeled it completely, bringing a late '70s split entry into modern times. I currently rent the upper level of my home to a long-time friend who is also available to answer questions when I'm not available.
