House has internet, piano, family room with satellite TV; must like cats, as we have a very social one! No smoking indoors. No small children! Note that this is a shared bath situation. Summer guests, please note that I turn on the central air if it's over 75 and humid. I'm not one to keep my house cold!
I am a great host; I love people! I sometimes bake some special goodies such as banana bread or scones for breakfast, when I'm not working on a deadline for my theatre or design work. Coffee maker available, use of the refrigerator and microwave. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood, with ample street parking. You will find your stay here very cozy. I prefer that you have been registered with Airbnb six months, with a photo, or have references.

Main living room; shared bathroom; limited kitchen use.

It's really happy to live in Judy's home. She was polite, outgoing and her cat was so lovely.If I go to Minneapolis again, her home would be my first choice!
Judy was very welcoming and helpful for directions in the area. I had a very good stay. Due to forgetting something, I had to return. That worked out just fine.
Judy was really friendly, and made me feel at ease my first time in US. Her place was in a safe and peaceful neighbourhood and the room was very cosy. She even went the extra mile to cook dinner for me so that I didn't have to go out in the rain to find food after such a long journey. A really great host!
늦게 갔는데 기다려주셨고,정말 친절한 할머니 였습니다. 시설도 그냥 시골집처럼 아늑하였고 고양이 디에고도 너무 귀여워서 더 오래있고 싶었습니다. 그리고 갈때 공항으로 픽업 해주셔서 너무 감사했습니다
Judy was friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed our conversations with her. The guest room was right on the main floor, furnished well, and had a fun and arty color scheme. Also, the neighborhood is cozy and well-kept.
Loved her cat, Diego. He would greet us briefly whenever we would come in and then go about his own business.
Judy was incredibly wonderful to stay with. The room & location were perfect. Just minutes from the airport. I really enjoyed her company & hospitality.
Every morning I had a cup of coffee waiting on me! Diego (the kitty) was also extremely charming :) If I ever need a place to stay again while I am in Minneapolis, Judy's place will be the first on my list.
Thanks for such a wonderful experience, Judy!
Everything was exactly as described! The bedroom was clean and cozy, and Judy was the perfect hostess-she even got the coffee maker ready for me to have coffee in the mornings before I left! I'd definitely stay here again!
