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.
NOTE: Every room in the house is equipped with a smoke detector. The guest room has a first aid kit.
Main living room; shared bathroom; limited kitchen use.

Great spot, Judy is awesome. Really close to the airport, easy taxi/bus/uber to downtown & Walker. She even went above and beyond to offer fresh coffee and morning treats. Thank you!
Exactly what you are looking for if you are looking for a clean, interesting room with a great price and even better location! (Especially if you want a fast commute to the airport)
My stay at Flo's room was really good. The house was really nice and clean and Judy was very friendly and good company. She made me feel right at home and had everything I needed. Diago was a friendly cat too...if I'm in Minneapolis again I'll be more than glad to stay there again.
Judy was warm and welcoming. She made me feel completely at home, away from home. The room was larger than I expected and the (rarely) shared bathroom was two steps from my door. The neighborhood was very nice and completely safe.
Diego the cat was amazing. He is the sweetest, most loving cat I have known. He will come to you and love you as soon as you arrive.
Judy is a very intelligent and interesting lady. Because of my demanding schedule while there for five nights, we only had one evening to get to know each other. I got "home" from my workshop at about 10 and we started visiting until I realized it was 2 am and had to get up at 6. We covered, and solved all the problems of the world.
I will stay here when I come back for more workshops in the future.
I had a lovely time at Judy's very charming home. She was truly the perfect host!
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!
