This is a very conveniently located home. Decor is quaint and house is very clean. The room was cozy, but well-appointed, including the an air conditioning unit in the window (which I was very grateful for, as I visited during a heat wave) and the Healys were extremely accommodating and kind. They are wonderful conversationalists but not overbearing in the slightest. It made me feel very comfortable, and I would definitely stay here again when I'm in the area next!
Nancy and Dave were very welcoming and have a charming, comfortable home in a nice, quiet location. They were even gracious enough to lend me a bicycle for the length of my stay.
My four-night experience at Nancy and Dave's charming home was everything I needed and more. They were accommodating to my early morning schedule having my breakfast set out and ready for me at a very early hour. My room was comfortable and quiet which I needed because of a competition schedule that required a good night's sleep. I felt very comfortable coming and going whenever I needed. The neighborhood is beautiful with many amenities within walking distance. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Lovely, comfortable place in a beautiful location. Nancy and Dave were both very welcoming - the breakfasts were lovely each morning and they were happy to help with things to do in the area. Would gladly stay here again.
A spotless house in a beautiful neighbourhood very close to St Paul campus. Very kind and caring hosts, a comfortable bed and hot shower.
Nancy and Dave were heartwarming hosts and made my stay in their cozy house a memorbale experience. It was nice to feel so welcome and at home so far away from home. The house is decorated with love and full of history and books, situated in a friendly neighbourhood and just a few minutes from the St Paul's Campus and with a bus stop around the corner to get to downtown and the Green Line. Both were so helpful with finding my way to work and sightseeing spots, Dave did actually draw me a map to find a nice trail for running. Lovely people, lovely place: Looking forward to get the chance to sty again with them some day!
I had a great experience staying in St. Paul! The neighborhood was close to U of Minnesota where I had some activities and within walking distance of the park and places to get food. The house was cozy and comfortable. Unfortunately there were a few hiccups with my flight on arrival (delayed) but I was able to work that out with the hosts, thank you!

About the Host, Nancy
We're from St. Paul, MN and both retired. I was a teacher for 35 years. Dave is a freelance editor and writer. We love books as you'll discover. We spend a lot of time in Brooklyn, NY visiting our sons, their wives and our grandson, but we also love to host and have met some interesting people. One of our favorite "date nights" is renting a movie and cooking a meal to fit the cuisine represented in it. We've explored Fijian, Ghanian, Japanese, Spanish, Indian and French cuisine as well as some I've chosen to forget!
