Rhonda greeted us upon arrival. The home was in the perfect location for our visit to Minneapolis. It is an older home but was very comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet.
The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals.
The location was in walking distance to grocery stores, coffee shops, and a laundry mat.
The beds were very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed having so much room and we all agreed it beat staying in a hotel!!
We will defintely stay at this location every time we visit Minneapolis.
Great location! This is a spacious, clean, and quiet apartment with a very nice and well-equipped kitchen. The sunroom is a wonderful space for breakfast. We really appreciated the use of good quality bicycles (and helmets and lock). The apartment is a very short walk to great coffee, the Wedge food co-op, the lakes, and the greenway. Harry and Rhonda were gracious hosts.
We had a lovely time at Harry and Rhonda's! The house had tons of character and was beautifully kept, with a great kitchen. The neighborhood is safe and quiet and within a pleasant walk to lots of restaurants/shops etc in the Uptown neighborhood (we had brunch at Barbette, it was very good), about a 15-20 minute walk to the (excellent) art museum, and a slightly more ambitious walk (25-ish minutes?) or $6 Uber to downtown/airport lightrail. We didn't use the bikes provided, but that option would bring even more sights within easy reach - the city is flat and seems very bike-friendly. Our hosts were super nice and very responsive to our questions, and were happy to offer tips etc. If I come back through Minneapolis I'd definitely stay again!
The host was great, I rented the entire place and did not see them. The neighborhood is awesome, one of the best locations in the cities
Nice hosts- not intrusive, but available if needed- offered suggestions according to our interests.
Accommodated at last minute - check in/out easy.
Great location-older home that was clean and tidy- plenty of space- parking on street- kitchen remodeled- sunny front room.
Would stay again.
We enjoyed a lot out time in Minneapolis! The house is nice and warm. We couldn't meet Harry and Rhonda, but they prepared everything for us and they were in constant contact. The neighborhood is great, quiet and close to the downtown. We totally recommend this place!
About the Host, Harry & Rhonda
Hello. We are Rhonda and Harry. Rhonda loves to quilt, read books and garden. But she is also camera shy! She is an amazing tiler and sheet rocker. She was the driving force behind our remodel and preparation for Air B&B.
I am an avid cyclist (even bike in the winter) and have watched this city grow and change since 1982 when I first set down roots. I have many bike maps (free of course) to give you whenever you decide to visit the 2nd most bike friendly city in the U.S.
I am an adult educator and bicycle realtor but pursue many other interests as well. Learning about and building relationships with all our guests is particularly important.
