We really enjoyed this rental! It was very clean, very nice bathrooms and nice appliances in the kitchen. It accommodated our needs very nicely with even a few extra requests. The beds were very comfortable. The location was great for St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis. The neighborhood was quiet, except for the train out the back yard; but, we got use to it right away and was not loud during the night at all.
We had a wonderful time staying at this home. The house was clean and well stocked with everything you would need for a weekend away. The wedding festivities that brought us into town had events all over the cities - Edina, Roseville, Plymouth and the Mall of America - so we were lucky to find such a centrally located house. My husband and I were the only ones in our group of 8 that had our kids with us so staying in this house allowed us to hang out upstairs while our kids slept in the basement. Not once did my kids wake up from our laughing and games upstairs and our friends said they never heard our kids when they woke up in the middle of the night. Angie provided great recommendations for places to eat and purchase alcohol which came in very handy! I couldn't recommend this house and Angie more.
Angie has a lovely home! I stayed with 3 other friends, but we originally booked with 6 people and it still would have been a comfortable stay. There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bath upstairs with a full kitchen and living room, and 2 bedrooms and 1 bath downstairs, so it gave us plenty of space. We were also minutes from the downtown nightlife and 15 minutes from the chain of lakes where we biked. The Mall of America is a short 20 minute drive as well. The driveway is a little snug, especially with multiple cars, but there was plenty of street parking.
Thank you for the feedback Celeste! I'm glad to hear that you had plenty of space and enjoyed the location!
I do agree that the parking can be a little snug in the driveway with multiple cars but I am glad that there was still plenty of street parking available even with all of the big events in town (all star game, basilica block party, etc)
Please come back anytime! You guys were wonderful!
I booked the house for my work colleagues. Angie was super helpful ahead of the booking as well as during and she replied to all emails/calls promptly. She went beyond what one might expect of a host as she even filled some 'special requests' for us, taking in a couple of deliveries ahead of our arrival and bringing them to the house - I cannot thank her enough for that!
My colleagues were very happy with the house. They've said it was spacious, with comfortable beds, and really clean. The house has a big garden which is nice to sit in. It is on a quiet street with friendly neighbours, which is always a bonus.
All in all, renting from Angie was a great, stress-free experience which I wouldn't mind repeating.
Angie did a really nice job of communication prior to our arrival and offered multiple great suggestions to make our trip fun. Highlights for the house:
- Certainly it was in a great location for access to a lot of Minneapolis sites
- Plenty of space for all our folks with a laundry room which came in handy
- Near to a super easy commuter bike rental station that we took advantage of several times
- Clean, clean house which was well stocked with all the basic necessities and the kitchen was surprisingly fresh and sized well
Some points to be aware of are that there is no large dining table to gather everyone around which would have been nice, but plenty of seating for conversations. The trains are frequent, but not very loud. We realized that they didn't blow the whistle ever near the house, so you just had that rumble of a train going by that was okay. Squeaky floors made us want early morning risers down in the basement rooms while late sleepers that wouldn't be walking around were upstairs.
This vacation was a really fun one for us and that included a 72 year old grandma down to two 14 year olds with lots of energy. Take Angie's suggestions to heart and if you get a chance, go to eat at La Grolla in St. Paul and also do a show at the Guthrie theatre. Two highlights of the trip for us.
The house was amazing! Brand new appliances, spacious rooms, and the neighborhood seemed very warm and welcoming! Everything we need was not to far of a drive to get to or even walk. And cab fare was about 11 dollars (one way) which was amazing especially when splitting it with other people. I would love to rent from this couple again. I would only have one complaint and say that the pictures do not do justice on how beautiful the home is and spacious! haha Oh and the backyard is perfect for yard games and even grilling out all tho we didn't because weather wasn't the best during our stay.
