I have studied, lived traveled and worked around the world, and understand how to be a helpful but unobtrusive host. I share my condo with an uber-friendly and well-behaved British Labrador retriever “Duncan" who also understands hospitality! We look forward to hosting you during your visit to Minneapolis - the city of Lakes!
My guests have included students, professors, artists, business people and visitors from Italy, India, Taiwan, Turkey, Indonesia, Canada, Brazil, and all parts of the USA. Hope to host you soon!
Guests have entire access to the entire condo including full kitchen privileges, living room, dinner room, the laundry located in the lower level, and outside patio.
Interaction with Guests
We will be present most of the time, though we work full time and are involved with community activities. You will be provided with freshly ground coffee, fine tea, and an amazing cooked breakfast. Often times we invite our guest to join us for an evening meal - David is a fine cook! Conversation over drinks is also not unusual. Your space will be honored, but this is a shared living situation.
Walking and biking paths, tennis courts, several lakes, and parkland surround the neighborhood. The excitement of Uptown Minneapolis is less than a mile by foot. This is a special place.
There is bus service less than 100 feet from the from door that connects with light rail to airport and a 12 minute trip to DT Minneapolis via bus. "Nice Ride" bicycles are docked less than 2 blocks from the condo.
You are welcome to use the entire condo: the comfortable living room with HD TV and streaming music, spread out and work on a project on the dining room table, or use the gourmet kitchen to prepare something to eat or drink. Our home will become yours during your stay. Smoking is only allowed outdoors.
