Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Another flawless stay with Rachel in her charming house. Even a bit of snow just to remind me I was in Minnesota! A clean, safe, warm and lively household very convenient to south and west Minneapolis and to downtown.

    March 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Rachel's place. We had nice conversations with Rachel and we also had our privacy when we wanted to. We even extended our stay from 3 nights to 8!
    Highly recommended if you want to stay in St Louis Park!

    November 2012
  • Rachel is a wonderful host. Very welcoming and enjoyable to talk to, yet respectful of privacy. It was great to have my own area of the house that was clean and comfortable. It was just me but this would be great for more people. The location is suburban but so easy to get everywhere I needed to go by car.

    November 2012
  • We add our kudos to the many glowing reviews. Rachel and Maya are wonderful hosts–warm, welcoming and very friendly. The house is cozy, comfortable and clean, situated on a very nice suburban street and across from a park..Our room was quiet and in a private wing of the house, with its own bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. We were there for a wedding downtown and had a rental car. The location was great but it would have been less convenient using public transportation. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Minneapolis.

    November 2012
  • Enjoyed a pleasant stay in this convenient suburb of Minneapolis. Rachel and Maya were very helpful and welcoming. Our two daughters are in the the throes of a college search so it was fun to talk shop. Roomy and comfortable, easy parking, quiet.

    October 2012
  • Rachel and Maya are excellent hosts. They have a lovely home and are very warm and welcoming. The bed was comfortable. It could not have been a better stay!

    October 2012
  • This home is a wonderful place to stay. Very quiet neighborhood, but minutes to the Mpls lakes, uptown and downtown. You will find your room and bath to be very comfortable, great access to the rest of the house, if needed, and Rachel and her daughter are perfect hosts. The accommodations are very private and it is very easy to come and go as you need to. Our conversations with Rachel were very interesting and we totally enjoyed the limited time we had with her. Do not hesitate to book your stay here. Keni

    October 2012
  • I enjoyed my stay at Rachel's...the charming house, the private and home-like guest quarters ( 2BR, 1 bath is the guest quarters alone), nice, quiet neighbourhood which is close to Uptown and the friendliness and helpfulness of Rachel and her daughter :)

    September 2012
  • This home is charming, beautiful, and immaculate, and the guest area is private. Rachel was very welcoming and helpful. I met Maya only briefly but was impressed with her shining energy! My schedule was such that we had little time to visit so contact with my hosts was brief. I would definitely stay here again!

    September 2012
  • Rachel was a very gracious host, her beautiful home is in a very quiet neighborhood, just make sure the windows are fully closed to eliminate hearing the planes flying over. We felt very much at home and would recommend her home to anyone.
