Welcome. ברוכים הבאים. Bienvenidos.
Rachel has been a wonderful hostess. She has been extremely welcoming, her house is clean and the space is lovely! The room also has nice privacy if desired.
Rahel was a great host! She welcomed us into her clean home which was perfectly central to everywhere we needed to be. Would definitely recommend her and her home.
Rachel was a fantastic host! The space was as described and I was excited to get the entire Minneapolis experience of the first snow storm! Thanks to Rachel for great restaurant suggestions and general help navigating the area. We even had some really great conversations! I'd definitely recommend Rachel's place. Rachel, wishing you the best!
Great location, great host. Worked out very well.
We truly enjoyed our stay in Minneapolis with Rachel. Her house is charming, and in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. Everyone was most kind, and her puppy Lacey is simply adorable. We used the house as a "home base" for our travels and sight-seeing around the area... and I even got a chance to do some fly-fishing on the upper Mississippi, which was a wonderful opportunity for a Californian.
Rachel's home was a real sanctuary for a few busy Minneapolis business days. She was warm and accommodating, and the location is a very easy 20 minute express bus ride from downtown. I thoroughly appreciated the privacy, cleanliness and comfort at a fraction of what it would have cost to stay at a downtown hotel.
Thank you, Rachel
We saw the BEST of Minneapolis and Saint Paul and came back "home" to Rachel's house exhausted each night from our day trips and adventures! It is nice to have a comfortable, friendly, quiet, and safe place to rest our tired souls.
Thank you to Rachel and her lovely daughter Maya for allowing us to share some stories together around the kitchen table.
The house is charming and so much better than a stuffy hotel.
It is fun to make new friends and know that the world is made up of so many friendly people. It is true, Mid-Westerners are wonderful folk! "Mazal Tov" and "L'Chaim" to both our hosts!
If you look for a quiet place in a beautiful house and don't want to stay in downtown Minneapolis, then go for it.
We have a good experience staying at Rachel's
beautiful home in their lovely neighborhood. Rachel and Maya are wonderful hosts and looking foward to meeting them again in the future!
Rachel was a great host with lots of local recommendations (you HAVE to try the pizza at Punch!). We were very comfortable and the location is top notch.
