Dan was a perfect host in his cozy getaway. Fresh towels and personal bathroom items were waiting for me on my newly made bed. Dan even made me breakfast. With cafes and a few restaurants within walking distance (you have to try Tiny Diner and Matt’s Bar), this is a pretty good neighborhood that’s outside of the hustle of the city. I’d recommend having a car or bike to get around, but did find the public transportation easy to navigate. Thank you, Dan! You’re a great AirB&B host.
My stay at Dan´s home was great. The house was really pleasant and Dan was friendly, welcoming and definitely creative -each morning we would try something different for breakfast!
The room was very comfortable and warm.
I would stay again at Dan´s home if i am back in Minneapolis :)
This was by far my worst airbnb experience. I woke up at 2am to some strange noise. Something was going through the trash. I kept hearing noises off and on. Eventually I turned my light on to investigate and I saw a mouse run under my bed. The mouse must have been collecting stuff for its nest. At that point I packed up my stuff and went to sleep downstairs on the couch. In the morning I noticed that there were mice traps all over the kitchen. I was scheduled to stay for 7 days but I checked out after the first night. If you are going to host an airbnb and have mouse problems you better call an exterminator before you have guests stay. This was totally unacceptable.
This was an excellent place to stay. The room was private, comfortable, and had everything I needed. Towels/washcloth were provided. The bed was very cozy and the room was well set up for ease of use. The house was tidy and welcoming. Dan always made an amazing breakfast (even though, due entirely to my wacky schedule, it always ended up being lunch!) and he was very accommodating. And his homemade bread was very tasty! This house is in a good area of town, featuring a short bus ride/drive to downtown and Loring Park attractions (such as the world-famous Walker Art Center) as well as being reasonably close to the Blue Line light rail that connects to the airport and also runs downtown (another short bus ride to get to the light rail). The neighborhood was quiet and I always felt safe walking back to the house at night. I used the bus exclusively for my trip, but it seemed like there was plenty of street parking around the house for those using a car. This is a great place to stay and is well worth putting at the top of your list.
My girlfriend and I had a lovely time with Benjamin and Dan. They were both friendly and made us feel welcome into their home. Despite the fact that Ben was packing up and ready to move they still let us stay and made us feel like we were welcomed guest during the busy time in their lives. The location was great and just about 15 minutes away from anywhere we wanted to go in the city.
Dan and Ben were amazing hosts in every capacity. Knowledgeable about the area, welcoming to visitors, easy to talk to, and excellent cooks are the first descriptions that come to mind. They made my wife and I feel very welcome, and when I came down with a bug, Ben even ran out and bought some medicine for me, something he definitely didn't have to do.
I cannot express how kind and interesting, what attentive hosts they were. I would highly recommend staying at their digs if you come to the Minneapolis area. Well worth it.
First Airbnb experience, and definitely a positive one. Dan & Benjamin were both nice and helpful, and served some of the best pancakes I've had in a long time on my final morning. Room was exactly what I needed (included desk etc), shower gel provided, and location of the house was easy to get to and ideal for access to airport and downtown. Will return on next visit to Mpls!

About the Host, Dan
I'm a professional Spanish to English translator from Milwaukee, WI with interests in music, tea, travel, sourdough bread baking, Persian and Arabic calligraphy, youth mentoring, and community building.
I started out as a traveler on Airbnb and later became a co-host with my roommate at the time. It has been great! I love meeting new people, learning new things, and developing my capacity for hospitality.
