I have lived in Minneapolis, most of my life, but my art has brought me to Latin America, Africa, and Northern Europe. I enjoy meeting people and sharing stories, but I can also give you all the privacy you would like.
I look forward to meeting you and hosting your stay in Minneapolis! "Welcome to a beautiful spot in the universe!"
Guests have access to the Living Room, Dining Room, Front porch, Master Suite, Bathroom, and kirchen if arranged.
Interaction with Guests
I like to give my guests privacy, yet I like to be helpful, if needed.
Two short blocks from several bus stops. I am located in the heart of the city.
I ask people to take off their shoes at the door, so you may want to bring some comfortable shoes to wear inside, again, thank you.
If you let me know ahead of time, I can have the type of coffee or tea you like: dark roast, green tea etc.
Also, I do appreciate when guests let me know the approximate time of arrival and also of checkout.
And, of course, no smoking in the house. On the porch is ok.
THANK YOU for your booking!
