We’re a 5 minute walk from The Greenway, the bicycle highway of what was recently crowned “America’s Most Bike-Friendly City”. Equidistant from the stunning promontories of the Upper Mississippi River, the chic boutiques of Uptown’s Chain of Lakes area, and the winding paths of Minnehaha creek, this is a nature lover’s basecamp.
If you’re a homebody, get anything delivered to your doorstep. Walk two blocks and shop for your own organic and locally-grown provisions from the Midtown Global Market. Our guests also have enjoyed the large helpings and nicely priced (our airbnb guests receive 5% off) vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore delights and coffee at the Modern Times cafe just around the corner. Or, if you are a late morning eater like we are, you are welcomed to join us for breakfast.
You can also hop on a loaner bike--one of ours, or one from nearby Nice Ride public bike depot--and explore the smorgasbord of what iTravel Magazine called the “America’s blossoming culinary destination…attracting top chef’s from around the world.”
In winter, skate on Powderhorn Lake, once an Olympic speed skating oval, this idyllic park is short walk from your apartment and offers a great place to watch the sunset against the skyscrapers of Downtown Minneapolis.
Everything about my stay at Dimitri’s place was incredible! Dimitri’s place was close to everything. I am very glad he had space for me that night. And what a place! Everything a traveller needs.
Dimitri is a great guy with a cozy abode and a great family. He gave me some spot on and easy to follow local directions and guidance toward shopping, recreation, bus lines, a cold beer, etc. I got around easily with his help.
I was lucky enough to be both available at dinnertime, and invited for dinner. The food and the company were great! His family are very interesting people living in interesting times. It was fun to learn about them. I even got an extra special history lesson about Marcus Garvey via an older eyewitness relative on speakerphone! Loved it.
After Dinner there was a small bonfire out in the yard to hang out by. It was a clean, warm, friendly abode, and I slept great! I very much look forward to my next excuse to come to Minneapolis, and to again see my new friend Dimitri.
Dimitri really is a fantastic host, his hospitality was second to none, I love the place, spacious, super clean and great location, I stayed with my girlfriend and we pretty much had the apartment to ourselves, I would love to stay here again and would definitely recommend
We felt really comfortable staying here even though we ended up not meeting our hosts in person. Dmitri was really flexible in terms of our arrival time, which made our short trip to Minneapolis more relaxing. And the bed was really comfortable! We would stay here again for sure.
I and my friend stayed Dimitri’s house for two days. The room is exactly same with the pictures. It was spacious. The room has closet, so we could keep our clothes in there. And there were space heater which can be used ourselves. And bathroom was good, too. We liked hot shower. They gave towels so we could use them. There are grocery store and Popeyes nearby. It was good for us. The location is really good. Bus stops are nearby the house. We didn’t have much chance to talk but still they were kind for us. We had a great time in there.
Dimitri and his family have a very warm and comfortable home. We did not get a chance to meet them but his online list of subjects such as how to check in and checkout were extremely helpful.
This situation was perfect for our needs.
Dimitri is a very sweet person, he even gave me a ride to his house from the light rail station. As a guest you have access to the entire downstairs of his house including the kitchen and a private bathroom. The guest room was spacious, clean, and the bed is very comfortable. I will definitely be staying here again as I go to Minneapolis regularly.
Loved staying here with Dimitri! He was very accommodating and kind, and was great to talk to. The house really is very close to everything. I highly recommend staying here!
My time at casa Kaasan was quite wonderful! I felt welcome from the first to the last moment, even though I had to leave early in the morning and came back late because of my conference, so I could not spend too much time there. But whenever I was there, we had very nice conversations and this made my stay in Minneapolis infinitely more pleasurable.
The room itself was spottlessly clean (with a very comfy bed), even though Dimitri was doing some work around the house. If you are looking for a place that is real, and still quite close to Down- and Uptown, then look no further! I would definitely stay there again if I were to come to Minneapolis again.
Based on the reviews, we expected a very clean, well kept space. However, it felt much more cluttered and dirty than most reviews reflect. On the other hand, we did appreciate the proximity to downtown and the friendliness of the host.
Dimitri and Family were gracious and very friendly hosts. Location was close to where we wanted to be. Even though there is no breakfast included, he did go out to get coffee for us, and even referred a mechanic who worked on our son's car for a very reasonable price. Good Shower and plenty of hot water. Had the whole first floor to ourselves and even got a feather pillow (essential!) upon request.
