The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A fine, friendly, and helpful host! A warm spot among late-winter ice.

    March 2014
  • Dimitri and his family were kind and welcoming in opening up their home to me. Dimitri also provided a lot of great tips on areas to visit and places to eat. Fantastic host!

    March 2014
  • Dimitri has always been a very attentive host. This is the third time I have stayed with him and his family. Our room is clean, spacious and quiet. There is an additional space heater for us folks who are not accustomed to the very cold winters in Minneapolis. It has always been an enjoyable stay at Dimitri's house. You can be sure I will be returning again.

  • Dimitri was our first host with Airbnb, and because it was a great experience, the reason we will look for accommodations with Airbnb first when travelling in the future.
    Dimitri was warm, gracious, generous and the accommodations perfect for our needs. Our room was spacious, clean, toasty warm in frigid February!, and the bed VERY comfortable. I believe Dimitri posted a very honest description of his home and offered accommodation, and that it was an excellent value. We were within a mile of the friends we came to visit, and within walking distance of one of our favorite Minneapolis haunts, the World Market. My friend later told me that Dimitri's home is located in the most culturally diverse district in the US, so our trip to the midwest had that out of country feel. Will cross our fingers that "our" room is available the next time we come to town.

  • 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

    Response from Dimitri:

    Thanks for the stellar review, Johnathan. Look forward to your next visit!

  • 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.

    November 2013
  • 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.

    November 2013
  • 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.

    October 2013
  • 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.
