My first airbnb experience couldn't have been better. In fact I would suggest all the seasoned travellers so much used to staying in luxury hotels, to go and "relish" this kind of living, may not be so much for the luxury but for the experience. Vicki was kind, humble, helpful and so considerate. We, my wife son and myself, stayed for a considerate number of days in mid August at her lovely home. from start to end our experience can be only described as wonderful and enthralling. Vicki made sure that we were received well and made comfortable in her home. We were explained about the facilities and amenities and were given a "tour" of the house. The place is well designed and serves all purposes. We were offered all help at whatever time of the day we required. She even opened up het kitchen for us to use and prepare stuff as and when we desired. I found this gesture to be very kind. Over a few days we were absolutely comfortable and it gave us the feel of our second home. She has two cats and they too are inspired by the "feel good factor" that is prevalent all around in the house. She offered us rides and even took us on an exhaustive tour of the city of St Paul and Minneapolis. Now this we could have never done on our own for sure and that too in such great detail. Go to Vickis if you want a genuine friend for life, go to Vickis if you want the most comfortable stay in Minneapolis, go to Vickis if you want to have the time of your life....we did. Thanks Vicki.

I couldn't have had a better Airbnb experience than my stay with Vicki. She was warm, friendly, welcoming and helpful but also relaxed and gave me plenty of space and privacy. And because there was bridge construction that complicated my commute, Vicki volunteered to drive me to work every morning---for 6 weeks! Definitely above and beyond the call! The place was cute and just what I expected and wanted. Great neighborhood. Nice daughter and pets, as well! And best of all, after my 6 week stay, I know I made a friend and that she and I will keep in touch. : )

Vicki and London were great hosts who were very accommodating and helpful! They gave me a lot of privacy for the three months that I stayed with them while working in Minneapolis and Vicki went out of her way to help me with giving me rides or helping my stay feel comfortable. The pets Finn, Zoe and Izmo are wonderful and hung out with me a lot. The house is great, and Seward is a wonderfully quiet and charming neighborhood. It's right in between downtown Minneapolis where I worked and St. Paul where my friend lived, so it was convenient for me. Nice restaurants in the area, with a game-changing Asian grocery store called United Noodle a 20 minute walk away. The only problem I had was the inconsistent bus transport system which I used to get to work- it's well connected but infrequent. But thats a very minor issue- Minneapolis is an incredibly easy place to get around by car or bike. Overall, the house, host and neighborhood all made my first AirBnB experience and move to Minneapolis truly wonderful!

My stay with Vicki was really great. The house is cozy and the neighborhood is centrally located allowing easy access to the surrounding Twin Cities area. Vicki went above and beyond in terms of giving me advice about the area, etc. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience and look forward to returning.

Host was very outgoing and friendly, the house was clean and we'll kept, we were a little cold at night but or host told us to wake her up if we needed anything we just didn't. The only downside was the room was on the second floor and the bathroom is on the first and the shower is in the basement so it was not very convenient but all the facilities were clean and nice as well. Overall I would give it 5 stars if not for the bathroom setup... so 4 stars

Vicki's place was fantastic! Not only was the room/house really nice and in a very convenient location but Vicki, her daughter, their two cats and dog were all wonderful. It was great getting to know them and I look forward to the next time my work takes me back to Minnesota and I get to stay with them!
