Welcome to our home! Located in a progressive, biker and pedestrian friendly neighborhood. We are close to downtown Minneapolis, University of Minnesota, and just across the river from St. Paul. It's great being 5 minutes from everything!
Our home accomodates 2 guests. A spacious and comfortable bedroom with a double bed, and access to our entire home. You are welcome to join us for breakfast or dinner if it fits into your schedule, or feel free to use our updated and spacious kitchen to prepare your own meals. We are close to several great cafes and we are 6 blocks from our neighborhood organic food cooperative.
Transporation includes: Nice Ride Bikes (station 1/2 block from our home), Light Rail commuter train, and bus service. If you have your own car, parking is available on street in front of our home.
Our neighborhood is very active with bikers, walkers, and friendly neighbors. We are blocks from the Minneapolis Grand Rounds trail system which by bike or foot will take you through the many wonderful and natural areas of our City.
We are generally very flexible. We hope that you would find our home comfortable, easy going and convenient to the many professional or personal aspects of your visit to Minneapolis!
Vicki made us feel welcome in her comfortable home located near the Birchwood Restaurant and the Seward Co-op, both highlights of the Seward neighborhood. Access to the purple bathroom (down a flight of stairs) was convenient. I didn't see the $10 extra charge for a second guest, but that was my oversight.
Many thanks for your hospitality. Despite my late request just hours before arriving Vicki responded very quickly and made it possible for me to stay at her modern house for one night. I really appreciate her friendly welcome and her tips about Birchwood Cafe one of the highpoints of my visit.
Vicki welcomed us warmly and made us feel right at home. We got to have a few good chats in passing. Our room upstairs was simple and perfect for our stay, with a full bathroom just for us in the basement. A bonus was being greeted by her cats and dog. Although we didn't cook, the great kitchen was available. Great location for us. We hope to return!
I stayed at Vicki's place for a little more than a month as I moved from Europe to take a job at the University of Minnesota. Her place became quickly a home away from home as I settled in Minneapolis. Vicki is a terrific host and friend, quick to answer any questions, extremely friendly and helpful. She know a lot about the city, helped me to discover and even move into my new apartment. I will certainly miss our evening discussions and playing with the pets.
The house is in a great location, a short walk to the University making it a great choice for visitors. It is really nice and clean with a great kitchen, a cozy couch, and the guest room is very comfortable. A great food co-op is just a few blocks away and there is a nice restaurant / coffee place, the Birchwood Cafe, just around the corner. There is also a bus to Downtown Minneapolis half a block away.
In short, Vicki's place was everything I could hope for and my best Airbnb experience yet. I highly recommend it!
I highly recommend this wonderful Urban Retreat. Vicki couldn't have been nicer and the bed was wonderfully comfortable.
It was a nice and calm stay at Vicki's place. I could walk to the university and there is a nice restaurant around a corner as well as a bike-rental.
Vicki was the perfect hostess. She met us upon our arrival, showed us our room,explained how things worked and then gave us room to go about our visit. She was responsive when we had a question and very flexible with our schedule. Our room was simple and straightforward and right on the mark for our needs. We really liked the neighborhood - great places to eat nearby with easy access to downtown Mnpls or St. Paul. We love urban residential neighborhoods and Vicki is living in a great one! Thanks much! We hope to be back soon!
