Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a family of world travelers, now living our travel dreams through our guests. We have two children, ages 11 and 9.

Why the Owner Chose St. Paul:
We bought this wonderful duplex after taking a year to travel with two very young children. We wanted to be near colleges (I grew up on a campus in California), with walking and biking opportunities (we bike every day we can). We still travel to visit family, and like being close to the airport, as well as both downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Walking to everything, easy bus access and immediate access to some of the best bicycling in the Twin Cities.
