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 12 and 9.

Why the Owner Chose Merriam Park West, Saint Paul, MN, USA:
Our location is central to everything in the Twin Cities and we love being near the many colleges/universities. My favorite architectural feature is the built in woodwork, hence, the name Twin Arches. Come experience St. Paul gathering under the twin arches which are again under the twin arches of the second floor. Take a step back in history! 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 Saint Paul and Minneapolis.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Flexibility of multiple rental options: First Floor Two Bedroom OR Second Floor Three Bedroom OR BOTH levels combined for five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Gather your friends and family together! Walking to everything, easy bus access and immediate access to some of the best bicycling in the Twin Cities.
