About Angie Toomey

We started purchasing homes near downtown Minneapolis and the University of MN as an investment to rent out long term. Having been frequent travelers and users of VRBO, we decided to see if it would work in Minneapolis and were immediately successful. We like to think that our excellent renovation and customer service skills are the reason for the great success...not just because we were the first in Minneapolis to offer vacation rentals :)

Angie Toomey purchased this house in 2007

Why Angie Toomey chose Minneapolis

We have other rental property in the area and live in the same neighborhood as well. In addition to that, Minneapolis is a very popular place ot visit during the summer months and being so close to downtown and great attractions, this home is meant for summer vacationers!

What makes this house unique

Skyline views, quality linens, great local owners, super duper clean accomodations and extremely convenient location.

Great space for adults and older children

  • 4 of 5

The house was really nice, clean, and in a very convenient area. It's a nice neighborhood with Van Cleve Park a couple blocks away. There are stores nearby, too. We actually got 2 SUVs and a car in the parking area. The traffic is noisy so I recommend bringing earplugs. Also the acoustics in the home are pretty bad so if you have small children who need naps and must go to bed early, it's tough.

Owner's Response: Thank you for booking one of our homes for your stay in Minneapolis! I am glad that you were able to park all of your vehicles in the back and that you enjoyed the neighborhood, the park and the convenience to everything the area has to offer. I am bummed to hear that you did not have a 5 star experience --4 is pretty good but we strive for 5 with every guest and home!! I have definitely taken the suggested room for improvement to heart and will invest in some rugs and more wall hangings to help absorb some of the sound you were bothered by. We have honestly never had a complaint about noise/acoustics in the past - but we definitely value your feedback! We hope to have you back and get that 5th star on your next visit. Thanks again for booking one of our MPLSvr homes. Best Angie, Matt & the Crew

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and very welcoming with its large common area. I was not the first to arrive, but the host met my friends and even offered to help them get supplies before we arrived with the rental cars. Great experience!

Very nice and spacious living space

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property, spacious. Can easily fit more than 6 people. The space is also close to the freeway which is great. My only issue is that the upstairs bathroom was clogged. We let the renters know about the issue and they came out to fix it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Ellen! We are so sorry that the shower clogged on you but glad we could come by ASAP to get it working. We have since replaced some major components so that should not happen again! We are glad that you enjoyed the convenient location! We agree that it is so easy to get around from the house - by foot or car, you can't go wrong!! Best Angie

Great place !

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent house to stay in. After a days activities it has plenty of space to stretch out in. The kitchen counter is large, we had six adults around it, could have fitted a couple more in easily.

The house is as described on the VRBO site well maintained clean and obviously cared for.

The back yard has a privacy fence around it, sitting in the yard hard to believe you are in a city environment !

Would not hesitate to advise staying in this house to anyone.

Have rented from the owners before they are welcoming and extremely helpful, answering any questions before you go. Lovely views of the Minneapolis skyline from the front of the house. bus routes are within easy walking distance, took one to see the Vikings play.

Would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming and staying at another one of our vacation rentals in Minneapolis!! You will have to stay at our newest vacation rental home the next time! I came to take care of the yard and had the opportunity to meet your lovely parents as they were enjoying their books on the back patio -- after visiting the Waffle Bar down the street of course! --- I only regret that I missed seeing you, Alan and the kids!! I guess that means your return visit will have to be sooner! Best, Angie, Matt & the Crew
