                                          Wonderful property awaits

                                          This house worked wonderfully for my family. We were six adults and 6 month old baby. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to cook and there was a Whole Foods near by. The hardwood floor was beautiful and the bathrooms were very clean. Dishwasher worked perfect too. The oven was gas and frozen pizzas cook great! The entertainment was cable TV with all the standard cable networks. We found the beds to be very comfortable and the house was well heated during an extended Minnesota cold snap. Nancy was easy to contact and very responsive. This would be a great place in the summer too or even state fair time.

There is nothing like a White Christmas, as long as you have a good heat system! I look forward to having you again. We already have a high chair at the house, to accommodate your youngest!

                                          Loved this place!

                                          Clean, modern, lots of parking and the location was easy to get anywhere! Owner was very cool. You won’t be disappointed. Stay here.

                                          This house was exactly what was shown in the pictures. We were 7 adults and a three year old

                                          Lovely baths with heated floors. Nicely appointed kitchen. Comfortable chairs and beds. Walking distance to Starbucks for the New York Times. We shopped at the super target on university to avoid the parking at Whole Foods and we're delighted with the selection including an array of gluten free breads. Who knew! We'd happily return - especially since it's within an easy walk of my daughter's place.

                                          A lovely home away from home

                                          The house was perfect for our stay. We were in town for a small family reunion. It was so nice to have 3 rooms with queen beds, hard to find it seems, and another room with bunk beds for the kids. The décor is beautiful and everything in the house very clean! There were plenty of towels and blankets and seating for all of our family. Also, plenty of convenient parking. I have to say the comfort of the house helped us really enjoy family time. And Nancy was always quick to respond to any questions we had. We will be back!

                                          We were very pleased with the immaculate look of the property as well as the quality appliances, furniture, mattresses, bedding, and towels. The property is well cared for, roomy, and comfortable. We had eight people in our group. There was space for everyone, even around the table when we used the four nice folding chairs from the closet. Loved the front porch. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy though. One morning we walked to the gas station around the corner and there was a homeless person sleeping on the steps in front of the house across the street. We will consider staying there again.

                                          Merriam Park, Saint Paul, MN, USA

                                          Take a walk to the end of the block, to get your mojo on at Starbucks. Or walk a few more blocks to the coffee bar or juice bar at Whole Foods, which opened in 2016. Great food is found at Whole Foods, which is complete with a bar/restaurant, or across the street at O'Gara's or the Neighborhood Cafe.
