About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House in Minneapolis. Completely Renovated Spring 2013


Before offering our vacation rentals for use, they each undergo a complete renovation and this interior renovation is now complete!!

This is a great house with comfortable spaces including two living rooms to accommodate a large group.


This house is spread out over the main level & the finished lower level (a nice way of saying basement!)


2 Bedrooms each with a Queen Bed

1 Full Bathroom stocked with towels, soap, toiletries, etc

Living Room with couch, chair, tables & flat screen tv (cable & wifi provided)

Dining Room with table seating for 6. An additional folding table & 4 folding chairs are also provided.

Kitchen that is fully stocked with cookware, serving ware, towels, soap, etc (We can accommodate most requests so please ask if you need anything at all!)


2 Bedrooms (Both with Queen Beds)

Living Room #2 with couch, tables & tv (cable & wifi)

Bathroom #2 fully stocked like bathroom #1

Laundry Room with complimentary Washer & Dryer


The back entry/exit walks out to a nice patio with a Picnic Table & Grill.


Located 2 blocks from the nearest bus stop that will take you pretty much anywhere you need to go.

Within 4 blocks of the house there is a bike rental kiosk where you can check-out a bike for the day, the week or just a couple of hours.

Also within 2 blocks are 2 great casual restaurants, Mannings Cafe & Sportys Pub & Grill.

**Sportys although well known for an awesome burger & top of this world cheese curds, it also has a couple good options for Vegetarians & those with Gluten sensitivities.

This house, like all of our vacation rentals, is located in close proximity (1-4 miles) to Downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota, the Historic St Anthony Main Riverfront District, The Guthrie, Live Theater, Live Music, Various Museums & of course a ton of Fabulous Dining & Entertainment Options.

If you have any special requests, please do not hesitate to ask....we love to eat out & explore MN & we are happy to offer any suggestions!

About Angie Toomey

We (Angie & Matt) are among the first VRBO owner/operators to begin operating vacation rentals in Minneapolis 6+ years ago. After having traveled many places & using VRBO frequently, we felt strongly that visitors to Minneapolis would appreciate the same amenities you can only find in a house when traveling here. We now operate 6 vacation rentals all which are seasonal, with the majority of our availability June 1st through August 28th of each year. We work hard to ensure all of our guests enjoy the vacation rentals that we offer & we continue to make upgrades yearly.

We are local & grew up in the area. We have lived in the neighborhood where all of our vacation rentals are located for 10+ years & we are happy to offer suggestions or answer any questions our guests have.

Angie Toomey purchased this house in 2012

Why Angie Toomey chose Como

This house was completely renovated in the Winter/Spring of 2013 so everything is brand new! The home is also centrally located with easy access to downtown Minneapolis, downtown St Paul, the University of MN, Mall of America, the MSP International Airport, etc

We (the owners & managers) live two blocks away so if there is anything you need, we are close by!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located, this property is fully updated and well-maintained. The beds are comfortable, and the linens are of good quality. There are plenty of fluffy towels and pillows. The kitchen is well stocked w/ plenty of dishes and silverware. I've stayed at many VRBO's and Airbnb's and this one stands out. The owner has considered every detail - down to shampoo, bath soap, hair blower, cleaning and laundry supplies. Highly recommended!

Beautifully updated, except for original, squeaky floors

  • 3 of 5

The home was beautifully updated. Two bed, one bath both levels. Sleeping for 10. We had two families of 4 meeting in Minnesota for four days. The sleeping for ten is interesting when there is no additional bedding... Anywhere. My children don't sleep well together. There is an extra cot, but again, no Bedding. The reason for the three stars, which is out of the owners Control, is the SEVERE floor creaking. We stayed in the portion. My brother in law, with two small children were upstairs and when they woke up in the morning, it sounded like there was a marching band performance above our heads. Needless to say, our teenager was less than impressed with the amount of sleep any of us received. I would also like to add, since none of the reviews I read added this: bring your own soap and shampoo to this property. Hotel soaps were supplied. I've never had that in a vrbo home. Again, home beautifully updated in a safe area. Just not what I'd hoped for.

Owner's Response: Hi Nicole, Thank you for the feedback! I am so sorry that the house didn't 100% meet your families needs. There are 4 queen beds & a fold out futon at the house. We do provide a cot upon request for extra sleeping and we always provide extra bedding with the cot so I apologize that you were unable to find it or if it was not there for you. Had you let us know that you needed bedding we would have been more than happy to provide it. Our welcome letter and property listing both state to please let us know if you need anything at all and we mean it! I literally live 2 minutes from this house so I would have had it there for you in a jiffy! As for the wood floors, I am so sorry it was loud for you but I am glad you enjoyed the home and neighborhood overall :) I do have a few other properties that are newer construction, so please check back on your return trip and hopefully we can get you into one of those with the New Wood Floors!! Thanks a ton! Please come back anytime. Angie

Sleeps 11 comfortably, 15 min from Mall of America

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the house, it was big enough for a family of 10. The only thing we had an issue with was not having televisions in every bedroom. The basement was really cold we had to close the vents just to be comfortable. The house was very nice and updated and we would stay again.

Clean, as described, and very conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, the location was ideal being close to the city, but with a quiet, safe, neighborhood feel. Loved the bunnies that visited every evening after 7:30. The basement provided an area for quiet and the upstairs was big enough for the five of us. Furniture not the most comfortable, but practical and went with the modern decor. Enjoyed walks/runs in the neighborhood and enjoyed the local eats just a few blocks away.
