We have lived in the Twin Cities for many years and as avid field trippers, know the ins and outs of local eateries, watering holes, theatres, festivals and special events. We love hiking, biking, swimming, museums, movies etc and are delighted to share our information with you. We use VRBO ourselves and know first hand the importance of welcome hospitality, while honoring our guests privacy. We try to meet our guests at the airport, and are on site to help you with anything you might need.

All the natural wonders the Twin Cities has to offer are at your fingertips: we are tucked next to the city's Chain of Lakes, Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, many parks, Minnehaha Creek, an amazing waterfall and the Mississippi river. KingField boasts over 25+ restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, farmer's markets, boutiques, 'green' dry cleaners and upscale grocery stores. We are surrounded by some of Minneapolis' most fun-loving and lively neighborhoods.
Nearby are some of the world's most renowned museums: the Walker Art Center and adjoining Sculpture Garden, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Russian Museum, the Weissmann Museum and countless galleries and art lofts.
You'll be a few minutes away from freeway entrances and multiple bus lines connecting you to downtown -7 mins-, Twins Stadium- 7+ mins-, Uptown-7 mins- LynLake-3 mins-, Mall of America-15- mins, Saint Paul-15 minutes-and the airport-15 mins.

Car: Recommended

1/2 block to the 40th street Greenway to 26+ connected miles of multi use paths. Lake Harriet is just around the corner, connected to a peaceful bird and wildlife sanctuary. KingField boasts an impressive range of world restaurants- Spanish, Cuban, Vietnamese, Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern and Malaysian cuisines. We are a mile from Eat Street, an international smorgasbord of restaurants, a 20 minute walk to uptown with great shopping, art movie houses, terraces with great happy hours. We live near 5 Farmer's Markets- and not too far from the Saint Paul one! Two personal trainers -Thai Body Work and Pilates -live down our street, they're wonderful! There are a handful of trusted babysitters ready at a moment's notice. KingField borders fabulous Linden Hills, a charming small shops 'village' on the other side of Lake Harriet, Lyn/Lake, another great urban gem full of dozens of innovative restaurants, comedy/ improv club. Eat Street, name speaks for itself, a handful of blocks north from your apartment. Uptown, offers all of the above, plus two art movie houses. The aforementioned Grand Rounds bike path leads you to the Mississippi river, our unique Minnehaha waterfall fed by fast moving Minnehaha creek- all complemented by more restaurants!
