Why harry greenberg chose Whittier

Great place for families and anyone wanting to be at the center of it all- lakes, entertainment, convention center and Uptown restaurants and shopping. You don't really need a car here, especially since we provide free bikes for the duration of your stay!

What makes this apartment unique

We have a garage full of bikes that we loan out for free! Trail is 3 blocks away and lets you bike on a bike path without traffic.

Great neighborhood convenient to everything. Older home with character.

Loved walking, biking and just relaxing in the front room. A/C only in the bedrooms but ceiling fans kept house comfortable. Bikes & helmets provided by owner were high quality and a great city to bike.

Great location! Great host!

  • 4 of 5

Harry was a great host! We had an issue with the shower head and he fixed it the first day! He had three bikes for us to use and we had a wonderful time. The location is GREAT for seeing the city, several lakes nearby, several parks, and other sights.

Super quaint, spacious and accommodating place in a classic Uptown 2 flat. Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. Absolutely loved the vintage feel of the property and Harry was always just a phone call or text away if we needed anything. Knowing we were arriving pretty late, Harry even took the time to call us before check-in to make sure we were all set and were prepared to have a comfortable stay. Absolutely recommend - especially if you want to check out the Uptown neighborhood and have an easy commute to downtown. All the stars.

Perfect location, wonderful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Harry's flat and we love it. It is large and comfortable, and the buffet is stacked with Twin Cities information. We were attending our son's graduation, and needed the kitchen to prepare food for the party - it worked great! The sun porch (which can double as another sleeping room) was perfect for my other college son. There are plenty of great neighborhood walks in the area, and restaurants and coffee shops nearby. If you must have the sterility and soulless atmosphere of a hotel room, this is not for you. But if you love a charming, clean and well loved home with lots of room to spread out, this is your place. It's certainly our place!
