About Alex Hansen

I grew up in a family that rented properties and love providing people a great place to stay. I bought my first Duplex in 1994 and haven't looked back. I only purchase quality houses in great neighborhoods. Rest assured that you will enjoy staying here.

Alex Hansen purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Alex Hansen chose Calhoun Isles

I love to cook and entertain and lived in this apartment for many years before listing it as a vacation rental. I love the high end finishes and quality furnishings. It has been completely renovated and ready for you to enjoy!

What makes this apartment unique

The unit has a very private back yard, yet is only one mile from the Minneapolis Convention Center and both Downtown and Uptown.

Nice apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and in good condition. It looks like a very nice area. It was very cold and snowy when we were there so timing wasn't right to walk anywhere. We didn't have any issue parking our rental car on the street close to the apartment. Restaurants were an easy 2 miles away. It was nice having new appliances available. Basic kitchen items were provided although we would have liked a few more things (kitchen towels, paper towels or napkins). Overall it was quiet although we would hear people walking in the apartment above. The owner was responsive and we appreciated staying in his lovely place.

happy period

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the days that we stay in, and the sceney is nice though it is full of snow, the nearby lake is iced frozen, we really love viewing them. The daily life is quite convenient. No matter we met any problem, the owner reponsed quickly and friendly. A period of rich and deep memory in MN for us

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious and well maintained property. The owner is very responsive and addresses any issues immediately. One of its best features also has a little downside. It is set into a bluff. While this makes for great views and some privacy, it means you do have to climb some stairs even though it is the first floor of a duplex. Not a problem unless you have mobility issues.
