About Jeanine and John Farrell

Jeanine is from Amsterdam, John from Winnipeg. We met on a Greyhound bus to Minneapolis and have been married for forty years. We love hosting people from around the world in our home apartment and two other properties, and we hope to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

Jeanine and John Farrell purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jeanine and John Farrell chose Harrison

We fell in love with the Bryn Mawr/Harrison neighborhood, so close to the Minneapolis Park system's crown jewel, Wirth Park. Minutes from downtown and the Farmers Market, great restaurants and coffee shops, movie theaters, live theater--and soon, down the street, Utepils Brewery!

What makes this apartment unique

This home has it all, surrounded by nature, immediate park access, lakes nearby, winter wonderland activities, super relaxed and quiet. You will love it here!

We truly enjoyed our stay. The home was clean, decorated nicely, had everything we needed, loved the view on the balcony overlooking a park -- close to downtown. We would highly recommend this home. We hope to return here someday. Thank you to the owners. Nancy and Dave Parker, Colorado

As cozy as home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay! This rental has everything you need and more! It made travel with a family sooo much more enjoyable than a limited space hotel room. The bedrooms are so inviting, with comfy beds. The washing machine & dryer were so convenient for traveling with a family. The area was so charming - check out Cuppa Java AND the adorable gift store next door as well as Wirth park. The owners were welcoming & helpful, especially with directions. Even with the construction, the location is a quick ride to the University & downtown area.

We found this place to be very cozy and comfortable. It was very accessible to the entire city. We were very happy.. Most neighbors were extremely friendly, especially the ones who owned dogs.

Nice touches and quick repair

We really enjoyed the extra touches like welcome flowers and chocolate, and it's a lovely space. There was a problem with the hot water and the owners responded immediately and fixed it right away. Thanks!
