2 BR, 1.5 Bath House, Sleeps 5 in beds with awesome access to everything
This cute two bedroom, 1.5 bath home provides ideal access to the best of the Twin Cities. St. Paul's Midway Neighborhood, located midway between downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul, provides the best of both cities...Light Rail and freeway access to everything, in a quiet, walkable, friendly neighborhood with plenty of attractions of its own.
This house is a six block walk to two light rail stations (Snelling Station and Hamline Station). It is also within walking distance of a supermarket, African grocery store, and a variety of restaurants including Chinese, Korean, Turkish, Ethiopian, and Thai. Saint Paul's legendary Turf Club is also easily walkable, with live music most nights. The neighborhood also offers decent local pizza joints, chain pizza, and several fast food offerings nearby. Groundswell, a great coffee shop/wine bar/restaurant is only two blocks away. There are also a Target and a Wal-Mart within walking distance.
The light rail provides easy access to both downtowns and almost every major sporting venue in the Twin Cities, including US Bank Stadium (Vikings Football), TCF Bank Stadium (Gopher Football), Target Field (Twins), Target Center (Lynx, Timberwolves), and the Xcel Energy Center (Wild). It is only a four block walk to Allianz Field (Minnesota United Football Club - opening in 2019).
You will also be located with convenient access to the Twin Cities array of colleges and universities. Take the light rail to the University of Minnesota's campuses, walk to Concordia or Hamline, or take the A-Line Rapid Transit to Macalester (or about a 1 mile walk).
The house provides two bedrooms and a small bathroom upstairs with a walk-in shower, one bedroom provides a queen bed, the other provides a full bed plus a twin bed.
There is a full kitchen, reasonably well equipped. If you need any special cooking utensils, please ask and I'll see if I can either add it or provide it during your stay. Note there is no dishwasher. We'll be happy to wash your last set of dishes after check-out.
A full laundry is provided in the unfinished basement.
The house comes with a two car detached garage, available for your use if desired. Otherwise, on-street parking is plentiful in this neighborhood.
The house is perfect for business travelers, with high-speed internet and a large desk with a monitor to plug your laptop into. Either downtown is about 25 minutes away via the light rail if you prefer not to drive.

Why Kimberly Hunter chose Union Park
We used to live in this house in the late 1990s, it was the first home we owned. It was beaten down by its last owner, and we wanted to restore it to even better condition than it was in when we lived in it. We think we have succeeded. The house has new carpet, new or refinished floors in the dining and bed rooms, a new boiler, all new furniture, new paint inside and out, new light fixtures, a new custom tiled shower, new and rebuilt windows, new siding on the front porch, new plumbing, and a new ceiling in the dining room and kitchen. We hope you will enjoy our new old house.

Super clean. Great place. Comfortable and quiet
You will want to go back again and again
My family and I traveled to Minnesota over Spring Break. My four children and I chose this property for all of it's comfort. The home was large enough for all of us to feel at home. The beds were very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. The TV in the living room was large and the dining table fit us all. It was also very nice to have a washer and dryer to use. The spacious mud room was great as well. It snowed our last day and I had to shovel which definitely reminded me of being at home. Some downsides to the home are no bathtub, the shower drains very slowly, the living room could use more seating, (maybe a large sectional or another club chair), and a TV in the bedrooms would be a nice addition. The location was good. Grand St. offers many dining options and there are plenty of stores around the home. It took us about 15-20 minutes to get to the mall. Overall our stay was fabulous and the owner was very nice and welcoming.
Thanks Michelle! I appreciate the tip about the shower, as I had not noticed it, so now it is fixed. I am on the lookout seating to add to the living room that goes with the existing furniture. Glad you enjoyed your stay!
Green guest house
This was my first time using vrbo Kimberly was very helpful and was easy to get ahold of it was convenient to have them next door. Green guest house was close to metro station and stores. They had all amenities need for a trip away from home. T.v. only had local channels and you could use netflix, hulu ect. Overall experience was good we would rent with them again
Loved it. Very cute and updated.
Our kids loved the house! We loved the decor, space, and location! Will look this property up again! So much better then a hotel!
