About the property

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 Minneapolis campus, 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 Midway

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.

Green guest house

  • 4 of 5

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

So convenient to both Minneapolis and St Paul

  • 5 of 5

The owners helped us with any questions we had, and all rooms are supplied with all we needed during our visit. So easy to walk 3 blocks to the light rail train that can get you to both downtown areas as well as a quick transfer to the other train to get to the Mall of America.

We would definitely stay here again.
