Our family-owned, renovated, 1-bedroom apt. is clean, quiet & spacious. Tucked away in a residential neighborhood, the apt. is located on the top floor of our house overlooking a park & the Mississippi River. Enjoy a sun-drenched living room, bed w/ goose down comforter, a full bath & kitchen & central air conditioning. We are near the U of MN, Augsburg U, and M Health Fairview Hospitals & Clinics. Our Airbnb was not available for over 1-year due to COVID, but we are back as of June 2021.

The space
Our historic home is uniquely located within the national, state, and city park systems on the only naturally occurring gorge of the Mississippi River. After 14-years successfully renting our apartment to university professors & musicians, we decided to renovate it in the summer of 2019 for Airbnb stays. As licensed Minneapolis landlords, our house is up to code and well-maintained. Our former tenants have described the apartment as a peaceful space to be productive and relax. Several books, dissertations, and music compositions have been written in this apartment!

This apartment is ideal for a writing retreat, a quiet space to work, or simply a place to relax. It is comfortable for 1-2 people and has a sofa bed in the living room. This is ideal if you're traveling with a colleague or friend and would each like your own sleeping arrangements. If you'd like more than 2 people to stay at any time, you must let us know BEFORE you book by sending us a message.

The living room: includes a desk, bookshelf, spacious closet (w/ umbrellas and cleaning supplies), sofa bed, and a new flat-screen, smart TV.

The eat-in kitchen: is fully stocked with dishes, flatware, cooking utensils, cookware, glasses, coffee, tea, and granola bars (if you are gluten free, let us know). It also has a toaster, microwave, coffee maker, and new dishwasher and fridge.

The bedroom: has a new queen-sized bed (as of 1/2/20) with a warm goose down comforter. There is also a full-length sized mirror and a table to store your toiletries. The closet includes an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, luggage rack, and extra blankets and towels.

The bathroom: has a sparkling clean tub and shower, soft Egyptian cotton towels, and a large medicine cabinet stocked with a few unopened travel sized toiletries. We recommend that you bring your own toiletries to stay COVID-19 safe.

Our Wifi is super fast and we have central air conditioning in each room.

We provide a self check-in and 24 hour access in the front or back doors of our house. There is one complimentary parking space in back and parking across the street is always free. The parking space is a typical size for an urban lot. If you are not used to city lots, it may seem small to you, but it is actually generous in size for a South Minneapolis residence.

We are available by phone/text during your stay. We will respect your privacy and safety during COVID-19.

We have blocked off dates in September 2021 onward because we would love to host a long-term stay (ideally for 4-12 months). If you are interested, please send us a message.

Location

Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

We are outdoor enthusiasts who purchased our house to be close to the Mississippi River road trails for running, walking, hiking & biking. Our neighborhood is geographically located in the center of Minneapolis. We are only a couple blocks away from the freeway exit, and most city streets will take you anywhere you need to go including to neighboring St. Paul (only a few miles away). Seward Community Co-op is w/in walking distance and has a hot bar, deli, coffee & bakery with gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian options. Check out our guidebook for more. We are LGBTQ & BIPOC friendly and want everyone to feel welcome in our space.

Although my partner Kari and I are newish Airbnb hosts, we are experienced, licensed landlords who have rented our apartments for over 14 years. We are also full-time parents and professionals in Minneapolis. Kari is a professor & I am a policy analyst. To destress, Kari cleans and organizes, which you will appreciate when you stay in our sparkling clean apartment. We take COVID-19 safety seriously; as of June 2021, our entire family will be fully vaccinated. We have blocked off dates in September 2021 onward because we would love to host a long-term stay (ideally for 4-12 months). If you are interested, please send me a message.
