Our home is a beautiful Victorian duplex in the center of the Twin Cities! We are close to EVERYTHING in Minneapolis and St. Paul -- restaurants, shops, parks, trails, libraries, etc. AND we are just two blocks away from public transit!

The space

Our place has all natural hardwood floors and beautiful large bay windows. EVERYONE who walks in to our home comments on the gorgeous light that flows in, as well as how open and inviting the space feels.

The master bedroom (queen bed) and attached bath have recently been renovated and have lots of storage space. The 2nd bedroom is a beautifully decorated family room. (Blow-up bed upon request.) The windows in the 2nd bedroom let in a ton of gorgeous light and is great for lounging around in during the day. It's also a great place for little kids, as the room is carpeted. This room can also easily fit a travel crib and/or pack n play, which we can set up for no extra charge.

Our kitchen is HUGE, and since our local co-op and liquor store are just a stone's throw away you can enjoy tasty local meals in the comfort of your own space. OR, if you'd rather eat out, there are several amazing options within 5 minutes walking distance!

The porch out front is perfect for drinks and conversation after a day of work or exploring the Cities, and out back is our charming backyard patio complete with twinkly lights, a chiminea, BBQ grill, and a playhouse for kids. (Oh, and across the street is the neighborhood playground, complete with all sports amenities.) All in all, our place is perfect for any kind of traveler!

Guest access

You will have access to our entire bottom floor with your own entryway. We will not be there when our guests are, but we will always be available for questions when needed.

Interaction with guests

In addition to our great space, you will have as little or as much interaction with us as you want. Our job is to make you feel like our home is your home!

Fresh sheets and linens will be provided.

Other things to note

All in all, our place really has it all for ANY kind of traveler -- students, professionals, families, and adventurers. We look at this experience as a true cultural exchange, and have really enjoyed becoming a part of the airbnb community!

We hope to meet you soon!

Jonna and family provided a wonderful experience in their beautiful home! The house is bright and clean with lots of space to make yourself comfortable. The location is very convinient and close to everything you might need. Jonna always responded promptly and is very friendly. The family were great hosts and provided us lots of little extras to make our stay in their home and city special. Definitely hope to stay here again someday! Our stay couldn't have been better!

Jonna made us feel very welcome right from the start - extremely friendly, gave us helpful answers to the few questions we had, and was eager to make sure we had a very comfortable and happy stay. The house was a great space with lots of sunlight. The second bedroom was perfect for our toddler, with both bed and trundle bed, and lots of toys she immediately loved. There was even an adorable family of chipmunks living in the backyard, which were also a big hit! There is a nice playground right across the street and the location is great - central and close to multiple highways making it easy to get anywhere. The house is on the older side, which meant both charm as well as older fixtures in the bathroom and kitchen. For us, the tradeoff was well worth it. We'd recommend to others!

The home was clean and inviting and in a nice neighborhood with a park right across the street. Teenager loved the wifi, toddler loved the toys. Cable TV with all the movie channels. The hosts were available and helpful. Kitchen is well stocked with spices if you plan on doing your own cooking. The backyard is fairly private and equipped with a grill and a nice patio set. Front porch is lovely too. A very pleasant stay in a wonderful location.

The front porch was perfect for watching all of the people playing at the park

We were greeted very warmly and made to feel so at home at Jonna and Peter's. The space was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated in a quiet, pretty location. Perfect for enjoying an end of day on our vacation.

We had a nice stay in Mpls/St. Paul. Our hosts were very responsive, hospitable and we felt like we had our own personal concierge. They added many personal touches and an welcome bottle of wine. The duplex was lovely, comfortable and had a lot of charm. We had plenty of room and were able to save money on meals by using the kitchen. We enjoyed the nice weather sitting on the porch overlooking the park. We didn't get a chance to use the grill or outside patio but perhaps next time. They had lots of information for us on the bus routes, light rail and where to go in the area. This was very helpful as we didn't rent a car. We were able to walk to a local co-op for groceries and a handful of restaurants. There is a small park across the street with tennis courts. My daughter was playing in a local tournament so this was very convenient. This was our first experience with airbnb.com and it was great. We also used uber for some of our transportation which we found inexpensive and easy to use. We will definitely use these services and stay here again.

We are a couple who LOVE to travel, have lived abroad (Ireland, Indonesia, & Japan), and don't want the fun to end just because we have kids. We're therefore looking at our hosting experience as a great way to meet cool, new people, AND have an excuse to travel! We also love live music, taking hikes, playing tennis, eating good (and spicy!) food, drinking libations, and making our kids laugh (and anyone else for that matter).
