The space

NOTE we have links to ALL 30+ of our listings on this website at the end of this description! (Airbnb used to provide that, but changed their format...)

We had fun planning the decor in this space. It's on the garden level, so why not go crazy?

Your vacation or business retreat has parking a few feet from your door. This six-unit building is owned by your hosts, with long term tenants screened by them.

Full Housekeeping very large studio apartment. It Sleeps two on King Size bed in Bedroom Area, Four on two Convertible inner-spring full size futon sofas in Living Area.

Kitchen with available seating for six.

This is a diverse melting pot neighborhood "small town in the city". Very convenient location, well-equipped kitchen.

Exceptional value!

You can walk to everything, this unit is at the downtown of a small town that turned into a suburb.

Also an express and regular bus stop transit hub for five bus lines is one half block away! (See list of bus routes below.)

Grocery, Drug Store, Dollar Stores, Convenience Stores all are within three blocks.

Movie Theater, Bowling Alley, Pool Hall, Library, Medical Clinic, Parks and Churches all within three blocks.

You are even walking distance to parks, including a golf course!

Near Downtown Minneapolis. Easy North Suburban access. At the edge of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Just a few miles from University of Minnesota.

Near all the arts and cultural amenities that the Minneapolis area offers.

Just 23 miles from the Airport and Mall of America, four miles north of Downtown Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota. Two miles south of the intersection of Interstate 694 and Central Avenue.

Coin Laundry one block away. (Long term rental can have access to coin laundry in building.)

We want to emphasize the accommodations are cozy, but fully appointed. The unit and decorating is quite eclectic / arty, which is why we use the term "Bohemian" to describe it.

RESTAURANT NOTE: You can look up restaurants that use an independent DELIVERY service, you have your own room service!

Scott & Jenna do not live in the building, but are always available by cell phone in case of emergency. (We have been property managers for over ten years, and have helped people in just about every situation!) '


We always reserve here when people find us here, but if you want to search our number and call, it can be easier to go through options that way.

(We have been on Airbnb a long time... did you know Airbnb used to facilitate phone calls between guests and hosts? We would dial Airbnb, and get connected through their system. Times change... *sigh*)

We do NOT have to send it to the city, and frankly we don't care... but it is paperwork we have to do and because it is mandated by the city we are allowed to place it here as a requirement which Airbnb will enforce.

Jenna and Scott were quick to offer a substitute room when the one I had requested was already booked. It was located a few blocks from a restaurant my daughter was going to be celebrating her 40th birthday - perfect. Older building. Bed comfy - galley kitchen and freshly painted bathroom had new towels. Because of location and ease, will use again if coming to visit with friends! Thank you ; )

Scott met me when I checked in and was flexible with my check in/out times, which I really appreciated. The neighborhood is simple but definitely felt safe, along with easy parking behind the building. The unit is definitely a basement space that was converted into an apartment. It is spacious and meets the essential needs of an apartment, but not much more than that. We appreciated the cable and big screen TV.

Response from Scott & Jenna:
Thanks for staying Scott! We are glad you liked the unit, and sorry that you did not like the location-- a lot of people like being one block from the main drag, with many restaurants. Thanks for your suggestions... Hope we can help you out again sometime! Scott and Jenna

The host canceled this reservation 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Scott & Jenna User Profile
Response from Scott & Jenna:
We very rarely cancel a reservation. We are working hard to make sure that does not happen. We purchased software to update our calendars on all 30+ websites we are listing on, including our own, but unfortunately, it is not working correctly. This winter / slow season we are going to try again. In the meantime, we answer the phone 84 hours a week, and respond to emails as promptly as possible. Old timers know that Airbnb used to facilitate Internet based anonymous phone calls, but have stopped doing that. We are happy to chat by phone or email with anyone, and work to respond as promptly as possible.

The basement studio was as expected. Jenna left a note on the door leading into the complex and the unit, making it very easy to find the right spot. Jenna and Scott were quick to respond to questions or issues. The one advice I would give to future stayers, is if you are expecting the target gift card noted in the description, you should tell them up front. I didn't receive one.

Response from Scott & Jenna:
Thanks for the review Jacob. We can't give you a card if you don't give us a copy of your receipt for our tax records, and we are waiting for that to mail it to you! :-/ We will contact you directly to get that. Scott and Jenna

Fabulous hosts and very responsive to questions and concerns. The apartment has a roomy kitchen with lots of dishes. The water pressure was fine in the bathroom. The location is very close to the #10 bus, which is high frequency. Altogether a wonderful stay and would do it all again!

Response from Scott & Jenna:
Thanks for staying with us, Suzanna! You only needed the #10, but there are actually five bus routes within two blocks of this building! Thanks for staying, hope we can help you in the future! S&J

I didn't get to meet Jenna but Scott was a wonderful host. Very helpful and easy to work with. I look forward to staying with them again! The space was very roomy and the kitchen was great. Shower is dark and a little small, but overall a great stay in a safe neighborhood!

Scott & Jenna User Profile

Scott & Jenna don't get much time for traveling lately! We have over two dozen different properties and unit configurations to accommodate just about any size group for Airbnb travelers! (Look them all up in one place clicking on our picture to access our profile, then see "View All Listings" on the left side). All of our spaces are private individual units. Everything from one room studios to single family homes to an apartment building where we could host 50 people at once! (We own the whole place! Well, along with the bank!)

We very much enjoy helping others make the most of their visits to Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Lake Minnetonka area of our beautiful state, Minnesota.

When we travel, we like warm places when Minnesota is cold... Cali, Hawaii, Florida. But family ties take us to places like North Dakota and Ohio, too.

We like contrasts, Jenna loves food that wakes up your taste buds and Scott thinks cream of mushroom soup is a little spicy!

We especially enjoy the cultural scene in the Twin Cities area. More people per capita attend plays here than Manhattan! Modern dance is another one of our favorite "evenings out", and the music scene here is always lively -- from folk to rock and everything in between (one of us has an interesting point of view, having been a deejay at the club where Prince filmed Purple Rain).

People sometimes ask how we ended up doing this... it boils down to a very aggressive real estate agent! :-) Plus, we are both down-sized refugees from Corporate America. We like having our guests as bosses, instead of (some of) the guys and gals in the corner office that we worked for!

If you want to learn more about the area to make the most of your trip, we are happy to help. But we will never be intrusive. We try to greet in person, but can't always manage it with too many people arriving at the same time, or an emergency at one of the spaces.

However, we are always available by email and phone and emergency phone. We ask people to think of us as the front desk of the hotel.

If there is anything (we want to emphasize it) please get ahold of us if there is a challenge! There is nothing worse to us than hearing of a problem in a review, when we never heard it from the guest while they were here! Don't be shy!

Thanks for reading.

Scott and Jenna
