About Greg & Doris

Greg and Doris have enjoyed hosting guests in their next-door rental home for the past 10 years. Avid gardeners and remodelers, they have poured great effort into making the house a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. Having done extensive international travel themselves, they understand the little touches that make for a comfortable visit.

Greg & Doris purchased this house in 1998

Why Greg & Doris chose Minneapolis

Having lived next door for over 30 years, we had considered buying the home for family member use at various times, but then had an opportunity when the neighbors were suddenly transferred out of town for business. We targeted the house specifically for international and corporate relocation families, and have developed some great continuing friendships with our guests. Being right next door, it has been very convenient for us to attend to the property and assist guests when needed.

What makes this house unique

Spacious home, great for wedding parties, family or friends reunions, business groups.

Mixture of comfortable modern ranch layout, with classic woodwork & coved ceilings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood. We definitely would like to use these accommodations down the road.

Minnesota Nice at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 women and a baby staying at this cozy house, and we never felt crowded. Beautiful neighborhood! Everyone had a bed and plenty of common space to gather for meals and conversation. The upstairs beds and pillows were very comfy. The downstairs beds were rather hard, so a few of the ladies had trouble sleeping. The hosts could not have been more kind or helpful! Greg was out immediately scooping snow and brushing off our cars after a big snowfall! They even extended our check out time due to the storm. Our group would return in a heart beat!

Roomy, home-like, super well stocked!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wish I could rent this home for the entire summer!! Terrific location, so easy to get downtown, airport, and suburbs. Home was much roomier and nicer inside than pix portrayed. Bed linens were great and we had room to spread out for 5 adults and infant. Parkway and neighborhood was lovely and unique even in December!! Such an easy and pleasant walk to Kowalski Grocery and liquor store too! Plenty of storage space in closets, so we were not tripping over our suitcases and travel gear. One of our best vrbo's ever!!!

Very Comfortable Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our needs while in the area visiting our daughter at the University of St. Thomas. We were only there one night and wanted a home rather than a hotel room to enjoy a more relaxing dinner with our family. This home is very spacious and accommodated our family of five staying the night plus our daughter and three of her friends for dinner. The kitchen is very well stocked. There was plenty of room for us all to easily have dinner around the table in the dining room. The home is spacious, very clean and in a nice area. The owners were easy to work with and allowed us a late check out the next day which we greatly appreciated. It was great to have two full bathrooms as well. Something not often found in older homes. Two of the four bedrooms are on the main level which was helpful for those that have difficulty with stairs. We will definitely stay again next time we are in the area.
