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.

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!!!

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

This is a 2 story property tucked into a delightful Minneapolis neighborhood. The hosts live next door; so help is always close by. The house has everything you need to relax and enjoy yourself. We spent part of 1 crisp Fall day just sitting in the sun porch reading. On Saturday we had a little family <17 people> get together and it did not even feel crowded.

The basement beds are more for children as they were not comfortable for those in our group; but the upstairs beds were extremely comfortable. If I need to get back to Minneapolis in the future; it is very likely I will try to rent this property.

Thank you Greg for helping make our visit a success.

Spacious, well-kept historical home, in quiet, residential Minneapolis neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this home for 6 nights for the occasion of our daughter's wedding. It amply met our needs. The floor plan allowed for many communal meeting areas, with living room, formal dining room, weatherproofed porch, entertainment room, study and backyard with outside seating and barbeque capabilities. It is located in a quiet older, well-established residential part of Minneapolis, near shopping. A very pleasant bonus is that is located across the street from protected greenbelt trails, alongside a small waterway that feeds into a lake. The trails offer excellent exercise opportunities for walks or bike rides. Bikes are provided by the owners. We thoroughly enjoyed this property and would highly recommend it to others.

Location, location - walk to dinner, library, biking trails, grocery and more!!

  • 5 of 5

When 4 women can feel totally comfortable in a lovely suburban neighborhood, walk to dinner and grocery, you know you have picked the right VRBO!! The house was immaculate and the kitchen very well stocked - coffee, sugar, tea, salt/pepper. The dining table was our gathering place for chatter, puzzle and planning our days. We walked the trail in front of the house and watched the birds enjoying the green space.

I would recommend this house very highly.

Spacious enough for our family of 10 which included 4 boys ages 4-8.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful neighborhood! The house had everything we needed. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels, beds for everyone and close to the places we wanted to go. We would definitely choose this home on a return visit to the twin cities.
