Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Bill!

Thank you Bill for a great stay in your capital place home! If there were any problems Bill was there in a jiffy! This house is located in a lovely neighborhood & is close to the park with bike trails that lead right down town! There is only one bathroom, but actually worked out well with 4 ladies & two guys! Got great use out of the grill in the back. Cheers Bill

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Great home in a beautiful location! We had 4 adults and 3 children and we all slept comfortable. Back yard has a grill with a nice sitting area for your entertainment. Children loved the upstairs for there owen privacy. The kitchen came fully equipped with all the dishes and gadgets you would use for meals. Since there is no washer and dryer, I strongly suggest using the laundry mat on Frost. Its only 3 miles from the house and is very clean. We had a awful storm during our stay, and some of the breakers went out. We called the owener and he had someone there within hours. Very nice people! We will definitely be back next year! Thanks again!

The area is the best thing to this rental

  • 2 of 5

This little house had nice landscaping, new paint and plumbing fixtures inside and was very clean. I'd read a previous Reviewer's comments about the small bathroom. My husband and I are both XL size and neither of us would recommend this rental for anyone our size or bigger because the area between the tub/toilet/sink is about the size of airplane's bathroom and very awkward to use. Overall, for the money we spent on this rental, compared to others I checked out in the Minneapolis/St Paul area, it did fit our needs but it's the least-enjoyed VRBO we've ever stayed at with regard to the place itself. However, Phelan Park is 3-4 blocks away and should be a "Must See" on anyone's list of things to do while in Minneapolis if they like the outdoors, no matter where they stay! We also enjoyed the neighborhood this VRBO is located in, seeing Winnehaha Falls and downtown Minneaplis. This house's location was only a 20-minute drive to downtown Minneapolis or south Minneapolis (Egan), which is where we watched an adult slow-pitch softball world series tournament at, which was what brought us to the Twin Cities.

Owner's Response: Capital Getaway is a 3 bedroom home with a full bath that is approx 6 X 8 that includs a tub and shower and a second full bath that is 10 X 12 . For XL sized people this could be perceived as small; they could have used the larger bath. The characterization of the bath as "an airplane size" is not accurate for Normal size people. Other than one of the two baths all other rooms are accommodating and the price and location make this a very attractive vacation home. The home is well kept and clean and only minutes from all Twin Cities attractions.

Cozy Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this rental esecially for a family or those wanting to have a living/dining area.This was a cozy three bedroom place. Two beds are double size downstairs. Two twins upstairs (note steep stairs, low ceilings)- best for kids. We had a well stocked kitchen and use of laundry. The bathroom is very small. It wasn't a problem for us but if you were very large, I think it would be uncomfortably small. We rented a car and directions were easy to all that the Twin Cities offered. Everything was 8-20 min away, easy drives. Door code entry made getting in and out easy. Residential neighborhood was clean, quaint, and quiet. The local grocery was a bit ghetto but we had great experiences everywhere else. The local park was a beautiful walk and the lake was crystal clear in Sept., but too cold to swim. There were many parks and playgrounds over short drives.

From here we went to the airport, Children's museum, science center, Minehaha Falls, Como Park, Stillwater, Hudson- St. Croix River, Camrose Hill, local farms, Walker Sculpture Garden, Lake Calhoun, Mississippi River- St. Anthony's Main.

Clean Comfortable and Perfectly Located

  • 5 of 5

This well-maintained house made a great home away from home for my family of 4 adults. In town for a wedding, and sight-seeing , we especially appreciated having separate bedrooms with our own space and our own closets. The bathroom is definitely a one -person-at-a-time bathroom, but all other rooms are spacious and full of natural light because of all the windows- delightful!The large living room, has plenty of room to spread out and the kitchen and dining area are fully equipped with all you need.The backyard chairs and grill made us feel right at home. It is in a quiet and safe neighborhood, so if you are a late night group planning a loud party this is not your place. We greatly appreciated how easy it was to find and return to. Great location.

Just what we expected

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home, and very safe in this house. Everything was convenient. Great location in St. Paul. We had some last minute changes, and the owner was very understanding and worked with us. This house was very clean and modern...well taken care of! We will stay again if come to the area. Would absolutely recommend this house to a friend/relative.
