Beautiful, quiet stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location on wooded lot, close to parks but not too far from civilization and downtown. We saw lots of wildlife in the backyard from the beautiful sunroom including a family of whitetail deer. Thank you!

Private, Spacious & Comfortable...

  • 5 of 5

Located in a very quiet residential neighborhood this home is very comfortable and has great living space. My 2 friends and I used it as a watercolor retreat, so the sunroom became our favorite room. It was flooded with natural light on 3 sides, a huge table, comfy sofas, & large TV. We were fortunate to watch at least 9 deer in the wooded areas behind the home, that were ating and lounging about! That alone made the house unique.. The deck off the sun room has plenty of chairs & gas grill. In warmer weather, it would be a great place for coffee in the morning or grilling st night. In the living room was an inviting wood burning fireplace and large dining table. The kitchen is large & has basically everything needed .... more so than most rentals.

John, the owner, was extremely cordial and made the arrangements easy. We went in March, but when the trees in the back are "leafed" out, the back must be even more private and special. We enjoyed our stay there & would definitely recommend it!!

Excellent, quiet suburban home

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the nicest we have rented. I stayed here with my daughter (15), wife, and parents (80+). There are three bedrooms, and one has a shower stall that is suitable for older people. There are no stairs in the living space, and it is easily accessible from outside. It is a large space and has a fully stocked kitchen with an island, and dining table in the kitchen. There is a large dining room/living room space, and yet another room with two couches, chair, TV, and another large table--this room has windows on three sides that look out over a small forested area in the middle of the subdivision. Suburban wildlife such as white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and squirrels were present in early December. The WiFi works fine, although you need to look on the back of the typed instruction sheet to find the actual password (no space, BTW). First priority for the 15 year old, right? This is a very quiet location, and I live in Montana so I know quiet.

This is probably the least formal VRBO we have rented. There were personal photos and memorabilia throughout the house, and the fully stocked garage (i.e. looks like my garage) was open to allow access to the trash and recycling. Basically, it feels like you are house-sitting at a friend's house who knows you and trusts you. John, the owner, called me the first full day we were there to let me know he was working in the downstairs apartment, in case we saw someone coming and going. He is a friendly person and asked if we needed anything.

We recommend this property, and we would stay here again if we are in the Minneapolis area.

Cute neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights over MEA break. Enjoyed the location, close drive to most things we were doing entertainment wise. Favorite part was the sunroom, my daughter did her college homework at the table while we relaxed and watched tv. Found the kitchen to be under stocked. Needed a large bowl but only could find a flimsy plastic one with a crack in it. Only had a 1 cup measuring cup for measuring ingredients. Never found a dish towel for drying dishes, used a bathroom hand towel. We struggled to get the Wiifii to work and finally gave up. Did find it weird upon leaving that they wanted us to tip the cleaning people. Overall a great weekend!

Owner's Response: This guest was the kind that gives short term rentals a bad name. She came with some attitude and booked a 6 person stay but then suddenly had 5 vehicles overnight one of which was a motorcycle. I am extremely responsive to guests needs and told her to text me if she needed anything but I never heard any requests. I didn't charge her a clean fee and she was still too cheap to tip the cleaners. It's unfortunate that but rare that you get these kinds but it's part of the business.

Car: recommended

Located in the nice, lively MSP suburb of Eden Prairie (EP). This city was ranked among Top 25 'Best Places to Live' in nation and among the 5 other Minnesota cities was number 1. Within the city is excellent shopping, tons of restaurants, beaches, parks, golf courses, well maintained bike/walk trails, movie theater, and metro station with easy access to St. Paul/Minneapolis and other cities in the metro.

Within a 20-minute drive are theme parks, casinos, ski hills, more golf, additional shopping (Mall of America! Among many other options), water parks, pools, additional beaches, and the uptown/downtown Minneapolis scene... The list goes on!

Located close to two major highways in Eden Prairie on the boarder of Minnetonka, Edina, and Chanhassen.
