Central to Minneapolis and St. Paul, our 1923 duplex is stylish, clean, and efficient. The fresh and modern décor is themed with African art and retains the home’s older elements. The kitchen is furnished and efficient. The bedrooms accommodate suitcases. Business people will find an ergonomic computer work area. Enjoy the 'smart' 55” TV with soundbar. Shared bicycles for utility or for fun. Our management company is woman/veteran/locally/lgbtq-owned. We pay well and believe in living wages.
The layout of the apartment is unchanged from 1923. The kitchen does not open to the dining room, so the feeling is ‘cozy’, although, at 1056 feet2, the apartment is not particularly small. Some of the African art is special and quite rare. One piece is very rare.

The layout of the apartment is unchanged from 1923. The kitchen does not open to the dining room, so the feeling is ‘cozy’, although, at 1056 feet2, the apartment is not particularly small. Some of the African art is special and quite rare. One piece is very rare. In the kitchen, there is enough counter space and cookware to cook up a fancy meal. Chop up the vegies while sitting at the table/counter. There is seating there for three. The bedrooms are not at all cluttered. Guests will find plenty of places to charge smartphones in the bedrooms and elsewhere. Having the computer work area next to the TV enables people the option of easily streaming content from a laptop. Another option is to use the TV as a third external monitor. The soundbar has a Bluetooth input when it’s time for music. Laundry facilities are in the basement. The machines are not coin-operated. There is a countertop for folding clothes and a full-size ironing board.
We are in the process of remodeling the three-seasons porch that overlooks the back yard. It is presently off-limits. Last year, the garage was replaced. At the end of the season, we added a new tree and shrubbery, moved plants around, and established a place for a table and chairs. We plan to see continuous landscaping improvements throughout the warm season, but they will not affect access to the backyard. A privacy fence separates the back yard from the alley and the new bushes will add some privacy on the other side of the yards, also.
Leave the road warriors to their highways and live in a very nice place, a very short five-minute walk to the Green-Line, mid-way between the metro’s downtowns. In fact, it’s a five-minute walk to both the Green-Line and the A-Line, and bus routes 16, 21, 53, 84. Transit to and from both MSP terminals is cheap and easy. The sidewalks are fine for rolling luggage, weather permitting.
Our home is walk-ably close to wonderful ethnic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The Turf Club is just a four-minute walk, if you take the shortcut. Or use one of our bikes to find other fine destinations.
If you are in the mood to binge-watch Netflix and want food delivered, you will find your options to be superlative.

We enjoy meeting our guests whenever we can. Since we live upstairs, there is a good chance that we will meet you. But we also make it simple to arrive at your convenience and our presence is not required to host you. When we are away, our efficient and capable management company is based nearby and competently handles everything from reservations, as-needed services during your stay, unexpected issues or repairs, clean-up, and follow-up.
We are in Saint Paul’s District 11, usually called “Hamline Midway” or just ‘the Midway’.
Our immediate neighborhood is called ‘Little Africa’, due to an influx of African ethnic groups. This influx has generated many new businesses and we notice new energy and appreciate the fact that the city is demonstrating a commitment to revitalization in our neighborhood. It’s worth a walk down Snelling Avenue to view commissioned public art projects on the walls of businesses.
The mosaic designs honor local immigrants and tell the stories of the people, cultures and communities that define the area. The installations of four professional murals by four separate artists on the sides of primarily immigrant-owned businesses connect artists, business o
We have a crib of bicycles that we share. Use the bicycles to extend the range of public transit for work or pleasure.
The Green Line (train) runs every ten minutes, going into downtown Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Snelling Avenue carries typical transit buses plus the A-Line rapid bus that runs every ten minutes. It takes less than five minutes to walk to the A-Line and to the Green-Line. Additionally, these other bus routes are five-minutes or less away: 16, 21, 53, and 84.
