We are a family of world travelers, now living our travel dreams through our guests.
Amber purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Amber chose Union Park
Our location is central to everything in the Twin Cities and we love being near the many colleges/universities. My favorite architectural feature is the built in woodwork, hence, the name Twin Arches. Come experience St. Paul gathering under the twin arches which are again under the twin arches of the second floor. Take a step back in history! Preserving the old and providing the new. We wanted to be near colleges (I grew up on a campus in California), with walking and biking opportunities (we bike every day we can). We still travel to visit family, and like being close to the airport, as well as both downtown Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
What makes this Condo unique
Gather your friends and family together! Walking to everything, easy bus access and immediate access to some of the best bicycling in the Twin Cities.

Great place to stay, friendly and warm.
Don't do reviews very often. My job takes me.everywhere and was nice not staying in a hotel for once. Very Homey warm and friendly atmosphere. Tons of stuff to do within walking distance. Location was awesome. Amber went above and beyond our expectations.to make us comfortable. Even put in a larger bed so we would be more comfortable. Would stay here again if i make it to rhe area and if its available. Thanks Amber
The home was very charming and inviting. We instantly felt at home.
The home was warm, inviting, and very comfortable. Lots of original 1923 charm from the built-ins to the windows. Location was very convenient to stores, parks, freeways. Perhaps it's just the Twin Cities, but everything is so close! The neighborhood was delightful and felt very safe.
Amber met us at the door and was incredibly kind and accommodating. Upon entering, our 5yo found the kids toys and went right to work playing, allowing us to unpack and settle in. There was plenty of room for our family of four. Each child had their own room and a Pack-N-Play fit fine in one for our youngest. The kitchen was well stocked with the essentials which was handy as we prefer to cook. There were air conditioning units in each room, so grateful for that during our stay.
Parking was easy on the street, laundry was available, and there were even beach toys for us to use. Overall, we were very pleased and would love to return. Thank you, Amber, for making our visit so wonderful.
Comfortable and Beautiful
5 adults stayed at this property for a curling tournament in St Paul and we were very pleased with this place. The unit is huge with plenty of seating in the common areas. The dining room has seating for 7. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of towels. The kitchen is fantastic with everything you need to cook anything you want. The knifes are sharp and there is even food storage containers for your leftovers. Parking out front was easy with plenty of spaces available. The location is great for easy access to see the city. We will not hesitate to stay here in the future.
Charming, spacious and convenient
We (family of 5) stayed at Twin Aches while visiting family in St. Paul. Conveniently located in a quiet, safe neighborhood; easy walking distance to coffee shop and pizza restaurant on Grand; St. Thomas; and the Mississippi River Boulevard/walking path. The apartment was larger than we expected, clean, and quiet. We thought our flight might be affected by the Delta cancellations, and Amber was flexible in waiting to hear from us and offering us a discounted price for an additional night (luckily our flight wasn't affected). I would recommend this property to any groups-families or friends. The bedrooms are not large, but the living room and dining room are very spacious so there is plenty of space for several people.
Our family spent three nights here, and would definitely come back. Everything was very clean, there was plenty of space for us to spread out, the A/C helped everyone sleep well, and Amber even brought out a bunch of toys for the kids. It was a easy to get to cafes or restaurants, and the neighborhood was nice to just stroll around. Having Netflix on the tv was nice too. Thanks, Amber!
The Gathering Place is a perfect name for this wonderful home!
Our family was blessed to recently spend 5 nights at this home rental. We rented both levels. We had other relatives join us for dinner two evenings- there was plenty of room for all of us to eat, visit and enjoy our time together. We enjoyed visiting the Children's Muesum, The Minnesota RollerGirls WFTDA, Cafe Latte....
This rental feels like a wonderful place to come home to. Our 3 1/2 son enjoyed all of the toys - including his favorite the train set.
Thank you Amber for making this rental available.
