About Alex Hansen

I grew up in a family that rented properties and love providing people a great place to stay. I bought my first Duplex in 1994 and haven't looked back. I only purchase quality houses in great neighborhoods. Rest assured that you will enjoy staying here.

Alex Hansen purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Alex Hansen chose Minneapolis

I love to cook and entertain and lived in this apartment for ten years before listing it as a vacation rental. I love the high end finishes and quality furnishings. It has been completely renovated and ready for you to enjoy!

What makes this apartment unique

The unit has a new hot-tub and has a very private back yard, yet is only one mile from the Minneapolis Convention Center and both Downtown and Uptown.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Alex was great to work with especially as we were doing an extended stay in the dead of winter. The house was comfy & warm. A little sparsely appointed especially in the kitchen but this was only noticeable as we stayed for 6 weeks. The area was perfect for walking & easily finding restaurants. The new Eskar Grove at the Walker was our favorite.

Totally great place!

  • 5 of 5

We have family in Minnesota and have been visiting them over the past 35 years. I so regret it took this long to discover a place like this; spacious, beautiful, well maintained and conveniently located to accommodate our family. But better late than never! Our grandchildren called this place "our Minnesota house"! 😂򐠮 It provided every bit of comfort, warmth and amenities our family needed during our weeks stay. Alex was a pleasure to work with as well.

Great Location, Nice layout

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a great place. We had six women staying here. There was plenty of space for relaxing and sleeping (2/bed and 1 each on couches.) The hot tub in the back yard was really nice. Back yard felt very private and serene, you wouldn't know you were in the city. The living space was very well laid out for cooking and socializing. Main living space was very bright and open. The location was fantastic. It felt very safe. We walked to downtown Minneapolis in about 15 minutes. We took an Uber home and it was less than $6. We stayed in May 2016. Nearby roads are under major construction so plan extra travel time if you are driving. If not for construction, it would have been very easy to get on/off major highways to get around the metro.

Some minor things were in need of repair -- not all features of the really cool stove worked and the shower handle felt like it was going to fall off when we turned it hard enough to get water. There was a big leak in the pipes under the sink (water gushing on the kitchen floor when we used the sink) but Alex fixed it the next day. He was very responsive to our questions.

I would absolutely stay here again or recommend this place.

Great location and rental. Easy access to all interstates. Fantastic neighborhood w/ great walks.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice ! Kitchen area and appliances almost makes you want to stay in if it were not for the convenient location to great eating places and downtown Minneapolis. We had one request of the owner for additional reading lamps which was promptly fulfilled. The TV is easy to operate and has multiple channels, Netflix and DVR for recording. Beds are comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. Great experience here and would definitely request this location for our next extended visit to the Cities.

Great Location, Great Owner, Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Minneapolis apartment hunting with our son who just got relocated to the MSP area. We contacted the owner and he replied within minutes. The house is in a prime location, minutes from the Uptown area and Downtown Minneapolis. The apartment is the upstairs portion of the house, with two separately rented apartments downstairs.

The upsides: the very responsive owner, the home's location, the kitchen is awesome! There's also a nice big deck and a hot tub (which we didn't use because it was really cooooold outside) . There's also a nice big TV with a DVR in the living room and a working gas fireplace. The bathroom floor is heated which is really, really nice! And lastly there is a nice desk/work station if you have to work while you're there.

The downsides (which were by no means a negative but just a matter of full disclosure): It's sparsely decorated--no curtains (there were blinds in the bedrooms but they were inoperable) and lacked a few conveniences--only one bed side table, no end tables by one sofa, no mirror in the bedrooms(which would have been really nice esp with only one bathroom so you can do your hair/make-up while the other person is showering). And the house is right across from a busy highway so the road noise woke us up in the morning (but just to be clear, we're from Texas and live where we never hear any traffic).

The only real negative is the property only has one bathroom. It didn't bother us much until the last morning when we all needed to shower and get out the door to catch our flights home.

All in all it's a great property and a very good owner. I would not hesitate to rent again and recommend it to others visiting the MSP area.
