Great Downtown Minneapolis Location!

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

1 Br, 1ba In Downtown, Close To Light Rail, Interstate Access, Major Sports

This apartment is in a beautiful building that has been totally renovated inside, and out- no surface is untouched! This wasn't just a 'quick paint' renovation- kitchens and bathrooms were completely torn out, all electric/plumbing/heating in the building is entirely new, all flooring was taken up and replaced, all doors were replaced, and more! The entire project took over a year to complete!

No, you aren't seeing double, we also have another great apartment exactly like this one listed on vrbo. Due to the demand for our first apartment, we decided to enroll another aprtment in the vrbo program. Both apartments have the same mirror-image layouts, and are decorated with the exact same furnishings in the same colors from ikea. Everything is exactly the same, they are even on the same floor of our building. The other apartment is vrbo property #613410. If you want to book this apartment, but the calendar is full for the dates that you are looking at, please check vrbo property #613410, it may be available

The location on the edge of downtown in the elliot park neighborhood is incredibly convenient, and this building provides a walk score of 77, a transit score of 100, and a bike score of 95. In addition, there is one off-street parking space for every apartment, and access to both i35w and i94 within 1/2 mile.

Minnesota is home to teams in all 4 of the major league sports- mlb, nfl, nba, nhl- and this apartment is within a mile of the nfl, mlb and nba, and a short drive or train ride from the nhl stadium. In addition, the world famous guthrie theatre, orchestral hall, and the minneapolis convention center are all within one mile. The minneapolis institute of arts and the children's theatre are both a little more than a mile away.

Three well-known, highly regarded hospitals are all within one mile. Hennepin county medial center is .5 miles, abbott northwestern hospital is about .8 miles, and children's hospital is about .7 miles.

The restaurants, shopping, and nightlife of downtown minneapolis are a short walk, ride, or drive away. All of the fun of uptown and the minneapolis chain of lakes is only about 2.5 miles.

You will also be very close to many institutes of higher education including the u of m, north central university, augsburg, st. Thomas, st. Catherine, hamline, minneapolis academy of art and design, minneapolis community college, minneapolis technical college, and more. All of these are either a short ride, drive, bus or train ride away (some are even a short walk!).

Each apartment has:

• +/- 600 square feet

• granite counter tops

• glass tile back splashes

• stainless steel and black appliances

• kitchen slate floor

• new hardwood floors throughout

• completely new bathrooms with ceramic tile

• tons of storage- 3 closets within each apartment

• security system with front door intercom

• air conditioning

• bedroom ceiling fan

The rent includes:

- off-street parking spot in lighted parking lot

- WI-fi

- cable television

- kitchen fully stocked with plates/glasses/flatware/cookware/utensils/etc.

The building has an on-site laundry room, is 1/2 block off of a Minneapolis designated bike route, is 1/2 block from 2 bus routes (a couple more are just a few blocks away), is about 1/2 mile from light rail routes, and has off-street parking with a lighted parking lot.

Walking distances to a few landmarks:

• 1-1/2 minutes to north central university

• 5-1/2 minutes to hcmc

• 8 minutes to the convention center (this is part of the mp-ls sky way system)

• 9 minutes to the metro dome/light rail

• 12 minutes to orchestra hall

This location is perfect for anyone who is working downtown, at hcmc, at Abbott northwestern, or is visiting/studying/working at north central university, the u of m, Augsburg, or mcad. In addition to those great places, eat street, uptown, and the lakes, are just a short ride away.

You can also take the light rail train (1/2 mile away) to/from the airport, downtown st. Paul, and the mall of America. In short, there is not much in the Minneapolis/st. Paul area that is too far away from here!

Thank you for looking!

About Channing

I was born and grew up in Minneapolis, went to the U of M, and am now raising my kids in the area. There is not much in Minneapolis that I haven't heard about, seen, or done.

I have traveled extensively around the US, and the world, and I still keep coming back. I love it here!

Channing purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Channing chose Minneapolis

My family has renovated many properties over the years, and when I saw this one I knew that it was a great opportunity. It took a lot of time and money, but we are really happy with the way that everything came out.

Very clean, comfortable apt. Great location. Owner is very responsive and friendly.

  • 5 of 5

I contacted Channing very last minute as another housing option fell through and he was so accommodating, quick to respond and friendly! And the place itself is very clean, with up to date ammenities and in a great location. I would easily recommend this place to others, and will definitely stay here the next time I'm in Minneapolis.

Fit our needs perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We were at the convention center for the weekend and this was the perfect spot for us. It was easily walkable, saving us on parking fees and meal costs. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Highly recommend.

A basic vacation rental, very clean

  • 3 of 5

This rental is very clean. It is in a transitional neighborhood. Fine walking during day , but we did not feel comfortable walking from town after dark. Without a car,markets are not easily accessible. The owner was easy to contact , as needed.

Clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed at this apartment when we went to Minneapolis for a Vikings game. The location was a quick walk to US Bank Stadium and the light rail. Downtown is also walkable. The apartment is very clean and the upgrades give it a new feel in an older building. Channing was very helpful and even gave us a list of activities happening while we were in the Twin Cities. For our purposes, it was exactly what we were looking for.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised, nice, clean and modern. Channing was great to work with. The surrounding area is going though some urban re-development. However, we never felt unsafe.
