      Great house for a group

      Really enjoyed our stay at this home. We had a group of 5 and the house was comfortable and spacious. Easy parking and quiet neighborhood. Had a few issues with kitchen and dining supplies but communications with property manager were excellent and she was very responsive. I would stay here again if I were with a group in Minneapolis!
