To get to it simply head left through the living room and pick the leftmost of the three doors in the hallway. ------------- It is located in a 5 bedroom 1.5 bathroom home built in 1910 in the quiet and quaint neighborhood of Linden Hills in the southern part of Minneapolis, MN The Zen Den is named because the decor is all designed with the intention of creating the epitome of relaxation! Phew, that was some lofty language but really that is the goal. The room is fully equipped with all the base essentials you would need in an apartment so you can check-in and be as private as you desire to be. The house also doubles as an art gallery. Please feel free to take a look around and ask questions. I create many of the works you will see and also have several friends that show their work in the house. There are plaques hanging next to almost all of the pieces with the artists name and brief descriptions. Paintings rotate often and can be purchased if anything strikes your fancy =) This listing is in Linden Hills, one of the safest neighborhoods in Minneapolis. It's close enough to everything to be convenient and tucked away enough to be private. There are a few good restaurants, a wine and cheese shop, and great Co-op just a couple blocks south (to the left facing the street) of the house. The kitchen cupboards and refrigerator are stocked with food just for you. Please feel free to take advantage! If you want to leave your own food in the shared kitchen there are markers attached to the fridge for you to label it. Each guest room also has a mini fridge provided so you may also put your food there. Please make yourself comfortable and enjoy your stay! Guest access The house is very open and we hope you will make yourself comfortable in the common areas. The living room, kitchen, front and back porches are yours to explore. You can also take advantage of on site coin laundry! Feel free to watch TV in the living room. Basically if it's in a common area feel free to use it. All we ask is that you be respectful of the other guest's private quarters. Other things to note PETS: -Pets are welcome but must be kept in your room. Dogs can be let out to play in the back yard and doo their business XD. They must be kept on a leash while moving through the common areas of the house and cleaned up after. -Pets are people too! Please list your companion as an extra guest when you make your booking. -If your lil buddy needs some special attention while your off at work let us know. We would be happy to work out something to keep the poor lil dudes from being cooped up in a kennel all day! CLEANLINESS: This is an OLD home and has it's quirks. It is not a hotel and if you require bleached down and sparkling new everything this is not the place for you. I have 3 co-hosts that help me with laundry, vacuuming and other cleaning daily. I am and have been renovating the home as time and finances allow since I bought it and began my AirBnb hosting journey. There are several things on the list like new carpets and bathroom/kitchen remodels. I very much appreciate your patronage as it makes all these things possible! HEATING/COOLING Again the house is old and one of its quirks is that even though there is central air temperature varies based on what floor you are on. I keep the thermostat at the temperature that is the best compromise between everybody. Bare this in mind and DO NOT mess with the thermostat! THE PINK THREE HEADED DOG! Occasionally as a host I have had issues with guests who did not completely read my listing details. I have taken my time to make the listing so that everyone knows what to expect and we all get along synergistically during their stay. When you message me about booking please mention the pink three headed dog or I will know you haven't read everything! Then I will tell you to finish reading the listing details before I accept your request and when you get to this part you'll feel silly. LOLOL!!! Be well everyone and I look forward to meeting you!More

Interaction with guests
I manage a few Bnb's in the midwest and am frequently floating between them working on a variety of projects. I always enjoy company so feel free to hang out while I'm working. On weekends I like to barbecue and/or fire perform in the back yard. Again please feel welcome to participate and hang out!

About the neighbourhood
Pedro’s home is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. I live in the Linden Hills neighborhood. It is a nice, quite, and safe part of the city, still central to a lot of attractions. Pretty much everything your base needs would require are within a mile. Multiple movie theaters, grocery stores, boutiques. I am also just down the street from a great wine & cheese shop and book store where animals roam free!
Getting around
I am located walking distance from several good restaurants, bars, and shops. I am also nestled very close to a chain of four lakes that are great for walkers and runners. The 6 bus line is half a block from my door, and will take you to several popular locations in the city. These include Uptown, Downtown, Dinkytown and the Southdale Mall. Uber rarely takes more then 5 minutes to pick up, and if I'm available I'd be happy to show you around town.
