Two friends and I came for a girls shopping weekend. We enjoyed all the room and comfy beds. The location was perfect. We grilled the first night and enjoyed the deck, the beautiful yard, and tomatoes picked from the garden. We were welcome to use spices or anything else we needed in the fridge or cupboards. The flowers and wine were a nice touch.
We didn’t see the 2 bikes listed and were going to call but then it rained and there was no need. All in all, we had a nice experience.

This home was very clean and inviting. It is located in a well-established, well-cared for neighborhood in the St. Paul area. Beautiful neighborhood to walk in and a block from the river for more walking, running and biking trails. The kitchen was well appointed if you wanted to prepare meals. Large dining table for family meals or puzzles and games in the evening. My husband enjoyed sunning on the deck. Two gathering areas make it nice for people who want to watch TV and those who just want to visit. We were visiting our son who is a musician and attending his gigs in the evening and an afternoon patio event. This location was a great "home base" for accessing the Twin Cities. Our hosts were gracious. Michelle returned messages promptly when we arrived. She came by to water outside plants but was very sensitive to our schedule so as not to disrupt us in any way. Thank you Michael and Michelle. We will definitely stay here again!

We were in the Twin Cities for a celebration of life for my mother. The house was perfect for our group with plenty of space for sharing a meal, playing cards, visiting with local family, relaxing on the beautiful deck, watching the humming birds, and going for walks around the beautiful neighborhood. The bedrooms were private, very comfortable, and everything was exceptionally clean. Our host was out of the country during our stay but we spoke on the phone before he left and during the stay his assistant stopped by a couple of times to make sure things were ok. The kitchen was very well supplied and enjoyable to work in. It was too warm during our stay to use the flame table but we sat on the comfortable furniture in the area and enjoyed the beautiful back yard and the birds. The outdoor spaces were perfect for enjoying early morning coffee and for watching the sunsets in the evening. It's close to the airport but quiet, and convenient to both Minneapolis and St. Paul. Altogether a wonderful place for a family gathering!

This is one of my favorite vrbo’s. The home is updated with wonderful fully stocked kitchen and nice light throughout the home. Beautiful large backyard with deck and patio. It’s a short walk to the greenway by the Mississippi River which is great for walking and biking.

We visited St. Paul over a long weekend for my sister-in-law's Celebration of Life, held at Macalester College's chapel. The house was very conveniently located less than two miles from the campus, in a lovely neighborhood near the Mississippi River. We walked along the Mississippi River one afternoon, access being very close by.
The home is tastefully decorated and spacious - plenty of room for the five of us. The weather was not conducive to enjoying the outdoors, but in warmer weather guests would be able to enjoy comfort and privacy on the deck and patio. The kitchen was well stocked, and the appliances were top of the line. Beds were very comfortable, and the beautifully appointed bathrooms included toiletries and other useful items – well thought out.
Michael was quick to respond via email prior to our arrival, and by phone during our stay.
I'd highly recommend "Club 139" to anyone wanting a little luxury and lots of space while visiting the Twin Cities.

The house at 139 Otis Avenue is out of this world. Very beautifully laid out, incredible kitchen, and comfy bedrooms, all with wonderful views of the surrounding neighborhood . One block from the Mississippi with lovely walking paths to explore. We didn’t want to leave!
