Descrizione

L'alloggio

This room gets the afternoon sun. Because the room looks out over the garage roof, you can leave your shades open and still get privacy. The room is provided with an extra-long double bed, book shelves, a desk, an armchair, a wardrobe with shelves and a clothing rod, a vanity/toiletries table, a small lingerie dresser/night stand, and a 3-drawer built-in dresser and a television with local stations.

Accesso ospiti

The house is equipped with high speed wireless internet.

The main floor shared space includes a fully equipped kitchen, featuring a shared spice rack with seasonings from all over the world, a formal dining room with adjoining living room and foyer - all three connected with the original 100-year-old wooden archways.

When I am not myself cooking or entertaining, guests are free to use the main floor, including a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room and foyer and the fenced in back yard. There is no hood over the kitchen stove, however, so frying is limited to covered pans and moderate temperatures.

The shared bathroom is located upstairs, next to the bedrooms. The guest room in the basement has an their own private bath. The backyard has some nice sunning possibilities with comfy chaise lounge chairs or, if you prefer a little shade, a nice rocker ideal for lazy summer days and a good book.

Interazione con gli ospiti

I'm a substitute teacher with flexible working hours, so I'll be at home some days. I am more than happy to share any tips on great things to do while visiting the Twin Cities. I love sharing my joy of living in the Twin Cities and am great at scouting out free and inexpensive art, cultural and entertainment options.

Il quartiere

Como Park is one of the city's jewels. In addition to the lake and surrounding park there's a free zoo and conservatory, open year-round. Downtown Saint Paul is only 3 miles away on a direct bus line, and Minneapolis is a little farther in the opposite direction, but also on that line. Roseville is convenient for shopping of all kinds with supermarkets and a variety of malls, big and small.

Un giro nei dintorni

We're a few blocks from great public transit. The #3 bus line runs east to west between both downtown Saint Paul and downtown Minneapolis. There are also lines running north/south on both Dale and Lexington Avenues.

From the airport - I heartily endorse SuperShuttle. Many of my guests have used it, and I've never heard a complaint. You can reserve online and the price is guaranteed - no surprises. They ask for your flight information, and they're there at the airport for you, no matter what time your flight arrives, day or night, whether your plane is on time or late.

Of course, if you're traveling on a slimmer budget, just catch the #54 bus to downtown Saint Paul and transfer to the #3. Just check to see if you're on the #3A or the #3B, as the stops are different once you get to my neighborhood. The fare is $1.75 non-rush hour and $2.25 for rush hour. You'll want exact change. People like to take the light rail, but it's much faster to go through downtown Saint Paul.

BUSSES - East or west, the #3 bus will take you there. Connect to the Snelling Avenue bus north or south for unlimited shopping and dining choices. North-south busses are also available on Lexington Avenue and Dale Street - an 8-10 minute walk in either direction. For more information on bussing, the G... Maps website is quite useful. Just enter your starting point and your destination, and G... Maps will figure the rest. You can also go directly to the MetroTransit website for specifics on routes and route maps.

BIKES - I do have a number of bicycles available for my house guests to use. I have some random bike helmets, reflectors and lights, an air pump and an inner tube repair kit. It's strictly "as is." If it works, you're free to use it. Some locks are also available.

ON FOOT - In addition to Como Park, you'll find a number of fun and interesting things within walking distance to the house:

TO THE EAST - Conny's Creamy Cones, open April through October, has over 24 flavors of soft serve; Toasted, a fun little neighborhood liquor store with make-your-own 6-pack beers. My personal favorites include the Banana Beer and the Ginger Beer. This is a great way to sample the local micro-breweries. Our award winning John's Pizza, with real ingredients that actually taste like they should (nothing plastic about their cheese), Ace Hardware - when you just have to have that little courtesy bag of popcorn, and Speedy Market, for the emergency milk and cookies run.

TO THE WEST - Half-time Rec, with their newly resurfaced bocce ball lanes in the basement, and pool tables and darts on the main floor. It's newly built kitchen serves British Pub fare complete with mushy peas. Be prepared for loud music and a cover charge on the weekends. Across the street - Gabe's On the Park, for your sports tv hangout with burgers and steaks. Check out their Happy Hour deals.

Larpenteur (to the north), Snelling (to the west) and University Avenue (to the south) meet all of your shopping needs. There are north/south bus lines that connect with the #3 on Snelling, Lexington, and Dale. You can take the bus all the way to the Mall of America, but our own beautiful Rosedale Shopping Center has many of the same shops at ½ the distance, and ¼ of the crowds.

The #3 bus line has some interesting shopping/restaurant venues as well - Hmongtown Market to the east where you can get freshly prepared papaya salad and bubble tea, or fresh produce from the farmers' market out back. Just to the west of the Saint Paul campus, you'll find a quaint little main street in St. Anthony Village. Stop by the Finnish Bistro for some really fresh, really tasty baked goods, a delectable salad, sandwich or quiche, and some of the best coffee brewed in town at the adjoining Dunn Brothers' cafe. The Speedy Market on main street really serves as a local grocer, with fresh produce and other real food. Or, stop on your way home at Snelling and Como Avenues. Hop off the bus for a sub sandwich or some deli meats at Nelson's Cheese Factory and pick up some tofu at Shanghai Market. Then hop back on the bus and you're home in a flash!

Altre cose da evidenziare

We're on a good bus line, and there's plenty of street parking along the side of the house. I have some bikes available for use. The house is close to the RR tracks. I find the sound peaceful, but others do not. You'll have to use your own judgement.

My stay at Galyle's place was perfect for my visit to St. Paul. Gayle is an excellent communicator. She greeted me at the door and promptly showed me everything I needed to make myself comfortable in her home. Her home is clean and my room was clean and comfortable as was the shared bathroom. Traveling alone I felt safe in her neighborhood. I really enjoyed my little adventure with Gayle to the local Irish pub. I would not hesitate to stay with her again. AA+!

We stayed in Gayle's place over a month so we know her, the house and the neighborhood pretty good. The bedroom is good, it's big enough for a couple and it has all what you need. All the common areas are prepared so you can move around without asking for everything during your first days. The WiFi connection is incredible, I worked in a tech company and I had better Internet connection in her home than at work. The house is close to two bus stops, but the busses do not have high frequency. You can use those busses to go to downtown Saint Paul or downtown Minneapolis. Como park and the lake are 10 minutes walking away and it's beautiful. The train is there, you can hear it, but we didn't have any problem while we were sleeping. Gayle was super helpful. Our stay in Minneapolis would have been much more difficult without her. If this is your first time in Minneapolis, Gayle is your person. She gave a ton of advices and help in whatever she could, I don't have enough words to thank her. On the other side there are lots of rules. Sometimes it was hard for me to remember them all and follow them all. Read the airbnb description carefully.

I felt so welcome that I decided to stay for another month! Gayle was great. While I was from the area originally, I have been gone for 15 years. Gayle was extremely helpful in getting re-acquainted with the area. Gayle's home is in a very convenient area that has quick access to many main roads but is tucked away in a part of the neighborhood that does not get alot of drive-by traffic.

We had a great stay in St Paul/ Minneapolis! Gayle is a lovely and very kind woman. She is a great help for tourist tips and anything else! We felt very well and comfortable at her place! The neighborhood is quiet and we always felt save around there. The next bus stop is just a three minutes walk away and within five minutes you get to a nice lake and a zoo.

She is super host. Even though check out time is written 3 pm, I was around the area and she let me check in around 1 pm and that was very nice of her. Surrounded by Como park and nice neighborhood, didn't have issue getting around. Room was clean and Bed was very comfortable. Just make sure to follow set up rules she has in place which wasn't issue for me. Overall experience, excellent!

Staying at Gayle´s place was great and very nice for me. I arrived earlier in the city to attend a conference and stayed a little longer after it, so i could enjoy more the city and nearby taking my time to do it and also rest. The location of the house is excellent for those who want to have a quite nice neighborhood, close to como lake and also easy to go to anywhere in the twin cities. Gayle was every time very helpful and thoughtful on each guests plans and schedules. There was even a day when the climate previewed rain, and she lent me the rain coat. The train mentioned in description ir real, and most of the time i could just hear it, or let it wake me up, because of my own fault living the window open. The house is very tidy and clean. Gayle thought it all through so her guest can be very independent. I could find any kitchen ware easily for any kind of meal. If you have any doubts on where to go to do the best shop, or visit, or even how to make your stay better in the house talk to Gayle, she will surely give you the best advice. The other guest on the house have different timing on their everyday schedules, and also on their purpose on the city, made a lot of new friends that were sharing the house the same days i was there.

Profilo utente di Gayle

Hi, I'm a 57-year old school teacher. I've taught everything from grad school to pre-school, including English as a Second Language, French, French Immersion, elementary school and adult literacy. I started traveling when I was 17, and have never gotten tired of it. More recently, however, work, family ties and home ownership have kept me tied down. So now I bring the world to me by welcoming guests in my home from all around the globe. My passions include gardening, cooking, travel and books. I especially enjoy playing hostess to people who want to discover the Twin Cities.
