This property is clearly a labor of love by the owners, and their close attention to the finest details and choice of amenities is evident. However, it is not mentioned anywhere in the listing that the rental space shares common space with the owners. Given their otherwise fine attention to detail, I think this omission is intentional. The actual set-up was alluded to several days after booking in a long follow-up email from the owners outlining logistics, the area, activities to do, etc. (". . .we live downstairs, and once you know your approximate arrival time, we could greet you at the front door."). Honestly, this detail did not catch my attention because I don't look at these logistical emails until I am ready to leave for my trip. I was spending a quick mother/daughter weekend in Minneapolis with my mom to celebrate my 50th Birthday. I expected we would be in the same living space, as the listing states it is a "2 bedroom vacation home". The property is two levels; the owners live on the ground level and the VRBO property is the upper level. Both the owner's section and the rental portion share a common downstairs entryway and staircase up to the VRBO property. The VRBO property consists of an apartment with one bedroom and all the amenities as described. The second bedroom is a stand-alone unit not connected to the main unit, and has no bathroom or open access to the main unit. Think of two hotel rooms a few feet down the hallway from each other (and one without a bathroom). I don't think the hallway issue would have been a problem for us if we had our own private, self-contained rental space, but our comings and goings between our two rooms were open into the common entry area below. This made me and my mom uncomfortable. I am sure lots of people would have been fine with this, but we definitely would not have chosen this property if the layout was more clearly described. The good news is that the owners were great about respecting our privacy, and also helpful in getting our luggage up the stairs to our area. I would not recommend this property to anyone who is uncomfortable with steep stairs. There is a picture on the listing showing the staircase. I really wanted to love our stay, as the actual units were top-notch, the area beautiful and the price very reasonable. I just think full disclosure up front is important to having happy guests.
