150ft2 - Mom & 12 year old Seeking Room in Home ASAP (South Minneapolis)



dogs are OK - wooof

My son and I are both lifelong residents of Minneapolis, and we are seeking a medium-to-large-sized room in a shared home in SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS. (Minimum 8’ ceiling height so that there's room for our two loft beds, see in attached photo.)

Our budget is between $525 to 600/month including utilities. Prefer a proper lease, preferably a minimum of 6-months. I have zero criminal history and a fine rental history; background checks are welcome. Our move-in date is flexible, but looking for something soon please.

We are both CLEAN and organized, both in our room and in shared common areas.

We're seeking a place free of mold, air pollution (such as smoke), and NO CATS please.

responsible, intelligent, compassionate mother
accommodating, flexible and easy to get along with

former Physics major, graphic designer, Adobe tech support and an apprentice electrician;
currently focused on regaining excellent health through body cleanses, infrared sauna, detox and exercises;
in a few years, I plan to get a B.S. in Molecular Biology, a Master’s in Nutrition, and eventually become a certified Health Coach

My son:
smart, sweet and thoughtful
funny and entertaining
respectful and accommodating

attends a late-start social justice school;
takes circus, dance and acting classes throughout the year;
at home, he's either doing homework, reading, playing games, watching or making videos, or making slime

Amenities Required:
Dishwasher *
Laundry *

* Capable of remaining free of toxins and instead run only with brands such as Ecos, Seventh Generation, Restore, or something equivalent please

My son and I have dietary needs which requires that I cook our food daily so I do need regular access to the kitchen. We eat all organic, gluten-free, soy-free with a few other specific exceptions. (We are not vegan or vegetarian due to nutritional needs.)

While I am home frequently, I also am out running errands or attending appointments during business hours, sometimes for much of the day. I sometimes work from cafes with internet, and on many weekends, I take my child out for fun events.

I am seeking a home in which it is welcome to use only synthetic-fragrance-free, non-toxic cleaners (e.g. Seventh Generation, Ecos, Restore, etc.) whether it's for general cleaning, washing hands, dishes or laundry. I would provide my own, but Dawn dish soap, Tide laundry, perfumes or scented sprays or lotions make me ill. Essential oils and naturally-scented items are FINE (e.g. I love rose and lavender). (On the other hand, if you are sensitive yourself, I'm happy to go fragrance-free if needed.)

I also drive and have a car, so I also am looking for at least street parking.

Ideal neighborhoods: Powderhorn, Central, Regina, Kingfield, Lyndale, Whittier, Tangletown, Nokomis, Lynnhurst, Bancroft, Standish, Corcoran (image attached showing ideal locations - we're certainly willing to entertain possibilities on the border of this, but we absolutely have to stay within South Minneapolis.)
