See what our tenants have to say about life at M² Lofts.

“I don’t know where to start! The management and the landlord are the best you can ever find in the Mankato area. They always respond to your requests and inquiries. They keep the common areas clean and stunning, and most importantly, they are respectful. The maintenance is great, and they don’t get mad if you call for a problem after working hours as I have experienced different treatment from other “luxury apartments” in the Mankato area. One time my AC wasn’t working, the landlord let me use the guest loft until they fixed the problem. Overall, M2Lofts is the right option for you’re looking for a relaxing, clean, and luxury place.”

“We moved to Mankato from Canada and M² instantly became home. We love  Larry and Kathy and the amazing friends that we have made since we arrived a few short months ago. The building is immaculate and is very well cared for, a wonderful place to live.”

-Ellery and Jenna

“When we were looking for our new residence in the Mankato area, we had certain specifications that could not be compromised.  The building had to be safe, clean, smoke free, and quiet. At M² Lofts we found what we were looking for and so much more. From the day we moved in we felt at home.   Kathy and Larry and the entire management team work tirelessly each day to make sure the people who live in this beautiful building feel welcome and are well taken care of. Repairs are completed and questions answered in an expedient time frame and the amenities are wonderful. M² Lofts is a place to build community or just enjoy the privacy of your own space, making it an amazing place to live and call home.”

“Beautifully decorated apartments. Friendly, helpful owners and management. Secure building with heated, underground parking garage- makes for a great place to call home.”

– Mary

“The apartments, the common areas, the community room are just lovely and the amenities are second to none in the Mankato apartment scene.
But what truly sets M² apart are the owners, Kathy Van Tol, Larry Van Tol, Noel Van Tol, and Gene Biewen. They are Mankato residents, owners of nearby Hilltop Florist, and daily present to the workings of M2 and the well being of its residents.
Added to their commitment is the friendly, dedicated, on site maintenance and management staff.  They are a phone call away and are such good, good folks. I love my new home at M2. It is a beautiful, safe, and such a friendly place to live.”


“Everything was just top notch! The one little maintenance issue we had was resolved the next day. Everybody was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the extra little treats & touches that were provided for the tenants around the holidays. And we appreciated the communication and newsletters sent by email!”
