About Karen Runk

My husband grew up in Chesterfield, actually in this house. We met in Dallas, had two children and moved around the country before his job landed him back to his hometown.

Karen Runk purchased this house in 1999

Why Karen Runk chose St. Louis

We purchased the home from my husband's parents in 1999, they were downsizing and we were raising our family. After our kids had grown and left the nest, we were ready to downsize. We had an unexpected opportunity to buy the smaller house next door, so we did. We are renting our old 'big' house as a vacation rental until the housing market rebounds.

What makes this house unique

The number one attraction is the yard that backs up to common ground. It's beautiful, and not uncommon to see such wildlife as deer and wild turkey, along with the squirrels and bunnies of course. On the inside, this house is huge, we have many fond memories of Girl Scout meetings, slumber parties and movie nights with friends.

Good solid rental - worked well for entire family

  • 4 of 5
This rental house was great for our entire family. We had seven adults and one child (2.5 year old) staying for a wedding. There was plenty of room for all. The backyard was nice to sit around and for the kiddo. The hot tub was a nice addition. The house is in a very quiet location with easy access to the major highways. It is a very good location for anything on the west side of St. Louis. The owners were great and very helpful. I would recommend the rental.

Peaceful, with lots of space

  • 5 of 5
We had five adults and four children staying at the house, and we loved having so much space to spread out! The kids enjoyed the basement; it was their own place to run around and be crazy without making the adults crazy. :) The house was cool and comfortable even in the middle of a heat wave. Jack and Karen were helpful, coming promptly to fix a light and even recommending a good mechanic.

Very quiet neighborhood with lots of trees. The drive to Forest Park (home of the St. Louis zoo plus a number of museums) was about 25 minutes, and getting downtown to the Arch took between 35-40 minutes. The house was close to restaurants and grocery stores. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad the house worked out for you, it was fun watching the kids play in the backyard, especially when they were rolling down the hill.

Two families visiting St Louis from Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5
We spent 1 week at the house with 4 adults and 6 kids, and we had plenty of room! Bedrooms were large enough for all of us, the basement and backyard were great places for the kids to play, and having laundry on site was a definite bonus. Owners were very helpful when we needed things, and were very nice and accommodating. Easy drive to St Louis daily in less than 30 mins depending on traffic. Would stay there again and highly recommend to others!

Great Hotel Alternative

  • 5 of 5
Huge home with large bedrooms and really good beds. . . Owner couldn't have been more accomodating in every way. . . .Needed Salt and there was salt. . . left some belongings and owner is mailing back and wouldn't even accept payment for postage. Convenient to St Louis and STL Airport. Great back yard and patio with nothing but nature behind it. Enjoyed sun there one day and the beauty of a Spring snowstorm the next.
