Guestbook comments from the owner
Mike,

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for our wonderful stay in St. Louis this past weekend. Your place was just as expected, clean and spacious, and the location was magnificent for our needs. We left your unit the gifts of a simple cheese grater and small cutting board:).

If we head back to St. Louis I will definitely think of you again.

Best Regards,

B. D.

I bought this historic property in 2010 and have been working to upgrade it over the years. I was born and raised in the St. Louis area and enjoy getting out and about in the city by foot, bike and car. Most of my vacations are spent in the mountains either skiing or down-hill mountain biking. I prefer using VRBO for my vacations and have used my experiences to help shape my own. Feel free to ask me for recommendations of good local eats and key attractions on your visit.

I bought this building because it is in a quiet, safe, and historic neighborhood. The centrality of the location allows you to drive, walk or bike easily around the city.

Location, location, location. The apartment is just one-block west of the Missouri Botanical Gardens and three-blocks north of Tower Grove Park. You can walk to several restaurants, shops, parks, the Missouri Botanical Gardens, grocery stores and so much more. Some of the close by neighborhoods that you can walk or bike to include: South Grand, The Hill, Tower Grove South, Shaw, Central West End & The Grove. Also, you have easy freeway access to 64/40, 70, 55 and 44.

WE LOVED THE QUIET, LUSH GREEN, NEIGHBORHOOD!

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with the Apartment. The owner, Mike Y. emailed us detailed instructions on how to find the property and check in. The apartment was quiet and in the middle of a great neighborhood just a a few blocks from the St. Louis Botanic Gardens. It is well appointed, air-conditioned, stocked with ample towels, dishes, etc. and has a washer and dryer downstairs. Staying there was like getting to feel like how it is to actually live in that neighborhood of St. Louis. We walked from the apartment to one of the best rated Do-nut shops in St. Louis, the World's Fair Donut shop. There was ample, free, close by parking on the quiet street. Inside the apartment is a computer and free wi-fi. There are books, games and magazines on the bookshelves. There were even three books on
St. Louis available to borrow and take with you as you located things to do in the city. I thought that was a nice touch. There is also a nice, quiet backyard with table and chairs if you wanted to relax outdoors. Don't miss touring all around an area of town nearby called The Hill. It has many great Italian restaurants, bakeries, and delis. Thanks, Mike for the nice place that we got to call "home" for two days. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Sincerely,
Susan and Mike from Fort Worth, Texas

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

We have stayed at this apartment 3 nights now and this is our last night here. Has been a wonderful apartment to make "home" the past 4 days. It is the perfect location and close to everything. We rented a car and felt like we were pros in finding the place the same day we arrived! The bed is so comfortable...bathroom a tight squeeze but since my husband is 6'4" that could have something to do with it. Either way, it was economical, clean and we would stay here again if ever in St. Louis again.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT AND AREA

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful older, but lovely, apartment. Right between the zoo and downtown. Super neighborhood bordering on the botanical gardens. Couldn't ever get the A/C to cool but it wasn't too hot when we were there so wasn't a huge deal.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I welcome you back to stay on your next trip to the Saint Louis area. Also thank you for letting me know about the AC. I had my service tech check it out and everything seems to be working Okay and the apartment is holding steady at 72 degrees while it is in the 90's outside. I'm wondering if during your stay there was a window cracked somewhere that was letting in heat or something was sitting on top of the cold air return, both problems have happened in the past.

Very nice apt with comfortable bed and convenient to many things in St Louis. Had the grandchildren come over and spend the night one night and was very comfortable. Would recommend this to future St Louis visitors. Only drawback was street parking on a first come first serve bases as everyone on the street has to park on the curb.

For those reading the above comment, I would like to point out that my advertisement does stat that the property is street parking only. Not everyone on the street parks on the curb, many of the residents including myself have rear parking. You can almost always grab a spot right in front of the building and at the very worst, you will at least find a spot on this block.

WONDERFUL PLACE FOR AN EXTENDED STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cozy apartment for 7 weeks and enjoyed it so much! The owner, was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay. The apartment is in a great location, close to Tower Grove Park, The Hill and the Botanical Gardens. Parking was never a problem, and usually we were about to park right in front of the house. We loved it so much hat we had some friends come to visit and they stayed in the flat right upstairs from ours! We highly recommend this sweet environment for a week-end, week, and certainly for a long extended stay in St. Louis!
