About Mike York

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.

Why Mike York chose St. Louis

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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.

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I arrived on Saturday afternoon and we were able to go right to the place. Since this was my first time renting a VRBO, I contacted the owner with a few questions. Michael reached out to me via phone and email with in mintues and, he answered my questions. Upon our arrival we found a clean and welcoming space filled with everything you need. I would encourage folks to check out this place.

Great location, great environment

  • 4 of 5
This was a wonderful place for my brother and I to stay while in St. Louis on family business. It was much better than a hotel. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and everything was in place as we had been told it would be. I will use the space again if it is available when I come back to St. Louis.

Our vacation trip to St. Louis was very enjoyable. The apartment had plenty of room for our family of 3 and the beds were very comfortable. We found street parking right in front of the unit every night except one, but were able to park on the next block. There was no computer when we arrived but Mike was able to provide one the very next day. Location was very convenient for all our adventures. The only negative was the squeaky floors but would definitely recommend this rental.

Very convenient

  • 5 of 5
My family visits STL once or twice per year. We usually stay on The Hill, but we were tired of hotel prices and accommodations. I found this place before a recent visit for LouFest in Forest Park. It was perfect. No more than a couple miles from Forest Park, dining near Wash U, The Hill, and many other attractions.

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
