About Steve & Terry Cacciatore
Steve and I grew up in St Louis and love our city. We have a carpentry business and have gutted and rehabbed this apartment, which is attached to our home that we converted from a duplex to a single family. My husband Steve grew up on 'The HIll' our cities historic Italian neighborhood and attended St Louis U High, and SIUE where he went to college on a full soccer scholarship, and at 63 still plays the game! I have a yoga teaching certification and help in the carpentry business as well as run the vacation rentals. We have 6 grown children between us and a total of 6 grandchildren! We love to spend our Friday nights cooking and sharing wine with friends and family. My husband is an amazing cook and an avid fisherman. We love to play Pickle ball, ride our bikes around the city, and play in a bocce league 8 months of the year, at our favorite neighborhood pub. When we retire we plan to travel the US!
Why Steve & Terry Cacciatore chose Southwest Garden
Our carpentry company bought this property in 2008 to tear down and build new town homes overlooking Sublette park, but the economy had other ideas. In 2010 we adjusted our vision and began a long, still in progress rehabilitation of the buildings, which at the time were 2 sets of attached duplexes. We gutted both buildings and spent weekends rebuilding the interiors, converting the large units into our single family home. Buy 2012 we were moved in and then started the same process on the 2 smaller apartment units. The transformation has been an amazing process and we wouldn't live anywhere else!
What makes this Apartment unique
St Louis was settled by the French, and Missouri had an amazingly prolific clay mines. As a result the city is littered with gorgeous, rich red/brown brick architecture. I loved that our buildings had the original city style architecture with flat roofs and tall ceilings with pocketed door parlors, large porches and fireplaces in every room. This house had many of those features so I feel very fortunate to have one of these buildings that just fits our city.

Nice property, clean and in good location. Parking right in front.
Clean as a whistle. Very nice decor. Comfortable. Quiet. I loved my stay and certainly look forward to staying here again!
This the third time we have rented the apartment. We love it.
This is our 2nd time to stay at this property. Last month we stayed in the upstairs apartment and this month in the downstairs apartment. Both are cozy and makes you feel very welcome. The apartment is clean and has everything you need to make you feel at home. This is our go to place to stay when we visit the city. Highly recommend this apartment.
Perfect apartment to walk “The Hill” for Italian dining.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Southwest Garden one bedroom apartment (downstairs unit). It was immaculate and had all needed amenities. We took off on foot to eat at GianTony’s and had a great pasta meal. From there we hoofed it to play Bocce Ball at the local court/bar where we paired up with fellow novice players and had a blast. We’d highly recommend this apartment if you want a safe neighborhood where you don’t have to drive to find great Italian restaurants.
Enjoyed our stay.
Great location and neighborhood.
Comfortable spot. Totally pleased. Would come back again.
