We know you are going to love this home and its close location to so many of St. Louis's best attractions! You are just minutes away from almost everything we love about this city!
Located on a bustling urban street, there is a good deal of traffic and foot traffic, especially in warmer weather. This may seem odd or unusual to people from the burbs or rural areas, but it is completely normal for this working class neighborhood. There are stores, parks and restaurants plus the bus stop, all within walking distance. The reason the house is so affordable is because the location is not upscale or trendy, but it is conveniently located and perfect for your stay in the historic city of St. Louis!!
This home has beautiful hardwood floors and ceramic tile throughout. The living room is comfy and spacious with seating for 6. The kitchen, which is open to the living room, is equipped for your basic cooking needs. There are 2 bedrooms, each with a closet and a chest of drawers to make your stay more convenient. Bedding is located in the bottom drawer of the chests in each bedroom and in the entertainment center. Sofa sleepers will need to be made up. Both sofa sleepers have new and comfy mattresses.
A cool pocket door separates the bathroom form the rest of the house. What if I told you there was a soaking/whirlpool tub in the bathroom? Wonderful to come back to after a busy business or vacation day, right?!! Or you can just use the shower. Body wash, shampoo, conditioner and lotion are provided in case you forgot yours! Towels are also provided and you are welcome to wash them if you like fresh towels each day.
The laundry area has a washer and a dryer along with an iron and pull down ironing board. The pocket door allows you to close off the laundry area. Detergent is provided.
We have provided a variety of games and puzzles for your use during your stay. There is internet service and a TV with ROKU and Netflix. Enjoy!
The backyard is small, but very private. It contains a patio area complete with a grill for your outdoor cooking needs. You can enjoy a day on the town, then throw some steaks or burgers on the grill and relax on the patio when you get back.
The Urban Getaway is in a perfect location because of it's close proximity to Highway 55. The North and South highway entrances and exits are 1 minute from the front door. Soulard, Benton Park, Lafayette Square, downtown and Highway 44 or Highway 40 are about 5-7 minutes from the property.
