I am a licensed real estate broker in St. Louis, MO. When I briefly relocated out of state I couldn't bear to part with my dream home and converted it to a luxury vacation rental.
Jeffrey Marquie purchased this estate in 2006
This is a serene location. I love to stay here when I need to get away from the city but need to stay close. Every piece of artwork and furniture were carefully hand selected.
Luxury can be affordable. Imagine saving the cost of 7 hotel rooms and everyone being able to stay under the same roof and socialize. The ability to prepare your own meals in a gourmet kitchen, dine together, relax together in a beautiful setting in harmony with nature.
We stayed here with a group of 6 adults and 5 kids and the house was perfect for our group. We had plenty of beds for everyone and lacked nothing in amenities. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to stay close to Six Flags or Hidden Valley ski resort.
We had a great early Christmas with our family at Shane's house located on beautiful wooded acreage near the Paradise Valley Golf Course. Shane thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. I highly recommend it
My family and I stayed at the estate this past weekend. The house is very spacious and accommodated our large family comfortably. There was plenty of room for everywhere to be spaced out but not too far away. The kitchen was well stocked with tableware, pots and pans, and dishes. There were even plenty of things there that people tend to forget on trips such as aluminum foil and spices/seasonings. We found a baby chair and booster seat which was very appreciated by the parents of little ones. The house is uniquely decorated and we were a bit nervous due to the generous amount of decor and art in the common spaces but it wasn't a problem. Some family members had difficulty finding the house and I would suggest putting some sort of marker or light at the top of the driveway because in the dark in can be easily missed. We would rent this space again for sure.
We had 19 people for Thanksgiving dinner. Large, convenient kitchen is well-stocked with a variety of mixing bowls, pots/pans, casserole dishes, etc., including a large roaster (big enough for one of our 17.5 pound turkeys) and a couple of large slow cookers. There was plenty of dishes/glassware and flatware as well. The only knock I would make would be that there really is sleeping for 17 at most: 5 queen/king beds, 3 singles and two pull-out couches. Additional sleeping is on couches - there's enough of those to accommodate another 3 or so people, but not particularly comfortably. There was plenty of linens, though - We bought some air mattresses at Walmart and had no other issues. The house is big enough to accommodate multiple conversation groups / games / other activities without feeling crowded. All in all, a really great time. The home is very well maintained, and I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely it is decorated.
This is a pretty isolated location, very quiet and pretty. We didn't attempt to go anywhere, but it would be a bit of a drive to get into downtown St. Louis.
Clean, comfortable, and beautiful home with lots of space and living areas for us to spread out in when we needed to but also with great intimate spaces to spend time together. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
