Missouri Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Private Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Fully Furnished, Sleeps 14 in beds

Looking for a luxurious, fully furnished, beautifully decorated home away from home to host your family reunion? Seeking a holiday party while keeping everyone under the same roof? Then look no further! The Estate at Wildflower is available for as few as 2 nights, or by the week, depending on your needs. Perfect for high level executives with families needing a corporate stay. Located just 30 minutes from downtown where you can take advantage of a conference at the Convention Center, a Card's game at Busch Stadium, a night out at Lumiere Casino or the many other events downtown St. Louis has to offer. The Estate at Wildflower also has many fun activities for the family right outside it's back door! Starting with Paradise Valley Golf Course an 18-hole course open to the public within walking distance. Kraus Farm Equestrian Center or Valley Mount Ranch are 5 minutes away and offer horseback riding for the entire family. Six Flags is a short 10 minute drive on I-44 and offers an amusement and water park. If all this activity sounds like too much, then just spend your time at 'The Estate'! The park like grounds offer a very private, wooded, serene setting yet you are still 5 minutes away from the nearest Starbucks!

The Estate at Wildflower is a custom built, 5000 sq. ft. home built on a 7+/- acre, totally secluded lot. Enjoy the parklike setting and watch the deer and turkey that stroll through the yard, or spend the evening in the 7-person Caldera Hot Tub/ Spa. 'The Estate' is fully equipped and nicely appointed to meet you and your guest's needs. The gourmet kitchen boasts Brazilian granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, Jenn-Air cook top, and double oven. We have provided a wide array of dishes, pots, pans, utensils etc. to meet your entertainment and food prep needs. Two dining tables, one seats 8, the other 4, for seating your guests. There's a huge deck off the back of the house, just off the kitchen, overlooking the golf course for your summer BBQ's on the gas grill. 'The Estate' has 5 bedrooms, 4 king-size beds, and 1 queen-size bed. There's also a queen-size sofa sleeper and a king trendle bed. We can sleep 14 in beds with an occupancy limit of 20. For additional sleeping needs there are 3 other non-sleeper sofas throughout the house and ample room to place an air mattress or two for the kids, if needed. The home has 4 bath rooms including the master en suite with an oversized tub, his/her sinks, and 2-person shower. There are 2 decorative fireplaces, and 1 wood burning fireplace. Three large screen TV's and 1 smaller flat screen TV with DirecTV will satisfy your TV viewing needs. A game table with roulette wheel, chess set, and plenty of decks of cards will meet your gaming needs. Relax and enjoy reading a book from our library in front of a roaring fire or in the screened-in porch listening to the birds.

We have spared no expense furnishing your home away from home. Many of the art pieces and sculptures are original pieces of art. We have provided a weight bench, weight set, and gym-quality treadmill to meet your exercise needs. If you plan on working from 'The Estate' or just need the internet to find a nearby restaurant or grocery store, you will appreciate the free broadband (60 MB Charter pipeline) wireless internet that can be enjoyed from most any nook and cranny in or outside the home. Stay once, and you will want to stay again, as many of our guests have. We look forward to entertaining you!

About Jeffrey Marquie

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

Why Jeffrey Marquie chose Missouri

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.

What makes this estate unique

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.

Worked great for family reunion, but needs some TLC.

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home housed fourteen of us very comfortably for a family reunion. It has a fully equipped kitchen, which was great, and a large screened in porch, which we used two nights until it got too hot. We were able to all sit around the dining room table and talk the third night. It has two separate living areas on the first floor and a family room in the basement, plus five bedrooms, so we didn't feel crowded at all. The owner is super responsive and we all had a very nice stay. Now the cons; as another reviewer wrote, the place needs some attention. There are blinds that don't work, the master bedroom bathroom double door doesn't fully close, the coffee maker didn't work (over-flowed twice), there were stains on some of the towels, and the throw rugs in the bathroom looked like they needed a good washing. Other visitors have left spices, and other non perishable food items in the kitchen, and as some are expired, the kitchen really needs a good "going-through" with some items needing to be tossed. Overall, the place is clean, but it could use a really thorough cleaning, and some maintenance from all the wear and tear it takes as a rental. The location is a bit tricky to find and the house sits at the bottom of a very steep lane, so might be tough to get to in bad winter weather. Surrounded by trees, though, it is very private and pretty. It's about 30 minutes from St. Louis. All in all, I would recommend this place. It worked out great for us and we enjoyed our stay.

This is a lovely property in a nice out-of-the-way location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home as a business group. We held a three-day Retreat there. It was a great location for us, as there were very few interruptions in our work. We also enjoyed our time together and loved the feel of the place.

It was good, but had a lot that needed to be fixed.

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice home, but it needed a lot of repairs--blinds, doors, holes in the walls, towel bar. The screened in porch was very nice. Overall it was good, but out of the way from things. I would really give it a 3.75.

Fantastic Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had our softball team in for a senior tournament and wanted a big house----well, we found it!!! The house is so spacious that we had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy our stay. We had 16 ladies in the house and had a fabulous time. Televisions throughout so everyone could enjoy what they wanted in the evenings. The hot tub was great!!! Works fabulous and was a delight later in the evening. We could settle in the tub to relax the old bones and watch the fireflies in the yard. The house is so secluded that we never had to worry about bothering anyone. The grill was great---ran out of gas and they had a spare tank to take care of it. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, oil, aluminum foil, and just about everything you could imagine that would be needed. All we had to bring was the food to cook. The laundry room had plenty of detergent and even a stain remover---great for us since we played softball and had some pretty dirty clothes! The rental experience was one of the best, Shane was great to deal with and was very reachable if we had any questions. If St Louis hosts another tourney we are going to try and stay at his house again!!! Thank you for everything!!!
