Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property! A well-kept, nice place to stay. Eight of us ladies stayed here for a bachelorette party and enjoyed the warm, welcoming atmosphere. The hot tub was a perk, for sure! Of the four beds, only one said their bed was a tad stiff. Overall, our stay was a success and we loved every second!

The owners provided excellent service, instructions, and were very nice through the entire process. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to the area!

Grapevine rental Defiance MO

  • 2 of 5

While the house is fairly comfortable the beds are not. Some of us either slept on the couch or the floor rather than sleep in the bed in the room with the antique furniture. Considering what we paid for the rent the owner should invest in new mattresses. The location is good --close to St Louis , St Charles & vineyards in the area.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the house. It was clean, neat, nicely furnished, updated appliances. We had 6 adults and 2 toddlers, it was perfect for the toddlers to move about. As the week was unbelievable HOT, our trips into St Louis were in the morning - Grant's Farm, the Children's Museum, historic St Charles. When we returned around 2:30, we all jumped in the pool. That was a wonderful activity to look forward to. The pool was huge and clean, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, staying until it was time for our evening meal. We had plenty of room to prepare meals, and a table that accommodated all of us.

The convenience of the location - 9-10 miles to main highways, we had no trouble getting to our destinations. While we brought bikes to ride the Katy trail, it was just too hot. I think we'll give it a try in the fall, and hope to rent this house. Just convenient.

The only complaint I may register would be the deck boards need some work as nails were working their way out - in the scheme of things, a minor problem. We wished the weather would have been conducive to using the deck, as there was a table, chairs, umbrella. very inviting. We used the grill which was also top notch.

We will recommend this home and willingly use it again.

Wonderful Place for a Large Group

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 adults and 2 children stayed at this property in June 2013. We really enjoyed the home. Unfortunately, the weather was a little too chilly for our kids to use the pool, but the hot tub was perfect. The pool looked very clean though. The home itself felt a lot larger than what the pictures are able to portray. We, also, enjoyed walking on the trail behind the house. The owners were wonderful and kind to communicate with and helpful with our questions, before and during our stay. We would recommend this house to family and friends. We actually wanted to rent it again in October, but unfortunately it was already rented. I think that says something positive when you are wanting to return to a property again. I will be honest in saying that we felt the price would be pretty expensive for just one couple/family to rent. But, with several couples and people to split the rental fee with it was very reasonable. AND knowing everyone can fit very comfortably is a huge plus. Again, we really enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to stay again one day.

Located in the country's first viticulture area, with 10 wineries within 15 minutes, Defiance is the gateway to Missouri's Augusta wine district. Enjoy a day of sightseeing & take in some of the scenery while enjoying a glass of Missouri wine at some of the most beautiful wineries in the country! If outdoor activities are your thing, hop on the historic KATY trail located literally in the backyard of our property for a bike ride along the bluffs (bike rentals 1 block)! Take the kids fishing or hunting at Klondike Park or in the August A. Busch Memorial Area. Craving a history lesson? Travel 5 miles to the historic Daniel Boone Home. Casual & fine dining options within minutes to accommodate any budget. Beautiful outdoor & indoor wedding venues to make your day special, with spa & bridal makeup/hair packages available for your party. For a fabulous day trip, head out to downtown St. Louis & enjoy our art galleries, museums, The St. Louis Zoo, The Gateway Arch, or take in a sporting event at Busch Stadium (home of the St. Louis Cardinals), The Edward Jones Dome (home of The Rams), Scottrade Center (home of The Blues), or Chaifetz Arena (home of SLU men's & women's basketball). Cap off the evening on 'The Hill' where some of the best Italian cuisine in the country can be found. Spend the following day visiting The Missouri Botanical Gardens, Forest Park, The Butterfly House, Grant's Farm or the Science Center. Further south, but still a short day trip is the renowned Meramec Caverns, reputed hideout for the outlaw, Jesse James. If a more action-adventure packed day is what your after, visit Six Flags over Mid-America featuring a state of the art water park. Lastly, but surely not least (or all), depending on time of year, visit Alton, just a hop across the river into Illinois to see the bald eagles.
