About the property

Crisp Private Room in Shared Cozy Cottage

The home is located in University City, 5min drive to Washington University (North and Main Campus), 3 min drive to The Loop (Restaurant Row), 5-8 min drive Forest Park (larger than Central Park in NYC with Zoo, museums, golf course), etc.

LGBTA friendly household. No smoking indoors.

Although a car is recommended and the property has a 2 car garage, you may also rent a bike or Uber around town.

11x12 Private Bedroom with shared bathroom (shared with 1 other vacation rental room) and a private entrance from the back. Room is furnished with a queen bed, which easily sleeps two, dresser and desk/stool.

Only, In this room will we consider pets, as it has a private entrance which leads to the backyard and it has laminate wood floors instead of carpet. Please note that your pet is not allow to roam the rest of the inside of the house and should not be disruptive to the host, other guests, or neighbors. Thank you.

House is shared by another vacation rental room and a full time live-in host. It is a 3 bedroom cottage.

You will have access to the entire property. Hang out on the porch or backyard. Use the kitchen as you wish. Washer/Dryer in basement are open for guest use. There is even the option of parking in the two car garage (first come first serve), although parking on the street is easy too.

There is a live-in host who is a St. Louis expert! I will provide you with detailed instructions on how to access everything you need in the home upon booking and she will be there to make the home homey and to tell you all about St. Louis happenings, etc.

Fair, over exuberant host

  • 3 of 5

Everything was nice the host was a little over exuberant. She sort of took over the house so we didn't really feel like we could use the kitchen or the living room even though she said that we could if we just let her know. We had to be extra quiet as one of the guests needed that and that was a little inconvenient to be whispering. But the house was nice the room was in good shape. We are deciding if we would stay there again.

Very nice experience

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation were very nice and clean (as advertised) Getting inside was a breeze thanks to instructions emailed in advance. I did not get to meet the owner/manager but spent some time talking to a very nice lady staying in as a guest. I will definitely consider the place to stay again.
