Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this house for a couple of nights on a quick getaway from real life. The house is close to everything. I don't think we had to drive more than 10 minutes to get any where that we wanted to go. The house was very clean and had all the comforts of home. I will definitely stay here again the next time we visit St. Louis.

Charming little house close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

This house was in a great location for our family. Close to the zoo, airport, botanical gardens, SLU, and a target just down the street. Alex, the owner, was super easy to work with and accommodating for us when we needed to get into the house a little early. I highly recommend this rental!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here while moving to the area. This was such a fun place to stay! Lots of places to eat out within walking distance or you can cook out in the adorable back yard! If you want a true "city" experience, stay here!

Lovely Home!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. My daughter lives one block over, so very convenient. The house is older and has many wonderful characters that made us feel at home (Our house is 104 years old). The hardwood floors are amazing, they creaked but that is what we are use to. The updated kitchen is beautiful and the onsite laundry is a plus. Parking was absolutely no problem for us, we stayed Thursday-Sunday. They have a binder that gave great locations to eat and visit. We didn't need it since our daughter lives in St. Louis and absolutely loves it there. Not a whole lot of action at night, except for the Hideaway bar across the street. But we didn't hear a thing. This house is located perfectly to many wonderful places to visit and eat.

Great location - very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at this house - close to many restaurants and fun things to do - the bed was very comfortable. Parking is a little challenging particularly for a second car when family came to pick us up - but the kitchen was nicely appointed and the benefits of having room to spread out makes this house a much better choice than a hotel room.

A gem at reasonable rates

  • 4 of 5

We felt at home from the minute we entered this charming St. Louis gem. Alex, the owner, was helpful and responsive to all our questions. What we liked:

Comfortable bed: it felt like sleeping on a cloud.

Modern/convenient kitchen: Although this is an older property, the kitchen appliances were modern and worked well.

Location: barely a 15 minute drive to Forest Park, City Museum and Gateway Arch.

Wifi: easy to access and quite fast.

A few caveats:

Stairs: it's an older property and the front stairs are a bit uneven. The stairs to the basement washer/dryer are steep and narrow. We used caution on all stairs.

Noise: the house is near the intersection of two busy streets; however, vehicle noise subsided by 9:30.PM. We travel with earplugs, but never had to use them. On the last night, the neighbor's dog barked continuously from 6 - 9:30, but then stopped.

Shower: we would have liked a rubber shower mat as the tub floor was a bit slippery. Used a towel on the tub floor and had no problem.

In spite of the caveats, we will definitely stay here again when we return to St. Louis.
