About the property

Our place is an eclectic 3bedroom/1.5bath townhouse in the awesome Soulard neighborhood with all of its historic charm. Conveniently located, it is just 5 minutes south of downtown and within 10-15 minutes of most major attractions in St. Louis. Although nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, it is within walking distance of some of the best night life and restaurants in St. Louis. Enjoy a loft style home with easy parking right outside of your door.

We have tried to create a space that is unique, fun, cozy and comfortable. Our place could be a romantic getaway for two or a fun place to share with friends. Everyone can have their privacy as there are three separate bedrooms. The full bath features double sinks and a combination shower/jetted tub. There is also a convenient half bath on the first floor. In the spring summer and fall, enjoy our private, brick paved courtyard.

If you choose to dine in, you will find a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your meal. There is a great neighborhood grocery store about a 3 minute walk away for anything you might need. We will provide some complimentary snacks and beverages.

We will do whatever we can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

About The Owner

Jane is a retired school counselor. Ray and his son are professional rehabbers of old historic homes and buildings. We love the city and enjoy traveling to other cities to explore their neighborhoods. We are always on the hunt for antiques, unusual items and treasures. You will see a little bit of that at our place.

We have three grown children and two grandchildren who we love spending time with.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Festive Winter Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely beautiful and comfortable home. It is as perfect as the pictures... Immaculate and seemingly brand new. This is a very comfortable home for lounging in the courtyard or by the fireplace. Linens are high end and pristine. The decor is stylish and fun. A quick walk will take you to a wonderful market, many restaurants and bars. The owner provides all the hotel amenities you would expect and more. We stayed here for three weeks this December including Christmas. The home was adorn with Christmas decorations and a tree! The location includes great parking and easy access to everything St. Louis. I am a five star hotel aficionado and I never thought a VRBO or Homeaway could match up. This property proved me wrong! Our stay could not have been more perfect.

Historical, Charming and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this eclectic townhouse for my husband and I, and our son and daughter-in-law. We love its energy and historical charm! Its spacious, allowing privacy and yet a great place to come together and hang out. Close to all popular St. Louis attractions and yet wonderful setting in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. The kitchen is big enough for all four of us to cook meals together, we love this. I also love the wonderful deep tub and plush towels. My husband's favorite is the brick patio in the backyard. Ray and Jane are such wonderful hosts, we feel like this is our St. Louis home!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home in Historic Soulard! Thanks to Ray and Jane for their hospitality and attention to detail. Ray and Jane knocked it out of the park with the birthday balloons, a chalkboard wishing my wife a happy birthday, coffee, soda, and the list goes on and on. It is definitely the little things that go a long way. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Very nice property in a convenient location and wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Ray met us at the property and showed us the ropes The kitchen was stocked with yogurt, orange juice, coffee, biscotti, and snacks. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, etc., and the beds were great, the towels plentiful, and the house was charming.

It was our first time in St. Louis, and while we had some plans, Ray recommended some things to see, which where all winners. I really don't know how the townhouse could have been better! Thanks!

Located in historic Soulard , one of the oldest neighborhoods in St. Louis, charm abounds. Take a leisurely stroll to enjoy the architecture of the old homes or to grab a bite to eat & drink at a number of quaint bars and restaurants within walking distance. Be sure to take in the Anheuser Busch Brewery tour and biergarten which is just three blocks from our home. Don't miss the Venice Cafe, just another block from the brewery. It's truly the most unique bar in St. Louis. Soulard Farmers' Market, one of the oldest in the country, is a fun place to visit on a Saturday morning. You will find a vast array of produce, poultry, meats, baked goods, etc, including many vendors selling their wares. If the weather is nice, there is no place better to dine outdoors than McGurk's beautiful patio, about a 10 minute walk from our place. Before you leave the area, be sure to check out Lafayette Square, an old neighborhood filled with beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants and shops.

Downtown is minutes away with all of its attractions: The Arch, Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village, the National Blues Museum, City Museum, Scottrade Center, Washington Avenue, the Old Courthouse, the Convention Center and more.

Forest Park with our famous St. Louis Zoo and Planetarium, Art Museum, and History Museum is about a 10 to 15 minute drive away. The beautiful Missouri Botanical Garden is a must see, also about a 10 minute drive away. There is a really nice public pool with water slide, diving board, diving platform, climbing wall, lazy river, toddler section with play structure and a concession stand. It is called The Pavilion at Lemay and is about a 15-20 minute easy drive down the highway from our place.

This is such a convenient location at the hub of all the major highways in St. Louis.
