Great location and very responsive host
This house was perfect for our party of 13 (4 adults and 8 scouts). A key pad is used for entry which was very convenient for our late arrival.
Based on a prior review, I was concerned about parking but we never had an issue with our two vehicles. Parking on the street was available directly in front of the house every day.
The location is very convenient - close to the zoo and the West End. There is also a Metro stop near by but we didn't use it. The house is on a quiet residential street and we felt very safe. We did see a charming coffee shop within walking distance and other eating establishments close enough to walk as well (On a scout's budget we ate in using Shawn's kitchen but the adults would have walked to the coffee shop each morning - next time).
The layout of the house worked very well too. The main floor is open with two eating bars around the kitchen and a large dining table. The entire main floor holds the common areas with a half bath. Three bedrooms and two baths are upstairs and 1 bedroom with bath is downstairs. There are also stairs leading to the porch so this house would be difficult to manage if you have mobility problems. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms had very good water pressure. There are large flat screen TVs in the main living area and most of the bedrooms.
Shawn was very responsive to our needs. He even came out to the house late on the first evening at our request. Many thanks Shawn. We would love to come back - but just the adults next time!
Great location and lots of space!
This property had tons of space and was in a great location. Well worth the rental rate. The basement area may still be a work in progress but it was usable. Would recommend a few “pointers” somewhere on the property for renters to read. I.e. bedroom door code, where to take trash and recyclables, etc. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to the St. Louis area.
Large space, a bit in progress, has essentials and more
We had a great time staying at the house. Only legitimate complaint I would make is that some of the “beds” are just mattresses on the floor. This wasn’t an issue for our relatively young group, but I could see it being an issue for families with older members. If it had said this in the booking description, we still probably would’ve booked, as the value is incredible - it’s in a great neighborhood with easy access to transit and roads to downtown or other areas. Kitchen was great - bring your own mugs if all 12 of you drink coffee, or just get a little creative with the glassware options. The main floor gets a bit chilly in the winter (as compared with upstairs & basement), but we didn’t fiddle with the HVAC too much, and there were plenty of blankets plus our own.
House on the whole - including the common areas - was great for our trip.
Shawn was very easy to communicate with and responded quickly.
Parking might be an issue if you had more than one vehicle (we didn’t, so wasn’t an issue), but there seemed to be somewhat ample street parking.
Beautiful home, perfect for big group
The house has been beautifully renovated and was perfect for our group of 7. There was plenty of room to spread out and still be together, the open plan made it easy to enjoy each other's company without being cramped. The beds are super comfortable, the bathrooms were spotless and had abundant hot water, and the host was friendly and communicative. We'd definitely come back!
