About Steve & Terry Cacciatore
Steve and I grew up in St Louis and love our city. We have a carpentry business and have gutted and rehabbed this apartment, which is attached to our home that we converted from a duplex to a single family. My husband Steve grew up on 'The HIll' our cities historic Italian neighborhood and attended St Louis U High, and SIUE where he went to college on a full soccer scholarship, and at 63 still plays the game! I have a yoga teaching certification and help in the carpentry business as well as run the vacation rentals. We have 6 grown children between us and a total of 6 grandchildren! We love to spend our Friday nights cooking and sharing wine with friends and family. My husband is an amazing cook and an avid fisherman. We love to play Pickle ball, ride our bikes around the city, and play in a bocce league 8 months of the year, at our favorite neighborhood pub. When we retire we plan to travel the US!
Why Steve & Terry Cacciatore chose Southwest Garden
Our carpentry company bought this property in 2008 to tear down and build new town homes overlooking Sublette park, but the economy had other ideas. In 2010 we adjusted our vision and began a long, (still in progress) rehabilitation of the buildings, which at the time were 2 sets of attached duplexes. We gutted both buildings and spent weekends rebuilding the interiors, converting the large units into our single family home. Buy 2012 we were moved in and then started the same process on the 2 smaller apartment units. The transformation has been an amazing process and we wouldn't live anywhere else!
What makes this Apartment unique
St Louis was settled by the French, and Missouri had an amazingly prolific clay mines. As a result the city is littered with gorgeous, rich red/brown brick architecture. I loved that our buildings had the original city style architecture with flat roofs and tall ceilings. Our home has 8' pocket doors, a parlor and 2 staircases. Originally they had fireplaces in every room and gas lighting. This house had many of those features so I feel very fortunate to have one of these historic looking buildings. The apartments we now rent on VRBO were smaller and perfect for rental property, so we updated them as well with all new HVAC, electric and plumbing. We live across from a lovely city park and can walk to our favorite restaurants and to play bocce in our bocce league, spring, summer and fall at our favorite Bar, Milo's Bocce Garden. I love the people in this neighborhood, many are people we grew up with. We are close to Forest Park, downtown, the Central West End, Soulard and Busch Stadiu,m where we love to watch our famous Cardinals play baseball. I wouldn't trade my neighborhood for any other in the city. We feel very fortunate to be here. Now, if only I can convince my husband to get a golf cart for getting around our neighborhood and style!!

This space was perfect! Very charming and updated, the outside patio was perfect for coffee in the morning and wine at night. Terry and Steve were very accommodating; we got to meet Terry and she recommended some places to check out in the neighborhood (Milos was great!) Zero complaints, would definitely stay here again!
We enjoyed having you! So happy you were able to enjoy the balcony! I love sitting on porches drinking wine! Hope to see you both again! Take care.
Another great stay!
This was our second stay here. We are a small family, with two young boys. This apartment was perfect for a long weekend in STL. We had the pleasure of meeting Terri this time, and she was very accommodating. Great location with a nice park across the street. We will definitely stay here next time we come to town.

The VRBO was great!
Great location, clean, modern, and perfect. Was there for work but this location made me feel like I was on vacation.
Heaven in The Hill !!
We were so happy when we arrived to find this great little place in the middle of a great area of St. Louis. The room was clean, and inviting, and we fell in love with it right away. Steve and his wife had it all ready, and an instruction book with everything clearly marked on how to use, places to see.... we walked all over the place ! Just a few minutes from all the attractions, and a park right next door. This will be our GO TO PLACE anytime we are in St. Louis again !!!
There are several breweries in the city. Guests and schedule a tour of Anheuser-Busch Brewery, or visit one of the smaller breweries in the area.
If you like bocce, we have a favorite local pub that has a few outdoor courts. Milo's is a favorite of ours.
Some of the best Italian restaurants in the city are located on 'the Hill', the Italian neighborhood we are boarded on, and spend much of our time.
There are some very nice yoga studios nearby, and a YMCA if you have a membership, they have a pool, a basketball court, etc.
My favoite movie theatre is locate in the famous, Chase Park Plaza Hotel, located 10 minuts from our front door.
