No Smoking, Please. Large rear deck is continuous along the full length of the river-facing side of the building, so adjoins with 2 other units -- it is more than large enough for everyone and you have your own area, but please be a good and courteous neighbor, as I expect the others will be to you as well! ;-)

This is a beautiful unit amongst several others hosted by the same person in a great historical building with fantastic views of the Mississippi River. Several great places to eat within easy walking distance. The unit was very clean and well appointed. Mike was a generous and knowledgeable host. This would definitely be our first choice when returning to the area in the future. Also, with the other units in the building this would be a great place to house several people for a large family gathering, reunion, wedding etc.

I was planning a girls weekend and came across Mike's place in Alton. It ended up being perfect for our group. All of the women who stayed commented on how nice the apartment was and that they'd stay again. It was a great size for our group of 10, and we also rented the studio next door. We only stayed one night but wish we could've stayed longer to enjoy the wonderful deck. Mike was great to communicate with and was always quick to respond which was important because we visited in the midst of the recent Missouri/Illinois flooding and wanted to ensure our travel plans wouldn't be impacted (they weren't!) Mike is just a great and friendly host and we'd recommend him to anyone! In addition, the apartment is in a good location and is very clean and well decorated.
