Other things to note
We are in the city. It can get pretty loud here on weekends. You can hear live music from the entertainment district. Guests should plan on parking on Tower Grove Avenue, and entering through the front door. Guests will be given a pin code for door access upon booking. You car is fine to park on Tower Grove, just be mindful to keep it locked and not leave valuables in sight.
No food in bedrooms.
Please use drink coasters on all wood surfaces.
Please remove shoes upon entry and no shoes on furniture.
If you break or damage something, let me know.
Park on Tower Grove Avenue if driving. Parking spots on Gibson Avenue are limited and for residents.
Please do not sleep on decorative/accent pillows and shams.
No overnight guests not on reservation.
Please send a text or email upon check-out, so we may appropriately prepare for future guests, thanks!
No use of illegal drugs on property. Pot is not currently legal in MO. Sorry.
Additional note to guests:
Either myself or the housekeeper may enter your room once a day to remove dirty towels and linens, glassware, and to place chocolates or other requested items. Your personal items are not touched. If this is a concern to you, please let me know.
Security Disclosure: Security cameras outside record all footage if you are coming and going from either the front or back entrance.
A note about reviews:
Please contact me during the stay if there are any any issues or concerns. Less than five star reviews in any area severely impact a host's rating on Airbnb.
Value: Home is one of the nicest in the area, and offers more amenities than most similar listings. Hotels start at $119 per night in area minimum.
Communication: Guests can contact me by phone, email, or text, and I usually respond in under one hour. And of course, I try to be available during the stay.
Per confirmation with Airbnb, this is whether location was accurately represented. Not how close you are to your desired destination. I cannot move my home. You can check the general vicinity of my listing prior to booking, and listing details to decide whether the location is good for you. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the train from my home. We are one block from the "Grove" entertainment district, and a 15 minute walk to the CWE or Forest Park. We are one mile from "the Hill", and a short drive from South Grand, downtown, and Soulard.
Especially if you are new to Airbnb, or an infrequent traveler, each stay will be different, but if you use the service often, and have comparisons, you will see that I offer allot of details and amenities that many hosts don't.
So please consider carefully before reviewing, and be honest and kind.
Please feel free to ask if you need something. We are happy to chat over coffee and tea and provide recommendations if desired. Our schedules vary widely so we are in and out at all different times. We are not "early risers" so if you are.... great, if not, that's fine too. Just do whatever you normally would. We are up and down the upper stairs a few times during the night to let the dogs out the front door.
Hello!!! Thank you for your interest. My husband and I are transplants from MI and FL, living in the city of STL. We are small business owners so we won't be around too much but feel free to ask any questions. We also have three small geriatric dogs in residence. This is a great location and a decent hotel room around here starts at $129 per night. When there are conventions or events going on, prices are higher. Are you are into biking, nightlife, dining, museums, cultural events, and a diverse environment, this is for you!
