Interaction with guests
Please feel free to ask if you need something or have any concerns. We are happy to interact with guests and provide recommendations if wanted, or we can be pretty hands off and let you enjoy your stay. I am always happy to have a chat over coffee or tea, and our little dogs appreciate a kind word, treat, or pet once they warm up to you.
Other things to note

Please use drink coasters on all wood surfaces.
Please remove shoes upon entry and no shoes on furniture.
Please do not sleep on decorative/accent pillows and shams.
No overnight guests not on reservation.
If you break something, let me know.
Park on Tower Grove Avenue if driving. Parking spots on Gibson Avenue are limited and for residents.

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.
Additional note to guests:
Either myself or the housekeeper may enter your room periodically 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.
