You'll be amazed by the Pinterest inspired eclectic artistic furnishings inside and out. There's plenty of room to get comfortable with 2 bedrooms and a living room featuring a bed hidden in the wall. The downtown entertainment/historic district is 3 short blocks away for you to easily explore. Morning sunrises over the big field, an occasional train pass through, and a soothing soak in our hot tub by the fire pit. Welcome to Ruby's Rental. You deserve a little down time.
This house is even cuter in person! All of the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is great for cooking. We also enjoyed the hot tub--perfect for a chilly fall evening! -Rachel (November 2016)
We had a great time here! The cottage is so tidy, quaint and decorated so artistically. We had fun just looking at all of the amazingly creative decor! -Kristi (June 2016)
My girl friends and I spent a weekend away at Ruby's Rental. It was perfect for a casual crew. We were able to make our own breakfast, spent an evening in the hot-tub. My favorite part was how easy it was to get in. It was so hassle free. Everything was in perfect condition. We would definitely return! -Allie (May 2016)

I visited four Airbnb properties before sharing my home and quickly determined what I liked and what I didn't like so much. I have had a number of careers in my life and working in the hospitality industry has been one of my favorites. It kind of gets in your blood so I enjoy the opportunity to work in the business again on a part time basis with Airbnb. My hosting style is simple, "surprise and delight" and then give your guests space. That's how I like to be treated when I travel. Having traveled around the world working in the cruise line industry, I feel like I have a good sense of what other cities have to offer. That's why I'm so passionate about St. Louis because it's such a gem. The opportunities here for affordable entertainment, dining, and home life are numerous. It's great to be a part of a resurgence for so many south city neighborhoods with all of their historic homes. This city was larger than Chicago in the early 1900's and so much of that architecture is still here. When you choose to stay in south city not only do you get a great location that is close to most everything you'd want to do here but you also help with the ongoing investment needed here. A quick tour of some of our neighborhoods here where money for re-development began to flow in the 80's will show you just how successful that can be. I'm also hosting back home in Sainte Genevieive County which to many is wine country. The city of Sainte Genevieve has much to offer with it's place in history in the birth of our nation. Much of the French architecture is intact so as a result it's destined to become a part of our National Park system, with lawmakers approval. Born in 1735 it is the oldest settlement west of the Mississipi River. Hope you'll come and visit me in both cities. I look forward to the opportunity of being your host.
