**THIS UNIT IS SIMILAR TO A HOTEL ROOM (only nicer)**
This is a REAR, 2nd FLOOR unit that is private and self contained, with keypad entrance, approximately 250 square feet. It is a large bedroom with a full bathroom (tub/shower), kitchenette (fridge/microwave). **Please do not expect a full kitchen and a multi-room unit (see photos which accurately depict this space)**. This is NOT the 1st floor apartment. This space is suited more for short term stays. It's the perfect size for 2 people who need a place to sleep or kick back between activities in the city.

The house was built circa 1865 and was on the verge of demolition when we acquired it in 2019. We have restored it with an all new interior while keeping its exterior charm.

It’s the perfect place to stay for a night (or 7!) in the city. We’re close to so many popular and cool places, most just a $7 Uber ride away!

The unit has a smart tv with access to all the streaming services (with your subscription). High speed WiFi is available for all your social media surfing needs (or your work, if you’re here on business).

Bed is a comfy, premium memory foam queen sized mattress that sleeps 2. There is a ceiling fan and a heater/air conditioner that you can adjust to your needs.

The room includes a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker (including coffee, tea, creamer, sugar).

There is a full bathroom with a tub/shower and plenty of plush towels for your bathing pleasure, as well as shampoo, conditioner, and soap (hey, you never know if you might forget something). There is also a closet for you to store your things.

The windows let in tons of natural light, and there are room darkening curtains for when you want to keep the light out. The place is really light and airy and a great spot to kick back and relax whether you’re there for business or pleasure.

Parking is on a one way street, which is quiet, and the neighbors are delightful. Rear parking is reserved for 1st floor guests, but may be available on occasion (host will let you know).

Access to the unit is via a private, rear keypad entry. Guests have access to a large deck and gas fire pit which is shared with the unit next door.

We have plenty of security lighting, including motion lights and dusk to dawn lights for our guests’ safety.

Guest access
Guests have access to their private units, as well as the large shared deck and firepit. The 3rd floor deck is private for the 3rd floor tenant only. 2nd floor guests should not be in the front yard; this space belongs to the 1st floor guests.

Other things to note
There is an apartment above the unit that has a regular, full time tenant and is also accessed from the rear. Please do not go up the 3rd floor stairs, this is private. There is an identical unit next door on the 2nd floor that may or may not have guests. The first floor is also a separate 1 bedroom Airbnb apartment that also may or may not have guests. Off street parking is for the 3rd floor tenant and 1st floor guest only.

We dig diversity, and we’d love to have you regardless of who you love, what your political or religious affiliations are, what color you are, what you look like, and even if you like to wear socks with your sandals. We just ask that you respect the space and treat it as you’d treat your own.

Location

St. Louis, Missouri, United States

If you are unfamiliar with South St. Louis, it is a super cool area of the city with tons of diversity and things to see and do. Many of the "neighborhoods" are up and coming and undergoing a revitalization, 1 property at a time. You may see a few vacant buildings and occasional run down properties, but please know that the beautiful, historic buildings of Marine Villa (where we are located) are being brought back to life one-by-one, and our neighborhood is safe and made up of tons of fantastic and involved neighbors.

The house sits in the neighborhood of Marine Villa, which is close to the Soulard, Benton Park, Benton Park West, Fox Park, McKinley Heights, and Lafayette Square neighborhoods. It’s walking distance to the Cherokee Antique District, the Brewery, tons of great cafes, bars, and shops. You’re no more than 10-15 minutes driving distance to any of the great sights of St. Louis. The neighborhood is low crime and quiet, and it’s one of the fastest up and coming areas.

The house is close to all major highways and thoroughfares.

My husband and I have have a passion for St. Louis City historic house restoration, and we’ve rehabbed 6 in the area so far. We strive to keep as many of the historic elements of these gorgeous homes as we can, but, often they are in such a deteriorated condition we when we get them, that there’s just not much left. Rehabbing historic houses has turned us into St. Louis City history nerds, and we love learning more about life in the city in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. We research the history of every house we rehab and absolutely love seeing the names of past residents of 100+ years ago. We grew up in Arnold, MO and spent the last 20 years in Barnhart, MO which is fairly rural. It was a 20 minute drive to get anywhere. After rehabbing our very first house in Barnhart, we accidentally stumbled upon a really cool City house we decided to tackle. We immediately fell in love with the City and moved into one of our own rehabs (which is walking distance from our Airbnb) in 2018. We’ve never looked back, and absolutely love our city and all the things it has to offer. We have 2 grown kids, one of which lives just down the street from our Airbnb. We’re super excited to share our latest rehab with you! We hope you love your stay in it as much as we loved bringing it back to life!
