About owner/property manager

Hello my name is Molly! My fiancé Alex and I both grew up in St. Louis! The newest member of our family is baby Mason- he's 10 months old! We do pretty much everything as a family and wouldn't want it any other way! It is our highest priority to ensure every guest has an exceptional stay with us!

Great location - very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at this house - close to many restaurants and fun things to do - the bed was very comfortable. Parking is a little challenging particularly for a second car when family came to pick us up - but the kitchen was nicely appointed and the benefits of having room to spread out makes this house a much better choice than a hotel room.

A gem at reasonable rates

  • 4 of 5

We felt at home from the minute we entered this charming St. Louis gem. Alex, the owner, was helpful and responsive to all our questions. What we liked:

Comfortable bed: it felt like sleeping on a cloud.

Modern/convenient kitchen: Although this is an older property, the kitchen appliances were modern and worked well.

Location: barely a 15 minute drive to Forest Park, City Museum and Gateway Arch.

Wifi: easy to access and quite fast.

A few caveats:

Stairs: it's an older property and the front stairs are a bit uneven. The stairs to the basement washer/dryer are steep and narrow. We used caution on all stairs.

Noise: the house is near the intersection of two busy streets; however, vehicle noise subsided by 9:30.PM. We travel with earplugs, but never had to use them. On the last night, the neighbor's dog barked continuously from 6 - 9:30, but then stopped.

Shower: we would have liked a rubber shower mat as the tub floor was a bit slippery. Used a towel on the tub floor and had no problem.

In spite of the caveats, we will definitely stay here again when we return to St. Louis.

Nice home in a nice neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our two night stay in this charming home! My husband and I plus our two boys enjoyed the home after FUN filled days in St. Louis. The home is very clean and all appliances worked great, we cooked all our meals at the home. Off road parking was great and the fenced back yard was perfect for the boys to play. The beds were extremely comfy. The noise from the street was minimal. We couldn't think of anything that was missing. A great home away from home for sure. Close to everything. We enjoyed St. Louis Zoo, City Museum, and Ice Cream at Tower Grove Creamery....all were GREAT and very close to the home. We can't wait to visit St. Louis MO again! Thanks for renting this house out for all to enjoy a little bit of St. Louis!!

Cozy home, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and our two dogs) stayed here, as we were wanting to spend a few days in St. Louis. It is tastefully decorated, with a very nice breakfast area. All the homes in this area (The Hill) are apparently fairly old; this one has been very nicely redone. The only "non-positive" thing I could say is that the bedroom needed a small dresser to put clothes in, but no biggie. We liked the neighborhood, and enjoyed walking our dogs around it. We were able to park our van in the garage out back, which was nice. I also enjoyed jogging in the neighborhoods, and the nearby parks. The house is about 15 minutes away from all the attractions in downtown St. Louis, so not far away at all. We plan to come back to St. Louis one more time before we retire in a few years, and hopefully will be able to stay here again!

Great location and house.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property--kitchen well equipped. The front porch light was out which is necessary when coming in @ night. The breakfast area is great. House has lots of light. I would recommend adding a little table for the back bedroom as there is no where to sit anything--also a picture for that room. Would stay there again.

Owner's Response: A credit card company actually contacted me stating that you tried to cancel your payment a day before your trip. I apologize that last minute cancellation has to go through homeaway. We have a very systematic approach with all of our guest and looked back and you were in fact sent the check-in instructions 15 days prior to your travel. If for some reason you didn't receive it, it has always been extremely important to my wife and i to always be available in the event a problem arises. Homeaway denied your refund because there wasn't one call, one message, or one email stating that you were having trouble getting in the unit. In fact, we actually had to pay our cleaning company for their gas to show up still because none of us were aware that you backed out of your trip. My email, my wifes email, my phone number, and my wifes phone number are all listed on the reservation and not once did we receive a call with trouble. Thanks! Alex & Molly
