My place is close to the airport and major highways, so it's perfect for a road trip or if flying through STL. You’ll love it because of the incredibly comfortable bed, your own living room, the amazing luxurious bathroom, and proximity to the airport and major highways. The house is in a residential, quiet area (no noise from planes/hwy/neigbs) and you will have plenty of privacy. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
This is a large family home with only two people now living here. The entire bottom floor is your space. You basically have a studio apt to yourself on this floor. This includes your bedroom, a very large bathroom, a sitting area, a living room portion with couch and tv (netflix and amazon prime), and access to the back patio. The bottom floor is all open, except the bathroom so the bedroom does not have a lockable door and instead, a thick curtain that can separate the room from the other space. The pullout couch and air mattress will only be set up if there are 4-6 guests staying.
You also have access to the kitchen and main floor half bathroom.
The backyard is very large and for kids, there is a swing set in good condition (bought for the grandkids a few years ago).
You will receive a key upon arrival.
Interaction with guests
My partner and I live in the house on the top level and will be sharing the kitchen with you. We both have flexible schedules, so will happily be available for you when needed, but also will give you your privacy. You will receive our cell numbers upon arrival as well.
Many times, we do not cross paths with our guests, so the space truly feels very private. Whether we have the opportunity to meet you or not, we'd love to give you any advice or directions. :)
Other things to note
We are available to pick you up/drop you off from the airport for $15 cash each way if arranged in advance. A cab after tip usually costs about $20-25, Uber $30.
- Smoking NOT allowed in house, but connecting back patio is completely fine for smokers. As long as you respect our house and space, we will be happy. :)
My partner, Rory and I are an active couple who frequently travel! Rory is 30 and from Wales. Mary Rae is 27 and from the States. We are newlyweds and currently live in St. Louis, MO.
We enjoy being outdoors, meeting new people, and at the end of the day having a comfortable place to chill. :)
