Thanks Hope, all Saint Louis neighborhoods can appear a little sketchy, I guess. Lot's of beautiful old turn of the century architecture like my house and a boarded up house here and there in both the rich and poor neighborhoods. Still me and my family feel safe, especially after getting to know our neighbors. The city was built for a million people and currently has just over three hundred thousand folks living here. Rest assured your reservation is helping us to make more improvements to our house and to our neighborhood. I'm sure had your traveled just a few blocks away to see some of the palatial homes in Holly Hills you would have left thinking this neighborhood has great promise. Mom likes her firm bed in the middle of the house, haha! We also use sealed mattress protectors unlike hotels to prevent bed bugs. Look forward to hosting you again.
