Sunny, private room with a queen size bed in the finished basement of my sweet and simple home. It's less than a mile off Hwy 64/40 for easy, quick access to downtown. Best of all, though, it's only 1-2 miles to the St. Louis Zoo and Art Museum in Forest Park, Wash U, local breweries and more. Basically, it's quiet and convenient and you should feel right at home.

The space

You'll have a private room with wi-fi, one queen sized bed, a desk, and a dresser. Your room is in the lowest level of the house, but it has full sized windows and does not feel like a basement (see pics). There's space to store luggage and a bike or two in the hallway outside your room, too.

NOTE: You must be able to handle stairs. You walk up stairs to get into the house, down stairs to get into your room, and up and down more stairs to get into the bathroom. There are LOTS of STAIRS.

I allow guests to bring pets from time to time. I vacuum frequently, but I can't promise there isn't any lingering pet dander, so be aware of that if you are highly sensitive to it.

Guest access

BATHROOM:: There's only one bathroom in the house, so we're sharing. Before you get in the shower or plan to stay in the bathroom for more than a few minutes, just please just ask anyone else in the house if they need to use the room first, and give them a chance to get in and out. That way, you can take your time showering.

KITCHEN:: Open & available for use 24/7! I won't hear you if you're banging around cooking in there. Just clean up after yourself, please! Help yourself to the coffee and tea near the microwave. There are cups, glasses, bowls, and plates above the microwave and silverware below. Feel free to store your own food here.

Feel free to eat in the dining room. Please use coasters under drinks. I really like that table. :) You're welcome to play the board games, but ask first. I'll say yes 99% of the time, but I might be planning to play, so it's just better to ask.

The top floor is off limits. Your room is your private space while you're here, and the top floor is my private space.

Interaction with guests

I'll greet you and give you a tour when you arrive to make sure you get settled comfortably. After that, I'll leave you to your own devices, but if I am available, and you're up for a bit of socializing, I'd be happy to sit and tell you about my favorite places in St. Louis!

Come and go as you please and do as you like in your room and the common areas throughout the days/evenings. I have not had to enforce any sort of "quiet time."

Please text me if you need anything throughout the day. Really, text me for anything. It's no big deal to respond to texts and I will do so pretty quickly.

Other things to note

- Stairs. There are a lot of stairs here. You have to climb stairs to get into the house, go down stairs to get to your room, and go up and down stairs to get to the bathroom.
- I'm bicycle friendly. Bring it!
- Free street parking right out front in the street.

Even though is on the basement, the room has two windows and some natural light. It is comfortable and quiet. It is equipped with desk, chairs, and a big mirror, and there are some games and interesting books available. There are a lot of steps to get to the bathroom. But, unless you are in a hurry, it is not bad. In fact, the bathroom is also quite comfortable.

Amy is a great host with a great space for guests. The bathroom is beautiful. The only inconvenience is going to the bathroom from the room requiring a trip up and down stairs. I would not recommend the space to people who have difficulties with stairs, but it is perfect for most guests. Didn't stay very long but ti was worth the night's sleep!

I am a very easy-going host and hope that you feel at home while you are here. I work weekdays, sometimes from home, and am in and out on weekends. My friends come over occasionally on weekends for lunches, dinners, game nights, or whatever, but we're a sweet bunch of people and won't be crazy loud at odd hours. I'll let you know if you should expect to see people to be coming and going.

The snacks and breakfast staples here are healthy foods like fruits, nuts, maybe some not-too-sweet pastries, oatmeal, etc. You are welcome to bring other stuff, though if you have different tastes. I don't mind at all if you want to cook bacon or grilled cheese or whatever makes you happy.

My house's appeal is its so close to Forest Park, the university, downtown, and the interstate, but it's in a quiet, homey neighborhood, and it has a slightly quirky but cozy vibe. I wont win any interior decorating awards, but it is comfortable and inviting.
