This private room in the Garden District of Tower Grove is a special find for guests passing through St. Louis. My quiet, clean apartment includes off-street parking for one car, wifi, and free laundry facilities. Pets are welcome, too, so stop by!

The Space

The bedroom in this one-room apartment is all yours. It is clean and private, with a comfy full-sized bed and additional air mattresses in the closet.

Guest Access

We share the bathroom and kitchen area, so make yourself comfortable. Take a hot shower, cook yourself some supper using my pots and pans (you have to call it 'supper' when you're in Missouri!) or stash some leftovers in my fridge. Free laundry facilities are in the basement.

Interaction with Guests

Hosting with ABB has been a worthwhile endeavor and I want to keep hosting for a long time, so your comfort and satisfaction is very important.

Traveling can be tiring, so just let me know what makes you comfortable.

The Neighborhood

Even the most seasoned travelers have trouble figuring out where to stay in a strange city. On the one hand, you want a cost-efficient trip. On the other hand, you want to make sure that, however brief your stay, you feel safe in your surroundings. My apartment is within St. Louis city limits and close to many attractions, but still surrounded by a quiet neighborhood. My street is one-way and blocked off at the end, so there isn't any of the noise you'd associate with random traffic or a bar district. Guests park their cars behind the building and off the street, we have never had an issue.

I'm right in the heart of St. Louis, near some amazing attractions:
Tower Grove Park: 0.5 miles away
Missouri Botanical Garden: 2 miles away
Historic Soulard District: 2 miles away
Downtown St. Louis: 5 miles away
Busch Stadium: 5 miles away
Dogtown: 4 miles
Forest Park: 4 miles

Just want to grab a snack and catch some zzz's? There are some great 24-hour diners within a few minute's drive and, like any good St. Louisan, I can point you to the nearest White Castle or Imo's Pizza with ease.

Getting around

St. Louis is a mixed bag. I suggest using St. Louis' Metro Transit website to help you plan your trip if you're trying to decide whether or not to rent a car or take public transit.

The Grand Metrolink station is 1.5 miles away, and you're less than five minutes from Highway 44, Highway 64/40, and Highway 55. Highway 70 is less than ten minutes away, and you're 18 miles from the airport.

If you're a bike-lover like me, St. Louis is a great city to see while you're rolling around on two wheels. Guests are welcome to keep their bikes parked safely in my basement during their stay. Wear a helmet, safety first!

Other Things to Note

Children and pets are welcome, but please let me know in advance if there will be little people or 'furry friends'. I like having extra treats and goodies ready!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our second time staying with Maria and was equally as wonderful as the first! For the price, location and cleanliness, it can't be beat!!

  • Maria met and greeted me with warmth and welcome. The neighborhood was urban, well maintained and easy to maneuver. The guest room was very clean as was the bathroom. As there is no living room, I would suggest a comfortable chair with good reading light in the bedroom. Also, a coffee pot in the kitchen for morning wake up would be a nice touch, with coffee and creamer available.

  • Our host made us feel welcome with the notes she left and her prompt reply to my confirming phone call the night before we stayed at her house. The neighborhood was great, older housing stock and a nearby wine bar with an outdoor seating area that we enjoyed one evening.

  • Loved staying with Maria, the location is perfect for any destination, two minutes from a major highway. The room is lovely, clean, Maria is a very good host. Her cat is gorgeous and very sweet, will follow you into the bathroom if you let it...
    My only comment is that since there is absolutely no place nearby to have a cup of coffee, no store, no restaurant within at least a mile, you need to be prepared to bring your own coffee machine and toast if you are one of those people who can't face the world without it. I strongly recommend the Art Museum brunch within 20 minutes distance. And the Art Museum itself, which is a revelation!

  • Maria was very friendly and hospitable. She allowed us to use both bed and air mattress. Maria's apartment was clean and her communication was excellent. It would be a pleasure to stay with her again.

Human Resources
Hi! I'm Maria, a 31 year old Human Resources Director from St. Louis, Missouri. I live in the city of St. Louis or, more specifically, Tower (website hidden) is known for its beautiful homes, eclectic culture, Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden. The area that I live in is known as the 'Garden District'. I host with Air BnB because I like providing travelers with an affordable and comfortable place to stay while they're in St. Louis, a welcome alternative from an overpriced and impersonal hotel room. Admittedly, its a small apartment without a lot of fancy extras, but I put sincere effort into providing a safe, clean, and quiet place for guests and my reviews reflect that. ABB hosting is a great way for me to put extra money towards my big dream of building my own tiny house. If you do an internet search for 'Tumbleweed Houses', I'm warning you, you're bound to fall in love just like I did. Other than daydreaming about cute cottages and cozy campers, I like playing sports, running, shooting at the range, and riding my bike.
