About this listing
Welcome to "The Burrow." This 1 bed/1 bath updated walk-out basement suite sits in the Dogtown area of St. Louis. Just 1 mile (30 minute walk) to Forest Park/zoo/art museum and 7 miles to downtown, this suite is the perfect stay for your time in STL.
Centrally located, this suite comfortably fits 4 people (1 queen bed, 1 full sleeper sofa). You will have your own entrance in the back, a full kitchen (refrigerator, stove-top oven, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, tea kettle), free wi-fi, cable t.v., and gas fireplace. To be more eco friendly, we have exchanged the Keurig for a 5-cup coffee maker. You will find 2 water bottles, granola bars, 6 eggs, butter, coffee and tea upon your arrival.
We have a Vizsla named Nuska who you will often find running around in the front yard. We have a large yard for living in the city and keep chickens in the very back. Feel free to ask for eggs, or if you're up for an adventure, go back and collect them whenever you'd like. Cook them up on the stove and they make a great breakfast.
For the kids we offer:
-a pack n play (Let us know beforehand and we will have it set up and waiting for you when you arrive)
-backyard basketball court
-chicken discovering and egg collecting
-Neighborhood park/playground 1 street away

Other Things to Note
This is the basement of our home in a family neighborhood so don't be surprised if you occasionally hear a dog bark, a chicken cluck, or a baby's faint cry. We have done everything we can to make the space as soundproof as possible but life still happens.
Our check in time is anytime after 3:00 pm and our check out time is anytime before 11:00 am. If for some reason you need some flexibility let us know and we will try our hardest to accommodate you the best we can.
Please treat our space with respect. Our desire in hosting is to provide a clean, comfortable place for you to relax and feel at home for an affordable price! Because of this, we don't tag on fees for extra people or cleaning. Please help us by leaving the space picked up. And if you have the time, doing your dishes before you leave is a huge help to us. Thank you!
This Suite by Emily and Andrew is the perfect spot in St Louis. The location was safe and everything we wanted to do in St Louis was close! The suite was just as described (even bigger than we imagined) and full of board games and other activities we loved using during our time... We couldn't imagine a better stay in the gorgeous and vibrant city of St Louis!
Emily and Andrew were super welcoming and gracious. The space was clean, outfitted with everything one would ever need and was perfect for us. We will definitely be back.
This was the perfect place to stop in St Louis. The apartment is very nice and comfortable. Andrew greeted us and even carried my bag for me. Although we didn't stay long, I enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to any of my friends.
Emily and Andrew were great; they were super friendly and helpful. The place is spacious with everything we needed for a week long stay. We felt very welcome. I would definitely stay here again.
This is my 3rd time staying with Emily and Andrew. They are genuine, down to earth, and simply generous and sweet people. I always look forward to coming back! The space is a a total A+ as well and the location is unbeatable.
Great location. This is the 2nd time I've been to St. Louis and the 2nd time I've stayed with Emily and Andrew. It was just as great as last time. I would recommend all my family and friends to stay here.
I have yet to meet more delightful AirBNB hosts (myself included, ha!). Emily and Andrew truly went above and beyond to make their space feel homey and welcoming and comfortable. The space has everything you could possibly need to sleep well, stay-in for the night, host a few friends, and more. They even left us eggs from their backyard chickens to cook in the morning... and they were delish! If you appreciate friendly folks with cozy sensibilities then you will definitely be happy you met and stayed with Emily and Andrew! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
About the Host, Emily And Andrew
Emily grew up in Florida and Andrew grew up in Illinois. We ended up in St. Louis and love it here. We are both educators and when not teaching, we spend our time doing projects around our house, tending the chickens and dog, doing any of the many free things around the city, cooking but also discovering new eateries around the Lou. We are members and community group leaders of The Journey. We love hosting and find joy in the comfort of our guests.
