Becky and Houdini were amazing hosts! They made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. Becky was great at communicating with us prior to our visit as well as throughout our stay. She also provided us with many suggestions of things to do in the area. We loved chatting with her over morning coffee and swapping travel stories. The house was very nice and relaxing and the location was perfect for our brief stay in St. Louis. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody traveling to the area!
I had an absolutely wonderful stay with Becky. She was incredibly friendly and knew the area super well. The house is walking distance from the Grove and Forest Park. The room was spotless, beautifully decorated, and had a comfy bed and a private balcony. I can't recommend staying here enough!
Everything about staying with Becky was lovely. The house was beautiful, the neighborhood really cool, she was great about communicating so we could meet up on arrival, and the room was extremely comfortable. A perfect place to make a St. Louis base, especially if you're doing anything at either SLU or Washington University's Medical campus!
Our stay with Becky was our first AirBNB experience and it was nothing short of wonderful. Her home was very neat and open, yet cozy. We felt right at home. Becky possessed a wealth of knowledge about the areas surrounding us and was full of suggestions for places to go. We felt safe walking the sidewalks in the neighborhood and found many interesting restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. We didn't know quite what to expect, but our stay was not awkward at all and was like staying with a friend. We highly recommend this as an option on your next trip to St. Louis!
