Located in historic Brentwood, a St. Louis County burb, the house is close to numerous shopping centers, including the famous St. Louis Galleria. Located a half-mile from Interstate 64, a short drive will take you to Forest Park, with its nationally-renowned zoo, museums, and outdoor theater. A few more miles down the highway will take you to downtown St. Louis, with its many sporting events, sites, and attractions. In addition, the house is within walking distance from the Brentwood Metrolink stop, which makes it easy and affordable to explore the city without a vehicle.
Convenient street parking available.
Relax, sleep in, enjoy. Pets welcome as long as they get along with dogs and are potty trained (of course accidents happen). Let me know if you need a kennel for the night. You are welcome to use the kitchen, please clean after yourself.
Karen was a great host. She was very easy going and kind. I stayed in her cozy space for two months, and felt very at home and comfortable. Karen went above and beyond when it came to any repairs or requests that were needed during my stay, always responding very quickly. She allowed me to use the kitchen and have food storage space which was great for a long stay.
Karen's place is hands down the best lodging in St Louis. She is a superb host and her three dogs will welcome you every time your come and go! My only regret is that I cannot stay longer! Highly recommend.
Excellent experience -- highly recommend!
Karen's loft suite is cozy and feels private. There is a very nice lounge area (pictured) overlooking the back yard. A study area at the top of the stairs has a desk with coffee maker (the cup kind), the wifi code and a printer. There is a spacious bathroom and a cozy bedroom area. Karen is kind and accommodating. Her home is convenient to a lot of destinations. It's under 10 minutes to University City and Forest Park and is right next to a huge shopping district in Clayton. We stayed on a Friday night and it was quiet. We would stay here again!
Karen's place is first class and in a perfect location! You will not find a better host or place to stay!
