*$10 Late Arrival Check-In Fee (please leave in cash), for guests arriving after 11pm (as it wakes up the house manager and requires that she gets up to lock up the home/turn off lights, etc)

Private bedroom with shared bath, in Cozy updated 95 year old Cottage in University City. What guests love about my home is the proximity: everything is a 5min drive away! Restaurants (The Loop!), shops, Washington University, & Forest Park! and the warm, hospitable host. Some guests have commented negatively on the neighborhood, although it is a safe, quiet family street, in the midst of being gentrified, some houses are less nice than others but safe.

This is a Private Bedroom in a 3 bedroom cottage, 1 other room is rented on Airbnb as well, the last room is the live-in host.

11x12 Private Bedroom with shared bathroom (shared with 1 other airbnb room). Room is furnished with a queen bed, which easily sleeps two, dresser and desk/chair.

Guest Access:

You will have access to the entire property (except for the other bedrooms, as it is a shared house). Hang out on the porch or backyard. Use the kitchen as you wish. Washer/Dryer in basement are open for guest use. There is even the option of parking in the two car garage (first come first serve), although parking on the street is easy too.

Interaction with Guests:

There is a live-in host who is a St. Louis expert! I will provide you with detailed instructions on how to access everything you need in the home upon booking and she will be there to make the home homey and to tell you all about St. Louis happenings, etc.

The Neighborhood:

The home is located in University City, a 5min drive to Washington University (North and Main Campus), The Loop (Restaurant Row, Shopping, Theater+), Forest Park, etc.

The home is close to a lot but St. Louis is not really set up for walking. The Summers are hot and humid and the Winter has snow. Car rental is recommended.

Only 15min from the airport!

Getting Around:

Although a car is recommended, you can rent a bike or take ubers around. The cottage is a 5min drive to the Del Mar Metro Link station, where you can take your bike on the train to explore other parts of the city like Downtown, Forest Park, St. Louis University, etc. The house is a 3min drive to The Loop (restaurant row), 5min drive to Washington University. It is a 5 min bike drive to Forest Park, which has a zoo, golf courses, museums, etc. Lots to do in the area.

Other Things to Note:

*$10 Late Arrival Check-In Fee, for guests arriving after 11pm (as it wakes up the house manager and requires that she gets up to lock up the home/turn off lights, etc)

-Please no more than 2 people, if you have more guests, we can direct them to the other rental room for a separate booking.

Fair, over exuberant host

  • 3 of 5

Everything was nice the host was a little over exuberant. She sort of took over the house so we didn't really feel like we could use the kitchen or the living room even though she said that we could if we just let her know. We had to be extra quiet as one of the guests needed that and that was a little inconvenient to be whispering. But the house was nice the room was in good shape. We are deciding if we would stay there again.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation were very nice and clean (as advertised) Getting inside was a breeze thanks to instructions emailed in advance. I did not get to meet the owner/manager but spent some time talking to a very nice lady staying in as a guest. I will definitely consider the place to stay again.
