Please be my guest in my art- and book-filled townhouse with modern style in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood. Only two blocks away from Forest Park and Metrolink station. Five minute walk to the Delmar Loop. Peaceful in the center of the action.

The space

My home is the best possible St. Louis City location for seeing attractions in Forest Park or the Delmar Loop. Even though I am squarely in the city and close to restaurants, concert venues, and public transit, the house is in a very quiet community that rings a small, grassy park.

Guest access

Guests in my home enjoy two serene rooms on the top floor of the house: one is a traditional bedroom with a queen-sized bed and the other is an office/study with a very comfortable futon (full-sized spring mattress) and coffee station. My guests also have a full bath with a shower/tub that isn't shared - unless Merlin, more over-curious cat follows them in! Guests also have full use of the house except for my personal bedroom suite, office, and garage.

Interaction with guests

I'm not only available to help and give recommendations during your stay, I enjoy it; that's one of the great advantages to staying in the home where your host actually lives!

Dara was so kind and easygoing, and gave excellent suggestions on navigating my way around. She also made sure I had the coffee and breakfast I needed to get me through my travel day! Merlin is a precious floof of a cat, and I cherish our brief friendship.

Dara is a prompt communicator and does a great job at thoroughly acquainting one to the home and community. She went above and beyond in walking us to the MetroLink stop and showing us how to purchase tickets. She also made full breakfasts for us both mornings -- delicious and filling--with ample amounts of coffee! She provided us with all of the necessary details to make our trip to St. Louis a memorable one, without worry.

Our first airbnb stay was excellent. Dara made us feel welcome and relaxed as soon as we walked through the door. She has an obvious passion for the city and knowledge to share. We were even treated to great home cooked breakfasts. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable, with the bonus of a separate sitting room to spread out into. It's an easy walk to the attractions of the Loop, and to the metro station from where it's just a quick ride into the city. Have no hesitation in recommending a stay at Dara's and we'd go back for sure if we ever visit St Louis again.

The rooms were great, bed was comfy, cat was awesome, breakfast was delicious, and Dara was friendly! This place worked out great for a place to sleep before and after walking to Forest Park for Loufest!
