A one bedroom unit on the top floor of a 120-year-old Queen Anne all-brick gem in historic Compton Heights. Modern convenience in a vintage package. A queen size bed and a loveseat sleeper accommodate three adults. If you want to eat in, the kitchen is ready for you. The multi-faceted ceilings and the irregular floorplan create a fun and fanciful space. Off street parking. Steps from Tower Grove Park, South Grand shopping, and SLU Hospital. Easy access to I-64, I-55, and I-44.

The space

The neighborhood feels very safe to me. I included the photos of my neighbors' houses to show how upscale it is. I have put keypad deadbolts on both the street entry door and the door to your apartment, providing double security. There is off-street parking for four vehicles, at the back of the house, accessible by an alleyway just around the corner. Street parking is always available as well, and this is the option I usually go with.

This is a third floor space. This means stairs; 39 of them to be exact. Five to the front door, 17 to the second floor landing, and 17 more inside the unit.

Guest access

Guests have the use of the entire apartment, including a full kitchen with fridge, range, microwave, pots & pans, and cooking tools. Also a "smart" TV with wifi access to the web. I've got Netflix, and guests can access Amazon, Hulu, etc., on their own accounts if they have them.

Interaction with guests

Keypad deadbolts are in use, so no check-in is necessary. However, I live in the building and I am available in person or by telephone to answer every need and try to answer every question.

Liked the size of the apartment and quick access to the highway. There is a restaurant right across the street that also serves alcohol so that was nice.

We really loved the little touches that Bill provided! Coffee, cereal, oatmeal, waters and milk in the fridge. Also I wasn't expecting there to be shampoo/conditioner/body wash/lotion or a hair dryer but I was pleasantly surprised!

Bill's apartment was great, it really exceeded our expectations. The apartment was scrupulously clean and well adorned with furniture and decorations. The space is in the top floor of an old town home that's been well modernized with it's own central air unit, bathroom, kitchen, etc. It felt very cozy and complete. There's a charming turret that has a couple of comfy leather chairs, some small tables, and a TV with a soundbar (and a streaming box IIRC). There are also windows in this area the overlook the lovely neighborhood. The TV is a modern Samsung model and supports Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc. I also found that the soundbar, in addition to playing audio from the TV, supports playing audio directly from Bluetooth--an awesome surprise if you have lots of music on your phone like I do. I was also very pleased that the apartment has fast WiFi that Bill makes available to guests; with both 2GHz and 5GHz bands. I think Bill did a great job making us feel welcome. The fridge was stocked with high quality bottled water, the pantry stocked with cereal, shelves with little convenience oatmeal bowls you could add water to, heat and eat, etc. My friend was also absolutely delighted to find a bowl with various chocolate treats set out for us to enjoy. The rest of apartment was well stocked with everything we needed (and more): clean towels, hair dryer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, extra trash bags, paper towels, Kleenex just to name a few items. This was my first Airbnb, and I'm very glad it was such a good experience. I had to force myself to step out for the event we were traveling for since I could have easily spent the whole trip in the apartment. My friend was joking that she wanted to just move into the unit and not leave at the end of the stay. In addition to the apartment itself, Bill did an excellent job of communicating before and during the stay. He was welcoming and very approachable, answering my questions and ensuring we were satisfied with everything.
