We visited with a group of 5 and felt very comfortable. Caitlin did a wonderful job providing everything needed and leaving lots of information that we needed. Her house is located in a convenient 10 min driving distance from nearly every attraction. Sam the Cat is also a wonderful companion!

We stayed here as a group of 6, plus the cat(Sam, who we all enjoyed the company of). Everything in the city that we hoped to visit was easily in walking or driving distance. The home itself was amazing, with the perfect amount of space. We hope to visit again soon! As for our host, she is incredibly nice, and good about communicating, especially when you accidentally upset the security system!

Caitlin's place was located in a historically beautiful neighborhood. It was centrally located if you are looking to see both downtown attractions (like arch, old courthouse, downtown plaza, city museum, etc.) as well as if you want to see Forest Park (zoo, pavilion), Botanical Garden, Washington University, etc. House is also near Tower Grove park. Accommodations are nice and homey. I love Caitlin's place! It was perfect for our family which consisted of three adults and three kids who are all under age 12. Nice backyard and balcony in back. Kitchen was nice to cook in. There is bath upstairs with tub and show and bath in main level as well. There is a washer and dryer, but we did not use them. Thanks Caitlin!
