About this listing
Newly renovated brick home on a tree lined residential street in beautiful Saint Louis Hills, MO. 10-15 min from everything. Only 2 blocks away from world famous Ted Drewes (recently voted best ice cream in the world: SoolNua World Ice Cream index).
If you need 2 private bedrooms during your stay with us, please increase your number of guests to "3" which will trigger the price to include both bedrooms.
This is a 3 bedroom, 3 full bathroom home. Your hosts, Sarah and Ben, live in the upstairs of the home (separate bed & bath). When we host on airbnb, we share the main level and finished basement level of our home with our guests. Gusts have access to 2 full bathrooms if needed, and one is completely private. We can accommodate up to 4 guests at a time by utilizing both of our guest bedrooms. The additional price for the 2nd private bedroom is $35 per night per guest. We are happy to host small groups traveling together, but never rent both rooms to separate parties at the same time.
***Is this the airbnb for you?***
In addition to hosting on airbnb, both hosts work demanding, full-time jobs. I urge you to remember that this is our permanent home. While we love sharing our space, we cannot significantly alter our day-to -day routines to accommodate guests. The maximum number of guests we will host is 4, so if your party has more than that, unfortunately, this is not the bnb for you.
We most enjoy hosting others who are visiting Saint Louis with a purpose. Maybe you are touring attractions with a S.O. or your family, maybe you are in town for a job interview, work-event, or wedding. We love hosting people who are coming to enjoy the city and basically need a nice, comfortable, & clean place to shower and sleep.
Disclosure: If you plan to spend most of your days roaming our home in a robe while sipping on pineapple vodkas, (yes, this actually happened), then this is likely not the best bnb for you. :-)

Neighborhood has one of the lowest crime ratings in the region. Mostly privately owned homes, but so close to EVERYTHING. Ample street parking available. Only registered guests allowed in the house.
We have two cats (Siamese and tabby mixes) named Simba and Chloe. They are very friendly, but will remain out of guest rooms if you choose to keep the door(s) closed.
Convenient keypad entry access to home, eliminates the need to carry a key around.

Other things to note
Food: You are welcome to grocery shop and store any food items in our home. Please do not eat our food or use excessive cooking supplies without asking.

No candles, incense, diffusers, essential oils, etc. One of our cats has asthma and this makes breathing very difficult for him.

Okay, now that that's out of the way -- we really genuinely hope you enjoy our home! If there is anything we can do before or during your stay to improve your experience, just let us know!
I'm Sarah, and my fiancé Ben and I starting hosting on AirBnB in late 2015. We are really excited to be a part of this great community and have really enjoyed the experience and people we have met and hosted so far. We both enjoy traveling, good food and great conversation. We are looking forward to sharing our home and city with you!
