*NO refunds for not reading full description and showing up expecting a full size apartment with stove/oven/full kitchen*

This is the private, REAR, 2ND FLOOR “Starboard" unit of our historic St. Louis house.
***It is 1 large bdrm with fridge/microwave, full bath with walk in shower, approx 200 sq ft. total space.

This is a REAR, 2nd FLOOR unit that is private and self contained, with keypad entrance, approximately 250 square feet. It is a large bedroom with a full bathroom (tub/shower), kitchenette (fridge/microwave). **Please do not expect a full kitchen and a multi-room unit (see photos which accurately depict this space)**. This is NOT the 1st floor apartment. This space is suited more for short term stays, but longer terms stays also welcome. It's the perfect size for 2 people who need a place to sleep or kick back between activities in the city.

The house was built circa 1865 and was on the verge of demolition when we acquired it in 2019. We have restored it with an all new interior while keeping its exterior charm.

It’s the perfect place to stay for a night (or 7!) in the city. We’re close to so many popular and cool places, most just a $7 Uber ride away!

The unit has a smart tv with access to all the streaming services (with your subscription). High speed WiFi is available for all your social media surfing needs (or your work, if you’re here on business).

Bed is a comfy, premium memory foam queen sized mattress that sleeps 2. There is a ceiling fan and a heater/air conditioner that you can adjust to your needs.

The room includes a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker (including coffee, tea, creamer, sugar).

There is a full bathroom with a tub/shower and plenty of plush towels for your bathing pleasure, as well as shampoo, conditioner, and soap (hey, you never know if you might forget something). There is also a closet for you to store your things.

The windows let in tons of natural light, and there are room darkening curtains for when you want to keep the light out. The place is really light and airy and a great spot to kick back and relax whether you’re there for business or pleasure.

Parking is on a one way street, which is quiet, and the neighbors are delightful. Rear parking is reserved for 1st floor guests, but may be available on occasion (host will let you know).

Access to the unit is via a private, rear keypad entry. Guests have access to a large deck and gas fire pit which is shared with the unit next door.

We have plenty of security lighting, including motion lights and dusk to dawn lights for our guests’ safety.

Getting around

The house is walking distance to a lot of cool places, and a $7-10 Uber ride to most other places. St. Louis has an embarrassingly awful public transit system, FYI. There are a few nearby bus stops, and we do have a Metro Link train, although there isn’t a station very close by. We also have taxis, but I highly recommend Uber/Lyft, which is plentiful. We never wait more than 2-3 minutes to catch one, no matter where we are. The house is close to all major highways and thoroughfares.

My husband and I have have a passion for St. Louis City historic house restoration, and we’ve rehabbed 7 in the area so far. We strive to keep as many of the historic elements of these gorgeous homes as we can, but, often they are in such a deteriorated condition we when we get them, that there’s just not much left.

Rehabbing historic houses has turned us into St. Louis City history nerds, and we love learning more about life in the city in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. We research the history of every house we rehab and absolutely love seeing the names of past residents of 100+ years ago.

We’re super excited to share this rehab historic house with you! We hope you love your stay in it as much as we loved bringing it back to life!
