The Southwest Gardens Apartment is a large one-bedroom, one-bathroom home with a bonus room located just one-block west from the Missouri Botanical Gardens, three-blocks north of the historic Tower Grove Park and less than a mile from the Hill neighborhood. This apartment comes with everything you would need for daily life and comfort. I have laundry machines located in the basement, WiFi, a desktop computer and a fenced back yard for your enjoyment. This apartment can sleep up to four guests: one king-sized bed with a memory foam mattress, one twin-sized daybed accompanied by a twin trundle-bed and linens for all. The building is located in the heart of the city, making it a perfect location for getting out and about in St. Louis.
