We are both seasoned travelers taking the opportunity to use vacation rentals over hotels. We discovered that this was the way to go wherever possible. We both own and manage real estate in the St Louis area and decided to offer vacation rentals to other travelers. -Mario and Rod
Mario Choy purchased this apartment in 1995
This property is family owned and making use of one of the units was a great idea. It is easy to get to and offers the right amount of space you would need to plan your stay in St Louis.
One block south you'll find a small district of restaurants. Just north you'll have Turtle Park famous for it's stone sculptors by local artist Robert Cassilly. Beyond that you can walk over to St Louis' famous Forest Park and head right in to the Zoo for free!
My daughter and I traveled to St. Louis as her last mini vacation prior to entering the work force. We had a great time in St. Louis enjoying the Science Museum, the zoo, attending Shakespeare in the Park and taking in the sites and sounds of the city. Mario's apartment was the perfect location to easily get to all of the sites we went to. The zoo is a short walk over HWY 64/40. We felt perfectly safe in the neighborhood. I enjoyed the quaint feeling of the order building. We enjoyed lazy mornings and a couple quiet evenings indoors.
The recommendation I would suggest is on the cleanliness of the apartment. The surface cleanliness was fine, but while lying on the floor there were many dust bunnies and a water bottle under a dresser. The bathroom floor was also dirty.
I would like to travel to St. Louis with my husband and I would stay at this location again.
Thank you Mario!
Overall the apartment was very nice. Location was good access to everything a lot of places walking distance really enjoyed the stay in St Louis
The apartment was very clean. Would stay again
We had a great stay. I was nervous about the cleanliness reviews that popped up after I had booked. It is an old building, we find them charming. The unit was immaculate. We had an issue getting online, and the owner was over within 10 minutes and fixed it. The A/C works great, nice TVs with Netflix and Amazon. The unit is right across the street from the turtle park, the zoo and a great pub. Parking was super easy, even during Fair St. Louis. There are a bunch of local restaurants and a brewery within walking distance. Highly recommend and would stay again!
Flat location is superb! Clean and cozy atmosphere.
We rented this property over the memorial day weekend. Upon arrival we also had trouble with the lockbox. Once I could figure out how to reach the owners, they responded immediately with help which I was very thankful for. Since our 5 year old was on her last leg from all the travel and standing in front the door trying the get in for a good 20 minutes, the first thing I went to do was turn on some cartoons for her. The TV also wasn't working properly...so again had to call the owner. Once again they were very responsive and ended up even coming over personally to fix the tv. When first entering the apartment it is visually appealing. Nice decor, furniture etc. but it doesn't take long to notice that YIKES...the place is not very clean! I noticed several reviews before renting that the apartment needed cleaning. All floors were very dirty and could tell the kitchen counters needed cleaning. I found an electric mop and broom in the closet and went to town. I wish I could have attached pictures to show how much I swept up. Nice little pile of hair and dirt. YUCK! The electric mop doesn't work that well but it was all we had so tried my best. There was no wash cloth in the kitchen so used several paper towels and the dish soap to clean the counter. The paper towels were dirty after wiping down the counter. I would suggest if you plan to stay here you plan on cleaning yourself....doesn't seem as if they are willing to change how this apartment is cleaned. We needed to use the washer and dryer at one point. Looked through the binder the owners left but found no directions on WHERE the laundry was located. Once again got ahold of the owners and they directed us to the location. Again..great response...just stinks that we had to contact them so many times . I would HIGHLY suggest not even attempting to wash clothes. The location of the laundry mat is straight out of a horror movie. Very dark, lights don't work, in a basement full of various junk items. It is creepy. We were desperate so washed the clothes. Afterwards, put money in the dryer and it wasn't working so were left with wet clothes. On the positive side, location is amazing. Park across street and pub is very family friendly. This place is close to everything. We won't stay again though as the uncleanliness far outweighs the positive.
During our short stay we got the chance to walk to the park and maximize its use and all the free amenities. The apartment worked well for us and allowed us to save a few meals by cooking. It had all the essentials that we needed. The apartment was clean and the beds were comfy. It looked like they changed some of the furniture in the living room including that warped picture that some other reviewer mentioned. Drats, we would loved to see something warped, lol. Thanks for allowing us to stay. Will do it again.
