About Mike York

I bought this historic property in 2010 and have been working to upgrade it over the years. I was born and raised in the St. Louis area and enjoy getting out and about in the city by foot, bike and car. Most of my vacations are spent in the mountains either skiing or down-hill mountain biking. I prefer using VRBO for my vacations and have used my experiences to help shape my own. Feel free to ask me for recommendations of good local eats and key attractions on your visit.

Why Mike York chose St. Louis

I bought this building because it is in a quiet, safe, and historic neighborhood. The centrality of the location allows you to drive, walk or bike easily around the city.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location. The apartment is just one-block west of the Missouri Botanical Gardens and three-blocks north of Tower Grove Park. You can walk to several restaurants, shops, parks, the Missouri Botanical Gardens, grocery stores and so much more. Some of the close by neighborhoods that you can walk or bike to include: South Grand, The Hill, Tower Grove South, Shaw, Central West End & The Grove. Also, you have easy freeway access to 64/40, 70, 55 and 44.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mike,

Just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our stay in St Louis.

Your place was just as advertised and very clean which we really felt good about.

I hope we were good tenants, Tiffney said she got to meet you.

We will definitely consider your place again when back in town and I bring the family or have an extended stay.

I will be working in Granite City off and on for a while.

Thanks again.

PS, I brought the rest of my Chicago Style Pizza home from the place you referred us to on Wyoming.

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this charming apartment that comfortably slept 4 of us. The bedroom has a very comfy king sized bed with room to move around in the room. The trundle bed was perfect for our teenage daughters. The apartment is very well appointed and comfortable. It's close to everything this great city has to offer. We were able to walk to dinner most evenings (rain prevented some evenings), to some really wonderful restaurants. The drive to most St. Louis sights is relatively quick and easy. The apartment was quiet and a great place to rest at the end of our busy days. Rent this charming place, you'll LOVE it!

Our stay couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was exactly as represented. We enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed. Many amenities were provided just like a hotel but all of the benefits of being in a home. Be prepared to parallel park on the street. We would love to stay here again when we visit St Louis. Close to many attractions and located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. The ironing board is a tabletop model but worked for us.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described. It worked perfectly for our family of four. Easy to get to all of the local attractions and we were always able to find street parking. Mike was super helpful with resetting the wifi for us as well. We're already planning another trip back and would definitely stay here again!!

Quiet convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in this affordable 2nd story apartment. It was cool and quiet in the lovely, green neighborhood next to the Botanical Gardens. Tower Grove Park and many great restaurants on Grand were close by as was access to the rest of the city via the freeway.

Cute Place!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The pictures are right on point. It's an older building, but it is kept clean and up-to-date. We had a couple of interactions with Mike. He was a very friendly guy. We had one issue with connecting to Wi-Fi and called him at 9:30 PM and he immediately checked into the issue and we were up in running shortly thereafter. It's in a really nice neighborhood and we tried one of Mike's recommendations for dinner. It was yummy! Parking was sometimes a pain, but there was nothing Mike could do about that. We would recommend staying here.
