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.

Great location, clean apartment.
When we first got there we were a little concerned about the safety of our location. Only because it is an older area, and we were not familiar with St. Louis. But we had no issues and never felt unsafe at all. The place is very clean and perfect for what we needed. But make sure you can climb stairs, it is on the top floor. But it was not a problem for us.
This place is just as pictured: cozy, comfortable, clean and convenient. Great location (we were in town for an event at Tower Grove Park). Very quiet.
Simple, clean, cozy and convenient. Our 2nd time.
Nice home base for college visit
My daughter and I stayed here for two nights while she visited SLU. It was an easy commute to the college and the accommodations worked well for us. The two things I worried about: safety of the neighborhood and difficulty finding street parking were non-issues. The neighborhood felt friendly and safe and we were easily able to park on the street near the building.
Thank you for taking the time to review my property.
Great location close to attractions and restaurants. Quiet neighborhood. Nicely furnished apartment and clean also.
Thank you for taking the time to review my property.
Very clean and a nice place
Everything was clean and as described. The king size bed was the best. My wife and I slept so well over the weekend - very comfortable. Also a nice central location. The bathroom is a little too small. Overall very good.
Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you felt the bathroom is too small, I try to do my best on my listing to show the bathroom size in the pictures and floor plan provided.
