Guest review: “We loved our time here. The check in process was incredibly easy, and we felt very secure in the building. The area around had a great vibe and we were able to leave the car parked and walk everywhere we wanted to go, the City Museum, Culinaria and to Kaldi’s coffee shop near the arch. The bed was so comfortable, one of the best nights sleep on our trip across the USA. Utilities were great in the kitchen, we didn’t get a chance to use anything but wouldn’t have had a problem cooking at home had we chosen to. The apartment is also beautifully styled, that couch is very comfortable and there’s plenty of reading material scattered about for you. We absolutely recommend staying here. Thank you!” – Alison

Review: “With a limited amount of Airbnb experiences in the St. Louis area, David’s Haunted History Walk is a true gem! I would highly recommend anyone make time from for this, regardless if visiting town or a local, this is worth the experience. The brewery you begin at has wonderful drinks and hearty food. The walk doesn’t put you into a state of fright, but rather into amazement and wonder. Not only do you hear about several tragic and spooky events taking place on the grounds you are on, but there is also a perfect amount of humor and fascinating history sprinkled in. David is a true showman of a rare degree that is a pleasure to see in action!” – David
