Interaction with guests:

This is a DIY type lodging. We provide basic amenities, and simple foodstuffs if you choose to prepare it. Jamie and I do not live at Apartment Gallery, but we are usually in our studio on the first floor (Starlight Lab). You have the entire apartment and backyard to yourselves, though other guests and their pets may be using the backyard, as well. While we are nearby, our role is for ensuring your comfort and convenience in the background while you enjoy stay in The Van Gogh Suite and in St. Louis. We’d love to meet you and/or chat, but we understand you have a travel and adventure schedule. Just text us for anything and we’re almost always nearby. Feel free to knock on our door at Starlight Lab if you want to say hi, too!

 

This is a 4 family apartment building in which the Van Gogh Suite is one of three units: the others being The Basquiat Suite, and The Eames Suite (see our other listings for details). The fourth apartment is our art studio (Starlight Lab), so we are usually around. Please be respectful and pick up and dispose of your own pets’ waste, and be mindful if your pet does not get along with others.

 

You may come and go as you please. Just make sure to lock the door. We’d be happy to help you with anything if you need assistance. Just text us!

Other things to note:

Be aware that, this is true city living. NEVER leave valuables in your car, or visible. Be street savvy. This is no different than most metropolitan cities and burgs, so keep your eyes open and make sure your belongings are always safe and secured. We have a 24 hour remote security system on site (on all entrances, backyard, and parking area in front), so there is some reasonable monitoring for your safety. Don’t hesitate to call us at any time if you need anything! We’re almost always nearby to assist.

 

The folks at Yaquis on the corner of Iowa and Cherokee are happy to watch you walk home if you felt inclined to request it. Just ask Rich, the owner – he is usually hanging out in front of Yaquis, or the bouncer at the door. They’re all good people, and are always ready to help folks feel safe.
