Jordi and Lillabet are an amazing fun-loving couple (congrats on your 19th anniversary) who know how to truly make you feel right at home. Thank you for the homemade cookies in the sitting room every night and the candies left by our bedside. They've done an excellent job in restoring their Victorian home while at the same time including all the modern conveniences. We hope next time to enjoy your beautiful backyard including the swimming pool. Lillabet is a fantastic cook and baker. Her breakfasts every morning included fresh fruit, homemade breads, homemade jams/jellies, egg/meat frittata (or, another wonderful egg/meat dish), etc. They asked about food allergies and likes/dislikes so they could prepare a breakfast to meet our needs. Jordi helped with our bags, offered us umbrellas on a rainy day, made recommendations and gave great directions. The location is perfect and has a lovely view of Tower Grove Park directly across the street. Out our back door was the Shaw Art Festival; around the corner is the world famous Missouri Botanical Gardens; in 10 minutes we were shopping at the Galleria and Brentwood Blvd; and we were less than 10 minutes to great Italian dining on The Hill. Thank you so much for opening your home to us and making us feel like family.
