Unique Airbnb listing offers stay in rough area of St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Airbnb listing is blunt and honest, describing a "not-so-great" home in a predominantly low-income area of St. Louis surrounded by an abundance of vacant homes and abandoned buildings.
And perhaps surprisingly, the listing has generated plenty of guests.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Natalie Vowell of north St. Louis has received quite a bit of social media attention for the home she lists on Airbnb under the title: "Home is Where The Hood Is."
Vowell says she and her husband were trying to be humorous, but accurate, too.
Guests have included students, professionals and travelers attending local conferences.
