Restored historic loft near everything downtown KC for your extended stay
About AJ Vanderhorst
I’m a husband, dad and writer, who loves indie music, the outdoors, and bourbon. The answer to basketball? espresso? or adventure? is Yes. I rehabbed this building over six years with the help of youtube DIY videos, so I guess I like restoration too. I've lived in downtown Kansas City for over a decade and it's been fun to watch the urban core change and grow as my family grows too. Five things I can't live without are my Kansas Jayhawks, a great crime novel, pickup basketball games, my wife and kids (I'm bending the rules here) and a new challenge. My traveling style is probably a lot like yours; I tend to hit the ground running, explore the new city, and pretend that I actually live there. Bars, restaurants and venues a little off the beaten path. As a host, my style is personable and flexible. I'm happy to meet and greet when possible, but I'm also perfectly fine giving you space to relax and explore.

OK but not what I had in mind
Place is clean and location to downtown was great. Balcony view was awesome! Our favorite spot to hang out. Building is older, floors super squeaky and loud. Owner did a good job with what he had to work with in regards to remodeling. AJ was responsive to emails/ texts. Just overall was not really what I was anticipating.
This is an excellent place to explore Crossroads and the Power and Light District. Beautiful old third floor property, walkable to BBQ, breweries, and bars!
AJ was great to work with! He made sure we had everything we needed to access the property.
Very clean and nostalgic property perfectly located for those wanting to enjoy the KC area. AJ was quick to respond to questions we had and was very accommodating to requests we made. The only negatives would be the size of the TV compared to the size of the common area and the mattress. Would have chosen 4.5 stars if available.
Great location close to restaurants and bars.
This condo was well equipped and the location was great for people who have activities to attend downtown. It's only a 12 minute walk to the convention centre and there are several good restaurants along the way.
It was great!
It was great!
Good location for exploring Crossroads District
This apartment is as advertised re walkability, minimalist décor, convenience to downtown KCMO and Crossroads Arts District with MUCH to do & see. Streetcar is a really nice amenity - runs very regularly, stops nearby, makes it easy to get from one end of the District to the other, esp if weather's not great. Apartment was reasonably quiet with windows closed (urban neighborhood - which we love and live in ourselves so 'city noise' comes with the territory) and reasonably comfortable, with nice views off both balconies. Parking in front was always available, convenient. AJ was able to accommodate our early check-in & was available/responsive via text. Bed was comfortable, HVAC good. Tiny kitchen, only the most basic utensils & cookware + fairly good walk to get to a grocery store, so not particularly condusive to cooking. That said, there are many good/interesting restaurants within walking distance and if you have a car, even better. Probably best for a couple. All in all, good place to spend 5 days reacquainting ourselves with the downtown KC area.
