About The Owner

I lived and owned in the neighborhood for over 7 years, I had a short commute to work and enjoyed all of the benefits of a large city but still had the charm of a small suburb.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Kansas City

When I left the area for a new job I didn't want to give up the city life. I enjoy coming back dining in the same restaurants and seeing the shows and museums in the area.

What makes this house unique

When I stay at the property it is my home away from home with all the amenities I enjoy. When I stay at other places I find myself comparing my place to where I am staying...I realize my house might not be your house but a comfortable bed, clean linens, an inviting neighborhood, kids that are happy is what I strive for, I enjoy coming back to the area and settling in for a moment in time to enjoy my family and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you sincerely for all your info and quick responses in the past month. The house was perfect for our stay. I can't believe we managed to get all 3 kids to sleep in the same room. There are so many things we loved about the house: the beds were so cozy, the hardwood floor was beautiful, towels were super soft, the updating of the house was done so tastefully (esp loved the kitchen backsplash), the movie selection was fun and extensive. The house was a perfect location for us. We went to a Children's Museum in Shawnee, went to the plaza several times, went to Crowne Center and Kaleidescope and Fritz's, and Rosedale BBQ was awesome! I wanted to offer some simple suggestions to improve a couple of things for future guests. It would be nice to have a small stool in the bathroom so the kids could reach the sink easier and more independently. The step to the front porch is a bit high for kids, older folks or people with mobility issues. It might be nice to add a small step.



Thank you again and Happy Holidays!!

Not clean

  • 2 of 5

We are veteran travelers with VRBO and this is our first unpleasant overall experience.

The positives: very convenient location to Union Station and downtown. Home has been restored with beautiful floors and cabinetry. There were plenty of dishes and the bed was squishy soft (not a positive for everyone's tastes). Pet friendly property.

The negatives: the yard has a fence but there are large gaps where our dogs could have easily crawled through. There was a great deal of trash in the back yard, including beer cans, broken pottery and a diaper. The house has had a surface cleaning but the freezer, drink dispenser, fridge and top of the microwave were filthy. There was a reddish jelly substance smeared on the bathroom door, cabinet, and bedroom door. The inside of the dishwasher was caked with lime. The TV remote did not work in the living room, which meant you had to manually adjust the volume, a frustration with loud commercials. There are no lamps or side tables in the living area; only a couch and recliner with an overhead ceiling fan. The overhead light in the bedroom is finicky and works at times.

The home was rented at a more-than-reasonable rate, but our biggest complaints were the uncleanliness and yard condition. The other comments are small details. Considering the additional cleaning fee, I would have expected to find an older, restored home in immaculate condition with a safe yard for my pets. Sadly, this was not the case and we will not choose this property again.

Quaint home located in a quiet neighborhood, perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The home is located in an area which suited our plans. Rosedale BBQ and Dagwoods Diner are within walking and definately worth it. Nearby on SW 39th St, Upbeat coffee makes a delicious Horchata Latte. Many small shops, bars and restaurants along 39th which was perfect to kill time before our evening plans. We would stay here again when visiting Kansas City.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean house and well maintained. Quiet neighborhood, across from a cool old church. Cable tv, wifi, laundry machine, bbq on the back porch. Owner was professional, polite and helpful. I would definitely stay again! If you stay, try Rosedale BBQ, up the street about 3 minutes. Been around since the 1930's and was awesome!

A convenient, comfortable home in the Kansas City area

  • 5 of 5

My family (two teenagers and my husband) stayed here for 8 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. Everything about our stay was great -- the house had everything we needed and was a comfortable home base for all our activities. The neighborhood has a working class feel, but it's perfectly safe and quiet. The house itself is surprisingly spacious! Beds are very comfortable, and all the linens and blankets are very nice. Everything in the house was well-maintained and clean. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and cookware. The owner was super responsive to our questions, answering emails within hours. We did not have time to check out Rosewood BBQ, which is just up the block, but we did enjoy Elwood's Diner, which is a short walk away--inexpensive and delicious diner food! We would definitely stay here again--thanks for a great stay!

Sweet and comfortable

This is our second time staying here for our women's retreat. It's super convenient. The table is perfect for eating and for playing cards. The beds are comfortable. We'll stay again.
