Beautiful, comfortable house and gracious hostess
As a family of six, this home has plenty of room to get some breathing space from each other while travelling. As you walk in the front door, a tastefully-appointed living room/dining room welcomes you. The large kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, right down to a slow-cooker and toaster oven. Farmhouse-style taps over deep double sinks with garbage disposal & a dishwasher make clean-up a snap. All the rooms except the kitchen have ceiling fans, so even in the middle of a heat wave, the air circulation boosts the central air's cooling capacity. Three roomy bedrooms upstairs have very comfortable beds. The king-sized MBR has a 3-pce ensuite bath with shampoo/conditioner/soap provided (even a blowdryer!), there are extra linens in the hall closet, and there's a second 3-pce bath upstairs. The lower level has a more formal dining area with a HUGE dining table, and the bar/den area has a walkout to the lower level of the tiered back yard. There is a third 3-pce bath downstairs with a HE washer/dryer.
Although we were too hot to cook and eat outside after long days doing touristy things outside, there is a grill and a beautiful covered dining area in the yard, complete with sunshade curtains. The decor throughout the home is an eclectic mix of modern/country. Bold colours on the walls and sleek black wood floors supstairs lend an air of cool elegance to this home.
Kathy made a point of dropping off some extra things we might need while we were there, and had even pre-stocked the fridge with some fresh grocery items so we wouldn't have to dash out right away to get groceries after a long day of travel.
Some reno work had been recently done on the house and there was a bit of a problem with the A/C during our stay but it had been due to a workman's error and was immediately addressed by the homeowner. The home is situated in a very good neighbourhood (the street traffic is a bit busy) and it is close to local grocery stores. It's a couple minutes' drive to the highway, so getting to most of the city's attractions was fast! The drive to the Zoo, Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun, & Kauffman Stadium were all between 10 and 20 minutes.
There is no telephone in the home so be sure to bring you cell phone charger. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone planning on staying in Kansas City. It was beautiful, very clean, spacious home, and the beds were very comfortable. A wonderful first-time experience using VRBO! Thank you so much, Kathy!
