I love quiet places, fine art, family, and creating fond memories for others. I grew up in Massachusetts, I am a veteran, and I have 4 grown children. My goal is to exceed my guests expectations, and provide a comfortable, warm, and inviting, 'homeaway' from home for those who find themselves in Wichita, for work or play!!!
Candy purchased this House in 1997
Why Candy chose Wichita
This property is special to me because I raised my family in this home, and have so many of life's precious memories in this place. We still use it for family re-unions and get togethers. We have large families that do not live near us, so this house is perfect for us to hold onto, and use to be a blessing to others.
What makes this House unique
This home is spacious. it is 3100 sf of living space. Large open living rooms, and comfortable bedrooms. This home is 5 minutes from I-135 highway which runs North and South through the city. Our guests can get to the airport or most other destinations in the city in 20 minutes or less. It's perfectly located for convenience, and yet it is completely private and secluded, like having a small park in your backyard. I invite you to come enjoy the home and Wichita, both have lots to offer.

Great vacation rental. Had everything we needed!
The house is charming and set up well for families. Everything was clean and Candy thought of every detail. Loved the sparkling clean hot tub. We enjoyed the large TV room and separate living room area for those who wanted to read. Candy even had a welcome basket of snacks for us upon arrival. I would rent again!
This place is truly awesome! The photos really don't do it justice. Highly recommended!!
There are just so many ways this property and our hosts exceeded even the high expectations set by the photo gallery and description! First, our host, Candy: she was always quick with responses to the questions we had leading up to our stay, and everything she describes in the listing is accurate and in good, clean, working order. We had no issues at all during the stay.
The main home is older, well-maintained, and most of it appears to have been remodeled fairly recently. The master suite is one side of the home where two bedrooms and a hall have been turned into one large room. It can be closed off from the rest of the house for privacy, It has direct access to the kitchen. The other side of the house is as I imagine the master suite side used to be -- two bedrooms along a hall, bathroom in between. Each of the bedrooms has a comfortable chair and full dresser.
We didn't really make use of the formal areas -- the living room and dining room in the main house. Our time was mostly in the breezeway, which has been enclosed into two large tiled rooms -- the TV room and a large room that will work for a lot of purposes and group sizes.
It was too cold and snowy to make use of the large yard or the fire pit.
The only little thing I'd nitpick about is that I had to download manuals for the TV and the hot tub. I couldn't figure out a couple small things about each device. It would be handy to have a laminated guide for each with main functions like how to change to the HDMI input and what needs done to route the TV audio through the sound system (that may be dead simple, we did not actually try to do it); for the hot tub, how to troubleshoot Bluetooth audio, what to expect on the display as it powers up and prepares for use, exactly what to do when done using it (does it need to run a bit before turning off the power breakers, for example). Again, these are tiny things overall and are only mentioned as a way to improve an already STELLAR experience!
This was a great getaway place for my wife and myself....but we also discussed holding a family holiday event here sometime and believe it would have no problem handling a pretty large group! I can see it being a great place to stage an intimate outdoor wedding and reception...or a larger event if the parking lot of the adjacent business can be used for guest parking.
Don't. Miss. This. Property!
Unusual elegant home.
We were in Wichita for a conference at Friends University. A married couple and 2 single women. With three separated bedrooms, this worked ideally for us. Great kitchen - we did breakfasts and a couple of snack meals. Easy access to get to Friends University.
Overall decor was very welcoming and gracious, and owner Candy very easy to connect with. Highly recommend.
Ross, thank you for that very kind review!
Sisters bonding time
My sisters and I had a wonderful weekend stay. We played around town one day, (even hit the casino close by) then got to really enjoy the house the next day. The family room, with the big screen tv was amazing. We even got to watch our KC chiefs win while relaxing in the hot tub. The house is laid out so well. It was a great weekend. The house was perfect for us. Candy make everything so homey and relaxing. All the comforts of home and then some. Would love to rent it again.
Thank you Allison!

Whether your coming to Wichita for fun or work you will find that this city has many unique features, I will list just a few. Wichita is home to Sedgwick County Zoo, the seventh-largest zoo in the U.S. and the state’s most-visited outdoor attraction. In the heart of Wichita flows the scenic Arkansas River, a centerpiece of the city . As you follow the river's path you will encounter the Museums on the River, comprised of Botanica, 18 acres of stunning landscapes, 30 themed gardens, and a childrens garden beyond imagination, The Exploration Place museum, Mid-America All-Indian Center, Old Cowtown Museum, where you can experience Wichita like it’s 1865. Old Cowtown is a living history museum that lets you immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and activities common to a Midwestern cattle town. and finally the Wichita Art Museum. Entertainment comes in all forms in Wichita. Arenas, theatres and other event venues bring big names in music, comedy, and theatre to Wichita for kids of any age, family fun or a night for the adults to enjoy. Wichita has more than 1,000 restaurants in the city that reflect the community’s appetite for diverse international cuisine, some of the best steaks in the world. If you like tours, check out Wicked Brew Tour that gives a glimpse into Wichita's fine breweries and popular coffee shops. After a few days of dining decisions, you'll see why Livability.com called Wichita a "Top 10 Surprising Foodie City." There is so much more to this city .... but perhaps I've given enough of a glimpse to entice a trip this way....
