About Rachel Donovan
I'm from the Kansas City area originally. I purchased this home in 2014 as a second home. Over the summer I've remodeled and furnished this home with the utmost care. Meanwhile I have 9 years of experience hosting a furnished apartment rental in San Francisco. I understand what guests need when they are only here for a short while, with no time to worry about little things like buying bath mats or paper towels. Rest assured, when I furnish a place, everything is there. I truly enjoy decorating and making a place feel like home. I hope this is something you'll be able to appreciate when you stay at my little house in Old Westport.

Why Rachel Donovan chose Old Westport
It's very important to me to live in a place where I can walk to places-- grocery store, parks, museums, restaurants, library, bank, cafes, etc. At this little house, I have all of that, and more. My family members and long-time friends live nearby. It's such a wonderful feeling to have purchased a place that is right where I came from and right where I want to be. I've had a lot of fun remodeling this house and setting it up with custom furniture. I hope you will enjoy it, too!
What makes this House unique
This home was built in the 1800s. When I bought it, it was a solid house in need of some cosmetic upgrades. Now that it has been renovated, the house shines with happiness and warmth! If you had seen the house 'before' and 'after' you'd be inspired by the transformation. What I love most about the house is its location, convenient to everything in Westport/Midtown/Plaza by walking, and so convenient to everything else in Kansas City by car or bus. This house is for someone who appreciates being in a walker's paradise ('walkscore' of 91), right in the middle of it all.

Five Star Experience
Rachel was an amazing host. Her house was perfectly set up with everything we needed for 5 weeks. Any questions we had were immediately answered and we were kinda sad to leave. The location was perfect to walk to any shops, grocery store and parks. Would definitely return for another visit. Thanks again Rachel for opening up your home.
Amazing home, amazing location
I've stayed at a number of homes from this website throughout the Kansas City area and this was by far one of the best. Don't miss this one!
Chad, thank you choosing our home.. We truly appreciated how easy you were to communicate with and all of the positive feedback you provided to us. Please be in touch if you need a place to stay in the future. Thank you!
Clean, cozy and bright
My husband and I spent 6 months here and loved it. The house is close to everything you need and communication with the owner was a breeze. We loved our time here and would definitely come back!
Kelsey, we enjoyed hosting you! Hope your travels continue to take you to new and exciting places.
Great area and cute home
Great home in a fabulous location! Very walkable area. If aesthetics and location are important to you, then you should definitely book this 1800s charmer!
So glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and the neighborhood. It was a pleasure to host you and your co-worker. I loved how quick you were to get connected to the Bluetooth stereo, the streaming apps on the TV, and the "smart home" features. You were probably the most tech savvy guests we've had so far! We would love to have you back again one day. Best wishes and safe travels!
Close to everything!
The house is within walking distance to all of Westport and the Plaza. The landscaping and private backyard give the home a lot of quiet privacy. The house is very functional and is equipped for anything you may need during your stay. I highly recommend this property as I enjoyed my time in the Old Westport Home.
