This space is a great spot for travelers coming from near and far! The private guest house sits on our 1.5 acre organic urban farm only 10 minute drive from Downtown KCMO, Westport, and the Plaza, and 5 minutes from KU Medical Center. Family friendly always and pet friendly on a cad-by-case basis!
We love our little urban oasis. Though we are only minutes from downtown, we have a gravel drive, a huge garden plot, space for chickens, and a large yard for our children to play. Our property is set back from the road and surrounded by trees, including an incredible Oak in front of the guest house. Our guests have described the place as "comfortable, simple, clean, and homey" with "all of the amenities you could need." The house has central heat and air, good water heat and pressure, comfortable beds, and a kitchen stocked with all the basics. There is no TV, but we have free high-speed internet that can be easily used to stream TV and movies online. The bathroom is small and features a shower only - no bathtub. We do have a baby / toddler tub at the house for families with little ones. To be clear: This is not a fancy place and, for this reason, we have listed the unit at a very reasonable price and do not charge any additional fees (cleaning, service, etc). If you are looking for a sleek, stylish, hip place, or a hotel experience . . . this is not for you. But if you are looking for an affordable, comfortable, family-friendly home on a unique property, we are likely a great match!
Guests have access to the entire house including full kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and dinning / family room. Upon request, guests are also welcome to wander around the property, check out the garden, and visits our chickens. We have items available for families to use including a travel crib, toddler mattress, baby bathtub, and some toys and books.
We only hosts guests when we are in town. We are available by text throughout your stay to respond to questions and concerns, offer suggestions, etc. And we are right next door if our guests need to meet with us.
Unfortunately, our space is not wheelchair accessible. Also, due to our gravel driveway and rustic landscape, guests with limited mobility should contact us before booking to ensure that we will be able to accommodate your needs.
We ask all of our guests to respect the house, clean-up after themselves and follow these basic house rules:
-No illegal drugs
-Use trash, recycling and compost bins provided
-Turn off/down heat or air when you are out of the house.
-Lock doors when you leave
-Ask before having guests over - smaller gatherings are fine, but no large parties
-Ask before visiting the rest of the property (play yard, garden,etc)
- Parents must supervise kiddos at all times.
- Dogs considered on a case-by-case basis - no fenced in yard at guesthouse.
Your Host Couple is a made up of one west coast transplant (SF Bay Area) and one Kansas City native that have settled down in the area to enjoy a slower pace of life and the changing of the seasons. We both work in the non-profit sector and use our extra time to enjoy our serene urban farm, which is a work in progress. Our guest house is ocassionally used by friends and family throughout the year, but is otherwise available to you. We do consider ourselves hosts, and although this is not a full service "B&B", we offer friendly hospitality and try to be as available as possible for our guests to offer advice, suggestions, and accommodate any requests for extra resources. We understand the difficulty of traveling with kiddos and pets, so we have designed the space to be pet and child friendly to the extent possible. We welcome individual guests and families from all backgrounds and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability . Unfortunately we have not been able to renovate to make our space ADA accessible - if you have specific questions about the space or possible accommodation, please contact us.
