A gorgeous vintage apartment with a craft kitchen/bar, two queen beds, remodeled bath and two striking outdoor spaces with amazing city views . High-speed internet, smart tv.
Ideally situated in downtown Kansas City between the historic West Side and Crossroads Arts District. Walking distance to the Convention Center, Kauffman, restaurants, music, bars, light rail line and more.
Now available for stays over 30 days! See note below and feel free to contact me with questions.
You'll be staying in a lovingly restored third-floor loft apartment with a living/dining room, full kitchen/bar, gorgeous bedrooms and newly remodeled bath. The front bedroom features a private walk-out porch near the skyline and the enormous full-size deck off the kitchen serves up truly stunning downtown views. I'm a student of the local craft cocktail scene, and the kitchen reflects that, with a bar-height counter, an array of glassware and all the tools you'll need to create a Manhattan or Mojito if the mood strikes you.
You'll have the key code to unit 3S, which takes up half the entire third floor and is otherwise known as the "Wire Rabbit." Also, not to be overlooked—the basement laundry room.
We may not meet face to face, but I'm typically close by and happy to offer tips and recommendations on the local arts and food scene, especially all things related to indie music, coffee culture, craft cocktails and beer.
Other Things to Note
This is a neighborhood with noise expectations, not a spot for parties or events. No shouting, fighting, honking horns, loud music, etc. Common sense stuff.
For stays over 30 days, there's no lodging tax applied ($$ savings). Please contact me with any questions or proposals re: longer stays, as I'm motivated to make them work.
I supply bedding, towels, an equipped kitchen, and all basic amenities as well as high speed internet, and a smart tv for you to log on to Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube Tv, etc. (no traditional cable). If you have questions about specific items, feel free ask.
You likely already know. But if not: You'll be in the heart of downtown Kansas City, which is enjoying an urban renaissance reflected in painting and music and dance and architecture, yes, but also in local breweries, bistros, cocktails and coffee. It's a fun time to be here and you'll be in the middle of it all. You'll be within walking distance to everything (slight exaggeration, but not a large one). Two blocks from the Kauffman Performing Arts Center. Dozens of galleries, bars and restaurants around the corner. A half mile from Liberty Memorial, Crown Center, Union Station. Under a mile to the Sprint Center, the College Basketball Experience, and the Power and Light District. If you're looking for a home base for your downtown Kansas City adventure, this is it.
Just So You Know...
Depending on the route you take to arrive, your first impression of my neighborhood may not be awesome (a couple guests have mentioned this)—the city has some delayed maintenance to do on a highway ramp and several sidewalks, and there are a couple ugly buildings slated for redevelopment. But have no fear! This area is highly sought after and once you arrive, you'll see why (guests mention this too)—your loft is right in the middle of KC's downtown renaissance. So no worries.
A lot of your destinations will be within walking distance if you're working or playing downtown. Light rail runs downtown, and Bike Share KC rentals are available nearby, as well as a comprehensive bus system. Uber is also popular around here. You'll have free street parking at our location, a quiet residential boulevard just around the corner from all the action.Get the full listing »
