This is our 100+ year old shotgun bungalow located in the historic and vibrant Volker neighborhood. We called this home for better than 10 years. During that time, we completely renovated it, while keeping the historic charm. Two kids later..... we're now offering it to you.
You get the place all to yourself. No noise annoyances above, or below. Just a nice, quiet, and peaceful home to call your own.
The home has one bedroom with a Queen size bed, as well as a sleeper couch in the front room/library. Ideal for 2. Happy to accept up to 4.
The home has all the amenities of a fully functioning place. Including Wifi, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Pandora, (no cable). A full size washer and dryer. A library of books and movies. A bicycle, helmet, and lock. Even a sewing machine.

There's no shortage of things to do nearby, many within walking distance.

This is hands down one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed in. That’s really all I need to say. You can’t beat the location in Westport. The house is amazing. This is the best value in KCMO.

This place is awesome! Not only is it wonderfully cozy, it is the middle of everything, just a quick drive to a ton of KC points of interest. You can also walk to a nice row of bars and restaurants. We will definitely stay here during our next trip.

Julian's house was a very cute place to stay. It was much better to be able to stay there than in a hotel. It has a great location in the midst of Kansas City with excellent access to food and entertainment.

We return to Julian's house, this time amidst a national heat wave. The new driveway is a big plus! The rest of the house is unchanged and that is a good thing. The house is quiet, pleasantly decorated, and I should have looked at the mattress because I want one like it. The…

I'm a native Kansas Citian, and have lived on this block for over 25 years. I love the eclectic lifestyle that midtown Kansas City has to offer. I'm a residential rehabber, industrial artisan, and idiot savant. A fancy way of saying, I can fix almost anything.
