READ THOROUGHLY! Lots of info in this listing + mapping details.

The space
****** MAP OUR LOCATION ****** We receive several inquiries about our distance from the KC airport, Convention Center, etc. If you would like to map our location, you can use the ******Andy's Frozen Custard on Westport Road****** It's our neighbor, and will give you an accurate understanding of our location in Kansas City. *********

Free curbside parking is available on the public street right in front of the house. The room has nice pillows & bedding, a memory foam topper and a TV equipped with an Amazon firestick.

We do not allow smoking inside the house, but there is an ashtray on the porch and in the backyard, where you are more than welcome to hang and chill!

We're in a very walkable location!
APPROXIMATE GOOGLE-MAPPED WALK TIMES:
- Across the street from Andy's Frozen Custard for all those late-night dessert cravings
- 5 minutes to Filling Station Coffee
- 7 minutes to Cupini's (charming little Italian eatery)
- 15 minutes to the heart of Westport (shops & restaurants)
- 15 minutes to Volker shops & restaurants
- 20 minutes to St. Luke's Plaza
- 20 minutes to Country Club Plaza (shops & restaurants)
- 20 minutes to KU Med
- 30 minutes to Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art & Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Crossroads/Downtown/Brookside/River Market are all a 5-10 minute Uber/Lyft ride away. Kansas City also has bikes and scooters for rent, as well as a fancy (and free) streetcar.

Guest access
Your room is yours. There is a bathroom in the hallway that is shared with one other person (Elliot).

Kitchen is shared with host and microwave, coffee machine, toaster, fridge, etc. are all available. We do ask that if guests would like to use the oven/stove, they inquire with us first (just in case we're planning on cooking during that time).

You're welcome to eat in your room, at our dining table or outside on our porch or backyard.

Please note that the living room (not pictured) is not open to guests due to COVID-19 safety measures. That's where we hang out with our pets. #socialdistancing

Other things to note
COVID-19 POLICIES
- No hand-shaking please! (A polite wave works just fine :) )
- Please wash or sanitize your hands before loving on our pets :)
- Maintain 6 feet social distance with us please!
** We follow Airbnb & CDC guidelines and ask that you do too! **

We welcome all races, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations and genders. The bedroom is located on the second floor and is unfortunately not handicap accessible.

Keep in mind the house is over a century old and the stairs leading to the second floor do creak. Also, sometimes squirrels have parties on our rooftop. If you are a light sleeper, please be aware of this.

We have two dogs and two cats! While we keep the animals out of the guest room, if you have dog/cat allergies or just don't like animals, our place probably isn't for you. We sweep and vacuum pet hair DAILY, but like any house with pets, we will never get it all. If you think you will be bothered by this, please do not book with us.

We have keyless entry via a keypad on the door. We also have a lockbox with a spare set of keys in the event of a malfunction. Additionally, we have a Ring doorbell/security camera installed, so you can simply press the button and reach us at any time in case of an emergency.

Please do not bring additional guests into the house or have overnight visitors. (We're close to lots of great bars. We hope you meet someone awesome! Just don't bring them to our home, OK? This isn't a hotel.)

If you have specific questions or concerns, please reach out!

Location

Kansas City, Missouri, United States

The house is in a friendly residential neighborhood, but there is nearby traffic – we’re definitely not suburb-quiet, so you might hear the odd siren at night.

Natalie and Elliot love hosting! Elliot works at a creative design firm in downtown Kansas City and Natalie works in health care technology and does freelance food and drink writing for some local publications. We love our animals and we've got this big house with extra space -- and we love Kansas City, so we figured we'd help other people love it, too. We’re basically the best people you could ask about where to go for coffee, tacos, beer, wine, cocktails, pizza, dim sum, brunch, barbecue, speakeasies, seafood (that’s right), happy hours, late-night eats, live music, shopping, yoga studios, fine dining and more. Elliot's bedroom is on the third floor; Natalie's bedroom is on the second.

During your stay
Details to keyless door lock will be provided once room is booked. Two owners: Elliot lives on the top third floor and uses the shared bathroom; Natalie lives on the second floor in the master bedroom.

We have FOUR animals in the house (it's a big house, we're not weird). Pearl is a 9-year-old lab who just wants to love you. Meryl is a 2-year-old chihuahua-Frenchie mix who will bark when you enter the house, but he wants to play! Frida Katlo is a tabby kitten and she is very friendly! And Lil Mama is a shy black cat who refuses to come out of Natalie's room, so you'll never see her.

We do not allow animals in the guest bedrooms and encourage you to keep your door closed so they don't bother you. However, the animals freely roam the rest of the house, and despite our very best efforts and constant sweeping/vacuuming, you WILL find evidence of DOG HAIR in corners. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK WITH US IF YOU ARE NOT COOL WITH PETS AND PET HAIR.

Elliot & I are in our early 30s. We both have flexible jobs and may be in and out of the house throughout the day. When we're home, we're usually hanging out in the living room and loving on our pets.

Natalie is a freelance food & drink writer for KC area publications, so we can provide solid recommendations on restaurants and more.
