The space

Our house features an extremely pleasing open layout, front porch with swing and chairs, back deck with huge yard and grill, garage, 55-inch flatscreen TV with premium HD (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber TV and ample parking space. The house is equipped with a brand-new, state-of-the-art alarm system on all doors and windows. The system includes fire/smoke detectors and temperature control, all easily-accessible via the touch screen control and/or smartphone apps so that you can check-in on the house even when you're away.


Located in an extremely safe neighborhood, our house is perfect for families who want extra space, traveling professionals in need of a well-equipped office, or entrepreneurs looking to harness the power of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber and the low cost of living in Kansas City.

We work from home and have set up a great work space complete with multiple whiteboards, printer, external monitor, 3 desks, tons of office supplies, lots of light, extra storage space and filing cabinets. Best of all extremely fast (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber, with wifi and ethernet access.

We have multiple ethernet jacks along with super fast wifi accessing (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber. On average, we get upload & download speeds of 750-850 Mbps with ethernet and around 100-200 Mbps using the wifi access throughout the house.

Our Kitchen is fully stocked and guests are welcome to use pots/pans, spices, teas, sauces, and other goodies.

Other notes about the house:

Brand new washer and dryer.

Moderately-sized DVD and Book collection for guest use

Only one side of the house has neighbors and the large yard makes for extra privacy

We're very familiar with what Kansas City has to offer and are more than happy to make recommendations on places to eat, things to see, etc.

Bedrooms: Please note that while the house is 3 bedrooms we have converted one into the office mentioned above. If you require a third bed/bedroom we will set up our super comfy air mattress with fresh linens in the office.

Interaction with guests

We are able to accommodate most requests and pride ourselves on being extremely communicative and responsive to guests' needs and concerns.

99% of our bookings have been positive but there are a few things that can get things off to a bad start.
With this in mind, a few gentle reminders:

Please read our booking rules and full description before booking. We are careful to provide an accurate description of what we and our house offers.

Please be accurate on your number of guests and include all guests (except those under 2) in your final count. Getting our house ready and cleaning afterwards takes a lot of time and effort, which were happy to do as long as we have an accurate booking.

We have a limit on number of guests for a reason-we love our house and don't want to put too much wear and tear on it.

We are generally happy to accommodate guests new to Airbnb. However, guests with multiple good reviews or even one stellar review we can generally be more flexible with as they have a proven track record. Our bad experiences have always come from guests without reviews-we don't want to deny you booking if you're new to Airbnb but we do ask for more information up front so we can be sure everyone is happy.

At any point during your visit we reserve the right to stop by to check on the house. Unless something seems seriously amiss, we will never do this when you are away and will call or text first to let you know we are coming. To date we have yet to feel the need to stop by unannounced. We respect your privacy and is not something we take lightly so in general you can rest assured this won't happen. That being said, we do on occasion needed to grab something from the house, such as mail, or the garage where our truck is parked. This happens more on longer stays and not generally when people are only in town for the weekend. We will always call first and will never just show up or go in the house when you are gone (unless you give us your blessing to do so and we can't figure out another option-this also hasn't happened yet).

With all these rules it could appear that we are super anal while actually the opposite is true and which is why sometimes our hospitality has been taken advantage of. In general we are veryyy easy-going people but due to a few bad apples we have had to tighten up our policies a bit. We've found that as long as the expectations and communication of both parties are clear up front, problems rarely arise.

We expect our guests just to be clean and respectful to the space. We love our home and we think you will too!

On this listing, we require that children are listed in the guest count for your booking.

We do not allow events of any size or guests this are not included in the booking. Sometimes we can allow flexibility but only with prior approval. You're always welcome to message us to see if we can accommodate special requests.

Our biggest rule-absolutely no smoking indoors. You can smoke on either porch but do pick up your cigarette butts and throw them away. There are many dry leaves around the house so this is essential.

We loved our stay at Tiffani And Colby's listing. Tiffani was very warm and accommodating and the listing was accurate. We enjoyed lots of local restaurants in the Waldo and Brookside area, and it is a great location for exploring other parts of Kansas City. A special bonus is the adjacent Trolley Track Trail for walking/running. Thanks!

Tiffani and Colby's home was very welcoming and and well decorated for the holidays. My family loved staying there and we would stay there again! Just a few minor things with some light bulbs out and the sink and dishwasher clogging up. Despite that I would still recommend staying there to others.

Thanks Heidi for staying with us. I got an emergency plumber to come that day and all is good now with the dishwasher. Changed the light bulbs too :) We are so happy you had a great time!

My son and arrived to a beautiful clean home. Tiffani was quite accommodating throughout our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) internet was tops. Everything felt like it was our home away from home.

We had a wonderful stay at Tiffani and Colby's house. They left us notes in anticipation of any questions and we might have as well as offering suggestions for walking and/or dining. They also made sure we had contact information in case anything else came up They were great hosts and the open layout of the house offered a wonderful place for Thanksgiving dinner and several games after dinner. We all enjoyed the fast internet and some especially appreciated watching several football games on the large screen TV. Our only regret is that it was too cold to grill and sit outside on the deck. This is a great place to stay if you are in Kansas City.

Nice, intimate house setting in a tree-lined neighborhood. The access to internet and television viewing was simple, as mentioned in the listing. Tiffani was very proactive and responsive in messages and that was appreciated as it's not always the case with other hosts. Tiffani and Colby included plenty of great insight on the area, restaurants to consider and good information on areas in and around Kansas City to visit and that was great to have.

We had an excellent stay at Tiffani/Colby's! My son and I were in town to visit my sister and her new baby. This house is so spacious--perfect for my toddler! He could entertain himself exploring for so long. Tiffani was really easy to communicate with and was so welcoming. The house was very clean and we found everything we needed, especially in the kitchen. Great big TV was a plus since it was World Series time:) I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. Also, the neighborhood is really lovely--tree lined streets, quiet, and right by a great bike path!

Mollie thanks again! Glad you enjoyed the house and thanks for the note on the whiteboard! So cool!

Tiffani was great. Very communicative, sent a list of restaurants and things to do. Left a note and welcome gift. Very easy, very professional. There with my wife and two year old. House was decorated outside for Halloween and my daughter wants to return to the pumpkin house. Enjoyed running on the Trail Track, great new Bier House nearby and two coffeeshops we enjoyed (Coffee Girls and Red-Headed Philosopher). We were very comfortable.

Hello, bonjour, hola, and namaste!

My name is Colby and I'm a social entrepreneur, former Peace Corps Volunteer, impact investor, and Airbnb nerd. I create impactful businesses and help others launch their own. Airbnb has been nothing short of life-changing for me, starting with my first booking in my tiny apartment in Washington, DC over 4 years ago. Since then, both Airbnb and the sharing economy have made leaps and bounds and are literally changing the world.

As a host, I care about my guests and I try to create a unique experience, not just a place to crash at night. I LOVE hosting people who are explorers, adventurers, deep thinkers, travel junkies, and entrepreneurs. But I have hosted hundreds of guests from literally all walks and from all over the world, from Egypt to Pakistan to Costa Rica and rarely had a negative experience. When it comes down to it I often feel that I have gotten more from my guests than they have from me.

So whether you're a backpacker that is touring the world or a tech guru launching your startup, I would love to host you at one of my Airbnb's.

Take care,

Colby
