Located in the heart of Kansas City, MO in one of the most established African American enclaves, The Citadel. Located less than one mile from 71 HWY (I-49), 5 minutes from Swope Park and Brookside, 3 minutes from Research Medical Center, 10-12 minutes from the Plaza, Westport and about 20 minutes from Downtown. You can easily catch an UBER, LYFT, public transportation with ease. Surrounded by beautiful homes and across the street from two well kept apartment complexes.

The space
My space can range from being very quiet to quite lively on the weekend. I have frequent visitors and family who stop by. Guests are welcome to use the water machine at the bottom of the stairs and the half bath but should not use the laundry room, kitchen, den, altar room or office.

Guest access
***NO KITCHEN ACCESS***
Guests may use half bath on the main floor. Guests must enter and exit through the front door.

Other things to note
Cameras are located on the exterior front door, the interior entrance and in the kitchen, a prohibited area.

You can park on the LEFT side of the driveway ONLY (up to two compact cars). Street parking (preferred) readily available and do not block the driveway or park in the apartment complex across the street.

Guests are required to return their key by leaving it in the door. Family and friends frequent the property but only guests will use the upstairs. The bathroom will be cleaned daily.

Weekends are lively, Sunday mornings are early, weekdays are later. Guests may hear music from the host but it can be modified.

Guests will be charged for ANY missing inventory which includes towels and other items.

Location

Kansas City, Missouri, United States

If you are in pairs or groups it is safe to walk but I would encourage you to stick to UBER and public transportation. The Citadel is a beautiful enclave right in the heart of the city. You are safe to walk, jog or stroll in the enclave.

I am an poet, performer, freelance writer, editor, educator and mother. I am the author of three books and currently working on three more. I live between two nearby cities. I own an art gallery, have a small arts organization and mentor many local artists. My son is in college and my daughter is in high school. My home has always been a hub for gatherings, conversations and healing. I consider myself deeply spiritual and accepting of all or no spiritual paths. I love meeting new people but can also spend the day completely alone. I love my city and community. You are welcomed with loving kindness, like each person who enters one of my homes.

During your stay
I work from home and keep artist hours (late night). I will always make myself available via text (the fastest) or by calling me. It is best to call if you need me before 11 am.
