Having been recently introduced to airbnb I was a little nervous about stepping out my comfort and staying with a host in a new city. Being accustomed to lodging at hotels I was going to do the same when I had to attend the AAFP national conference in Kansas city but being on a tight financial budget I was forced to look for alternate means. I decided to take a risk and chose Carol's cottage after reading the numerous positive reviews she had received from guests.
Carol was exceptional! She was accommodating to our arrival time as we were delayed on the road. She had her place set up beautifully for us. My brother and I were immediately comfortable after having driven for many hours to get to Kansas. Her place is super clean and tidy and you honestly don't ever want to consider a hotel after her place. Her home comes with many amenities so you will never be bored if you just want to relax at home. The breakfast and coffee provided makes your mornings so much easier. It sure made mine easier since I had to commute to my conference early and didn't have to worry about stopping to a Starbucks or Dunkin. She has variety too for her breakfast so you are satisfied.
I got so comfortable I was actually sad to leave. Carol is a wonderful energetic host and fun to converse with if you want to. She was extremely hospitable and accommodating.
I will recommend Carol's cottage to anyone who wants to visit Kansas city and her house is walking distance to the shopping plaza which made it convenient for us to just walk to and not worry about parking.
Thank you Carol for your amazing hospitality and I wish I could give her more than 5 stars. I will definitely recommend her beautiful home and amazing hospitality and I will be definitely coming back if I ever am around Kansas again.
Carol's cottage is so charming you will fall in love with the decor as soon as you step inside. Carol is warm and personable and you will feel right at home. She will help you with whatever you need. We really enjoyed talking with Carol and wished we could have stayed longer.
Carol is a fabulous host and her home is beautiful. The location is great and I enjoyed getting to know the neighborhood. I highly recommend Carol's place and would stay there again!
This was my first time doing a private room stay instead of renting the entire place. Carol made the experience perfect for me. The room was super clean, extra towels and linens in the closet, the bathroom was clean and fully stocked, her dog is adorable, her place is a very short drive away from everything and the neighborhood is quiet.
Carol was helpful when we had questions, and she didn't bother us at all when we wanted to just lay down and take a nap. When I travel to Kansas City again, I hope I'm able to stay at her place again. Her home and her personality are wonderful.
Carol is a very nice host. Her house is nice, and the breakfast is good; especially the homemade jam. She is very social and chatted with us over breakfast. Will definitely stay again if we are in Kansas City!
We had a wonderful stay at Carol's. The space was charming and Carol was a very gracious host.

Proud to celebrate my 3rd anniversary as an AirBNB host. Have met some of the best people in the world. Looking forward to another exciting year!
