Carol was a fantastic host. She was super helpful in suggesting places to visit, the bed was incredibly comfy, and my friend and I enjoyed chatting over coffee and bagels. New shower was divine as well. Definitely see if Carol is available for your next stay in KC!
Carol was the ultimate host. She has a beautiful clean home in a great location. She made sure all my inquires and needs were met. She went beyond expectations and treated me like a family member. She is a great person and great conversationalist. I'd recommend anyone to stay with Carol when in KC
I really loved the time that I spent at Carol's. The space was clean and cozy and she was always so kind and generous. She was able to put up with me practicing my violin (thank you!) and would even put a pitcher of water on the nightstand for when I got back late. Truly a perfect host! I plan on staying with Carol again if I ever go back to KC.
My stay with Carol was lovely. She was very nice and welcoming, and gave me directions and recommendations on where to have dinner. My room was very comfortable and clean. A very pleasant experience indeed! If you're traveling through Kansas City. I highly recommend staying with Carol!
What a treat we had staying with Carol. She is highly hospitable, her house is lovely and she knows how to both engage and stay out of peoples' way when they need their own space. We look forward to a re-visit next time we are in Kansas City. Highly recommended.
Carol was such a sweet lady! We loved staying here with her! Carol was considerate and friendly - she even packed us a little snack for the last part of our road trip when we left! Her place is cozy and clean and has great walkability! We also loved petting Biddy and Snickers!
The room we stayed in at Carol's was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. She is a kind person, let us use her kitchen, coffee, and made us feel free to come and go as we pleased. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant.
