The host I never met. The property was very run down. The picture to the left is very quaint looking. the kitchen was a mess. dishwasher needed to be filled. the front door glass pane was missing and replaced with a piece of corrogated plastic. It was not in the best neighborhood. but, whether this was a good or bad neighborhood this is definitely a safety issue. a lite breakfast was to be provided. I would have enjoyed this before running the 1/2 marathon in Kansas City. Friday of my stay I came back from dinner to find a guest and someone i didnt know smoking POT! I would like a refund and speak to someone from airbnb ASAP.
The description of the place was accurate. The house was close enough to the Irish Fest that we could walk, which we wanted. The bed was comfy, but the temperature in the house was warm. We did not get to meet the host since it was a holiday weekend.
Kevin's place was great! Very funky, a charming space, with a very comfortable bed. Kevin graciously met us and oriented us around the city, leaving great suggestions for us. It is a great base of operations for anyone looking explore Kansas City off the beaten path. We had a great time!
Kevin was a great host. I arranged this at the last minute and he was very accommodating and helpful about both checking in and checking out. The bed and pillows were really comfortable and the location of the place was very convenient for getting to the convention center.
Kevin's a warm host with a unique property in KC. Kevin provided breakfast yogurt, bars and juice and generally made an effort to make me feel welcome. Heating in the old house is a bit uneven and some of the plumbing needs work, but overall a great stay, happy to have been connected with Kevin.
Kevin was great! We drove in late from Omaha because our daughter was sick, but he was waiting for us. The house was pretty cool - clean, eclectic, and the room we stayed in on the 3rd floor was amazing. The shower was an experience in and of itself! Kevin was a great host, and Susan was awesome as well. I would definitely stay here again.
The house is big and welcoming, with quirky touches and a comfortable feel. The host, Kevin, is a delightful goofball and very friendly. He was a great resource in finding the best places to visit in KC.
We had a great visit, and made a great friend!

I'm an urban dandy and march to my own path. I always jump at a chance to go to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (free yoga in the Park on lovely Sundays!), explore the city that I love and share it with new friends. Especially the off-the beaten-path shopping, for you little boutique and vintage loving peeps out there.
Also, I love to cook and most importantly to eat! Mostly vegetarian/vegan/local, but I will try anything and love flavors of all kinds. When I have time, I like to go out dancing.
Making true connections with people and being a good host are important things to me- and I look forward to doing both with our new Air B n B buds.
Live-in host for late night/early mornings is Raphael Kroshay.
