The front door opens to 46th street. If you turn right, you'll hit the Nelson Atkins Museum. If you turn left you'll hit the Country Club Plaza (hundreds of Galleries and Restaurants), if you walk forward you'll hit the Kemper Museum of Modern Art. Each destination is within one block of your front door.

75% of our neighbors are 18-25yo students from the Kansas City Art Institute, UMKC, and Rockhurst. Remainder are post grad/professional types. Not many families on the block. Only two I can think of. The same group of guys owns most of the buildings on the block. One of them is always around - they're really nice people, always available. It's a really special block - lots of character.
Really nice apartment and Matt is very accommodating and relaxed. The place was incredibly clean and comfortable and it is very close to the Plaza which was nice. We did have some issues with parking and I would recommend getting a clear instruction on where to park, where not to park, etc. Great time!
Matthew is great - it has been so smooth and easy to modify the reservation times as my relocation needs and dates have shifted slightly! He is also quite a host and and social and knows the area very well!
Matthew was a splendid host who's accommodations were stellar. The apartment is fantastically located just blocks from The Plaza and Matthew has managed to create a beautiful environment that rivals Brooklyn Chic! A wonderful host and wonderful place!
The place was clean and nice with a great location near the Plaza. Matt was a good host and made sure checking in and out were incredibly easy. I'd recommend it to anybody looking for a place in KC.
Matthew was always so quick to reply and was so helpful. The place was really clean, cool and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Matt is always gracious and accommodating - even when I was delayed arriving KC. The older building is quirky, but Matt's space is scrupulously clean and exceedingly comfortable. He knows a wide swath of folks and enjoyed hanging with him & his friends on my night off! Best way to know a city is through it's people! Thanks for another great stay!
Matt operates on the principle of helping any way he can, as a very pleasant, intelligent, good listener. The apartment is clean, basic, with a comfortable bed, and fantastically located for the price. We didn't use the two TVs with Netflix, but others surely would. Highly recommended for those who like simplicity and who are on a budget. The main problem is that the old wood floors creak (but it's not above anyone). Short walking distance to the Plaza and the Nelson-Atkins (spectacular -- we had half an hour with the Kwan Yin statue in its restored temple room, all to ourselves). And, again, Matt is great.
Matt is a great host! I loved that he quickly responded (within a minute) to any text or email I sent him. The apartment building is on the older side, so it can be a little drafty during the winter months, but Matt has a nice heated blanket on the bed to keep you warm and toasty at night. The apartment is walking distance to the Plaza and there is plenty of street parking available. We had a great stay during our time in KC. This will definitely be a repeat! Thanks Matt!
Really is an awesome location in KC. Easy to get to UMKC and just a stones throw away form the nightlife in Westport. While I didn't have a chance to meet Matt in person, he was very accessible via phone/text and was able to answer questions quickly. The breakfast provided was awesome and the coffee was some of the best I've had in a long time! Definitely would return here again if I'm in the area again.
Great place! Easy access to all the spots and everything avail. And ready! Would stay again.
