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.
Make yourself entirely at home. :)
Don't hesitate to call - anytime for anything.
Matthew's apartment was perfect--clean, comfortable, conveniently located, and well stocked with the essentials (towels, soap, pillows, etc.) A large well tuned piano was an added bonus. Highly recommend as a place to stay if you're in town.
The apt. was great; spacious, clean, Great location! Matthew was flexible, friendly, and available. We will rent again on our next trip to KC; we want to spend more time at the Plaza & museums, all a quick walk from Matthew's charming apt.
THIS is the AirBnB experience you really want to have.
We were greeted immediately after checking in and given a tour. The communication is AMAZING, the instructions are clear, the house is immaculate, the wifi works, the bed is sooooooo comfy, Matt answers every question immediately and bends over backward to make your stay perfect.
Thanks Matt and Brad.
Fantastic apartment in a great neighborhood - short walk to restaurants, cafés, BBQ and good coffee. Matthew was very easy to communicate with and made our stay very easy. Couldn't ask for anything more!
We walked into the apartment and the place was as clean as possible and very cool, which was so refreshing on these hot summer days! The key pick up and drop off was so smooth and effortless. A circuit tripped in the bedroom and Matthew responded within minutes! Couldn't speak highly enough of this listing. Just a block away from the Plaza with tons of really nice shops! Also walking distance from a great breakfast place - Classic Cup. When we are in the area again we will definitely be contacting Matthew!
This was a nice apartment in a good location. All the necessary amenities, nice art, has a bohemian feel.
Amazing space! Clean, artistic, romantic, and perfect location!
Matthew is accommodating, flexible, and all around a great host!

About the Host, Matthew
The only classes I went to in high school were Jazz band, music theory, and chess club. If I had graduated I would have been 2nd from the bottom of my class. Something about being told to be somewhere at 7:40 (AM) everyday seemed so ridiculous. College was cool though - I have a B.A. in Political Science.
I started a company called PicPhix (sounds like Pic Fix). We created a fb/iPhone app that makes it impossible to take a bad picture. How you ask?
See if you can figure it out. ;)

Put that project on hold and we're now in development on an app to solve a very big problem for Airbnb and make Airbnb hosts lot more money. :) If you're an Airbnb host, ping me to be one of the first to know when we open for testing. This app will make your life so much easier.
Wr raised money to start start a photo editing company but became airbnb enthusiasts accidentally. We saw a very big opportunity to solve a very big problem for the airbnb community. We use whatever excess cash we make from our bookings to cover development costs.
In terms of guests - don't really care too much. Special preference to artists, musicians, or entrepreneurs. The more verified you are the better - have something about yourself in your profile - connect it to some of your social networks. Just nice to know that people staying at your place are connected and have a story. ...and if you think you can drink at a steady enough pace, you're welcome to join us for dinner or drinks (where ever we happen to be).
