Welcome to my 1200sq ft, 3 story, 100 yr old home on the edge of historic Strawberry Hill!! A safe, up & coming neighborhood centrally located in the KC Metro, close to everything with great hwy access, bars and restaurants within walking distance, and a hot tub!
I list this house 2 ways: as a 3bdrm or 4bdrm. You will have the entire house to yourselves either way you choose to book, but when you book this a the 3 bedroom, you pick 3 bedrooms to use. Using all 4 will result in extra charges.

The space
**You have rented my home as a 3 bedroom. You may choose any 3 bedrooms. Using all 4 beds will result in extra fees!**

My 100yr old home is fully furnished with a queen bed in each room.
I dont stay here when it's booked, so you probably wont see me during your stay.
The 3rd floor bedrooms are connected by a doorway with a heavy curtain.

Please note that I do work very hard to keep my 100+ yr old home clean, but I do live here so there will be imperfections. By booking my home, you are getting an entire private home with 3 bedrooms for the cost of one night at some nearby hotels. Thus speaking, you might consider booking a room in a hotel if you require a completely spotless, creaks/squeaks and blemish free environment. She's an old lady, remember to be kind.👵

My house is furnished with unique items I find interesting & beautiful, adding charm to the tough (& maybe a little rough around the edges) old girl. You have access to the entire house. And your choice of 3 out of the 4 bedrooms. Using a 4th bedroom will result in charge for use of it.(Please don't touch anything in the glassware hutch).

Things to note:
1) The house is undergoing some remodeling. I am happy to announce that in 2018, the following $20k in renovations was completed: refinishing the hardwood floors throughout the house, new kitchen appliances have been installed (fridge, dishwasher, gas range/oven, microwave), new light fixtures in kitchen and all bedrooms, ceiling tile in the kitchen, and awesome new hand hammered copper kitchen sink and granite countertops, as well as a new sectional couch and new bedding! Still more to do, but the big stuff is done!!
2) Some of the interior doors need replacing, BUT the doors that are old and crappy still close.
3) Kitchen and entry have been repainted and cabinets updated.
4) Renovations are a slow process, so currently you will be receiving a reduced price for some rough wall edges, unfinished drywall along a the living room/kitchen ceiling divider, and pre-tile work in areas where the hardwood was not able to be refinished. Work will not be done while guests are in the house, and aside from the unfinished aesthetics of a few spots, the things yet to be completed should not affect your stay! :)

I love traveling the world! Whether Im driving through the USA in my RV or sailing the seas on a catamaran, exploring new places, making new friends, petting friendly animals, and trying all the weird foods is what I love best!

During your stay

I live a block away. If you need anything, I'm always a text or phone call away. :)
You probably won't see me unless I swing to pick up an Amazon delivery.
