Hi, I'm Laura. I own a lovely home in the heart of the neighborhood of Waldo in Kansas City. The home was built in 1954 and has great character. Waldo is an extremely desirable area; it is a very safe neighborhood and has a unique blend of residential and urban living. The neighborhood has wonderful local restaurants and an exciting nightlife. It is located just south of the Brookside neighborhood, which has a farmers market on the weekends and a village area with shops and restaurants.
Since purchasing my home, I’ve been slowly improving it. The kitchen was recently remodeled and the hardwood floors have been redone. There is a great deck out back and in the summer, it’s filled with flowers. Guests are more than welcome to sit outside, turn on the twinkle lights, and enjoy the evening.
Your room has a comfortable queen sized bed, a dresser, and a desk. There are hardwood floors and two windows that provide great natural light. The private bathroom is located next to the bedroom. The bathroom is original to the home and has unique vintage tile.
Guests are able to store things in the refrigerator and freezer. No cooking is allowed but there is a microwave. Bottled water and coffee are available.
I have a fantastic deck and guests are more than welcome to utilize that space. Smoking is allowed on the deck but not inside my home.
Interaction with guests
I'm more than happy to provide information about local attractions and restaurants. I’m also gluten free and so I’m able to provide lots of great information on the many gluten free friendly restaurants in the Kansas City area.
Other things to note
I have a sweet cat named Lola and she loves to make friends with new people. She may also try to convince you to let her outside, but please tell her "no". She is a predominately indoor cat and only goes outside when I am home and can supervise her.
I work full time Monday - Friday so weekday check-ins need to be 6:00pm or later. Check-ins are very flexible on Saturday or Sunday.
