A lovingly restored vintage apartment with fully equipped kitchen, three queen beds, newly remodeled bath and an embarrassment of outdoor space—a huge deck and two balconies with amazing views of downtown KC.
Ideally situated in downtown Kansas City between the historic West Side and Crossroads Arts District. Walking distance to the Convention Center, Kauffman, restaurants, music, bars, light rail line and lots more.
You'll be staying in a loft that takes up the entire first floor of a historic brick building. Ideal for business trips, family vacations, or friends traveling together. The enormous 1600 square foot space includes a living/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, gorgeous bedrooms and newly remodeled bath.
The open living area and front bedroom feature walk-out porches. The enormous full-size deck off the kitchen/back bedroom overlooks the Crossroads District.
You'll have the key code to unit 1, which takes up the entire first floor and is also known as the "Gold Lion." Also, not to be overlooked—the basement laundry room. (If you're staying five nights or more, request a key if needed.)
We may not meet face to face, but I'm typically close by and happy to offer tips and recommendations on the local arts and food scene, especially all things related to indie music, coffee culture, craft cocktails and beer.
You likely already know. But if not: You'll be in the heart of downtown Kansas City, which is enjoying an urban renaissance reflected in painting and music and dance and architecture, and also in local breweries, bistros, cocktails and coffee. It's a fun time to be here and you'll be in the middle of it all. You'll be within walking distance to everything (slight exaggeration, but not a large one).
Two blocks from the Kauffman Performing Arts Center. Dozens of galleries, bars and restaurants around the corner. A half mile from Liberty Memorial, Crown Center, Union Station. Under a mile to the Sprint Center, the College Basketball Experience, and the Power and Light District. If you're looking for a home base for your downtown Kansas City adventure, this is it.
Just So You Know... Depending on the route you take to arrive, your first impression of my neighborhood may not be awesome (a couple guests have mentioned this)—the city has some delayed maintenance to do on a highway ramp and several sidewalks, and there are a couple ugly buildings slated for redevelopment. But have no fear! This area is highly sought after and once you arrive, you'll see why (guests mention this too)—your loft is right in the middle of KC's downtown renaissance. So no worries.
A lot of your destinations will be within walking distance if you're working or playing downtown. Light rail runs downtown, and Bike Share KC rentals are available nearby, as well as a comprehensive bus system. Uber is also popular around here. You'll have free street parking at our location, a quiet residential boulevard just around the corner from all the action.
Other things to note
I supply bedding, towels, an equipped kitchen, and all basic amenities as well as high speed internet, a blue tooth music player, and Netflix and Amazon Prime video on demand. If you have questions about specific items, feel free ask. The loft has two fully functional wood stoves. If you'd like to use them, let me know in advance, and I'll stock them with hardwood and give you a rundown on operation for an additional $15. There's a basement laundry room available if you're staying five nights or more. If you'd like a key, just ask.
