About Mark Mahan

My wife and I live in Kansas CIty with our two children. I own an internet retail business and spend a lot of time working from home. We love to travel and cook, and have stayed at many houses across the country. We were inspired to join the community and make our one house available to others. We travel a lot for business, and someday we would love to go back and visit Europe again. I'm an English major and she's a music theory major so we fit well together. I write the lyrics, she writes the melody, and the kids add their own harmony.

Mark Mahan purchased this house in 2010

Why Mark Mahan chose Kansas City

We loved this house, and when we moved out, we wanted to give other people the chance to enjoy it as much as we have. It is a very peaceful home and has many wonderful memories for us!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this charming house the first time we walked inside and sat in front of the huge picture window in the living room! The large deck is a perfect place to enjoy the Kansas City seasons, and the kitchen is light and open. It is situated on a beautiful corner lot, and the easy access to anywhere in the city made it a great place to live.

Comfortable, convenient, and well situated

  • 5 of 5

We had a family trip passing through KC. We wanted to have a shared space but not be crowded on each other. This was the perfect place for the three of us. Really easy getting to and from attractions and super easy people to work with. Thanks Mark!

Peaceful, cozy, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying her with our family, our kids loved the beds (and we did too), the tv and all the movies they could watch! It had all we needed for our stay and was close to the different places we were visiting.

What a great place to have we will be back for sure!

It was home away from home!!

Great stay at a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate, well appointed and cozy. The property is located a quiet neighborhood south of downtown Kansas City. Its an easy drive up HWY 71 to any location in KC. The owner, Mark, is a great guy. He's super easy to work with.

I can't recommend this house enough. I plan to stay here every time I'm in the area.

Car: recommended

The house is one mile from two major highways, which allows you to be almost anywhere in Kansas City in about 20 minutes or less. There are many great parks and trails nearby. We love going on walks along the tree-lined trails, and cooling off at one of the nearby lakes. The Plaza and Westport are only 15 minutes away, and Downtown is about 20 minutes. The house is located less than a mile from IHOPKC.
