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 Terrace Lake Gardens

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.

Small, but nice home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this location for three nights. This is a small home, but larger and more private than a hotel which is what I was looking for. Pretty clean place, only a little dusty in areas. This was a baby and child friendly place which we needed as we have three children. They really enjoyed the trampoline downstairs and some of the toys in the closet! I also liked the fact a laundry room was on site. The renters seemed very nice and easy to get a hold of if there were any issues/questions. We all had a nice time staying at this location! Thank you!

An Absolute Delightful Place to Stay, truly a home away from Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this Property was Awesome! It is a very cozy home on a cozy friendly street. It is close to about everywhere via the highway systems nearby. The home had all the amenities that any one would need and then some. The owners have thought of everything! The owners were very nice to work with and the communication of things we needed to know was superb! They have added lots of extra niceties to include Special Imported Coffee from Italy! Mark and Jill, you have a lovely home and thank you so much for sharing it with us! We would definitely stay at this home again should we need a place to stay in the Kansas City area ever again! Highly recommend this rental, super nice and very reasonable pricing!

Nearest Airport
45 Miles
Nearest Motorway
1 Miles
I 49, I 435
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.
