Overview

About the property

Wichita is awesome. Find out for yourself!

We do not charge a separate cleaning fee as many HomeAway properties do. We have the highest standards of keeping our home Super Clean as we ,too, use HomeAway when we travel and this is very important to us! Featured are three comfortable bedrooms, 2 full baths, a living room, dining room, fully-equipped kitchen and a large finished family/game room in the basement with a 50" 4K television. In addition, we have a three car garage.

Our home has a country feel with views of farmland and a lake with catch and release fishing. There are walking/ hiking trails, and a swimming pool (summer season), for our guests to enjoy. Not far from our home is a top rated YMCA, shopping and restaurant areas, and a beautiful library/park in the community of Andover. Downtown Wichita is easily accessible from our home.

Included with our home are high speed internet and cable television. For your laundry needs, we have a high efficiency washer and dryer in a separate laundry room. There is a very nice master bedroom with queen bed, and two other bedrooms; one with a queen bed and the other a twin bed with a pull out trundle. There is also a queen bed in the basement family room. All sheets and towels are provided.

A pet may be considered, if approved, with a refundable deposit, but we want your pet to be kenneled when you are away from our home. Our home is smoke-free! We therefore require a deposit which is non refundable if smoking is detected.

Our goal is for you to be comfortable while you live or stay in our home. Come stay with us and enjoy more space and comfort than a traditional hotel room.

About Meredith Gillman

Our family has lived in the Wichita area for many years. In addition, we also were a military family and experienced living overseas. Living in the Wichita area has been enjoyable and is a community with lots to offer without being congested and overcrowded.

We, too, enjoy traveling and staying in rental homes. Using the HomeAway/VRBO rental site has been a great experience for our family.. Compared to staying in a hotel, a" home away from home" has enabled our vacations to be very memorable!

My husband and I decided it would be desirable to offer a home for out of town guests, travelers, and business clientele, so that they may have the comfort of "home" while visiting Wichita. It is our desire to help our guests feel as comfortable as we can! Our motto is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"! As we prepare our home for each guests, we think about this verse from the Bible. So we hope you will stay with us whenever you are visiting Wichita!

Meredith Gillman purchased this house in 2012

A home away from home. Wichitawesome is my go to choice for Wichita accommodations. A 5 star home.

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat guest several times over. This home is at the top of our list for Wichita accommodations. The location is quiet and peaceful yet only minutes away from all the city has to offer. My family is always so comfortable at this home. It is very well equipped with all the comforts of being at our own home. The owner is very gracious. Our questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. I am hesitant to review this home so well even though it is much deserved. I simply don’t want to give away our secret so it’s always available when we come to Wichita for family visits.

Fantastic home!!

  • 5 of 5

As Wichita natives, we travelled from Arizona to visit our children and grandchildren during the holidays. Our stay at "Wichitawesome" was great. The home was quiet, clean, and very nice. We highly recommend, and will not hesitate to stay again during future visits. Thank you Meredith for your prompt communications!

Home a way from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay very much. The house was comfortable and accommodated our family during our visit for a family reunion. We wished we would have had time to walk the trail around the beautiful lake, but our itinerary was full with family functions in the Wichita area. It was wonderful that our immediate family could all stay in the same house giving us the comforts of home we would not have found in a cold hotel room. Thank you, Meredith for opening your home to us! You and your husband are great to work with. We look forward to a return trip in the future!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have your family stay in our home while you were in Wichita and we look forward to you coming again! We hope next time you will enjoy walking around the lake. Thanks for taking good care of our home!

Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Meredith was great to work with! The home was clean, very comfortable, more than adequately supplied. I've been to enough VRBO type accommodations to know this so was not a problem but could be if you don't know: bring your own bar or liquid soap for the shower.

This was a GREAT house. We enjoyed watching the deer and the turkeys in the field behind the house. Thanks Meredith!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying! Your group was great and left our home immaculate! Never thought of liquid soap for the shower. Thanks for the idea! Hope you will consider staying again!

Map

Car: recommended

Wichita is awesome! It is a city with many things to do and a good stopping place as you travel north, south, east or west with its location in the south central U.S.

There are restaurants for all tastes, 2 large malls, unique shopping areas, the award winning Sedgwick County Zoo, and a beautiful botanical garden named Botanica. Some of the museums in Wichita are Old Cowtown, Exploration Place, Wichita Art Museum, Museum of World Treasures and Kansas Aviation Museum to name a few

Not too far away lakes, Cheney and El Dorado State Parks are also places to visit. Fifteen minutes away, Sand Creek Station is in the top 25 of the best municipal golf courses in the nation. We are also very close to Flint Hills National Golf Course.

Wichita boast several fantastic YMCAs, one which is located close to our home.We have roller and ice skating rinks, mini golf courses, and Star Lite Drivein Theatre for the children and adults. There is also Intrust Bank Arena, and Hartman Arena where you can purchase tickets to the many attractions. Then there is the world famous Orpheum Theatre. Crown Uptown Dinner Theatre, and Cabaret Old Town. We have Frog Holler Paintball and laser tag. Not too far from Wichita is Tanganyika Wildlife Park and Hutchinson with its Salt Mine Underground Museum and

Kansas Cosmosphere Space Museum. These are just some of things to do in Wichita area. So spend some time in the middle of the country and experience Wichita.
