Historic Brookside home, in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, 1-mile from the heart of the action!
This 4 bedroom, 2½ bathroom home is located just south of the Country Club Plaza, in Brookside - the safest neighborhood in Kansas City.
The house is exceptionally large - 2500 square feet of indoor living space - featuring high ceilings, tall windows, and period fixtures. Enhancing those quarters are two outdoor areas: the front porch for morning coffee, and the back garden for dining alfresco.
The bedrooms are nicely sized and comfortably appointed, the mattresses topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. The master bedroom has an attached sunroom and an en-suite bathroom; the other bedrooms share the hall bathrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped and updated with granite counter tops and stainless appliances; the French doors lead out to the deck.
What you can expect: It is my aim to provide guests five-star amenities. The same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a gorgeous neighborhood, cleanliness, quality linens and towels, comfortable mattresses and high speed internet.
Location: we are minutes to downtown where you will find: Sprint Center, Kansas City Symphony, Power and Light and Chiefs and Royals Stadiums. And within walking distance to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants and nightlife in Brookside and the Country Club Plaza.
Please note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving!
Here's what AB from Oklahoma had to say about her stay: The listing was accurate. This is a beautiful, spacious house with all the qualities that made us feel at home. There is a wide, inviting front porch, perfect for leisurely coffee. Neighborhood is traditional, quiet, charming, and we always felt perfectly safe. Gloria went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to accommodate our every need. All the basics, of course, plus many extra touches that made us feel Special. We applaud her! Overall, this was a wonderful visit we won't forget - in all the nicest ways. We highly recommend a visit at Gloria's House.
Kansas City Rental Agreement
First, please allow me to apologize for the tone of this Rental Agreement and Cancellation Policy, as it is much harsher than I want to be toward my guests, most of whom are BEYOND fabulous!
That said, every year or so, we do get that one dishonorable person, no matter how well I've vetted them. Still, I am so sorry for catching you up in that situation.
I accept reservation requests from guests who are serene by nature: people who are looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat in the urban core and will respect our neighbors.
If you decide to stay, there are conditions of the rental that you'll want to be comfortable with:
a. No parties: Although our home is private, I must maintain a calm, quiet atmosphere for my neighbors. Please know there can be no parties, receptions, loud music, and that quiet hours are in effect from 11pm-9am. Of course, normal family noises are to be expected;
b. Liability: Our home is privately owned. The host and owner are not responsible for any accidents, injuries, or illnesses that occur while on the premises, nor are they responsible for the loss of personal belongings or valuables of guests;
c. Access: Sometimes we may need to come by to retrieve clothing, put up linens, or to allow workers in to maintain the property. Of course, you would be notified first. We try to schedule access for when guests are not present, but sometimes that is not always possible. I will contact you if I need to get inside. However, if we need immediate access and you are not reachable, we will let ourselves in;
d. The 3rd floor is cooler in winter and warmer in summer;
Unfortunately, not abiding the conditions is cause for immediate removal, with no monies refunded.
Again, please forgive the tone of this missive!
My husband and I prefer quiet homes in residential neighborhoods whenever we travel, and offer our home to like-minded people when we're away.
