                    The house was wonderful and so were the owners. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The kitchen was wonderful for cooking and baking. We had a great early Christmas with out family. Just perfect!

                    The house was absolutely perfect for our family. We went to Kansas City because all our children and grandchildren leave nearby (There were 9 of us all together). The house was big enough to accommodate all of us without feeling cramped. The kitchen was the best part for us, we made Christmas cookies, homemade ice cream and made several crafts at the large kitchen table. We were all able to fit around the table for meals as well. Mel and Mindy were great hosts and helped us out with a couple of extra pans that we needed for cooking so that we didn't have to bring them with us! We will definitely try to rent this house again on our next trip to Kansas City!

                    Myself and 3 friends stayed in Independence for 4 days while on a hunting outing. I reserved and rented this house for the duration of our stay. When my buddies arrived all they could do was go on and on about how nice a place it was and how well kept the house was. It was close to anything and everything that we needed and the owners were as nice as anyone you would ever want to meet. If we happen to be back in the area again, we will definitely be looking to reserve this home again. I would highly recommend this property to anyone that is going to the Kansas City area.

                    We had a group of 4 Dads and 3 teen boys for a football game at Arrowhead. We had plenty of place to sleep, hang out, eat. The back yard patio was perfect for the bonfire we had one night. Mel was gracious to have it all set up for us with firewood and water handy. The pictures don't do the kitchen and dining table justice - easy room for eight. All the beds were comfortable, with plenty of extra blankets, pillows available. Handy as the upstairs can be a bit cool. The rest was just like the pictures, if not better. It was very clean and well kept. Mel & Mindy were super easy to work with, had it all ready and showed us everything we needed and then left us to the place. I've checked in to a lot of condos and this was very welcoming, nice and easy. The home was also very convenient to the interstate and the stadium, without being too close, plus lots of shopping and conveniences nearby. This house was a home away from home in minutes and was everything we could want. Highly recommend it.

                    This home is spotless and spacious. We felt secure in the area as well. It is so convenient to drive right up to the entrance/porch. We go to the KC area once a year to hit the thrift stores and it is easy to access the freeways and highways. The owners of this home were kind, friendly and respectful of our privacy. We want to thank them for such a nice and affordable place to stay during our stay in Independence.

                    My husband and I rented this house for a week while we were working in town. We had car trouble in Tulsa and were going to get there very late. I asked Mindy if there were any grocery stores that stayed open that late as we were going to be hungry when we got there. Mel and Mindy offered to go to the store and pick up some things for us. Who does that sort of thing these days?? These are really good people.The house was better than the photos, and so clean it shined. Every bed in the house was sooo comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything, pots pans dishes, coffee makers in 2 sizes. Mindy said if there was anything that wasn't there she would get it for us. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are hoping to stay again next year!! Thanks again Mel and Mindy.

                    Mindy and Mel met us at the door and were so warm and friendly. The house has every need taken care and more than the usual items included in a VRBO. The house was lovely and spacious. Our visit was perfect and the assistance that Mel and Mindy provided helped us to navigate a new city easier. Should we have occasion to vist there again we will be staying there.

                    We loved our stay at the house! Everything we needed was within the area and we loved the clean and cozy house for our family vacation! We had five adults and two kids so the room setup worked out perfectly for us! Loved the wifi internet and the kitchen had everything we needed! It felt right at home for us and the owners being across the street was so convenient and nice! We went to the grocery store down the street quite a bit and they had a great produce selection and bakery. The photos don't do the house justice, it is so clean and so nice! Will stay again if we all come back to KC!

                    Everything about the house is just like the pictures and listing. The yard is nice and the area felt safe. It is nicely decorated and clean, and worked out great for our family of 5. There is also additional seating available in the dining area that you don't see in the pictures. It was ready as promised, and Mindy and Mel met us with the keys and gave a quick tour. They had a nice binder prepared with information, and really thought of everything we needed during our stay. They even brought over an extra t.v. for our teenagers to use. Having wi-fi was very useful, and of course you can't beat having access to a washer and dryer when you travel as a family. It does take some planning to have only one shower, but you would have that in a hotel too. At times the air conditioner upstairs didn't keep up and a larger/additional unit at the other end might have helped. It was a very hot week, so that may have been an exception. The fan added at the bottom of the stairs did help, and also blocked sounds from outside other reviews had mentioned. Overall it seemed quiet. The location is great for any place you intend to visit in Kansas City, and Independence itself has a lot to offer. We would definitely rent this house again. Thank you!
