About The Owner

I lived and owned in the neighborhood for over 7 years, I had a short commute to work and enjoyed all of the benefits of a large city but still had the charm of a small suburb.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Rosedale

When I left the area for a new job I didn't want to give up the city life. I enjoy coming back dining in the same restaurants and seeing the shows and museums in the area.

What makes this house unique

When I stay at the property it is my home away from home with all the amenities I enjoy. When I stay at other places I find myself comparing my place to where I am staying...I realize my house might not be your house but a comfortable bed, clean linens, an inviting neighborhood, kids that are happy is what I strive for, I enjoy coming back to the area and settling in for a moment in time to enjoy my family and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you sincerely for all your info and quick responses in the past month. The house was perfect for our stay. I can't believe we managed to get all 3 kids to sleep in the same room. There are so many things we loved about the house: the beds were so cozy, the hardwood floor was beautiful, towels were super soft, the updating of the house was done so tastefully (esp loved the kitchen backsplash), the movie selection was fun and extensive. The house was a perfect location for us. We went to a Children's Museum in Shawnee, went to the plaza several times, went to Crowne Center and Kaleidescope and Fritz's, and Rosedale BBQ was awesome! I wanted to offer some simple suggestions to improve a couple of things for future guests. It would be nice to have a small stool in the bathroom so the kids could reach the sink easier and more independently. The step to the front porch is a bit high for kids, older folks or people with mobility issues. It might be nice to add a small step.

Thank you again and Happy Holidays!!

4th or 5th time staying here. Love it

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th or 5th time that i have stayed here. The house is nice, has a big back yard and is located literally 5 min from the Kansas convention center. Quick trip close by, and a great Mexican restaurant near by

Clean and happy

We love the house and it's location. The collection of Disney movies keeps the kids entertained while the adults need a minute to rest. Great place.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

From the exterior, it doesn't look like much but the inside says it all. Hardwood floors and open floor plan. Fully stocked kitchen. Large screen TV. Bed in master bedroom was very comfy. No driveway though and requires you to park in the street. We traveled with our 2 dogs and fenced in backyard was nice. Hiking/nature trail was couple blocks away. Excellent location and only minutes from many places we visited. Will definitely consider staying again.

Home was as described. Very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Could hear train but not a problem. Heater was noisy, had a whistling sound when on. Big yard for kids. Dagwood's Cafe was good for breakfast run 1st morning as got in around midnight. All your directions were good except for entertainment in living room. Never could get anything working. Very good bed in front bedroom. Wonderful idea for house access.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

When we first pulled up the neighborhood looked a little sketchy. We were doubting our decision to stay here. We were pleasantly surprised. The home is updated nicely inside. It's clean and comfortable. The street was quite, no concerns about the neighborhood. If you stay there, plan to visit the diner just a block over. It's called Dagwood's Cafe. Good people and AMAZING food.

Clean home however close to train tracks

  • 3 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable. Everything was as presented in photos however it is located very close to train tracks. The trains run frequently throughout the night blowing their whistles, so if you are a light sleeper be prepared for that. Otherwise we were pleased.
