About Steven S

I enjoy adventurous cooking and travel, hiking, playing catch, frisbee, art, architecture, design, soccer, golf, ballet, beer with a bite, BBQ, full bodied wine, an occasional stiff drink, strong coffee and most of all: time with my family and friends.

Why Steven S chose Riverview

Everyone who's stayed here has found this property to be more comfortable, more interesting, and a better value compared to staying in a hotel.

What makes this House unique

Just a cool space. Lots of natural light, nice big deck off the bedroom suite, fenced back yard, front porch has a good view of the downtown Kansas City skyline, and its very centrally located. A great spot from which to explore and enjoy Kansas City.

                                                                  Svetlana R.

                                                                  Adorable and comfortable

                                                                  Shari D.

                                                                  We stayed in this great little house for two and a half months. The neighborhood is older but very friendly and safe. Steve was wonderful to work with and was always available to answer questions. The bed is very comforable as well as the other furnishings. Having Google Fiber available was amazing and spoiled us to other internet and cable service. We enjoyed having a full size washer and dryer. The lower patio and upper deck are both nice areas to spend time outside. We would not hesitate to recommend this house to our friends or family.

                                                                  The Perfect Possible Stay for Kansas City

                                                                  Luke C.El Paso

                                                                  My girlfriend and I came from out of town to visit relatives over the Christmas/New Year's season this winter, and initially chose this rental due to its close location to NKC and its very afforable price range. Little did we know that we would be getting the perfect place for our stay in Kansas City.

                                                                  When we arrived, we were initially struck by the extreme cleanliness of the house. In addition, there were basic food items that proved to be extremely useful for us while we were there, as we did a good deal of cooking while at this house.

                                                                  The location of the house was also perfect. Due to the quick access to the highway system in main downtown, we could essentially be anywhere in Kansas City within 15 minutes of walking out the front door - something that was a huge relief for us, as we spent a good amount of time during the day traveling around Kansas City and through the Northland.

                                                                  The neighborhood was also quiet and felt like a regular local neighborhood. No overly showy or expensive cars and houses were to be found here, but we actually preferred it like that. It felt like we were simply the new neighbors in a quiet little neighborhood! At no point were we ever concerned for our safety - the local vibe and the security system installed in the house are more than enough to put even the slightly paranoid at ease here!

                                                                  We have many plans to return to the Kansas City area this year, and after this trip both my girlfriend and I know one thing for sure - we will be exclusively renting this property if it is available!

                                                                  Kansas City or Bust

                                                                  Happy TravelerSonora CA USA

                                                                  A very charming little house. I was on a business venture trip at the National Narrow Gauge Convention, and it was perfect for what I needed. Close to the downtown areas so when I had time at the end of the day I could enjoy the evening there. You need a car, but very short drive. I do really prefer staying in houses when I travel. I can cook my own meals and relax. One thing I thought was very nice very helpful was the kitchen was stocked with all the basics like spices, tinfoil, and many things you use so little of but need. Another very nice feature was the back private deck. Yes there was sun lol. A must see in downtown is the Steamboat Arabia museum. Oh and a must restaraunt is Jack's Stakes out in the Overland Park area (there are three other locations) on Metcalf Ave. BBQ to die for and carrot cake you will not forget.

                                                                  It was great to meet the owner too. Very helpful. I would strongly recommend this house and would stay there again. All the feature of the house worked perfectly.

                                                                  Wonderful Getaway!

                                                                  Lynn M.

                                                                  Great place with a wonderful view of downtown KC! It's central location makes it easy to get nearly anywhere in the KC metro area. Host Steven was very welcoming. Will definitely make plans to stay again.

                                                                  This is a very cute, quaint cottage.

                                                                  Roberta J.Quartz Hill, CA

                                                                  I stayed here for a week while visiting with a friend. This was the perfect cottage for 1 or 2 people at the most. It was very well laid out and it had just about everything that I needed to make my stay comfortable.

                                                                  The owner of the property deserved 5 stars. I was supposed to be at his property a week earlier but because of some unforeseen problems, I couldn't make it. With 1 day notice he allowed me to change my rental week to the following week.

                                                                  The only 1 negative thing that I could say was when I arrived there was a cleaning problem in the restroom but it was taken care of quickly and the rest of the stay was perfect.

                                                                  If I ever make it back to Kansas I would use this cottage again. It was simply perfect for what I needed. Very quiet neighborhood and everything was easy to find.

                                                                  Thank you again for the hospitality.

                                                                  Renee was a perfect guest in every way. I take all guest feedback most sincerely to heart and appreciate Renee’s feedback including the need to more closely inspect the shower curtain liner between guest visits, clean it when possible, and replace it when necessary. I’ve amended my cleaning checklist accordingly. Thank you again Renee for selecting my property for your stay in K.C. and for your feedback. I really appreciate it.

                                                                  Rates and availability are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Stays as short as 4 nights may be accommodated upon request when the check-in date is not more than a month or so out. In such cases the standard rate is $125/night and the holiday rate (around Xmas & Thanksgiving) is $160/night. Note Regarding the Pet Fee: VRBO does not allow for a monthly, weekly or daily rate increase when a pet is present. So I have to include the rent increase per pet here: $200/month; $60/week; $10/day. When a Pet is present the Fully Refundable Deposit may be increased.
