About Jeff Longwell

I am Jeff Longwell. I have lived in Plattsburg for over 11 years and my day job is being a computer programmer from my home. I manage the property with the help of my cleaners and close friends when needed.

Jeff Longwell purchased this house in 2013

Why Jeff Longwell chose Missouri

This is the 2nd vacation rental property in Plattsburg (2 houses next to each other). In the beginning never had any intention of using the first home as a 'business.' It started out as simply a project: a home to fix up and sell that was located next door to me. But after getting involved in working on this home, did not want to give it up.

Then one day had an idea to turn it into a vacation rental, and the rest as they say, is history.

That was all in 2011. In 2013, the property next door to the 1st rental (2 doors down from my own home) had became available. Given the success of the 1st rental and location of this property decided to expand the business.

What makes this house unique

Before entering the home, the 2 story house with its covered front porch and large double lot (which is about the size of a football field) sets the stage for what is awaiting inside.

Inside the entry way, with original hard wood flooring, wood stair case and pocket door separating the living room sets the feel for the home. Moving between the living room, dinning room and kitchen the original hardwood floors, tall ceilings and original wood trim gives one a feeling of spaciousness.

Unique attributes like the original parlor converted to a master bedroom, front 'nook' area which overlooks the staircase upstairs, and the quaint back staircase all adds to the experience.

6 kids and 8 adults

  • 5 of 5

14 of us, ranging in age from 13 months to 60 years, stayed here in mid-July. We've stayed in other VRBO homes from here to the East Coast and found this one to be our favorite sofar. The home was amazingly well-stocked. We found everything we needed to cook two meals a day and keep 6 little ones entertained and rested. Beds were comfortable and there were a more than adequate number of sleeping spaces. We enjoyed the grill in the back yard and the proximity to basic shopping. The community pool is great and we bought fresh produce from a stand a few blocks from the house. We used the house as home-base for our sight-seeing in Kansas City. There's a great zoo, Legoland and wonderful farm where the kids could fish and go on pony rides. We had great communication with the owner and would definitely stay there again.
