Monthly-plus stays only. Wonderful location, right around the corner from the excitement and night life of Westport, as well as the 24-hour grocery store. Within 1 mile of the Plaza, Kansas City Art Institute, and KU Medical Center, as well as bus lines including the MAX on Main Street.
Modern ceiling fans, brand new floors, and uptown style. Detached garage with space for 1 vehicle inside and 1 vehicle in the driveway. Large finished storage room above the garage.
The living room features a sleeper sofa, 2 cozy recliner chairs, flat screen tv and dvd / usb player, and a mirrored hall closet. Enjoy Google Fiber Gigabyte + TV (1000 Mbps download / upload speeds and 150 + TV channels), and phone with unlimited long distance to U.S. and Canada.
The office includes wireless printer-copier-scanner, wireless/ethernet router, rechargable battery charger, and supplies (paper, scissors, stapler, three-hole punch, envelopes, surge protectors / USB outlets, etc).
The bathroom and kitchen are brand new, completely remodeled (except for the vintage built-in cabinets, which we have kept). New countertops and white porcelain double sink, metro tile floors, Bosch dishwasher, Amana gas stove, and LG refrigerator. A roll-around kitchen island cart, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and dishes, glassware, cooking utensils, and pots and pans (stainless steel and cast iron) have all been provided.
Right off the kitchen, you'll find a laundry room with LG high efficiency washer and dryer. There's an enclosed front porch, and a brick patio with a fenced backyard out back.
The larger bedroom has a king-sized bed with a high quality firm mattress, two closets, 2 nightstands and reading lamps, and a dresser with mirror and six drawers. This bedroom also features an en suite vanity sink. Plenty of high quality linens and pillows provided.
The bed in the smaller bedroom has a high quality firm Twin XL mattress. ('XL' means extra long, so it is the same length as a King size bed.) The small bedroom features bookcases, a desk for two, and a closet with drawers and hanging space. Linens including pillows, sheets, and blankets for the Twin XL bed are provided.
There is a bonus room at the back of the house with a green and white desk, filing cabinet, swivel chair, and surge protector strip. This room can alternatively be used as a sleeping cove. The bonus room has an extra long (80-inch) foldable sleeping cot and 5-inch thick fiber bed.
The house is only 1 story, but the garage has 2 levels. The first level has space for your car, and then you can go upstairs to the second level for storage. The garage lower level has space for 1 large car or compact pick-up truck, plus bicycles or motorcycle. The vertical clearance in the garage is 76 inches (6' 4"), so a very tall vehicle may not fit. Outside the garage, the driveway has space for 1 car.
The house and garage have 24-hour response security system, providing peace of mind when you're away.
Thank you for taking a look at our house in vibrant and historic Old Westport. We are looking for non-smoking guests; pets only with permission and pet deposit. We accept stays for a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 6 months.
If you would enjoy staying near downtown and the Plaza in an area that is walkable, bike-friendly, and fun, you will love this house and its location. I have hosted touring opera singers, traveling health workers, students on internships, executives on short-term assignments, new grandparents in town to help with the baby, and people new to the area and needing a temporary 'landing place.' Whatever your need, I feel certain you'll be impressed with the cleanliness, convenience, and style of this charming home in Westport. It is one of a kind and a work of art. Please feel free to contact me (Rachel) with any questions. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Additional information about rental rates
- Refundable Damage Deposit $1,000
- Taxes Not included
The price of $2100 per month is for a 6-month lease; touch-up maid service (bathroom, kitchen, floors) is included once per month. If staying only one month, the price is $3000 per month. This is because of the cost of changeover deep cleaning, making everything spic and span for you and your family, with all supplies re-stocked especially for you (including laundry detergent, soap, shampoo, tp, trash bags, and more). If you are staying 2 months, the monthly price is $2700, 3 months it's $2550, 4 months it's $2400, 5 months it's $2250, and 6 months it's $2100. If you are staying 2 months or less, $3000 is due now (non-refundable), and the remainder is due 15 days prior to check-in. If staying 3-6 months, I require first and last month's rent to reserve the house for your time period.
In addition, the refundable $1000 security deposit (plus $250 refundable pet deposit, if applicable) is due 15 days prior to check-in prior to booking.
Pets are only allowed with prior permission.
There is no need to stay in exact 1-month increments. You can stay for 6 weeks or 15 weeks or some other length of time specific to your needs.
Owner's cancellation policy:
50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I'm from the Kansas City area originally. I purchased this home in 2014 as a second home. Over the summer I've remodeled and furnished this home with the utmost care. Meanwhile I have 4 years of experience hosting a furnished apartment rental in San Francisco, where I live full time. I understand what guests need when they are only here for a short while, with no time to worry about little things like buying bath mats or paper towels. Rest assured, when I furnish a place, everything is there. I'm a civil engineer by trade, but I truly enjoy decorating and making a place feel like home. I hope this is something you'll be able to appreciate when you stay at my little house in Old Westport.
Why the Owner Chose Midtown - Westport, Kansas City, MO, USA:
It's very important to me to live in a place where I can walk to places-- grocery store, parks, museums, restaurants, library, bank, cafes, etc. At this little house, I have all of that, and more. My family members and long-time friends live nearby. It's such a wonderful feeling to have purchased a place that is right where I came from and right where I want to be. I've had a lot of fun remodeling this house and setting it up with custom furniture. I hope you will enjoy it, too!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was built in the 1870s. When I bought it in summer 2014, it was a solid house in need of some cosmetic upgrades. Now that it has been renovated, the house shines with happiness and warmth! If you had seen the house 'before' and 'after' you'd be inspired by the transformation. What I love most about the house is its location, convenient to everything in Westport/Midtown/Plaza by walking, and so convenient to everything else in Kansas City by car or bus. This house is for someone who appreciates being in a walker's paradise ('walkscore' of 91), right in the middle of it all.
