Overview

About the property

4 bed - 3.5 bath - 4000sf sumptuous house - Fully equipped - Host 8 to 12 guests

Our 4000 sf home has that modern Chateau feeling and we hope your stay will be as royal as can be.

You might read on the different reviews that in some instances we rented the entire house to our guests, in others we shared the house with our guests and provided breakfast, operating as a B&B. This is no longer the case, we only rent the entire house now and we don't live in the house any more. It will be all yours to enjoy :)

We are only a few minutes away from Crown Center (we are part of the Crown Center district & North Hyde Park area), 3 blocks from Martini Corner, Power & Light, Westport, Plaza, Downtown, River Market, Chiefs & Royals stadiums. We are perfectly centered in the city so nothing is far away and buses are only a block away.

The house is fully furnished, linen & towels, hair products, soap, etc. are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped. In short, you'll find in this house everything you need as you would find in your own home.

Note: due to the limited time we have in between 2 rentals to do laundry and clean, if you need more than one set of sheets, one bath towel, washcloth, hand towel (provided) please bring extra ones.

Other than a great kitchen, living and dining room, we have an awesome space on the 3rd floor, the "lounge" area with a bar, sofas, books, etc. A great place to relax.

Our rooms:

Louis XIV has a Queen size bed, its own en suite bathroom and large outdoor patio.

Victoria has a King size bed, its own bathroom across the hallway.

Louis-François has a King size bed and shares a bathroom with Anne-Elisabeth.

Anne-Elisabeth has a Queen size bed and shares a bathroom with Louis-François.

Bedding consist of duvets and duvet covers. The duvet cover is useful because it protects the duvet during use and is easily removed and easy to wash after each guest. It serves as a top sheet and makes the whole chore of making your bed a lot easier. It’s a single covering instead of a combination of sheets, blankets, quilts and other bed coverings.

Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV, as does the living room.

We have free Wi-Fi throughout the house (Google Fiber), central AC and heat.

There is plenty of parking space in the back of the house where 4 cars can easily park. (no more than 4 please and no parking or driving on the grass).

Our neighborhood is a melting pot of cultures and artists. We are right by 'Martini Corner' where you can walk to from the house and have a nice choice of bars and restaurants.

Last but not least, please note that, as specified on our listing and house rules only registered guests are allowed in the property: this house does not allow any type of event, social gathering/parties.

About Frederique Guette

My husband and I are French born. I'm from Paris, he is from Brittany (Celtic part of France, West coast). We still have our house in Brittany where we return every year.

I have lived in the US about 20 years, I was an AFS student in KC in 83 (foreign exchange student). My husband has lived here since early 2014 when we left France and decided to move to KC.

In two words, we love to travel, eat good food and meet people and we hope to meet you soon!

Frederique Guette purchased this house in 2014

Why Frederique Guette chose North Hyde Park

We love the neighborhood, a melting pot of cultures and artists, close to everything!

What makes this house unique

The house is right in the middle of everything, the Royals or Chiefs stadium, the midtown and downtown area as well as the Plaza and Westport.

The house is gorgeous and was completely remodeled a couple of years ago, we love the 3rd floor with its high ceiling and incredible chandelier.

Rehabbed, Well Maintained Mansion in Gentrifying Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply gorgeous - updated, new kitchen, refinished original floors, central air/heat, plenty of space (you can get lost in this house). Tastefully decorated, great art, responsive owner. Many we met told us the neighborhood was is famous for being home to Walt Disney's house. All of the homes are pretty big, not all are rehabbed. It is a booming, rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. We found it very safe and welcoming compared to gentrifying neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Martini Corner is two blocks away - highly recommend Tower Tavern and Brick House. Kittys Cafe A+ right around the corner. Everything is max a 5-15 minute Uber away. Easy walk to Union Station, even downtown if you have the legs. If you question the no shoes in the house policy, the minute you walk in you'll see why. The back deck could use some updating but other than that, this was a perfect retreat for a girls weekend.

Family Football GetAWay

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a football game. The pictures online do not do this place justice. There was plenty of space for our 8 people and plenty more room if needed. House was as described with bathroom amenities, wifi, and plenty of space for us to all be together without feeling crammed. We will definitely hope this house is available next time we are in the KC area.

Wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else when visiting Kansas City

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our annual NFL trip. Terrific character, very spacious, super clean, and we loved that all five adults had their own bedroom. The central location meant that everything we wanted to see was only a short Uber ride away, and several of the great restaurants suggested by the owner were within easy walking distance. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer. Thank you for hosting us.

Conveniently located and close (maybe 5 minute drive) to Kansas City Country Club Plaza. I loved that it was very easy to communicate with the owner and with HomeAway.
