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.

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!

Why Frederique Guette chose Kansas City

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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Eight sisters/cousins stayed over a long weekend at this house. We had a fantastic time! The house more than met our needs. We marveled at the vintage elements within the house - beautiful mouldings, transoms, original paneled doors.... There was plenty of room for all 8 of us to sit around and visit/eat. It could not have been better.

The home was perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully remodeled and furnished. It is in a great location for shopping and restaurants. We had three couples and a family of three staying at the home, so it was perfect that we had four bedrooms and 3-1/2 baths available. And the one teenager was able to be on her own on the third floor when she needed some teenager time.

We had a family gathering of 20 people one night and the deck and large kitchen easily handled all of us. The parking in the back easily accommodated 5 vehicles, including two large vans.

We enjoyed our stay in Kansas City! The house was more than accommodating for our group. We had a volleyball tournament at the Convention Center April 2-4. The location of the house put us less than 3 miles from the Convention Center. We had multiple families benefit from the coziness of the house. We had all the conveniences we needed. Our girls had three days of volleyball and we needed to keep them as comfortable as possible. We were able to prepare them home cooked meals and fellowship together with teammates and family. We will defiantly look for this house for future tournaments!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Marlaine for your nice review, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and we sincerely hope to see you again one day. Your flower arrangements were so incredible and the last little bouquet you gave us is still very much alive and looks amazing!! I need to know what flower this is and plant some, it never dies it seems! Thank you for the tip on the bakery, we had no idea. I love cinnamon rolls and will make sure and check it out (I have to admit I love the $1 ones at Ikea when they are warm ;)) - Thank you again so much, please say hello to your sister and husband! Take good care! Frédérique
