About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Air mattress, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Historic Brookside home, in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, 1-mile from the heart of the action!

This 4 bedroom, 2½ bathroom home is located just south of the Country Club Plaza, in Brookside - the safest neighborhood in Kansas City.

The house is exceptionally large - 2500 square feet of indoor living space - featuring high ceilings, tall windows, and period fixtures. Enhancing those quarters are two outdoor areas: the front porch for morning coffee, and the back garden for dining alfresco.

The bedrooms are nicely sized and comfortably appointed, the mattresses topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. The master bedroom has an attached sunroom and an en-suite bathroom; the other bedrooms share the hall bathrooms.

The kitchen is fully equipped and updated with granite counter tops and stainless appliances; the French doors lead out to the deck.

What you can expect: It is my aim to provide guests five-star amenities. The same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a gorgeous neighborhood, cleanliness, quality linens and towels, comfortable mattresses and high speed internet.

Location: we are minutes to downtown where you will find: Sprint Center, Kansas City Symphony, Power and Light and Chiefs and Royals Stadiums. And within walking distance to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants and nightlife in Brookside and the Country Club Plaza.

Please note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving!

Here's what AB from Oklahoma had to say about her stay: The listing was accurate. This is a beautiful, spacious house with all the qualities that made us feel at home. There is a wide, inviting front porch, perfect for leisurely coffee. Neighborhood is traditional, quiet, charming, and we always felt perfectly safe. Gloria went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to accommodate our every need. All the basics, of course, plus many extra touches that made us feel Special. We applaud her! Overall, this was a wonderful visit we won't forget - in all the nicest ways. We highly recommend a visit at Gloria's House.

KC house on tree-lined street

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful old house with a wide front porch on a nostalgic, quiet tree-lined street in KC close to the plaza and other amenities. Matt was very congenial and responsive. We comfortably hosted family in the area for several get-togethers. Beds were very comfortable. The interior had classic broad woodworking features and the house sang it's own song through charmingly creaky floors. Be careful who stays in upstairs bedroom as stairs are very steep and not well lighted. Ask for instructions for the sauna and TVs.

Wonderful place for a large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Our two children (and our three grandchildren) who live on the east and west coasts met us in KC for a few days before Christmas. The space was wonderfully accommodating for our needs and fit the bill quite nicely. Yes, the floors squeak a bit but so what?? The kids brought white noise makers so the little ones could sleep without being disturbed. It was also a lovely benefit to be able to bring our pup with us. The kitchen was well appointed, I brought a very large stock pot for soup and also brought a 9 x 13 casserole dish, and that allowed us to make a large breakfast casserole. We enjoy cooking as a family so appreciated all the pots and utensils that were available. We also appreciated the fact that even though the house is decorated there are not alot of items that little hands could pick up and potentially destroy -- i.e., the house is kid friendly. Finally, the house is in a gorgeous neighborhood, conducive for nice walks, and especially beautiful dressed up in christmas finery at this time of year. Thank you again for allowing us to have our "early" Christmas together! SIncerely, The Elliott-Vallandingham-Jedras family (LeClaire, Brooklyn, Seattle!)
