Property description

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

Comfortable 4 bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, located in one of the most upscale areas of the city – just south of the Country Club Plaza, in Brookside - the safest neighborhood in Kansas City.

The home 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 a private bathroom; the other bedrooms share the hall bathroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped and recently renovated to include granite countertops and stainless appliances, and the bathrooms are up-to-date as well.

What you can expect: it is my aim to provide guests a five-star experience. Touches that I appreciate when I travel: cleanliness, quality linens and towels, comfortable mattresses, wireless internet and eclectic decor.

Location: We are minutes to downtown, where you can find the Sprint Center, the Kansas City Symphony, Power and Light, and the Chiefs and Royals Stadiums. And within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and clubs on 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.

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I prefer quiet homes in residential neighborhoods whenever we travel, and offer our home to like-minded people when we're away. It is my mission to provide my guests with the same touches that I appreciate with lodging: a home that is in a vibrant, safe neighborhood - yet is close to the action, cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable bedding, wireless internet and eclectic decor. My hobbies include: Surrounding myself with beauty, preparing nutritious but delicious meals, collecting old tablecloths, staying vibrantly healthy, keeping spiritually alive, learning about natural medicine, listening to the Grateful Dead and other blues music, traveling, reading, writing, being next to the mountains and the ocean, chatting with family and annoying them with practical jokes, dreaming big dreams and being a great mom.
