It’s official. We are hooked on Airbnb’s! With this being our first “big” trip following the pandemic, we opted to go the Airbnb route once more and we are sold for life! I think it will now be a rare occasion that we actually do hotel stays.
Most Airbnb’s in the Kansas City area are south of the river. We got lucky and found one for an amazing price just a few blocks away from the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum. It was an amazing location!
Our hosts were fantastic and gave us very easy directions to follow for accessing this basement apartment; not to mention they also gave fantastic restaurant recs! This Airbnb does have a separate entrance to access the basement apartment, but it looks like they will soon be adding an upper apartment as well given the work being done in the shared hallways above the stairs! That means two people will probably get to snag this ideal location!
After heading down the stairs, you had yet another door with code to access the apartment. When you first walk in, you are in the living room. This also doubles as the dining area, and the welcome sign was a nice homey touch!
The kitchen was off to the left of the dining space. It was small but still had a full size fridge, stove/oven, microwave, Keurig, and sink.
To the right of the living area, was the bedroom. Both the living room and bedroom had a TV, but we didn’t use it the entire time! We were too busy enjoying the area!
Finally, through a long hallway/closet space there was the bathroom. It’s tiny, but quite functional with a beautiful full shower.
We loved all the cute Kansas City area decor they placed in this apartment and can say that they certainly took advantage of living near an Ikea to furnish this place! (Who wouldn’t?)
This apartment had street parking, but we never had to fight for a space, even if we did park on the other side of the street a few times. The neighborhood felt very safe and there was access to several walking paths in the area. We really enjoyed the path just to the north of our place, but the river path and nearby conservation area were also nice!
You also can easily walk over to the art museum and enjoy their outdoor sculpture garden and we often trekked the mile to the Country Club Plaza for some fun shopping and dining! For the price we paid, this location can’t be beat!
