This fabulous "builders own home" is set in a stunning acre of trees with a private stream and organic gardens. Just four blocks from I-35, minutes to dwtn KC and south OP.
This is a working urban farm/garden, changing seasonally. It has beautiful private places to sit, relax, read, or work on the wrap-around deck, surrounded by the sites and sounds of nature. It's a hidden gem, making your stay extra comfortable.
The large second story bedroom has it's own private bathroom and loft area. The house is open with large inviting views to the backyard. There are great spaces inside and out to relax and enjoy the beauty while being conveniently located to the Plaza, Westport and southern Johnson County.
We live in a safe urban/suburban neighborhood that has all the amenities of city living and the beauty and privacy of country living.
Guests will have access to all the main floor kitchen and living spaces. You are welcome to use the TV in the shared family room.
The amazing wrap-around porch and deck, overlooking the stream and gardens, are the favorite spots for breakfast, meals and late night drinks. You are welcome to explore the vegetable and flower gardens and spend time enjoying the greenhouse (used mostly for hosting outdoor movies and garden parties). We also have a four-season hoop house bursting with salad greens in the winter months. You are welcome to nibble on the many edibles in the garden too!
The 3 other second story bedrooms are off limits, as they are our private office and bedroom spaces.
Interaction with guests
We run our businesses from home, so we are flexible and available during your stay.
We are outgoing and welcoming, but also sensitive to your privacy. We ask the same respect to ours as well.
Breakfast: You are welcome to help yourself to what we have available.
I usually have cereal, fruit, granola, yogurt, organic eggs and breads. There is always our very own local raw honey and homemade jams too! I have a large choice of teas, black, green and herbal and great KC Roasterie coffee.
We teach local classes on organic gardening, beekeeping and herbalism from the gardens. So we love to share and learn from our guests too.
We are world travelers and enjoy sharing our lives and passions with others. We look forward to welcoming you to our home!

My husband and I are outgoing, adventerous and love to live life fully. We own our own businesses. We love to travel and meet new people.
I'm an organic urban gardener and teacher, well connected with the local food movement in KC. Larry is a home builder and beekeeper.
We consider ourselves "foodies". We appreciate and seek out, great, local, healthy food at home and wherever we travel.
Our families have lived in the Kansas City area for several generations. So, we have lots of history and roots here. We love to share the "best" places to eat and visit with those passing through.
When we travel, we stay with other Airbnb hosts and love the rich experiences and relationships that each brings to our trips. As Airbnb hosts, we look forward to sharing our wonderful home with other travelers.
