On my most recent visit to Kansas City, Missouri, I stayed in an AirBnB in Midtown. This cozy studio apartment exemplifies exactly why I love AirBnBs so much: affordable pricing, unique design, and an overall home-y feeling.
The studio apartment is connected to the back of an historic home in the Volker neighborhood. There is a separate entrance in the back of the house, so it’s easy to come and go as you please. No part of the AirBnB is shared with the host—I fact, I didn’t see my hosts at all. I personally prefer this type of arrangement so as not to intrude on anyone’s space (and to insure that I have my privacy as well).
I was instantly impressed upon entering my AirBnB. Besides the fact that it was super cute, I was happy to see it had everything I needed for my stay. There is a queen-size bed, a desk, a full kitchen with a large dining table, a bathroom, and a living area with TV and a couch.
This Kansas City AirBnB has a simple, minimalist style with white walls and hardwood floors. While the apartment is quite understated, eclectic details arise with pops of color and small artwork hanging on the walls. The all-white bathroom features a subway-tile shower and double sinks.

Location: Kansas City AirBnB Midtown
As I said earlier, this Kansas City AirBnB is located in Midtown, specifically in the Volker neighborhood. This is an historic, residential neighborhood filled with beautiful homes.
Midtown is a great location if you have a car while in Kansas City. If you’re visiting without one, I’d suggest staying somewhere in the downtown area.
This AirBnB is just a few blocks away from the West 39th Street District. This street is filled with local restaurants, bars, and shops. It’s walkable from the apartment, and it’s a fun place to hang out. I recommend grabbing a pizza from Artego Pizza, or getting a bagel from Meshuggah Bagels.
Just a few blocks farther is the Old Westport neighborhood. Here you’ll find even more bars restaurants, and cafes. This area is pretty quiet during the day, but it becomes lively at night.
