The Rosedale Retreat (Up) is an adorable boutique escape in the heart of Midtown KC just two blocks from The University of Kansas Hospital & Medical School and numerous restaurants and bars. We feature off-street parking, laundry access, gigabit WiFi, a full kitchen, remodeled bathroom, massive deck with a fire table and grill! All the comforts of home along with a little bit of Kansas kitsch & cool to boot!

The space
The Rosedale Retreat (UP) is on the top floor of our two story 1947 stucco breadbox bungalow. There may be AirBnB guests staying in our (DOWN)stairs Retreat on the bottom floor, however no spaces are shared except the laundry area. AirBnB can be confusing in its descriptions of "entire home." This listing is not for the entire house. It is for the entire top floor unit and large deck out back (which you will have all to yourselves). If you have any questions please message us before booking!

This UPstairs space is charming, eclectic, and is appointed with your comfort & privacy in mind. Stream a movie in the living room on our 60" RokuVision or relax outside beside the fire table on your private deck under a canopy of beautiful trees and twinkly lights. We also have a full propane grill to bring out your inner barbecue chef. We offer a complete kitchen, modern appliances and a remodeled bathroom with a full-size tub. Oh yeah, and coffee, LaCroix, and filtered water too! We feature gigabit mesh WiFi, a comfy queen-size bed and convenient charging stations on either side of the bed + an office desk. We have all the Kansas kitsch, funky art and interesting books you'll be able to handle. That's a promise from The Sunflower State! :-)

Please be kind! Read the house rules prior to booking The Rosedale Retreat (Up). HOUSE RULES are listed toward the bottom of this AirBnB listing page. Just click the "Show More" button to see them! We'll also list the basic rules here, so there is no confusion. Airbnb requires you to agree to these house rules before booking. If you make a reservation, we assume that you have read our listing details and have agreed to the house rules. If you have any questions, please message us before making a reservation!

- No visitors who are not on your Airbnb reservation are allowed without prior consent from us. Just ask first!
- No babies, infants or minors under the age of 18 are permitted at The Rosedale Retreat
- No pets
- No candles inside
- Quiet hours from 10pm - 8am

- NO VISITORS without prior consent. Visitors who are not on your AirBnB reservation will not be allowed at the property without prior consent from us. If you want to have up to four (4) adult visitors over in addition to the two guests allowed on the reservation, we allow and encourage that, kindly just ask first! Under no circumstances should check in instructions or house keys be shared with someone who is not listed on your AirBnB reservation.

- NO CHILDREN under the age of 18 allowed. We love and adore kiddos and think they are the cutest little things ever, but minors are not permitted at The Rosedale Retreat. Safety is our #1 concern in this category and our space is not conducive to the safety of children.

- NO PETS are allowed at The Rosedale Retreat. We love pets too! But your furry friends are not permitted at The Retreat due to cleanliness, noise, and out of respect for current and future guests with respiratory issues.

- NO CANDLES allowed inside. We have had one too many close calls with fire related issues due to guests breaking this rule. We do provide some awesome LED candles that still create a great vibe!

- QUIET HOURS are from 10 pm - 8am. Please be respectful as you may have fellow AirBnB guests DOWNstairs. We aslo have next door neighbors with young children, so this is not an appropriate AirBnB for parties, events or photo shoots.

We love being Superhosts! We want you to have an amazing time! The Rosedale Retreat House Rules are in place to preserve the integrity of the guest experience at The Rosedale Retreat. This ensures that everyone has an amazing time. Thank you for being so cool and understanding!
