Last week I stayed at the cutest airbnb for the second time. I discovered this little gem in the heart of Kansas City in May 2020. At that time the world was two months in to quarantine, I was jobless, home schooling my 9 year old child and completely desperate for a change of scenery. I took to airbnb to discover somewhere interesting to stay for a couple of nights. I needed somewhere out of the ordinary and magical because life was feeling so depressing and monotonous during this time. And it had to have some kind of feature that would entertain my kid-- he was dying for a break from routine probably more than I was. As soon as I saw the pictures of this completely renovated airstream I knew this was the place! This charming tiny home looks like something you would find at Joshua Tree or in Palm Springs. Complete with a hanging egg chair and outdoor hot tub, the ambiance is something out of a quaint little dream. It was the perfect quarantine staycation. BOOKED! We loved it! Lennox didn't want to leave and neither did I. As a kid, this place had to feel super magical and I knew our little stay would be a memory that he would keep forever.
Fast forward an entire year- wtf 2020 was such a blur- we were dying to go back. Lennox, now 10, was excited to tell all his friends at school that we would be returning to "our RV" and I couldn't wait to get back in that hot tub. The newly renovated airstream has a queen sized bed that is actually very comfortable, running water, a fully operational bathroom and shower, a cute kitchen that I definitely didn't cook in, and a gorgeous leather sofa that we curled up together on to watch Free Willy. Lennox had never seen it, and I hadn't watched it since I was a kid. I definitely cried lol. There is also a grill outside for guests to use, but I'm more of an order pizza while camping kind of girl.
I have a feeling the second time at "our RV" was not our last time. Some places just feel extra special, and this is one of those places. Looking forward to next time.
