Kingdom Stays Neighbors

What can neighbors expect?

Good Question!



over 739 reservations & over 1960 hosted nights later

we can honestly say..
We have had ZERO neighbor complaints!

Neighbors have many legitimate questions about living near a non-traditional accommodation.


We recognize this is a newer way to utilize the property in a neighborhood and community so we make every effort to open these lines of dialogue, discussion, and answer any questions that come up about a short-term rental property.

We seek to be your best neighbor by improving the appeal, safety, and neighborly dynamic more than your average neighbor would.

This is important to our guests and this is important to us.
