  • Gem near downtown


    My mother and I stayed here for around a week while cleaning out her house and it was a dream. Clean, bright and sunny, very relaxing porch with swing and furniture. A nice range of kitchen items. and comfortable bed. The couch pulls out too. It is on the hard side but still fine. Everything seems quite new too. It was fantastic to relax there at the end of the day, and it is next to a grocery store, which made grabbing a few items really easy. Short walk to great restaurants and bars on Ingersoll too. This will be my first choice for staying in Des Moines any time I visit. Great place for professionals or couples. The host, Sonia, was really great too!

    We were lucky enough to find this gem during one of our recent trips to Des Moines. The house is bright, clean, and located in a nice/quiet neighborhood. The hosts provided great communication and were very friendly. We will definitely look to stay here again in the future!
