My place is close to Downtown Des Moines, Blank Park Zoo, Principal Park, Airport, Fairgrounds & Gray's Lake. You’ll love my place because of proximity to downtown & the airport. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The space

You can have a spot in the garage for 1 vehicle. The space is in our basement. There is 1 bed and a couch that is comfortable for 3 guests but could fit 4 guests. There is a TV/Apple TV and mini fridge in the guest space. There are two closets with hangers. You can use our washer, dryer and iron/board. You can also use our fenced in backyard, kitchen, and bathroom. Our bathroom is in a shared space so please let us know when you'd like to use the shower so we can provide privacy. Our furnace is in the basement and runs during the night. It may be too loud for people who are sensitive to noise. Our two dogs will not be in the guest space but they will be upstairs and may run around/bark. If they are bothersome, you are welcome to let them outside during the day if you are in the space on a week day. They are generally quiet at night. No smoking in the house, but you may smoke in the backyard. Please also see our additional house rules.

This is a great place to stay if you have dogs! There's a nice backyard, comfy bed and sitting room. Megan was prompt with her responses, very friendly and the price is great.

Megan and her husband were very nice and accommodating. I was driving across the country with all of my stuff along I-80 so it was nice that they had a garage. Backyard is big.

I stayed with Megan for about a month when I needed a place to stay as I wrapped up my internship. I had never used Airbnb before, so I was not entirely sure how it would go. I had a great experience! Megan was very nice and welcoming, and I had a private space in the basement with a room and another room that served as a bit of a living room. Megan and her husband invited me to watch GOT some weekends and were very friendly. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone for a short or extended stay and I would visit again!

It's a great location. Less then 3 miles to downtown and a large fenced yard for my dogs. They also have 2 dogs so my dogs had a great time playing with them.

Hello travellers! My husband and I have been in our house for over a year now. We've come to find there's more space than we need. This led us to open our home to airbnb. I've lived in Des Moines for 10 years and love to show off this beautiful town. My husband and I can show you around or let you have your privacy. We are flexible so if you have questions, please ask away :)
