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.
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.

Other things to note
We have two dogs that are like our children, so if you don't like dogs this may not be the best place for you :)
We have two dogs so make sure you're not allergic. They do bark, but not at night while we are sleeping.
We can hang out with guests in the evenings or weekends if wanted.
You will have a private room in the basement with a tv and mini fridge.
We only have 1 bathroom in our upstairs that you may use, but it will be a shared space. We ask you to take showers between 8am-8pm or let us know ahead of time when you plan to use the shower so we can give you privacy. You may use our washer and dryer but only between 8am-8pm. We live in a quiet neighborhood so we ask for no loud noises after 10pm.
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 :)
