We were set with snacks, coffee and water, toiletries, etc. They were very nice and flexible about when we showed up. There home was super cute and their dog is pretty cute too. Would for sure stay with them again. I felt safe and they were super friendly!!

  • Ms.Donna house is really like living in paradise..!! Excellent I mean excellent service

    Travis2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Although we only stayed overnight Donna was a very friendly host and the accommodations were clean and very comfortable. Donna also gave us some good advice on navigating around Des Moines.

    David2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Donna's home is beautiful and so cozy. I really felt like she was a mom I didn't know I had until now! The downstairs area was perfect and complete with amenities I would not have expected anywhere else: towels and toiletries, tons of snacks, homemade cinnamon rolls, orange and apple juice, water, tea, coffee etc. The refreshments were excellent. The space itself was great, lots of character. I only spend the night there to sleep but I imagine had I stayed a few days I could really see myself never wanting to leave! The bed was a bit firm but not uncomfortable to my surprise. Bedding was fresh and there were plenty plugs to for devices. Again, lots of things were in the space that would make an extended stay a breeze. Donna herself is a awesome human being and so so sweet. We had a great conversation the night I came in and when I left. She was also helpful in lending me her snow brush. Did not get a ton of time with Alan but he seems like a nice guy. And their dog is cute fluffy thing, very friendly. Overall, I highly recommend this stay as you will feel right at home.

    Just 2 miles from the Iowa State Fairgrounds and easy Freeway access puts you less than 10 minutes drive to the East Village, 10 to Downtown and roughly 25 minutes to the Des Moines Airport. Check in Sundays from 6:00 PM - 12 AM. Check in all other days 7:00 PM to 12:00 AM. NO early check-ins. Checkout is 10:00 AM. Late checkouts may be possible at $12 per hour late. Guests must make late checkout arrangements before booking. Please ask questions before booking. Thank you!
    The house is a ranch with 3 steps into the house. No hauling luggage to a second floor or basement! No pets live on this property. Your room includes a queen-sized bed, a chair and a half for relaxing, a small chair and desk, hair dryer and basic toiletry supplies. You have shared use of the bathroom, refrigerator, kitchen, the backyard pergola sitting area (May-Oct), and the dining room. There is coffee or tea you can brew in the morning. I provide a wi-fi password when you arrive. The space is shared with me, a professional city employee. Parking is available on the street for free. The neighborhood and street traffic is busy but that is to be expected in town. The Freeway is far enough away to be barely heard. The occasional firetruck or ambulance does go by. If you need total silence to sleep, this property may not suit you. If you can tolerate background noise then you will be fine. I have lived here for years and sleep soundly.
    This is a blue-collar neighborhood, not suburbia or downtown, yet it takes just minutes to drive to attractions and amenities associated with those places. It's a simple life that comes with a simple price-tag. =)
  • Michelle's place had everything I needed for my stay in Des Moines. Close to the interstate and in a nice neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again.

    Jeff2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Being from the farm, our home has special farm decor along with a contemporary feel. The full basement has a private entrance, with private bathroom, frig, microwave, and coffeemaker. We are located less than 10 minutes from Adventureland, Prairie Meadows and Ankeny. Just a few more minutes and you can reach Iowa State Fair, East Village and downtown Des Moines. Bondurant is a small town with a growing suburban feel. We are a couple blocks off Highway 65; minutes from Interstate 80.
    The Farmosa is small but very comfortable, cozy and clean. The space is equipped with your own small frig, microwave, coffee maker, complimentary coffee and creamer, bathroom, outdoor patio and private entrance. The queen size bed is a sofa pull out with a memory foam mattress. There is also a love seat that pulls out to a twin size bed, suitable for a child. There is a rocker, recliner, and chaise for you to relax in as well.
    Farmosa is located in a newer development in Bondurant - with a small town feel. There are a few downtown restaurants and a coffee shop in Bondurant, but countless options in Altoona and Ankeny.
  • Extremely clean, cozy and very comfortable bed! I would have loved to stay longer!

    Elizebeth2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • I never used Airbnb before so I didn't know what to expect. The room was like a giant hotel room that felt like home. I can't say much more because it exceeded my expectations and Tracy was a message away with any question I had. I would recommend the place to anyone.

    Welcome! My home is in the perfect location just minutes from Downtown/East Village, blocks from Des Moines' biggest park, river and trail system. The whole house has been beautifully renovated. I have two spacious, private guest rooms that I book independently. Modern amenities, including a large flatscreen with Roku, Amazon Echo, Nest, high speed wifi and lots more. Tons of space outside featuring a fenced-in back yard and patio, and a large porch with ample natural light and relaxing sunroom.
    This guest room has a new ultra comfortable mattress and new comfy bedding. It also features two large windows for natural light as well as a full length mirror in the room. Also included is a desk, closet space with hangers, iron, ironing board, outlets. The house includes a new HVAC system that will keep you as cool or warm as you'd like.
    I live in the Historic Union Park Neighborhood just northeast of downtown. The perfect location in a quiet neighborhood but just minutes away from the best places of Des Moines.
  • Great place to stay. Nice & quiet. All the things you need to feel at home when you are away.

    Rachel2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • I flew into Des Moines to do some canvassing before the caucuses, and Tanner's place was a quiet, convenient, affordable place to rest my head after long hours walking around the Beaverdale neighborhood. Tanner was home when I checked in, and he gave me a quick tour of the house. Tanner is super nice and welcoming, I felt right at home. Also, the bed was very comfortable. I'd stay at Tanner's again, for sure.

    Andrew2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    A private bedroom with full size bed that can sleep up to two. Private bathroom next to the bedroom. Free to use the kitchen and utensils, however I ask that you remember this is a shared space and not make the kitchen your primary hangout. You would be sharing the space with me and my dog, a two year old black lab mix.

  • Very clean and quiet place with kitchen and laundry facilities located about 1.5 miles from I-35 with ample shopping and restaurants 1.5 miles the other way on SE 14th St. Justin is very thoughtful and attentive, and he is a master of brief and friendly conversations. His dog, Finn, is very friendly and quiet and spends almost all of the time locked in Justin’s room. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with Finn for 5 minutes 3 times during my 4 day stay, and I was trying to make opportunities to play with the dog. It was a delightful experience, and I plan to stay with Justin every time I visit Des Moines.

It was close to the Drake campus and there was some college traffic late at night, but overall not too bad noise-wise. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. I had no problems during my stay, and would definitely stay here again. Great value and a very nice place to stay.

    Treat yourself to a memorable evening in this cozy studio loft. It'll be tempting to spend the day in bed, but don't forget to venture out and enjoy all that downtown Des Moines has to offer all within 1 - 2 miles from the house. Perfect for couples or solo travelers, this loft includes a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, a smart TV, a comfy leather sofa, a full bath, and of course, a pillow-top king bed you won't want to leave.
    This is one of my family's most recent renovations. Due to the great location near downtown, we wanted to open it up to welcome guests to the city! When we were planning the renovations, my husband suggested putting two bedrooms in the unfinished attic space, but I had my heart set creating a romantic, minimalist guest suite. We're both glad I was able to persuade him to go that route. Climb an old set of stairs (this house was built in the 1890's) to be welcomed by tall ceilings, ambient lighting and beautiful furnishings. Light a few candles, chill a bottle a wine in the fridge, and cozy up to the sofa to relax and read my welcome guide giving you some of my favorite recommendations for a nice evening. Wake up with a warm cup of coffee or tea and maybe even watch a movie in bed. The openness of the space creates a mood for enjoying the day at a leisurely pace. The space is best suited for those looking for 1-3 nights as there is limited space in the dresser for clothes and the kitchenette is good for heating leftovers or ready-made basic meals, but is not equipped for meal prep. I do have disposable silverware, plates, cups, and bowls available in the cabinets.
    This diverse neighborhood is lively with people, sometimes even late at the night. Some people may be put off by this, while others may love this location. All the perks of Downtown Des Moines are a quick drive, Lyft, or bus ride away. You could even walk if you enjoy longer walks (I sure do when visiting other cities). 1 - 2 miles to everything downtown including the Downtown Farmers Market, Des Moines Civic Center, Wells Fargo Arena, East Village shops, the Pappajohn Sculpture Park and more! Be sure to check out the Des Moines Social Club, have a drink on Court Ave, and stroll the pedestrian bridge and Asian Gardens along the river. Nearby local restaurants worth checking out: 2901 6th Ave El Salvador Del Mundo - delicious Salvadorean restaurant Pho 515 - Pho restaurant within the C Fresh Market, an amazing international food grocer, specializing in SE Asian ingredients. Within walking distance of the property and definitely worth a visit to this local favorite. Tacos Marianna's - a personal favorite hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants. $1 tacos on Thursdays.
  • The loft was cozy and much roomier than the picture shows. We had so much space. The bathroom is large as well. Rachel provided everything we needed, including disposable plates/utensils. I really liked being able to park in the driveway right by our private entrance. The location was really close to downtown and everywhere we needed to go. I will be staying here again the next time we visit Des Moines.

  • The bed is amazing. Its so comfortable and huge. Loved the place. Definitely recommend it.

    Tracey2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great little loft near downtown. Space is roomy, bed is wonderful, $7 Uber to East Village where we saw a concert. You won't be disappointed.

  • You can expect a clean spacious area that’s warm and comfortable.

    Riley2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cute, clean, and cozy space. This space is larger than what you see in the photos (my fiance is 6'7'' and fit!). Rachel is a great communicator and makes it a point to ensure you have everything you need. This is a hidden gem and we will be back!

    Hannah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a pretty cool place. Love the wood floor. Great value which is my primary reason for using BNB.

    Lee2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The left was beautiful and peaceful. It was the perfect place to stay for our little getaway. Location was great we were very close to everything. Highly recommend!

    Tanya2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel's place was exactly what we needed for a weekend convention. It is a clean, cozy yet spacious place to retreat to after a long day of meetings and small talk! We asked in advance for an ironing board and iron, and she graciously had it waiting there for us when we arrived. You can tell that it was recently renovated, and I *love* the wooden floors- they look like they're original. Rachel describes it as an old house, which for me means drafty, but that was not the case at all, it was all warm and snug for our February stay. Thank you, Rachel for a wonderful little retreat! Sooooo much better than a hotel stay!

    Drive into the attached garage where you will find your very private entrance to a quiet, peaceful, and restful living. Located 1 mile from the downtown area on a street loaded with large Oak and Walnut trees. A huge back yard in which to stroll or barbecue.
    You are welcome to play Croquet, use the hammock, pick flowers in the garden, or use any of the yard furniture to just relax. I have updated the apartment with a private deck that over looks the backyards of the south side. You may also use the fire pit located way in the back. Please let me know if you want to do this and I will set it up for you
    This area of town has been called "Little Italy' for decades. My neighbors have told me that boot legging went on in this area during Prohibition. The police would drive into the area looking for bootleggers and the bootleggers would escape by using the alleys that were here.
  • Comfortable place to sleep and work with our dog while travelling through.

    Brooke2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great host. Great stay. Very nice.

    Daniel2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Greg has a nice setup. He greeted me when I arrived. I didn't get a chance to enjoy place as much as I would have liked. It was a quick overnight. But it's in a good location, the deck would be great to enjoy during the day. It's homey.

    David2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent option when staying in Des Moines. Just south of downtown and budget friendly. This is our 2nd time staying here. Fresh flowers in the rental, you get to park in the garage, dog friendly, quiet neighborhood, and great water pressure! We’ll likely book again when we come to town.

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodations are spectacular! Garage parking indeed a plus. Bed was super comfy. Great stay - especially if you are needing for more than a day or two with all kitchen and bath supplies provided. Greg is definitely a super host and highly recommend his property. I booked Greg’s property for my sister-in-law, who relocated to DSM for a new job. The 2 weeks in Little Italy allowed time for her to be near her work & secure long- term housing.

    Gaylene2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Greg was very nice and helpful. He hosted my 4 dogs plus my small human family. He had food recommendations and also helped us find a hiking trail. The place was very clean and tidy. Check in time was very flexible.

    Charity2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Greg and his place were fantastic! Speedy with communication before and after booking, friendly and hospitable when we arrived with tips for dining and maps handy. Garage parking with direct access was nice to have. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch, and the apartment had everything needed for us to be comfortable. Slept very well on the king size bed. The outdoor space was nice and will surely be amazing in the summer. We will DEFINITELY be booking Greg’s Little Italy Apartment again!

    Jim2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • very clean place in a new building that is close to a lot of good bars and food. a spacious apartment with a comfortable bed, but bring your own pillows for more comfort! I was happy to see a filtered water pitcher was provided to use for the tap water because i’m very picky about the water I drink! the check in was rather difficult and confusing due to host using both air bnb and texts to send different information regarding check in tips and I ended up having to call in to a number to get the lock box code after texting the host multiple times an hour before arrival to get the information. the host didn’t even respond back to me until the next day. overall, it was a great stay and I would stay again, I would just make sure I have all the information needed before arrival to make my check in experience much easier.

    Erika2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Welcome Home! New and beautifully decorated right off I-35; very easy access for all you travelers. INCLUDES GARAGE PARKING WITH YOUR OWN GARAGE OPENER! I live at the end of the street in a very quiet neighborhood. Restaurants, shopping, and movies just minutes away. Downtown DSM is only 10 minutes and Ames is 20 minutes. There's walking and bicycle paths very close. If you're looking for a rental car, the DSM Airport is 20 minutes. Uber is also popular. I can't wait to meet you! Safe travels!
    This is a brand new home. As much as I want you to respect my home, I want you to feel comfortable and feel at home here, too.

I provide plush towels, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner, makeup remover and other toiletries. You also have a lock on your bedroom door.
    This is a very quiet neighborhood and I'm at the end of a cul-de-sac, so you virtually hear nothing, unless you're sitting out on the back patio. Your bedroom is in front of the house, so it's always quiet. If you go out of my place and take a left on SE Delaware Ave. you'll find all kinds of shopping and restaurants. Des Moines is only 10 minutes away and there's a lot of cultural things to do there. If you need any suggestions, I would love to help.

  • Tom's place was wonderful. We had our whole family there for graduation with 2 young kids and a baby still in a crib. It was safe for kids (fun playground for them in the backyard as well) and had plenty of room for adults to spread out. They were wonderful hosts! Very accommodating and went above and beyond to help!

    John2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a family or group of friends to stay while in town. The hosts were great and the space was hip and welcoming. The only downside, and I have to look deep, is if you're traveling with as many people as I do, sleeping arrangements may get tight. The hosts were more than accommodating, even offering use of the upstairs kitchen and bathroom to help combat the bathroom lines upon every arrival and with the meals that, on one stove, presented a challenge. We loved our stay.

    Jessy2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts!

    Ashley2017-09-24T00:00:00Z

    Due to COVID we have stopped autobooking at this building. Please send an inquiry as we have other potentially options depending on the health situation at the time. Hi! Welcome fellow vacationer couples, business travelers, staycationers, monkeys who have learned to use the internet, and alien researchers who have discovered the Earth Internet! I'm biased, but I think the place is great.
    You will be less than a 5 minute walk from -Hy-Vee (Grocery store) -Fong's Pizza (late night pizza place) -Several Bars -Walgreens Inside of the condo building there's a sushi place and a diner. If you don't want to go out in the cold to get food, you do not have to. Sweet! Furthermore, you can use my Netflix account! The TV has a roku attached to it and it's awesome. The kitchen is fully stocked with silverware and appliances. Salt, pepper, and some random ingredients are available for your stay. PARKING IS PROVIDED WITH THIS UNIT! We can arrange a parking spot at an adjacent garage. Full disclosure - access to this lot adds a couple of steps to check-in. You are going to need to find street parking or park at the local Hy-Vee first to gain access to the unit and get the garage opener. Some people are annoyed by these extra steps but hey - it’s free parking :)
    It's pretty much the best area in Des Moines. The building is connected to the skywalk, a series of indoor hallways that link a bunch of downtown buildings. The neighborhood is pretty quiet, but this condo is practically above 2 bars. It is a great location to retire after a night out in downtown.
  • Very well cleaned and spacious. Lots of amenities (elevator, garage, fridge/freezer, laundry room, wifi/netflix). Beautiful view and loft!

    Kaitlyn2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The whole place was so clean! Checking in was simple enough and the location is perfect for a night in Des Moines. Would book again.

    Lovely Victorian home in Historic district.
    Quiet and well appointed . The kitchen is new and clean. The 4 common area rooms gives you a real feeling of home. The bedrooms are accessed by a vintage but sturdy yet steep staircase.
    24 years and counting, I have watched the urban reboot of the hip downtown scene. Easy interstate, and center city access. Quiet yet historic.
  • Had a great stay!

    Justus2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Welcome! My home is in the perfect location just minutes from Downtown/East Village, blocks from Des Moines' biggest park, river and trail system. The whole house has been beautifully renovated. I have two spacious, private guest rooms that I book independently. Modern amenities, including a large flatscreen with Roku, Amazon Echo, Nest, high speed wifi and lots more. Tons of space outside featuring a fenced-in back yard and patio, and a large porch with ample natural light and relaxing sunroom.
    This guest room has a new ultra comfortable mattress and new comfy bedding. It also features two large windows for natural light as well as a full length mirror in the room. Also included is a desk, closet space with hangers, iron, ironing board, outlets. The house includes a new HVAC system that will keep you as cool or warm as you'd like.
    I live in the Historic Union Park Neighborhood just northeast of downtown. A great location and safe neighborhood.
  • Tanner's place was very clean and put together! Close to downtown and perfect for our stay!

    Ashley2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • if you get a chance to stay at Tanner's take it. Tanner really is a super-host

    Marcell2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tanner’s home exceeded my expectations. The entire home was extremely clean and comfortable, and there was everything I needed for a wonderful stay. There were thoughtful touches throughout the home, like a bowl of chocolates in the kitchen and an extra blanket on the bed. The free parking was also a big plus, and it was nice being able to use the kitchen and living room as well. It really seemed like Tanner had thought of everything a guest might need. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with Airbnb, and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Des Moines.

    Megan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • This was my third time staying at Tanner's place. Not a whole lot has changed :) It is an older house in a quiet neighborhood on the east side of Des Moines just south of Grandview University. One floor with two guest bedrooms and a shared bath. Nicely decorated and very quiet. I was able to relax in the common areas in my down-time. I was also able to prepare a couple of dishes to take to a family dinner over the weekend. I will definitely be going back.

    Close to Altoona, Prairie Meadows and the new Des Moines Outlet Malls.
    This is a no frills home. Just the basics with an convenient location. If your looking for comfortable beds and basic creature comforts, this is for you. This is an older house but has been well taken care of. I stay here when I come back and forth from Florida to Iowa. No pets allowed. There is also an outside area with seating and pool. The pool is open and heated seasonal. Big Flat screen TV’s in bedroom one and living room with cable. Jetted tub and separate shower. Minutes from Prairie Meadows, Bass Pro, and new outlet mall. This is a perfect short or long term house centrally located. Perfect for people coming to town for work or pleasure. To be completely honest with people, it is an older house that is in front of a mobile home park. We own several properties in Iowa and use this property once every 45-60 days when we come to town. We set this property up like a hotel but it’s definitely not a 5 star property. I listed this property to help people out and the price reflects the property. I live in Florida and have no problems staying here or bringing my family to stay. It is quite and safe. There are horses you can see from the living room. Absolutely NO PARTIES or LARGE GET TOGETHERS!! I have a property manager who lives close by and if caught having a party you will be asked to leave and reported to Airbnb! 6 person Maximum **The pool will close on August 29th****
    Centrally located. No frills, just basic home comforts. Large Heated swimming pool! The house sits in front of a mobile home park. There is an on-site maintenance guy who lives close by.
  • We love staying at the Broadway house. Bill is fast and helpful with communication. Check in is a breeze, there's tons of space to spread out, and the jacuzzi is worth the time to fill up. It was a perfect getaway with everything we needed and then some. We will definitely be back!

    Lindsey2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
