Places to stay in Polk City
The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood. The layout is a four level split the bedroom is on the top floor. Kitchen living room other spaces can be used as needed and negotiated. I work part-time so I'll be in and out of the house but you will have access to the house with the key for your convenience.
The bedroom has a closet and a dresser. Bathroom is on the same floor does include shower or jacuzzi tub if you wish to make use of it. Bathroom door also has a lock on it.
The neighborhood is residential but there is a Walgreens within a mile. A shopping center with movie theater within 2 miles. There's a grocery store within 2 mi. It's a nice area to take a walk weather permitting.
  • Great place to stay and a wonderful host!

  • Joel is the man you can count on. He offered his whole world to me & saved my life. It was freezing cold & he gave me everything I needed at the time. A selfless man & a great host. Thank you again Joel.

  • What a great experience. I moved to Des Moines on a whim and needed a place to stay for a month. Joel's place could not have been a better landing spot. Joel is a a great host, a talented guy, a good conversationalist when you're in the mood to talk, and a really pleasant housemate. I highly recommend the room at Joel's for anyone staying long term and for anyone just passing through. Joel you rock, thanks again!

    Drew2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Joel is an extremely gracious and helpful host! My room was clean and comfortable, and I even got to wake up to a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning. I would absolutely stay here again if I find myself back in the area!

    Upscale area within walking distance of numerous trails, Bike paths, parks and ponds. This one bedroom space is perfect for one or two people looking for a relaxing space to call home for the evening. The bathroom is right next to the bedroom. I have it stocked with plush towels, and any soaps, shampoos, or amenities you may have forgotten or decided not to pack! Within minutes, you can drive to major shopping and metropolitan areas with both boutique and chain retail stores.
    Upon Entering the front door with your own code, the room to your left is yours from check-in to check-out, also with the same code. The rest of the main floor is yours to share with me. It's just me and I work a lot but if we are around my boxer dog Trooper would love some pets and I always enjoy good company and conversation, otherwise we will stay out of your way and let you enjoy your stay. Trying to eat healthy on the go? - I'd be happy to pick up some meal prep from any of the local meal prep delivery services in our area such as Get Fit Grill (my favorite and local recommendation) - Just let me know and I will have your room fridge stocked with whatever you need, complimentary of course. There are also washer/dryer for use as well on the main floor with different types of detergents. If you have a special request, let me know and I'll pick it up. I honestly will spare no expense I just want you to have a nice stay and choose me over everyone else. :)
    Our neighborhood is a newer development, but there are TONS of exciting upcoming additions to our area such as an entertainment district (Think Power and Light District in Kansas City) within a few miles. The newest IMAX theatre is within walking distance and has dine in options available as well as a bar and other more traditional concessions. My favorite coffee shop is right up the street called "The CoffeeSmith". I recommend a Pablo Honey, or whatever they call that thing where they sprinkle cinnamon on top and torch it. Super delicious.
  • Joey was a great host! The place was just as advertised

    Ally2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

A great place that has all the amenities you will need and also Joe has a great personality and he's open to helping you make your stay comfortable all the time. And his dog trooper is also great. Am definitely staying here anytime I visit Des Moines

    A homey, lower-level walk out apartment located in a safe, quiet neighborhood. The owners live in the upper level. Our scenic backyard borders the walking/bike trails along North Walnut Creek. We have easy access to the Interstate and I-235. We are just minutes away from shops, malls and restaurants. Our kitchen is furnished so that you can prepare your own meals. After hosts greet you at their front door, they will escort you around to your own secure, private entrance. : )
    The apt. has about 500 square feet of living space.
    Family neighborhood--quiet street with friendly neighbors. We are close to restaurants, shopping, etc.

  • I really enjoyed staying with Lucy and Rob. They were both there to greet and show me around. Their place was wonderful. It had everything needed for a more than comfortable stay. The location has a nice walking path right outside of the property. The bed and furnishings were excellent. Plenty there to prepare meals with oils, seasonings, etc. Lucy provided great snacks too! I would stay there again. As a matter of fact I have booked again for when I pass thru Des Moines on my return home. Thanks Rob and Lucy!

    Craig2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • Sparkling clean is an understatement! This place is really great with all the amenities to have a nice stay! The bed is perfect! Seriously the cleanest air-B&B we have ever stayed at! The host are extremely nice and friendly! They are super responsive to anything you need! The kitchen is set up to do whatever you need. The sitting area is very comfortable! I seriously can’t say enough nice things about this place! Couple FYIs: there is a nearby Walmart, a “Anytime Fitness” is right around the corner, and it is very close to the highway for convenience! If in town, stay here! We’ll be back when passing thru! Enjoy! PS-did we mention that the place was sparkling clean, with all the comforts!

    6 minutes to Historic Valley Junction, 7 minutes Downtown, and 10 minutes to Jordan Creek Town Center, you'll love the easy access to anywhere in the metro as much as you'll love this beautiful guest suite we've prepared for you. Your private entrance awaits you from the patio of our home. You'll want to stay in bed all day in the gorgeous king size bed, enjoy a long soak in the soaking tub, and watch a movie on the smart TV. Mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker and teas too!
    My husband and I renovate distressed homes in the Des Moines area. In 2017, I got a text from him "There's a brick house for sale on 63rd St, corner lot, lots of nice walnut trees, 3 car garage. It's in such bad shape we aren't even allowed inside to view it. Sounds fun, huh?" We bought it in 2017, gutted it, modernized the interior while keeping some of the wonderful original features like a big brick fireplace and hardwood floors. We moved in early 2018. Summer of 2019, we broke ground on an extension of the house that would become the two guest suites. We are so excited to welcome guests to our home. We have a large concrete patio which is a common space for family, friends, and guests. If you're feeling social, we hope to see you out there.
    It's a lovely, quiet neighborhood with mature trees. Being just a moment away from the interstate, your drive to anywhere in the metro is quick and convenient. Down the street is an entrance into Des Moines' extensive trail system, so you are a few minutes walk from relaxing trails and parks. The house is located at a beautiful crossroad of quiet residential and urban convenience.
  • Rachel's home was lovely and clean and beautiful. our room was spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable!

    Jessica2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    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. You have your own private bedroom with a 40" flat screen TV and cable, along with a private bathroom with a bathtub and shower. 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.

Tons of space outside featuring a fenced-in back yard and patio, and a large porch with ample natural light and relaxing sunroom.

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 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.

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.

  • If you are visiting Drake University, this is the perfect place to stay. Plenty of room, great price, only a few blocks from campus, safe neighborhood and a kitchen! Awesome.

    Mary Lynne2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The space was wonderful for our quick weekend stay! Painless processes with check in/out and they even left us a bottle of wine as a welcome gift! Would definitely stay here again if I needed a place in Des Moines.

    Andrew2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A great getaway near Drake!

  • Jamie's place is a quiet, tastefully decorated, and restful place to stay. Also, Jamie was wonderfully flexible and communicated exceptionally well regarding our arrival. We enjoyed the privacy of the space, the homey porch, and location. We would definitely return.

    Suzanne2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jamie’s little cottage was so cozy and comfortable. Easy self-check-in, clean, well-appointed, with a wonderfully comfortable bed. Jamie even brought me a humidifier to use, because of the dry winter air! The only minor glitch I experienced was the WiFi kept dropping out and my AT&T cell phone had poor reception, so if that’s important to your stay, you might experience similar issues. But Jamie’s warmth and hospitality are unmatched!! Would def stay here again <3

    Charlsey2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortiable bed. Beautiful room. And an outstanding host!

    Katie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated bedroom and bath. Located in a very cool old Des Moines neighborhood. Host was very accommodating too!

    Kent2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jamie’s place is perfect for one night- like myself- or a long stay. Although construction work is going on- no hindrance to sleeping- Jamie was excellent with filling in with details and pictures of where to park and where to go to exactly. The room itself is quaint. It has cute decor but has little bits of remedies you get from home that you could only hope for elsewhere. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, razors, coffee (real keurig machine) w/ creamers, sugar, cups. Amazon fire stick in TV with Netflix. The bed was super comfortable, water pressure in shower was great and the room was very clean (btw- no cleaning fee). I don’t usually write reviews but because I really did appreciate the homeyness of the room and the unexpected amenities, I want others to know and hopefully have a good stay, that is also less expensive then a hotel in the area. So if I had to say one thing on a “negative” side of things, it would be that the door sticks when going in and coming out which is a bit of a pain but honestly that is all Thanks for the stay!!

    Steve2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jamie’s guesthouse was very clean, and her communication was excellent. I will be staying again!

    Brandi2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Jamie was one of the best experiences I had staying at an Airbnb. Her place is adorable and it was incredibly clean! The personal touches with all the Iowa decor made me feel very at home! I can’t gush more about the hospitality. Jamie was so amazing and made me feel at home instantly! I’d,for sure, come back and stay here. Do yourself a favor and stay here, Jamie is the BEST!

    Monica2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

    My home is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood of Ankeny with a 16 minute drive to downtown Des Moines and Wells Fargo Arena. The highlight of my home is the newly remodeled bedrooms and bathroom, which includes a walk-in tiled shower. There are queen beds in each bedroom and I have no neighbors on the bedroom side of my home, for a quiet night's sleep. The living room has a 60" TV with a PlayStation 4 for the kids. I have high-speed cable internet and TV.
    You're going to love the walk-in tiled shower. I took the water regulator out of the shower head, so you really do get soaked. Both bedrooms have new carpet with fresh paint. The master bedroom has a remote controlled ceiling fan and tv. I do a thorough cleaning of my house before every new guest.
    It's a great neighborhood with a park one block away. I have no neighbors adjacent to the bedroom side of the house so you will have a quiet night's sleep.

    Great loft bedroom in a 50's cottage located in the classic neighborhood of Beaverdale.

    Beaverdale is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Des Moines. The house is walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, and some small boutiques. Downtown Des Moines is a short drive away, as is a mall and grocery store.
  • Becca is a great host. The place is very charming and close to plenty of good eateries. The place is very clean, quiet and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in town.

    ali2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Becca & Salem effortlessly made a last minute booking into a comfortably peaceful stay. Economically and aesthetically unmatched. Everything you’d need from food, clothes, social activities & nightlife within walking distance. The perfect place.

    Jordan2020-02-08T00:00:00Z

    Delaney2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This space was wonderful. Becca was a great host and communicated well. I enjoyed my mornings with Salem, the wonderfully-friendly feline. Becca had snacks and coffee ready for me when I got there. The neighborhood is great and has some wonderful haunts. I recommend The Dam Bar in Beaverton.

    Anna2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Check-in was easy; location is close to places to pick up light groceries. A pub and a coffeeshop are a few blocks down. The address is on the main street, but entryway is on the side street. I had a great night's sleep on the bed, with a floor heater to keep the upstairs room warm. I would definitely stay again, if I were visiting Des Moines again!

    Monique2019-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Kelli2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Do not pass by this place if you are into mid-century modern style. This 1-bedroom place is perfect for a couple looking to enjoy a weekend in Des Moines, IA AND step back in time. The location is also great. We took Uber rides to Waukee and the Ingersol area, which were reasonable, and we enjoyed the Waveland Cafe. Jeff and Ingrid's place was one of the best Air BnB's we've stayed at. Thank you!

    Jeremy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is PERFECT for the Baby Boomer!! You feel like you’ve walked back into your childhood home!! Everything is EXACTLY as it says & appears!! If you enjoy a medium firm bed, your going to have one of your best nights sleep! The down comforter is so cozy on the bed!! We have already asked to rebook for a future trip. As a person who has an eye for cleanliness, IMPECCABLE!! Jeff & Ingrid are EXCELLENT HOSTS. Communication was top notch! Driveway & sidewalks were shoveled & salted! CAREFUL going in& out of driveway, very steep!! Easy to see that Jeff & Ingrid truly care about their property & want their guests to have a wonderful experience!!

    Stacy Lynn2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a lovely, stylish small bungalow where we felt totally at home -- sat around in the evenings after busy days in the great living room, made breakfast every morning, did laundry. Many cute little design touches. Great and instant communications about how to get in and the rest. It's in a very quiet residential neighbourhood -- across from a school and a church -- where the nearest coffee shops are at least a 15-minute walk, so be aware of that. But super-quick (10 minutes) to drive to the centre of town or to the great restaurants on Ingersoll or the fun ones on Forest near Drake University.

    Frances2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful! Exactly how described. Fantastic thought-through checking and checkout process that takes a minute. I’d stay here again anytime.

    Julius2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff and Ingrid's place was great! It was cozy and very stylish. A great place to stay if you're going to Des Moines. The check out time was a little early but they seemed flexible about it and we were able to extend it a bit. Do be aware that the sofa bed is a futon and not a pullout mattress. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay!

    Marc2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff and Ingrid’s place was exactly as advertised. We enjoyed our stay and everything was minutes away when we ventured out into the local area. Would recommend to a friend instantly.

    Nicholas2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay. The place was very unique and comfortable. I would highly recommend this Airbnb! I would stay again next time I'm in Des Moines if it's available

    Several restaurants and shops close by, walking distance on a nice day. Unexpectedly good sushi less than a mile away. Less than 5 miles from downtown.
  • Small and cozy; perfect for a short stay. This house had all the amenities you could need and was in a great location. The hospitality was wonderful, thanks for a great 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.
  • 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

  • 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!

    Shari2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • Megan was a gracious host. Her home was very clean, beautiful, and the decor is welcoming. The description of her home is accurate. She communicated clearly and response time was excellent. I look forward to staying in her home when I visit Des Moines in the future. Thank you Megan!

    Sussie2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This house is absolutely beautiful and has such a classy feel with all of the artwork and little touches throughout. Very nice neighborhood. Driveway parking as well as on street parking if needed. Very comfortable beds and noise machine in master made for such a relaxing sleep. The absolutely best part of our stay was the hot tub! Great outdoor space with plenty of privacy. We hung out in the hot tub for almost 2 hours with the outdoor temps around 25 degrees and it felt amazing. Will definitely plan on staying again when we have another night in the area.

  • Cute place! Easy check-in, very comfortable. Fast communication. If you have any mobility issues, this is not for you! The stairs are VERY steep - my dog wouldn't climb them. But she loved the backyard.

    Maggie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very quick communication! Such a lovely space- whoever decorated is my new favorite person. Plenty of comfort and exactly as described. The steps are a bit steep, so just know that if you have a person with bad knees with you but they have a queen size air mattress downstairs which should help that entirely! LOVED IT and will be back

    Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) Hey, if you have to be in the Midwest in the winter, this is a good place to stay cozy! Lots of color and fun decor. Short drive to Drake and DMU: One full bed, one single day bed, private bathroom, wifi, smart TV with Netflix, and Hulu, cozy electric fireplace, exclusive access to laundry room and screened porch, compact fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, wine, quirky charm, your own entrance.
    Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) Lots of color and fun decor. My house was built in 1927, on land owned by a single woman: rare back then! Only five owners since then. Beaverdale was considered a Des Moines suburb when the neighborhood was built up, and was notable for the 2 story and story and a half brick Tudor-inspired houses. This space is great for friends travelling together, solo folks travelling for business, couples having a fun weekend, mom, dad, and kid.... well, you get the idea! :)
    Beaverdale was at one point a far northwest suburb of Des Moines, and is known for the 1 and 1/2 and two story brick homes known locally as "Beaverdale bricks." One of the most popular BBQ spots in Des Moines, The Flying Mango, is a two block walk from the house (Try the shrimp and grits), and downtown Beaverdale, with shops and restaurants, is two blocks the other direction.
  • This place was Excellent for our needs. Our host had everything we needed. She had our back there. Place was very clean. This was our second time there. Thanks again.

    Ronald2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • We didn’t actually stay at Jennie’s place as we got caught in a snow storm in northern Iowa and couldn’t make it that evening. However, my limited experience with Jennie was wonderful. She was quick to respond to communication and was more than fair with us regarding the booking. She was very kind and understanding about the situation. Even though i didn’t stay here, I would recommend booking with Jennie.

    Jenny2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • We were in town from Brooklyn to canvas for our main man, Bernard Sanders, and needed a place to sleep. Jennie's en suite was an ideal place for our visit. It was a quick trip to where we needed to be. The bed was super comfortable, ideal for catching up on rest after eight-hour long canvassing shifts where we walked upward of eight miles! Jennie also had a really well-stocked bathroom: toothpaste, aleve, allergy medicine, etc (in my experience, many hosts overlook these little details). The space was also very clean, and my partner, who is allergic to cats, didn't suffer any symptoms while there. Finally, Jennie was really friendly and responsive, and her three cats were so cute! In all, a great place to spend a couple of days.

    Landry2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jennie is a great hostess. Communication was top notch, place was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Convenient location, centrally located and easy to get anywhere in the metro.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Jeff & Ingrid's place. It is clean, thoughtfully appointed and a great place to lay your head at the end of a long day. The location can't be beat, and Jeff made sure to get the walkways and driveway cleared of snow every day (since it was a very snowy few days in Des Moines). We couldn't be happier about our stay, and would recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Des Moines.

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.

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.

Although we did not travel with small children, there was a crib, high chairs, a few toys...etc. for a young family. The kitchen was well equipped for all of our cooking and baking needs. It was quiet, we never heard the neighbors. Very clean unit. Communication with Jennifer was quick and excellent. We hope to be repeat patrons!
