This cheerful home that’s settled on a quiet street, is the perfect location for your trip to Des Moines. Your home away from home is centrally located to Downtown and the East Village, the Western Suburbs and Jordan Creek Mall, and Drake University. It features three very comfortable queen-size beds, Satellite TV in the Living room and both bedrooms, wireless internet, a full kitchen, a covered patio overlooking the private back yard, a propane BBQ grill, and on-site laundry.
Whether you're in town for business, shopping, athletic events, politics, festivals, a concert, or even just a state tournament, you'll find that this home will meet your needs for a super clean, comfortable place to call home for a few days, a week or more, or even a longer term stay. Your new favorite Des Moines getaway sits on a quiet block just northwest of University Avenue and 63rd St. It's super convenient to the grocery store, many restaurants, Starbucks and other local coffee shops, the best bakery cafe in the midwest (if not the planet)-- La Mie, the I-235 corridor and Downtown, and is also just a 5-minute drive from Drake University. Oh, and if you've got a rainy morning or evening? Sit outside on the covered porch to read or just to sip your favorite beverage for awhile and de-stress. You'll love being surrounded by tall pine trees in the private back yard. We look forward to your booking!
  • Great communication, location and amenities! Would highly recommend.

  • Jeff & Ingrid could not have been more helpful and the home was absolutely perfect for us! Beautiful, clean, cozy, everything you’d want for a long cold weekend in Iowa!

    Catherine2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • This house has a lot of thought out into it. One of the most unique homes I have stayed in and has so many extras. I would stay here again without question.

    Sal2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I loved staying at this beautiful house. The host put so much detail into the decorations (inside the closets were even decorated. No joke) There was even a fresh rose with tea lights on the dining table for our Valentine's day dinner. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the right pans and seasonings to make a home cooked meal. This was my favorite stay so far with air bnb.

    Caitlin2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great place to stay!

    Zachary2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, welcoming and so comfortable - visited Des Moines in January. Heather made everything easy and I hope to stay there again on my next trip out.

    Samantha2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Heather's place is fabulous -- beautiful, comfortable, and a little larger than the pictures show. We were there over Christmas week and I couldn't have found a better place. Everything we needed was there waiting for us, including a stocked kitchen and game room downstairs with lots of space, a pool table, and full laundry. Heather was quick to respond and totally accommodating with our dog, also. This home is close to everything and I am looking forward to our next visit!

    Laura2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stay at Heather's house any time we are in Des Moines. The house is so comfortable and interesting. We love to see any new art or things that have changed since the last time we stayed. Heather is a wonderful host who is responsive and kind. We love staying at her house and highly recommend it!

    Christy2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • My sister, daughter & I spent an extended all-girls weekend at Heather’s. We immediately felt at home and appreciated all the special touches, including clear instructions and labeling for where to find light switches, linens, extra tissues, etc. The art and home decor are delightful and we spent the weekend calling out treasures found for the rest in the group to come look. The space was perfect for our project of sorting old family photos and sorting/shredding our parents’ household files. Location was great for food delivery and runs to Walmart and grocery store. We hope to come back someday!

    Lisa2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Second time staying at Heather's beautiful art filled home was just as great as the first time. So comfortable; very warming home that feels like home.

    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!

    Brenden2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Nasir2020-02-13T00:00:00Z

    Michael2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    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.
  • We had a short but very restful stay in Robert’s home. One of the largest spaces we have enjoyed from AirBnB it would certainly be a great extended stay location. The paved trail outside the back door is a real bonus to get some exercise and enjoy Nature along the creek.

    LeAnn2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was excellent and perfect for us to spend time with our grand baby!! The apartment was very clean. The response time was within minutes. We will be back to stay here again!

    Crystal2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Aaron2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Dan2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • The location was perfect for our stay and the home did not disappoint at all. Host were extremely welcoming and provided everything we needed and more!

    Justin2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Robert and Lucy were fantastic hosts! My party absolutely loved the place and can't recommend them enough if you're staying in the Des Moines area.

    Greg2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • 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.
  • Comfortable bed, convenient location, very inviting space.

    Corinne2020-03-20T00:00:00Z

    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.
  • Very convenient, very cozy, very nice.

  • Great place with a lot of space. The place was clean and very welcoming with some nice decorative touches. 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.

    Sebastiano2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Chelsie's spot is perfect for someone looking for a value stay in a quiet neighborhood near downtown Des Moines. The check-in is super easy but secure; the locks on the individual rooms was a nice touch. Chelsie was very kind and hospitable and a great communicator. If it gets chilly in the room during your stay there are extra blankets and a nice space heater to warm you up!

    A‎ comfortable,‎ cottage‎ retreat‎ with‎ a‎ private‎ entrance‎ in‎ the‎ heart‎ of‎ Beaverdale.‎ Nestled‎ in‎ a‎ storybook‎ home‎ in‎ the‎ hills‎ of‎ Forestdale.‎ Space has one‎ bedroom‎ with‎ queen‎ bed,‎ full‎ bath and micro-kitchen.

    A wonderful neighborhood filled with great families, activities and lots of dogs!
  • We stayed at Forestdale for a long weekend and really enjoyed it! The room is small but quaint. The outdoor patio was wonderful to sit out and read on, even when it was cold out! Jamie was friendly and accommodating every step of the way. When we had issues setting up the fire stick she came to help right away and fixed the issue. Overall it was a great experience!

    Melina2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Enclosed porch, comfy bed with lots of pillow options, along with extra blanket, decorated cutely w/Iowa art, awesome neighborhood, parking was off the road, so that was nice. The perfect weekend getaway for us! Well lit path/stairs well into the night. My husband and I both loved staying here.

    Heidi2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • 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

    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

    Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) 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 and wine on request, 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.
    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."
  • This place was GREAT!! We loved it. It has personality and it’s comfortable! It’s close to everything and very clean. We were only there for one night, but it was perfect for what we needed. Thank you Jennie!!

    Marina2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Livia2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • 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.

    Bring your own tent. Free wi-fi and electrical outlet, extension cord for outdoor use upon request. Fire pit with grill on site for you, ask about fire wood as supply may vary. Half bath nearby. Bring your own sleeping gear and coolers for food. $1 of your night's stay will go to SILT. I will refund your $1 in cash upon request -- just let me know by the time you arrive. (See silt dot org for info.)
    You can use the grill over our fire pit, outdoor seating, and the table on the patio. There is a privacy fence on one side of the yard, a tall privacy hedge on another, and a 4' high chain link fence across the back; the backyard neighbor almost always has the window coverings closed. Our house takes up most of the other side of the lawn. We ask that you respect and leave our fruit and vegetable beds and gas grill for our use. You may use the rain barrels and bucket to extinguish fires.
    Our backyard camp site is in West Des Moines: 5 minutes or less to I-235, I80/35, and the Jordan Creek area; 15 minutes to downtown Des Moines. Because our neighborhood is quiet, you may hear occasional sports announcers, fireworks, and the rare, noisy dog.
  • Great stay with Julia, she’s super smart and knows tons about the area!

    Cute little apartment south of Ingersoll Ave. Close to Ingersoll night life and about 6 minutes from Drake. Safe neighborhood, fun area.
    The apartment is in a building that was fully renovated by Archway Properties. We love the architecture of the building and how close it is to everything. Very charming apartment close to the highway.
    Walking distance from many locally owned bars and restaurants like Eatery A, Wellman's, Cheese Bar, Lucky Lotus, Harbinger, Zanzibar's Coffee Adventure, and the Bartender's Handshake. Would highly recommend all of them.

    Hayley2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Christine's place really does remind me of Hogwarts!! The place is gorgeous - very green front yard, high ceilings inside. Our bedroom was very spacious, the bed was comfy, and the bathroom is very nice. This listing is definitely worth the price. Prime location, and comes along with the sweetest cat I have ever met.

    Priya2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Christine's place is peaceful and lovely. I love this neighborhood and it's a great place to take a morning walk and convenient to everything. Will definitely try to stay here next time I'm in Des Moines.

Highly recommend!

    Just relisted! The perfect room(s) in a beautifully restored 1893 Victorian home in Sherman Hill, Des Moines. On a quiet street in the heart of the Sherman Hill historic district, you'll be a short walk from the center of downtown and all the shops, restaurants, bars and festivals it has to offer. Hoyt Sherman Place is a 3 block stroll for quick trips to catch a show or you'll be staying just 4 blocks from Mercy Medical Center should you need to stay near a loved one they are caring for.
  • I enjoyed staying at Dylan's Victorian home with all the charm it offered. It's situated in the Sherman Hill neighborhood, which is full of homes from this period. It was even fun walking the neighborhood. The room I stayed in was large, with a great big flat screen TV, a fridge, and a very comfy bed. I slept like a rock! I also enjoyed using the vintage tub with shower enclosure. Dylan is working to make this house feel like one is living in a true turn-of-the-century home. It was a fun stay! The best, though, was just spending some time talking to Dylan. He's very accommodating, helpful with local tips, and and all-around great person to talk to. I would stay at his place again.

    Becky2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very convenient location, and the host, Dylan is very friendly and kind. Great value

    Mokhtar2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed our stay, Dylan was quick to reply, responsive, friendly. The location is a quiet neighborhood with a great grocery store/cafe just 2 blocks away (Gateway Market), we had both dinner and breakfast there. The bed is comfortable, and the room was comfortable for for two of us plus our two dogs.

    Maya2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dylan's home is charming! He is great company (if you want it) and is a perfect host, very concerned about every aspect of our stay. He works from home, so he's around during the day. Be sure to meet Wrigley, Dylan's Golden Doodle. The house is an old Victorian so be prepared for some squeaks and creaks of the floors. The bed is so very comfortable and the sheets are silky soft. We both slept extremely well, which is unusual when traveling. The location is ideal, just a few minutes from almost everything. Don't miss The Gateway Café/Market that is just around the corner.

    Lisa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! Location is fantastic - very easy to get around, close to highway and interstate. Very comfy bed :) Dylan was personable and helpful - even made me coffee in the morning. Would stay again for sure!

  • Tina and Tom are amazingly hospitable. We also got to share some love with their two sphinx babies, and even their furry, older cat. The place was clean. The hot tub outside was nice and hot, even with the weather only being 10 degrees and snowy! Our room was nice and private as needed, but we also had wonderful conversations with our hosts. I would definitely like to come back in the summer to fully enjoy their outdoor lounge. Their home is beautiful. Tina is a Pinterest fiend and Tom is quite the artist. There were so many things I loved about the house and property.

    Kelsey2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Tina and Tom were super friendly and welcoming. We had everything we needed to be comfortable, and this listing offered the best value by far compared to everything else in the area. I highly recommend staying here!
