The SpaceThanks for stopping by! We would like to invite you to our comfortable home in the Drake/Beaverdale neighborhoods. We have a cozy bedroom available with off-white carpeting, a full size black iron bed with a Serta Plush mattress, chair, dresser and desk. The bedroom has a flat panel television with antenna reception only. No cable. Your private bathroom is just a couple steps outside your bedroom. For the most part we are a quiet household. If you feel like cooking, everything you need is probably in the kitchen. If you feel like lounging on the main floor please do so. Pick a seat to enjoy a book, flip through a magazine, watch some tv or play cards on the front porch. If you're on the front porch take in the beauty of 100 year-old oaks still standing tall. Our home is on a mature tree-lined street in the heart of Des Moines. The neighborhood is a great place for walking and running and is close to many restaurants, bars, theatres and shops. The location is central to all things North, East, South and West, so when it comes to traveling in the metro you're in the most convenient area. DART bus service is available only a half block from the house. Interstate 235 is a few blocks to the south, and many of the main arteries are close by too. For our Summer and Autumn guests, Beaverdale Farmer's Market is Tuesday evenings. It's a very enjoyable destination. The farthest destination in the metro is only 15 to 20 minutes, and while your traveling around the city we hope you find why we love our hometown Des Moines. Drake University is less than five minutes away, and Des Moines University is 10 minutes. Check out the guidebook on this listing for some of our favorites places around town. For guests flying or coming by bus we will be happy to pick you up free of charge. We look forward to meeting and hosting you. Safe travels and Cheers, Tony Junior and Ro Guest AccessMain and upper floor except for bedrooms. Interaction with GuestsInteractions are nice, if not that's fine too. One of us will be here to greet you and give you a tour at check-in. Feel free to store the contact number for calls and texts. We offer a self-serve continental breakfast. The NeighborhoodVery diverse neighborhood . The area has mostly owner-operator restaurants, bars, grocery stores, theatre, coffee houses and shops. It is not a "big chain" neighborhood. A lot of walking, running and biking takes place. Short distance to Drake University and Des Moines University Getting AroundDART public bus service, Uber and many taxi companies. Other Things to NoteCommunication is vital between a guest and host.

The SpaceWe have a small house that is very efficient! If you are looking for an expansive space this is not the one!! :) We are a non-smoking home. I also ask that you please do not smoke on the property. We do not wear shoes in the house. If you are going to be later than 10:00pm please let me know and we can arrange arrival information. Since I rent two spaces I provide towels, pillows and a robe (upon request), a full length mirror and each room locks and has its own key. Quiet hours are between 10pm and 7am. During that time I ask that you be aware of the volume of the TV and of your phone conversations. Guest AccessYour room, the bathroom and kitchen are the guest areas of our home. I am currently renovating the outside so there is really nowhere to sit except the front steps. You are welcome to our washing machine and dryer (please talk to me first and I can help you with that process) if you are a long term guest. Our family space is downstairs. You are also welcome to access the kitchen. I cook with cast iron skillets and stainless steel pots. We have a keurig for coffee as well as stevia and raw sugar. Interaction with GuestsI am always willing to share with you ideas or recommendations during your stay. I was raised in the Des Moines area and have enjoyed exploring the city. I would be willing to chat if you are interested or will give you space if that is what you prefer. We are a quiet, happy and welcoming home and we invite you to participate in that environment. We look forward to meeting you! The NeighborhoodWe are within walking distance of a small cute neighborhood and well-reviewed eateries! It is a cute neighborhood and is only a few minutes from Downtown or West Des Moines. It is a safe neighborhood with running and bike trails nearby. It is a city neighborhood and has an eclectic blend of people and houses. I am not located in the suburbs, it is definitely an older, urban neighborhood. I love it. As a single mother of four young children it is important to me to feel safe. I even walk alone at night. Getting AroundStreet Parking is on the west side of the street (facing south) only but otherwise the only restrictions would be if there was a huge snowstorm. Other Things to NoteWe use the side door and the step in a little low there so watch your step. Also, the door can stick a little so feel free to give it a good push. The house is small and cozy. We would appreciate your windows and the side door always being locked if you leave and the room you are staying in can also be locked if you feel more comfortable. Also, please lock the side door when you are in for the night.

The SpaceIt is a refinished attic space with a full bed and tv with cable. It has a private half-bath up there, but the shower is on the main level of the home. There is also a fenced backyard, which you are welcome to use (great for dogs!) Guest AccessHelp yourself to anything! Interaction with GuestsI work 8-5 during the week and coach a dance team part time, but am usually a home-body. Happy to take you out and show you the town, or let you have your space. Either way is fine with me! The NeighborhoodI love that this neighborhood is so close to EVERYTHING. Charming Beaverdale is only about a mile away, downtown about 5 minutes, Jordan Creek area is about 10 minutes. It is a quiet area with the interstate easily accessible. Getting AroundParking is available on the East side of Holcomb Ave- right next to my house. Public transportation is just up the street about a block also. The airport is about a 15-20 minute drive. Other Things to NotePlease note I do have two cats and a dog that stay on the main level and should be out of your way for the most part. The dog will likely greet you when you walk in the door, however. She is a whopping 6 pounds and is very sweet.

The SpaceThe two bedrooms that are being rented out will be on the 2nd floor. If someone is renting for an extended period of time, they would have access to both rooms. Bedroom + office. Guest AccessAccess to all common areas. Kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom. Laundry downstairs. Interaction with GuestsI live here at all times. I have 2 extra bedrooms that I don't occupy, so am looking to rent them out whenever need be. I am rarely at home during the day, mostly to sleep. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood has a ton of character. Most houses were built in the early 1900's. Getting AroundThere are dart bus stops very close by. Always an UBER driver within 5 min or less it seems. Cabs always available-little less convenient than UBER. Other Things to NoteI have 2 cats that live in the basement that you probably will never see unless you go downstairs for laundry. I have a little dog that loves people, but is rarely here if I'm not here. I work early Friday and Saturday mornings, so I like to be at home and relaxing at a decent time.

The SpaceMy guest space is a large attic, three rooms plus a small bathroom. The rooms are adjoining with no doors but I have privacy screens for my guests to move around at will. I will never book more than one group there at one time. Please note: the bathroom is VERY tiny. Large and tall people have difficulty with it. Guest AccessYou will have access to the attic space, as described above, and the kitchen which is on the main floor, as well as the back yard during nice weather. Interaction with GuestsI will try to be there to welcome my guests. I live in the home and stay there most nights but I do travel some for work. The NeighborhoodA grocery store is 1/2 block away, and there's a great restaurant for dinner and weekend breakfast right around the corner. Getting AroundParking is on the street in front of the house; a local bus stop is 1/2 block away.

The SpaceWe have two living rooms in our home so you are welcome to have one all to yourself! Guest AccessSpacious private bedroom and living area, and shared bathroom and kitchen space. Interaction with GuestsWe will be available to answer any questions you might have about the area! If you're with us on a Friday or Saturday night, there is a chance we might have another couple over to play board games in the basement. We try to be respectful of the noise level but we would encourage you to not be shy if there is any issues! :) Getting AroundWe are right up the street from a DART bus stop but a short taxi/uber ride away from nearly anywhere in DSM you'd want to visit. Free street parking Other Things to NoteWe have cats!

The SpaceWe love vintage finds, so the house is uniquely decorated with some treasures. Guests will have access to a private bedroom. The bedroom includes a queen-size bed, desk, and dresser which you are welcome to use. The bathroom is shared and has a full size tub and shower. Towels will be provided during your stay. If you need anything else, we'd be more than happy to accommodate you. Guest AccessYou will have access to the entire house. The basement has a separate living area you are welcome to use but more than welcome to share the living room with us. We would love to get to know you. Interaction with GuestsWe have a comfortable living area where you can feel free to just sit and talk or watch Netflix if you choose. These are shared spaces, so you may see us around them too! There is also a washer and dryer available for use if needed. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is just 10 minute drive from downtown, which has restaurants and bars. There is a park and library just down the road. We are close to a little area called Beaverdale, just a few blocks away that has some fun bars and a great BBQ joint. Or house is on the corner, so plenty of off street parking. Getting AroundGetting around Des Moines by car is very easy. There is a bus stop just a few blocks away that can get you around town, but not super convenient. Uber and Taxi's are always an option also. Other Things to NotePlease note we have to cats running around, Fresca and Arlo. They are pretty easy going, but let us know if they are bothering you.

The SpaceBedroom connects to family room. Fun "Lake" décor. Guest AccessYou may enter through front door or walk out basement door. May use refrigerator. Washer and dryer available for extended stay guests. Interaction with GuestsLong-time Des Moines and Iowa residents willing to give travel tips and directions. You will have your privacy if you want it, or come chat for a while! The NeighborhoodWe are on a dead end street, so it's very quiet. Older neighborhood with mature trees gives our back yard lots of shade. Vacant lot directly across the street makes the front view open and roomy. Woods lining the back yard lets you see very few neighbors. Getting AroundBus route stop is a five minute walk from our house. We have had several guests use it. We are also 5 minutes off I80 and I35. Very convenient for travelers needing a rest. Other Things to NoteLast minute reservations gladly accepted. Additional separate guest bedroom with shared bath available for extra fee. Perfect for the kids or travelling companions.

The SpaceWelcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) In the lower level, it's very light, newly remodeled two years ago, and in one of the nicest, quietest historic neighborhoods. Check in time can be more flexible on the weekends, so please ask about early check in if you are visiting on a weekend. You'll also see that I have every Monday as unavailable, however, if you want to extend a weekend stay into Monday or include Mondays in a long term stay, we can work it out: I am just not available to check guests in on Mondays. Let me know! If you are allergic to cats or really don't want them visiting you during your stay, this is the wrong place for you. Three friendly felines (Yowlie, Trinket, and Vlad) have access to the lower level. Also, for groups of three, if you plan to party a bit, please keep it very quiet: particularly in summer, with the windows open, noise really travels and you can be heard for a block in this very quiet residential neighborhood. Guest AccessAccess to laundry room, screened porch, and kitchen. Interaction with GuestsYou'll have my phone number for emergencies, and I'm often right upstairs. I grew up in Des Moines, so if you have questions or want recommendations for dinner, ask me: I'm super opinionated! :) The NeighborhoodBeaverdale 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, and downtown Beaverdale, with shops and restaurants, is two blocks the other direction. Getting AroundWe're a twenty minute drive from downtown, and that's if the traffic is heavy. Nothing in the metro area is more than 20 to 30 minutes away by car. The airport is about fifteen minutes away even in "bad" traffic. DMU is 10 minutes at most, Drake, about the same. Other Things to NoteStreet parking on one side of the street only: you'll see where other cars are parked, so park the same way! :)

WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT THE HOME Very quiet neighborhood close to the interstate and Merle Hay shopping center. This home is in Johnston School district but outside of Des Moines or Johnston for tax purposes. Extremely close to the lower beaver brownstone/mansion neighborhood with less than 5 minute bike ride to bike trails and 20-30 minute ride to downtown, West Des Moines, or a little further to Ankeny. The entire neighborhood has tall trees that attract a lot of natural wild life. Walk out to your private garden oasis and you will constantly see lots of pretty birds, deer, squirrels, bunnies and more. The home itself has been renovated with technology you would only otherwise normally see in luxury homes. It is decked out with multiple smart locks (push button and bluetooth). Guest AccessLiving room, garden, deck, and kitchen. The NeighborhoodQuiet neighborhood near Johnston and Merle Hay Shopping. Lots of nature and animals. Getting AroundFree driveway parking and extremely close to interstate access. You can get *almost* anywhere in Des Moines, Ankeny, or suburbs within 20 minutes. Using Uber (app on iPhone or Android) to have your private chauffeur taking you anywhere. 15-20 minute ride to the airport.
