Professional couple - 30 yrs old. Home is just down the street from Drake University, near downtown. Bedroom has queen bed & desk. Shared bathroom with hosts. Newly remodeled bathroom & kitchen. Clean & tidy. I will probably do some cooking to share.
Main floor has living room with wood-burning fireplace, sitting room, newly remodeled kitchen with eat in bar, dining room, and half-bath. I make coffee in the morning. If you feel like cooking, everything you need is probably in the kitchen.
Half-way-finished basement has sectional, TV, dart board, laundry, and ironing board. Guests are welcome to use the laundry. We do not have cable.
Upstairs has two bedrooms (1 hosts' and 1 guest's) and newly remodeled bathroom. Towels are in linen closet between rooms.
We've got a long driveway that you will be able to park in.
Guests are welcome in all parts of the house.
Interaction with guests
We're happy to answer any questions you have and point you to fun places in Des Moines. We work normal hours and are pretty active, but we'll be around the house sometimes during your stay.
Other things to note
If you're up between 6 & 7:30, we'll need to coordinate bathroom access time. We have a small beagle who stays with us half the time and with my parents the other half, so he may not be around.
My husband and I are active young professionals. We recently finished remodeling much of our house and enjoy having company. We've got a small beagle who stays with us half of the time and with my parents half the time.
