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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Gina was welcoming. The room was large and bed comfortable. Location was perfect for visiting Drake. Neighborhood was within walking distance to the college (which was exactly what we were looking for).

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend in Des Moines. Gina and Alex's home was the perfect place to come back to at the end of the night. The room was lovely, with lots of natural light, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. They made us feel very welcome in their home, and I would recommend staying with them to anyone visiting Des Moines.

We had a short but wonderful stay with Gina and her husband. Our bed was super comfortable and their home was very cute, cozy and just as listed. The area is perfect, very close to Drake and a short drive to the downtown area which has awesome shops and restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Woo! Almost didn't make the cut off to leave a review! Gina and Alex had been very welcoming, they also have a dog who is very fun, sorry forgot his name, but he hung out with me in the evening while I was doing some computer work. Sat on the bed and played tug of war. The bed was very comfortable and the house felt very warm. Loved every minute with Gina! Can't wait to stay again.

Gina and her husband have a lovely home. She was super quick with communication, and even though they weren't home while I was staying at their place, she made to clearly let me know where the key to the house was located and the password for the wifi. The room and bathroom were great! It was very clean, comfortable, and on a quiet street!

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.
