The space
Hello Neighbor! This apartment will be your home in Des Moines. You are given an access code to enter the building. Arriving at your unit, there is a lockbox with a key to get inside. The code is sent on the day of your arrival. Noise between other units/floors is minimal as there are concrete floors and walls.

Just inside the front door, there is an area for your coat, bag, keys, etc. The kitchen has a Keurig, K-pods, Brita water pitcher, toaster, plates, bowls, silverware, drinking glasses, wine glasses, kitchen utensils, pots & pans, bakeware and more. There is also a dining table with seating.

The living room has a sofa, chair and smart TV where you can use your existing account for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. There is also cable and wireless internet provided throughout.

The bedroom has a queen-size bed with a dresser and a separate closet with hangers. There is also a full-size washer & dryer, drying rack, iron, ironing board, laundry supplies, etc. All of the windows in the apartment have privacy shades, but I recommend bringing a sleep mask if you need darker sleeping conditions!

The bathroom has a stand-up shower with body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. Under the bathroom sink, there are additional towels, toilet paper, and a hairdryer.
