About this listing
Welcome to Des Moines! My home is a comfortable house in a lovely and quiet neighborhood. Luxurious queen bed and shared bath (with me). 10 minutes to downtown, 3 minutes to the airport, and a mile from the bike trail. Park safely in the driveway.
The bedroom is located in the rear of the house, right next to the shared bathroom (with me). Super comfortable queen bed with cotton sheets and plump hypo-allergenic pillows. There are extra pillows and blankets in the closet, quiet ceiling fan, floor fan for those who like white noise, an iron, and ironing board.
The house has WiFi and a TV in the living room. The study, with great natural light, offers a relaxing space and a desk for guests traveling on business. Feel free to keep food and drink in the frig.
Your breakfast options include coffee, tea, fruit, and occasional tasty pastries.

I am an Iowa native that returned home after 27 years in Missouri. I love to explore my creative side and meet new and interesting people so Airbnb has been perfect for me! Des Moines is a great city and I love all it has to offer - a vibrant music scene, chef owned restaurants, live theater, bike trails, art and music festivals....And nothing beats Iowa nice.
My life motto? Live life fully and with zest!
