We enjoyed our stay. Traveling with another couple so the shared living space was nice to just relax and visit. We liked the privacy as is pretty secluded yet close to edge of city. Saw deer Saturday AM. Easy access. Prompt communication/responses from Marymar. Very hot weekend so the AC was much appreciated.
This was a lovely place to stay. We were a family of 4 (2 kids) visiting Des Moines, and stayed here as our home away from home, mostly in the evenings and overnight. We didn't explore the property. The house was comfortable, clean, and well equipped, and the central air conditioning was much appreciated (though there were no screens on the windows, which some folks might have liked). It was very easy to access the city (note that some streets are marked differently from directions on Google Maps, e.g. Hart St.). Communications with the host were easy and friendly, and we were welcomed and well supported on our visit. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
