About this listing
Our home has an upstairs with two bedrooms (this listing is for 1 of the rooms) and a full bath. Besides the twin (or 2) the room includes dresser, mirror, tv, nightstand, fan, hamper, empty closet with hangers.
Unique and private home on a wooded lot. A private upstairs with two spacious bedrooms and full bathroom. There is an extra parking stall in our driveway or street parking.
Feel free to use the kitchen, deck, living room, workout room, and laundry. If staying for a longer period of time we will clear room in our fridge so you have space for groceries
My husband and I may be in and out of the house during your stay. We are more than happy to leave you alone or you can join us for a drink and ask us anything about the location.
Our neighborhood is quiet and friendly. There is a park across the street, bike path nearby and local businesses within a couple miles.
Near interstate access and ten minutes from downtown. Parking is never an issue as street parking is always an option.
We do have a beagle that roams the house. She is very friendly and loves to sleep - she will not be a bother! If you have a dog that you need to house with you - just let us know so we can work something out.

The house was beautiful and spacious and Caley was an outstanding host. Being able to stay here made my trip back to my hometown the best trip I've had yet. Thank you so much for providing this gorgeous space!
We had a great experience! Our hosts were on vacation, but they left excellent instructions on the house and things to do around town. The accommodations were very comfortable and it was an easy place to relax. I really liked the basement gym, which had a nice variety of equipment. In addition to the house, the neighborhood was also very nice and seemed like a good place for a jog. Next time we come back to Des Moines, we will definitely check Caley's place for availability!
Lovely older neighborhood. We never met our hosts but communication was not a problem with notes and texting. Room was clean, but cramped with the trundle bed pulled out. While the rest of the home seemed adequately cooled, our room was very warm at bedtime. Bella was absolutely delightful!
Sorry you felt warm upstairs! We understand that these Iowa summers are hot and upstairs are always warmer. If you ever stay again, we explain the thermostat location in the journal we have in the rooms- you are more than welcome to go turn down if feeling uncomfortable!
Kind enough to leave a note with wi-fi password, TV instructions, had a great guestbook and their dog was the bomb. Super cute.
Be prepared for beagle kisses.
Ben just happened to be in the driveway and greeted us as we pulled up to their house. We were directed to our room which had a shared bathroom down the hall. We dropped our bags a headed out for dinner and a little shopping, all near by. This was the last stop of our trip before a 10 hour drive and we had a good sleep on a firm bed. We felt very welcome to staying with Ben and Caely. Thanks!
This is the second time I have stayed in this home while waiting for the closing of my Ankeny home and starting my new job. I have really enjoyed staying here this week as well. It was a great home away from home. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Des Moines area.
