Location

Ames, Iowa, United States

The home is in the perfect location within walking distance to Jack Trice Stadium, Hilton Coliseum and Stephens Auditorium and other local attractions.

It is within a 15 minute walk to many area restaurants. Downtown Ames is just a few minutes drive to shopping and additional amenities!

South Riverside Drive is a no through road. Therefore, making it quiet with no passing traffic.

At the end of the S. Riverside Drive there is the Stuart Smith park area with a bridge that crosses the Squaw Creek.

The bridge leads directly opposite the Jack Trice Stadium. (bridge shown in photos)

The house backs onto the Squaw Creek with private wooded backdrop.

I am currently living in Iowa USA with my husband. I am British and left the UK over 14 years ago and have lived in Montana USA and Prince Edward Island Canada . Both my children are now grown up and studying in universities in Canada. I have just purchased my own Rental property and have become an Airbnb host in our home town of Ames Iowa.

During your stay
The house is designed to provide guest with total privacy with minimal interaction with the hosts.

Keyless entry enables the ability to check into the house without a physical key.

With that being said, we live in Ames and are available in case our guests need any assistance! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything.

I worked in the travel and tourism industry for 10 years in the U.K. before starting my family. I became a stay at home mum when our family relocated firstly to Montana, USA, then to Prince Edward Island, Canada, and now finally I live in Ames, Iowa.

Both of my kids are now in university and it seemed a perfect time to get back into the hospitality business by managing my very own airbnb in Ames.

On our many travels and vacations as a family we always loved staying in airbnbs. The convenience of having the entire house to ourselves was like being home away from home.

So I am excited to be back in the hospitality business and catering to all my guests' needs with my very own airbnb, offering that home away from home experience
