Family friendly 4bd 2ba home just a little over a mile from the Iowa state fairgrounds! A few miles from Adventureland and a few miles the other way from all the downtown awesomeness that Des Moines has to offer!

Gather round the big farmhouse dining table and enjoy dinner with a fully stocked kitchen. Chill & enjoy the summer evening on the oversized porch swing. 2 Huge couches. BBQ grill, snacks & complimentary beverages provided. (Including a bottle of wine)

The space
Every single thing that’s wooden here- we made by hand 🥰 (including the deck, pergola, porch swing & dining table!) We make porch swings & farmhouse furniture for a living, so enjoy our home and our work! (If you wanna order a swing let us know) www.WrestlerMade.com

We put a lot of work & love into modernizing this home and making it as functional as it is cozy & cute!

We hope you enjoy your stay and have hopefully taken a lot of the stress out of traveling by staying here. You have allllll the amenities, cooking supplies, (commonly needed condiments provided in fridge, spices in cabinet, pantry items, coffee & tea) toiletries & first aid items (including face wash in the showers, cause I ALWAYS forget that when traveling), & outdoor space to make your trip an easy, carefree one!


Here you get the lush fluffy towels, (our apt air bnb gets the $4 towels 😜cause lord knows). There’s extra beach/outdoor towels so you don’t have to pack those!

Quality bedding, a Nectar mattress in the master bedroom, memory foam mattress in the Paris themed room. The other upstairs bedroom is an international travel theme has a queen bed and French doors that lead to the backyard. The bedroom downstairs we refer to as the ‘bachelor pad oasis’ and has a full size mattress and PLENTY of floor space for air mattresses if need be.

Basement has a large L shaped sectional couch and a decent amount of wrestling mats (cause duhhh Iowa🤼). Kids can crash on the wrestling mats with sleeping bags and grown ups can have the beds!

There’s extra bedding and a sleeping bag for anyone who wants to sleep on the couches or mats. (Easily can fit 2 adults or a few kids on couches)

You can also use the gym & mats downstairs (just please tell kiddos to be careful). It has free weights, a heavy bag, a speed bag, resistance bands and yoga mats.

Nice, large capacity washer & dryer. Laundry soap provided.

In the backyard there’s 2 tree swings and soccer goals!
This is a family friendly home bc it is our home when we are in Iowa, we have tried to think of everything but we are human, so if we have missed a spot or forgot something, just let us know- we are easy & reasonable folks that want you to have a great stay and our property manager is a great guy too! However if you are of the high strung, rude, negative Nancy or Karen type-we aren’t for you, please book elsewhere.
