Adam is an amazing host! I went to Des Moines to take the bar exam and he made sure to leave me some healthy snacks for any late night studying I had to do. That thoughtfulness made me feel right at home. One little note, some of the super awesome furniture in the apartment is made by Adam along with the help of a local steelworker. This bespoke furniture really takes the apartment to a whole new level of awesome.
About the space: Everything is truly as comfortable and cozy as it appears in the photographs. The kitchen is well stocked if you want to whip up some scrambled eggs in the morning. The coffee Adam provided for the French press coffee was delicious. The bed was divine. The television set-up with HBO was so much fun after I got past studying.
About the neighborhood: The East Village has some of the best places to eat in town. I loved being only a block away from Tacopocalypse - a fusion restaurant with delicious Mexican and Vietnamese inspired dishes. City Bakery and Zombie Burger are also nearby. I am sure there are many others that Adam could tell you about.
About the location: If you have never been to Des Moines before this is located in an easy to find spot off the interstate. Ah, and there is free off street parking as well. Very handy.
Conclusion: This place is awesome! The hosts are awesome! Stay here!
Adam was a great host. He Stayed in touch with us before we came and during our stay. The loft is beautiful and well appointed. You could not ask for a better location. I would definely stay here again.
Adam's place was super nice and comfortable. The area worked out great for us with many nearby restaurants. Adam's guest book was very helpful in finding the perfect meal and places to go. Thanks for a great weekend!
Crackerjack host(s). Understanding/beyond tolerant of our short-notice booking and unfortunate delay (was traveling by car, cross country, with baby). Very appealing loft space, in terms of design and in terms of cleanliness. Thoughtful touches such as an abundance of towels, an empty shelf in the fridge, and even slippers were appreciated. Felt comfortable with my infant there. Would stay again without hesitation. Thanks so much!
First of all, the East Village Loft is straight out of a pottery barn look book. Beautiful, quaint, tastefully designed and decorated, comfy, homey, perfect space (and spotless). I stayed here on a business trip and it really made my stay that much better. The outside patio was great, watched the sunset while eating dinner. Adam was a great host. Very responsive, provides lots of tips and recommendations for things to do in the area. I highly recommend this loft and 5 stars to Adam for being an awesome host.
Adam and his girlfriend Amy were the most gracious hosts -ever! From the moment I booked the loft, to the moment I left, everything was just perfect. The incredible attention to detail was evident everywhere:
>Adam communicated promptly and clearly, leaving no questions unanswered.
>The loft was spotless and beautifully decorated.
>There was a welcome! bottle of wine and two glasses in a basket awaiting on the kitchen table when we arrived
>Adam printed out suggestions on where to find art in Des Moines (I told him I was an artist), which was just such a caring touch!
>There were fresh bathrobes, slippers, a well-stocked spice cabinet, reclaimed wood furniture, and a beautifully made bed worthy of a 5 star hotel; Plus, the loft is convenient to everything in town.
This was my best Airbnb experience so far. Thank you, Adam!
Staying at the loft was like staying at home. Adam was a great host and kept in touch every step of the way. We didn't get time to explore the downtown area but hope to next time! Location was perfect for getting in and out of town as needed.
Adam really went above and beyond. Not only was the place sleek & comfortable, but there were also little touches like guest toiletries in the bathroom and a welcome kit that really made me feel welcome and at home. This is a great place to stay. 5 stars! Thanks, Adam!
It was wonderful meeting Adam and Amy and getting to know 2 fellow Des Moines Airbnb hosts and sharing stories. They have an awesome Condo in the Heart of downtown Des Moines that I can't wait to visit and would recommend in a heartbeat, especially for guests who want a true downtown experience or would prefer not to rent a car. These two educated, fun professionals are welcome back at our place anytime! Top Shelf Recommendation!!
