I chose this property because it is in a area of Des Moines that has experienced great growth over the past few years. The property is located near some of Des Moines newest restuarants, bars, and shopping areas yet close enough to downtown.

LOVELY AND COMFORTABLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
We spent a month here and felt at home immediately. The home is comfortable with a beautiful deck and yard. This is the best equipped home we have ever rented down to the paper products, laundry products, cleaning supplies, kitchen soaps, etc. Just about every imaginable spice and condiment was here which made it very easy to cook and enjoy the "shuffle board" dining room table. We will definitely stay here again.

GREAT FAMILY REUNION MEETING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect setting for our family reunion. The kitchen was well appointed so we could eat all our meals here together without having to go out. The backyard was perfect for the teen-agers to play Frisbee and hang out on the deck. We had room for everyone to spread out and be comfortable. The neighborhood was lovely for evening walks. The location was great for groceries and mall shopping as well as access to Des Moines activities. It felt comfortable like being home with family without all the work.

GREAT HOME IN THE DES MOINES AREA!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful sisters weekend in this lovely home in Waukee. The home is clean and well-maintained. The living room, dining area, and kitchen are open and very spacious with nice modern finishes and decor. The 4 bedrooms are all upstairs with a large master bedroom. Jethro's barbecue is just down the street and Jordan Creek Mall is just a few miles away. The deck and fenced-in yard looked great! Too bad there was too much snow to enjoy it this time. We will definitely stay here again!
