Why Andrew Mosman chose Des Moines

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.

Guy Trip Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with eight of my old high school friends for a "guy trip" weekend. We're all in our mid 30's now. The house was perfect for us. We all had plenty of room for our food/drinks and for sleeping. The master bedroom has a huge closet that I slept in on a queen size blow up mattress. We walked about five minutes down the street to Jethro's BBQ.....which was fantastic. The yard was big enough for us to play bags and the deck was big enough for us to sit down and relax. A privacy fence was behind the grill which gave us more privacy from the next door neighbor. The location allowed us to drive short distances to activities (golf, river tubing, restaurants, etc). We had a great time and would stay here again.

Wonderful Family Home Perfect for a Family on Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house with all of the conveniences of home that are really appreciated when traveling. The purpose of our visit to Des Moines was to get the kids/cousins together. In addition to four adults, we had kids from ages 3 months to 20 years. The deck and yard were fantastic -- beautiful yard that's fully fenced let the parents relax while the kids played. With the exception of our fun day at the Iowa State Fair, we cooked all of our meals and found the kitchen and grill to be all that was promised. The convenience of the two car garage with access to the kitchen was also appreciated.

A family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We had wonderful family time at the rental house. It was large enough for three couples and a single person, plus a two kids (2&7) The kids had plenty of table/floor space to play or create. They had a fully enclosed grass back yard to run and play. Adults had room to play games as well in the back yard, plus a large deck with table and chairs. Large bedrooms, closets, large driveway, plus two car garage parking. Needless to say we just stayed a tthe house most of the time. There was extra bedding available, pack and play plus an air mattress for kids to sleep comfortably. Parents were able to relax and enjoy their time with the rest of the family while the kids slept. We would stay here again...

Excellent accommodations!

This gorgeous house was clean and furnished to the T. There was nothing we needed that wasn't available to us, and everything was fantastic for our family weekend get together! We will definitely stay at this property again the next time we are in Des Moines!

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.
