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.

Great place to stay while visiting family in Des Moines

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wedding in Des Moines and decided to rent a house instead of a hotel so the family could all stay in one location. This house was the perfect choice. The house was very clean and the decor was well done. There were plenty of supplies, towels, shampoo, tp etc. The beds were comfy with plenty of extra blankets and there was an extra air mattress that came in handy for the kids. Being able to cook breakfast and dinners together each day was really nice. There were plenty of pots and pans, even for our large group. I can't think of one thing we needed and didn't have. The location was ideal for attending the wedding, close to shopping and movies, and the house was quiet even though it sat off of a busy road. It was nice having a garage to park in when it snowed. All in all we had a great stay and would definitely stay here again. Thank you for every thing!

White dogs welcomed!

  • 5 out of 5
I want to thank the owner of this lovely home. His accommodations were outstanding. The fenced yard was a personal favorite of our travelling canine companions. The grill and deck were a great plus! The baths, bedrooms and familyroom wonderful! The location very nice. Thank you for making our trip to Iowa memorable!

Guy Trip Weekend

  • 5 out 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 out 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 out 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...
