Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Des Moines

An executive, modern ranch perfect for business travelers or family and friends getaways. Located in Urbandale, Iowa you are never more than 15 minutes away from the Des Moines hotspots and attractions:

- Downtown Des Moines (East Village Shops, Court Avenue Nightlife, sports teams like I-Cubs/Iowa Energy/Iowa Wild, and employers like Principal, Meredith, Nationwide, and ING)

- West Des Moines (Historic Valley Junction, Jordan Creek Mall, and employers like Wells Fargo, Farm Bureau, and Guide One)

- Grimes/Urbandale/Johnston (Lots of families, parks, and employers like Marsh, John Deere, and DuPont Pioneer)

- Clive Greenbelt (11.3 miles recreational trail curving through Polk and Dallas Counties)

- Altoona (Adventureland and Prairie Meadows Race Track & Casino)

This newly renovated ranch features a modern, open-concept living area. As you walk through the front door, the baby grand piano is eye catching against the picture windows overlooking a private, fenced-in yard. The dining area and sunroom have sliding doors that open to the large patio with tasteful landscaping and a gas grill. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and all the essentials to allow you to prepare meals as if you were in your own home. A cozy couch, chair, flat screen TV, gas fireplace and a convenient half bath round out the modern main-level living space.

Also on the main-level are three bedrooms and two baths. Fresh towels and bedding will be provided. The master bedroom features a king-size TempurPedic bed and an attached master bath with tiled shower, walk-in closet, and washer and dryer. The second bedroom has a queen-size pillow-top bed and the third bedroom has a crib (perfect for the infant travelers!) and a queen air mattress.

An open staircase leads to the lower-level where there is a full bathroom, king-size Sleep Number bed, full futon, two twin beds, and a bonus room where you'll find a twin air mattress. The striking feature of this fully finished, open-concept basement is the bar, an extra mid-sized refrigerator, plasma TV, DVD, and surround sound.

About Leslie

A retired couple that splits their time between daughters and grandchildren in the Midwest and East Coast. They have a love for landscaping and home projects, which you’ll have the opportunity to experience and appreciate when you visit. Daughter, Leslie, lives just five minutes away from the house and is available to assist guests with any questions during their visit.

Leslie purchased this house in 2008

Why Leslie chose Des Moines

Not only is Des Moines home to two beautiful grandchildren, but it is also a prime Midwestern location. Close to Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and Omaha, it’s the perfect meeting spot for friends and family. With a growing number of large employer groups and recreational attractions for people of all ages, the Des Moines area was an easy choice.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all had a wonderful stay. The home is far more beautiful than pictures could depict, and the dogs LOVED the yard for play. Thank you!

Christmas Joy

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Des Moines the weekend after Christmas to meet with our children and our grandchildren. What a wonderful time we had. Your home is so lovely, way beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect. So much space and fantastic accommodations. We have never stayed at a more relaxing spot. Young and old alike had such a great time. You had everything we needed. Would love to be there during the spring or summer. What a amazing sunroom and backyard. You were so helpful to us. Thank you again for our holiday reunion.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in town for a wedding and we came from east and west coasts and Canada. This home was an oasis for us while we were in town. It was the perfect meeting point for all of us. The owners thought of everything and we were quite at ease in this very spacious and beautiful home! The playroom was perfect for us as we have 5 children! Major selling point for mom!! Beds were super comfy. I'd recommend a regular queen bed in the room with the crib. The entire family loved this place and it made a hectic weekend very enjoyable! Thank you so much!

Wedding for out of town guests

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and Leslie was great at making sure it was available for us to stay. It has a beautiful layout and is so comfortable. Everyone felt right at home. Loved the built in sound system throughout the house. There is a Tempurpedic bed and a Sleep Number bed too. Luxury at its finest! I could rave about this property all day. AMAZING!

Fantastic place in Des Moines!

  • 5 of 5

Our team was down in Des Moines for the Farm Progress Show. This house was our sanctuary after working 16 hour days up in Boone, IA at the show. Everything was clean, the kitchen was great for making meals. Every amenity you could think of. A washer/dryer in the master bedroom. Plus, the large downstairs with all the beds came in very handy. I highly recommend this place.

Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this lovely home while in town for a family wedding. The home is tastefully decorated while offering warmth and comfort. The master king bed was amazing! The property landscape is beautiful. We enjoyed every bit the house offered including the surround sound. We did not want to leave!

A++++, we never want to stay in a hotel again.
