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.

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.
