About Rachel Goebel
I am an artist, technologist, mommy, wife, and entrepreneur. I was born and raised in the area and am excited to host for guests, so they can experience this wonderful city! My husband and I have rehabbed distressed properties all around the Des Moines area, including this one, priding ourselves in making each home special. I work to give each home an artistic touch. We have two young children and enjoy traveling ourselves. I work in IT at a local insurance company.
Rachel Goebel purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Rachel Goebel chose Greater South Side
My husband and I bought this property in 2015 when it was in pretty rough condition. We lived in it while we rehabbed it and so we got to know the area as well. We knew there was a lot of potential to make this duplex shine and we are very proud of both the upstairs and downstairs.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is a great location so close to the airport and an easy drive into Downtown Des Moines. So much to explore around the area and the apartment has been thoughtfully equipped and decorated to make sure your stay in Des Moines is a great one. One block away from the bus stop makes public transit for travelers a breeze.

We ran up to DesMoines for the weekend from KC and had a great time there. We checked out the downtown restaurants and drove to a couple of wineries in the area. Even went out to Norwalk to checkout a homemade distillery..definitely worth the trip -Double J's.
The apartment is the top floor of an old house and there's nothing really special about it. If you are a big and/or tall person the bathroom is a bit tight as it is in an old closet. I'm 6'1" and it had its challenges. We cooked breakfast there and instead of a stove top there's a hotplate. Microwave, coffee machine, and oven are all operational. It is winter here so we put the floor heaters to use. As a retired Firefighter I was ok with the fire station across the street. Thankfully the citizens didn't call them out too much.
Cute & friendly apartment - great for a small family!
We enjoyed our 1 night stay at the Sky House! Rachel was great to work with - she was very communicative and answered all my questions. The apartment was clean and cute, and was a nice, quiet, relaxing place to stay. Our 2 small kids enjoyed slept on the air mattress and futon and enjoyed playing with some of the games (Dominos, Monopoly, Pictionary) that Rachel left. The bed was comfortable and the amenities were very nice! We were in town for the State Fair, and Rachel even coordinated with us to give us 2 extra tickets she had! I would definitely recommend this apartment when you're in town!
Nice little apartment
The location was nice, right next to the airport and close to everything.
I loved this little apartment! It was everything we needed! It was so cute and cozy! We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for the review! I am glad you enjoyed the place. Best wishes!
Be sure to check out the Fleur, a unique cinema and cafe featuring independent films. It is a must-see afternoon or early evening treat.
Enjoy the ambiance and a great cup at Smokey Row, Des Moines' favorite coffee shop.
There are plenty of local restaurants worth your time near-by: try Skips, the Angry Goldfish, and Tumea & Sons.
Take a short walk east of the property for little-known Des Moines secret: the Southside Sculpture Park. There is also the better-known Des Moines sculpture park a quick drive downtown.
