Relax in this darliing 3 bedroom brick home. It is within walking distance of the best Beaverdale locations. A grocery store is 3 blocks down the street. Nice neighborhood with lots of street appeal. The Franklin home is about 1/2 mile from Drake University campus.
2 deluxe bedrooms with queen beds, a 3rd bedroom upstairs with 2 twin beds and nice linens for up to 6 guests.
The living room has a gas fireplace with remote and tv/dvd. There is wireless for your use. The kitchen is well outfitted for cooking, there is a nice outdoor patio in the back yard. A two car garage with remote is included so you can keep your car snow free in winter. A washer and dryer in basement are included for your use.
Neighborhood is lovely and is very quiet. The host made sure I had everything I needed. She even left a charming welcome gift. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, utensils, and other thoughtful odds and ends (like an apron) that made it easy to cook meals, although I definitely missed having a dishwasher. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This is my third stay here in a year. Twice with my family for an annual conference, and once for a work conference with my coworkers. Wonderful house, well maintained, great communication with owner. I appreciate the personal note and coffee and treats offered upon arrival. MUCH better than staying at a hotel and for us it's actually saved us money vs staying in a hotel.
Warmly decorated and welcoming. Quiet neighborhood in a popular area of DM great for walking.great attention to detail by the owner. Cozy living room fireplace was great on rainy cold nights Clean and comfortable.
The stairs were very steep. This is not really a problem but it would have been good info to have for those of us with bad knees. Also my guys are sports fans. Please upgrade the cable programs available. The house was very nice. Thanks for the goodie bag.
Five friends checked in 10/30 and stayed four days. We had everything we needed in terms of space and supplies. The patio table is a great place for morning coffee and the living areas accommodated all of us for dining, cards, and conversation. The house is also in a quiet area that offers quick access to anywhere in Des Moines you wish to visit. This was so much better (and less expensive) than a hotel where we would not have have the privacy and the room to relax and reminisce. The owner has done a superb job of creating a charming rental property.
The location was good. The neighborhood is pretty and quiet. The house was well stocked with everything and more than we needed. Everything was clean and well-maintained throughout. We highly recommend this house if you're looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay at a reasonable rate. We all enjoyed exploring Des Moines and finding interesting things to do and good places to eat.

What a charming house and neighborhood! The place was tastefully decorated, very clean, and well-stocked with everything we needed for our Girls Weekend. The beds were comfortable and made up with quality linens. It's close to Drake University and a short drive to downtown, the Sculpture Garden and the East Village area -- all of which are worth visiting.
