Why Susan Kern chose Des Moines

Very quiet safe location. Near bike trail where you can access over 65 miles of trail. Merle Hay Mall is about 2 miles away. Franklin Library and Senior Center is about 1 mile away. Farmers market in Beaverdale occurs ever Tuesday night in summer. Valley Junction farmers market is on Thursdays and Saturday morning has the largest market downtown on court avenue.

My home is in the NW Des Moines area with easy access to I-80 and I-35. Within 2 miles you will find the Merle Hay Mall and just about every type of franchise fast food restaurants known to me. It is not wheelchair accessible and has a lot of stairs. As you can see from the pictures there is a small front deck facing East and larger Deck off dining room in the back of the house. The deck is completely shaded by a large maple tree and is almost a full story off the ground. Wooden staircase leads to the back yard. The back yard is fenced and large with huge maple trees shading the yard and deck.

Local Beaverdale farmer's market is about 2 miles away on Tuesday night during the summer. Valley Junction features antique shops, restaurants, local gift, clothing and bead shops and art galleries.

During the summer the large Saturday Court Avenue market is downtown and was featured as one of the best in the nation in a national culinary magazine.

Downtown is 5 minutes away using I235.

charming house, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We traveled in from Texas, only to learn that our property in Texas was in the direct path of the hurricane. The owner was compassionate and caring and willing to let us stay longer or leave early. We loved her home, it was clean and comfortable and the back yard deck made me long to return to Des Moines. I would recommend this house highly. Wonderful neighborhood and great location. The next time we visit we will book in here again. Thanks for making a difficult time in our lives a bit easier.

Charming and Homey

  • 4 of 5

Charming and homey 3 bedroom/2 Bathroom home. Living room, dining room and kitchen are all one combined to give an open feel. I didn't use the deck but it was charming and inviting and I would have loved to use it had I been at the home longer. Home was nice and cool and clean upon entry. Only bit of feedback was there seemed to be more furniture and dishes than really seemed necessary. I prefer less is more mentality, but that's a minor thing.

Everything we could have expected and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculately maintained. It has all the amenities of home. With two bathrooms, it was more than adequate to comfortably house five adults. The location is in a convenient, quiet neighborhood. None of us had any complaints. We were all quite pleased with our choice, and we will try to rent it again on our next visit to Des Moines.
