Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Comfortable, clean and thoughtful!

  • 5 of 5

Leslie is the quintessential hostess with a comfortable and clean house. Centrally located and full of thoughtful details, she made being away from home for the holidays just like being home for the holidays! We appreciate all the little details and will be back! Thank you!

What a great rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a high-quality rental in a nice neighborhood at a distinctly fair price. The photos accurately represent the quality, layout, and furnishings of the home. Beds were comfy, plenty of hot water, all was as stated in the ad and even better in many respects.

Communication with the owner was excellent, home was spotlessly clean, well-furnished, - no complaints AT ALL and I am a particular person who likes to complain.

Just a few observations (which in no way are complaints - just observations that might help future renters):

The yard is very, very small especially if you have children who want to play outside. Backyard has a small patio and a very small grassy area. The front lawn is small and has a steep slope down to the street.

The kitchen is on the small side. It is totally usable and is well-stocked but it is very narrow.

The washer/dryer is located in the basement so if it is difficult for you to navigate stairs, this might be a problem. Washer and dryer appear to be brand new and work like a dream.

If I am ever in Des Moines again I would never stay anywhere else but this rental even if just for one night. It is truly a gem.

Cozy, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 6 days with my husband and sister while in town for a family wedding. It was one of our better decisions. The house is an oasis. It is nicely equipped, absolutely spotless and all of the beds worth fighting over. Leslie is a gracious landlord who provided clear instructions about the house and welcomed us with local coffee and sweet treats. You will not regret booking this Beaverdale Brick.
