    What guests are saying:

    “This home was perfectly located near a private university meaning there were many restaurants and cafes nearby. The home had great streaming services and Danielle was extremely accommodating with our needs and flight times. My wife and I will stay again when visiting our family in Iowa. This is a glowing review! Thank you Danielle!”

    Private Room in Modern Townhome

    A private bedroom with full size bed that can sleep up to two. Private bathroom next to the bedroom. Free to use the kitchen and utensils, however I ask that you remember this is a shared space and not make the kitchen your primary hangout. You would be sharing the space with me and my dog, a two year old black lab mix.

    A Beautiful Home Near Downtown

    Welcome! My home is in the perfect location just minutes from Downtown/East Village, blocks from Des Moines' biggest park, river and trail system. The whole house has been beautifully renovated. I have two spacious, private guest rooms that I book independently. Modern amenities, including a large flatscreen with Roku, Amazon Echo, Nest, high speed wifi and lots more. Tons of space outside featuring a fenced-in back yard and patio, and a large porch with ample natural light and relaxing sunroom.

    What guests are saying:

    “I flew into Des Moines to do some canvassing before the caucuses, and Tanner's place was a quiet, convenient, affordable place to rest my head after long hours walking around the Beaverdale neighborhood. Tanner was home when I checked in, and he gave me a quick tour of the house. Tanner is super nice and welcoming, I felt right at home. Also, the bed was very comfortable. I'd stay at Tanner's again, for sure.”
