    Beaverdale Brick Retreat

    Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) Private, secluded, yet close to lots of stuff. Lots of color and fun decor. Short drive to Drake and DMU: One full bed, one single day bed, private bathroom, wifi, smart TV with Netflix, and Hulu, cozy electric fireplace, exclusive access to laundry room and screened porch, compact fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker and wine on request, quirky charm, your own entrance and "sitting porch." Following all cleaning protocols to help us both stay safe!

    What guests are saying:

    “We were in town from Brooklyn to canvas for our main man, Bernard Sanders, and needed a place to sleep. Jennie's en suite was an ideal place for our visit. It was a quick trip to where we needed to be. The bed was super comfortable, ideal for catching up on rest after eight-hour long canvassing shifts where we walked upward of eight miles! Jennie also had a really well-stocked bathroom: toothpaste, aleve, allergy medicine, etc (in my experience, many hosts overlook these little details). The space was also very clean, and my partner, who is allergic to cats, didn't suffer any symptoms while there. Finally, Jennie was really friendly and responsive, and her three cats were so cute! In all, a great place to spend a couple of days.”

    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!”

    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.”
