The Space

We remolded the home in 2015 all while maintaining the historical integrity (original woodwork with wood floors throughout). The house features updated bathrooms, updated lighting, fresh paint throughout, a spruced up kitchen, as well as new drywall. The main level has 2 bedrooms (both with queen size beds), 1 bathroom, the kitchen, a dining area, a large family room, and a front porch. We finished the attic and made it into a master suite. The upstairs attic is spacious and has 2 full size beds, so it's also a great place for kids to sleep. The space is large and has a beautiful walk in closet as well as a bathroom. NOTE - The height of the ceiling in the attic is low in some areas. We have a queen size air mattress available (stored in the upstairs walk-in closet) for use. We have done our best to make the house child friendly. The house has toys, children's books, and games. In the basement, we have a high chair, pack and play, diaper changing pad, bumbo seat, infant bath tub, boppy pillow, and infant swing. Feel free to use these for your kids, and please store them back in the basement when you are finished. The backyard is fenced and has a table and chairs. There is also a charcoal grill for you to use.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the whole home as well as the fenced in back yard. The basement is unfinished, but that is where the washer & dryer are located, and you are free to use them if needed. The two car garage is used for farm items, so please do not park your car in the garage. The drive way is good sized and can fit multiple cars. Use the back door to enter/exit the home.

Interaction with Guests

We live less than 3 blocks away from the Urban Farm Stay and will be easily available if need be.

Getting Around

We are roughly a five minute drive from the Merle Hay Road exit off of I-80. This location makes it convenient to get to just about anywhere in Des Moines in 20 minutes or less.

Other Things to Note

This is a very unique property, as my urban farm, Dogpatch Urban Gardens is on the land. The farm is in operation from March - November. During your stay you may see me (and my employees) working in the fields. We also have an on-site FarmStand which is essentially a locally sourced grocery store. The FarmStand is open from May-November. Customers coming to the FarmStand will not interfere with you at the house as they use the church parking lot and enter using the driveway behind the house. You are more than welcome to shop at the FarmStand and support the booming local foods scene in the Des Moines area!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
