About Aaron and Natalie
We love to host new friends at our home. It's important to us that our properties are ready for our guests in a high-standard of cleanliness. We believe in the golden rule and the house will be professionally cleaned prior to your stay. Our home, our neighbors, and our neighborhood are important to us so we invite guests who will be good stewards of our home and courteous to our neighbors. Natalie was born and raised in the greater Des Moines area. Aaron is a converted Californian. We love to travel and believe that the vacation rental is the way to go, when you have a family. Everyone sleeps better and it's great to have the option to eat in, rather than always eat out, as in the case with a hotel. We love art and eclectic textiles and linens. We have high standards and keep our home up to this standard. We like beautiful, nice things and believe that our environment effects how we feel and think. Beautiful finishes and nice, functional items makes for a great experience. We think you'll agree. We hope you'll come stay at our place and make great memories. Then come back again! We have been blessed with great things in this life and are happy to share.
Why Aaron and Natalie chose Ankeny
This house is unique. It's an old Victorian which was built in 1890 but was taken down to studs and remodeled in the 1980's. When we purchased it, the house was in great shape but needed an interior face lift. There are a couple of art based businesses attached to the main level of the home (Photographer, Art Gallery, musician) which have private, separate entrances. The tenants are very quiet, you won't even know they're there but it adds to the unique nature of this property. The back of the house, which is the residence, is very private and was remodeled in 2014/2015. We used the best materials and finishes we could afford. The spa house is exceptional and so fun and private. We purchased this house for it's walkability to nice parks, a pond, biking trails, local bars, the farmer's market, restaurants, the library, and more. The grocery store is a 5 minute drive. It's a very convenient location.
What makes this House unique
You'll love the oversized, indoor spa/hot tub. Our kids love it. They call it our pool. We love it because it's private and so luxurious but also detached from our main house and therefore, we can lock it and feel safe with our little ones close by. The backyard has a great deck with a gas grill, which we really enjoy during the warm months. Mature trees give the back some shade but our kids love to explore and roam around the back yard. It's fully fenced with privacy fence so it's a great place for them to run around. We've taken great lengths to put a lot of great art and eclectic furniture in the house. We think you'll enjoy this part of the property. It's a very functional house and has a great flow. It's also beautiful and bright.
