We have been so impressed with The Fountain! We are moving from out of state. They accommodated everything we needed! We called a lot and asked quite a bit and they remained pleasant and helpful! I would recommend them to anyone!! Their units are nice and spacious! Can't say enough about them!! Thanks, Sarah and Bob!!!

You guys are not flexible in the touring time slot. The agent didnt even care like that even when I showed my concern that I like to see the place. Her answers to every question was a no or I dont know or its up to you.

The staff at The Fountains are amazing especially Sarah. Once I saw the apartment complex I knew this is where I wanted to live. The amenities are wonderful. This is my new home I can't wait to move in.

Property Details

The Fountains Apartments

The Fountains Apartments are located in prestigious West Des Moines, home to West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) one of the most desirable school districts in the state and recently ranked #4 on Money Magazine's list of the best places to live in the country.

We are in the perfect location, just off Interstate 35 near the I-80/I-235 mixer between Mills Civic and EP True Parkways; minutes from the area's largest shopping mall, Jordan Creek Town Center. There are plenty of nearby parks & trails, including Raccoon River Park which features an off-leash dog park (did we mention we're dog and cat friendly??).

There is a Hy-Vee grocery store just a couple of blocks away and there are tons of restaurants and shopping on 50th Street and near the mall. We are also just a couple of blocks off the express 96 bus route to downtown Des Moines.

With floor plans of all sizes to choose from, The Fountains Apartments is the perfect new home for you!
