About the Owner
I've been a vacation home renter for about three years and think I've gotten quite good at creating a nice comfortable environment for travelers to come home to while you're in Seattle.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks to Seth and his place in Seattle we had a great first Airbnb experience. He was very clear in all his details, forgiving of a rookie mistake of checking in too early, and the place was not only just a described but great. Plenty of room and bed. Good wireless coverage. A nice kitchen and bathrooms. Private parking. And convenient to some great spots in town. Right around the corner from some great restaurants that we were able to walk to. We had a great time!

Location, Location, and a Stunning House!
Amneties are nice. TV has only basic cable, so no ESPN or anything. Which is fine, we weren't really staying in the house other than to sleep. Kitchen appliances are nice.
Seth asked us to contact him when we got there and left. He never responded to those messages. He did respond to a problem with the garbage. So customer service was ok. One downside is that you can't check into the place till after 5 pm when you arrive-which I think is pretty late. Overall, for the price it's a good place to stay with friends and in a great location.
Great Accomodation and Location!
This is a great location close to restaurants and nice to walk around the neighborhood (walked to Gasworks park and the zoo (although the zoo was a long walk - which I didn't mind, but some may find it too far). It's close to downtown by cab or car.
House is perfect as a place to come back to after a day of sightseeing.
Things to note:
- great for breakfast and getting organized in the morning and coming home to at night; if you plan to do cooking there is limited dining space and you may have to contact Seth if you require any utensils - we noticed some utensils/appliances were not available (there were limited cooking utensils - no spatula, cutting boards, dull knives; would have been nice to have a coffee maker and a toaster) but I'm sure Seth would have gotten anything to us if we had asked - we didn't bother as we were only there for mornings and coming home late.
- two of the bedrooms were on the basement/walkout floor; the front bedroom has a sliding glass walkout door - so if you are not use to the inner city you may feel a bit uncomfortable (as someone who lives in the inner-city, I did not feel unsafe and really liked the neighborhood but others family members had to get use to that and were initially feeling a bit anxious; the 3rd bedroom on the top floor was great with a very nice bathroom and shower)
- the floor on this home is cement - very contemporary, but not for me. Seth has other homes with hardwood floors - I just didn't book accommodations in time to get one of those
- beds are a single mattress and low to the floor - so may be difficult for some getting into and out of and may not feel as comfortable is a regular bed
- TV cable wasn't set up when we got there but Seth had the box sent over and it was really easy to set up
Other than that - the home was great and we really enjoyed our stay. If we ever need a place in Seattle again we will definitely be looking up Seth's properties!
Nice Wallingford home, with close proximity to all the charming places of north Seattle
Shopping, sightseeing and strolling around the neighborhood or to Gas Works Park, was easy, as was getting to/from the city center and the airport. The spacious house allowed for friends and family to stay, and for us to feel almost like home. We would recommend this, both the area and the house.
Fun location... once we located it
They called Seth who told them they must have gone to the wrong location and wasn't really terribly helpful. He eventually called them back with the correct address and a different lock box code - but even then didn't seem too troubled that he'd sent people to the wrong location with other guests already there and didn't offer to help my brother and sister find the correct place. As a small business owner myself, I would have been profusely apologetic and been anxious to correct my mistake with people who were wandering around a new neighborhood at midnight with their luggage after their cab took off.
Regardless, he didn't. (Thanks! I got to smooth that over the next day when I was harangued by my siblings for my lodging choice.) But they found the right location that had no other guests and the condo itself was great. Very nicely appointed, great location. We walked all over the Fremont area, down to Gasworks park, to the local brewery, the coffee shop. Even the Theo chocolate shop for a tour.
So, overall, a good stay and a good rental choice. I'd recommend it... Just double/triple check your information before you arrive and have a map handy.
