Great base from which to explore the city - especially with kids.
There was a large and well stocked kitchen, as well as a grill. We didn't use either much, choosing instead to walk to the many fabulous restaurants within 1-2 blocks.
This was a great place for a family with kids. There were lots of toys for our almost-three year old to discover, as well as a playground a few blocks away, and of course the water and a pocket park just down the hill to watch boats from. The owner also worked with us and let us stay until after nap time - this is very important when you have little ones, and we appreciated it very much.
The unit itself does feel a bit run down- in need of some tlc (changing lightbulbs, gluing down edges of flooring, fixing a blind that had fallen and been held up with duct tape, tightening chair legs), but that didn't decrease what was great about it.
What is great is that it's in a wonderful location, there is a parking space, there are lots of busses headed down towards downtown or up towards the UW. Parking is tight in the area- so we mostly just parked and then walked or bussed where we wanted to go.
Also, and this didn't figure into my star rating, the last night we were there, there was some sort of party (or after-party) next door with lots of yelling and loud music- lasting from about 2am until almost 4am. Combined with the sea planes during the day, I would not call this a quiet retreat, though it was a fun urban vacation for the family!
