traveler reviews for this seattle house rental

Perfect for feeling like a local!

Review submitted: August 6, 2014   Date of arrival: May 10, 2014

My wife and I stayed here while in town for a wedding/vacation. The location is great - close enough to get to everything, but quiet enough not to get overwhelmed. The owners are wonderful, the apartment is charming and clean, and having laundry in the unit made it easier to enjoy our trip without having to waste a day at the laundromat. Having a kitchen let us really enjoy the great produce and seafood the Northwest has to offer. Having a grill in the yard was a nice treat, as was being able to unwind in front of the TV now and then. It really let us feel like locals while we were there. We'll definitely stay there again next time we're in town, and would recommend it to anyone visiting Seattle!

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Perfect hidden gem in Northern Ballard

Review submitted: June 27, 2014   Date of arrival: June 20, 2014

The property was great and the owners were very prompt with their responses to my emails/texts and provided great customer service. When we arrived there was ample parking available. The apartment was clean and updated, stocked with anything and everything we would need while staying in Seattle, including umbrellas and soft fuzzy, bathrobes. Instructions were clearly labeled throughout the apartment. The place was also very child/baby friendly and we had access to toys, bedding, baby toiletries, and wonderful books for baby's bedtime. They also had a beautifully kept back yard with places to sit and relax and a garden full of fresh raspberries and snow peas on vines. The hot tub was also easy to use and perfect for the cool Seattle nights. There were also 2 child friendly parks down the street from the house. The main bedroom was really comfortable and private and was separated from the rest of apartment by a thick curtain so we had to be mindful about our noise level when the baby was sleeping. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends or relatives looking for a safe neighborhood and beautiful place to stay.

Owners response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again in the future. -Melissa and Brian
