“Perfect stay in Seattle.”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I read all the reviews on this vacation rental and it sounded like the perfect fit for our needs. We experienced for ourselves the wonderful hosts Larry and Suzi. They made our stay wonderful and helped us understand getting around Seattle without a vehicle. I loved sitting in the patio area. The apartment had everything we needed. It is in a great location to catch city transportation into the city. We will definetly recommend this rental.

“Quiet, convenient, well equipped, owner occupied clean studio”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a 1/2 basement apartment, like one I lived in many years ago in a complex. Ceilings are low; not for tall folks because of the construction. Equipped with drip and French press coffee makers, 1/2 & 1/2 creamer, popcorn, access to a washer and dryer, linens and towels, hairdryer, and more. Landlord is friendly and talkative, works hard to ensure a pleasant stay. Provided good directions and even bus passes (cheaper than cash) to purchase for trips. Very close to public transportation, but also has parking on the property. Separate entrance with secure lock; neighborhood looked and felt safe. Has a wall between the queen bed and the sofa bed/tv but they are not separate rooms. Kitchen and bath complete the space. There are 5 steps but easily navigated after knee repalcements.

Cannot praise the hosts, Larry and Suzi, enough. Everything was spot on and the apartment was comfortable, clean and relaxing (needed after long flight!). Was great being able to get buses or walk instead of driving. The best thing about it were Larrys tips on getting about, restaurants, the beers & the tickets that he helped us with. That definitely went above the call of duty! Lovely home and lovely hosts.

We stayed 10 days and really got to know both local area and the downtown areas well. Great little coffee shop in local shopping area called Polar Bear Cafe. Nearest bus stop only 3-4 minutes away. Larry will help with any information / questions you may have. Great neighborhood. We walked all over the area. A great little gift shop is on the grounds of the Episcopalian church on 10th Avenue approximately 1 kilometer from the home. We highly recommended this great guest home.

“Great value for a Seattle stay”
Reviewed September 9, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

This accommodation is a self-contained flat under the owner's house in Capitol Hill, a lovely part of Seattle not too far from the CBD area. We were in Seattle for 3 nights and found it to be an excellent and cost effective base for seeing the Seattle sights.

The flat is very comfortable and exceptionally well appointed. There are a few steps down into the flat from an external side door but they're not a problem to negotiate. The bedroom area is partitioned off from the living area but it works quite well. The bedroom has a magnificent brass bed with separate bedside tables and lamps. The kitchen is a full kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The owner also permits guests to use the adjacent laundry. There is also very good internet wi-fi access. Everything is scrupulously clean, with good quality linen and also lots of hanging space if you want to unpack the bags.

The flat is only 2 minutes walk from a bus straight into the downtown area, which is quite frequent on weekdays and Saturdays, but much less so on Sundays. It's about a 15-20 minute bus ride for $2.75 or $1 if you're a senior. The location is also not too far from the University of Washington so if you were visiting the university for a period, it would be quite a good location.

The owners - Larry and Suzi - are very helpful and accommodating. All in all, we had a most enjoyable stay here. Happy to recommend it to any couple looking for a top value stay in good quality accommodation.

Hosts were very helpful. We were fully informed as to how everything worked and amenities provided by hosts. Location is in an old part of Seattle with narrow streets and tight parking on the streets. However, very manageable. Off street parking was provided. Neighborhood is quiet. Walking and biking excellent for young adults. I would have difficulty walking and biking because of hills being part of the terrain. It is a quaint vintage home very well cared for and living area in apartment is arranged comfortably. I would definitely rebook another vacation stay at this location.

This home is in a beautiful and very safe area of Seattle with lots of things to do around the neighbourhood. Larry and Suzi were very gracious and knowledgeable hosts. Suzi let us use prepaid bus fare so we wouldn't have to worry about having exact change to take public transportation and Larry was always available to answer any questions we might have and also to give us all kinds of great ideas to enjoy our stay. The house had everything we might possibly need even stocking great microbrews to enjoy at the end of the day. We loved the place and the owners, thank you for making our stay quite enjoyable
