Perfect On Every Level
Perfect On Every Level
As the title states, these accommodations were perfect on every level! Jim and Ellen are the most gracious people I have ever met and they have thought of every little detail a traveler could want or need. This apartment is perfectly situated within 10 minutes or so from downtown and just minutes from the beach. The weather in November was awesome, so we were able to enjoy the terrace too when we were there. Just so relaxing! While this was a much needed vacation for myself, it was my son's dream to go to Seattle. I have to say that the Urban Oasis sealed the deal for him! He can't wait to get back out there. There will be future visits to Seattle for sure, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed the Urban Oasis will be available. Staying elsewhere just wouldn't be the same!! Thank you both for sharing your wonderful oasis with us. Lisa & Kamron Eiland

This was our first visit to Seattle and we were so lucky to find this wonderful vacation rental. When I was searching for just the right place, this home appealed to me because it was beautifully decorated and very reasonably priced. When we arrived, everything exceeded our expectations. The interior looked just like the pictures online and all the rooms were immaculate and very clean. It was also so convenient to Alki Beach and downtown Seattle. We also sent our itinerary to Ellen before we arrived and she gave us great recommendations on what to do and where to eat. If you have plans to visit Seattle, this is definitely the place to stay. We will always have great memories of Seattle and staying at the Urban Oasis.

You've gotta stay here!

If you are even remotely considering a stay at the Urban Oasis, and it happens to be available, please just book it! The apartment is comfortable, large, in a great location, with absolutely everything you could need. The rooms are furnished beautifully, with super comfy beds and you can tell a lot of care and thought has gone into the decorations. In terms of location, it's within a few minutes of the beach, some great restaurants and not far from the city centre either. Ellen is an excellent host, coming to see us within a short while of "checking in" and giving us advice on what we were looking for. In terms of cost, it was also the best deal we could find for what we were looking for (2 bedrooms). We would absolutely stay here again! T

The Urban Oasis is even more beautiful than captured in the photos. The space was immaculate and the decor exemplifies charm. We were delighted with all the little touches, from the guava-ginseng tea and madeleine cookies to the massive collection of travel magazines. The owners really put a lot of thought into making the place comfortable and stress-free for their guests, providing all the essentials and beyond. They were also very welcoming and responsive. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood and proximity to the downtown area by car. Bakery Nouveau and Alki Beach, which are within very close driving distance, are not to be missed. I hope to return someday!

Our Favorite Seattle Rental
OUR FAVORITE SEATTLE RENTAL! Urban Oasis is the first rental we seek out when coming to Seattle! It is located in a quiet neighborhood in West Seattle overlooking Elliot Bay and the city. We love driving in to their off-street parking and very much enjoy the lovely yard and garden area as we walk to our apartment entrance. Ellen and Jim have created such a pleasant space … bright, comfy, very clean, with plenty of room to spread out. We were especially impressed and pleased with how comfortable the bed was. Meeting Ellen and Jim is just the cherry on top of this wonderful rental discovery. They are such warm cheerful folks. Urban Oasis is definitely a place we’d recommend to our family and friends.

My son and I flew up from Huntington Beach, CA to catch a Seahawk and Mariner Game for week to surprise my mother on her 75th BD. What a surprise!!! We had an excellent time with each other and the family, I was great being so close to downtown stadiums and a 15 minute ride to moms house. Growing up in Seattle, this was the perfect location and comfortable setting we needed, easy to park, the beds....were so comfortable. Everything we needed, just like home and big enough for Dad and a teenager. Thanks for a great stay...we will be back!

definitely an oasis

My son and I stayed for two nights and it was a very comfortable and beautifully decorated place. The kitchen had everything we needed. We played scrabble and card at the kitchen table and most of all enjoyed the comfortable beds. It was great having shampoo and a hair dryer so we didn't have to travel with those. I would definitely stay there again. The backyard is breathtaking.

Owner response: Susan, I'm so glad you had everything you needed and wanted. We'd love to have you back the next time you're in Seattle!!! Thanks so much, Ellen & Jim
Urban Oasis was delightful for me, my wife and our 3 daughters. We were traveling for lots of days and our daughters settled in like it was home, unlike they do when we stay in a hotel. The place was super clean! Ellen (we never met Jim) was as helpful and welcoming as could be. Getting in and checking out were a total breeze. West Seattle is very convenient to Alki Beach which turned out to be one of our favorite spots in all of Seattle. And, Luna Cafe which is right around the corner has some of the best burgers and shakes we have ever had. I would recommend Urban Oasis unconditionally.

We absolutely loved our stay at Urban Oasis! My husband was initially wary of staying in a space other than a hotel, but was thrilled when he walked into the clean, beautiful spacious apartment. The neighborhood was nice and the location is convenient. We would highly recommend Urban Oasis to our family and friends and look forward to returning next time we visit the Seattle area. Thank you Ellen and Jim! Jennifer and Robert
