Great accomodations and fantastic location to boot
We were here for our sister and our aunts commitment / wedding to her partner. Their ceremony was fabulous and our stay in this apartment was equally fabulous. Coming from Montana it was great to hear the birds chirping in the morning and see green grass upon our early morning departures. This home is in a great location with easy walking to restaurants and parks. We also took a morning stroll to see the Fremont Troll. Great accommodations and fantastic location to boot. Thanks for having us.

The house was a great place to stay!
We are here to visit Danielle who is trying for her P.H.D. in chemistry from the University of Washington. We visited Whidbey Island and rode on a ferry. We went on a cruise on the Argosy Good Time!!! We also took in a variety show at Hales. We also toured a chocolate factory named Theo. The house was a great place to stay and we enjoyed our stay.

3-month stay over summer 2013
The listing and photos are accurate. The apartment was clean and well-equipped. Scott is a very accommodating and responsive owner. The apartment was pleasant, informal, with great natural light and through breezes. With a couple of fans Scott provided air-conditioning was not needed all summer. The location is super, very near the zoo and within easy walking of a number of eateries, coffee shops, and a small market, plus one block away from Aurora freeway which can whiz you downtown in 10 minutes (not during rush hour). The kitchen and bath are rather small, but Scott created the most functionality in the space he had to work with. For 2 adults this is ideal for a few days, weeks, and even months. Probably a couple of children could be there as well up to a week or two.

Cozy home for us!
We are here this week to enjoy the cool Seattle weather and visit with family and friends. This house has been a cozy home for us! We enjoyed walking to the park, coffee, dinner, the zoo, etc. during our stay. We loved the location so easy to access downtown where we enjoyed the market, a baseball game and many other activities. Thanks for a great stay!

Charming comfortable floor plan and location in a quiet, upscale historic neighborhood very close to downtown Seattle. Proximity to the Fremont waterfront, Woodland Park Zoo and recreation area, Green Lake, the University of Washington, Wallingford, Queen Anne and many local restaurant and amenities. Easy access to all significant neighborhoods just north of downtown.
