"We spent 10 days in Seattle and absolutely loved it! The Portage Bay Guest Cottage was perfect. Pam was wonderful! The cottage is in a great location to catch a bus to downtown, or drive a car to explore. Pam had even found a portable air conditioner for the cottage because the temperatures in Seattle were higher than normal. We would love to go back and stay there again."

"Our second visit to this property was, again, a great experience! We made full use of the kitchen, BBQ and back yard, entertaining family and friends several nights in our three week stay. The location cannot be beat for visitors wanting the entire Seattle experience as we were close to all of the sights, shopping and great restaurants in the area. Ron was a most gracious host, making sure that in addition to providing top notch accommodations, he added a locals insight to must see and do activities. This place feels like your own home with great, green views outside and more amenities that any hotel. Thanks, Ron! Our only regret is we now have purchased a NW home of our own and will have to leave our spot here for someone else to discover. Highly recommended."

"I stayed in this cozy studio for two months this summer (2015). It is small but had everything I needed for my stay. I prepared most of my meals in the small, but well appointed kitchenette. With a microwave, a toaster oven and a great single cooking gizmo for boiling water or frying eggs, the only thing I couldn't prepare would be a large turkey. I would have to make that in the new large gas barbecue grill provided on the large patio.
The bathroom was clean and comfortable with a large stall shower and plenty of storage for my "stuff". The queen bed was very comfortable. With wifi and a TV, I had all the entertainment I needed.
An addition to the cottage was constructed while I was there (with my blessing). This provides a separate space if two people are occupying the space.
The neighborhood is very quiet and well maintained. It is convenient to UW, restaurants, shopping and the bus to downtown. I had a car for my stay, but the bus is two short blocks away.
I am a spunky Senior and I recommend the location very highly. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Best of all was the clear view of Mt. Rainer from the patio."

"This house is located in a very convenient spot, short distance to University village and short drive to downtown Seattle in 15 minutes. Parking was convenient, too. The owner is very friendly and responded every question clearly and quickly. The amenity is amazing, they have everything from cookware to seasonings. It's a pity that we didn't have time to cook there. My parents and I had a great time staying at this lovely house. Oh and of course, the view overlooking U village is beautiful!"
