Recent West Seattle reviews
Feels like a home
"My family (myself, wife, and our 2yr old) and I are wrapping up a 3 month stay at the Urban Oasis and we could not be more pleased with our experience. We recently moved back to the Seattle area and needed a temporary place to stay until our new apartment became available. We are so happy to have found this place. The location is perfect. Just a short drive (maybe 5mins; or $10-15 cab ride) to downtown Seattle but also close to other area attractions like Alki Beach (a must in the spring and summer) and hip California Ave in West Seattle with plenty of great restaurants, bars, markets, and shopping. Or, take a quick ferry ride to Vashon Island for a little more nature. The airport is also an easy 15 min ride away and avoids all the downtown traffic. The apartment is tastefully decorated and has felt like a true home during our stay. The garden surrounding the beautifully restored craftsmen is in full bloom and is quite a site (kudos Jim). The neighborhood offers quiet streets for walking with some stunning views of the Seattle skyline. The owners, Jim and Ellen, are wonderful hosts (and people) and make themselves readily available for anything you may need. Bottom line, the apartment is spacious, comfortable, clean, and in a great location. We would (and will) recommend the Urban Oasis to anyone coming to stay Seattle. We would also recommend it to any locals needing some temporary digs. Thank you Jim and Ellen!"

"We were so pleased from our first steps inside the front door - the house could not have been better suited for our family gathering. From my five year old nephew to my 92 year old mother, the accommodations were exactly what we wanted. With a large bedroom and bath on the main floor, there were no stairs for Mom to negotiate. And with lots and lots of space to play, our little guy could spread his Legos however he wanted. There wasn't one thing we needed that we didn't find in the well stocked kitchen. The bedrooms were quiet, and removed from the main living areas, with beds that were very comfy. I can't say enough about the owners - friendly, available when we had questions, and always helpful. Shopping and restaurants near, plenty of parking - there just wasn't anything else we could have wanted. It was the perfect house for our family to celebrate a wedding and gather for meals and catching up. Thanks Alex and Lisa - we loved our stay. Even the weather was perfect!"

"Jamie was very helpful before we even arrived. Once there, we had all we needed for a great stay. The location is wonderful at a block from Alki Beach where the usual beach amenities are found including restaurants, bike rentals, sand volleyball, fire pits, great views and general fun. Getting over to downtown was very easy as well. The house was wonderfully comfortable and the kids loved the games and movies in the basement at night after being out and about all day. The kitchen has everything you need. Bedrooms and baths are spacious and extremely comfortable. Take time to explore the neighborhood including Lincoln Park and The Husky Deli to south and Marination MaKai facing downtown on the wharf. A great visit all around--highly recommended."
