Recent Seattle reviews

  • Wonderful location...

    "We were in Seattle for 2 family weddings. The location was great for sightseeing, in the middle of everything. Really wonderful for various family members to hang out and see each other. Condo was clean, well furnished and comfortable. The building was secure and food/meals/bodega just steps away. No air conditioning was not a problem, except that the open windows made for loud nights because of the lively urban setting. We were disappointed that there were so many broken items...2 of 3 lamps didn't work or were falling apart. Half the bulbs in high ceilings were burned out, the upstairs ceiling fan was broken, the upstairs clock radio is broken (time can't be set), no cover for the exhaust fan in the upstairs bath. While each issue was small, taken together it was mighty irritating for the price of the condo and the poor lighting after dark. If you wanted to read, it was nearly impossible. We'd stay here again for sure, but would call the on-site lady and complain if the same problems persisted."

  • Great place to stay in Capitol Hill!

    "My colleagues and I needed a place to stay and found the Turret House. It was the perfect place for us because our meetings were in the Capitol Hill area and we were able to walk to meetings and to great eateries, the Coop and other local attractions. The house was very comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed having coffee and breakfast there in the morning and walking around the neighborhoods. I highly recommend this place if you are visiting Seattle. Just a short cab ride to downtown or a 20 minute walk. Charming!"

  • Tie Dye Wedding

    "We planned our wedding for over a year and found Joy and her boat and had to have it! We wanted a low key fun day and nothing traditional. This boat and Joy definitely fit the bill. We invited our family and very close friends and several had small children. There was a little something for everyone. The view of Seattle from the water was spectacular and the people who traveled from far away were in total awe. The kids loved the hot tub and the adults made total fools of themselves going down the slide! My new husband and and I remained on the boat for the most romantic evening we had ever imagined. Nothing like a hot tub at midnight in the rain. It was so awesome and everyone enjoyed themselves. Joy made every one feel welcome and was quite the entertainer. Burlap and lace and tie dye attire with the coolest music ever made for the most special wedding ever! Joy definitely got her groove back!"

  • Great home, great location, great owners!

    "This is a great house and accommodated our group of 8 very nicely. Andrew and Sarah are great hosts. Their home is very comfortable. It was great to have a full service kitchen, back porch for morning coffee, four bedrooms, and computer and printer to print boarding passes. It had everything we needed and then some. Parking in the driveway is tight, but it was great to have parking. The only thing that we all agreed upon was that the recycling was a hassle. We come from a place where we have single stream recycling so we found most of our stress came from trying to figure out where each item was supposed to go. Sarah stated they could be fined if anything recycled went into the trash so we had that stress hanging over us all week. The recycling drove us a little crazy, but we survived! I would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the Seattle area. It's within walking distance to University Village and a park so the location was great. A drive to downtown was 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. If you stay here, take exit 170 off the I5 North, not 168 as the GPS and directions will tell you. Exit 168 gets backed up often, but Exit 170 never had an issue. It was much faster and didn't have the traffic. If I'm ever in the Seattle Area again, this will be the house I choose to rent."

Seattle Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Seattle Vacation Rentals

Seattle is known for its high amount of rainfall. In fact, statistically it rains at least half of the time. The heaviest rains occur during the months of October and December, and between January and May. The summer months of June through August are the driest and also have the warmest daytime temperatures. For obvious reasons, this is the most popular time of year for people to visit Seattle. Even though the city experiences a lot of rainfall, the climate is relatively mild compared to other North American cities on the same latitude. Although the winter months are cold, snow occurs only occasionally and usually does not last for more than a day or two. For visitors, it is advisable to always have a rain jacket with you as the weather is very changeable.
