About Catherine Ryan

My husband and I love to travel. We also love to be home taking care of our cats and garden. Both Marc and I are University of Washington alumni, and met in Seattle. We also have a number of rental properties and are quite handy - no emergency scenario we can't take care of quickly means zero frustration for you!

Catherine Ryan purchased this house in 1986

Why Catherine Ryan chose West Queen Anne

Our house is a duplex and we keep our second apartment- where you will be staying - flexible for visiting relatives. This means we have taken great care with the furnishings, comfort and attention to details. It truly is a wonderful home.

What makes this house unique

We may be home in the other apartment, available if you need anything. But the apartments are entirely separate and private.

Very lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Catherine's place is truly lovely. We found the place very comfortable, beautifully furnished, the kitchen was stashed with thoughtful treats for our arrival, and the place has a great view onto the ocean - on top of that, Catherine was extremely helpful in accommodating all our requests for help. This is a gem of a place; highly recommended.

Quaint and charming in Queen Anne.

  • 4 of 5

We really loved this little apartment. There were four of us and there was plenty of space to spread out. There is an amazing CD collection with music from all genres, which is a rare treat. The view was lovely and the location is ideal, just minutes from everything. We used UBER a lot (although we rented a car too) and they found us easily. The only downside was it was a bit noisy being the lower apartment. You could hear walking around upstairs and it was pretty loud at times. Catherine is very nice and accommodating.

Beautiful view from porch

  • 5 of 5

My rating is really a 4 3/4...….The apartment is great. Clean, two bedrooms and fantastic bathroom with a HUGE tub and shower. Well stocked, great location. We Ubered all over Seattle and always a car there in less than 4 minutes and easy to get where ever we wanted. Nice to come back to after busy days in the city. The pastries were a special treat, the fridge stocked with yogurts, milk, coffee, tea cereal. Stayed in many VRBO's and this was a first with treats. My family loved the lemon/ginger bars. Suggestion for bath, a few hooks on the wall. With three people, only one towel bar or had to hang over shower. The reason for my 1/4 star reduction was the floor noise from above. I even wear ear plugs to bed and it was loud and we couldn't get to sleep. The floor noise in unit is bad too, but over head worse. Just an FYI the "climb" to the front door is steep (short, but steep) if you have bad knees. That being said, it is a lovely apartment, in a great neighborhood, easy accessibility and Catherine is very accommodating.

Owner's Response: I’m so sorry to hear that you couldn’t sleep! One downside of a vintage house - it creaks a bit. We have never had anyone say they couldn’t sleep before, though... we are early sleepers, so it must have been the younger, rambunctious cats along with usual old house sounds. Front access to the property is definitely a hill climb. We usually encourage guests to use the back entrance and park on 10th Ave. I will definitely install more bathroom hooks and appreciate the feedback.

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Two comfortable bedrooms with a large bathroom and kitchen. Perfect size for 4 adults. Located in a quiet and safe area in West Seattle. The owner was wonderful, very welcoming and supplied us with lots of yummy breakfast treats. We would definitely stay there again.

Queen Anne Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights in this gem, so can provide a well-informed review. This place is a lovely two mile walk from the Seattle Center, or a $10 Uber/Lyft ride to Pike's Market. Perfect location for ready access to the city, Ballard, Fremont, Magnolia and Queen Anne. At the same time, it's a surprisingly peaceful retreat. High on the hill, overlooking the sound, on a quiet residential street. The apartment is adorable and nicely appointed with everything you could possibly need. We loved it. Catherine was the perfect host: quick to respond to questions; full of good information of all...she provided delectable snacks and baked goods. We will definitely call this our home away from home when in Seattle.

Beautiful views, convenient location, accommodating host

We really enjoyed our time! The unit had everything we needed, thanks to a very thoughtful host. It is conveniently located, close to public transit. Queen Anne is a lovely area and the views from the home are wonderful.
