Guestbook comments from the owner


Urban Oasis is the first rental we seek out when coming to Seattle! It is located in a quiet neighborhood in West Seattle overlooking Elliot Bay and the city. We love driving in to their off-street parking and very much enjoy the lovely yard and garden area as we walk to our apartment entrance. Ellen and Jim have created such a pleasant space … bright, comfy, very clean, with plenty of room to spread out. We were especially impressed and pleased with how comfortable the bed was. Meeting Ellen and Jim is just the cherry on top of this wonderful rental discovery. They are such warm cheerful folks. Urban Oasis is definitely a place we’d recommend to our family and friends.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable, well equipped apartment - we had a short stay, but could have easily stayed a week or longer - the washer/dryer is great - the kitchen is well equipped to do regular cooking if you want. Ellen is very personable and professional. We would definitely stay there again.

It was perfect...

  • 5 of 5

My kids (13 and 15 yrs old) and I stayed here for three nights. It was the end of our Olympic National Park adventure. This place was restful, so quiet and peaceful. Wifi was strong, well-stocked kitchen. There's a gas grill that we used to grill chicken. We drove to Alki beach one night and walked. My kids were completely comfortable and wanted to lounge around more. Thank you, Ellen and Jim, for sharing your wonderful home!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Urban Oasis had everything we needed for a comfortable weekend in Seattle. It had a great location to get to almost anywhere - from Pikes Place, to Bellevue, to Mt. Rainier. We would definitely stay here - especially for extended stays, this place is the perfect home away from home.
