About Joy Abbey-Adams

I have loved beautiful homes, gardens, travel and meeting people along the way! My experience living in beautiful homes and apartments in Europe opened me up to creating beauty, harmony, comfort inside and the serenity of beautiful views extending to the outside. I began teaching and spending summers gardening and restoring furniture. Sharing this property and Ravenna neighborhood is my passion.

Joy Abbey-Adams purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Joy Abbey-Adams chose Ravenna

I create beautiful environments and love to share them. Seattle and Whidbey Island are special places. The natural environments, large properties with the green of trees and shrubs, big sky and views everywhere but with the hush of privacy and quiet so perfect for a relaxing getaway feels like the perfect home away from home, As I shared homes in Europe as a student, so loving my homes and sharing them too seems natural and easy to me.

What makes this apartment unique

You will feel welcomed and at home in this friendly neighborhood, knowing that all is well! The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest creates the background for the simple elegance of the home away created for guests to enjoy the spacious, tree house comfort of this amazing apartment.

A lovely apartment in a superb location separate from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Walk to bus to downtown, parks, charming restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. I would definitely stay here again upon return to Seattle. Owner is simply lovely and hospitable.

The Ravenna View apartment provided a wonderful get-away & resting place for us.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfectly located in a quaint neighborhood and very close to University of Washington, University Village and downtown Seattle. Coffee shops and restaurants were within walking distance & absolutely everything was provided for us including laundry products to use in the washer and dryer, soaps, shampoo, coffee, everything you would find in a more expensive hotel room. Joy was a delight to meet. She was available to answer questions but also gave us complete privacy. We highly recommend the apartment but you had better make your reservation quickly; the place rents out fast. Robin Smith

good location in an average apartment

  • 3 of 5

My husband and 2 year old stayed in the apt for a 4 day sightseeing trip.

The location was great - we had our own car and found it very convenient. We found Seattle quite congested and busy, and it was nice to have quiet neighborhood to "escape" to, but still be within 15 minutes of Pike Place Market, etc. The apt is probably about 10 minutes from 5 freeway, just a couple exits north of Seattle Center, etc. It's in a nice, safe area (with a nice private school down the block) with plenty of restaurants and shops (near Whole Foods grocery store & Safeway) within a short driving distance.

The apartment itself was just kind of average. Liked the big tub, garden, and kitchen.

Didn't like that the bedroom is not completely closed off from the rest of the apartment. There is a door, but the wall does not go all the way to the ceiling - there is an open area of about 3 feet between the top of the wall and the ceiling. So, the bedroom is not closed off from sound from the rest of the apartment - tough when trying to put our daughter down early for bed.

The bed squeaked quite a bit - to the extent of waking us up when someone rolled over.

This is unusual for Seattle, but we visited in August, and the apartment was SO hot in the afternoon/evenings. Even with all the windows open, it was very warm. I found myself sweating every evening while trying to relax and watch TV. (Overnight, it cooled down so mornings were pleasant).

Finally, the apt lacked any kind of "directions." Washing machine didn't work without sticking a wooden rod against it to keep the door shut, but there was no signage- we didn't find out till the owner called us back 7 hours after we called. Couldn't get hot tub jets to work. There was a "welcome card" but it simply gave our bill and what to recycle - nothing about how to work anything in the apartment, local restaurants, etc. We would have loved that info, since we never met the owner.

Glad for the location and great price, but prob wouldn't choose apt again for us personally.

For a family with older children, or a single couple, visiting NOT in warm August, it would probably work out fine! The price was a LOT cheaper than any other lodging we could find in Seattle, so it would be worth it if you'll be out all day sightseeing - a good place to return to in the evenings.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that there were no instructions left for this young couple! We had a very hot August and the outdoor curtains needed to be closed over the windows and the extra step for the front loading washer. I am having the high ceiled opening between the bedroom and office closed to avoid sound travel between the two rooms. This will help parents with little ones going to bed early. I have fixed the squeak in the springs. There is a new, bigger flat screen TV to improve relaxing time after a busy day. I am glad that the guests enjoyed the beautiful garden, views and neighborhood, including our proximity to great grocery stores, cafes and restaurants!
