The landlady, Joy, was really friendly and kind. We enjoyed staying in a quiet residential area. Many nice restaurants within the walk distance.

Our stay is very pleasant and relaxing.

This is our 3rd visit and longest stay to Seattle. So, we decide to stay at Airbnb and also the first time to try the Airbnb as well. The Revenna Studio is located at a very quiet neighborhood with walking distance to bus stops, restaurants and grocery stores. The studio itself is very nice decorated with a small living room at entrance. Bathroom and kitchen are equipped with all the essential needs. The ground is beautiful. I can imagine myself doing BBQ during the summer time here. The studio is close to UW with 5-10 minutes drive to UW campus and University Village. The nearby Warren Magnuson Park is a must visit destination which is only 10-minute drive and is right beside the Lake of Washington.

Our landlady, Joy, a local resident and a very friendly and nice lady. She gives me some tips and backgrounds about the neighborhood which is very helpful. Overall, my wife and myself like the stay. The peaceful community and convenient location will lure us to come back again.

Nice private studio flat (with deck area) within walking distance of good restaurants and coffee shops. The Ravenna neighborhood is beautiful to walk around and is family friendly.

The flat is very clean and has everything needed for an extended stay.

Joy is approachable, friendly and accommodating. Great place to stay!

My husband and I stayed in Joy's studio apartment for 12 nights while visiting our daughter and her family for Christmas. It was perfect for us as it is within walking distance of our daughter's home. The apartment is well equipped. The kitchen is small but was ok for us as we were only interested in being able to have our morning coffee. The apt is very clean and quiet and is in a great location. Very walkable neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again.

A view of Mt Rainier, on a clear day.

  • 5 of 5

I should have written this review months ago, and I apologize to Joy for not doing so sooner.

Yes, it was small and could have used updating but I knew from the pictures it was not the Ritz. It was clean, warm and dry, and efficient. It had everything we needed (minus the food) for our month in Seattle. For 2 of the 4 weeks I was the only occupant. During those two weeks, I had no concerns over my safety. The residential neighborhood was quiet, there was ample street parking and it was convenient to a variety of stores and restaurants. There was a good little restaurant 2 blocks away, with a bus stop on the same corner. Please keep in mind I stayed prior to the new addition so it was understandable that Joy would wait to do any updating.

I have only one complaint and it has nothing to do with accommodations but has everything to do with the ridiculous recycling regulations that Seattle has in place!

I will be in Seattle again and as soon as I have dates, I am looking forward to calling Joy to see if she has something available.
