Beautiful, clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what an amazing place to stay. The home is spotless and very nicely appointed. Modern but cozy feel, perfect for our 4 person family. Washer and dryer were in space. The area is phenomenal for walking. Garden out back is one of nicest I have seen. Owner is super nice and responsive!

The perfect sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this gorgeous property for almost a week in August. Everything about it was perfect. The amazing garden area, the proximity to anything you needed, to the living space which was immaculate. Victoria was gracious and so helpful! I would highly recommend this property to anyone coming into the Seattle area

GREAT apartment! GREAT location! But....

  • 3 of 5

This may have been the very best physical property we have used via Homeaway. We arrived an hour earlier than the 4:00 check-in time but the owners were most gracious. The owners have done a fantastic job with the remodel. And the location (for our purposes) cannot be beat. However, the downside was the noise from overhead foot traffic and a dog running around and barking.

Very minor point: lighting in the bathroom was marginal. There is no light above the mirror and one's head creates a shadow from the overhead light.

Owner's Response: Yes, we are indeed going through a new puppy phase. Woody is 5 months now, and still learning how to behave. But it's only a matter of time until he will learn :), and he is a friendly and bouncy little Jack Russell Terrier, and happy to see all our guests. Unfortunately, because this is an older, historic home, there is not much we can do about the occasional transfer of sound between the floors. We strive to be quiet and respectful, but if absolute silence is needed during the daytime for your stay, this rental might not be perfect for you. updated 2-17-2018 we fixed the lighting issue with the bathroom now have a new light and recessed medicine cabinet for better lighting and more storage. See photos and the puppy is older that helps with his overly friendliness.

A Great Garden Escape in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had the privilege of staying in this beautiful property while we were in Seattle to visit the UW Medical Center. It is a perfect location for not only great access to UW, but also fun restaurants and shopping at the University Village and only minutes from downtown where we were able to see a play and visit the Waterfront.

It is very comfortable and quiet, with very modern appliances and beautiful decorations. It also walks out into a beautiful little garden area with a gas fireplace that can be used in the evenings to sit outside and enjoy the garden.

Victoria does a fantastic job of making sure that you have everything you need and the directions posted within the property are easy and helpful. She was readily available to answer any questions and insure we were comfortable.

We will definitely be back when we head to Seattle again!
