Nice little apartment with a great location. Parking was easy to find and the home was close to a bus line that helped us to get all over Seattle. The apartment was well appointed...we had everything that we needed. It was clean and quiet and perfect for our vacation. The owner was friendly and responsive. We would definitely stay here again!

Great neighborhood, cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for me. I had total privacy and did not want for anything during my stay. Ralph was always available if I needed anything. Restaurants and market a block away and there is a beautiful path around the lake for walking. Highly recommended for a single, couple or family with small children.
