What makes this house unique

Several guests have stated that a car wasn't necessary since downtown is just a few miles away the metro/bus system brought them everywhere on their agenda.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our daughter found the perfect guest quarters for us, far better than a hotel - everything was perfect.

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at quite a few VRBO condos and homes, Jose & Cindy's cottage was the best overall rental experience I've ever had. Even though the home is old, we found it to be exceptionally clean and well maintained. The modern kitchen is thoughtfully provisioned. Being excellent hosts, Jose & Cindy provided some nice snacks and a few key supplies (coffee and filters!). My wife and I spent a week here with our teenage daughter and it was perfect for us. We rented a car (and didn't use public transportation) so having off street parking was helpful. (Note: the driveway is steep and narrow, and the parking space was challenging to maneuver into because of limited space and a muddy turn-around area; I didn't have a problem but just be aware.) We spent a lot of time relaxing in the home and it was very cozy. It is in a great location with quite a few nice restaurants within walking distance. And did I mention how clean it was? Seriously, Jose & Cindy are great hosts, I highly recommend this property.

Blissful

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cozy old world feeling of the cottage. Everything was spotless when we arrived and the house had everything we could have possibly needed. We walked or took uber everywhere. Katy's coffee shop is just a half a block away. We'll definitely stay here again on our next visit to Seattle❤️

Loved it.

  • 4 of 5

House is in a quiet neighborhood and has a nice floor plan.

One of the beds is best for one person.

They need to have bedside lamps for reading at night.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our daughter at Seattle University and the property was an easy eight block walk to campus. Numerous restaurants and bars in the Capitol Hill area, as well as groceries stores and coffee shops, also were within walking distance. Although Seattle traffic can be unbelievably congested, we were able to get of town quickly for days trips to the Cascades (east) and Whidbey Island (north). The property was well-maintained and contained thoughtful touches such as a welcome basket of local goodies and a nice spice selection if you want to cook. The off-street parking is a valuable amenity in Seattle. The owners were very accommodating and responsive, even patiently assisting me with finding the damage deposit refund (which I was looking for in the wrong account!). We highly recommend this property.

Super location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific location for visiting Seattle. We had a rental car and there was convenient parking in the back yard. But we also took advantage of easy public transportation and even a quick walk from the house to Lake Washington. The house was very comfortable. We did some cooking in the well-stocked kitchen, took advantage of wi-fi, DVD player, cable TV, library of sightseeing guides, etc. My mom is 87 and she did fine getting up and down the entry stairs with sturdy rails! Best find was the great brew house at the end of the block with a different food truck on site every night of the week! Most of all, I appreciated Jose's great and timely communication. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Great Space for a stay

  • 5 of 5

I believe we have stayed in Jose and Cindy's cottage a half dozen times or more. Always immaculately clean and both Jose and Cindy are always available if you need anything.

Convenient to shops, groceries, restaurants, etc and a five minute walk to our grandsons. Chuck's Hop Shop a half block away a must for beer afficianados - dogs and children welcome!

Highly recommended.
