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.

Great old house with comfy beds.

  • 4 of 5

This old house was very clean and well taken care of. It is in a good neighborhood with easy access to other parts of the city (downtown, Capitol Hill, etc.). While this is not normally an issue, the lack of air conditioning was a drawback during our Labor Day visit due to unseasonable temperatures and smoke from wildfires. There was a swamp cooler in the master, which helped, but it certainly wasn't enough to keep the whole house cool. Other than that, everything was great, the owners communicated well and let us stay late on our last day so we wouldn't have to traverse the city with our suitcases. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone... especially during a non-summer month.

Cozy and well located

  • 4 of 5

Walk to a cute little coffee shop (Katy's), 3 supermarkets ( The Coop, Trader Joe's & Safeway) or take the downtown bus from this well located house. After a day of touring it's a pleasure to return to this quiet neighborhood. If you have a car, it affords on site parking which is a real plus in this city. The driveway is steep, but as Jose warns you, if you go slow there is no problem.

We arrived in the midst of an unusual heat wave (90+) and were concerned about the temperature, but an air conditioner has been installed in one of the bedrooms and with the additional fans, the house was very comfortable. Additionally, Seattle cools off in the evening.

We had access to a full compliment of cable TV stations which was unexpected as was the large dining room which gave us the opportunity to entertain.

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

This cute little home was perfect and very close to public transportation, or, if you're up for it, a nice walk to downtown and Pike's Place!

Well appointed and maintained charming old house

  • 5 of 5

Quiet neighborhood close to coffee, restaurants, and even Trader Joe's!

The house was spacious and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed. The downstairs laundry was convenient. The parking spot right outside the kitchen was a bonus!

One suggestion to the home owners is adding blackout curtains. It would help light sleepers like us during summer months.

Clean and well located

  • 4 of 5

My mother and I stayed here for a short weekend trip. The house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The only caution is the tub/shower is difficult to get in and out of. Otherwise, great stay!

Lovely home close to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely home. Enjoyed sitting on the side porch in the mornings. Owners have stocked the kitchen with everything you need to cook meals.The beds are comfortable, Two grocery stores within blocks of the home we walked to both and enjoyed walking the neighborhood found the post office just blocks away. Close to downtown so you can walk, drive or take uber we did all three. We will definaely rent again on our next visit.
