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.

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.

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.

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❤️
