The place was great, clean and tidy. Was larger than I thought it would be with an entirely separate room with futon. Complimentary coffee and tea. Completely private. Would definitely stay again : ).

We live right around the corner, and this was a great little apartment for my parents to stay in when they were visiting from out of town. They have already reserved it again for a visit in July!

Delightful location--just up the hill from Columbia City hot spots, with a nice little park across the street. Had a great weekend here, very helpful hosts!

This rental was just about perfect! My husband and I stayed for two nights. I had some initial issues not understanding the lock but that was due to me mixing the instructions up, not the rental or anything Alicia did. Thankfully Alicia was awesome about communication and trying to help me figure it out. I can't say enough good things about communication with Alicia. We spent almost all of our time out and about meeting up with friends that lived close by and were just at the rental to sleep and shower, it was PERFECT for that. The bed and shower was adequate. Hopping in a car to downtown and other locations around Seattle from this location was easy so it felt very centrally located to everything we wanted to do. It was also very nice to have a few snacks, tea and coffee available to us provided by Alicia in the rental which we appreciated. The only downsides I can think of: the walkway to the door - some of the bushes were sticking out far into the narrow walkway to the rental front door and it was raining when we arrived, so trying to dodge branches and trying not to step in wet grass/mud while also carrying luggage was a bit of a pain. The rental roof height is a bit on that shorter side, so if you are over 6' tall it might feel cramped, but that wasn't an issue for us. One night there were some ants searching around in the restroom (we had no food in there so not sure why, maybe due to rain) but ants are really hard anyone to control. Perhaps a trap or two would help keep them at bay so they don't show up at all. Those are the only negative things I could think of and in the end they really aren't that big of a deal. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Alicia!

Great value for this place. It was clean and had all the essentials needed for a comfortable stay in Seattle. The location is near the Seattle rail systems making most of Seattle accessible by foot. Alicia was also very kind and hospitable.

I am originally from Denver and moved to the Seattle area 6 years ago. I love living in Seattle, especially in Columbia City. It's such a great neighborhood with wonderful people. I work in the travel industry and love to travel in my time off. I enjoy taking advantage of the beautiful Seattle summers with my fiancé by getting outside, camping and meeting new people.
