It was a beautiful few days we spent at Melody and Justin's place, very central to all the attractions by the University. Melody was very polite and cordial in the communications. The Checkin and Checkout was fluid. I would recommend their cottage to a small family wholeheartedly!

Melody and Justin's place is a lovely home that is close to bus routes into Downtown Seattle. There are coffee shops and bars within walking distance. Communication was great and all was as described. We would love to stay there again.

This was our first experience with airBNB, and I have to say, it could not have gone better! Staying in the ‘Charming urban bungalow’ really made our trip awesome. The house was clean and spacious, and we saved a ton of money cooking for ourselves in the well-stocked kitchen. Staying here and splitting the rent four ways, this was an absolute steal! The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood with convenient access to the Greenlake area, as well as quick access to the highway to get to downtown fast. The house rules were simple and easy to follow, and we had a blast listening to the prodigious music collection. If the chance ever arises, I will be looking to stay here again, and I would wholeheartedly recommend staying to any reasonable group of 2-4 people.
