Karen really did a nice job of finding out what we needed to make my parents 60th anniversary celebration with our extended family a wonderful experience. She offer her personal cell number, if needed. The house was beautiful, with a lovely patio and garden which we took advantage of by having a family barbecue. This was the perfect central meeting place as three of my parents five grandchildren live within 15 minutes of Karen's home. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful with really easy access to hiking at the UW Arboretum. We had a wonderful family gathering in no small part thanks to a wonderful location and home.

Karen's home was exactly as she described it in the posting. The location was fantastic for our small company trip to Seattle. Her yard is especially beautiful. Thank you.

Karen and her family have a beautiful home! They communicated arrival plans and even reached out in advance to see how we would like the sleeping options arranged. Their home has all the things you would need to cook a few meals over the stay and they even went above and beyond leaving us an arrival care package. The location was perfect to explore downtown, spend time in capital hill and even make our way out to Boeing for a tour. We were very comfortable and appreciated all of their hospitality!

Karen and her family is a great host, the house was well prepared for our group before we arrived. The house is located in a nice neighbourhood with easy access to transportations. It was an excellent stay for all of us.

Karen's home was beautiful and absolutely perfect for our girls weekend in Seattle. The home is stunning and very clean. Karen was also wonderful to work with. This was my first time using AirBNB therefore Karen's reach ability was extremely reassuring.

We'd never been to Seattle before this trip, and Karen and her family could not have been more helpful or welcoming. Our emailed questions ahead of time were answered quickly and with lots of helpful info included, and our arrival at the house was met with warm notes from the family along with a basket of yummy treats! The house itself was immaculate and so comfortable, and in such a convenient location - a bit out of the downtown fray but only minutes to all the great neighborhoods. There's a really nice market and coffee shop a block away, along with the Arboretum, which was the perfect running/walking spot. We would definitely go back, and recommend this listing highly to anyone considering it!
