- Very Good
April was fantastic and the place was perfect. Will definitely try to stay again next time I'm in Seattle.
I travelled to Seattle on business and decided to rent this property instead of a hotel. We arrived and saw this beautiful home clean and furnished well. They even had snacks and other foodie items. The backyard was very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and had a great sleep. The owner was amazing and had great conversation and provided suggestions for restaurants. I will be returning when I am in Seattle again.
“Home away from Home”
We had a wild week in Seattle filled with ER visits and all. But the cottage remained our home always. We all couldn't love to come home every day!! We will definitely be back soon!!
“Comfort away from home”
What a lovely place. The owners have gone out of their way and above and beyond to make guests feel at home and welcome. We found everything we could possibly need. The kids played games and never watched television the entire visit. The heated floor in the bathroom was lovely. The beds were cozy and comfortable. I honestly wished we could have stayed longer. The my daughters (12 and 14) asked if we could stay there again the next time we are in Seattle and we probably will. Highly recommended.
“Such a wonderful cottage!”
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very sweet 1920's cottage. After a drive from Boston it felt like we had come home. April and Mike had left some goodies for our arrival and we settled right in. The kitchen had every appliance we could ask for and we were able to make many delicious meals. After 2 1/2 weeks on the road it was such a relief to have a comfortable bed to sleep in and a nice little neighborhood to walk our dog around. To top it all the bathroom floor was heated...such an amazing perk to have!! Thanks again april & Mike! We will definitely suggest out of towners to spend some time in your cottage!
Response from the owner Thank you, Liz, it was a pleasure hosting you!
