“A Very Happy Place for us!”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2017

The Happy House has by far been the best place we have ever stayed in Seattle! Our family with 3 adults, 1 teen, and a baby were able to have plenty of room to enjoy ourselves. The house is art filled and whimsical, with extremely comfy beds, 4 bedrooms, a lovely kitchen, a huge back yard, and even a hot tub! Melissa, our host, left many wonderful special touches, like flowers, chocolates, and a bottle of wine for us! The TV room was great for watching late night videos, and the washer/dryer very helpful for our 10 day stay. We will definitely be back!

Response from the owner Thank you Shannon! You were wonderful guests and I look forward to hosting you again!

“Awesome in Seattle”

What a wonderful vacation experience. The Happy House was a very clean, roomy home for 5 friends who celebrated their 75th birthdays this year. Melissa, the owner, was so friendly and kind to us. Exceptionally well stocked home with lots of extras. So cheerful and comfortable. We loved staying at The Happy House and would do it again if in Seattle. We highly recommend this home.

“a truly Happy House”

The grounds and gardens are so well situated that you don't even feel you're in a city except for occasional street noise. Kitchen is very well equipped,beds are very comfortable,bathrooms are great(the downstairs one is a work of art itself) The indoor and outdoor dining spaces with views of the secret gardens were fabulous. Every square inch of this exquisite home is a visual treat. After a day in Seattle traffic, we were truly happy to come home to Happy House! The hot tub is excellent. We were there in Feb,the bleakest time of year in Seattle,and the gardens were very nice but I can only imagine how it looks in bloom. Good restaurants close by(Thai One On has great Tom Kha soup). We had the best dinner ever at Sutra's. We were in Seattle for my wife's birthday and Valentines--Melissa had a heart-shaped chocolate torte and bottle of Champagne in the fridge waiting for us. All Melissa's recommendations were spot on and great. We will definitely book again if we revisit Seattle. Thankyou so much, Melissa!

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your review! It was wonderful having you as guests! It would be wonderful to have you back. So glad you enjoyed your stay and it's true, the gardens truly come alive in Spring and Summer. Some trees are already flowering, and I try to add new additions each year to make it an even more enjoyable urban oasis. Hope to see you again!

“Loved the house and it's location.”

Loved the house and it's location. The owner was helpful and easy to work with. I hope to return to the Happy House someday.

“Beautiful house inside and out, just perfect”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2014

There couldn’t be a more fitting name than the “Happy House” for where we resided for 4 days in Seattle. We were visiting from England for a two-part holiday in Seattle and Vancouver. Our intentions were to spend a few days here and watch the Seahawks vs Broncos match. We debated staying in a hotel for three nights and are so glad we didn’t. The house was beautiful and quirky with a charming pretty garden and great facilities. There is a ping pong table, downstairs TV room, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, a lounge and dining area. There are laundry facilities and an array of board games and books provided – a very homely experience; one that made us wish we had stayed for 14 days instead of 4! Our particular highlight was on the first day, in the garden a Hummingbird came down to feed on the nectar of some of the flowers in the garden. This was truly amazing, as three of us never having seen one before. Seattle is a beautiful city and the location (about 15 minutes drive to downtown) was perfect for getting a true sense of an American neighbourhood. For three of us it was our first experience of the US and it did not disappoint. The food, friendliness and atmosphere were amazing. Some of our favourite places to eat were at the Space Needle restaurant, Red Mill Burgers, the Crab Pot and Wendy’s! The weekend was fantastic, as the Broncos fans were in town and despite being the end of September the temperature was 29 degrees making the atmosphere similar to a festival. We loved taking a bus through the neighbourhood to downtown and then starting at Pike Place Market we walked along the waterfront to CenturyLink Field and back again through buzzing the city streets. The game itself was like nothing I have ever experienced. As British natives and huge NFL fans, we have been to see games at Wembley in London but nothing compared to the 12th man roar as the Seahawks defence took to the field. We all wish we could have stayed longer and seen more of Seattle and Washington. Anyone travelling there should seriously consider the Happy House! This will be our priority place for future visits to the Emerald City! #gohawks #gohappyhouse !!!

We were from out of town for our daughters wedding. We had a pre-nuptual gathering the night before, and the house, with it's twinkly lights, beautiful and contemporary interior decoration and yard with tented seating and plenty of room made this the perfect setting for a memorable event. The house was perfect, and comfortably slept all of our party.

“the perfect place for us!”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

our family is scattered around the world, but we all converged in seattle for a week in july to celebrate our youngest daughter's wedding. the fun garden was the first thing we loved about the house and we changed the reception location and held it there. the fun, artsy, relaxed atmosphere of this house made us all feel at home right away. the well-stocked kitchen made putting on our non-stop family-and-friends get-together easy. we all want to make this an annual place for our reunions, if we can swing it from now on!

Response from the owner It was delightful to have you and your family celebrate such a beautiful occasion in my home! You were wonderful guests and I would welcome you back anytime!
