Guestbook comments from the owner

OUR FAVORITE SEATTLE RENTAL!





Urban Oasis is the first rental we seek out when coming to Seattle! It is located in a quiet neighborhood in West Seattle overlooking Elliot Bay and the city. We love driving in to their off-street parking and very much enjoy the lovely yard and garden area as we walk to our apartment entrance. Ellen and Jim have created such a pleasant space … bright, comfy, very clean, with plenty of room to spread out. We were especially impressed and pleased with how comfortable the bed was. Meeting Ellen and Jim is just the cherry on top of this wonderful rental discovery. They are such warm cheerful folks. Urban Oasis is definitely a place we’d recommend to our family and friends.

Feels like a home

  • 5 of 5

My family (myself, wife, and our 2yr old) and I are wrapping up a 3 month stay at the Urban Oasis and we could not be more pleased with our experience. We recently moved back to the Seattle area and needed a temporary place to stay until our new apartment became available. We are so happy to have found this place. The location is perfect. Just a short drive (maybe 5mins; or $10-15 cab ride) to downtown Seattle but also close to other area attractions like Alki Beach (a must in the spring and summer) and hip California Ave in West Seattle with plenty of great restaurants, bars, markets, and shopping. Or, take a quick ferry ride to Vashon Island for a little more nature. The airport is also an easy 15 min ride away and avoids all the downtown traffic. The apartment is tastefully decorated and has felt like a true home during our stay. The garden surrounding the beautifully restored craftsmen is in full bloom and is quite a site (kudos Jim). The neighborhood offers quiet streets for walking with some stunning views of the Seattle skyline. The owners, Jim and Ellen, are wonderful hosts (and people) and make themselves readily available for anything you may need. Bottom line, the apartment is spacious, comfortable, clean, and in a great location. We would (and will) recommend the Urban Oasis to anyone coming to stay Seattle. We would also recommend it to any locals needing some temporary digs. Thank you Jim and Ellen!

Owner's Response: AaaaaW! Suzanne, we have loved having you and your family with us for the past few months! We're so happy that it's been a true home away from home! We'll be sad to see you go but happy that you'll finally be able to move into your own home. And of course, we'll get to stay in touch! Big Hug, Ellen & Jim

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Urban Oasis was the perfect place for us to stay during our get away vacation in October. After a year of family illness and responsibility it felt emancipating to kick up our heels and be carefree for a bit. The apartment is lovely, contemporary and homey. Away from the hub-bub of the city, it gave my husband and I a chance to really relax and when we felt renewed, off we would again on another adventure. Ellen and Jim were fabulous hosts...meeting them felt more like catching up with old friends than a landlord/tenant encounter. They were available whenever we needed assistance but always respected our space.

As for Seattle....what can I say....we had a blast being tourists to the max! Even did the ferris wheel and I'm terrified of heights! Hoping that someday we will return and if we do, this will be our nest. Congratulations Ellen on your book publication, "Nothing Ever Goes On Here", and thank you again for the "limited edition" signed copy, lol.

An oasis indeed

  • 5 of 5

This is a two bedroom suite in the basement of a home - cool and quiet during the warm summer days we were there. Beautifully furnished with everything we could need, spacious and comfortable. This quiet neighborhood is away from the tourist areas but close to drive to all the attractions. The owners were available - Ellen stopped by right after we arrived to offer advice and answer questions, which was nice, and we had cell phone numbers so we could have reached them any time. How lovely to sit outside late in the evening on the private patio and enjoy a glass of wine!

Two night stay in July

  • 5 of 5

The Urban Oasis was a perfect spot for us and our friends to start off our Pacific Northwest Vacation. We enjoyed our 2 nights stay, and the location was good for us to spend some time in downtown Seattle within a short drive and also nice to go to the beach for an evening of relaxation at a nearby restaurant.

Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

For years my son always wanted to visit Seattle, so prior to his senior year, I made arrangements to take him there. I performed an extension search on accomodations when one night I stumbled across this property. I new immediately that this is where we were going to stay during our visit. When I reached out to Ellen and explained some of the things I wanted to do during our visit, she went out of her way to contact various individuals to arrange things for my son and I. From the minute you drive up to the house and walk along the back of the house to the apartment, you immediately notice how peaceful and serene the area is. The apartment is fully furnished for your visit and believe me when I say, no small detail was missed. My son and I felt like these accomodations were our home away from home. The beds were perfect and provided the best nights sleep ever and the fireplace was such a special treat! As for the owners (Ellen & Jim), you'll never find two nicer people ever! They are so very thoughtful and warm and definitely make you feel welcomed. I won't stay any place else when I travel to Seattle. It was truly my personal oasis!!!
