Terrific apartment, terrific hosts

This is one of the best of the many vacation rental apartment experiences that I have ever had; from start to finish, everything was perfect. The listing was accurate, reservations easy, directions to the apartment clear and simple. The apartment itself is well located for all downtown attractions, and with easy access to the building, through the back. The apartment itself is a jewel. Every room is tastefully furnished and laid out, and the kitchen is well-stocked and easy to work in. I found the furniture and the bed extremely comfortable, a real plus that is often not the case in rental apartment furnishings. Over and above all this, the owners have paid a lot of attention to detail and I found every aspect of the apartment well thought out to enhance the client's stay, from the artwork that adorns the walls and shelves, to the abundant storage spaces, to the selection of reading materials for both children and adults, and even to the two flat screen tvs with cable and a selection of dvds for vacationers who simply want to stay at home a couple of evenings. The apartment was in immaculate condition when I entered; all the furnishings are in like-new condition; it is easy to envision a stay of a month or more in an apartment with this level of decor and functionality.
I had the good fortune to meet Mike and Barb personally. I came down with a fever that knocked me out for about four days, and called them to ask if I could extend my stay a couple of days, because I was in no condition to travel. They rushed over as soon as they got off work with delicious homemade chicken soup, bottled water, fruit, and other goodies to help me get better, and because they could see that I had lost so many days of my vacation due to the illness, they refused to let me pay them for the extra couple of days I spent there! It's rare to find people like Mike and Barb; but on the other hand, their Good Samaritan efforts with me are totally consistent with the services that they routinely provide for their guests: always, over and above what one would expect from owners of similarly priced apartment rentals.
I will be returning to Seattle on a regular basis; Mike and Barb's apartment here is my "Home away from home" in this city. As you can see from what I have written above, I would recommend this apartment without reservations to anyone who is considering a trip here.
