Not So Shangri-La
Submitted: May 15, 2013
Stayed: April 2013
I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very unhappy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
There are no restaurants or grocery stores nearby to walk to. This makes your stay very inconvenient if you do not have a vehicle.The unit was very clean, but old. My nine year granddaughter was upset with the two paintings of naked ladies in the hallway. I had to cover them with hand towels. Also, we had problems with large spiders (size of a fifty cent piece) that would come out at night. I would not recommend this unit to anyone else.

Owner response: 1) Our home is under year-round contract with a professional pest control company where it continues to be regularly serviced, since 2006. 2) Our home is a classic 1958, midcentury modern, custom-build, and as such, retains a balance of original character and tasteful renovation with all modern up-grades. A March 2013 issue of Seattle Times' Pacific NW Magazine published a full-length feature article highlighting our rental suite and praising our home. This architecturally focused publication does not extend valuable coverage to "old" properties. 3) We do not have images of "naked ladies" on our premises. We display original art; lithographs and oils on par with the artistic nature of the culture in which we live. These are abstract figural works which are not realistic and should not be interpreted as such. 4) Just yards from a major bus line, our location is in the West Seattle neighborhood of the City of Seattle. We are within a 1/2 mile walking distance to Morgan Street Junction; a shopping hub where restaurants, major grocery store, coffee shops, retailers and services are conveniently located.
