My family recently stayed at this charming bungalow and we loved it! Sarah and Andrew were wonderful hosts! The house was perfect for our first vacation to Seattle. My husband and I love to stay in vacation rentals as opposed to hotels so we have experienced all kinds of places. Bloomsbury House is the BEST!! There were so many relaxing spaces – the living room, kitchen, dining room, front and back yard – and wow, the master bedroom suite upstairs!! That is my favorite place – so peaceful and quiet. The pictures on the website depict the house, but not its warmth and charm – that’s to be experienced while you are there. GREAT AMENITIES! Including a fully stocked kitchen (just about every dish, pot, gadget you can think of!), espresso machine with detailed user instructions, fresh herbs, organic soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner, dishwasher, front loading washer and dryer, comfortable beds (tempurpedic/memory-foam), fluffy pillows, nice, clean linens, claw foot bathtub in the master suite, books, movies, music, wireless internet, board games, snacks, baby crib, changing table, high chair, toys…and a working fireplace!! We were able to cook our own meals with ease! The house was very clean and well-maintained (which is nice – not all vacation rentals are clean or taken care of) and also very tastefully decorated. We loved the art and obvious attention that Sarah and Andrew have given this home. Each room has its own creative charm and feel. They also have a Welcome Book that has information about the house, neighborhood, parking, things to do in Seattle, etc. Very helpful. Great location - close to the U-District, downtown, Seattle Center, Capitol Hill, etc. You are also a short walk away from the grocery store, shopping and lots of restaurants. We will definitely be back and we will also be telling ALL of our family/friends about our experience!! On a side note, I was really saddened when I read the one negative review. I just don’t see how anyone could say this about Sarah and Andrew. My husband and I found no issue with the contract/rules and we found Sarah and Andrew to be very kind and generous. Following the rules (i.e. leaving the house tidy) is just part of staying in a vacation rental. Go with us on this one – Bloomsbury offers a wonderful stay!! Thank you again Sarah and Andrew! Laissez les bons temps rouler!!
