What makes this apartment unique

Luscious trees, private garden and people walking, easy access to businesses and great restaurants, the (wow) University Village and quick bus ride to downtown Seattle are just a few of the great reasons to stay here in the heart of Seattle's #1 most popular neighborhood.

Charming house with beautiful trees and garden in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Nice private studio flat (with deck area) within walking distance of good restaurants and coffee shops. The Ravenna neighborhood is beautiful to walk around and is family friendly.

The flat is very clean and has everything needed for an extended stay.

Joy is approachable, friendly and accommodating. Great place to stay!

My husband and I stayed in Joy's studio apartment for 12 nights while visiting our daughter and her family for Christmas. It was perfect for us as it is within walking distance of our daughter's home. The apartment is well equipped. The kitchen is small but was ok for us as we were only interested in being able to have our morning coffee. The apt is very clean and quiet and is in a great location. Very walkable neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again.

A view of Mt Rainier, on a clear day.

  • 5 of 5

I should have written this review months ago, and I apologize to Joy for not doing so sooner.

Yes, it was small and could have used updating but I knew from the pictures it was not the Ritz. It was clean, warm and dry, and efficient. It had everything we needed (minus the food) for our month in Seattle. For 2 of the 4 weeks I was the only occupant. During those two weeks, I had no concerns over my safety. The residential neighborhood was quiet, there was ample street parking and it was convenient to a variety of stores and restaurants. There was a good little restaurant 2 blocks away, with a bus stop on the same corner. Please keep in mind I stayed prior to the new addition so it was understandable that Joy would wait to do any updating.

I have only one complaint and it has nothing to do with accommodations but has everything to do with the ridiculous recycling regulations that Seattle has in place!

I will be in Seattle again and as soon as I have dates, I am looking forward to calling Joy to see if she has something available.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cozy studio for two months this summer (2015). It is small but had everything I needed for my stay. I prepared most of my meals in the small, but well appointed kitchenette. With a microwave, a toaster oven and a great single cooking gizmo for boiling water or frying eggs, the only thing I couldn't prepare would be a large turkey. I would have to make that in the new large gas barbecue grill provided on the large patio.

The bathroom was clean and comfortable with a large stall shower and plenty of storage for my "stuff". The queen bed was very comfortable. With wifi and a TV, I had all the entertainment I needed.

An addition to the cottage was constructed while I was there (with my blessing). This provides a separate space if two people are occupying the space.

The neighborhood is very quiet and well maintained. It is convenient to UW, restaurants, shopping and the bus to downtown. I had a car for my stay, but the bus is two short blocks away.

I am a spunky Senior and I recommend the location very highly. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Best of all was the clear view of Mt. Rainer from the patio.

Unrealized Potential

  • 2 of 5

This could be a cute and cozy little studio apartment with some repairs and updating. The good news – the location is in a great neighborhood, it is very close to the University of Washington and University Village shopping center, the bed is very comfortable, the garden would be lovely in the summer, and the owner was great to work with. That said, the unit is in serious need of update and repair. The kitchenette floor is painted plywood and the paint is wearing off. The walls have dings in them where the worn-out yard sale chair has banged against it. The ceiling is a couple of different colors. A number of little hand-written sticky notes alert visitors to things that are wrong (shower knob doesn’t work properly, can’t operate the hairdryer if the heater is on, etc.). The sad part is that for want of a very few hundred dollars for upgrades and repairs, this unit falls well short of its rather nice potential. As is, it does not rise to the standards we have come to expect from VRBO properties.

Owner's Response: This Studio is full of potential and I appreciate the feedback. Thank you! It is affordable, comfortable and attractive however its paint and update appointment is scheduled for June, when the current extended stay ends. The current guest accepted the Studio 'as is' and the chair was slated for replacement but I was asked that it stay.

Adorable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cozy, adorable studio for a week over Christmas while visiting family. It's quiet, clean and and I had all that I needed to be comfy! Great spot for 1 or 2 people. There is a nicely appointed kitchenette, tv, and wifi. The neighborhood is quite charming and I enjoyed walking in the morning. I had a view of beautiful Mount Rainier from the deck just outside the door! The UW is near, as is University Village for great shopping and dining. Thank you Joy!
