Wonderful first time VRBO experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and we were so very pleased. Charlotte was so very helpful from the beginning with the booking process and completely til the end with our extension of stay. We loved the Paris themed studio condo. Attention to each detail has been thought through. I can't think of anything we couldn't find that was needed for our two month stay. It is our home away from home when we visit family in the future if it is available. The location is great for walking or using the freeways. We enjoyed walking the trails to nearby restaurants and shopping as well as just for exercise and enjoying nature. Saw several birds including eagles. Can't say enough about how well it met our needs. We know it was God ordained to find this special VRBO and we feel so very blessed to cross paths with Charlotte and Randy. We would definitely recommend this place to others. We hope to come back again. Thank you again!!

Just a wonderful place and experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed with Charlotte Baker. Here are the main points.

1. Wonderful location. Central to Redmond Town Center and superb Saturday Farmer's Market. Right by the Sammamish River Trail. Shops and restaurants.

2. Wonderful and thoughtful host. Charlotte thought of and provided everything for comfort and convenience. Pots and pans, dishes, wifi, TV, washer/dryier, jjust everything to make one feel at home. Plus, the place is absolutely charming with a French theme! Just like being in a cozy Parisian retreat with all the comforts of home.

3. We love the skylights in the kitchen and bathroom. Worth a climb to the 3rd level.

4. She also provided bikes, plus helmets. We did not use them, but others who want to explore the area (trail to Woodinville) will find them useful.

5. Charlotte checks in with us when we arrived to make sure we were fine. She was there to provide anything else we might need, but of course she already anticipated every need.

Would definitely stay with her again and again!

Condo was great,comfortable and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were easy to communicate with and helped us immediately when we couldn't get online. It was our fault but were very nice about that.

Bed was comfortable and the condo had everything to make our stay good. The condo is so nice and clean and we love the Paris decor. We stayed three months and are coming back for three more. They also have a printer in the condo which was a huge bonus for us.

The location to Redmond and freeways was perfect. We took walks along the river and walked to town. They have alot of information as to what to do.

One of the best vrbo owners we have dealt with. I cannot think of even one bad thing to say, it was exactly as described and we loved staying in Charlotte and Randy's condo. We are traveling for two years and come back to stay in Seattle to see family . We feel like this is our home away from home.

Thank you Charlotte and Randy for being so helpful and letting us come back!

Lovely studio

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay especially if you like a few quiet hours everyday even in your vacation. The location is close to everything, and the environment is peaceful. The kitchen is fairly basic but sufficient for one or two people. Everything else is 110%. Wonderfully comfortable bed. Clean interior. Comfortable furniture. All the little things you might need during a stay is prepared and waiting for you. I would choose this studio again, with no hesitation.

Our “Home” in Redmond

  • 5 of 5

Several excellent restaurants within walking distance, Tipsy Cow, The Matador & The Stone House. Conveniently close to a major freeway entrance & a relatively short drive to downtown Seattle. A wonderful walking running biking path basically right out the back door. A short bike ride to wine country, Chateau Ste. Michelle & Red Hook brewery & restaurant. Perfectly furnished & nicely decorated, a very comfortable bed, a great unit for two, it felt like home. The owners were easy to communicate with and were excellent hosts. This was our best VRBO experience.

Comfortable and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were very responsive! Enjoyed our stay. Walked to the Redmond Saturday Farmer's Market and Redmond Center easily. Very well-appointed kitchen and very thoughtful of hosts to provide everyday items like spices! Easily beat all extended-stay hotels in the area for comfort. Looking forward to staying again.
