Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us were in town for a wedding and it fit all of us extremely comfortably. There was AC which was amazing on this 90 degree weekend. House was clean, comfortable, and had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The owner was also very responsive with booking and had everything ready for us when we got there. Very close location to green lake and close proximity to downtown where our wedding was. We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Good valve and location but needs a few simple and relatively inexpensive fixes.

  • 4 of 5

Clean place, nice kitchen, great location. Good value. Would stay there again. Below are my recommendations for improvements.

Could be more secure. One of the main floor bedrooms had a window which did not lock. I was also told that the side door into the garage did not lock as well but there was a lock from the garage to the basement. Would be nice to have a garage door opener. Also the table tennis table was not regulation size, the ball did not bounce well on the table which was small and much higher than regulation. WiFi security password/code was hard to find. A welcome sheet/email with the WiFi password would have been helpful instead of having it written a cluttered board.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing. Window now locks. Garage door is locked in down position. Game area and all the games are intended for kids, hence the smaller table. Will consider replacing the table. As for instructions, vrbo does a nice job sending a letter to guests prior to arrival, requesting they access the "hospitality" section which includes specific details about address, codes, security, using amenities, house rules, nearby eateries, attractions. Not sure how it was overlooked since that's where the house address is provided. Best wishes

Great little house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here! Location was perfect for us. Very cute, clean and comfortable. Grocery store 2 blocks away is a huge plus. We cooked some great breakfast each morning before we played in Seattle all day. The owner responds to questions super fast. I would recommend this house for sure.
