A good experience
Jim and Alice are really nice people, and the home is wonderfully cozy. We enjoyed our stay.
Roomy, well equipped, quiet, lovely patio overlooking Ravenna Park - and good parking!
This is a lovely place. It is tucked into a quiet neighborhood, on a dead end street, with a patio right on the edge of Ravenna Park. The apartment is roomy, light and well equipped with everything that you would need, including coffee, tea and condiments, which makes things so helpful. The hosts are very welcoming.
It's located in the NE section of town, with an easy drive to the freeway (but no noise), and close to the U of Washington, and University Village, an interesting collection of stores, including a good grocery.
I would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Jim and Alice !
Great spot for a weekend family getaway
Our family of four with two young children stayed in Alice and Jim’s apartment for a long weekend. Our hosts were responsive and communicative before, during, and after the trip and made us feel like welcome guests, even bringing their dog and cat by for a visit!
The apartment was comfortable, spacious, and well stocked. We cooked a few meals in the apartment and had everything we needed. We were most happy with the location: we were right up against Ravenna park and could walk across a footbridge to grab coffee and bagels in the morning. Everything was nearby: in addition to hiking in the park, we visited the farmer’s market and woodland zoo.
Thanks Alice and Jim for a great trip!
By far, my best rental experience ever!
The pictures just cannot do justice. The apartment is just perfect and the setting is even better. It’s hard to believe that you are in the middle of a busy city! Alice & Jim were the perfect hosts. We will absolutely be back!!!
Comfortable, clean, cozy
.The apartment overlooks Ravenna Park and gives you a feeling of being in a cabin in the woods. Foot trails through the park are accessible one block from the apartment. Furnishings are simple and uncluttered, but still comfortable. WiFi was adequate, but not rock solid. The TV pixelated pretty often due to connectivity problems.
Location is close to UW and lots of small restaurants and shops. If you’re brave enough to use mass transit, there are bus stops less than a quarter mile walk. Completely enjoyed our stay. The hosts, Jim and Alice, were available as needed, but not intrusive. Will stay here again when we come back to Seattle.
Lovely pied a terre!
I had a very nice time catching up with my sons and friends in this homey apartment. The place is very well equipped with everything you'd need to cook and is cozy and pleasant. Coming home through the beautifully landscaped yard was always a pleasure. The location was excellent, very close to UW and all the places I needed to be. Thanks! I hope to come again.
