Joyce 's home made our trip to Seattle a special and wonderful experience. It is a beautiful and cozy oasis in a very busy city. The location is great. We highly recommend it, and miss it already.
Perfect venue! The home was cozy, charming with great location. We had everything we needed and available to us. Great neighborhood, plenty of parking. The outdoor garden and living space was a wonderful setting. Comfy beds, great views of Seattle and Space Needle. Host left easy to follow instructions and notes in the house. Would recommend and stay again.
Joyce's home was the perfect place for my family to relax and enjoy Seattle (despite the fact that they were helping me move during their stay)! The place is lovely, decorated beautifully, and looks just like the pictures. It was a very comfortable stay, and while I personally did not meet Joyce, my family noted that she was very friendly and helpful!
As soon as we pulled up to the orange house we knew we made the right decision. Joyce’s home is lovely, comfortable and full of charm. The collection of books cannot be beat and Joyce herself is a wealth of information. We enjoyed walking around the Wallingford neighborhood as well as into Fremont. Joyce also told us to check out Gas Works Park on Tuesday evening, and it was one of the best things we did while in Seattle. The location is fantastic whether you choose to drive or take the bus. In addition to the comfort inside the house, the outside space is also an added bonus. Sitting on the front porch in the evening was a fantastic way to relax and end the day. Open up the balcony doors and enjoy the sunset and a great view of the city. We honestly could not have been happier with our experience. This was a wonderful home away from home!
Everything about this house is perfect. Comfortable beds, plenty of towels, a kitchen that has everything (including a welcome basket of bread, fruit and wine) ... and the books! Joyce has fantastic taste in books.
I have stayed in many Airbnbs and this one is my favorite.
