Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Jill and Jerome's apartment. It was a perfect location for us and the apartment was great, well put together and very clean. We will be going back to Seattle again and hope to stay at Jill and Jerome's. It was great. Thanks

  • I did not stay here, this space was booked for my coworker, Angel, so this is a second-hand review: He had a fine stay, but was very cold. The hosts provided extra space heaters, I believe. But the main heater or something else caused a very loud noise the whole time, so he had trouble sleeping. I believe this is being looked into. Other than that, he had everything he needed, and was very close to everything Columbia City had to offer. The hosts were quick to respond to his requests and questions, etc.

    Response from Jill & Jerome:

    I apologize for the cold conditions! We did have quite the cold spell while Angel was here and we gave him an extra radiator heater to help keep things toasty. That heater keeps our entire top floor warm, so we thought it would do the same for him (esp since there were 2 downstairs). Heaters were sold out all over the city and we needed to keep the forced air heat on as well to help keep things warm. Unfortunately it seems this created more noise than we expected. Had we realized that Angel was still cold we would have taken other measures to ensure he was comfortable but he never mentioned this to us. We're very sorry he was not comfortable. We have added an additional heater downstairs to help out our future guests. Carmiel, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on Angels behalf! :)

  • We stayed a long time in this apartment and have only great things to say about it and the hosts.
    The best part is the Columbia City shopping district a minute walk away.
    We'll choose it again for future stats in Seattle.

  • We actually live down the street, and needed a place to stay while our floors were refinished. The space is definitely quirky, so if you're a fancy hotel sort, this wouldn't be right for you. The location was brilliant for us, and we're big fans of our neighborhood, Columbia City!
    The bed was super comfortable, and the space very clean. And the Rainier in the fridge and shampoo and conditioner were both nice touches.

  • A clean well organized and well-stocked space - a three quarter basement with quirky floors, comfortable furniture and amenities like Wifi, a Bluetooth speaker system, coffee maker with good coffee, and plenty of lighting. They accommodated our needs are very flexible and very kind.

  • What a wonderful place. Not only was the apartment the perfect cozy retreat in Seattle (and located in a great walking area with lots of shops and restaurants), but Jill and Jerome were wonderful hosts. We can not recommend them (and their place) enough!

  • Jill and Jerome's apartment was amazing. It was clean and bright and comfortable. We loved it's proximity to everything in Seattle. The couple was super accommodating and helped us in every way they could. I will definitely try to stay here the next time I come back to Seattle!

  • Jill and Jerome's apartment is in a great little area of Columbia city. Quiet area with a fantastic ale house, sushi bar and breakfast place just 2 min walk away. Apartment is as the pictures show. Great place to be with the dog as they have a fenced backyard and a great dog off leash park within walking distance. Would recommend this apartment!

    September 2013
  • We stayed in Jill's lovely apartment for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The apt was pet friendly and had a fenced yard which made it very convenient to let our dogs outside. The apt was very clean and well appointed. The area had many cool restaurants and bars within walking distance. Would definitely stay there again.

    September 2013
  • Jill and Jerome's was perfect for us. We didn't get a chance to meet them in our quick 2 night stay, but had no problems getting in or out. And we appreciated the coffee and other items to help us settle in quickly. We'll likely be back next time we're in Seattle visiting!

We're a professional thirty-something couple obsessed with our pets and our new home. Although we've both been in Seattle for around 5 years we just moved here to Columbia City and have quickly fallen head over heels for this neighborhood and our new home. We are loving the potential that comes with this old 1920's craftsman and can't wait to dive into the long list of home improvement projects that we have planned. We have the added benefit of a fully finished basement apartment with a private entrance which we use for out of town guests. When our family and friends are not here visiting we open the door to AirBnb and welcome the opportunity to meet many interesting people. When we're not hosting, we love to take day trips to hike and explore all that Washington has to offer. Seattle is always beautiful, but especially so in our short lived summer. We take advantage of it while we can!
