We had a seamless sand wonderful stay in this cottage. The listing was described accurately and was in one of the best neighborhoods I've been in in Seattle. The host was very helpful and explained the door code for us and after inquiring about a beach towel they immediately retrieved one for us :)
We were glad to see all the extras they offered; 2 bikes for our use w/ helmets, oatmeal packets with hot water heater, games and super soft sheets!
We will definitely stay again if it's available.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Jeff who was friendly and offered some helpful tips! The cottage itself is really cute and has all sorts of amenities (phone chargers, a hair dryer, books, tea, etc). It's set in a gorgeous and pretty well-located neighbourhood for getting into downtown Seattle. It was also nice to know that Jeff and Cecilia make themselves available for help/questions via text. We had a great stay!
Cecilia's cute little cottage is very conveniently located for the University district and the Burke Gilman trail. It is very cozy and cute and has all amenities except a cooking stove. Cecilia and her husband were very welcoming with even beer and cream in the fridge and coffee and tea ready to make. Tehe bikes were nice but unfortunaty too small for me to be comfortable. But I am a tall Dutch girl, and used to larger bikes
This was a lovely experience at Cecelia's cottage. I loved the quietness, the sound of the trickling fountain outside the windows, and the wonderful coffee and other surprises she left for us in the fridge. Because we were arriving VERY late, our beds were ready and waiting for us ( including the futon). Our host and hostess were also very personable and eager to help in any way they could. I would definitely recommend this property.
This is truly lovely - a little bit of Narnia in a quiet corner of Seattle. Cecila & her husband are lovely: very welcoming and eager to share their local knowledge. A huge bonus was the bikes they let us use: this truly made one of our days amazing while we were there. Also if you like cats, you'll have lots of furry guys to pet as they like to hang out on the premises (this was a big plus for me). Truly a cozy getaway in the city!
The house were nice for the price. Super clean with comfortable bed. Location is excellent, Cecilia was very friendly and helpful.thank a lot
Cecilia and her family are ideal hosts - warm, welcoming and helpful - and her cottage is well-equipped, clean and situated in a beautifully landscaped backyard. The neighbourhood is quiet and great for walking. I hope to stay there again!
