This was a good location in terms of walking distance to the university. It is a high traffic area even at night which made me feel comfortable on my walk home. Melissa, was great and responded to messages quickly. I only had one issue with the wifi and she came right over and fixed it. The apartmant was basic and had the things I needed.
Melissa was an excellent host.. very accommodating and responded quickly to every request. The apartment was as promised -- clean, comfortable, and conveniently located.
We stayed here long term for about 3 months. It's about 5 mins walk to an entire street of restaurants and cafés, 10 min drive/25 min bus to downtown, and 10 min walk to the University of Washington if you're interested. The conditions of the place were fine, no complaints there.
Very nice! I enjoyed the apartment very well. The apartment is clean and well-equipped. And it is very close to the UW.
Melissa was a delightful hostess. She was very accommodating and I had a great time in Seattle.
Fantastic location -- lots of low-cost eating and entertainment options, and the 7X bus line will get you downtown very conveniently and quickly. As a host, Melissa is very responsive via text message should you have any problems or questions. The apartment is a bit on the shabby side (assorted student furniture), with views of an alley-way and parking lot. If what you need is a place just to sleep convenient to downtown or UW you'll be fine. Internet service was very very slow all 10 days of my stay -- don't plan on any kind of skype meetings in the apartment!
The security deposit is just for unexpected damage or item loss, it is never deducted for cleaning charge. We have fully refunded all security deposit to all of our guests so far. Thanks to our wonderful guests.
The wifi service is slower in the evening when more people use it at the same time. We plan to add private service soon.
