Eu estive na casa da Beth por dois dias em Maio de 2015. Ela havia viajado e deixou sua tia para receber os hóspedes. Foi uma excelente experiencia pessoal. Conheci pessoas amaveis, atenciosas e muito receptivas. Tive tanta empatia, que fu conhecer a vida da comunidade etíope em Seattle, e essa foi outra expetacular experiencia.
Quanto a hospedagem, uma casa MUITO limpa e confortável num bairro residencial. Fiz novos amigos e conheci pessoas muito educadas e felizes
Beth and her family are incredible hosts. The neighborhood is a dream. The bed was so soft, everything was super clean. We highly recommend this cottage for a pleasant stay.
Her aunt was so kind to give us a ride to Lake Washington. Very hospitable and accommodating. It was a blessing to get to know them. THANK YOU!
I felt very comfortable and at home at Beth's house. Beth is very kind and was willing to answer any questions I had. The room/bathroom were very clean when I arrived and the room has it's own lock and key, which made me feel safe in leaving any valuables behind while adventuring around Seattle. Beth's house is located very close to a major bus line that drops you off two blocks away from Pike's Place Market and is easily connected to other bus lines that go all over Seattle. Don't forget to get an Orca Card for easy payment if you plan on using public transportation. I felt comfortable in coming and going as I pleased, so I felt okay about staying out a little late on a couple of the nights I stayed. The neighborhood was peaceful, so this room is perfect for one or two travelers who like to stay in a quiet neighborhood. Overall, Beth's Ethiopian Cottage #1 is lovely :)
We had a wonderful stay at Beth's home! Our host was lovely, welcoming, and very helpful. Location was also great, and the house was clean and well-maintained. We would highly recommend to anyone!
Beth's place was exactly like the photos and a great place away from the bustle of the city - but still a quick 15 minute bus ride on the number 7.
I would recommend Beth's to anyone visiting Seattle.
This may very well be the best value in Seattle! Great room, spacious and clean. The house is only 15 minutes from downtown. Easy to find, easy to find parking.
Unfortunately, Beth was out of town. We had an easy time getting in though. If we come back to Seattle, I think we'll be coming back here to stay.
My only regret is not getting to meet Beth. She was fantastic in all our communications.
Sehe netter Kontakt, aber leider ist etwas dazwischen gekommen und wir konnten nicht bei Beth schlafen, da sie ihr Haus gerade gestrichen hat. Dennoch hat sie uns ein Hotel gebucht und bezahlt. Also war es völlig okay, wir wurden aber davon überrascht. Sonst kann ich sie weiterempfehlen :)
