Located in the very busy neighborhood near the University. Good access to public transport. Great location if you are without a vehicle, otherwise parking is VERY challenging. Either expensive and inconvenient or you have to park 5 or more blocks away to park for free.
Apartment is on top floor and quiet. A bit worn but works OK. My girlfriend had to clean the toilet before she would use it and there was only one towel that kind of smelled. Carpet could stand replacing. Bed was comfortable. Overall not a bad experience, in retrospect not sure it was worth the price. I'd recommend it for a lower fee but if we ever return to Seattle will choose somewhere else.
sheldons place is in a good location to be in the heart of university district and close to downtown seattle. There are plenty restaurants around the neighborhood. I didn't meet him personally but he left the key for me to acess. The building condition is a little shabby but I think it is the age and there isn't much he can do about it. I think the price should be a little lower for what it was but if you consider having the entire place in somewhere like seattle, it isn't bad.
The apartment was conveniently located and Sheldon was generally responsive. The apartment also had everything I needed. However, it was not very clean. Not horrible, but floors appeared not to have been swept, counters not well wiped, etc. Also, for some odd reason there were yellow light bulbs in the living room, making it dim and sort of weird. Sheldon did not respond when I complained about the cleanliness level. It felt like a student level apartment.
Had a nice stay. Prompt easy check in, host did a nice job of showing us around the apartment and recommending a couple of local restaurants. The neighborhood around the apartment is near the college so there are plenty of food options and there's a nice brewpub two doors down, my friends and I had a fun stay.
Sheldon was an easy going, yet still prompt and professional host. I booked very last minute and he was prompt in responding to my request as well as responding to any questions I had during my stay. The space is roomy and comfortable, and I really enjoyed the unique old space. I look forward to staying here again sometime.
This apartment is an excellent value in a high priced, lively, convenient neighborhood. The price reflects the somewhat spartan, bachelor-pad aura and rather worn condition of the building. Hey, luxury costs! The unit served our needs well, except for the noise level. We are probably more noise sensitive than many urban travelers so it might not be an issue for others. Sheldon had the place clean and tidy for us. We appreciated his encouragement that we use whatever we needed in the apartment. Glad he pointed us toward the Portage Bay Cafe for breakfast, just a few blocks away. Great tip.
Our stay is perfect. Sheldon is very accommodating, and the house has everything we need.
Hi there! My name is Shel and I am in the beautiful Pacific Northwest I heard about Airbnb through many of my friends and all of there experiences have been positive, so I figured I would jump on the band wagon.
I will be travelling to different parts of the world (Italy, Ireland, New York City and Hawaii) with my job over the next year and our beautiful apartment, one block from UW in Seattle, will be empty. We felt like it was such a shame to see it empty and none of our friends and family were available to use our space, so we figured we would try Airbnb!
I absolutely love what Seattle has to offer. I love the hikes, consistent fresh air and unbelievable scenery.
I play softball, and do so competitively nationwide, I am very active and love exploring new places in the city and surroundings.
Personally, 5 things I can't live without... sunshine, friends, community, great food and sports. I actually hold activities for the #2 food group (Seattle True Foodies) in the nation. I am also the secretary of the Seahawks Tailgate Crew. Rent my place and you will be my guest at our party. Help up save for a place of our own. I absolutely love life!
Well, that's me!
