Sheldon was really professional , helpful . The apartment is brilliant and is very close to the university . You have all types of cuisines nearby . Calm locality . Neat and perfect I would stay . Would highly recommend !
When renting a place like this, knowing you won't be able to see it before your stay, having communication with the host is vital. Sheldon was excellent at keeping a reliable line of communication, I felt taken care of before, during and after the stay. Aside from the stellar service we received, the apartment was completely cleaned, well-stocked, and the only real difference between it and a hotel was the high-level of direct service we received and how "homey" the space feels. A great price for the space and amenities that were given, I am very impressed with the overall experience and I was IN LOVE with the location and how close things were. Getting quarters for laundry from the restaurant next door further proved how nice the people in the area were. I would love to rent this place again :) High marks from this very satisfied guest! Thanks Sheldon!
Sheldon was a good host. We arrived later than expected due to travel delays, and he was perfectly accommodating. The apartment is very spacious and conveniently located.
As many others have said, Sheldon is a great host. He communicated all the details and made sure I had everything I needed. He was able to provide information about the area and some good tips for good food. I'd definitely stay again and recommend Sheldon to my friends.
Great communication, extremely helpful and understanding. I will definitely be booking next time I'm in Seattle.
Superb location if visiting University of Washington. Wonderful south sun, Over roof view of Space Needle and downtown Seattle. Classic old building with all the unique attributes of such. Many good restaurants just outside door. Multiple flights of stairs. Sporadic internet. OK for cruising more difficult if working from computer. Very low water pressure at kitchen sink but good at shower. Sitting room off bedroom perfect for reading. No tv which was good for me but not for everyone. If you have a car, parking is problematic. You will have to lug your bags unless you find the spot in front on the street. Three blocks away you can park for free. To find the entrance it is difficult. Remember that the Gyro shop is next door to the north.
Shel was good about checking in via text to make sure things were going well (and to recommend restaurants) and the apartment was great - interesting building with a lot of character and fantastic location. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Sheldon was very hospitable. He was there if we had any questions and let us know about many great places to eat. We liked the grungy University side of town. Apartment is old with no central heat, but with heavy comforter, heated blanket and space heater we were just fine. Good location if you're visiting the university. Only thing I recommend is bringing sheets and wash cloths. Other than that everything was great!
This area was a hot bed when grunge took the nation by storm. Alice and Chains, SoundGarden, and pictures on this block. Extra sheets and towels were in the drawers in the bedroom like I explained. And we have a washer and dryer on the 2nd floor. I would have pointed that out if you asked. Thank you for staying the night with us.
Sheldon was a good host.
Shelden and his place were great. Was in town for business at UW and the location was perfect. Area was bustling but apartment away from the street. Comfortable, spacious accommodations. Check in and check out were a breeze and Shel was way responsive. Very highly recommended!
