Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great little hideaway in a fantastic location.

    Awesome airbnb'ers, they looked after my need very well and took care of my experience there brilliantly

    February 2014
  • We came back for a second stay and things were great. Even the shower head was fixed and worked well. Amy was again accommodating with our check in time. Would return again on our next trip to Seattle.

    January 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay in this West Seattle spot! Everything was as shown in the photos, a very comfortable, homey space to snuggle into after a day of exploring. A nice kitchen if one wants to cook, excellent tech solutions, tv, smart phone docking station, kind and attentive hosts, a sweet coffee shop within walking distance. It feels very safe, secure, and the sounds of children upstairs was lovely and comforting. We recommend highly.

    January 2014
  • We had a great time. Room was clean and comfortable. Amy was accommodating when our flight was delayed and we had to check in late. The only problem was the overhead shower. There was low pressure, but the side handheld unit was fine. Looking forward to our next stay in January.

    December 2013
  • We had a very nice stay here. The accommodations are exactly as they're pictured and our hosts made everything very easy. We were just passing through and spent a single night but there were plenty of amenities provided from a hair dryer to a coffee machine to a Wii. They were very helpful with recommendations for local restaurants and even set up an extra pull-out bed for our daughter. We didn't really now the area and it seemed a little more 'out of the action' than we might have hoped but that had more to do with our own unfamiliarity with Seattle. There is a fantastic nearby cafe called "Bird on a Wire" which really hits the spot too!

    November 2013
  • Amy was really sweet and helpful and the space was perfect for my hubby and me and our 6-week-old baby. She had a swing and rock-n-play for her to use also. Very clean and cozy place with most of the conveniences of home :)

    October 2013
  • Very comfortable room and Amy was very accommodating and easy to work with. We really appreciated being able to stay in West Seattle, close to where I grew up. Thanks for everything.

    September 2013
  • My husband, 10lb dog, Emmy and I stayed at Nathan and Amy's airbnb in West Seattle for 3 weeks, our daughter from NewYork also joined us there for a week. It was great, a home away from home while we visited our other daughter and son in law and granddaughter in Seattle. We had everything we could need and more, comfy bed, washer and dryer access, full kitchen, and extras like the Wii with Netflix. We would definitely go back, great location, we really like West Seattle and enjoyed our stay immensely. Thanks Amy and Nathan.

  • Our overall stay here was good. Some PROS and CONS.

    *Location - liked being in West Seattle, close to shops and amenities. Being close to Lincoln Park was very nice also. We could walk down to the ocean view.
    *Cleanliness - the suite was nice and clean. A few stains on the carpet but nothing major. Bathroom was very clean also.
    *Comfortable - our bed was comfortable, it was nice to be in a basement suite rather a hotel room.
    *Hosts - Amy was very friendly and helpful.
    *Netflix - that was nice for our children.

    *Smell - the smell when you park in the driveway was of cat urine, not pleasant. We have a cat so we understand cat smell, but it was not a pleasant oder when you first arrive at your lodging.
    *No key - there was no key to our door, we only had the opener to the big garage door. I did not like that at all.
    *Fruit flies - fruit fly problem, I had to make my own trap they were so bad. Although I read it was the season for fruit flies so there may have been nothing they could have done to control that.
    *Closet - not a huge deal, as this is someones home that am staying in :) But there was a closet in the livingroom area that had a lock on it. It creeped me As it had shutters so it was really creepy knowing that something was behind there that I couldn't see.
    *No phone - unlike a hotel there is no phone in your room. Which may pose a problem for some people, we didn't mind because we had our cellphones.

    Other then those few things it was a pleasant stay. If they supplied a key in the future we would stay again.

    Response from Amy:

    Hi Billie,

    I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the feedback. I'm just going to respond to CONS you had listed to clarify for future guests and let you know what we're doing to address the ones we can.

    *Door key - Door does lock from the inside with a deadbolt and garage is pretty secure/watched but we will be installing a new lock/deadbolt during the off season.
    *Smell - We had one other guest who thought they smelled cat urine outside and we found out this is the boxwoods, which smell unpleasant on warm summer days ((website hidden))
    *Fruit flies. Sorry for the annoyance. You're right that we can't avoid them completely, especially with back-to-back bookings but we've found that a glass of apple cider vinegar with a couple drops of dish soap gets the job done within 24 hours. We'll be sure to keep an eye out in the future.
    *Phone. This is another thing I will add during the off season, once I have a chance to run a network cable into the apartment.
    *Storage closet. Unfortunately not much we can do here--we need our storage space. If it makes anyone reading feel better we don't mind telling you we use that storage room for our Christmas decorations, kids clothes/toys, and for the winter blankets and sheets for the suite. Probably all the same things you have in the storage closet at your house. :)

  • We were attending a wedding in West Seattle and the location of this studio was perfect. We love to hike and enjoyed walking to Lincoln Park every morning. It was a little claustrophobic being in a basement but the people we were visiting in West Seattle had a nice backyard with a firepit so it really didn't matter. Wonderful to hae a full kitchen with all the amenities. Thanks! Our family would stay again.
