This was our first airbnb experience, and we could not have asked for better. Kevin's apartment is charmingly decorated, very comfortable, and ideally located. There's a coffee shop on one corner, and an adorable breakfast place and your perfectly sleazy latenite bar on the other. Even two rapid dry cleaners within a couple blocks. It's easy to get anywhere in town from Eastlake.
Kevin's apartment couldn't be cuter, and he couldn't be a better host. We were left keys to let ourselves in and found refreshments in our room ready for us. Kevin works long hours and keeps busy on the weekends so you likely wont spend a lot of time with him, but he's delightful when you do.
We couldn't recommend anyplace higher.
House matched description & photos perfectly. Located a stones throw from a direct road straight into the heart of the city so very easy to navigate. (With none of the noise)
At most a two minute walk from convenience store and a selection of cafes & restaurant/bars for food anytime of the day.
Kevin was a very polite and engaging host, a shining example of the experiences I've had recommending me to use airbnb.
Kevin was the perfect host! The house was super sweet and so nicely decorated. He really has awesome taste. Our room was nice, with a big bed and beside he had put bottles of Pellegrino, magazines about Seattle and fruit. The (shared) bathroom was really good too with a hot, nice shower and big towels. It was our first time in Seattle and Kevin helped us with tips. We had such a great time, hanging around in Capitol Hill (can really recommend the restaurants Presse (french) and Stateside (french-vietnamese) and the bar Unicorn.
I would recommend Kevin and his beautiful house to anyone! Thank you Kevin :)

I arrived Kevin's place 6 hours later than I planned. But Kevin was waiting and made me feel like home. It was always pleasant to talk to Kevin under whatever topic. He gave me plenty of suggestions regarding 'what to do's and 'where to go's. In respect to the home, it's all in the photos and I think the best word to describe Kevin's place is: gorgeous. At last, you will feel very much happy and warm when you receive text messages from Kevin asking how's your everything going everyday, if you stay at his place. Highly recommend.
Hosts Kevin and Matt were extremely nice and welcoming. Their home is very tasteful and tidy. The neighborhood is great. The room and bed were comfortable. However, we had not understood from the listing or the reviews that we would be staying with our hosts in their home, and sharing the bathroom and other facilities with them. We had decided against staying with friends so we could have privacy, and were disappointed with our booking. As it turned out, our hosts "crashed" with friends, but did not tell us until they returned mid morning as we were leaving, and after we had already spent the evening and morning trying not to disturb them or monoploize the bathroom.
I apologize for the misunderstanding. Our listing is shown as a 'Private Room' -- per airbnb's verbiage: "Private rooms are great for when you prefer a little privacy, yet still value a local connection. When you book a private room, you'll have a bedroom to yourself, but will share some spaces with others. With a private room, you'll be able to wake up to greet your new friends in the kitchen and have the freedom to bid them adieu at bedtime."
Wonderful! Kevin's place is every bit as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. My husband and I were very comfortable for the night we spent there while in town to see a film. The location is great for good restaurants and easy access by bus or on foot both to downtown and the university; it was exactly what we wanted. While our busy schedule in the evening and the morning didn't allow us time to meet Kevin in person, he is incredibly easy to get in touch with. His messages were very friendly and helpful, and the place itself is easy to find. We felt very welcome and very pleased with our stay. I'd recommend Kevin's place to anyone looking for a beautiful, quiet, comfortable space in the evening!
Excellent location and a lovely (website hidden)'s well connected to the city centre . Would highly recommend Kevin's listing as a great base from which to explore Seattle as well .Kevin and Matt were both nice and friendly. I Couldn't spend much time with them as I was out most of the time . I will definitely book Kevin's next time around and hopefully will get to meet him .
I'm a consultant for veterinary hospitals, having transplanted to the Pacific Northwest in late 2008. I grew up in southern California, spent some time abroad working in Europe and lived in Atlanta for a brief stint.
I now call Seattle home and am eager to share my place with travelers for a more personal stay while in the city. I enjoy the outdoors, travel, design/horticulture and a variety of city activities. Outgoing, creating and energetic, I live my life by paying it forward and feel that the first conversation you have with a person is a pretty unbeatable experience! Cheers -
