My first AirBnB experience was superb, thanks to Kerry. Her apartment was delightful and perfect for my needs. House instructions were clear and her caring touches were evident throughout. Her gracious hospitality and professionalism ensures a perfect stay every time. I look forward to renting again.
Kerry's place was exceptionally clear and nicely decorated. It would be a great place for an extended stay. We enjoyed the neighborhood - the great markets and the Burke-Gilman trail. Kerry was a helpful, gracious host. Highly recommended.
Kerry met us when we checked in and made sure that we were ok. She is very welcoming and helpful.
The apartment was spotless and had everything that we would possibly need for our stay.
The location was very convenient, but I recommend that you have a car. That will help you move around a bit faster.
You can walk to the local market for groceries and deli food. There are also a couple of very nice parks within 5-10 min walk of the apartment. Great for families!!!
All in all a great stay, and we would definitely recommend this to our friends.
Kerry was a lovely, welcoming, and gracious host. Her apartment was exactly as advertised. The location was convenient. The fireplace in the bedroom made the space super cosy! I had a wonderful stay, and will definitely look to stay again if I am back in Seattle.
We loved our stay at Kerry's quiet and elegantly furnished apartment.
We appreciated the private entrance, the thoughtfully equipped kitchen (everything was top quality) and the beautifully appointed bedroom.
Her home is in a quiet residential neighborhood close to a fabulous food coop.
Kerry was an exceedingly thoughtful host with lots of great recommendations for dining, galleries and book stores (our passion). We have already recommended her apartment to friends looking for a Seattle getaway.
This space is cozy, charming and well decorated and Kerry is a fabulous host! A highlight for us was the fireplace facing the bed in the bedroom - So delightful! Overall this was a great stay, and in the future when visiting Seattle we'd love to book with Kerry again!
Kerry is not only a warm and considerate host, but she also has wonderful taste, as evidenced by her beautiful apartment and her fantastic recommendations for places to eat and visit. Her apartment had everything we needed for our stay in Seattle, and it was a perfect landing place for two people over the holiday season--10 - 15 minutes away from downtown, Capitol Hill and Ballard by car and a walk to University village and trails. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a place to land in Seattle!
Kerry is a very nice and warm host. Her place is very clean and comfortable. LOVE the gas fire place - creates a wonderful environment and heats the room nicely! Parking is a bit tight and the house number is difficult to see after dark. Over all, it is a great place to stay in Seattle!
I'd stay there again!
For prospective guests who may be wondering about parking, the parking area in front of the apartment is 49 feet long. Since the average car is about 15 feet long, two average size cars easily fit in that space with an extra 19 feet for maneuvering while parking. Mateo drove a full-size pickup truck with an extended bed during her stay, which was approximately 19 feet long. Her truck and my car parked together left about 15 feet for maneuvering while parking. I don’t drive a truck, so it looked like plenty of space to me, but had I known that it felt tight for Mateo, I would have gladly moved my car and given her the entire parking area. Most guests drive small to medium rental cars, so this hasn’t been an issue. It would be helpful if guests planning to drive trucks or RVs during their visit would alert me to this ahead of time so we can discuss parking options. There is plenty of available parking near the apartment, where I can park to accommodate guests if needed. Regarding the house number: this is located by the front door in light colored standard sized house numbers. I was not aware that it was difficult to see at night, now that I know, I will make it more visible for guests who arrive after dark.
My husband stayed and Kerry's place for several weeks. He enjoyed it very much! Very clean, cozy and a great location. Kerry is also a wonderful host.
Kerry and her place was great and exactly as expected. We got in late and she left the key for us which was very convenient. Kerry was super nice and the next day showed us around and gave us all the information we needed to know. Being that there are very few hotel options in the area and Kerry's house was perfect for us. We'll definitely book with her again and have recommended her place to our family for the next time we're all in town.
Thanks again Kerry!
P.S. Seattle can be hilly and if you're a runner like us you'll really appreciate the flat running trail 0.2 miles from her home. Right behind the Met which also has free cheese samples!!
