Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I couldn't have found better quarters anywhere for location, price, and amenities!
    Kerry was most accommodating with this first-time user of Airbnb. The quiet location offered the best king bed I've ever slept on. Lovely large kitchen with room to move about. I can easily see why it is so frequently booked.

  • Kerry's quiet apartment was just (email hidden) a lovely neighborhood, away from the hustle and bustle and traffic, but an easy quick trip to downtown. It was clean, and had a well-equipped kitchen. Kerry greeted us, made sure we had what we needed, provided a notebook with clear instructions and suggestions for our stay. A really excellent natural foods grocery in walking distance was a plus!

  • Kerry is an amazing host. She was very accommodating while booking her place (she helped out with the kinks and was very patient with me) and during our stay. When we arrived, she gave us a tour of the apartment and provided suggestions regarding activities to do in the area. She lives by an organic market, PCC, which is really nice if you wanted to do a night in. The kitchen is small but functional, like the rest of the aparment. The bathroom was nice; the heated floor tiles were an added bonus. Our favorite part of the apartment was the fire place in the room (the bed is King sized and comfy so when we were at the apartment we stayed in the room) gave the place a home-like feel. Overall, the aparment was what we expected. My friend and I were in Seattle for the weekend to check out UW and to get away from LA for a bit so we were in and out a lot. Once we settled in, Kerry didn't bother us and we were able to reach her easily via text and email. I suggest going through the binder with the house rules; it lays everything out for you which was nice. I would definitely stay at her place again when I go back to Seattle. She made my first Air b&b experience worthwhile and I will be recommending the community to others. I love the personal feel of Air b&b plus the price is cheaper than a hotel & way more comfortable.

  • 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.

    March 2014
  • 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.

    March 2014
  • 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.

    Thanks Kerry.

  • 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.

    January 2014
  • 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.

    January 2014
  • 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!

    January 2014
  • 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!

I enjoy writing, making art, gardening & cooking. I am able to walk or ride my bike for most local outings because our home is right next to the Burke-Gilman bike trail.
