Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lovely spot. Welcoming and cozy. Julie is a top notch host.

    April 2014
  • Julie's cottage is a very comfortable place to relax, especially during a rainy Seattle weekend. Great light and very quiet. Quant neighborhood with lots of restaurants and places to walk. Julie is a wonderful host.

    March 2014
  • Julie's cottage was a pleasure to stay at. Everything was very clean and relaxing. There are several windows in the small space so everything feels very fresh and airy. The hot tub was also definately welcomed!

  • Steve and I had a great time here. The cottage is cute and warm with a comfy bed and an AWESOME HOT TUB! The landscaping in the backyard and the abundant natural light inside the cottage were added bonuses too. Great location because of the cute community, close restaurants, parks and walk on Lake Washington. Thanks you Julie!

  • Super cute place! We really enjoyed staying here. The hot tub on a chilly rainy night was perfect. Julie was so nice and went over everything we needed when we got there. The lite rail is just a short walk (10 mins) away, used it to go downtown. Would definitely stay here again!

    February 2014
  • My partner and I had a lovely time staying at the Garden Cottage! The space is calm, clean, and smells nice. We really enjoyed soaking in the hot tub and snoozing in the comfy bed. Two thumbs up!

  • Julie's relaxing garden cottage is a true hidden gem! Upon arrival Julie was a very accommodating host telling us all about her charming Columbia City, which is the quaint town with some excellent restaurants and shops nearby. The cottage itself is very cozy, clean and nicely decorated and is the perfect size for a traveling couple. The bed was VERY comfortable and the electric fireplace heater kept us warm at night. Julie let us use the jacuzzi every night and was even sweet enough to turn it on upon request when we were out to let it warm up. She was easy to communicate with and I'd give her an A+ for all her help and generosity.
    Great proximity: It was a very convenient 15 minute drive from the airport and only 10 minute walk to the nearest light rail public transit that takes you right into downtown Seattle. Also it was only a short walk to downtown Columbia City. The location was just far enough outside Seattle to not be located in the hussle and bussle of the city, but still only about a 20 minute drive/light rail ride into Seattle. I would highly recommended this location based on our amazing stay! Must Go!

    February 2014
  • We were very comfortable in Julie's guest cottage. The weather was mostly blustery west coast winter rain but the gas fireplace kept the cottage cozy and the hot tub was great after a run along Lake Washington. Julie was a welcoming host and gave us a list of local places to eat and activities in Seattle. We enjoyed exploring Columbia City. We would like to return to Julie's cottage in warmer weather so we could enjoy her beautiful garden, morning coffee on the cottage porch looks like it would be heaven.

    December 2012
  • My partner and I had a great experience at Julie's garden cottage.

    The hot tub was the perfect way to warm up after spending the day exploring Seattle in chilly November. A tiny gas stove was enough to keep the cottage warm and cozy. The bed was comfortable, and the light and airy space was a joy to come home to.

    Julie was particularly helpful in giving structure to our spontaneous (aka unorganized) trip. She recommended a great diner a few blocks away, and even wrote up an itinerary for the rest of our trip to Point Roberts and Vancouver.

    The last day, Ursula the cat made a cameo appearance. She and Julie made us feel right at home.

    I'd be back to the Garden Cottage to experience Seattle in the Spring or Summer!

    November 2012
  • The cottage was as described. Just the feeling of never have left home. I would come back & experience it all over again.

Hi, my name is Julie and I live and work in Seattle. I'm a 'people' person and love being an Airbnb host. In 2008 I built my gorgeous garden cottage for visits from family as well as to share with Seattle visitors as a vacation rental. It's truly a special, peaceful space infused with lots of love and it's ready for you to call your home away from home. I enjoy the challenge of creating both a beautiful and edible garden, trying new and exotic foods, dancing the tango, sailing on Puget Sound and Cape Cod, hiking, live music, practicing yoga (I'm also a certified yoga teacher and therapist) and all of the amazing outdoor opportunities the NW has to offer. I am excited to be embarking on a new career in real estate, so if you are looking to make the Puget Sound area your new permanent home, I would love to help you find that perfect place. I hope to meet you! Julie
