We truly enjoyed our experience staying in this apartment. Jamilah went above and beyond to make sure we have everything we needed, even though she was on vacation and not at home. The apartment was exactly as pictured and described. Although the ceilings were low, we didn't have any trouble (after one head bonk, my 6'3" husband learned to watch the light!). We didn't use the kitchen but the bed was super comfortable. We would definitely stay there again -- thanks Jamilah!
The hosts were very nice, the apartment was spotless, well-located and well-stocked. My only complaint is that the floors were ice cold and the ceilings are very, very low. No sun salutations this past week!
Despite fairly warm weather, your continuous and excessive heat usage, you
are the first and only one in nearly 6 years to complain about the floor being ice cold. As for the ceiling, that was disclosed in the description of the apartment.
Thanks for staying with us.
Jamilah was a great host! She's friendly, responsive and very accommodating. We had a late flight and Jamilah allowed us to stay until our flight left because there was no one scheduled to check in the next day. She gave us plenty of restaurant suggestions. The apartment is located in Capital Hill which is such a convenient and central place to stay when in Seattle! Highly recommend this apartment and this neighborhood. The apartment is extremely clean. There was tea which we enjoyed every morning. Towels, bedding, bed and living space was super cozy and comfortable. Overall, a fantastic experience!
My group came to Seattle for a short getaway, but we still wanted to be comfortable. This space felt like a hotel with it's great modern decor and styling, but was still cozy. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable. Jamilah responded quickly from the first contact, and checked in on us to see if we needed anything and to make sure our stay was going well. I really appreciated her care, and could definitely see it in her attention to detail, from her design touches, thorough how-to's and explanations of the quirks of the place, making sure there was more than enough bedding and towels to go around, and thoughtfulness in terms of the amenities that were provided. The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood, but is in Capitol Hill with lots of great restaurants around, and is very conveniently located and walkable. The only caveats I have are that being a basement apartment, the ceilings are a little lower so the very tall might have an issue. Also if you have a car I would definitely spring for the parking permit, as parking is very difficult in the area. My friends and I were very impressed with the place and would definitely stay again.
Wonderful location, right in the heart of Capitol Hill. I pretty much walked everywhere my entire stay. The hosts were extremely welcoming and flexible. We really enjoyed the space, save for a few oddities like a fairly low ceiling. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Seattle!
Thank you for the wonderful review Sara & Benjamin. In regards to the low ceiling; we are sorry if this came as bit of a surprise to you b/c everything is disclosed beforehand in the written description on the airbnb website. We have been 5 star airbnb hosts for over 5 years (Super Hosts) and if there's one thing we've learnt over time that is to disclose absolutely everything and to be as honest and up front as possible. FYI the ceiling is lower than normal because the house is over 110 years old which I am sure you noticed. Hope you do come stay with us the next time you're in Seattle.
Hosts were wonderful. They left messages with all information, stopped by to introduce themselves and say hello, responded immediately to any request (e.g. for a cutting board in the kitchen). They were present, but not intrusive in any way.
About the Host, Jamilah
I'm an Afro-German living in Seattle with my husband. We were born to host and with our love of real estate and interior design/landscaping we decided to put together this trendy 2 bedroom apartment right in the heart of Capitol Hill :)
