I stayed in Seattle for 4 weeks, so I was looking for a comfortable place, which I could feel most at home at. Unfortunately, there were a few major things that made the stay unpleasant and generally made me avoid spending time in the apartment. In more details:
Pros: The apartment was in a good location, from which you can easily access restaurants, nightlife spots, shopping areas, transportation and really all the essentials. Judy was quick to respond to all my messages, so communication was very easy.
Cons: The worst thing for me was that the place was very unclean. The insides of the kitchen counters were covered with some thick black sticky dirt, which despite my best effort I was not able to clean and I gave up on using the utilities altogether. The bed sheets and towels had not been changed since the last visitor, which is completely unacceptable for me. And on top of everything else, on my last day I found a pair of dirty socks in one vase...
Another drawback was the building itself - it was quite old, so the floors were squeaking very loudly. The isolation was not good, so it was cold inside and you could hear everything that was going on in the neighbors. I was waking up with the people in the apartment above, whose alarm clock I could hear at 6 am.
Lastly, the furniture in the apartment was old, so a lot of things kept shaking when you touch them (e.g. wardrobe, iron board, etc.), which made me feel a bit dizzy.
The description of the unit was accurate and the neighborhood was great. It was a little noisy on the weekend when the bars let out, but not too bad. Picking up the key in the lock box was easy.
We didn't meet Judy, however, we didn't need to as we found the keys relatively easily just a block away from the apartment - which was very convenient seeing as we were arriving late at night. Our trip from the train station was quick and easy via taxi, too!
The apartment itself is in a great location, located close to town. The neighbourhood is fantastic, offering some lovely local bakeries and restaurants that we frequented during our stay. We also recommend the local barber - really great service!
The apartment looks exactly like the image, and accommodated us well - although there was a strange odour throughout the apartment. The unit felt slightly unclean too, and we were a little disheartened to find the MP3 player and heater either broken or missing.
For the price we paid, however, we still had a great stay - we used the high-speed internet a lot, and also frequented the Netflix account on the television, too. It was affordable for Seattle as a location!
Judy is a fantastic hostess with an amazing location in Seattle. We had such as great time exploring Capitol Hill and were able to get to any part of the city because of the central location. Unlike other reviewers, we found Judy's place to be spotless and perfectly cleaned. Judy was quick and very kind in all her communications. If you decide to stay with Judy, make sure you check out Analog Coffee and Crumble & Flake Patisserie just around the corner - trust me you will not be disappointed.
