  • Great deal.. Beats any hotel pricing in the seat and has all the amenities of a home. Private key code entry way on side of home. Plenty of privacy.. Would stay again

  • This is a spacious apartment in the heart, I mean, heart of Wallingford - one of the most walkable (restaurants, bars, movies, pharmacy, grocery) neighborhoods in all of Seattle. Very nicely furnished, warm and welcoming. David responded really quickly and was super friendly and easy to deal with. We give David and this cute spacious apartment five stars.

  • I had a wonderful stay at David's apartment. It is a large space with generous amenities. David has a clever combination lock system for maintaining security of the unit which is easy to use.
    The full kitchen was more than I needed, and the multiple thermostats controlling the heaters allowed comfort in all rooms.
    I was only in the unit for about 4 hours of "awake time" over my 2 day stay, but I was very relaxed the entire time.
    I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if the occasion arises.

  • The apartment was lovely with a beautiful view of Seattle in a peaceful neighborhood. It's walking distance to numerous restaurants and bus stops. David was friendly and responded quickly. We'd be happy to stay here again.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it! The apartment is in a great neighborhood and is close to restaurants, bars, and grocery stores, all very walkable too! The apartment itself is well-equipped, comfortable, and accommodating. I loved the kitchen! My only suggestion would be to bring ear plugs if you like to sleep in. The noise didn't really bother us and was never an issue when we were going to bed, but just note that is a basement apartment, so there is some noise/footsteps coming from above. Would highly recommend this apartment! Will be staying here again in the future.

  • David's home was the perfect spot for our weekend getaway; very clean and organized with all the amenities of a hotel and more. Such a quaint little neighborhood and close to bus stops for downtown, I would highly recommend it!

  • The Wallingford apartment was a wonderfully, clean, convenient and private location, with-in walking distance to stores, eateries etc. The furnishings were very comfortable, kitchen nicely supplied with cooking utensils and tea. The location does require climbing up a flight of stairs to the apartment, but is well lit and access into the apartment was very easy. I enjoyed my stay very much and would rent it again without hesitation.

  • This space was great! Home away from home. You have more amenities than a hotel room offers (full kitchen, utensils, washer/dryer, Apple TV, Netflix, bathroom floor heater) and in a beautiful neighborhood but for a good deal cheaper. The only thing you need to consider is the fact that you are staying downstairs from a family living their day to day life, because you can definitely hear foot steps especially if the kids run around, which can be pretty loud. So just keep that in mind. David was great with communication before and during. We never crossed paths so we didn't officially meet but he was always helpful. We didn't have a car but we made it work with the buses, which was nearby. Just familiarize yourself with king county metro website (trip planner). Seattles food is amazing! Just a side not: book a tour with Savor Seattle Food Tour!!! Highlight of the trip.

  • David's apartment was fantastic. It was the perfect place to stay with our 1 year old daughter on our trip to Seattle. The place was very nice and very clean and stocked with amenities. Their neighborhood is also wonderful, one block from several buses and a short walk to numerous parks, cafes, etc...

    David was also kind enough to lend us a pack n' play and a high chair for our daughter to use. This made our trip so much easier.

    If you are coming to Seattle and need a great place to stay this is it!
