The rental is a spacious, well-lit mother-in-law apartment located in the basement of a 1920’s “Seattle box” style single family house. The house is located in the middle of the charming Wallingford neighborhood and is within easy walking distance of a grocery store, myriad restaurants, cafes and other services, and is also near Gas Works Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Green Lake, the Woodland Park Zoo, and the University of Washington. Downtown Seattle is 20 minutes away by bike or bus, with the bus stop being one block away. Free on-street parking is also available.
The apartment has a separate entrance along the side of the house, a well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi and AppleTV. The bedroom has a queen sized bed and the living room has a sofa bed. Note that although the ceiling has good soundproofing, you may hear an occasional low rumble from the three boys above! The property is kid-friendly, has chickens and a grey cat named “Cloud,” a basketball hoop, and a great deck with views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle.
No smoking in the unit or on the property; no pets.
This Wallingford suite is charming! We had a fantastic stay in this lovely neighbourhood. The suite is accurately described by David. It is really clean, furnished nicely, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and lots of great books to read. This would be a fantastic place for short or long term stay. Also walking distance to some great restaurants, shops both in Wallingford and Freemont. No problem parking on the street and it’s free, instead of $30-$60 a night in downtown Seattle. Check in was efficient and David was attentive to any questions we had. You can even borrow some bikes to take advantage of the trail that runs along the water with fantastic views of the city and to some tasty breweries! I would definitely stay here again.
David was very attentive, and quick to communicate (both prior to arrival, and during). He anticipated needs prior to my arrival (which was very helpful, including arrival time).
He was always polite and respectful.
The flat was also wonderful and as advertised, clean, very close to metro to get to downtown. Wallingford had many restaurants and shops worth seeing, and Fremont and University City nearby.
Cozy during the rain, too.
The lovely apartment was just as pictured. It is in a nice neighborhood with plenty of walkability and shops nearby. The kitchen is well appointed and the furnishings throughout are new, comfortable and tasteful. Three of us stayed comfortably here and would definitely visit again.
This is a great little apartment for a long or short-term stay; it had everything we needed to feel comfortable and in such a great area of Seattle. The price was reasonable, we would easily stay here again!
I spent seven weeks staying in David's apartment without issues or complaints. The apartment is immaculately maintained and well stocked for cooks and readers, and the neighborhood is very pleasant. David and his family were courteous and didn't intrude. I would absolutely stay again given the chance.
We were easily able to connect with our host through email. David sent an access code to use to enter the unit as we never met face to face. The apartment was very roomy and had a lot of natural light from its many windows. It did not feel like a basement! We were very comfortable. Everything felt so fresh and new!
The neighborhood was wonderful and felt very safe. Street parking was easy, and we enjoyed walking to Irwyn's coffee house around the corner for morning bagels.
We will definitely stay here again!
Great neighbourhood, great host, even better place! This was a great experience! The pictures don't do it justice, doesn't show the great new couch! Green, and clean! Would definitely stay here again!
