I felt welcomed. Everyone was pretty friendly. I stayed for less than a week and was able to get work done as the house is pretty quiet and there is rarely anyone in common areas during the day. My roommate was pretty cool, had good conversations with her. Overall, it was a conve…
Great house captain and owner of house (Paul and Andy, respectively). Super sweet, helpful, open, and willing to work with me. House is full of loving souls who are working hard on their projects. What I especially appreciated was the heterogeneous quality of this particular …
Response from Andy:
Great feedback, Leena. We will be increasing the frequency of our professional cleaning, and taking steps to encourage other guests to clean up after themselves more consistently. You're right that the shorter term the guest, the more common such problems are. Regarding number of kitchens and bathrooms, we just added an additional bathroom to the building and are remodeling all of the others to make them more comfortable and easier to keep consistently clean. And we're remodeling two of the three kitchens to improve throughput, storage, and counter space, so that the flow of people works better. Regarding the tight space, that's here to stay. This is not a place to kick back in a private house and enjoy the solitude. It is instead a place filled with interesting people, some of whom might be sharing your room. Regarding proximity of grocery stores and other amenities, it's a trade-off. This house is across the street from Lake Union, with amazing views of the lake that define Seattle. There is no place in town that has both such spectacular Lake Union views and a grocery store a block away. For people who prefer proximity to grocery stores and other amenities, our Io House location on Capitol Hill, with a full size grocery store one block away and myriad dining options within a few blocks may be a better choice.
Grokhome is all about building fun and creative tech communities. We have three different tech-oriented group living houses in Seattle, Io House on Capitol Hill, Cor 36 in the South Lake Union area, and Romero near the University of Washington. the prices listed are per night,…
