  • This is an easy story to tell. Arrived, stayed and left with no problems. Ideal cyclist location for exploring lake Washington / mercer island etc. A foodie would freak out at the two placed we went to right by the apt. The accommodations were wonderful, modern and comfortable. I would stay again.

  • Had a great stay at the house. The place is very nice, cozy and well-furnished. The neighborhood is pretty nice and have some nice eateries nearby (paseo, revel, the whale wins). Seth is extremely helpful and responsive. Definitely recommend!

  • Place is fantastic. Location is great. In fact, location allowed us to explore an area other than downtown. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Seth.

    February 2014
  • Seth was quick and very helpful with our last minute stay! House was awesome and very centrally located. Thanks again!

  • Seth's place is terrific - very comfortable, clean and upscale. It is also nested near Wallingford and Freemont, two of my favorite Seattle neighborhoods. It really is a great place and exactly what I was looking for. And Seth has made the renting experience simple and streamlined, and was quick to respond to any questions I had.

    I would highly recommend Seth and his property.

  • Our stay at Seth's house was great! The design of the house is beautiful and the location is perfect. We went to Ivan's salmon restaurant for dinner and Portage Bay Cafe for breakfast, both also highly recommended. Everything at this house was easy, and there are directions provided to make sure your stay is comfortable.

  • Really cool, modern condo with a super quiet location (but just around the corner from bagels!). We met Seth upon arrival and he gave us a tour, great guy. The kitchen in this place is a standout amenity; it's massive, and well-equipped: Seth had just gotten all new pots and pans. But we also thought the rain shower lovely (he even provides organic toiletries) and the bed ultra comfortable. Oh yeah and the TV is huuuuuuge :) Highly recommended, particularly as a hotel alternative b/c downtown is 10 min away by bus.

    Response from Seth:

    thanks for the warm review, so glad you guys enjoyed and put everything to good use. Hopefully you made something delicious!

  • Seth's place was the perfect spot for my friends and I to take a short vacation in Seattle. The place was beautiful and tastefully decorated and I was met with the utmost professionalism from Seth. We contacted Seth relatively late as a last minute decision for a trip and he made every effort to accommodate us. If you are looking for a place to stay in Seattle I would definitely recommend contacting Seth!

  • For what it's worth, here's a review of Seth's pad coming from a Seattleite's perspective. For reference, my wife and I work/live/play in Seattle, and are on the lower end of our 30's.

    We recently found ourselves homeless for 4 days due to delays in the construction of our new home. We saw that Seth's place was available for the dates we needed and immediately submitted a reservation request. We received confirmation from Seth within 30 minutes, which was quite nice since we were in a time-sensitive situation.

    Seth's town-home is really an amazing piece of property. When we arrived the place was spotless, inviting, and incredibly spacious. The kitchen has a great gas range and is more than adequately equipped with cookware/flatware to prepare any type of meal. The leather couch in the living room is deceptively comfortable, as we spend many hours just lounging around like vegetable in front of his huge wall mounted tv. Check the closets downstairs and there are a few throw blankets to cuddle up with. Seth has radiant heating on the 2nd floor of his place. If you haven't experienced the magic of radiant floor heating in sub-30 degree Seattle weather, you really are missing out on something special. My favorite part of the house though was the shower in the master suite. The shower has a rain-head with great pressure, and 3 body jets that hit you from the sides making it feel like you are standing in a car wash. I came home from a long day of snowboarding during our stay and can tell you that stepping into that shower was sublime.

    As for the location, Seth's place is pretty much in the heart of Fremont. It is situated on an incredibly quiet street with ample street parking which was great since we had 2 vehicles with us. He lives minutes from some of the best places to eat in Fremont. Here are the places that we ate at during our little stay-cation. Locals and tourists DO NOT miss the following, all within 4 min drive of the house:

    I would recommend Seth's rental to almost anyone, as is location has so much to offer. If you are like us and like music and nightlife, Fremont is home to numerous bars and live music venues merely a stone's throw away. If you have a family and are traveling with children, Gas Works Park, the Troll, and the Zoo are all within a few minutes drive. If you are trying to decide between this place and ANY hotel room in the city, stay here. The a room at the 4-Seasons is at least $300 on a weekend, and does not come with 3 bathrooms. A downtown hotel WILL charge you $80 per night to park 2 vehicles vs. FREE at Seth's. Logistically, this house is in the center of it all.

    Happy to give 5 stars for a great rental.

  • The modern house is not suitable for 3 adult couples but rather for a family with children. It has 3 bedrooms: one nice bedroom with a comfortable bed and adjoining bathroom, two bedrooms downstairs: one bedroom with a comfortable bed and a non-equipped room with a mattress on the floor and a bedside table with broken lamp. This room is only suitable for young childeren.
    We were disappointed with the last room and called Seth by phone to ask if he could help us, maybe advice about a hotel/B&B accommodation nearby. He was staying in San Francisco and said that he could do nothing for us?? Later he sent literal the following message : I'm sorry you don't feel that the home is as described. I e-mail airbnb and have been trying to reach them to see if they have any suggestions. It might be possible to have a bed frame delivered tomorrow.
    But after this message nothing happened??? Finally we found for one couple an expensive hotelroom downtown for the next nights.
    Furthermore, the house only has 4 chairs to sit down. Consequently, you can not all sit down to eat and on the terrace you will found only 3 deck chairs. The rest of guests has to stand up for dinner, souper or breakfast????
    Another minus was the smelly towels. We had to wash a few times before we could use them.
    The description on the site is confusing:
    On the right of the site there is mentioned as Bed type: real bed
    In the text you will found the following discription;:
    Ground level has two bedrooms - each room has queen size bed, one opens up to a cute patio.....

    Conclusion:
    it was our worst experience ever on customer care and welcoming.

    We ( 3 couples) booked for 5 nights the house of Seth and the price was :
    Accommodation €1968
    Airbnb Service €118
    Total €2086

About
I'm a global traveler with an appreciation for architectural details and delicious street foods. I own a home in Seattle that I rent full-time, and have an apartment here in SF where I rent either the extra bedroom or the whole house If you're considering coming as a guest without a full itinerary, I can give you the local scoop on a lot of great activities that you won't read about online or in your guide books. Or, if you know the area or have it all figured out, that's cool too. As a guest, I know that Hosts make the best guests since we treat homes as if they were our own and take extra care to return everything as it was found. When I'm not hosting, I might be out running, rowing (seattle), cycling, or wearing down the tread on my hiking boots. Either that, or perched on a neighborhood barstool catching up with the gang.
