Fabulous home! Huge "wow factor" in the quality of the home and furnishings. We really loved the neighborhood too! Lots of great cafes and restaurants within a couple blocks. For runners/bikers you can easily access the trail that parallels the waterway between Lake Union and the Ballard Locks.
Seth is a great host! He communicates quickly with and is very helpful. The house was immaculately clean and ready in every way for our family. We had a great time staying in his home!
Seth's house was fantastic, super clean, and a short walk from nearby coffee shops and good eats. If you're looking for a place in Seattle, this is it!
Host was very accommodating and was a wealth of information for the local area. Professional yet friendly demeanour. Eager to help out with problems and answer questions. Would recommend to anyone looking for a house with modern decor, a spacious common area and a convenient location.
The house is big enough for a family like us. We spent 3 months in there. There's a lot of memories. The location is good too. It's very convenient for me to go to downtown Seattle.
An awesome apartment in a nice neighborhood. Me and two of my colleagues really enjoyed our stay. Key transaction went smoothly. Nothing to complain about. Will try to book next time I am in Seattle.
The location was great . Seths unit was very nice ! The unit was not as clean as we are used to .

About the Host, Seth
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.
