The thing I remember the most about the neighborhood is the quiet. We had a very relaxing time at the studio after enjoying the hustle of the city. The address is easy to find and getting to different parts of the city was a breeze. Street parking was easy as well. The Studio is clean and well appointed, the bed is comfortable, the tiled shower and granite sink are nice. The skylight allowed for nice light in a small space and the internet was fast. Despite being in the middle of construction of an addition on their house, the gardens and yard were kept in great condition and will soon be even better. Samantha and Peter thought of everything we needed and more. It was a really fantastic airbnb experience.
I love this studio. It's very cozy and the bed was so comfy. It's perfect for our 2 days and 1 night trip to Seattle. Samantha is very nice and she even left muffins for us for the next day. I love how the studio has everything we need, small refrigerator, tv, dvd player, hair dryer, and it's very quiet.
It's perfect for travelers who travel by cars. The studio is not far at all from N Aurora ave and there's a street parking spot. We will be back here again whenever we need a place to stay in Seattle. I can't recommend the studio + Samantha enough! Thank you!
Samantha was an excellent communicator, very welcoming and accommodating. The studio is beautifully and tastefully decorated in sage green and rust hues--very relaxing. The location was wonderful, about 15 minutes to downtown Seattle and the same distance to Edmonds, where we were attending a day of Rick Steves travel classes. No need to use the freeway either, so we avoided much traffic and had an easy commute to our southerly and northerly destinations. Strongly recommend Samantha as host and the studio as a great place to stay in the Seattle area.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were delighted by the little touches that our host put in to it! The place itself is beautiful and exactly what we needed while visiting friends and family. Samantha is great at communicating quickly - I couldn't have asked for a better host! I would recommend this place to anyone and would absolutely stay here again.
We loved our stay in Samantha's studio. It was very clean, cozy, and private. We highly recommend staying here if you are in seattle for a few days! Thanks Sam!
A great place to stay, very private and cosy. Not only french-pressed coffee in the room - but half and half in the fridge! A morning snack too.
Samantha is a lovely host and helpful with recommending places to visit and restaurants to check out.
This is a really cool space that provides many of the basic comforts a traveller could need- the heating and luxurious shower were especially appreciated. This host realllly know what they're doing, and the effort put in is clearly visible :) Also provided was a stack of some great movies in case we needed to kill some time and a few snacks (Amazing apple muffins?!! and OJ/Ccoffee) in case we felt peckish. I can see it being a great place for a single traveller up to a small family. A cab ride from the studio to right downtown on a Sat night cost roughly $22.
The Backyard Studio was sweet, clean, quiet and comfortable. Parking was a breeze. Samantha and Peter were great in all their communications. We would definitely stay there again!
We like the Greenwood studio. It is private, very clean and a pleasant place.
Clean & pleasant MIL. A bit far north from downtown SEA, but the Greenwood neighborhood has plenty to offer on it's own. Easy street parking.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
