The Treehouse is near light-rail (Columbia City Station), bus service (Columbia City/Rainier Boulevard) and bike trails. We have both on and off street parking available.

Our little family enjoyed a comfortable stay at the Columbia City Treehouse Apartment. The accommodations were true to description. We greatly appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. It made making meals a breeze. Jay and his family were very welcoming. We hope to come back in the summer so we can do more exploring in the neighborhood!
Jay was a great host - very welcoming and helpful. The neighborhood was easy to navigate, quiet but also with good access to restaurants and places of interest. The place was super clean and accommodating - Jay has organized it so that while he is accessible, everything you need to know is right there, including a folder with information to help. The accommodations were very comfortable and the way it is set up allows us to go out and back without feeling intrusive on Jay. This was our first Airbnb experience and we look forward to using it again. This was way better than a hotel.
The treehouse was amazing! It was just as described. It's located in a quiet neighborhood with a bit of a walk to public transit. We had a car to get around and it was easy to find parking on the street. We preferred sleeping on the futon over the bed because it was in front of the TV and was firmer. The small wall heater was able to heat the place quickly. Jay kept the bathroom stocked with fresh towels, the bedroom with extra pillows and blankets, and the kitchen with lots of kitchenware.
Had a fine stay in the Treehouse. Nice neighbourhood and chill apartment. All was very clean and all things you need for a short stay was present. Thanks Jay for your hospitality.
Next time I'm in Seattle, I will book this adorable little apartment with Jay. The pictures where true to how the place looked. Jay was easy to communicate with and the perfect host. I loved it and highly recommend it!
The Treehouse was my first Airbnb experience and I enjoyed it thoroughly! We were greeted with the keys to our private apartment fully socked with kitchen items and fresh towels. The tv has cable and the couch is extremely comfy. We had an easy walk to catch the bus to the Seahawks game. Parking was a breeze next to the apartment as well. Staying at the Treehouse was refreshing, as it gave us the peace and tranquility that a hotel simply would not provide. I recommend this specific airbnb to anyone staying in the greater Seattle area!
We enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse. Jay and his family are great people and have always made us feel welcome. We look forward to many visits in the future.
