The Treehouse is located in the Columbia City neighborhood - an historic and amazingly active neighborhood in SE Seattle. We sit halfway between Columbia City and Lake Washington - above a large urban park. Thus the Treehouse is a quiet yet accessible place to stay in Seattle.
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.
Check-in: 3:00 PM - exceptions can be made with prior 48 hour notice

Columbia city is a great suburb of Seatlle. We fell in love with the local spots and enjoyed the neighborhood and all its sights and sounds. The tree house was a cozy spot with plenty of space for 3. It's a bit distant from the city if you do not have a car, but transit was very accessible. Bring your walking shoes and enjoy the neighborhood!
Very clean and comfortable in a quiet neighbourhood with ample parking. Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent experience with Jay even though I did not actually have the pleasure of meeting him. We arranged for arrival and keys through SMS and airbnb messaging and we had no problems finding the treehouse or getting settled.
Everything was as described, the area was very pleasant, and we enjoyed our stay. We would be happy to stay again the next time we are in Seattle.
The Columbia City Tree House was our first AirBnB and I would say we were spoiled by it. The tree house accommodations were great. The place was what was depicted in the pictures. It was very clean and Jay made it very easy to get in and settled despite our very late arrival.
Jay and his family and friends made the stay that much better and were very helpful and friendly. Locationwise, the treehouse is very easy to get to from Downtown Seattle as well as the airport. Columbia City also has plenty to do, see and eat. The treehouse is a very central location but still far enough that you get nice, quite nights.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Seattle.
We have stayed at the Columbia City Treehouse Apartment at least 3 times and will definitely be back. It is always clean, the kitchen is well stocked, the internet is dependable, and the cable has a variety of choices for relaxing in the evening. We can walk to restaurants, a movie theater, and some shopping. The bus and light rail are within walking distance to travel into downtown Seattle. The price is very reasonable and Jay is very responsive to your needs. This is an excellent find in a quiet neighborhood. I highly recommend this great apartment.
