Maria provided timely and friendly communication and the place was perfect -clean, quiet & homely.
We enjoyed this well-located, roomy 3-story condo with free on-street-only parking for a week over the holidays. Graham kindly checked in to see that we had everything we needed. The unit could use a little TLC, and the mattresses--at least in room 1--replaced, but all the necessities were available, including the use of a clothes washer and drier. Thank you, Graham and Maria, for accommodating us at the last minute!
This apartment was lovely and spacious, and decorated with many beautiful photos. We were supplied with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The teas and ice-making fridge were a bonus! The apartment is in a great location, and is only a short walk to a supermarket, restaurants and busses to the city.
Absolutely beautiful place in a perfect, central location. Shops, restaurants (try Paseo's sandwiches!) , and transportation nearby. Graham was a kind host and knew the local scene well. Highly recommended!
Graham's townhouse was extremely comfortable! The location is fantastic and Graham was very welcoming. We enjoyed the sunlight in the common kitchen/living room and the comfy bed.
We had fun during our one week stay with Graham. Both Graham and his dog Sophie were very friendly and Graham made sure he was available if we had any questions about the place or needed suggestions for places to go and eat in Seattle. After hearing I was a cyclist, he even offered to lend me his bike to use!
The Fremont location, while a few miles from downtown, is very close to a bus stop that gets you to downtown in about 10 minutes. It is also close to Ballard, Fremont, and Wallingford downtowns--walkable even. The place is cozy and convenient and Graham makes you feel at home.
We really enjoyed our visit to Seattle and our first experience with Airbnb. Graham made a great host. He offered to meet us at our bus stop when we (he) discovered we were pretty inept at working thru the transit system for our first time. As a non-city girl, I will think long and hard before I try Seattle's Metro Line again. The room was everything I expected and we settled in right away.
