Hello fellow travelers,
Save some money and have a great time in Seattle! Rent this comfortable studio (private suite), furnished room with a queen bed, a 3/4 bathroom with large shower, a very basic kitchenette and a private entrance. This studio is on the first floor of my townhouse. The room faces east towards the street. The studio gets plenty of natural light and is furnished with noise reducing curtains and blinds that help reduce outside noise. The studio is also equipped with a noise machine. Free WiFi is available.
Please feel free to ask questions, I look forward to hearing from you.
Note: The Viaduct has a few closures a year, but it should not effect your trip into Downtown or to other parts of Seattle from my place. And it will certainly not take you much longer than the main route. Closure notifications can be made by the City of Seattle a week prior. If you happen to be here during a closure, please talk to me and I will let you know which alternative routes to take... that way you don't waste your time driving around in circles ( = you get the simplest route from A to B). The buses will be rerouted into Downtown, but the route number stays the same. Taking the bus should not affect your commute into downtown.
* Please check out house rules.

What an absolutely amazing place to stay! My (now) husband and I stayed with Maddy in Seattle where we got married and had our honeymoon. Maddy's place was so clean, comfortable, and easy to access. We took the bus from the airport and it stopped literally right in front of her place.
We had an amazing honeymoon in Seattle, and we are especially thankful for Maddy and how amazing her place was to stay at. So cozy and wonderful.
Next time we come to Seattle, we are definitely staying with Maddy again if she's still here.
My friend and I stayed for 3 nights at this studio. It was clean, cozy and quite welcoming. Maddy's description of her studio was just as she described on her page. The bed was real comfy, I had no trouble sleeping through the night. The neighborhood was peaceful too!
We had some pretty hot weather in Seattle during our stay and I must say it did get hot in the studio. Maddy provides a couple of fans for such times and they were perfect.
I would definitely be more than happy staying at Maddy's place when I return to Seattle.
We had a pleasant time at Maddys place in seattle. The place was bigger than we expected and was perfect for what we needed. The bed was ultra comfy and it was super easy to get downtown - just across the road was the bus stop! We didn't get to meet Maddy, but the place was set up perfectly and easy to find, so we didn't need to contact her for anything.
Definitely recommend for someone wanting to explore Seattle!
The "Cozy Studio" is a clean, comfortable, and secure room is SW Seattle. For a short stay, it would be impossible to find a place of similar quality without paying the sky-high Seattle prices. Maddy is very professional, easy to deal with, and runs an efficient operation. Due to the existence of the West Seattle Bridge, the city center is in close range to the north, while the airport is a quick drive in the opposite direction. I'll gladly return on my next visit!
Mandy's place was absolutely wonderful. It was really easy to contact her when needed and very easy to find the place. The description of the place on the listing is completely accurate. In fact, it was a little bigger than I expected. We had everything we needed and more. I especially enjoyed the books and magazines set out about visiting Seattle. They were really helpful in figuring out places to visit. The place is, although on the opposite side of downtown, very close to a lot of other great places to see and not very far from downtown. Overall, we had a great experience. Thank you, Maddy!
We never actually got to meet our host Maddy during our stay, though she was available via text and phone and responded quickly when we had questions. The space was clean and cozy and looks as described in the photos. The host provided us with towels and basic toiletries for our use during the stay. The room includes a mini fridge (with a super tiny freezer space) and a microwave. It also includes a coffee maker and coffee for you to make. It was right across the street from the bus stop to downtown and was a 2 minute car ride to a shopping center which included Target and other stores and restaurants. It was about 15 minutes to drive to downtown from here. We were able to easily find a spot for our car using on street parking, however as the host indicated, do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
Not being familiar with the Seattle area, we did not know what the neighborhood would be like before we arrived. The place is located on a very busy street which has cars and buses on it into the night hours. The place does not have AC as indicated in the listing, however we stayed in Mid June, when the temperatures were in the low 80's which made the room HOT. Opening the window gave some air flow, however the street noise and lights coming in required us to close the curtains which limited the air flow. The host did provide us with several fans which helped a bit, but I can only imagine how warm it will be in there as the summer proceeds.
The host does offer wifi, but it was spotty and unreliable during our stay.
This place was GREAT!! It was very much set up like a hotel with lots of privacy. It's a great deal and close to the city. Maddy is very kind and a fantastic hostess, making sure I had gotten the instructions for the place before my trip. You can tell she cares by all the tiny details in the place from the folded toilet paper to the nice welcoming card left next to the bed. This was my first time doing Airbnb and thanks to this pleasant stay, it won't be my last. My only complaint is, when we came back from a long day, the studio was very toasty and overly warm. Everything else was great! The bed was very comfortable, the fridge was very convenient for all the left overs and the room as a whole felt very clean and fresh. A perfect size for two people wanting to see the city. I had such a wonderful time! and I'd like to thank Maddy again for everything!
