We had a great stay in Redmond in this suite. Brenda stocked the kitchen with basic supplies which was so helpful during our busy days. The rooms were spacious, clean, quiet, and private. It was so nice to have an outdoor space to relax in as well. Everything we could have needed (iron, wifi, coffee maker, in-suite laundry, cable, alarm clock, post-it notes, pens, guidebooks to the area, bathrobes, plenty of hanging space, etc) was available. Brenda met me and showed me around the suite, and made me feel very much at home while affording us plenty of privacy. My only regret is that we did not have time to hang out with our host-dog!
Very nice welcome from Brenda.
Brenda always available when we have some question, and very helpful.
The place was very convenient, close to Redmond town center and grocery store.
We absolutely loved staying in Redmond at this location. Brenda is incredibly accommodating, asking about our drink needs before arriving & working it out that 4 of us could stay here. It was a fabulous 1st experience using Airbnb & my only regret was we didn't have more time during our trip to chat with Brenda more & play with her adorable dog!
This was our first Airbnb experience and Brenda and Roger made it an absolutely positive experience. Brenda kept in touch with us and made sure they were around to greet us upon arrival. They are so friendly and personable and the suite was perfect. I was a little wary at first because we arrived on one of the hottest days in Seattle. Fortunately, the suite was a partial basement and there wasn't a need for a/c at all. They set up a cot for our daughter and she swears it is the most comfortable bed in the world. The queen bed in separate bedroom was also very comfortable. Brenda really put a lot of thought into supplying the suite because we had everything, e.g toiletries, linens, well stocked kitchen, etc. We didn't cook much because Redmond, Kirkland and Bellevue have such a wonderful variety of tasty restaurants. Overall, their suite was a nice oasis to hang out in. Also, we had some Sophie time (time with their lovable and sweet black Lab). We will definitely try to stay in Brenda and Roger's Airbnb again should our daughter enroll at Digipen.
Brenda was a great host! She made us feel very welcome - she even emailed to see what we like to drink in the morning. The suite was large, nice, and clean. The neighborhood is right next to downtown Redmond. So, we were able to walk to dinner.
Brenda & Roger were delightful hosts - the apartment was spotless and is exactly like the photos. Roger had taken the time to stock the fridge with a few local IPA's and the kitchen and bathroom were very well-stocked.
The apartment was quiet and very close to downtown Redmond. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place in east Seattle.
About the Host, Brenda
Hi! I am a married mother of two grown children (empty nest), who enjoys live music - blues, rock, jazz, as well as a good book or movie! You can find me going for a walk to a favorite espresso house on weekend mornings or taking our dog Sophie for a romp in the park. I enjoy golfing with friends, bicycling the Burke-Gilman trail to Woodinville for some wine tasting or a Redhook IPA, and having friends over for an evening on the deck. I love going to the Pike Place Market in Seattle for fresh pastries and unbelievable espresso. Spring through fall I am shopping at Redmond's Saturday Market for fresh local produce, eggs, cheese, arts and crafts. I love learning, new adventures, traveling (France & Barcelona especially), meeting people and learning about their lives - and showing them a good time.
