This was my second booking for the cottage with Joyce. The first was an extended stay, the second a recent weekend. The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is lovely on a sunny day. The bed is extremely comfortable; the fridge is just big enough for everything you need for snacks and beverages for lounging in the garden or a picnic at Gas Works Park a short ways away. There are a huge range of dining places in walking distance. A relatively new one and a favorite for me is Bounty on 45th and Stone way--comfortable coffee shop ++ where you can get grilled sandwiches, coffee, beer (including growler fills!) and free movies and popcorn on Friday nights.
Contrary to what another previous guest suggested, I found the photos to be an excellent reflection of the space. It was very clean, comfortable, and well appointed for everything I needed. Joyce is great--helpful and extremely warm and friendly but not at all obtrusive.
Highly recommend the central location, this space, and Joyce as a terrific host if you are planning a trip to Seattle!
Pictures are old, the place is starting to look a bit rundown. Mattress is stained. Host twice turned off water without notification to check her pipes for leaks - it's nice to be able to flush the toilet and wash your hands after using the bathroom in the morning.
Ted, I was a bit concerned when you stayed in for days at a time, the rain here in winter can turn one grey, but I"m stunned at your representation? I did notify you about checking for the leak, and neither time was the water off for more than 15 minutes in a 2 month stay?. Yes, there is a coffee stain where a guest spilled.. under the memory foam pad and mattress pad, you really are searching. The new remodel with mid-century furniture finished a few days before you moved in will not be to everyone"s taste. Sorry I didn't get pictures before you moved in, I didn't want to intrude to take any. I just took some after I cleaned the rug from your dogs footprints ( gratis)and will post today while waiting for airbnb's photographer. I hope you feel happier soon.
The cottage was cozy and comfortable and within a great section of Seattle with lots of shops, restaurants, big trees and nice houses. Joyce was super accommodating. Great experience.
Joyce was very friendly and welcoming, as was her little pup! The cottage was adorable and comfortable, and the backyard was enchanting. I made a mistake with my reservation and even ended up having to leave earlier than expected and Joyce was willing to work with me. This is a great comfy place to crash after bouncing around Seattle.
I hard a wonderful stay at Joyce's cottage! It's a perfect little home-base for exploring Seattle. She's a very kind hostess.
Joyce's little cottage was very cute and cozy. Having coffee, tea, water, etc. was very convenient, too. Close to bus line, the town and shops, and a park. I enjoyed a little table in the yard where I could sit out in the sun to eat and drink. Perfect place to enjoy a summer in Seattle. I wish I could stayed longer!!
The little cottage worked great for me while I was in Seattle for a week. Nice and cozy! It has the most beautiful garden with chairs out front as well. Really nice neighborhood. Joyce even put a beer in the fridge for me for when I arrived. :)
