Wendy is an awesome host, she is just incredibly helpful and friendly and a very natural and human person. She makes you feel like you are at home.
We had a terrífic stay at Wendy's place! The flat looks just like the pictures! It a is a very comfortable place equipped with everything you need! Wendy was very prompt in responding to my requests, she stocked the fridge with food for us! She also has a Keurig machine with lost of K cups for breakfast! And yes, the SHOWER is awesome! Look no further and stay at Wendy's!
Thank you for your hospitality Wendy!
Wendy is absolutely an awesome host. The place she offers to us is exactly like how the picture show, smells good and the lights make the house so warm and so welcome. Thank you Wendy !
Wendy's place was great; just as advertised: clean, comfortable and absolutely cozy. It was the perfect spot for my wife, 4-year old daughter and myself for the Thanksgiving holiday. Having a full kitchen and fridge was great - we could just go to the Safeway a few minutes away cook 3 meals a day (we didn't do that...but we could have, and you can if you stay here!).
When we are back in Seattle, we would absolutely stay here again.
Also, the shower is incredible.
Also also, Full Tilt Ice Cream Parlor on 16th street: small batch ice cream and pinball - does it get any better than that combination?
But moving on...it's very easy to navigate all over the city and a breeze to get to and from the airport (we got an Uber in less than 10 minutes when I put in the order at 5:00 AM the morning we left).
This was our first time using AirBnB and, thanks to the wonderful space our host provided for us, we are definitely true believers now.
Wendy was a wonderful host and her place is great - cozy, located in a nice neighborhood and looks exactly as the photos. Hope to visit her again sometime :)
Wendy – studio apt.
My wife and 6 year old daughter stayed at this location for 8 days in October. Everything was as we
expected it from the airbnb ad. We enjoyed the convenience of being 10 miles from downtown Seattle
and about the same distance to Sea-Tac but not actually being in the city. It was a great little area to
come home to at night after a day of sightseeing. Wendy took care of any issues we had, which were
limited to how to use the heating in the apartment and that was all.
The only convenience which would have made it a touch nicer would be more TV channels especially for
local sports. Not that we vacationed to Seattle to watch TV but it would have made catching up on all
the sports news a little easier. We did have WiFi so logging into NetFlix wasn’t an issue for my family.
No complaints... would highly recommend to anyone looking at visiting Seattle that doesn’t want to stay
downtown but rather in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood within close proximity to all attractions.
We had a wonderful time at Wendy's place! There was a separate entrance to the apartment so it felt very private and the area was very quiet. Wendy had a house manual that described in detail everything we needed to know about the space. She even left us a bottle of wine and a few pastries to welcome us!
The space was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Everything was exactly as described (even better!). She even has a keurig coffee machine with a variety of coffee K-cups, which was perfect for us as we are definitely coffee addicts!
My motto: The rest is bonus. Know your purpose and discover your daily Wow.
Wendy is a long time Seattle resident. She enjoy several outdoor activities, ranging from a walk in the park to backpacking adventures. Wendy has remodeled her home to create a basement apartment that is bright and welcoming.
