Thank you sheila,I had a lovely stay here, Your home is full of surprises，I like small ornaments everywhere, Fully equipped kitchen and only five minutes walking distance to Saveway let our journey more comfortable, except some noise by the cars when we sleep.
The sanctuary was very homey and cozy for being a huge house. Sheila's kitchen was amply stocked with all sorts of cooking utensils, which we didn't use, but was nice to know were there. Same with her large library. The bedrooms slept our crew of 4 people comfortably. I slept on the pull-out couch which was very comfortable. The bathtub was the biggest bonus. We had events to attend in Capitol Hill; walking, it took about 20 minutes; driving, an uber car was super cheap and took about 5 minutes.
Gorgeous house in a perfect location. Sheila's place is far enough from the hustle of the city to be quiet, but right on two bus stops to get you anywhere you want to go. She was super quick to respond and even let us check in early when we arrived ahead of schedule. Sheila's house is gorgeous and full of personality. Very comfortable and cozy.
Our family met in Seattle for a wedding and the Sanctuary was just right as a base of operations and a place to hang out together. The basics- comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, spacious and well-appointed kitchen- are all there, as well as colorful decor and personal touches. The garden is a lovely spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine. When we visit again we will not rent a car- the bus lines are very convenient and parks, stores and restaurants are within walking distance. Thank you Sheila for making your home available! Margie
Me and my friends had a great time at Sheila's garden sanctuary in Seattle. The house was in a good location within walking distance to plenty of restaurants as well as grocery stores. It also had a bus stop near the house plus getting a cab was super easy and inexpensive. The kitchen was stocked with a variety of spices as well as plenty of cooking utensils. Sheila was present during our check-out and there was a minor water leak when we arrived to the house. However, a plumber was immediately called upon to fix the leak and no other problems presented itself afterwards. The backyard was great for cooking and Sheila provided us with a couple of steaks for our grilling pleasure. The rooms were a nice size and the downstairs pull-out bed was comfortable as well. Overall, everyone in our group enjoyed our stay at Sheila's home and this was a great first airbnb experience for all of us. Thanks
Sheila's home was the perfect getaway for our family vacation. The house is very roomy, well-taken care of, and spotlessly clean. And having 3 bathrooms was such a luxury! We loved having Safeway 2 blocks away and lots of cool restaurants and shops within walking distance. Transportation was easy - any time we needed to go somewhere across town, we called Lyft and a driver was there in 5 minutes. (To get Lyft, download the free app on your iPhone. You can get your first ride free - up to $25 - if you enter this promo code when you sign up: ALWA17. It is much less expensive and much faster than using a cab.)
