ABOUT THE PLACE
Guests have the entire home which includes two bedrooms, a steam/shower spa, living room, kitchen and dining room. Guests come and go as they wish. I am always available in person or by phone if guests have questions or need any assistance. The downstairs apartment is occupied by another tenant. All individuals and couples are welcome!
Common sense house rules. Ask me any questions for clarification.
We traveled to Seattle on girl's weekend to attend a concert and though not as close to the venue as hoped, this was a great place to stay....very "zen." The furnishings and decor were nice and the overall feel very peaceful. We did not hear the downstairs tenant at all. The steam shower was a nice addition and so relaxing. It was a short walk to the Columbia City restaurants. We are very happy to have found this place and would definitely stay again if traveling to the area. Thank you Matt for everything!
From the minute we knew were staying at the Zen Retreat, Matt made it seem like our well being was his first concern. The house was exactly as he described....maybe better. We were so comfortable and felt so much at home. A sweet retreat! Hope we can return!!!
We had a wonderful stay at the zen retreat! Everything was clean and as described, in a great location near Seward Park. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking our own meals.
Beautiful home! Had everything we needed for our very short stay. Shower was a bonus. Would stay here again, Matt made everything easy and comfortable for our stay. Thank you so much.
Stay here. You will not regret it.
Matt's home is gorgeous. Tastefully and creatively decorated, extremely clean, and well-appointed. We stayed with another couple and found we had plenty of room for the four of us. We enjoyed the space so much that after some exploring downtown we opted to return home to make our own dinner and relax in the house. The steam shower is an oasis. You will not want to get out. The neighborhood is clean, friendly, and close to the water. Excellent for strolling. PCC Natural Market is 2 blocks away and a conveniently placed stairway, at the end of the block, makes it a very quick walk. Though we didn't meet Matt, he was responsive and communicative. His messages were thoughtful and anticipated every question we may have so, by the time we arrived, we had all the information we needed. We're grateful for the time we had in his beautiful home and are hoping to return in the summer to take advantage of the fantastic deck. Thanks, Matt!
My hubby, and sons are in agreement with me that the Zen Retreat was the perfect place to relax and unwind while enjoying the sights of Seattle. Its location up the hill from Columbia City shopping and restaurants was ideal. The house was comfy, beautiful, and equipped with lots of amenities. I would definitely stay there again, if we return. Thanks, Matt!
We really enjoyed staying at Matt's home. Matt was really responsive and approved us to stay last minute. The home is just like in the pictures only more beautiful and most importantly it's really clean. The yard is gorgeous. Wonderful neighborhood and walkable to some really nice businesses. Would definitely stay here again!

I am a biologist and enjoy outdoor recreation and exploring all the beauty the PNW has to offer. I also enjoy travel in the U.S. and abroad. I seek out great restaurants and cultural activities when I am exploring a new city. I am low-key, trustworthy, and generally most people like me.
