A great Seattle home in an excellent location. Matt made everything really easy, from booking to arrival to checkout. His house is very nice, in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to everything you need. Hope to return!
Matt was very thorough and accommodating, providing all the info/help one could want. The house is sensational, with very appealing Japanese influence in furnishings and spatial arrangements, a wonderful array of light-filled rooms and outdoor deck, and a knock-out skylight in the bathroom. All the necessary kitchen equipment and tools are provided for an easy, fuss-free visit. I'm sorry we couldn't stay longer.
Matt's Zen Retreat is even lovelier than you see in the pictures. It was so comfortable and had every amenity. His instructions were clearly laid out for everything from wifi and the steam shower to neighborhood attractions. His decor is tasteful and the beds are super comfy. Even the landscaping is a dream. We'll definitely be back!
Zen Retreat was a perfect home base for our first trip to Seattle. Matt's home is exactly as described and is even more beautiful in person. The neighborhood is very peaceful and is within a short drive/walk to coffee shops and restaurants. The location was convenient to everything we wanted to do and getting around was very easy. Matt was available if we needed him and checked in via text. We would definitely stay at Zen Retreat again, especially to take advantage of that steam shower!

About the Host, Matt
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.
